Three Places I Would Like To Travel To in 2017

Travelling has never been something I've been interested in. When most of my friends swanned off to exotic places on their gap years, I was pretty happy just working in my local pub. Since moving to and back from Oxford, I feel like it's whet my appetite to travel more and get the hell out of Kent. I'm always adding to my 'places to travel' list on my phone and there's certainly an extensive collection of cities and countries all over the world on there. My plan though is to start small and closer to home before I spend the big bucks on flights to JFK and LAX.


Yes I know I've only just been there (you can see my photo diary here) but to be quite honest, we didn't really do much. I'm dying to go to Anne Frank's house, the A'DAM Lookout and just immerse myself more in the architecture rather than the nightlife.


I swear every time I watch The Michalak's vlogs when they're in Bath, I fall in love with the place and I've never even been! I'm hoping to pop down there for a weekend when the weather warms up and experience the Roman Baths, wild swimming at Claverton Weir and a mooch around the centre.


Even though I highly doubt I'll be able to afford a summer holiday this year, I would love more than anything to go to Santorini. It seems like the type of place where you could take a photo anywhere and it would look picturesque. Victoria and Sammi's photos from their trips this year made me even more desperate to go so depending on my bank balance, I'll be heading there this summer!

Of course there's way more than just these three places I'd love to travel to this year but realistically, they're my top three for 2017! I'd love to know any other places in the UK that would be lovely to go to for a weekend or where you would love to go so please leave your suggestions in the comments!


Five Reasons Why You Need To Buy From Super Facialist

As I grow up I'm finding it harder and harder to find high street skincare which doesn't break me out. La Roche Posay feels too chemically for me, Nivea brings me out in a rash and the others just don't really do much. Super Facialist is an absolute gem though and I'm a huge fan girl for the stuff, hence this post.

Super Facialist Una Brennan

There's something for everyone

Does your skin need hydrating? That's fine, use the rose collection. Spotty skin? No problem, just grab a salicylic acid product. Anti-ageing? Pick up something from the vitamin C+ range.

It actually works

I'm on my second tube of moisturiser, nearly finished my face mask and a few weeks through my cleanser and I can tell you now, I wouldn't have got through that many Superfacialist products if they didn't work.

They're a decent price

And they're also on offer a lot in Boots starting from £7.. It's honestly such a good price, I'd say one of the best drugstore skincare brands for sure!

It's created by specialists

One of the most accomplished facialists and skincare specialists in the UK, Úna Brennan, is behind the brand and if that's not enough to impress you I don't know what is.

Their salicylic range will sort spots right out

Unfortunately I think the scrub has been discontinued (gutted) but the cleansing wash and face mask will reduce blemishes and give you a much healthier complexion. If you've got spot prone skin like me, this collection will be your new saviour!

Please say you're officially persuaded. Go on, give it a go!


Why I'm Not Making Resolutions This Year

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you're all feeling sufficiently hungover and reading this curled up on the sofa feeling sorry for yourself. That's how I've spent today anyway!

Just one of the many traditions which New Year entails is making resolutions. You know all the normal ones, "I'm going to get fitter", "I'm going to eat healthier" and "I'm going to save money". Pfft, have I ever stuck to them? Nah. Never.

2017 will be different though and not in the way that I'm going to stick to my resolutions but in the way that I'm just not going to make any. Then I know I won't reach March and have already abandoned all my goals and objectives for the year. Instead, I'm going to live the same way I have been for the last couple of months and change it up if and when I want to. Makes sense doesn't it? This way I can avoid failure which I something I have unfortunately experienced throughout the last few years as a result of my so called resolutions. 

Even though 'twenty-seventeen' hasn't quite got the same ring to it as 'twenty-sixteen', I've got a feeling it's going to be a lot better and I'm going to achieve a lot more.
