February 2016

I’ve been to Budapest a total of 3 times now. The first when I was about 10 years old where I can’t remember a single thing, the second on an interrailing trip where we whizzed in and out of the City in what felt like a matter of minutes and the third this month when my boyfriend and I went for Valentines weekend. I love Budapest and would recommend it to anyone who loves gorgeous views and amazing nightlife, oh and cheap alcohol too…We stayed from a Thursday to a

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

With less than 2 weeks to go until Mother’s Day, I thought I’d put together a gift guide for those of us who are completely clueless when it comes to treating that very special lady in our lives! I normally really struggle when it comes to buying presents for my mum due to the fact that my mum is one of those people who uses the ‘oh don’t waste your money on me’ and ‘I don’t want anything’ line every birthday, Christmas and Mother’s Day. This year however, the lovely

Sleek is one of my favourite high street makeup brands. I absolutely adore their Contour Kit and Solstice Highlighting Palette so when the Gold Standard i-Lust Eyeshadow Palette caught my eye a couple of months ago, I couldn’t wait to give it a go. On a night out, I love to wear a smokey eye and I thought the shades in this palette would be so perfect for that smouldering look.  The Gold Standard i-Lust palette (buy here) contains 6 shades; 4 silky shimmer powders and 2 rich cream shadows,

One healthy meal that I absolutely love is salad. Not those full of leaves kinda salads that just aren’t filling in the slightest but those ones that are packed full of so much flavour. Of course, if they look pretty too then that’s a bonus! I recently made this salmon, avocado, sundried tomato and feta salad and those typical blogger thoughts came into my head “I just have to blog about this.” It was healthy, easy to make and so delicious…what more could you want?!  I chopped up all the ingredients,

It’s the day of the year where we’re either downing vodka in a bar, eating our own bodyweight in pizza or being wined and dined in a fancy restaurant. I’ll admit I used to absolutely hate Valentines Day like probably the majority of the single population but instead of feeling sorry for ourselves (well actually we did that anyway) my best friend and I would spend it doing a combination of the first two…pizza followed by vodka and then no doubt even more pizza after the night out! This year,

It had been on the top of my makeup wishlist for quite some time so when I received the stunning Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow for Christmas, I was over the moon. I had literally envied everyone who was lucky enough to own Bronze and Glow and had religiously liked every single Instagram picture of the palette every time it came into view, wishing it would magically appear in my makeup bag…if only that actually happened ey?! After over a month of playing around with it, I thought it

The Mauve Coat

Every year I find the search for the perfect winter coat such a struggle. Don’t get me wrong, there’s always so many out there but none of them ever seem to fit the criteria I have in my head. Ever get that, when you imagine the perfect outfit in your head and it just doesn’t exist? This year was no different. I trailed around the shops trying on one after the other and I just kept coming home empty handed and disappointed. Luckily, when I was having my usual Missguided browse,
