I have the travel bug, I would be lying if I told you any different. The more I get out into the world and explore, the more I want to continue doing so. Travel is addictive but 'if we were meant to stay in one place for the rest of our lives, we'd have roots instead of feet'. The world is breathtaking and I just want to see as much of it as I can. I just wish I could share these adventures with my family too and my only way of doing that is through my blog. I made a promise to you at the end of 2014 that I would feature lots more travel on my blog this year and I am already frantically planning my 2015 trips, I want to visit anywhere and everywhere! In the past two weeks, I've done more of Canada, Mexico and then back to London for fashion week. So far so good - I'm thoroughly exhausted but I couldn't be happier. Let's talk about part one of my Mexico travels...

Hello hello hello! After a long week I thought I'd post a nice top pampering products post. Who doesn't love a good pamper? Christmas is over, things seem a little bit crazy at the moment so I really think it's always good to take some time out to yourself and just pamper. I wanted to put together some of my favourite products for a good old pamper, so get your cosy slippers, grab a hot chocolate, run a bath and let's talk...

I'm going to start this post by saying, which blogger doesn't own this? It seems that everyone got this for Christmas (me included) and rightly so, it's an absolute gem of a product. I saw this palette when I was in Canada and knew I had to have it. I recently became a Nars obsessive and can't get enough of the brand and it's beautiful products, trust me, this is a keeper and you need it in your life.

Hey lovelies! So as most of you know, I decided to add lots more travel to my blog again this year because so many of you supported me and seemed to enjoy my travel posts throughout 2014 - I loved writing them too. I absolutely love travel blogging. The world is such a beautiful place and there is so much to see - I just want to get out there and see it all (and take you with me of course!). I am currently doing a little bit more exploring in Canada (until London Fashion Week anyway - I will be home for all the Fashion Week fun!) so before I flew I shot something a little bit different to show you. I thought I'd do a little packing post so you can see what I'm taking with me!

I couldn't not do a blog post about this outfit - easily my favourite two-piece ever. I can't wait to talk to you about it...you may remember it from my Instagram (@emshelx) and I've tweeted about it a few times too! I just absolutely love it.

I am in such a Valentinesy mood at the moment and really fancied writing a kind of Valentines tool kit/general date night tool kit post. Obviously this is just a bit of a laugh, I don't think you should make yourself all pampered just for a male, I think you should do it for you and love yourself first. But anyway, let's talk about getting prepped for a date night!

Burgers, burgers, burgers. You can pretty much get a burger everywhere nowadays, diners seem to be popping up everywhere and everyone seems to be doing the same thing. I am excited to bring you a review of one of the first big burger bars - this place did the whole crazy burger thing before anyone else did in the North. I am also proud to say that Almost Famous is a Northern brand, it started years ago in Manchester and today, we have one in Leeds. Yorkshire is officially on the burger map. I'm going to crown myself the burger queen because let's face it, I've eaten way too many burgers in my life. Let's talk about Almost Famous and if you haven't heard of this place, where have you been?

When I was invited to write about 'writing', I could hardly say no. It sounds like a funny topic but actually, it's a pretty good one. I enjoy writing personal blog posts so I really wanted to get my teeth into this one. See, we're already talking about my love for writing. Many ways of communing are now digital, emails, Whatsapp, texting, social media and there's nothing wrong with this, it's great to see how the world is evolving but, I don't think you can beat putting pen to paper. I personally love receiving hand written notes, letters, postcards, you name it - it feels personal and nice. I'm that girl who will forever read novels rather than get a Kindle. I like tradition. It's crazy how quickly the digital world took over but I think with Valentine's day coming up, it's nice to think about the little things that matter. Today I'm going to talk about how nice a hand written note can be, rather than an expensive gift... let's get personal!

I love this outfit so much, I just had to share it with you. Spring may be just around the corner but it's still pretty chilly! I Instagrammed (@emshelx) this two-piece and so many people asked where it was from so I thought I should probably write a blog post about it! Let's do this...

When something promises to give me up to 45% new, extra lashes which are thicker and fuller, naturally, I'm interested. Who wouldn't want this product? Today I'm talking to you about something special which I've been trying for quite some time with an exciting new company! Let's get beautiful lashes!

Wow, it's that time again. It only feels like yesterday I was writing my Christmas gift guides! I do love Valentines though because it feels like Spring is coming! Turn away now if you're anti-Valentines day. I personally love Valentines day (consumers dream) more of a way to show my love towards everyone - not just a partner. If you are doing Valentines day this year, here a few gift ideas for you - for him and her and you can order them all online so don't worry if you leave it until last minute either!

Christmas seems like a long time ago but I still feel bad for all the binge eating I did. You know what, who cares, there's no time like the present to get back on track. After my Missguided activewear post I promised you lots more health and fitness this year so here I am again, talking about health and fitness! It's not like me to eat unhealthily really but over Christmas and my 21st birthday, I guess I ate a little more than normal. I don't weigh myself so I'm not sure if I've gained any weight but I don't feel as good in myself as I did before Christmas. Getting back on track is always hard when January comes around but with a little bit of help we can do it, you know what they say, Summer bodies are made in Winter! Everyone has a different body ideal and I don't think anything is right or wrong, but, you can't beat feeling fit and healthy so if you're wanting a few tips on how to get back on track after a bad month or two, this is for you...
