Work-out? That's something that, up until recently, I hadn't done in about three years. God only knows how I wasn't the size of a small country considering the amount of food I ate (and still eat). The difference? I know work out on a DAILY BASIS, hence the new gear.

I'm a extremely sentimental person. I struggle to throw away anything and want to keep everything. Don't believe me? Just before I moved, I decided to have a clear out. I wanted to throw away quite a lot, including school/college work that I obviously wouldn't be needing anymore and a box of hairbobbles, most of which had started to split. Two months on and both of those things are currently sat at the end of my bed at home. I decided the college work held too many memories (and sleepless nights) to get rid of and that it would mean saying goodbye to a massive chapter of my life. The bobbles I couldn't explain, but for some reason; I just had to keep them. Ridiculous, I know.

It's safe to say that I own a lot of nail varnish, and that's after having a clear out. I have a giant box and a big bag full of the stuff. I'm not one of those people that buys or collects things and then never uses them though. I always have both my toe and finger nails painted. I like to thing of it as a way of expressing myself or to add colour to an outfit. How about we look through my collection?

Both my make-up collection and love of make-up have grown considerably throughout the course of 2015. I feel like I'm getting more confident and, shock horror, actually quite good at it... Just don't ask me to do a cat-flick or I'll end up having an argument with the eyeliner and losing. Thanks to just how confident I'm feeling, the amount of make-up I currently have bookmarked is quite alarming, starting with these...

It's been just over a month since I moved out, left Málaga and moved to London. There's no denying that, when I was younger, I definitely didn't appreciate the beauty of Málaga. I considered it a place full of goats and olive trees, where everybody ate paella and it never rained. I was very, very wrong. Now that I'm older, I truly appreciate the architecture, the history of the buildings and the country itself, and the people. Oh, the food's not too bad either, and they don't just eat paella. They save that for a Sunday lunch. Call it their Sunday Roast, if you will. Now that I've had time away, I do actually miss the place, so here is a list of things I plan on doing as soon as I get back.

Today I'm going to be talking about some of my favourite products from one of my favourite high-end brands; Clinique. Clinique is a brand that I was introduced to at a young age. It is a brand that my Mam has used since before I was even born so it's what I too have come to know and love. Here are some of my favourite products...

I want to travel the world. It terrifies me that I might not get to see it. I want to see it all and discover new places. I want to visit places that locals deem too tacky, visit all the famous landmarks... But I also want to get lost wandering through narrow streets, visit buildings or monuments that have been abandoned and find out why. I want to visit the seven continents and as many countries as I can. I want to see what the world has to offer.

This post was originally going to be about my time in England so far but, having looked through the photos on my camera, I realised I haven't taken nearly as many photos as I would have liked/should have. I'm currently three weeks in to a three month long stay in the U.K and I've so far visiting family in Bristol, Wales, the north-east and London. I didn't take any photos in Bristol or Wales and took the first lot of photos of London yesterday, but I did take a lot in the north-east. Most of my time was spent in Darlington, with Julia and Jed, who are like my second parents. We've already decided that, when the time comes, Jed will be the one that walks me down the aisle!

As I've already shared with you my Autumn Essentials and my Autumn make-up, I thought I'd share my top 5 Autumn nail varnishes. I use nail varnish to express myself - adding a pop of colour to an otherwise monochrome outfit or a neutral colour to a bright outfit. Like clothes, I like my nail varnish to paint my mood (pun not intended) and I always have my nails panted. I'm not ashamed to admit that my collection is rather large. Due to travelling, a lot of my nail varnishes are back at home and, boy was it hard to pick out the ones to bring with me. I did it by season. I'll be away all of Autumn and most of Winter, so I knew that I wouldn't want lots of bright colours.

My skin goes through phases: it is either very oily or very dry, no inbetween. Surprisingly, during the past few warmer months, it's been very dry which is quite surprising considering the heat wave we have been suffering through. Don't get me wrong, it's great to have dry skin during 40 degree weather but it's been hard finding a moisturiser that helps my skin feel hydrated.

This time last year, I was obsessed with chunky & statement jewellery - now, I'm now obsessed with simple jewellery. Talk about going from one extreme to the other, eh? I do still love statement jewellery, I just seem to have stopped looking for it when I go into shops. That's probably down to just how expensive it is. Now that I don't have to save my pennies to buy one necklace, I've been building my collection of simple jewellery. Here are some of my favourite pieces...
