10 Japanese Concepts to Improve Your Life & Blog!

10 Japanese Concepts

I’ve been a bit MIA from my blog this month, for a variety of factors including spending time with my family, my anxiety, money worries, and mostly from lack of inspiration. This month I’ve been taking some time out and reading a lot of inspiring books, which have really helped me. One of the books I’ve been reading is Enchantment by Guy Kawasaki, which is amazing, I’ll write a review soon. One of the parts of Enchantment that stood out to me was a list of 10 Japanese aesthetic principles, which is originally from Garr Reynold’s book Presentation Zen Design: Simple Design Principles and Techniques to Enhance Your Presentation. I’m sharing this, and...

11 Films I’ve Seen Recently

11 Films I’ve Seen Recently

11 Films I’ve Seen Recently… During this past month or so, I’ve seen a lot of films both in the cinema and at home. I’ve decided to write little reviews about each one, in case you’re undecided about seeing any of them. I thought it’d be useful to write both positive and negative reviews because I tend to only see positive ones (or sometimes extremely negative ones) on social media! The Jungle Book The live-action Disney remake of The Jungle Book was lovely to watch. The CGI and cinematic views make it worth seeing on a bigger screen, but only if you like the original story because it doesn’t differ...

1500 Followers Giveaway! Colourpop, Stationery, Disney & More

giveaway

Recently I reached 1500 followers on Twitter (although it does fluctuate a little), 800 followers on Instagram, and 800 on Bloglovin’. As I hit all of these milestones within about a week of each other, I figured it made sense to do a giveaway to say thank-you. So here we are. The main prize is a Colourpop Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Beeper, because it’s difficult to get Colourpop in the UK, so I thought a lot of people would like that. I’m also giving away a few more makeup bits (including Barry M, Makeup Revolution & Seventeen), a cute Disney store Tinkerbell keyring, some stationery, some Invisibobbles because...

The Sky Garden

sky-garden-inside

I’ve been meaning to visit the Sky Garden in Fenchurch Street for a while now, and I finally got to go yesterday. It’s a literal garden, with a bar, cafe, restaurant, up high in London, with a fantastic view over the city. Did I mention that it’s free?! It can be a challenge to book tickets because it’s so popular, but persistence is definitely worth it (or booking a slot quite far in advance). The Sky Garden is on floor 35 of the 20 Fenchurch Street building (A.K.A. the Walkie Talkie building), the 5th tallest building in London, opposite the Shard. It really is spectacular, especially from the outdoor viewing balcony,...

10+ Amazing Places for Vegan Food in London

vegan-food-london

I’ve been vegan since around February, and living in London means there’s so many places to get vegan food! Over the last few months, I’ve visited many restaurants and cafes that offer vegan food, and some that are specifically vegan or vegetarian, so I’ve decided to compile a variety of my favourites into a big blog post for you! (Also because my Instagram is always filled with pictures of vegan food, so I thought they could serve a dual purpose). My Favourite Vegan Restaurants Mildred’s: Soho & Camden My friend (who isn’t even vegan) loves Mildred’s and could believe I’d never been, so we had dinner there together one night in Camden. It’s...

Trying Out Colourpop Makeup

colourpop

You may know (because I’ve mentioned it in many blog posts), that bae spent a study abroad year in California and recently got back. He was awesome enough to let me order some Colourpop makeup to his accommodation and brought it all back for me, so I got a bit carried away and ordered a load of ultra matte liquid lipsticks, gel eyeliners and cream blushes… I wanted to try the Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks mostly, because they’re so popular and apparently the formula is the same as the Kylie Jenner lip kits. I ordered a few pink-neutral shades, including Clueless, Beeper and Tulle, as well as a purple (Bedazzled)...

Jadu Luxury Tea

It’s been 10 days since I posted a blog, who am I? My boyfriend got back from his study abroad year in California, so that’s my excuse. We’ve been doing fun things like seeing the Book of Mormon on Wednesday, and voting remain in the EU Referendum yesterday. Yay politics. Okay so now for the actual topic of this blog post. Tea. Everyone knows that I have a tea obsession. I drink way too much tea, and I love trying out different types. So, of course, I jumped at the opportunity to review some luxury tea from Jadu, winners of the Great Taste Awards 2015. Jadu teas are sourced from China,...

My Crazy Hair

my-crazy-hair-2

Since starting university last year, my hair has been an array of ‘crazy’ colours, including varying shades of purple, pink and blue dip-dye, even purple and green at one point, then a few months ago I dyed it all a dark navy blue / black. I get bored quickly, and when my brown hair started growing through, I decided to bleach the roots and dye them bright blue instead of re-dying it blue/black. I had leftover peroxide and bleach powder so of course I decided to dip-dye the rest of my hair, and went a bit crazy with pink and blue dye, Harley Quinn style. It all worked out well,...

MCM Comic Con

dodie

This post is a bit late, but I was lucky enough to go to London’s MCM Comic Con at the end of May with two of my friends. It was a really last minute decision to go (mainly because I wanted to see my favourite YouTubers who happened to be doing a panel on Sunday, and of course we were all keen to see what Comic Con was like). We had a wonderful time, and although we only went on the Sunday, we managed to see pretty much everything, and it was a well-needed break from our exams. As you can see from my pictures, I decided to go dressed...

Camden Gal Vibes

How is it June already!? It feels like I only finished my exams yesterday, but it’s been a week now and still haven’t published a blog post… I spend a lot of my time in Camden, it’s an awesome place filled with awesome people, quirky shops and far too many tourists. I like to think I dress a little bit ‘alternative’, usually with little tennis skirts, Star Wars t-shirts and knee-high socks, with my patched denim jacket, and of course my hair is always brightly coloured. Due to this, sometimes people look at me a bit weirdly, unless I’m in Camden or Shoreditch or another area filled with students, but...
