The Shock Mascara For False Lash Effect YSL Review - Yves Saint Laurent Shock Mascara

yves saint laurent the shock mascaraWhen I heard YSL were launching a new eye product I simply had to get my hands on it. When I found out it was a mascara, I was even more excited. I’m all about those flawless make up staples, that means, a great mascara, a trusty foundation and an even better concealer. Once you’ve got the basics right, you’re pretty much sorted. One of my desert island essentials is a trusty mascara and I'm always on the hunt for new ones. If you read my recent blog post about the top mascaras and eye products for long lashes, you'll know I'm obsessed with getting the longest lashes possible. Today I’m really excited to be doing a review of a product barely spoken about until now, The Shock Mascara for false lash effect by YSL. I hope you love these images as much as I do. Wait until you see the before and after!

The Thoughts Of A 20-Something-Year Old 23 - Things I've Learnt By 23






Hello hello! In December (gosh that feels like years ago) I turned 23. It feels really weird to be 23, I kind of wanted to stay 21 forever, but as my Grandad always says, ageing is a good thing, it means you're healthy as you're growing old! I wanted to get this live on my actual birthday but just didn't have the time so today I wanted to do a nice little personal post about 23 things I've learnt to mark my 23rd birthday, albeit very late. I hope anyone can relate to these though.

The Ultimate Guide To Visiting New York City - What To Do And See In New York City

new york street style

Today is the day where I finally put my huge New York city guide live. It seems everyone is planning on visiting New York this year (or at some point) so it's best I get this up now, get it screenshotted, bookmarked and send it to your friends because I'm hoping this is going to be the only New York city guide you need for your trip. I just stepped foot off a plane from a trip from New York (I was lucky enough to visit with Simon Malls, the most incredible malls you've ever seen, I had no idea they had them all over the US either) so it seems fitting to publish this today. I have visited New York four times now, so I feel like now is a good time to write an updated guide, with everything you need to see, do and eat when visiting New York. I lived in Montreal for a year which is only an hours flight from New York so it really does feel like a second home to me. It doesn't matter if you're visiting New York for 2 days or 20, you can definitely fit a lot of stuff into your time in New York and hopefully this comprehensive guide of the best things to see and do when you're in NYC will help you out. Every time I visit a new place I make sure I have as many recommendations as possible, so here they all are, tried and tested in one easy place to make sure you have the best time in New York. I'm so excited. Here's everything you need to know for your trip to New York. Let's do this.

The Most Instagrammable Cities To Travel To And Visit



Recently, I read a blog post by CEWE Photoworld about the top 10 most instagrammed places and it inspired my own blog post about the top Instagrammable travel destinations from the places I’ve travelled to so far. I’ve already done one blog post about my favourite worldwide destinations (so far) so wanted to do an updated one but this time, focusing on the top Instagrammable places! In todays day, many of us like to Instagram things (which is totally fine, this blog post is just a bit of fun, obviously life isn't just about Instagramming and it's always better to see it with your own eyes). I feel fortunate that I’ve visited a lot of insta-worthy places, which you’ll find below and this year? I hope to visit even more, such as Yelloh-Village and the Basque County, Fiji, Australia, Singapore. You name it, I want to tick them all off this year. Let’s see where made the cut so far...Here goes, in no particular order, here are some of my favourite most instagrammable cities to visit! 

Top Tips To Feeling Zen, Relaxed And De-Stressed In 2017


If you read my blog post about the highs and lows of 2016, you'll know that this year I plan on taking a little more 'me' time, that means focusing on my wellbeing and you should do that too! We talk about health and fitness but often we forget to discuss wellbeing, one of my main reasons for going to the gym. I love how clear it makes my head feel, it relaxes me and de-stresses me. When I lived in Canada, I did a mixture of hot yoga,barre and pilates 5 times a week, and I've never felt stronger or more content, relaxed and free. Yoga and pilates, just like the gym, make me feel instantly revitalised, strong and give me a clear head. One of my resolutions this year is to do more yoga and it inspired this post. I want to give you some of my top tips to zen this New Year.
