Just a little bit of chit chat ~

6.30.2014

Apologies for the late night post - for those of you who aren't nocturnal ;)
I'm currently sitting back on my bed, in the middle of my evening skin routine (current stage - eye masks!) with Toy Story 3 playing on Netflix. The only thing that isn't here right now is a lovely mug of coffee, but i'm trying to improve my sleeping pattern. Which sadly means less or even no caffeine after 10pm! *sobs*.  

In this series of 'late night ramblings' I thought it would be nice to reflect on how June has been for me. I feel like I've done quite a lot within the last month. It's worth talking about!

For those of you who might not have known, I went to Paris at the beginning of June with my boyfriend. Want to know what I got up to? Check out these posts! Part OnePart TwoPart ThreePart Four and Part Five. I adored Paris, its a stunning place to go to in the world. I went to the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, Notre Dame, Bastille markets and Disneyland Paris! I have a love for photography (without wanting to be too much of a tourist) I was taking pictures of the sights on my Sony digital G Lens camera. I've put up all my photos from my journey to Paris on my Flickr Account. Please do have a look! If you have a Flickr account, do follow me - i'll follow back! I'd love to see what you all enjoy capturing! It was such a wonderful holiday. I suppose it's now fulfilled my desire to visit other countries a lot more. Explore the different cultures and lifestyles too. Hey i'm 21 this year, this could happen!

A little later into June, I finally settled into my new job in the shop i'll be working in. I've gone from working in retail with mobile phones, to now working in the retail fashion industry for Monsoon/Accessorize as an assistant manager. I love my new job! I feel like this is a new challenge that I just can't wait to tackle! I feel so much happier too. It's a new environment with a different customer base. I'm a people person - so working in a shop is great for me! I find the little things also add up, which can sometimes take an effect on your attitude to your work life. I really don't mind commuting, I drive and have easy access to train travel and buses if need be. The journey everyday in my last job seemed to have taken its toll on my after a while. (which i'd shrug off as soon as I reached my destination). I used to drive everyday (and still do! Just in a different direction), other cars on the road, pedestrians and getting stuck in traffic unexpectedly would create this ball of stress that would just sit on my chest and hang around for at least the beginning of the day. Hey ho! I've no longer need to worry about any of that. I'm feeling a whole lot better and back to my happy normal self!

I had a little think earlier on my lunch break today at work. I'm really happy with how my life has panned out so for when it comes to achievements and work. I don't think i'd change a thing! I left school after achieving my a levels, and got into full time employment as soon as I could. University was always something that I wanted to do when I was younger. Approaching closer to the time, the sparkling image of studying at a university seemed to have fizzled out. I began weighing up my options and realised that as great as university is for some people with certain career aspirations. Though, for someone like myself, I wanted to get myself that working experience and climb the ladder my own way. 

Before getting involved with full time employment. I did debate on studying photography, but pondering on the idea of what i'd actually do after university left me a little unsure if pursuing it through something like university for something for me. I have my own Flickr account which I've had since I studied photography for my A levels. I think i'll just keep it as a hobby for my own interests. There's nothing to say I don't study it further, just without the assistance of going to university. 

I've just realised after finishing this post, I really have rambled on quite a bit aha! Apologies for it being a long text post! I'm glad I can share what i'm thinking about on here.

So basically... 
I'm happy with what I've achieved. I'm also rather open to what the future has in store for me. I really do think the path I've chosen is the one for me!


Festival Fever ~

6.28.2014

4. Body Paint Tubes £4.50
5. PU Zip Bumbag £24

I do love a good festival! It's the buzz and atmosphere of the live music playing in every corner you can walk to! I enjoy a laid back timetable at a festival, i'll see who I want, but i'm also happy to just chill out with an over priced burger and paper cup of apple cider! Alas, this year i'm not going to any festivals (I've been to a few each year for the last few years!), I think this year its time for a break. I've gone on holiday and hopefully will be inspired to make use of my passport again later in the year.

For those of you who are going to festivals this year, or you just fancy the festival fever - this post is for you! 

I love festival fashion this time of year, it makes me feel all fun and summery. The wacky wellington boots (these are a must!), floral crowns and body paint add to the fun! I've picked out a few items that if I was going to a festival this year, i'd be eyeing up.

Prepare for wet weather, but also the sun! I find kimono's are a perfect item of clothing to take along to outdoor events. They protect you from the sun, yet being light weight and fashionable.

If you're stuck with what you want to pack for a festival (especially if its your first one), i'd recommend packing things that you wont mind possibly getting ruined in the mud or even body paints! You should prepare for all kinds of weather. So take wellies, also considering lighter shoes to wear like leather boots or even converses for when it's dry! 

Have fun with it - that's the best thing. If you have the chance to wear that awesome flower crown that you think you'd not usually be able to pull off on a casual day, then do it! 

Hope you enjoyed this little post - are you going to a festival this year? I'd love to hear from you.
Be sure to keep an eye out on an upcoming post about festival essentials too!


Makeup Revolution Haul ~ Palettes

6.26.2014


Within the time of changing jobs and settling into my new store. I had purchased some of the new makeup palettes from Makeup Revolution. I purchased both of the new Blush and Contour palettes in Sugar and Spice and Hot Spice - hey why not?! They're only £6 each ;D After feeling positive about my ELF Cosmetics concealer palette, I decided to also pick up the Makeup Revolution Cover and Conceal palette in Light - Medium for once again that bargainous £6! Unfortunatly this post does not consist of swatches. But keep your eyes peeled, i'll be writing a review on these bad boys sometime in the near future!

May I also add in (just before I start rambling on) the packaging on these are just wonderful! Such a premium feel for such a little price! I'm also loving the fact they are sleek and slim and have a large mirror on the inside, they're perfect for travelling with!



Pleasingly, Makeup Revolution have quite a variety of palette shades for the Cover and Conceal collection. I'm rather pale, but since catching a little bit of sun on my skin, I purchased the palette in a light - medium shade. The palette consists of 8 different creamy colours, even though a couple are too dark for me - they'll be perfect for contouring - especially those cheek bones! 



Left to Right: Sugar and Spice, Hot Spice
Then we have the blush palettes, I was incredibly excited about these! I purchased both of these with the intentions of comparing the two. I love the colour variety that you get with these palettes, they are such wearable colours! I'm ever so pleasantly surprised with the fact that 6 of the 8 pans are matte colours and 2 are shimmery (i'd class one of the shimmery ones to be pretty much a highlighter over a blush!). As pretty as I find shimmery blushes are, I'm not the biggest fan of having a face covered in glitter! 

Sugar and Spice is a typically pink shaded palette, with a little bit of coral and nude included! Whereas Hot Spice is more of an orange/coral toned palette - both being very wearable though! 

I can't wait to swatch these babies and give them a run for there money. Like I said earlier in the post, keep your eyes peeled very soon for a review on these palettes! I'd like to give myself a little time in getting a true opinion rather than just wearing the product once and telling you what I thought the first time. 

Shh! It's a secret!

6.24.2014


I'm a girl with happy feet at the moment. If the image above doesn't seem to give an obvious enough hint to you all. I've recently splashed out some cash on a new pair of Dr Marten boots! I've always wanted a pair of these but never found the chance to part with a chunk of money for the boots. 

For a little while now, I have had an email subscription to a website called Secret Sales. For those of you who aren't familiar with the website. It's a 'members only' type of thing. You can only see what they have for sale if you create an account (which is free!) and log in. 

"Secretsales brings you luxury products you'll love forever, at prices you can afford."

The website hosts a variety of sales that may only last for a matter of days. Once the items are gone, they're gone! 



I've only ever used the website this one time, to purchase these dm's for the bargainous price of £59.99 (RRP £99.99) They had a variety of options available but colours were subject to sizes. I was after a black pair anyway - woo! 

One thing I liked the most about the delivery of this product is that they kept you in the know of the status of your order. From clicking the purchase button to having the product delivered happened in a reasonably quick time - I was pleased! 

If you haven't seen or signed up to Secret Sales - you're crazy not to! 

This post was not in anyway sponsored by Secret Sales. Everything written here are my own views and opinions. 

Put the kettle on & make yourself a cuppa..

6.23.2014


How are we all?
Apologies for being off the Blogger radar these last few days! I've settled in to my new job now I've finished my induction and been to Paris. Now i'm back! :D

I've got plenty up my sleeve for upcoming posts, so keep an eye out! Thank you for your support - I know my follower count isn't the highest, but I appreciate you all for being here! 

Now for less of the soppiness! I've finally got around to uploading all my Paris holiday trip photos on my Flickr account (please do click the link!) It was such a beautiful holiday - the first time I had left the country in years! 

Time for me to get organised! I love writing this blog, I really want to incorporate it into my life. I enjoy sharing my findings and interacting with everyone on here!

Just for now i'm altering my posting schedule. I enjoy consistency in blog posts. So rather than writing one post everyday, for the mean time I'll aim for every other day as a minimum with posts in between once in a while! :)

I'd love to hear any suggestions to what you'd like to see on here! 
Once again, thanks for sticking around! x

E.L.F Cosmetics haul!

6.17.2014


Whilst wondering about the Twitter world (Click this link if you don't follow me already!) I came across ELF Cosmetics. I had heard of the cosmetic brand before, but I haven't really heard much about them or in them in stores on the high street. I love finding new brands and cosmetics, so I was more than happy to jump at the option of exploring their website and also follow them on Twitter. So what did I buy, I hear you ask? Well don't analyse the image above and read on. 



In the image above, the product looks much darker in the second image than what it actually is. The shade I chose for this concealer was 'light'. What I like about this is the variation of concealer colours. I've never tried a concealer product like this before, so I got a little bit excited when including this in my makeup routine for the first time. I wont go into much detail about what I think of this product into too much detail, I want to try the product more than once before I give any kind of review! (i'll also include swatches too!). The consistency of these concealers is very creamy so it glides on the skin very nicely! I was initially worried about how creamy the product was, in case it creased quite badly during the day - who wants that?! So far so good, no creasing. I'm happy to say that the colour is also buildable if you want a thicker coverage!




I was under the impression that this powdered product was going to be a lighter shade than what it actually is. I'm not at all disappointed though, I've caught the sun on my face whilst the UK has had some gorgeous weather. I wouldn't recommend this colour on those that are very very pale skinned! I used this product in the corners of my eyes and a little on my eyelids before putting on my usual winged liner look. It's also useful to use to set the creamy concealer to keep it in place. 




I'm very happy that I picked this to put in my shopping basket! I chose the flavour Mellow Melon, yep it smells like melons! It's a lovely glossy balm that gives a great colour pay off. I found whilst wearing it the first time (like other lip balms) you would need to reapply to keep the colour pay off at bay!




As soon as I saw this product, I knew I just had to have it! (hehe). I love the idea of having a multi purpose product - eyes, cheeks, lips! My main intention with this product was to use it as a creamy blush. Like a lipstick, if you wanted more product, you twist the neck and more product appears. I drew a line of this from the balls of my cheeks and then an inch or so back from that. I chose the colour Golden Peach, wanting more of that yummy summer coral glow! The formula is just lovely, so blendable and buildable! I would say though, go in light handed first and the build! But if you do go in a little heavier than expected, use hour powder brush over the product and it blends and softens perfectly!



Having always wanted a makeup setting spray, this caught my attention. I haven't got the skin type which needs a setting spray because my makeup doesnt tend to slip and slide dramatically. For a product for under £4 - I didn't look away! The smell of this product is rather fresh and yummy, nothing of a sickly scent at all. The product sprays evenly and well all over the face! I'll write a review or something at a later stage letting you all know how I get on with this product!



Makeup brushes - Studio Stipple Brush £3.95, Blending Eye Brush £1.95

I just had to pick a few makeup brushes to test out didn't I? ;) These two brushes are just so soft! The stipple brush has longer bristles than the Real Techniques equivalent. I don't think id use it for foundation, but I used it to blend in the concealers of the concealer palette and it was just perfect! The blending eye brush is perfectly soft. I can't wait to get my hands on my eye shadows and give this baby a run for its money!

Disclaimer: I purchased all these products for myself with my own money. This purchase was in no way influenced by ELF directly. This is not a sponsored post.  

Have you used ELF Cosmetics before? What are your thoughts?

I think i've found the one..

6.16.2014



Overlooking the dramatic title to today's post, you might tell I've fallen rather fond of the Soap and Glory Pulp Friction body scrub. I had only discovered this product when I was given the Bad Day Box gift set from my old work colleagues, it featured a miniature Pulp Friction. The smell of this product is just lovely! Anything that is overly sweet and sickly I usually get put off by, but this has the perfect smelliness of sweet and fruity! 

My first impression of the product before I used it was the usual impression that Soap and Glory get over its packaging. 'Ah so pink and lovely!' - or something along the lines of that - yep, i'm a sucker for the Soap and Glory packaging! I've found that with some scrubs in the past, they're incredibly coarse and end up stinging my skin or leaving it quite sore and red. (I mainly exfoliate the tops of my arms, elbows and all of my legs) With all the goodness that the packaging says this product has "fig powder, pumice, peppermint oil, lemonade tree liquid, orange waterjuice™ and vitaminballs™ (A,C,E). Scented with our new Fruitigo™ fragrance." I just couldn't wait to try!

The consistency of this product feels so luxurious. Creamy with the perfect amount of vitaminballs to scrub away the dead skin! The product really lathers up when you exfoliate, feels like a real pamper treat! I've noticed a positive difference in the texture of my arms and legs since using this product. I use it at least every other shower that I have, if not every time! 



To finish off this nourishment I like to use the Oh Butter Yourself body butter from Soap and Glory for perfectly silky soft arms and legs! Click this link to see what I thought of it in a previous post of mine!

For anyone who has sensitive dry skin - this is for you! You can easily find this product in places like Boots (I wouldn't be surprised if there was a 3 for 2 offer or something) for £8.00

Would you rather? ~ Beauty Edition

6.15.2014

So I was floating about the wonderful world of Twitter and I found this tag! Lets give it a try - I'll be tagging some fellow bloggers too at the end! So here are the questions:

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
4.) If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
10.) Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?
11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

Lets go!

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
It's sad to say, I'd rather loose the palettes and eyeshadows! You can still make up many makeup looks with the remaining products.

2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Hmm. Chop it all off! I'll rock the wig look - no one would ever know! ;)

3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
A coral cheek, although i'd try and cheat a little and find a coral/pink coloured blush!

4.) If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Oh that is a tough one, probably clothes! If I spent it all on makeup, i'd never get to the bottom of the products!

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Eyeliner as lipstick! I can't imagine my eyelids agreeing with lipstick on them! 

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Well, we don't have Sephora in the UK. I'd have to be biased and say MAC.

7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
One eyeshadow colour! The varying lip colour can give the impression of different makeup looks.

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Summer clothes in the winter, build those layers up to keep warm! hehe.

9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Dark Nails :)

10.) Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?
Favourite lip product. I need to conceal these tired eyes and make you believe I get enough sleep ;)

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Messy bun, less effort and still looks great.

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
Never wear lipgloss again. I barely wear the stuff anyway as it is haha!

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
Sharpie them on, but i'm going to be a smart ass here. Sharpie is a permanent marker, so I wont actually need to draw them on everyday! I'd much rather that than be that hairy that I have to shave them! 

14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
I would rather live without nail polish! No makeup - phworrrr thats a big ask! ;)

Right, so that's my answers to the tag. I choose to tag:

Also anyone else who wishes to take part! :)

Be sure to mention I tagged you! I'm looking forward to seeing your answers!

Mascara madness!

6.14.2014


I'm pretty sure it is every girls dream to have gorgeously voluminous, curled long lashes. We have so many makeup brands out there offering different results with all of the varieties of mascara that's available to us. What on earth do we choose? Biggest question - do they deliver? This post only consists of 3 mascaras I've previously used - may I say its most definitely awkward holding onto old or empty products long enough to feature in a blog post! I'm a bigger fan of the plastic combs/brushes over the 'original' types of brushes. I think its cause I find it a cleaner application of all the mascara products, I also find it easier to seperate my lashes and keep them from clumping! (who wants that?) Keep reading to find out what I thought of these bad boys...


I understand this isn't the most budget friendly mascara but I can honestly tell you its worth the money! If it wasn't for the fact that I enjoy trying out new products, I think this would be my number one mascara to turn to! I've gone through 2 of these bottles in the past - very happy from the moment I opened the tube, to the last application with the little product that was remaining in it! The brush on this is great, varying in length bristles, with the end of the brush being specifically designed for the corners of your lashes or even your lower ones! Benefit claim that this is "UK's no.1 best selling mascara" - I put my hand up and say I agree with this statement! 


I had high expectations for this product. After spending 50p more on the Benefit mascara, I expected good results from this one. One thing that caught my attention was the brush on this mascara. Smashbox refer to it as the 'dual brush and comb applicator'. The brush looks like a standard applicator but on one side the bristles are longer to resemble a comb. (sorry my picture doesn't do this design justice! The mascara kept on rolling around haha!). I don't really know what to think of this to be honest. It's not bad - but it's not exactly brilliant either. I find my lashes don't look as defined as I seem to feel some other mascaras seem to give off. If anything they seem to remain quite straight and flat - I want curled and voluminous! 


This mascara is the one i'm currently using at the moment - i'm a very happy Kate with the payoff it gives! My first thoughts of seeing this mascara (considering i've not used a Maxfactor mascara before, but kept on hearing good things about their range!) was how the bursh looked. I guess you could say it was a little daunting seeing how this the brush is in comparison to how small some of the bristles are. I was worried initially about it being a very clumpy mascara - the bottle claimed to give a natural look, which reassured me that things will be okay! This mascara really does give a fuller lashed look with length and volume without looking clumpy at all! Such a bargainous price of £10.99 compared to something like the other mascaras in this post which are almost double the price! I'm very happy with this and I think i'll definitely repurchase again! 

Are you loving a particular mascara right now? What type of mascara wand do you prefer? I'd love to hear from you! 




Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream ~ Product Review

6.13.2014


So I just wanted to write a little something about this product here from Revlon. For those of you who might not already know, i'm quite pale for the majority of the year, unless I actually get the chance to sit outside in the sun (when the UK has it!). Around the summer time I struggle to find a BB cream that's not too yellow or orange for my skin tone - but will also let my skin breathe in the warmer months. This was my golden product last year - my go to staple in my makeup kit. I even remember cutting the top off the product with scissors to really get every little piece of the formula out of the tube! So immediately as a climate here got warmer, I went on the hunt and picked it up again in Boots. The product usually retails for about £9.99 - although Boots usually throw in a 3 for 2 offer or buy one get one half price offer!


I wear the lightest shade in the collection - 010 light pale. The consistency of this product is not too thin so it slips and slides, but not too thick also. No one wants a cakey face!

Unfortunately this post isn't a good one! *sobs sob*
I don't know if Revlon have altered the formula of this product since last year - or simply that my skin has adjusted to wearing other types of products. I just cannot get on with this product! No matter how long the time gap is between me putting moisturiser on my face, to then putting on this BB cream - it literally curdles. Its so off putting to look at! My moisturiser isn't any different from what i'd use last year, which leaves me a little puzzled at this issue. It's sad to say that I doubt this product will enter my makeup bag again. It's gone from being a golden item to one that I want to throw in the bin asap! 

Does anyone have any recommendations of BB creams good for the summer months and fairly pale skin? I'd love to hear what you use! 

A week in Paris ~ Part Five

6.12.2014


Part five, sadly the final part! I wish I had a little longer in Paris, but there's nothing like going home to your own bed! We checked out of our hotel and went for a final walk around the area before making our way back to the airport to fly home! For anyone travelling to Paris and is looking for somewhere to stay, I recommend the hotel which I stayed in. We stayed in Elysees Opera which was a lovely little hotel with perfect views out of the rooms balcony! 

I didn't take many photos on the last day, but i'll show you a couple more of my photos from the trip! Keep an eye on my Flickr account







A week in Paris ~ Part Four

6.11.2014

Yep, snapped a shot of the view down from the top of the Eiffel tower!
So our second from last day in Paris consisted of visiting the Bastille French Market and then making our way to the Eiffel Tower to climb up to the top! 

Bastille Market
I loved walking around the market! there was so many food stalls, craft stalls, clothing etc! All so pretty to look at (and for the food stalls - to eat at!)

Who doesn't love to see (and wished they owned) a 5kg tub of Nutella?
One of the stalls we stopped at was a Crepe stall. The smell of freshly made sweet and savoury crepes was sensational! Michael ordered a 'crepe avec sucre' - I stole a cheeky bite or two from it! It was lush! If there is one thing I can recommend if you go to Paris, do visit the Bastille market, its worth it!


Of course whilst in Paris we visited the Eiffel Tower! Who wouldn't!? The weather for this was just lovely, the sun was shining but it wasn't too hot! We booked our tickets through Easy Pass Tours who were incredibly friendly and gave us a little info about the monument! I never knew that the tower was a she, or that she was only meant to stand for 6 months, hand painted every 7 years, or that if she wasn't built and another idea was chosen, we could have possibly had a giant pink elephant, or a massive iron guillotine to be put in her place instead! haha!

I took many pictures of the Eiffel tower and even the Arc de Triumph - keep an eye out on my Flickr account for the photos!


A week in Paris ~ Part Three

6.10.2014


It was a little bit rainy on the morning of the day we visit the Louvre and Notre Dame. But that didn't stop us getting up early and walking over to spend the day looking at all the beautiful sights to be seen and art! There is something quite pleasing about being a walkable distance between the hotel and monuments, you soak in your surroundings a lot more I believe!

I didn't take many pictures inside the Louvre (I was too busy looking around at the artwork) but I did mange to snap a picture of Mona Lisa and Venus De Milo!


The weather brightened up and we went for a little walk over to Notre Dame and passed the Pont des Arts (known for its 'lovelocks' or padlocks at are attached to any free spot on the bridge). 


The Notre Dame was breathtakingly beautiful! I was pleasently surprised to see that it was free entry and no tickets were required! I did take pictures of the inside, but i'm planning to put all my photos on my Flickr account so keep your eyes peeled for when they're uploaded on that!


A week in Paris ~ Part Two

6.09.2014


If the image above doesn't give you a big enough hint... Yes I went to Disneyland Paris! 
(prepare to get the small violins out...) Sadly I was a Disneyland deprived child, I never had the chance to go. At the age of 20 I think it's perfectly acceptable to relive my childhood and get myself to Disneyland! Michael and I got the Disneyland Express bus to and from the park (which cheekily involved us napping on the way there and back! oops!)


Ever since we had booked the tickets to visit the two Disney parks, I was determined to get myself the Minnie Mouse ears (even more determined to get Michael wearing Mickey Mouse ears hehe..)


~ The Alice In Wonderland maze! (Michael admitted he hasn't seen Alice In Wonderland -- GASPPP)


For those of you who might not already know, I absolutely love the green aliens from Toy Story. With the lack of variety in green alien plushies available, I was overly excited finding them displayed in a doorway. I needed a picture! 


My inner child came out discovering that you could eat at Pizza Planet. Oh my, I felt like I was one of Andy's friends off to Pizza Planet in Toy Story 1. I'm not going to lie, I'm a lover of food (haha) so finding out that it was a pizza buffet.. mm I was set on feasting on pizza for lunch! 

We went on the rides, walked around the parks numerous times. I really enjoyed the day! I'd love to go back there again (I'll probably end up behaving like it was my first time going again!) I'm going to finish this post with a picture of Michael and I on the Mad Hatters Tea Cups - in full Disney spirit! 



A week in Paris ~ Part One

6.08.2014


So as you might have discovered after seeing my previous post - during the week that has just passed, I have been exploring Paris! I've not been out of the UK for several years due to not owning a passport *sobs* - so going to Paris had me ridiculously excited!

My boyfriend and I were flying in the late afternoon/evening of the Monday. You might have gathered from my excitement I might have behaved like a 'fat kid in a cake shop' prior to the flight. Hehe I didn't care - i was far too excited! I had studied french in school but only as a GCSE, I knew some of the language but was very rusty! 

cheeky flight snap - why not?! ;)
(i'm not trying to sound cheesy) Entering Paris and being on our way to our Hotel gave me this realisation that yep - you're in France Kate, French signs, French locals, French food.. Not that I wasn't expecting this at all of course aha! But I was out of the UK and in a new environment which I just could wait to adjust to! 

Keep you're eyes glued to this blog and you'll see where we went and what we did on our holiday in Paris! 

Oh for you Disney lovers out there..
