A couple of weeks ago, I finally decided to pick one of these palettes up. It's not often that I get to look at NYX make-up since I live in a tiny little town with no NYX counter within about 40 miles, so I'll always do a nice haul whenever I come across one! As… Continue reading NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette (Smokey) – A Review
As mention previously in my first Lake District post (which is all about Skiddaw if you're interested), this August, we decided to complete the three-hour journey up to the Lake District, to a small market town nestled in the northwest of the Lakes called Keswick. When planning our trip, the whole idea was that we were… Continue reading A day in the Lake District: Red Pike
Over the past year, IPL devices have essentially blown up. A while back, I was clueless to what IPL devices even were and now I see them drowning my social media feed, local shops and TV adverts. If you haven't yet come across IPL devices, here is a quick explanation by SmoothSkin themselves: Now, back… Continue reading SmoothSkin Bare: Are IPL devices just a fad?
I've been using this product since the week it came out, and have been on-off using it over the summer alongside the nice golden tan I managed to get after a week in Lanzarote.

Like last year, we decided to complete the three-hour journey up to the Lake District, to a small… Continue reading A day in the Lake District: Skiddaw
How do you make room for travel in a busy working-life schedule?There's annual leave I guess. In the UK we're considered lucky to get 28 days off per year, across many countries this is far less, but I can't be the only one left thinking that it just isn't enough to satisfy by inner travel… Continue reading Five quick tips for travelling with a 9-5 job

My poor Fitbit Charge HR had fallen victim to the standard problems of deep screen scratches, cracks running down the plastic and the band bubbling, basically in simple terms, it looked awful. Of course I was a… Continue reading One week with my Fitbit Blaze
I guess this is more of a beauty (hair?) blog post, but it does fit into my travel theme ever so slightly - promise! For the past decade, I have truly suffered with my hair. It's thick, it's dry and it frizzes the second the temperature gets above fifteen degrees. Blow-drying my hair is a… Continue reading Coconut Oil: My travel godsend
This is a bit of a long post, but a twitter user inspired me to write it, and as I wrote I had so many ideas that I couldn't leave out! They reached out asking how I would tackle increasing, and maintaining fitness levels with a syndrome called chronic fibromyalgia. Completely unheard of to me,… Continue reading Has illness killed your exercise motivation?
