Amsterdam Diary & Recommendations

I took 161 photographs on my Nikon D3300 over the course of our five day trip. Snap happy? Perhaps, but I have no regrets; this was one of the happiest trips of my lifetime, and I’m so glad I got to document it well. Whittling it down to these 47 (an odd number, I know) for you to look at it was difficult, but I think I’ve picked wisely! I wasn’t able to photograph everything we did, so I thought I’d do a quick run through of my trip at the end of my photo diary; hopefully this gives you some inspiration for your own Dutch getaway! Stick around to hear more about my mini vacay...

Birthday Beauty Wishlist

Okay guys - standard disclaimer here (since I've never really done a post of this nature): this is just a little bit of fun. Of course I do not expect anybody to shower me in expensive, high-end gifts; I just thought it would be fun to share with you some of the beauty items which are currently heading my lust-list. So here you go!

How to Save on Your Weekly Shop*

Ah, the weekly food shop... for those amongst us who are less-than organised, this can often involve walking mindlessly, aisle to aisle, wondering what we actually came in for, and arriving home feeling perplexed as we stare at our boot full of broccoli and pop tarts. Have you ever got home after grocery shopping, found an item in your shopping bag and wondered 'why on earth did I pick this up?'

8 Ways to Avoid 'Oops!' Moments This Summer*

Don't you just hate those people who live seemingly picture-perfect lives? You know the ones I mean: the ones with Pinterest worthy vanity areas, an impressive collection of designer shoes and bags, the white Range Rover and the passport with more stamps and stickers than a well-renewed library book. They seem to never have a hair out of place. But, here's the thing: nobody is perfect. These people simply have the luxury of living their lives through a lens. What you see is the end result of a lengthy process of editing and airbrushing. In reality, these people probably have their fair share of 'oops!' moments (and by that, we all know I mean 'oh shit!' moments), just like you and I. You know what I'm talking about... those moments in life when you've spent hours washing, blow-drying and straightening your hair and then you step outside and it instantly gets stuck in your lipgloss or ruined by the merciless downpours. The ones where you've spent hours on your makeup and then the sun sends it sliding down your face. The ones where you've been out and about all day, completely oblivious to the fact that your skirt has been tucked into your knickers. Yep... we've all been there. C'est la vie! These moments are, unfortunately, unavoidable. However, here are a few tips for keeping mishaps at bay this summer...

Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Review*

Calling all lazy girls! Well, I hope I'm not the only one whose hair is 90% dry shampoo by the time the weekend rolls round? Don't judge! Now, I've been relying on my trusty Batiste since I was about 15 years old, so I was a little dubious when the lovely Zoe, from Bath and Unwind, contacted me about trying a new dry shampoo. Zoe popped the Moroccanoil dry shampoo in the post for me, and I've been testing this out over the last few weeks. If you've been keeping up with my Instagram (click here to join the action), then you'll know that this little saviour was a god send for me during the mini heatwave we've recently encountered, here in South East England. Well, today I'm bringing you a more in depth review. Kick back, grab a cuppa and listen to me rambling on about dry shampoo... beats working, right?
