My Italian Holiday: A Photojournal

IMG_7828This summer made for a spontaneous trip to Italy, and I was not prepared for the sheer beauty that I encountered over there. The architecture, the people, the nature, the food, the gelato (and the Aperol) – were all straight out of a dream.

I stayed in Milan for a week, but also visited Venice, Burano island, and the Como lake in an attempt to make the most of my Italian getaway. To say that I was taken aback by the charm Italy holds is an understatement.  Oh, and don’t even get me started on Italian men…

So have a look at some of the photos I took while in Italian heaven and immerse yourself in the glorious scenery.

Brighton Getaway

img_9980This weekend made for a brilliant impromptu Brighton visit. I met with two friends there at 10 in the morning and we went exploring. Since it was my first time there, I was eager to see this little gem of a town, as well as the infamous Brighton Pier that makes appearances in all pretty Instagrams (hint: I was disappointed).

Summer Dresses In London Weather

IMG_5961Interesting choice of dress on a cloudy London day, you might say. And you’re right, I was probably the brightest eye-soaring sight on the tube and I ain’t sorry about it. But it doesn’t have to be mid July for you to wear that floral maxi dress either. So check out this JD Williams lil vivid number. Is it green? It is yellow? Well, it’s exactly what you want it to be.  Continue reading “Summer Dresses In London Weather”

L’Oreal 24h Matte v Bourjois Air Mat

FullSizeRender

Yep, totally making a reference to Batman v Superman in the title (which you will have to watch for yourself to see where you stand; I’m still on the fence about it) and please do tell me your opinions on it in the comments!

Anyway, this post will explore which matte foundation is better. Both drugstore, both hyped, both claiming to hold 24H – but which one does the job better?

To vegan or not to vegan?

veganIf you rolled your eyes at the title, pursed your lips or didn’t care at all, don’t bother. This post is not an attempt to convert y’all, but merely my honest experience with veganism/plant-based lifestyle.

See, vegans and vegetarians have become this hilarious meme everyone will laugh at and nobody thinks twice about it. Hell, even I sometimes still laugh. And no, I will not go into the “misunderstood life of vegans”, but mocking some people that are actually doing a good thing for the planet and glamorizing the all-knowing bacon eater has been taken a step too far. Oh and to clarify, when I introduce myself I do not give handshakes while saying “I’m vegan, nice to meet you too”.  Continue reading “To vegan or not to vegan?”

The Music Den #1

music playlist.JPGThese days I’ve been thinking about my writing and where I want to take it from here. Interestingly enough, the conclusion that I reached was that I do not know. I don’t know whether my main interest is beauty, music or film. I’m still figuring everything out, but what I do know is that this is my safe haven where I write about myself and shit that I like. So, I am hereby introducing the new series: The Music Den, where I’m talking about music I listened to that month: old and new.
