How to Plan for Travelling

How to Plan for Travelling

Hi lovelies, and welcome back! Today I’ll be talking to you about how to plan for travelling. Specifically, how I like to plan for a holiday or journey. Hopefully my tips can help you, too!

At the end of July, I was in Reykjavik. I’ve never been to Iceland before, and I was really excited to visit. My boyfriend was travelling back from a competition in LA, and it was cheaper from him to fly into Iceland and then back to Edinburgh, so we thought, why don’t we turn it into a holiday? I met him there and we spent 5 days in Reykjavik, before coming back to Edinburgh together. Stay tuned for that blog post!

Things to do in Edinburgh | Popular Sights

Things to do in Edinburgh | Popular Sights

Hi friends, and welcome to my first post in my Edinburgh blog series, Things to do in Edinburgh. In particular, the most popular sights in Edinburgh to see.

I’ve lived in Edinburgh all my life and found myself having never actually explored my own city. In order to get me out more I set myself this challenge! Since I’ve also taken up blogging this year, I thought it would be great to use my exploring to help other people looking to visit!

In this post, we will be exploring the most popular tourist sights to see in Edinburgh. However, since this is the first post in the series, if there is something in particular you want some advice on, leave your questions and suggestions for the next post in the comments.

Festival Beauty Essentials | Collab with Emma

Festival Beauty Essentials | Collab with Emma

Hello lovelies, today I’m collaborating with Emma from Out of the Dark and Into the Beauty. We’ll be writing about our top festival beauty essentials – you can check out Emma’s blog post here. She’s such a lovely girl and I’m so excited to be collab-ing with her!

Firstly, and I think this is mostly everybody’s festival staple, is glitter. I feel like even though glitter is such a popular make-up choice anyway, for a glam night out or just when you want to spice up your look, its popularity explodes around the summer/fesitval season. Eyes, lips, cheeks, hair, temples – glitter can and will be found everywhere!

Why You Should Visit Ireland | Guest Post

Why You Should Visit Ireland | Guest Post

A huge, huge thank you to Beka for allowing me this opportunity of guest posting on her blog! Today I am going to give you a small taste of Ireland. No! I don’t mean a pint of Guinness, I mean a taste of Ireland’s culture, scenery, food, history and the people of this beautiful country.

Culture

Ireland is a country full of culture from our traditional music, dance and sport.

Music

Ireland is well known for its traditional Irish music and instruments such as the fiddle, and the bodhran and many musicians such as Christy Moore. Even though I’m not a huge lover of traditional music there is something inside of me that just wants to dance when it begins to play! It’s just so joyful and you honestly can’t help yourself but move that body of yours to the jig.

My Travel Bucket List

My Travel Bucket List

Hello lovelies! Today I’ll be taking you through some of the places on my travel bucket list.

I’ve been very lucky to have parents that took me away on holiday every summer to loads of different places. However I still wouldn’t say I’m “well-travelled”, but I’d like to be. Most of those holidays were your classic sitting by the pool, being shoved off to Kids Club in the hope that mum and dad would get some relaxation time for at least a few hours. (They didn’t; sorry mum, dad, I was never good at separation). A few of them, as I grew older, were more exciting. There was more exploring involved, and we even started going on snow sports holidays which was a nice change of pace.

Last summer I went inter-railing through Europe with my friend from Uni. If anyone were to ask me what my greatest moment/achievement/experience of my life was, it would be that. I found my taste for travelling when I was there, and it really was a self-finding experience but on a more chilled level than you expect. It wasn’t as if I found a whole new me, but I definitely learned a lot and improved on myself because of it.

After that experience, I now want to visit so many more countries and places. So I made my travel bucket list! It will be forever growing no doubt, this is just the start of my journey, but I’d love to share a few of the places off my list that I hope to visit soon.
