The FOMO is Real

    This is something which has been on my  mind recently and quite frankly has been getting me a little down . This month marks two years since the best summer of my life. During the summer of 2012 I headed to the U.S to spend 12 weeks working at an American summer camp. Though it sounds cliche, the experience definitely impacted my life – in the best ways. On June 4th 2014 I boarded the plane to New York on my first solo trip, to be introduced to 50 new people who I would  ...

Graduation: One Year On.

Roughly this time last year I was graduating from my undergraduate degree, and honestly I was having a bit of a panic! Commencing the hunt for a “grown up” job seemed incredibly daunting and the thought of beginning a new degree seemed equally as terrifying. Today I thought I would share what I’ve been up to since then and a few things I’ve learned along the way.    Change is okay… actually its great! This time last year I  had just graduated from my degree in music business and  ...

The Magic of Unplanned Travel

When it comes to travel planning  I’m usually the first to get my Insta- stalking  game on in hope of finding the coolest “must see”,  alternative places to hang out. However, whilst on my last few trips I decided to mix things up a bit and just wing it. As a planning geek this initially seemed quite daunting, however deciding to just “go with the flow” has opened my eyes to a new kind of travel. I was reminded of the joys of unplanned travel a few weeks ago  ...

In-Flight Essentials for Nervous Flyers.

Although I have just about managed to overcome my flying fears, there is still a part of me that shrieks a little bit every time I think about getting on that plane. Personally I don’t think it’s something I’ll ever be 100% over but I’ve definitely come pretty far over the past few years.  Recently, I’ve read quite a few blog posts on “travel essentials” and “in flight must haves” however, I do feel that these differ slightly for someone  ...

Low Cost Lippies – The Nude Edit

When it comes to beauty, lipsticks are most definitely my Vice – nude ones especially. Whilst rooting through my (overloaded) beauty drawer I noticed that the majority of my favourite nude shades are actually from the drugstore and honestly,  with more and more high street brands releasing fab finishes and formulas I really feel that there is little / no need to splurge on higher end lip products – unless they are truly special or unique. Today I thought I would share a few of  ...

Blush Pinks and Quirky Prints

Over the past few weeks I have been picking up a few summer bits and bobs from the highstreet and thought it would be cool to share my favourite picks.  As I’m not jetting of on holiday until the end of August I’ve been trying my best to be sensible and  pick up pieces which will work in both rain and shine – even though this season’s beachwear has been extremely tempting!   First Up – The Bomber Jacket I’m not usually one to wear light, pastel  ...

Being a V.I.T at T in the Park

So last week was pretty crazy! As a huge music buff and avid festival goer I found myself experiencing the festival blues knowing that this year I wouldn’t be at one of my favourite festivals – T in the park. I was especially gutted as this years lineup looked incredible and featured my bucket list band – The Stone Roses. However, as the days passed I spied a few competitions flying around on Twitter for T in the Park tickets and thought “why the hell not?! Little  ...

Tips for Travel Planning : The USA Edit

  1. Plan Plan Plan! – The more research you do when planning a trip the more sights you can see and money you can save! 2. Booking.com –  When booking hotels and hostels, use Booking.com. This site allows you to reserve your room and pay on the day of arrival, this especially handy when making a group booking as everyone can simply pay their share when you arrive. 3. Hostels are your friend! –  Hostels are great for meeting other travellers and can be a really inexpensive alternative  ...

On Turning 23 and Making Time

  So last week marked my 23rd Birthday (gawd I’m old) and over the past year I have achieved so much – I passed my driving test, started studying a degree which I love and managed to travel quite a bit with the best guys around. Yes, I am so proud of what I have achieved and wouldn’t take it back for the world, however there’s one thing which has really gotten to me recently. Over the last few years of being at uni and working part time I have found myself repeating the phrase “I’m too  ...
