A trip to Thailand doesn’t quite feel complete without coming face to face with some elephants. Bathing these beautiful creatures is one of Chiang Mai’s top tourist attractions which has resulted in a large number of companies offering the activity, making it extremely hard to decide who to hand over your hard earned pennies to. My number one rule for choosing which company to go with is to look for a sanctuary that looks after and cares for the elephants and one that does NOT offer riding. I love animals and

You could say that we went from one end of the spectrum to the other after departing Dubai and arriving in Bangkok. From a super modern and almost peaceful place to the mayhem of tuk-tuk drivers, street food stalls and loud music. It was very different to say the least. Arriving late at night on Khao San Road trying to find the sign for our accommodation amongst the herds of tourists partying on the street and locals trying to usher us into their bars, convincing us to buy buckets, shots

We booked our flights for travelling through STA Travel which I’ll go into more detail about in a later post. The first flight we booked was London Gatwick to Bangkok which included a stop in Dubai for a few hours. We decided instead of stopping for a few hours, we would stay in Dubai for a couple of days and break up that extra long journey to Bangkok which also meant we’d get to explore Dubai, a place neither of us had been to before. The night before we flew, we

On our very first date my boyfriend and I spoke about how we would love to go travelling one day but never did I think 3 years on we’d actually be about to set off on our journey together. I’m currently writing this as an excited but emotional and nervous wreck at the thought that shortly I’ll be sat on a plane heading into the unknown. Travel is one of my biggest passions. There is nothing I love more than discovering new places and I hate staying in one place for too

Grab a cup of tea, you’re in for a long one! Seeing everyone graduating recently made me think back to my graduation a whole 3 years ago now. I can’t even describe how quickly that 3 years has gone by or to be honest, how quickly the 3 years at university went by either. It’s a topic I’ve never really touched upon since I actually graduated when I wrote a no doubt cringe-worthy post back in 2014 which you can have a little laugh at here if you fancy. I’m

This year has been so hectic which unfortunately meant that blogging had to take a bit of a backseat in my life. I haven’t really blogged regularly since back in March/April time and it’s actually been so much harder to get back into it than I thought it would. Every time I’d go to write a new post, I’d suffer from bloggers block and couldn’t even think of what word to write let alone a whole blog post and my mind would just drift to other things which eventually resulted

Summer Glow-Getters

How gorgeous is the weather this week?! It’s got me so excited for summer and it means I can finally switch up my makeup routine to a lighter and more glowy finish. In summer, for me, a dewy base is an absolute MUST. I love that natural bronzed glow and together these products work perfectly to create it. Primer is a must for me especially when the weather is warm as there is more of a chance that the heat could affect the lasting power of your base and I love

When I was younger, I thought by 24 I’d have my own business and be living in a penthouse apartment in New York overlooking Central Park and spending my evenings drinking cocktails and dining at the fanciest of restaurants. In reality, I’m currently sat in my bedroom in Leeds working, constantly wondering why the money in my bank account just goes so quickly when I have nothing to show for it and well, a holiday to New York would be a dream let alone living there. I wanted to be

Some of my all time favourite makeup products are actually from the high street. I often find that just because something is three times the price of another product, it doesn’t always make it better or THAT much better. The following products are absolutely amazing and I’ve repurchased them again and again. I use them ALL the time and the best part is, they’re all super cheap so it’s great if you’re on a budget!!   Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (here) This is one of my absolute favourite foundations and

So, I’ve filled up my first little Z palette and in the process of doing so, I discovered some must-have shades that I neeeed to share with you! I did a post on my first impression of Makeup Geek eyeshadows here so I won’t go into too much detail about them other than to say that they are amazingly pigmented, blend SO well and are so cheap considering they are such good quality! I bought the eyeshadows from Beauty Bay as I find the delivery to always be super quick and it’s completely free for
