Unique Hair Salon Hessle | Review*



I was recently asked along to Unique Hair Salons in my home town of Hessle (the outskirts of Hull) for a hair make over! This could not have come at a better time as my hair was in desperate need of some attention. I get my hair done properly about once a year, just because my mum cuts it for me (she used to be a hair dresser) and I * don't think it looks that bad ?? * when I have roots? Anyway, it needed a bit of a spruce up so I was very excited to go along and have a revamp.

The Ultimate traveller packing list | Travel


What to pack for south east asia


I have put together my ultimate packing list for backpacking South East Asia. I found it really hard deciding what to take with me on my trip and read numerous lists however most things that they said to take I ended up binning ! Travelling South East Asia is pretty easy, its not the third world and you are never too far away from a shop so if you do happen to pack the wrong things you can easily and very cheaply pick up the bits you need. I ended up binning clothes to replace with new ones that I wanted to buy!

House Tour | The Dressing Room



A few weeks ago I wrote all about my new Bathroom and gave you a little tour of how we have decorated. Todays post is all about my dressing room! I have always wanted a dressing room and when we where decided what to do with the rooms it seemed like the most logical decision :D. As we don't have a huge bedroom it made sense to have all of my clothes, accessories and beauty items all in one place!



I have collected up a lot of little trinkets over the years so it was actually hard to decide how I wanted everything but after a lot of moving things around I think I'm finally happy with it all. My Mum and my Auntie helped me strip the wallpaper and 
re-paint the room in white and blush pink.


These bags I originally wanted to put in frame but for some reason I could not find the right sized frames so while I was looking I popped them on top of the wardrobe and ended up keeping them there as they looked cute. The Tiffany bag was what my engagement ring arrived in so that had to be displayed :D



I didn't want too much clutter on the side however I did want to display a few pieces like my perfumes, some candles etc. I decided to stick with rose gold and pink themed accessories and I love the way it turned out. This basket I picked up from Matalan and the little plate was from Home Bargains.



My dressing table is my favourite thing as I love having a space to sit and get ready properly rather than sitting on the floor or in a bathroom mirror. Again I didn't want too much out on the sides apart from my make up brushes. My cushion on the chair I bought whilst travelling in Cambodia, I think I paid about £4 for it and its so cute.



The table its self is from Ikea, actually all of the furniture is as it was perfect for the space we have and looks clean and simple. I also picked up my brush pots from Ikea too and the photo frames. The prints are just ones that I have collected over the past few weeks, I also printed a few different ones off Pinterest. 



I hope you like my little tour and maybe gain a bit of inspiration for organising your own space.

Do you have your own dressing room?

House Tour | The Bathroom


I have been a bit M.I.A over the past few weeks here on my blog and on my social media as some of you may know... We bought a house :D. We found the one we wanted in late November and got set on all the paperwork over the Christmas period. After a pretty smooth transaction we exchanged and picked up the keys on the 27th January. After about two weeks of hard work stripping wall paper, painting, decorating etc we finally started to call our house a home. The room that we did the least to (so far) is the bathroom so we thought we should share this one with you first.

#IWouldMiss Campaign | Travel*



6 months ago while travelling in Cambodia I spent two nights at the Mad Monkey Hostel on the island of Koh Rong Somloem. Little did I know that this island was in the middle of nowhere and had no phone signal and no wifi. This scared me more than anything as the thought of no contact with the outside world was horrendous. Anyone who is in a long term relationship will understand not speaking to their other half for longer than a day or two is really horrible and not what you want when you are separated by half the world.

Top 5 Designer Bridal Shoes | Wedding









I think I have looked at more wedding shoes on Pinterest and online than I have actual wedding dresses. I do LOVE shoes but for some reason I am over excited about the ones I choose for my wedding. I decided to share with you a few pairs of designer bridal shoes that I love the most (currently). I am thinking that I would like a long dress so I suppose you wouldn't actually be able to see my shoes so I don't particularly need anything that fancy however, I will only get to choose these once so I think I need something special. I would also like a pair that I can re-wear. You spend a lot of money on weddings so something that can be re-used, should be. 

Who are your favourite shoe designers? Any recommendations?

How to hygge: 3 ways to embrace the Danish interior design concept in your home 


Pronounced ‘hooga’, hygge is one of the hottest designs trends around right now. Originating in Denmark - where it’s considered more a way of life than simply a home interior style - the concept refers to a sense of cosiness and warmth, and of spending time with loved ones. If you’re intrigued by this idea and want to welcome some hygge into your home, it’s worth paying attention to the following three tips.

5 Years of Champagne & Lemonade.ox !


This year has been one of the best years of my life. I have such amazing experiences, tried so many new things and been on the craziest of adventures. I am so lucky to say that some of these amazing memories made would have not have happened without my blog. I really can not believe the amount of opportunities that this little blog has brought me and now 5 years down the line Im still going strong. I say it each year but I really didn't think that clueless me sitting in my tiny room at university would still be sharing my thoughts on the internet 5 years later. I have made some of the best of friends through having a blog, I have learnt so much, it has helped me establish my career, it has grown my confidence and of course brought me so many new experiences! 2016 was jam packed and looking back I don't even know how I fit it all in.
