My Favourite Places In Europe!

Today's post is one that I know a lot of you have been waiting for...My favourtite places in Europe! As the majority of you know by now, I went travelling for around 3 months and I visited 30 places! So, of course I had to write a blog post all about the best places. I would 100% recommend these places to anyone. If you're going travelling, booking a weekend away or even a holiday...have a look at this list! Obviously, not all of these places would be suitable for a weekend away, but you get the idea that I'm going for! 

I was going to start by writing about Skiathos in this post, as this was one of the best places! I did write a LOT of different things and it was super long for one section of this post. So...I've decided to dedicate a whole separate post for Skiathos because I have so many pictures, stories and recommendations for you guys! That will be coming on Friday so be sure to keep an eye out for that one.

Verona 

Verona is a place I have wanted to visit ever since I can remember and I feel so lucky that I have now ticked it off my bucket list. Verona is a city in Northern Italy best known for the location of Juliet's Balcony. Verona is a beautiful place with lots of amazing buildings and views. It's exactly how I pictured it and more! The streets are just so amazing to walk down and I feel like it's such a great place for pictures! We visited the castle which is stunning and has some really great views from there too. It was one of my favourite places for sure! We also visited Juliet's House of course to see the famous balcony and statue. It was very busy but so worth going. I feel like everyone needs to see it at some point in their life. We didn't go inside the Arena but I would love to go back some day and do it. The whole city just has a great feel to it and the look of everything is just incredible. It's one of the places where I didn't really mind getting lost as there was new things to see! Old style buildings, cute little streets and lots of hidden restaurants. It's 100% a place I am eager to visit again for sure!

'I like my money right where I can see it...hanging in my closet.'

As you may or may not know, I really want to start writing more fashion blog posts, so here it is! I must admit that this is a little nerve racking for me and also a little out of my comfort zone. But I'm giving it my best shot! Today I just wanted to speak to you guys about my opinions and thoughts on fashion at the minute and what are my next steps in terms of style. I would really love for you guys to get involved with this one and leave me your fashion blog posts below so I can give them a read! 



Style is personal to everyone 

Style is something that is different for every single person and I believe it's so unique to an individual. Everyone can follow a different trend, create their own trend, whatever they like! No two people are the same so we will all have different opinions and likes when it comes to fashion. You may like the same item as someone but have a completely different style, the complications are endless! I love how every single person can be creative with style and it allows us to experiment on an everyday basis. The word style means something different to everyone. Wether it's feeling confident, comfortable, chic...whatever the case, I think it's a pretty cool thing.

My Dream Living Room

For today's post I am talking about a brand that you have seen on the blog before and that you may have heard me mention before...because I love it! The brand is Arhaus and if you have never heard of them before...why not? They are a furniture company which focuses on natural materials and hand made furniture which I love! Their values are all about sustaining the earth and using the world as inspiration. This is the main reason why I love this brand so much and will always be happy to show you guys more about them! If you want to read and see more about the brand, be sure to check out my last post. I will also be leaving links of where to find them at the bottom of this post!  

Today I have created a mood board for you all about my dream living room. Interior is a big thing for me and I am obsessed with scrolling through Pinterest looking at how people design their homes. A living room is one that I can't wait to decorate when I move into my own home, you can do so much with it! I am going to be showing you some really great ideas, details and some beautiful pieces from Arhaus!

1. Colour Scheme 

Of course the colour's of your living room is one of the most important steps and it's one that I'm always thinking about. For me, I would love to have my living room mainly Grey and White but with a few colours dotted here and there. I think that this always looks so amazing and also looks great in any Instagram photo too! Having the majority around two colours is great because everything will match and go really well together. But...to make it a little more interesting you need to have a little colour in there somewhere. Things like, cushions, rugs, coasters, plant pots and picture frames are all amazing things to add that bit of colour to your living room! I have found some amazing inspiration pictures on Pinterest to show you!

I went travelling for around 3 months around Europe with my step sister Abi.

My travelling consisted of seeing lots of places, taking lots of pictures and experiencing so much. We got to walk around cities, sunbath on beautiful beaches and just have the most amazing time. We got to try food from various places, visit museums and see landmarks which we've only ever seen in pictures or movies. Hopefully some of the pictures in the post will do a lot better of showing you how much of an amazing time I had!

5 Things I've Learnt This Year...

Today's post is a little different but one I've wanted to do for a while. Today I am going to be telling you 5 things that I have learnt this year so far! Don't worry, this post won't be me talking about myself! I hope this post will give you guys some tips or advice and hopefully let some of you know that you're not the only one feeling a certain way or thinking certain things...




1. You Are Allowed To Put Yourself First

This is something that I have to constantly remind myself of all the time. People often think that actually spending time to yourself is a bad thing...it's not! If you need to cancel those plans, reschedule or not leave the house one day, then that's completely fine. It may be to do with mental health, problems in your life or just needing time to relax and refuel, then that's what you should be putting first. I sometimes need those days where I sit and do absolutely nothing. Watching films, turning off my phone, and eating whatever. There seems to be a lot going on in my mind and always lots of things that I'm constantly thinking about. If I didn't look after myself every so often, I would go insane! Don't feel bad about putting yourself first, it's what you should do!

New Product Reviews!

I have bought a few new products recently so I thought that it was time do let you know what I thought! There are four beauty products to talk about today and as always...I will tell you my 100% honest opinion. Three of these products I bought in Sephora in Paris and one of them arrived from Misfit Cosmetics while I was away. I have now tried all of them out...so here's my thoughts on if you guys should buy them or not!




Yes...I am so late with trying this product but I can now say that I finally own it, and I love it! I can see why everyone hypes about this product so much. I knew that because I was going to see so many Sephora's on this trip, I 100% had to pick this up. I have wanted to try a new brow product for a while now and this one seems to be a clear winner in the YouTube and Blogging world. I bought this in the shade Soft Brown and this is the perfect colour for me. I like my brows to be darker than my hair colour as lighter brows really don't suit me but it is all down to personal preference. This product is high quality, long lasting and looks amazing! I apply this product with an angled brush and it lasts me all day! I think the price of this product is very reasonable as I know it's going to last me a long time. If you are like me, and are late to the band wagon on this product...it is worth the hype!

Interrail Global Pass...Is It Worth It?

As the majority of you will already know...I have been travelling for three months around Europe. I traveled the majority by train and I bought the Interrail Global Pass before I went. I found it really difficult to find any reviews of these passes and I know how helpful it would of been, so today I'm going to tell you what I thought about these passes! They are very expensive so it's good to get someone else's views first. I bought three of these in total, two global monthly passes and one global 7 day pass. Were they worth it? What problems did you have with it? What happens if you loose it? Read on to find out...

So, if you don't know what the Interrail Pass is, I'll start with that! My Interrail is an online company who sells different passes for travellers. They are managed by Eurail Group, on behalf of the participating European Railway companies. I found this website through searching online and it was one of the top searches so we thought that we would give it a go.


How Much Was It?
