So here it is: Part 2 of my NYC photos! These are really some of my favourite views of the city- I mean how incredible are they?! I really hope you like seeing these little glimpses in to my trip.


We chose one of the best days to walk over Brooklyn Bridge as the weather was so gorgeous which made the view even more beautiful!



And of course how could I go to NYC without going up the Empire State Building?! These photos are taken from the 86th floor viewing platform, an it was honestly such an incredible experience.



where would you like to visit in NYC??

Autumn/ Winter ASOS Haul

It's fair to say that I am a dedicated ASOS shopper. Anytime I am on the lookout for some new clothes, ASOS will be my first port of call. So, naturally I made a small order recently to get some more basic pieces to wear for Sixth Form (and also casually), to fit with the transitioning seasons of Autumn to Winter. So, here is everything I got (I have popped the links down below too!) :

So...I'm back to blogging! I took a break for a little while to enjoy my time in New York City and also catch up on the huge load of schoolwork that I had been drowning in (A Levels...yikes!). I didn't want to be even more stressed and just putting up posts for the sake of it, but I am back now with this post of a small glimpse in to one part of my trip to NYC (there is more to come!).

Hello lovelies!

I just wanted to make a short post today to update you with my plans for the next couple of weeks. It is almost half term for me (which means I get a week off school-yay!), and my family and I are spending the entire time in New York City!!! So I just wanted to let you know that incase I am a bit MIA for a short while, but don't worry, there will be lots of NYC posts to come to make up for it!

Also, I would LOVE if you could all comment some places I need to visit, cute cafes (preferably plant-based), or touristy things that I need to fit in to my week there.
Thank you so much,

There is no doubt about it that I am obsessed with mandala patterns. I have so many prints, cushions and even a tapestry with them on- I just think they are so intricate and beautiful.

If you didn't already know,  a couple of months ago I made the jump to buy myself a Macbook Air, and I am in love with it! When I was browsing etsy recently, I spotted this gorgeous sleeve for my laptop I just knew that I had to buy it.

BERSHKA HAUL

Throughout this past Summer I rediscovered the brand Bershka. I had shopped here many times before because there are a lot of stores in Europeans countries, such as Spain, France and Italy that I have visited on holiday. But, for some reason I never acknowledged that there were stores in London. On one of my trips to London in Summer I took a look in one of the stores and I spotted so many pieces that I loved! And, recently I did a bit of online shopping on their site, because of the amazing prices and quality.

Here is everything I got recently:

perfectionism.

perfectionism.
Sunday, 2 October 2016

Perfectionism is a trait of mine that I both love and hate. It means that I am hard-working and self-motivated, but at the same time I end up tirelessly spending excessive amounts of time on things in order to make them my idea of 'perfect'. This idealisation is unrealistic.
Living in our current society, we are always striving to have the 'perfect' image. And yes, it is not exactly a life-threatening disease, but I really feel that it is a topic that needs more attention because it can be so incredibly destructive.

So it is coming to the end of another month, and I can't believe that 2016 is going by so fast- it literally feels to me like the beginning of Summer was just yesterday! But, this month I have loved a lot of things that I just had to share with you. So, here are my favourites for the month of September:

Ginger & Cashew Energy Balls (Deliciously Ella Recipe)

Ginger & Cashew Energy Balls (Deliciously Ella Recipe)

Energy balls are something that you will almost always see a box of in my fridge because they are the perfect quick and dense snack for on the go! I love them with a cup of tea as a pick-me-up but I also pop them in my lunch box and take some with me for a snack at school.

This particular I was really excited to try because 1) It is only made from 4 ingredients! and 2) I had tried one of Deliciously Ella's new energy balls that I picked up from Wholefoods recently, and I loved it so much that I just had to recreate it!
