Lets talk about Goals, baby.

As with a lot of things in life from fitness levels to career advancement, I believe that goal setting is extremely important. I really feel that it is crucial to have a plan – or at least a rough outline of what you would like to achieve and exactly how you will go about this. I am a bit of a Monica Geller, can you tell? Personally, I find that setting goals really motivates me to work that little bit harder and challenge myself. I also find that setting targets and goals can be a  ...

My Glastonbury Experience 2017 – Review and Photo Diary

Glastonbury Photo Diary 2017 So, last weekend I made my way to Worthy Farm to tick off my top bucket list festival – Glastonbury. As you may have read in my most recent post, I am a huge music lover and have dreamed of attending this legendary event for years. From a young age I have watched the highlights on T.V, read all the music press headlines and felt the fomo (big time) as festival goers shared their snaps online. However, on the 22nd of June 2017, my awesome friend Lottie and  ...

72 Hours in Copenhagen

As you may have spotted from my latest Instagram posts, a fortnight ago myself and my friend Karen headed to the Copenhagen – the land of cinnamon buns and dreamy interiors for a sneaky birthday getaway. Having previously researched the city, I had an inkling that it would be right up my street and what can I say? It more than lived up to my high expectations. From the city’s beautiful scenery and epic food markets to the laid back, super chilled vibe of its residents, it was  ...

The Ultimate Camp Counsellor Packing List

Instagram Food Tour of Glasgow

As mentioned in my recent update, my lovely friend Lottie came to  visit during the month of January. Whilst there is nothing I love more than showing visitors around my hometown and favourite city, sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming – there is just so much to see! As huge foodies,  I couldn’t wait to take her on a mini food tour of the city’s amazing cafes and eateries. Whilst thinking of my favourite spots, I found myself scrolling through my Instagram feed with  ...

Winter Lips with ColourPop Cosmetics

Now that Colour Pop are officially shipping to the UK (yayy) I thought that it was about time to place a little order and see what all the hype is about. Although international shipping is relatively new to the site, I did place a small order via a US postage company around this time last year which consisted of a few Lippie Stix, a cream highlighter and a few single eyeshadows. I was mega impressed by the overall quality of the products and so since the release of their popular liquid  ...

Roadtrips, Uni and Sweet Sounds – Monthly Roundup

Yep, we are now half way through October and like most people I have no idea where 2016 has gone! The month of September was absolutely crazy for me – this seems to be a reoccurring theme within my monthly roundups but I am more than okay with that. Before I get into my roundup I just have to say that I am absolutely over the moon that Autumn is now upon us (woohoo). From A/W fashion and beauty to cold crispy nights and cinnamon scents, Autumn 2016 has really got me good. I cannot  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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  ...

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  ...
