Consumed by Wanderlust and Craving Luxury

It’s no secret that I love to travel. I didn’t have my first holiday until the age of 18 and I’ve been making up for lost time ever since by taking advantage of any cheap package deals I can. Hotels I’ve stayed in have always been nice, clean and simple. Somewhere to sleep and shower after a long day of exploring the nearby food, shops and culture. This year, however, I was lucky enough to win a plush holiday to Mexico, and so I experienced my first ever 5* luxury hotel complete with swim-up rooms, elaborate decor and 24 hour…

I made a video!

Pretty much every night that I get into bed I’ll sit up on my phone for half an hour or so (okay, it actually probably ends up being like two hours or something, whoops!) watching random YouTube videos from bloggers and travellers and whoever else. And I always find myself thinking “I want to do that”. So today, I uploaded my first YouTube video – yey! 🎥 Quite honestly, I am clueless. I don’t really know how my video editor works, I don’t really know how YouTube’s upload process works. I clicked here and there and somehow got through it.…

Munching on the New Nando’s Summer 2016 Menu

  Back in May when exams were ruling my life (oh, I know, I’ve wittered on about them enough!), I was lucky enough to be invited along to Nando’s to sample their new summer menu. Being a gal that loves a cheeky Nando’s – so much so that it made an appearence in a list of 50 things that make me happy – I couldn’t wait to get stuck in, and now I finally have time to tell you all about the glorious grub, and no doubt make myself drool along the way. I was joined by my fellow Hull…

Getting Party Ready with Cracker Drinks Co.

Let’s go back in time to about three months ago. Exams were approaching, assignments were due, and my dissertation deadline was looming, meaning free time was at an absolute zero. During this time, however, Cracker Drinks Co. sent over the cutest package for me which I saved for one of my rare nights off, and now, with freedom upon me, I can finally tell you all about it. I got warm fuzzy feelings in my tummy as soon as I unwrapped the package. It came in a super cute multicoloured spotted box which I forgot to take a photo of…

Ashton, where are you?

You may or may not have noticed that recently, I’ve not been out and about in the online world very much. (Shoutout to the cuties that noticed and have messaged me! If you haven’t noticed, how very rude of you… jk. 😉) My Twitter feed has been neglected, my Instagram filters have been gathering dust and cobwebs, and my blog hasn’t has much of an update in a while. Which seems very odd considering I’ve just had a few days off from work one after the other. I did plan to spend that time blogging, but it turns out, I…

True North De-Stressed Serum 4.1 Review

When it comes to skincare, I have to confess: I’m not very dedicated. I’m a bit of a bog standard cleanse and moisturise kind of girl. I tone occasionally and will do the odd exfoliating mask, but anything else is usually new territory to me. Okay, sometimes I don’t even cleanse and moisturise. I go for the baby wipe. There. I said it. 😳 Recently, however, I’ve been trying a couple of new products, and I’m totally digging them. (And I’m trying to up my skincare game, I swear!) You may have seen recently that I reviewed a SKN-RG product…
