Hello! I hope everyone had a lovely summer! I can’t believe that a) it’s September already and b) I haven’t written a post since June!
It has just been such a busy and fun-packed summer that I haven’t had any time to write! I have been keeping my Instagram going of course, which you can see here if you’re not already following me!
I won’t bore you with every detail of what I got up to during the summer but basically my summer consisted of: job interviews, finishing my CELTA course, beach days, hitting the gym, my mum and brothers visiting me in Barcelona from New Zealand, a fortnight back home in Glasgow, catching up with family and friends, a family wedding, then back to Barcelona, weekends in the countryside, neighbourhood festivals, a week in Segur de Calafell, then, preparations for my new job which I start on Monday!
During all that, I also celebrated my birthday, which was tough to enjoy as it was the day after the horrific terrorist attack at Las Ramblas in Barcelona. However, I decided to join everyone else in Barcelona and continue my day as normal without fear, yet the victims and everyone affected were at the back of my mind the whole day.
Overall, I was pretty busy but I enjoyed every minute of it and seeing my mum and brothers after just over a year was definitely a highlight, as well as showing them around my new hometown!
So, as we enter September I am excited to start my first teaching job (eek!) and I’ll definitely be updating my blog more as I get settled into work.
I hope everyone had a lovely summer and thank you so much for reading my rambling post!

Here are a few of my top picks from MAD BEAUTY… Continue reading
As someone with long, thick and naturally curly hair, washing my hair is such a chore. Well, it’s more the drying and styling my hair that I hate. It can take well up to an hour to towel dry, roughly dry, blow-dry then straighten, as well as adding product, to my hair. So when I heard about the Aquis Luxe Hair Turban*, a towel that absorbs moisture, leaves hair frizz-free and cuts drying time, I was interested to see how it worked, and if it would do anything to my unruly mane…
Every now and then it’s essential to have a good pamper sesh. For me, essentials include; a hot bubble bath, glass of wine, chilled eye pads and of course, a face mask. Continue reading
Fake tan lovers, we have all been there. It’s Fake Tan Thursday and you’re applying your favourite tan, bursting with excitement to be a bronzed goddess for the weekend.
When we found a flat in Barcelona, there was one thing that drew me to it. The sunny patio? The huge wardrobes? Those two were an added bonus but for me the main thing that excited me the most was… It has a bath! Continue reading
I was having a browse in one of my favourite make up stores, KIKO, at the weekend looking at their new products. I came across their range of Kiss Balm’s and with Valentine’s day coming up, I thought it would be perfect to review! I chose Tutti Frutti (03), a pinky-coral shade. Here is what I thought of it… Continue reading
