April Favourites | 2017

I want to start incorporating more favourites posts onto my blog. Hopefully I can make this a monthly thing but I won’t make any promises! With uni coursework deadlines and exams nearing, I’m on a tight schedule so let’s just get straight into it! BEAUTY: Non Matte Foundations: I’m normally a matte girl through and through, but recently I’ve really enjoyed wearing a slightly dewier foundation due to my skin being much drier than usual over the past month.

The number one item on my bucket list is to travel the world so I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of the top 10 places I want to visit.

THAILAND ADVENTURES – BANGKOK

Last June, I took an incredibly exciting 2 week trip to Thailand with my friend Laura. First on our travel agenda was Bangkok. Bangkok is the capital city and is more modernised than some areas of Thailand, yet still filled to the brim with Thai culture and history. One of the first things we did was take a long tail boat down the Chao Phraya river which allowed us to see some stunning scenery and temples and get a real feel…

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS 2016

Christmas came and left in a flash. All that build up for one day sometimes seems a bit excessive but when you see the face of loved ones when you give them their gifts it does seem worth it in the end. I had a lovely, quiet Christmas with my family and I hope you all had a wonderful time too. It’s now February so this post is long overdue! I considered not even posting this but you splendid lot…
