I don't see the point making new years resolutions because we all know were just going to break them like people saying this year i'm going to get fit and two months in your bigger and unhappier than you were to begin with, but there are a list of things I definitely want to do before this year is out so I thought I'd share them.

I want to travel as much as possible, there are several places I want to go and I feel like 2015 is the year to tick some of those places off my to go list. Firstly I want to revisit South Africa it is such a beautiful place I need to go back. I would LOVE to go to Hawaii as that to is an amazing state and I have been to America a few times but never to Hawaii so that is a must. Los Angeles - San Fransisco - Las Vegas are three states I want to go to preferably together as they are not that far from each other.
lastly is Singapore mostly because I want to visit the Marina Bay Sands Hotel to experience the infinity pool and that breathtaking view but also because it is such a lovely country.

I suppose I should add to this list learning to swim, that would probably help me especially considering I want to visit country because of their pool.

I love photography and would love to be a Photographer so this year I want to make an effort to go out and take more pictures and get more practice.

I want to blog a lot more and a more frequent in 2015, last year I could of blogged a lot more than I did if I was more organised so this year I have purchased a diary/planner so that I can schedule my days properly so I know which days I have free to take the time out to blog more.

I want to go on a road trip, I don't mind were it would just be fun to get a few people I like being around and drive somewhere, ever since watching the film Crossroads it has made me want to do a road trip so this year would be amazing. It would obviously have to be summer though because sitting in a car in the winter isn't as enjoyable.

I want to become a more experienced make up artist and of course that takes practice so this year I want to be able to say I have a portfolio of work strong enough to get me any job I applied for.

Lastly I want to find my dream job and I'm not actually sure what that is yet but hopefully this year I will know.

These are some of the things I want to do this year. What are your plans and aspirations for this year?

Until next time xx

I love the Victoria's Secret fragrance mists and I initially went into the store to get my favourite Coconut passion but as it was the seasonal period I know they do gift sets and I had been in the store a few weeks before and saw that they had the coconut passion miniature set which came with a 125ml fragrance mist, body lotion and body wash so I thought why not treat my self so I went back to that specific store hoping they would still have the set and just my luck they had sold out so I decided to go ahead and get the offer which was any three for £25 or five for £30. At £13 a bottle it just made sense to go for five which ended up working out as £6 per item but the hardest part for me was deciding what ones to get.

there were so many to choose from and as I am already a coconut passion fan and went in to get that I went for two bottles of the fragrance mist which is a Vanilla and Coconut scent and I am absolutely obsessed with everything vanilla but what makes me go back and purchase the Coconut Passion Fragrance mist is the mix of two scents it makes it so sweet and warm and the slight coconut scent makes it smell that much better when it's compared to other Fragrance mists that are solely vanilla.

I opted for the Coconut Passion Hydrating body lotion because it had the same scent as the Fragrance mist and I tried the tester in store and it left my skin feeling really silky and soft, I have been using this for a while now and I love it, because unlike some moisturisers the smell doesn't fade after you have rubbed it in it lasts a very long time especially if you layer it with the Fragrance mist and it is extremely hydrating and absorbs really well.

The Amber Romance Fragrance Mist hasn't always been a favourite of mine its a hit or miss, i've liked it but never enough to purchase it but when I smelt it in store this time round I decided to get it because it has quite a warm woody feel to it that I'm more into during the cold season and I've probably used this one the most since purchasing them because it's got such a nice warming feel to it.


lastly I got Secret Escape which was probably the hardest choice, I wanted a scent that was quite fresh and because the majority of them were fresh scents I was stuck and couldn't decided but ended up choosing this one because it was fresh but still sweet and its one of those scents you can wear as it starts to get warm because its so light but the guava flowers gives it a nice floral feel which I loved.

Which Victoria's Secret scents are you into at the moment?

Until next time xx

Vintage basement is one of many vintage shops in Brick Lane, but what sets them apart from the others for me is probably the price, It's the most reasonable Vintage store I know of in Brick Lane but the quality of products they sell are still amazing.
They have two floors, the full priced stock is on the the the main floor and the reduced items are downstairs on the bargain floor where everything starts from £5 and the amount of stock they have, I could of spent hours in there trying stuff on.

On my visit to Brick Lane I was looking for a long cardigan preferably black for work but I had an open mind, I looked through the knitwear section and found the most amazing grey cape style wool blend cardigan and instantly I had to have it, I wasn't putting it down I mean for starters it was probably warmer then all the knitwear I already own and secondly it was only £29.
I tried it on and I didn't want to take it off it was so cosy, its one of those cardigans you can wear on a not so chilly day or even if you are going shopping, it makes you look like you've made a lot more effort than you actually have and thats what I love about it.

I've worn it to go to Westfield and for me Westfield is one of those places that I never know what to wear because if I'm in a coat I get extremely hot and need to take it off but anything less and I end up freezing my ass of on the journey there and back but with this cardigan I was warm travelling there and back and while walking around the shopping centre I was comfortable enough that I forgot I was wearing it.

Vintage Basement Is definitely a store I will be visiting on a regular basis, they stock amazing one off items that you need in you're everyday wardrobe and they also do a customer loyalty.
Vintage basement can be found just off Brick Lane on Cheshire street and you can also find them on Facebook and Instagram so make sure you check them out.
Until next time xx
