Five things 2016 taught me and Ten Goals for 2017.


All photo's are my own except for the top left which is by the lovely @Sykereasy on Instagram.

This is going to be a rambling post so I suggest you get yourself a nice cuppa and a cosy little reading spot. I'm making an effort to blog more this year and also to write more on a personal level as opposed to ode's to my new lipstick. Which don't get me wrong, you'll still get some of those kind's of post's, I think my love of pretty thing's is just an integral part of my personality now but I want to take this blog in a different direction and share thing's that are important to me.

2016 was a strange year, I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way, In some ways everything is the same but in others' it feels like so much has happened and I fell that this time next year the world may have changed a lot more than we can imagine. On a personal level I'm in a completely different place than I was this time last year, I mean I'm literally living in a different country but also in the way I feel about certain things and about myself. I've also been thinking about what could have caused this change in my mindset and I realised that this past year has taught me a lot.

Payday Wishlist: Animal Print Obsession



1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Another payday, Another month of window shopping and It will not come as a surprise to anyone who know's me, especially the one's who have lived with me, That I'm obsessed with leopard print this month which honestly isn't really much of a change from the norm. I mean I wouldn't ever wallpaper my house with it or wear it head to toe, that's way too much for me but when it comes to accessories for me or my room, I would happily buy them all. So it suits me just fine that everyone else has cottoned on and there's so much of it around this season.

Taking a Leap of Faith back to the girl I used to be.



My ideas for this little blog may change on a day to day, hour to hour basis but the one thing that has remained constant is that I wanted to include more personal post's. Slightly like journal entries but not so personal I feel that I have nothing for myself and honestly, more than a little rambling so if your willing to read through them then bless you and I hope they help you as they have helped me.

I've written a few up so far and honestly the whole process has been more cathartic than I ever thought it could be so whether this post is read by many or none, I'm glad it's out there. So, I may or may not have been banging on about the fact I'm moving to Paris in a week's time but as my departure date becomes closer and closer I'm starting to look at so many aspects of my life and realise just how much has changed this year. Not just in my outer life but with who I am as a person and it could not be more welcome.

On my Travels : A Little Trip to Paris


Seeing as for the next few months of my life, I'll be living just outside Paris and spending Christmas living the Disneyland dream, I thought I'd share a few pictures from my trip to the city with Mama C last year. I'm excited to move but understandably a bit apprehensive but looking at these photo's and the one's from my multiple trips to Disney as a kid has been helping me to stay on the right side of excited (until I'm trying to fit all my stuff into a suitcase and then I'll be stressing again because I don't travel light at the best of times.)

Products Worth their Price - Soliel Tan De Chanel Bronzer Review



Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel | RRP £32.00

I normally love a good bargain and I don't necessarily agree with bloggers who tell everyone they need to buy extortionately priced products every other post but there are a few products that I will happily spend the extra money on and as I've been beauty and skin care obsessed for quite a while now there are quite a few of them. So I thought I'd start a little  series about the products that I can't live without and will continue to repurchase even if my bank account isn't as happy about it as I am. I'm kicking it off with a product I'm sure you'll all have heard of but maybe under it's original name: Chanel Bronze Universal, renamed a few years ago as the Soleil Tan De Chanel and as with the majority of Chanel products, In my humble opinion, It's worth every single penny and  I'll just tell you why:
