My Style Edit: Dressing For The Races

One of my favourite things to do every year is going to The Races. I absolutely love dressing up and making a day out of it. York is my nearest Racecourse and I’ve been going most years since I was about 10. Even when I was younger, what I wore to the races was super important to me. I’ve posted a few #Throwback images on Twitter from various outfits worn to the races! Thank me later! If you’re attending Royal Ascot there will usually be a dress code. For example; this year women were required to wear dresses with straps…

Exploring Aberdeenshire on the North East 250 Route

Last week, I spent a couple of days in Aberdeenshire. To tell you the truth, I’d never really given it much thought to visiting Aberdeenshire as I wasn’t even really sure what was there. Turns out Aberdeenshire has the most beautiful scenic coastlines, over 260 castles including Her Majesty’s royal estate of Balmoral and potentially the best fish and chips I’ve ever had. And that’s coming from someone who lives at the seaside! I got to experience a lot in just under three days whilst touring the North East 250 circular route with Visit Aberdeenshire. So what can you see…

Creating a Colorland Travel Photo Book + Discount

You can only imagine how many photos I took whilst in the USA and Canada for nine weeks. It was such an incredible once in a lifetime trip where I saw some breathtaking sights such as The Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park. Obviously, I captured them all on my camera and have been documenting it all in my travel diary posts (which are still ongoing). Overall, I took over 20,000 photos, how insane is that?! When Colorland got in touch with me to work together, I knew this would be great opportunity to do something with some of my…

Learning A New Language For Your Next Adventure

It’s so easy to travel as a native English speaker that sometimes we forget there are other languages besides our own. Almost any country we choose to visit will have at least some trace of English speakers in the airports, bus stations and capital cities we stop in. It’s unimaginable, then, what non-native English speakers have to do to prepare to go overseas.   Maybe you can actually relate though more than you think. Just in the way that those non-native English speakers learn a bit of English, you, too, can take classes wherever you are with language course providers like…

Three Face Products I’m Currently Loving

When it comes to applying make-up the base, in my opinion, is the most important. I’m always hunting down for a good primer, foundation and concealer. The three face products that I’m currently using and loving at the moment are all new additions to my makeup collection. I’ve been testing them out of the last month or so and I’ve been super impressed. L’Oreal Infaillible Anti-Redness Primer First up, is the L’oreal Infaillible Anti-Redness Primer* which is actually a green product. I do have quite red skin so this product is pretty amazing so counteract this. The green dulls down the…

15 Free Places To Visit in Yorkshire This Summer

As we’re getting into Summer, it’s time to start planning a few days out. If there’s a few of you in the family, it can really add up and become and expensive day out. I’ve teamed up with Cash Lady who have got a new consumer credit index tool to help with short term credit solutions to put together 15 free days out in and around Yorkshire. These suggestions could really help save a few pennies throughout Summer. (Image Source) Starting with the National Railway Museum in York. One of the county’s favourite museums housing some iconic trains and it’s completly…
