My First Football Game: Arsenal VS Besiktas

Last week my boyfriend came home grinning from ear to ear and clutching two tickets to see Arsenal Vs Besiktas. He'd managed to buy a couple from someone at work, and I'd never been to a football game before so I was very up for it! And so last night, without knowing what to expect, we headed to the Emirates anticipating the game...

London: Covent Garden & Kew Gardens!

Keeping to my Goals for Summer, yesterday I headed to London with my best bud Zakkia to explore a little more of the city. We began in Covent Garden (as always) and headed to Kew Gardens; somewhere I've never been before but will definitely be going to again! Some of the photos I got are gorgeous (it's the scenery doing the work, I promise!) so you're in for a treat today!

FOTD: An Attempt At A Beauty Post...

sorry for poor product photography!
There's a reason I'm not a beauty blogger; I just don't think I'm that good at it. I'm forever watching make-up videos on YouTube and I'm obsessed with skincare goodies, but when it comes to applying it myself, I'm just not overly convinced. However, as folks of the UK may know, we're experiencing the tail-end of Hurricane Bertha, and outfit photos were completely out of the question today. So, if you're up for taking a look into today's make-up and seeing the finished look, feel free to read on...

A Day In London - Southbank & Covent Garden!

Yesterday I jumped on a train and took a trip to London to see my friend, Lauren, whom I met during my first year at university. If you've ever been a student at University, particular one who lives away from home, you'll probably appreciate how quickly you make new best friends; friends that you know will last forever. I've known Lauren for just over three years now but it feels like I've known her all my life! It was such a gorgeous day and I managed to get lots of lovely photos!

Lazy Wednesday & Game of Thrones!

For those of you that follow me on twitter, you may have seen my desperation to head out for breakfast this morning. I woke up super early and reaaally wanted some pancakes but it was just my luck that none of my friends were awake! Instead I had lunch with my brother, and he proceeded to introduce me to Game Of Thrones. I'm impressed but I'm not completely won over by it yet! I just think nothing will ever beat Breaking Bad! Have any of you guys seen it?

What I Wore To Lunch & Plans For August!

This is an outfit I quickly threw together for a lunch date today. Even though it was a last minute decision, I really like the way it looks! It's taken me aaages to get used to wearing midi skirts - I thought I looked ridiculously frumpy before, but I'm kinda used to it now. I've also put together five aims and plans for the month of August towards the end of this post!
