For me, perfume is one of those beauty items that can be tailored to each individual person as every scent smells different on each person.
I’ve always been a huge fan of perfume, ever since my early teen years when I wore the likes of So…? and the Harajuku lovers collection – do you guys remember these?! They were the cutest little bottles and they smelled incredible!
My perfume collection today is a little more sophisticated and includes fragrances from the likes of Marc Jacobs and Chloé.
Change is a concept that intimidates almost everyone; it’s the fear of the unknown, the scary possibilities of what’s to come and the uncertainty of the future.
The concept of change used to be something that would scare the absolute crap out of me; can you even imagine going into something totally blind and not knowing what was going to happen?!
But in the last few years, I’ve become incredibly accustomed to change, I’ve even come to love it and embrace anything new that appears in my life. Which is why today’s post is all about learning to embrace change and accepting that it doesn’t always have to be terrifying.
So unless you’ve really been trying to avoid me on the internet (which tbh, I probably wouldn’t blame you, I haven’t been the most fun lol) you’ll know that just over a week ago I had my tonsils removed.
It’s been an incredibly long time coming – as in two years of tonsilitis long time – so when they were finally extracted from my throat I was unbelievably happy. However, the pain that I’ve been in for the last week or so has been literally unbearable. I’ve slept a remarkable amount (which hasn’t been the worst tbh) and I’ve watched so many episodes of Friends and New Girl that I could literally recite the entire script of every single series. I’ve also been in so much pain and I can’t even begin to tell you how much having your tonsils removed hurts.
In order to aid my recovery I’ve been using a number of things, (alongside the copious amount of painkillers that I was supplied with) including these Get More Vitamin A* drinks and multivitamin gum*. Here’s how I’ve been getting on for the past few weeks.
Weekend breaks are often my favourite type of holiday as you’re able to see and enjoy a certain place in just a few days. Whether it’s travelling to somewhere in Europe, or you decide to just spend a weekend in a nearby city, weekends away are often just what we need.
We’ve been on our fair share of weekends away over the past year or so and we’ve always managed to do everything we want while we’re away. You don’t have to spend lavish amounts of money on a holiday in order for you to enjoy yourself; sometimes the best places are the unexpected ones.
In today’s post, I’m sharing all my best tips and tricks on how to treat yourself to a weekend away on a budget.
Back in the summer of 2011, my dad was on the phone to some ‘business guy’ and he wrote on a piece of paper saying “do you want to move to New Zealand?” and slid it over to my mum. My mum wrote back “yes” and the rest, as they say, is history.
My parents aren’t your normal run-of-the-mill kind of people; they’re weird and wonderful and that’s why it only took two short sentences to decide to move to the other side of the world. I was in year 8 at the time and I was in no frame of mind for my entire life to be uprooted and relocated to the other side of the world. I had a solid group of friends, I loved my school and I knew that I’d miss my family terribly. In retrospect however, moving to New Zealand was one of the best things that’s ever happened to me and I want to share my experience with you all in today’s post.
Here’s what it’s actually like to move to the other side of the world.
