My 2017 Summer Beauty Favourites

It has been a while since my last beauty post, hasn’t it? I don’t tend to try a lot of new products so there’s not a lot of point going over my favourite items over and over again. I thought I’d do a general Summer beauty favourites to talk about the few products which have made their way into my make-up bag. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Would it even be a current beauty favourites post without including the Naked Heat Palette?! I’ve got to say, I’m a little bit in love. I got completely swept up in the hype over the…

Little Miss Sunflower with MissPap

It’s safe to say Summer is well and truly over. I’m already pretty excited about snuggling up in a big woolly jumper and a blanket but I thought I would share one of my last outfits of Summer. I’d actually picked up this MissPap maxi dress for my trip to Milan in June but I didn’t get a chance to wear it due to unexpected thunder storms! I’m not usually a massive fan of maxi dresses as they usually swamp me and I’m only a shortie but I love this one. It’s also another bargain look as the dress is…

How to Make Travel Planning Easy

When it comes to planning trips abroad, I’m literally in my element. I love researching, booking and planning itineraries for new adventures. I know a lot of people like to go with the flow but I like having a structure in my trips and knowing where and when I’m going to places. I’m currently in the middle of planning a nine week trip around America and Canada. As you can imagine, I’ve been doing a hell of a lot of organising, booking and planning. I thought I would share some of my top travel planning tips and how to make…

Rachel’s USA Trip: My New Orleans, Memphis & Nashville Wishlist

I’m very lucky to be travelling to some incredible destinations on my trip to America and Canada. It’s now less than 50 days until I fly off to the states and I thought I would do another wish list styled post for my USA trip. My other post was about places I’d love to visit in Florida, check that out here. I’ve finally booked my flights out to New York which is my first stop before heading on the Southern BLT tour with Trek America. One of the main reasons for choosing this trek was that it included Nashville, Memphis…

Flying to Barcelona with Monarch

Throughout the past couple of months, I’ve spent a lot of time flying between the UK and Barcelona. Most recently, Haydy & I  flew from Gatwick to Barcelona El-Prat Airport with Monarch. We actually went to Benicassim Music Festival and found that although Barcelona airport was 3 hours away, it was the easiest route to fly with Monarch from Gatwick and book a shuttle to the festival. If you are not familiar with Monarch, they operate from Manchester, Birmingham, Gatwick, Leeds Bradford and Luton to over 40 destinations. I’ve previously flown with them when I was a lot younger on…

Five Reasons Why You Should Visit Ibiza

Ibiza is pretty well known for the lively nightlife and insane super clubs but there is literally something for everyone on the island. When I visited Ibiza for the third time on a press trip last year, I discovered there was so much more to the island than just partying. I now can really see why people go back year after year to enjoy the sunshine on the white isle. Whether you are travelling with friends, family or children, there is so much to do and explore around the island from hidden beaches, yoga retreats, water sports and wandering around…
