Favourites posts are my absolute favourite posts in the world and I'm not quite sure why, but alas I love writing one so here is another.

Going au naturale
It's taken me a lonnnng time to feel comfortable going out in public without any make-up on but now I can say that I am. I haven't worn a dot of make-up for over 2 weeks and my skin is LOVING me for it. I don't even think about it! It saves me so much time when I'm getting ready in the morning AND I have been complimented on my skin.

Love Island
Soz, I just couldn't do a favourites post and not mention it. I am HOOKED. Like, hooked. Camilla is a complete queen and Kem is so jokes. If you're not sure what I'm on about, search it on Twitter!

Planoly App
My friend told me about this app a few weeks ago and it has literally changed my life. It basically lets you upload pictures to your Instagram feed without actually uploading them so that you can see if the picture fits in with your theme. If you're Insta addicted (like me) I would definitely recommend it!

Stormzy
He's the people's champ, I love him so much. Is music is fab, he's a great performer and he stands up for what he believes in. What a guy.

Bad Education
I've recently started watching this again from the beginning and I'm SO GLAD I did, I had forgotten all the absolute jokes. Jack Whitehall is hilarious and I think I'm a little bit in love with him.

Olympus PEN EPL8 
I bought this on my first pay day of my new job and I have absolutely no regrets. It takes fab pictures/videos and it connects directly to my phone so I can post them straight to Instagram (defo a huuuuge plus for a social media addict like moi).


Feeling like a grown up (sort of)
I'm beginning to think that we never actually feel properly like adults. Regardless, the little times that I do make me so happy! For example, I've been waiting and waiting for the time when my taste buds mature enough for me to actually ENJOY the taste of wine (rather than leaving me secretly gagging but pretending to like it purely to seem grown up) and that time has finally come! Drinking wine makes me happy. It also makes me feel grown up when I come home from work and think, "you know what, I'm going to have a glass of wine while I watch mind-numbing reality TV". Sad, but true.

That's all of my favourites for this month! Please comment below letting me know what you've been loving.

City break on a budget!

City break on a budget!
Sunday, 2 July 2017

I honestly can't remember the last time I wasn't skint. I've spent my entire life being absolutely shite with money - I can't save a penny to save my life. So when I booked to go to Edinburgh I stupidly didn't save and ended up going with less money than I would've hoped. HOWEVER, my senseless spending and inability to control my debit card use gave me a fab idea for a blog post - city break on a budget, because (believe it or not) it IS possible to have a cheap city break! Here are my top 3 tips...

1) Book an Air BnB over a hotel.
Not only can you book an entire flat rather than having a tiny, postage stamp room but its more often than not CHEAPER. I definitely recommend reading the reviews and checking out the location on apartments/houses on air bnb because you could save LOADS on travel and accommodation.
We managed to nab ourselves the most gorgeous apartment in Stockbridge, just a short walk to the town centre, the castle, museums and the botanical gardens. We didn't have to get taxis anywhere other than to & from the airport.



2) Avoid eating out if possible
Obviously it's great to eat out when you're on holiday - that goes without saying, but if you're on a budget it's probably best to avoid it where possible. As we had an apartment, that meant we could use the kitchen provisions at our leisure so we cooked our breakfast and our dinner one night in the apartment, probably saving at least £30! We also treated ourselves to a takeaway one evening rather than going to a restaurant which also saved a few pennies. It definitely didn't feel like we were missing out because we ordered the yummiest sushi and ate it while we drank prosecco, did a facemask and watched love island!





3) Research free attractions
In cities there is always LOADS of free things to do. In Edinburgh there's the castle, museums, the botanical gardens. We spent most of our time just wandering around looking at the beautiful buildings  which I was more than happy to do as it's one of my favourite things. We also had a browse around the botanical gardens and, honestly, I've never felt so serene in my life!

MAY FAVOURITES

How boring is it when people say "can you believe it's... already" but honestly, can you actually believe that it's June?! We're halfway through 2017 already... lol WHAT?! 
Anyway, it's been a while since I've blogged because, honestly, working in social media full time makes me not wanna turn my computer on when I get home, let alone start writing. But for some reason, it's a Tuesday night, the weather is awful, I'm home alone and I'm motivated to write (plus these things that I'm about to mention are DEFINITELY worth sharing). 



Beauty:
Maybelline push up angel mascara
Anyone that knows me knows that mascara is pretty much my life. I have my few favourite mascaras and I NEVER stray from them. Maybelline Push Up Drama is my ultimate go-to so when I seen the new Push Up Angels one I thought that I would give it a go. Literally, best thing I've done in ages. I wear it every single day and all it takes is 1 layer - it saves so much time! The brush is already curved so it uplifts & curls lashes leaving them looking long and fluttery but also strangely natural.

Maybelline fit me foundation
I literally only bought this because the mascara was buy one get one half price (or something along those lines) but I'm so happy I did! I love this foundation so much and I've worn it A LOT since. If you wanna see a genuine first impressions review watch my new video (http://bit.ly/YTGRWM).



Fashion:
Slogan Tees
Nuff said really. I love them and will wear them with pretty much anything!


Dear Scantily bras
They're beautiful and they fit well, what more could you want from a bra?


Other things:
Peaky Blinders
I've tried to watch this twice before and couldn't get into it, but for whatever reason I thought that I would give it one more go and now I'm well and truly obsessed. I watched the 2 seasons that are on Netflix in a week and BOUGHT (I know!!) the third on Amazon because I just wasn't ready to stop watching. It's genuinely such a good watch and everyone in it is FIT lols.

Paramore / After Laughter
I know every single word to every song on this album because I have been listening to literally NOTHING ELSE.

New York Sex Lives podcast
Basically a Sex and The City article every week but in podcast form??? Yes please. If you're interested in such topics as "Harry Potter Erotica", "Botox for Buttholes" and "Virtual Reality Porn Is Killing Boners" then this is the podcast for you.
