BEAUTY // Balance Me Moisture Rich Face Cream

Wednesday, 30 July 2014

Hi y'all.
I have an itsy bitsy teenie weenie (or you know massive) thing about moisturisers right now. Since I have bought the Kiehl's Skin Rescuer and loved it I have been picking up any other reasonably priced high-end skincare I can get my hands on. I've read so much about Balance Me and couldn't resist picking this moisturiser up with Marie Claire at the airport for £2.50. I had conveniently forgotten my Elemis moisturiser and I'm really quite glad I picked this one up.

WISHLIST // Pre-Vancouver

I cannot believe I move to Vancouver in just over a month. It's crazy. I don't even know how this has happened but I am rolling with it.
Anyway, I need to stop shopping because I cannot take anything with me but I have no idea what the Canadian shopping scene is like. I mean, come on - how am I going to last without River Island, Primark and Dorothy Perkins?!
I have compiled a few bits and pieces that I want right now which are potentially packable (potentially being the word).

TRAVEL // Tenerife pt. 1

Monday, 28 July 2014

Hi guys!
As you may (or may not) know, I just spent the past week in Tenerife. It was a super lovely week full of beach lazing and excursions and I just wanted to upload a few snaps from the week. Well, I say a few. There are so many I'll upload them in a couple of parts. Tenerife is such a lovely country and there is so much to do that one week was definitely not enough time. If I could go again tomorrow I would!

LOVE // The Liebster Award!

Saturday, 26 July 2014

Hello my lovelies! I have just come back off holiday to find I had been nominated for the Liebster award by two lovely people! I think this tag is so lovely and has helped me find new blogs in the past for sure. It is a fantastic way to get blogs noticed and introduced to new readers and I really, really appreciate getting tagged in this one (especially as it is the first time I have been tagged in anything ever!). So here's a mega thanks to Natalie Ann at Petal Poppet Blogs and Katie at Little Katie's Little thoughts for nominating me - go check out their blogs which are both brilliant!

BEAUTY // Kiehl's Skin Rescuer Moisturiser

Friday, 25 July 2014

Hello there!
Recently I have decided I really want to take care of my skin. I don't know whether it is due with being inspired by other bloggers or knowing I am moving to Canada where high-end skin care is so much cheaper! Either way, I do absolutely nothing when it comes to caring for my skin apart from cleansing. So I thought it was worth trying a new moisturiser. This may seem like a bit of a jump forward, spending £30 on a moisturiser, but I can explain - honestly!

Anyway, I love, love, love this moisturiser!

BEAUTY // My Holiday make-up bag

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

Hello my lovelies! I always use holidays to experiment a bit more with make up. I love bright colours and huge accessories and in general go a tad crazy. However, I always try to keep the make-up I take to a minimum. It isn't fun to have to search through a massive bag when you just want your mascara. This year I have tried to go for the bare basics and feel like I have been quite successful (in comparison to previous years)

LIFESTYLE // What's in my beach bag?

Monday, 21 July 2014

Aloha from Tenerife!
I'm here for a week and yes, that means a whole week on the beach. I've spent the past month looking for swimwear and now I finally get to wear it. Hooray!
I've seen so many posts like this and so wanted to do one myself. Here is a little look into what's on my beach bag!

READ // Books for the Beach Part 3 (Kindle Edition)

Friday, 18 July 2014

Hello my lovelies!
Now, I love a book as much as the next person but you cannot deny how convenient having a kindle/tablet is for day to day reading. When I am on campus it is so easy just to pull my iPad out and read in a spare hour off, or do some research for a lab report if I am feeling productive. You can get books so cheaply on Kindle if the authors are not very well known and I have found some fantastic authors I have loved who sell their books for just 77p! Yes - 77p!

I thought I'd just show you a few and here they are!

READ // Books for the Beach (Part 2)

Wednesday, 16 July 2014

Hello my lovelies! Here is part two of my three part series of books to read on the beach. If you want a slightly more adult book I've included three in this post. I love a dystopian novel as much as the next girl but sometimes you just want to look a bit more classy and sophis (well as sophis as a girl reading chick lit can get!)  These are my best of the bunch!

READ // Books For The Beach (Part 1)

Monday, 14 July 2014

This is the first post of a three part series concerning books I recommend this summer.
I tend to read so much over the Summer due to my lack of time during term time and these are just a few of my highly recommended books.
Of course, you do not have to read them at the beach. You can read them around the pool, in your garden, in Starbucks, wherever! I just like alliteration.

So here is part 1!

Haul // Swimwear (and some advice I wish someone had given me!)

Saturday, 12 July 2014

Hello my lovelies!
Here is my first proper post of this new blog and it concerns a type of clothing (clothing?) that has been the bane of my life this past month or so. Yes, by that, I mean swimwear.

When it comes to Summer you cannot walk ten steps down any high street without seeing size 8 mannequins wearing really skimpy bikinis reminding you that your holiday (if you are lucky) is fast approaching and you need to invest in some swimwear.

I have been searching high and low, near and far for my swimwear this year and am finally happy with my little collection - here it is!


Friday, 11 July 2014

Hello there!
Please excuse the capital letters but I am incredibly excited. Yesterday I found out, after a horrific month and a half of waiting, that I managed to get a first for my second year of my chemistry degree. Yes, I know - I may or may not have cried (okay, I cried).

Not only that, I've officially been given my grades so I am officially moving to Vancouver in less than two months. Yes, I know - I cried! Excitement does not cover it.

Please note: this is my excited face.
