  Water and makeup do not usually go well together, which is bad for those of us who like to go on beach holidays or enjoy swimming to keep fit! If this describes you, then it might be time to invest in some good waterproof make-up. Whether spending the day on inflatable pool floats on holiday or getting fit by swimming lengths in your local pool, many girls want to know what great waterproof makeup brands to wear. So, if you are a girl (or boy!), who loves swimming and wants to wear make-up while doing it, here is some of…

Monument Valley & The Grand Canyon #8

I’ve lost count up to what day we are on with the USA Diary posts but we are now up to some very exciting adventures. I’d say this week was my favourite in my nine weeks in America. Visiting Monument Valley, the Grand Canyon, Route 66 and Las Vegas was up there on my bucket list. The drive from New Mexico through the Navajo Nation Reserve to Monument Valley was pretty surreal. So. much. desert. everywhere. We arrived at Monument Valley Visitor Centre mid-afternoon and it was then we got a first look at the valley. It was a pretty…

From the beautiful coastline of the French Riviera to walking along the Seine in Paris. France has something for everyone and it’s only just across the channel. I’ve been lucky to visit France ten times now, although most of my trips were to Paris. However, I’ve been looking into booking some French getaways this Summer and here are a few destinations worth considering. The French Riviera Whenever I think of The French Riviera, I think of the movie Mr.Beans Holiday. Has anyone seen it?! I actually spent a week on the Côte d’Azur back in 2016 and visited Cannes, Nice,…

Halloween in Carlsbad Cavern, Roswell & Santa Fe #7

We’re now on Day 15 of my trip in the USA and that was actually Halloween. That’s just showing how far behind I am with these posts! In my previous post, I mentioned we had picked up our costumes from Walmart in Brady, Texas. To be honest, there wasn’t even that much choice so most of us opted for the onesie option. I was pretty happy with that as I got to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid and didn’t require too much getting ready in the morning. We had made a pact to wear the outfits throughout the whole…

Travelling Through Texas, Austin & San Angelo #6

Day 13 of my trip in the USA started in Houston, Texas. We had only spent the evening there and it was ever such a shame we couldn’t have explored the city properly. I think it’s certainly a place I’d quite like to re-visit and get to know a little bit more. After all, it is Beyoncé’s hometown. It was time to get back on the road as Austin was calling our name. The drive between Houston and Austin was one of the shortest on the Trek as we had arrived by lunchtime. Our first stop was a slightly random…
