Dear Diary: A Little Life Update

I feel like I just need to sit down and let my fingers dance around the keys whilst I have my first coffee of the week. I'm trying to cut down in the hope that it'll make me a bit less like Professor Quirrel in the Philosopher's Stone when he's all jumpy and jittery because Voldemort is literally living on the back of his head. Spoiler alert. I guess I just want to give you a little life update because in such a short space of time everything has changed and it feels silly not to explain it all and get my whizzing thoughts down on paper (well, down on screen). So grab yourself a chocolate finger or two and get comfy whilst I ramble and fill you all in because gal just needs to VENT.

8 Reasons you Need to Visit Austria

For the past few months, whenever I found myself trapped in one of those awkward small talk convos where people ask 'are you going away anywhere nice in the Summer?' my reply always got a bit of a strange reaction. A kind of half smile, half expression of bemusement and an 'oh that will be lovely' that was less convincing than Lucy Hale's acting in Pretty Little Liars when she held her phone to her face upside down (lolz remember that?). But I guess Austria wouldn't really be the first place that springs to mind when compiling your list of bangin summer holiday destinations for 2016, but it bloomin well should be. I can honestly say I've never fallen in love with a place like this before and, now that I'm home, I'm pining after the mountains and trees like a teenager lusts after their secret high school crush, I'm literally beyond obsessed. I miss the fresh air that makes you feel healthier just by breathing it in, I miss strolling along the Ziller river passing through town and after town and I even miss the majestic night time thunderstorms - the kind that make you feel so safe and cosy tucked up in your bed. If you get the chance, I honestly think everyone should experience the magic of the little landlocked country nestled between Germany, Switzerland, Italy anddd pretty much every other European country you've ever heard of. So here's 8 reasons you need to visit Austria.

4 Skincare Investments you Need to Make

I'm not ashamed to admit that I'd do pretty much anything if I knew it was going to benefit my skin (yes even drink green tea, now that's dedication). Although my obsession with  skincare may derive from a place of slight vanity, I truly believe that it's so important to take the time to look after your skin because you only get one face and all (and I want mine to be the glowiest, most wrinkle free face in all the nursing home in a good 65 years time lolz). So I guess for that reason, I really don't mind spending a little bit more money and investing in high quality products that I know I can rely on to give my skin what it needs to blossom and just look bloomin good. For the past few weeks I've been doing just that and treating my skin like royalty (and seriously reaping the rewards) by using four Kiehl's* products you need in your bathroom cupboard asap.

Dear Diary: My Blog Turns One

By the time this post goes live I'll be living it up in Austria most likely yodelling with goats in the hills or, if not, at least sticking my full head under the chocolate fountain in our hotel, either's fine by me. But despite my absence, I couldn't let this day go by without marking the occasion because today is the day my little blog turns 1 year old. Yes, it's been a whole year since I wrote this post proclaiming I had no idea what I was doing but was going to give a shot anyway. And, if I'm honest, a year on I still have absolutely no clue what's going on, in fact, perhaps even less of a clue than when I started. But as my first blog post states, I love to write and the fact that, one year on, there's people out there who actually like to read what I write...well isn't life just pretty darn peachy?

Dear Diary: Real Life Role Models

When I started High School as a 4 foot something 12 year old I used to look up to all of the older girls in absolute awe and marvel at how they had it all figured out as they floated down the corridors with their perfect hair and high school boyfriends in tow (until I actually reached their age and realised that, wait a minute, I still feel 12 and they probs did too). Before long, there was one girl in particular who stood out to me and she instantly became my favourite. There's no denying that she was beautiful but it was way more than that. She seemed so kind and clever and carried big folders and textbooks around with her wherever she went which just really made me feel like she had it together. For all I know she could have been the school's biggest biatch and needed so many textbooks because she kept failing everything but whenever she smiled or said hi to me I felt so cool and important because omg this is not a drill, an older girl actually acknowledged me. Maybe it was because she just felt really uncomfortable that I kept staring at her and her bloomin folders, who knows. But the point is at that time in my life she was a role model to me and not an airbrushed, unattainable one famous for doing goodness knows what (or goodness know who), but a real life 17/18 year old girl who probably had absolutely no clue of my admiration for her.
