I'm heeereeee!!!

I'm heeeeeeere!!! I've finally arrived at my hotel  in Oman fourteen hours after I left my house in London this morning. It has been a looong day of flying but it wasn't terrible really and I'm just so grateful to have arrived safely :).  
My travelling outfit - casual and comfy
Blazer: Zara, Legging: Zara, Scarf: Uniqlo Bag: Louis Vuitton, Trainers: Converse, Watch: Michael Kors
 (Sorry for the bad lighting, took this in the airport but have filmed ootd video which will be up when I get back)
As I'm sure you've worked out by now I have free wifi in my hotel room which is BLOODY BRILLIANT as it means I can talk to all of my loved ones back home and update my blog of course ;). No pictures of Oman itself yet as it was dark when we got here and we came straight to the hotel but here was my day in pictures....

✈ I'm leaving on a jet plane ♫

Hello guys and once again Merry Christmas!! I fly to Oman early tomorrow morning - flight leaves at 08.00 and I arrive at 22.20 local time (long flight, wahhhhh ☹) but I'm very excited!! We need to leave for the airport at around 05.30 am so I can't decide whether to try to quickly get a few hours sleep now or not... I just don't want to be really tired and irritable in the long and boring airport queues but I think I'd rather sleep on the plane if I can so I'll probably ride it out...

This is where I'm going...Oman (in the United Arab Emirates)
(I got this image from http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/best-trips-2012/oman-photos/)
My hotel says it has free wifi in all areas (yay!) so fingers crossed I'll be able to post some photos and maybe even some videos while I'm there. It also means that I'll hopefully be able to speak to my boyfriend while I'm away which'd be lovely. Even if not I aim to take lots of cool photos and video footage to show you when I get back on New Years Eve.

100 Subcriber Giveaway!!!

Hey Guys!! It's officially Christmas morning and I'm super excited because I am soooo close to having 100 Subscribers on YouTube!!! If I'm only a few away and if I make 100 before New Years day in a week's time I'm planning on doing a huge giveaway!!

(I got this image from http://www.birthdaygiftsandcelebrations.com/birthday_gifts/one_hundredth_birthday.html)

Even if I don't make it by New Years I'll still be very happy as I'm grateful for every single person who has taken the time to subscribe to me, it's so nice of people to show support. Reaching 100 before the end of the year would just give me a decent excuse to spend money I don't have on some big giveaways prizes lol! ;)

Little Bow Peep...

Dontcha just love the back of this top? I  wanted to wear something festive for Christmas Eve but not too dressy as it's not actually Christmas yet and I had some errands to run so I settled on this. It was my mother's but she gave it to me recently. 



I love tops with cut out backs and I love bows annnnd I'm loving sequins and sparkle for the holidays so this top ticks all the boxes!

Early Breakfast, Late Post...

Hello my Christmas bunnies! Late post today as I've been running errands/uploading videos to my channel. I woke up this morning to this lovely spread laid out by mother dearest. Homemade pancakes and bacon - yum! I have been eating like a pig over this holiday period and I'm proud of it - although I must say I'm a little concerned about fitting into my bikini on holiday in a few days...


Still... if I can't fit I'll just have to console myself with more food won't I (teehee!)

Shimmy Shimmy!

I got this sparkletastic bra as an early Christmas gift and I LOVE it! I've been seeing it everywhere in H&M adverts (and complaining that I want one!) and low and behold a special someone got it for me!


Although at first sight it may strike you as tacky-looking it's actually really pretty and quite subtle under a sheer chiffon blouse, you know the kind that you can sort of see through - I'll make sure to show you how I wear it with some outfit photos! It's also a 'super push up' bra which is nice as it's very flattering (wink-wink!) It sparkles iridescently in the light which makes it super festive so I'll definitely be wearing it over the holiday period - expect to see this in many outfit videos/photos!

Edit: I've now put up an Outfit of The Day video up so you can see how I wear this here!

♫ Oh Christmas Tree... Oh Christmas Tree... ❄

Haha I thought I'd come on here and share with you my pathetic little Christmas tree. It was fifteen pounds from Argos and of course it looks nothing like the picture on the box! Still it's my first tree in my own place (with my boyfriend) so I love it <3

❄ Festive Nails ❄ | Nails

Hi Guys! Do you like these festive nails I did? I'm quite proud as I'm usually an utter failure when it comes to nail art but I think that these turned out okay :). I've mentioned before that I loooove having painted nails, whatever mood I'm in it always makes me feel more polished and put together :).


I'm going to try to keep these chip-free until Boxing Day and then I'll switch to something bright and beachy for my holiday! I copied the reindeer an image on Google which is from a blog called Olivia Writes. She does such pretty nail looks, check her out! I'm off out to show off my nails for the night. I may do an outfit of the day video if I can just decide what to wear!!!....

My Everday Makeup | Makeup

Helloooo, here's a sneak peek of my everyday makeup. A lot of the names have rubbed off the products but can you guess which products there are? I'll do a full video of my makeup routine on my YouTube channel soon!




It looks like a lot but it only takes me five minutes do my makeup on a daily basis as I prefer to get every extra second of sleep that I can! I should have done the five minute makeup challenge when it was going around... Maybe I'll still do it yet!

Blast from the Past!


 The things mums make you do eh! Mine sent me these pictures this afternoon. How cute/silly were we as kids! Mum says we were always doing stuff like this together. How fun! I remember building lots of forts out of sheets and cushions in the living room and one time when my mum helped us make a line of chairs and cushions across the room and we had to hop from one to the next to get across the floor and avoid the 'crocodiles' lol. Oh to be a kid again! But I'm not a kid :(... I'm 21 and for me that means university...which means essays... two of which I have due in this Friday. So I shall get back to those and leave you with this fun image. I'll put the others up on my Facebook page so if you want to check them out click here! Goodnight! x

My Zara Leggings | YouTube

You may have seen my YouTube haul video of these Zara leggings back in Easter and I can definitely say that since then I have been wearing them non stop. I am obsessed with partially tucking the front of tops into them (apparently known as the demi-tuck) to show off the cool gold detailing without looking too preppy. 


Sneak Peek!

 I filmed an outfit of the day (ootd) video of this full look which will be up on my YouTube channel next week!

❄☃ Christmas in Cologne! ☃❄ | Travel

Hello my lovelies, or should I say Gutentag! As promised here are the pictures from my recent trip to Cologne to visit the christmas markets <3. Cologne is such a pretty city at Christmas time and it definitely lived up to our expectations. The people were super friendly, the markets were adooorable and oh-so-festive and homely and the food was amazing! It was quite hard to take pictures of all of the cool stuff in the markets as they were very busy indeed so I couldn't really stand still long enough to get great shots but  - fear not! I was able to do some filming while I was walking around so check out my Cologne vlog here if you want a better look!

Fitness Phobias! | Fitness

Hi Guys! Sorry for the long time no post but I got that job I mentioned in my last post (yayyyy!!!!) and then I had two essays due in and we went to Germany for the weekend (pictures will be up tomorrow) so it's been a busy couple of weeks. I'll post the Germany photos tomorrow so make sure you check back but for now I shall talk about the gym!

I'm soooo incredibly sore today :(. I'm trying to get past my love/hate relationship with the gym but it's not easy... I'm struggling and I've only done two gym sessions so far - one of which I didn't finish because I nearly fainted and had to leave! Today I feel like someone has trampled over my thighs while I was asleep and now I'm hobbling about like a pensioner.
