    Lanzarote: A Travel Guide to Playa Blanca

    I have just returned from a very much needed holiday in Lanzarote, where, despite continuing to work on my dissertation which is due THIS MONTH, I had a lovely time and had a chance to recharge, soak up the sun and relax. You may have already seen my Lanzarote Look book where I have put together a kind of outfit diary of what I wore whilst I was away.  I went away with Josh and my family for a couple of weeks, Josh came out and stayed with me, my grandparents and their friend Margaret and then after a week of cocktails and sunbathing, Josh and Margaret went home, to…

    What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

    After a hectic week of Uni deadlines and working, I’m super excited to finally be packing for my holiday! Very soon I’ll be a jetting off for a bit of sun in Lanzarote with Josh and my family. I thought I’d do a little bit of content on what I’ve been packing to take with me, as if you’re nosey like me, you might find it interesting. So I’m starting off with what’s in my travel makeup bag! Usually I try and be as minimal as possible when packing beauty products to take away with me, however this trip will be nearly 2 weeks so I want to make sure…

    March To Do List

    So we’re already in March, the year is steaming on ahead and I’ve decided to jot down everything I want to achieve this month. A kind of March to do list.  It might be interesting to you, it might not, but it also then holds me accountable to tick everything off my virtual to-do list for the next few weeks. A lot of my goals are very much University related, any student will tell you that around Easter is an absolute nightmare for deadlines and they all seem to come at once. So that leads me nicely onto my biggest and most important aim for the month. I want/need my…

    February Favourites

    With the end of February drawing near, I’m hoping that Spring may finally be in the air- it’s about time we had some warmer weather instead of the relentless biting cold. I’ve managed to accumulate a few favourites over the past few weeks, although admittedly not as many as January, but then again it is a shorter months so I suppose that’s to be expected. Not to mention I’ve spent the last couple of weeks glued to my laptop, a slave to my degree, so that really cuts down on the time to find new things I like. First up, a foodie favourite! I’ve had the Tanya Bakes book by…

    Barcelona

    I’m finally here to break my radio silence, I’m sorry there hasn’t been a blog post for a while, I’ve been absolutely swamped with Uni work (2 deadlines in a week!!) and as you may have guessed from the title I’ve been busy taking in the beautiful sights of Barcelona so that’s what I’m going to tell you all abut today. A while ago Josh and I booked ourselves a long weekend for the end of October to catch one last bit of sun before the weather drops below freezing and the Christmas rush makes work manic! We went from Friday to Monday which was just enough time to cram…
