10 Things To Remember In Your Luggage

Holiday season has many of us ready and raring to go. People are putting their out of office hats on and jet setting around the globe, or staying closer to home for a well needed break. Before we can escape on our holidays and long weekends, we have the trusty task of packing our essentials into a box with wheels. I personally love packing for a holiday – I find it so exciting! The unpacking, not so much. It’s like setting off a big flare that writes “BACK TO REALITY” in the sky. Packing for a trip away can be stressful for many, especially if you’re prone to forgetting things.

That’s where this post steps in. I wanted to share the items I know I’ve personally forgotten and been surprised that I actually needed them! They, of course, won’t apply to all and some of the objects are the less obvious things that you wouldn’t put at the top of your list (but that’s probably why they are forgotten). I remember our family holiday to Wales a few years ago where we had to turn round as soon as we left for my sister’s coat – you wouldn’t get far in Wales without one of those!

Am I like my zodiac sign?

Star signs. Horoscopes. Astrology. What does that all mean for me? I’ve always been guilty since I was old enough to read my mum’s magazines, of skipping to the page where I would be told my fortunes for today/this month/this year. Now I’m older and have a decent amount of experience under my belt – I wanted to delve into my star sign and see if my personality lines up with it at all.

So if you’re a Cancer like myself, or just have an interest in the weird and wonderful world of star signs, then I hope you enjoy!

10 Quotes To Keep You Going

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I find silent words to be the most comforting at times where I’m battling my own brain and finding it difficult to give myself some credit.

£25 skincare routine?! (+ Vanity Planet Review)

Good morning, good evening or goodnight wherever you are! Firstly, I hope you’re doing well – I’m currently sat itching to take my makeup off, but ironically wanted to write this skincare post first.

Sometimes stripping things back into their simplest and most affordable form is what we like to see. I’m yet to venture too far out into the world of more high-end items that are classed as an investment. If you’ve got a bank of any pricier products you swear by – please leave them/any links down below! My aim for 2019 (as per my previous post, cheeky plug) is to incorporate more cruelty free items into my routine, and upon writing this, I realised I have quite a long way to go.

However, not everything I use is tested on animals – including the Vanity Planet skin spa, which if you’d like to see a brief review of, please keep reading.
