So... I kind of move to Australia tomorrow. I loved my time in London so much, more so than even I expected. I enjoyed new experiences, new food, many adventures and met people who I know I will be friends with for life. I can't believe just how much I grew to love and care for them, despite having only known them all a few months or, in some cases, a few weeks! Like I said, I know we'll be friends for life and I'm so grateful to them for making my experience an unforgettable one. I'm already counting down the days until my next adventures with them all. For now though, I thought I'd share some of my favourite memories from my time in London.

Paris really is one of the photographable places in the world. Wherever you look, there is something or someone to capture, though everything is of course even more beautiful in person. You just can't quite capture the true beauty of it and I'm guessing that's because of the atmosphere around you. Even so, I still ended up taking over 3000 photos (I know) so trying to choose some to feature on my blog was very difficult indeed. In the end I chose, not the prettiest or most Instagram worthy, but those that I felt really represented my time in Paris and the moments I felt happiest. Enjoy!

My nail polish collection is a bit out of hand but that doesn't and won't stop me from buying even more. Though most of my nail polishes are from KIKO, a brand I'm looking to explore further is Essie. I don't actually own any nail polishes from Essie, which is quite surprising considering just how many others I own. I had a look online and put together a list of five that caught my eye.

It's the first monthly favourites post of the year! Like I mentioned in my 2015 Favourites posts, I really stepped out of my comfort zone beauty wise and tried new things. Not only that, but I experimented with skincare and spent what was probably a bit too much money on clothes (my wardrobe grew three sizes). January has been a month where I've rediscovered some old favourites and continued using what I loved throughout the later months of 2015, but I haven't really tried anything new. Despite this, I thought I'd share what I've been loving recently with you.

Let's start off by doing a little introduction. This post is about Amita, one of my best friends. We met on Tumblr five years ago and, what could have turned out to be a complete and utter disaster, turned into one of the best decisions I have ever made. We spoke everyday for five years; sharing secrets, goals, fears and everything in between. We became best friends, despite not even having ever met. After my graduation, I had planned on moving to London before moving on to Australia. My accommodation fell through at the last minute and Amita immediately said I could move in with her.

Fashion is a big love of mine and something that I definitely don't feature enough of on my blog, especially considering just how much I talk and think about it in everyday life (fact: if you see me looking deep in thought, I'm probably planning future outfits). I've decided that I want to include more personal posts on my blog and that starts with sharing my outfits of the day. I'm thinking I'll do this every couple of weeks so that it doesn't get too boring. There's nothing I love more than seeing OOTD posts on Instagram and people's blogs, so hopefully you'll enjoy mine too!

Whenever Ariadna and I plan on meeting up for a quick coffee, we end up staying out for the entire day and most of the night. I love being with people that make me forget to look at my phone and who conversation just flows with, and she is definitely one of those people. Even when I was at work all day everyday and she was at university from 9am until 6pm, we still managed to meet up and go out. Throughout December, most of our adventures consisted in accidentally bumping into celebrities, going to designer shops and food markets, and also doing anything Christmassy! One of our Christmas days out involved a trip to Winter Wonderland. Here are some photos from that day...

Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world. I'm lucky enough to have been able to visit a few times now and also have plans to go back some time this year. No matter where I go, my outfit game always seems to get stepped up. This is probably because most of my time at home is spent in my work uniform or in my pyjamas, so I suppose going away is basically an excuse to actually wear proper clothes. Here are some photos of one of the outfits on my most recent trip to Paris!

Does anyone elses' Grandmotherscut out articles of newpapers or magazines, store them in envelopes and send them to you by post every couple of weeks? Mine has done it for the past few years and has done the same for my Mam ever since she moved out all those years ago. Now that I live just forty minutes away, she's started giving me them to me in person, which amuses me even more. It makes me happy to see that she does take an interest in my life and what interests me, meaning all the articles are beauty and fashion related. While having a flick through of some of them, I discovered an article on Pernille Teisbaek. I'd never heard of her before, but I'm now obsessed with her style.

I happen to be a Sephora member, which means they regularly update me on the latest trends, releases, discounts and deals. On my birthday, I received an email from Sephora saying that, as I was a member, they were going to send me a birthday present and three samples of my choice (out of a selected range). Sounds like a scam, I know - but it wasn't. The only thing I had to do was to buy anything from the website. They had a great amount of deals on at the time (and still do!).
