TRAVEL | THROWBACK THAILAND

 Phi Phi Island
A few months back, me and some of my friends took a trip to Thailand. We visited Bangkok and Phuket, it was an amazing experience we wanted a getaway where we could soak up some sun, enjoy some delicious fresh seafood and just unwind a little. I know its a few months late but I thought i would share my pictures. Be warned there are a lot of pictures, and they are random.



 We didn't do the whole backpacker thing, we stay in hotels instead. we managed to stay 3 nights in Bangkok and 3 nights in Phuket. We did the temple and night life in Bangkok and a chilled out island hopping in Phuket.

 Floral Kitty (lol) somewhere in Bangkok

 We got some massages, omg1 it was bliss!

Lifestyle | 5 Ways I Stay Happy


Hi all, today's post is about how I stay a happy. I always try to stay a happy person, having a positive outlook in all the thing I do. There are 5 main steps i follow to remain positive and happy. I am not an expert or a professional by any means, but these steps work for me.

1. Choose to be happy
The first step is that I want to be happy. Happiness is a state of mind and a choice, whenever I am in any difficult solution, I try not to worry so much and I always think positive. I have trained my mind to think the way.

2. Stop comparing yourself to others.
I know that due to social media it is hard not to compare your life to other people. especially when every picture is so perfect, and well crafted. I just have to keep reminding myself I don't have to keep up with the Kardashian literally. 

3. Keep challenging yourself 
A way i challenge myself is doing what i love, I get so lost in my work that i forget myself and everything else. Doing any thing you love, be it your job, blogging, a creative outlet, sports, cooking whatever it is putting you time and energy into it will make you happier.
   
4. Someone loves me
 I never forget that someone loves me, be it my family and friends. It is something to always keep in mind, it is so easy to feel like you are all alone.

5. Give back and be grateful
Connecting with people and being a part of something larger than myself is a way i stay happy. Volunteering at you local charity, in your community or church, knowing that you are helping others not only will you have made someone else happy, you'll have made yourself happy too.

I hope this post cheers you all up!

ESTY WALL PRINT UNDER £20


So from my post last week i mentioned that i was redecorating my apartment. I am adding a few things to brighten up my apartment. I found the wall art or print are the easiest way to go.
I found a lot on Esty, there was a lot to choose from, and i decided to share some of my favorite Esty shops for wall prints.

The prices very on these, some shop only offer the prints and you will have to buy your frame, you can find some cheap frames at wilkos or ikea. I did find a store that provide the print and frame are included and free UK delivery (shop 1).

Have you ever bought a wall print from Esty?

July Favourites |


Last month i had all beauty favourites and i am still loving them, this month i had a couple of new thing i tried and loves to i will be sharing that with you all.



First thing is the body shop seaweed ionic clay mask, i love this mask as a cleansing mask and it is very easy to use. my face feels so clean when i use it. I only use it twice a week because i use face scrubs as well during the week.




One thing i tried this month and loved was the NYX matte lipstick and Gosh lip pencil in simply red. i have be using this combo alot this month.



I got this argan oil hair serum. it is a light weight hair serum perfect for extension without leaving it greasy. It was inexpensive as well so it didn't break the banks.


And lastly this month i have a fashion item, a black Chelsea boot from Missguided. 

what have you been loving lately?
