Top Barcelona Eats.

Last week, my sister and I visited Barcelona for the very first time. During our stay, we absolutely fell in love with the city and everything that it had to offer. As a total foodie, I was amazed at its abundance of wacky and wonderful eateries, so much so that I feel they deserve their very own appreciation post.  We visited so many brunch spots, cafes and gelaterias throughout our trip, however there were a few stand out favourites . Brunch and Cake If I could recommend one place to eat  ...

Barcelona Lovin’

Last week I visited the beautiful city of Barcelona for the very first time. Upon booking our escape and hearing rave reviews, I knew that I was going like the city, however I had no idea just how head over heels for it I would fall. As the days past I  fell more and more in love with the city and found myself thinking “I would love to live here”. Jam packed with fascinating culture , small dogs and strong coffee, the city really won my heart and I have a feeling that I’ll be visiting  ...

Don’t Kill my Vibe.

    SO, if you had talked to me a few years ago about the power of positive thinking, I probably would have silently judged you and thought you were a bit deluded. I distinctly remember one of my favourite teachers from school hosting a screening of “The Secret” and claiming that it was an amazing / inspirational watch. Of course, my class mates and I went along – but only for the free popcorn and sweets. However, since this seed was planted way back in 2012, I’ve really  ...

Brows, Brows, Brows!

Over the past year or so, it seems that  everyone and their granny have been on a quest to achieve “on flique” brow status and along the way we have witnessed an abundance of hot new brow releases – from both ends of the beauty brands spectrum. However, with so many options available out there it can all seem a bit mind-boggling. From powders and gels to “pomades”, the options are endless. When it comes to my brows, I tend to go for something a little more natural for  ...

Results Day : Advice to my younger self.

My Story I have to admit, when I received my SQA results though the door in August 2012, it literally felt like the end of the world,  and seeing the majority of my peers post their university acceptance emails on social media only seemed to make things worse. Deep down I knew that I hadn’t revised as much as I could  but I was pretty sure that everyone had the same guilt. For me, the plan was always to go to uni, work my butt off,  then get a job – or at least thats what I had  ...

The Luminous Skin Dream Team

Over the past few  years I’ve really come to love trying out new skincare bits and finding products and formulas that work for me.  Being a pale skin gal, I often feel that my skin can look a bit dull and flat – like it’s just missing a little bit of glow – yinno? With this in mind I’m  always on the lookout for wonder products to put a spring in my step. Today I thought I would share a little luminous skincare mix which has worked wonders for my skin, leaving  ...
