Come along with me...Camden


Recently I made my first trip to Camden Town, a lot of people talk about it and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about! I was surprised at how delicate and pretty the area was, I assumed it all to be market stalls. I was also pleasantly surprised to see an Arts and Crafts market where small businesses were selling their handmade goods; it was great to speak to fellow designers and buy their products. 

We were stumbling over places to eat, the area is filled with continental food stalls and the aroma is AMAZING. It may sound boring..but I opted for Fish and Chips, 'you go all that way and have fish and chips?!' yes I know but it was sold in a newspaper cone and looked so good, how could I not?! After, I bought the most delicious chocolate brownie known to man...just look at them! Great British Bake Off worthy I'd say. To wash the tastes away I drank a floral cold tea, never really tried something like this before but it tasted very sweet and a nice summery alternative to normal tea (the man also promised me it has health benefits...) 

After our stroll through the markets, canals and gift stalls we headed back along the High street. I was amazed by the fact that these original buildings had a modern twist on their fronts.  Large sculptures covered the bold  brickwork, making every single one different. I thought it was a great quirky addition to the street. 

Have any of you visited Camden before?

Come along with me...Sunny Beach

Helena Park sunny beach bulgaria
During the Summer of this year I enjoyed a family holiday in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria. I was apprehensive at first but during my visit I met the most amazing people, ate some tasty foods and explored the sites. 

The majority of these photos were taken in the old town of Nessebar, I loved the quirky little shops and old architectural detail the buildings and churches displayed. It was a very hot day walking through the town so we made use of the small unique cafes and drink bars!

It's great to look back on photo's but I just wish I could go back again already..next year I hope! Hope you enjoyed these collection of photo's :)

The Beginning of a Collection


Ahhhh hello!
 I'm back from my holiday and I had an amazing time, look out for a picture post coming very soon! But I thought the first thing I'd update you with is something very important...MY FIRST MAC PURCHASE! This is definitely a shock for some people but the MAC counter at Dutyfree was calling for me immediately so I couldn't help but take a look!

I'm not a huge lipstick wearer but I've always wanted to give it a go and to start off my MAC lipstick collection (huge emphasise on the word collection) I opted for Creme Cup, a lot of bloggers and youtubers always recommend this as a first lippy so I had to listen to them really didn't I?! ;) And I can't fault their opinion! It is a lovely pinky nudey shade which is so basic yet easy to wear, I think I may do a lil make up tutorial featuring it as it's already one of my favourites! 

I'm really beginning to regret not photographing more products whilst I was on holiday, think of the lighting! :(

 Anyway, I'm really glad to have purchased this, hopefully the first of many...
What MAC lipsticks do you recommend?
