My Thoughts on Having Shorter Hair

My hair has become a bit of a conversation starter lately. To me, it comes as a shock since I don't make a huge effort with it or anything. However, I do feel like I've found my signature hairstyle since cutting it shorter and perhaps that's why it's the first thing people notice, especially when they haven't seen me for a while. As short hair seems to be a bit of a thing at the moment (just search 'long bob' Pinterest for evidence) I thought I'd write about my experience with it. 

Mermaid-ing Around in London

When you come across a giant shell at the V&A museum you can't help thinking it would be the perfect photo opportunity. You know the drill, pretending to be a mermaid for an Instagram photo and the like. I thought I would share the photos from my day here too as I had a fab time catching up with a couple of my friends from uni after 2 months apart. 

By Terry Ombre Blackstar Review

Picture this: I am sat outside Sephora in Paris waiting patiently for it to open, having never visited before. Ok, perhaps not so patiently when the doors didn't open at exactly 10am. First through the doors, I didn't hesitate to pick up a basket and instantly became enthralled by the store and all it's make-up glory. I've longed to visit Sephora for a while now but never quite anticipated it to be that good. Though it's easy to get carried away, I thoroughly enjoyed the shopping experience which lacked all of the pushy and often intimidating sales assistants commonly found on beauty counters in the UK, instead allowing you to access individual counters and try/pick up products on your own without any assistance. 

After filling my basket with Sephora own-brands items I found myself at the By Terry counter. I had heard of the Ombre Blackstar eyeshadow sticks before (they are available in the UK and highly popular) but was never tempted to purchase mainly due to the hefty price tag. After swatching multiple colours on my hand, though, I was instantly sold and had to treat myself.

Paris Photo Diary // June 2016

Those who read my last post or follow me on social media will know I recently went to Paris as part of my internship with Temperley. It was my first time visiting the city and we stayed for 7 nights in the 2nd arrondissement. I was working long hours everyday but I managed to squeeze in some sightseeing during the evenings - I wasn't going to waste any spare time I had. It's difficult to regain energy after a day of working but a quick outfit change is all it took for me to feel ready to take on the evenings. It's easy enough to get past the afternoon crash that people often experience when you have a beautiful city at your feet to explore. 

I didn't plan for the trip as I didn't know how much free time I would have but there was certain sights I wanted to see and places I wanted to go. I still have a long list to check off for future visits - I mean, I didn't even go down the Champs-Élysées and I'm a massive shopper. Because of this, I didn't want to do your typical 'travel guide' post but instead more of a photo diary showing you snippets of what I got up to when I was there to provide some inspiration.
