birthday trip to austria

Hey Everyone, 

So if you couldn't work out from the title of this post I actually spent my birthday in the mountains of Austria. My boyfriend took me out there for a few days, it was my first time visiting, but he goes a lot with his family. I was so amazed by the beauty of this place, it was just incredible. 

We flew into Munich and then got the train to Austria close to where we were staying in Wörgl, and then got a lift up into the mountains of Niederau where we were staying in a cute and very Austrian looking chalet.

I was gutted that I came down with a cold for the entire trip, but that was not going to stop me having the most amazing time, and I even made it up a giant mountain. We spent a lot of time hiking, as there wasn't enough snow to ski (but there was snow, yay). The view from the top of the mountain was absolutely incredible, it was so worth struggling to breathe for. 

I vlogged the whole trip, so you can see what I got up to in more depth, and hear my manly ill voice (it's not attractive, I warned you), but to sum up, I had the most amazing time, I watched the sun rise and climbed snowy mountains, and relaxed in the sauna after the days we spent hiking. It was honestly the most perfect get away for my birthday, there was so much time to chill out and be in a beautiful calm and quiet environment, which is just what I needed, from the stresses of working life and the hustle and bustle of London.

Winter skincare routine

Hey everyone, 

Today I wanted to talk to you about my current skincare routine. Now that the winter is here and lets face it, its bloody cold. So what better time than to discuss how I try and keep my skin looking fairly decent and hydrated through those dreaded winter months (I actually enjoy winter, but my skin definitely doesn't). 

I try to use oil based products, such as the oil infused micellar water from Garnier, as it gives alot more hydration to my skin and stops it feeling so dry. Just bare in mind that if you have oily skin, you shouldn't be put of by oil based products, I too have oily skin, mainly on my t-zone but I swear by this product. 
I also talk about my love of Origins and their drink up intensive mask, oh my gosh it's so good, I can't tell you how amazing my skin feels after using this, when I wake up in the morning. 

I recently spoke about all of the products I am currently using, and what I think about them, in my latest youtube video. 

I hope you enjoy!

organising your life

Do you ever feel unorganised? 

I definitely get times where I feel as though my life is all over the place. However, come December time I get so excited to re purchase a new diary for the upcoming year, that my organisation goes into full swing. 
I have been searching for the perfect diary for a while now, and I kept seeing advertisements for Kikki.K on Instagram and thought their products looked so aesthetically pleasing... and then they opened a store near where I live. Well I could live in that store, its a stationary girl's dream. I routed through the different 2017 diaries and finally decided on this one. It's in my current favourite dusty pink colour and it's got the perfect week view layout, but even better it comes with stickers! 
At the back of the diary, it has pages where you can jot down your favourite movies, restaurants/bars, books, tv programmes. I think that is such a cool idea, because I always make a mental note of the places I want to try out, or the books I want to read, but they very easily get lost among the rest of my thoughts. 

Are you like me and love the excitement of purchasing a new diary, ready for the new year? I feel like i'm talking about the cliché 'New Year, New Me'.

Hey Everyone,

I recently shot a lookbook over on my youtube channel, and I thought I would share with you the outfits. I had so much fun shooting this, although let me tell you, behind the scenes is not so glamorous, its bloody freezing in November, but I'm so pleased with how it turned out. 
I'm completely obsessed with this dust pink colour I have in my top and bobble hat, that I teamed with my current favourite dungarees. 

My third outfit was the zara faux suede coat with the most beautiful bell sleeve jumper, which is just so cool I absolutely love it. And the final outfit, was a super casual cream oversized jumper with of course black jeans and my trusty vans. 

 all of the clothes shown are all linked in my youtube description box, let me know what your favourite outfit is.
