Review: Tom Ford Indian Rose Lipstick

I've always been one that maybe, surprisingly, has dreamt of the day I owned some Tom Ford makeup. I know it's not 'that' expensive but I've just never been able to justify spending that much myself. 

But a few months ago, my first Tom Ford lipstick landed in my hands. The shade - Indian Rose. And the excitement was real, let's put it that way.

Europe 2017 Diaries. It All Began in France.

A few weeks ago I made the very quick decision to plan a holiday. I knew I had some time before I started my new job (which I have done now) and just instantaneously thought to myself, I want to go on holiday/away. 

Looking at different options, I knew I wanted to do and see as much as I could. And so turned to a company called STA, who specialise in booked tours. Within a couple of hours of walking into their office, I'd decided to book a 14 day adventure around Europe - EU Highlights. 

And I definitely made a great decision to do it! I could ramble on for ages about where we went and what we did and the people I met. But I'm going to try and keep it short and split up these posts by country so you have different posts to look forward to. (or jealous of..sorry) 

So, we started out in London. Not a massively fascinating place for me, but as I later found out, for the mix nationalities on the tour with me, London was one to see.

Tattoos: Acceptable or Taboo?

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I got my very first tattoo last month! A decision that took an awful lot of thinking to come to. I spoke to a few close people and found a few mixed opinions on whether they'd get a tattoo themselves, which did actually make me think for a bit.

Interview Tips

For this post I thought I'd go back to a little post I wrote a few weeks about taking the next step after university/college and looking for a job. So what's the next step once you've applied for the job?

The interview right? And so here are a few tips and pointers to help you out. 

FYI, I'm not claiming to be an interview genius but from having been on an accountable number of interviews, since I became of legal age to work, I thought I'd just share some to help anyone in that position...

Review: Newtons Labs Charcoal Nose Pore Strips

I'll be honest, I've always been intrigued by pore strips and heard mixed reviews on whether you should really use them. But curiosity got the better of me and I went out and bought some. Newtons Labs T-Zone Skincare Charcoal Nose Pore Strips to be exact.

Packing Tips for travelling solo

As you read this, I'll be on a 2 week trip around Europe, solo. Well almost solo, I'm travelling with a small group of others visiting places like Paris, Venice and Amsterdam - more on that when I get back - but I won't actually know anyone until I meet them. 

I'm obviously writing this post a few weeks in advance and as I countdown to the day I leave, I thought I'd share some tips with you about packing for a solo adventure, that I'm slowly learning or have been given.
