American Beauty Haul

This post has been sitting in my drafts for a while, but better late than never!

No trip to the States would be complete without (multiple) visits to Sephora, right? Although I have heard through the grapevine that the beauty haven is coming soon to London, but we shall see...

Strangely enough, whilst in New York, I didn't feel particularly inclined to shop and I do have slight regrets about that now, but at the time I just wanted to see the city and explore during my limited time there. But obviously Sephora had to happen. And I have a general rule - I don't buy things that are available at home. The exchange rate is terrible at the moment anyway, so it's not like I'd be getting a better deal stocking up on my Urban Decay Naked Concealer!

Reflecting on 2016


They say that New Year is a good time to reflect on the year that has passed and get refreshed, motivated and energised for the year ahead. I'm not one for making grand resolutions that I've not got a hope in hell of keeping, but I do like to set myself (realistic) goals and take a moment to think back on what the past 12 months have brought me.

Our Epic USA East Coast Adventure

After a hiatus from blogging, I'm back. And I wanted to share with you some highlights from my recent trip to the States - a trip that started off as a friend's wedding in Virginia and turned into a bit of an adventure! It was an absolute dream holiday and we loved every second. (Ok maybe not the part where we shared a Greyhound bus with freshly released in-mates... let's just say it at least makes a great story)

A Weekend in London

A couple of weeks ago, Scott and I hopped on the train to London for a long weekend. We were there to see Coldplay (after waiting a good few years for them to go on tour!) and I have to say it was well worth the wait. If you ever get the chance to see them live, do it - trust me!

As usual after a weekend away I wanted to put together a little photo diary. We stayed in the Liverpool Street area due travel plans and ease of getting to Wembley from there, and I'm so glad we did. I've not spent much time in East London before, but I LOVED it. Such a laid back but cool, fun vibe and so many restaurants and bars to try, of all different styles. Scroll past the photos for our weekend in food and drink...

A Masterclass With Barburrito

Recently, the lovely Talor invited some of the Edinburgh bloggers to a masterclass at Barburrito on Lothian Road, where we'd not only get to try out making a burrito, we'd get to eat it too!

Loving Lately - Beauty Edition

I've been trying hard not to purchase too many new beauty bits recently, as I just have so much make up which doesn't get out enough. So with that said, I've recently rediscovered some old favourites and I forgot how much I love them!
