My Bucket List | Tag.

The lovely Juliet has tagged me to do this Bucket List tag and considering how much I love my lists, I couldn’t resist. Also, it’s been a while since I’ve even thought about my bucket list, so this was a good reminder. So, thank you Juliet for tagging me and you can check out Juliet’s blog and her bucket list here.

Disney Haul.

Welcome to Day Six of Disney Week!

Unfortunately, I am now home from Disneyland Paris, but that doesn’t mean the magic is over. I have bought quite a few items, though I did somehow resist the temptation to buy more! I am quite tight with money, so I did only buy things I knew I would use and enjoy which I suppose is how I did resist that temptation.

So, what did I buy?

What’s in My Travel Makeup Bag?


Welcome to Day Two of Disney Week! Today I thought I would share with you all the makeup products I am taking with me to Disneyland Paris.

I don’t know about you, but I am someone who likes taking my makeup with me on the plane. I mean, it’s fragile; last thing I want is a powder to shatter or a broken/leaking bottle of foundation! Not to mention the fact that some of the products I own are expensive. Although, thinking about it, I’m not actually taking much high end makeup with me on this holiday.

September Book Haul.

“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” – Lemony Snicket.

In total this month I have bought/received a total of seven books. After buying only four books last month (one of which was for a friend), my stack of books to read on my bedside table isn’t suffering (nor my purse). However, it felt strange not having lots of newly purchased books. Also, I haven’t been out very much this month; I don’t think I’ve bought a single one of these books in person, the majority were ordered online.

Review: Happyslapped by a Jellyfish by Karl Pilkington.

Karl Pilkington“That’s the problem with problems, you sort one out and it makes another.” – Karl Pilkington.

Look at me, broadening my horizons again with this non-fiction book full of humour, diary extracts, poems and cartoons revolving around Pilkington’s travels around the world. My best friend and her mum bought me this book because they knew I enjoyed watching An Idiot Abroad and The Moaning of Life, so I decided to bump it up in my reading list.

My Bucket List.

“Bucket list: a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.”

I believe that a bucket list is never complete because as you go through life you are always finding new experiences which you want to experience for yourself. Furthermore, over time your choices change. When I was younger I would never have considered going to London to see a show, but now I want to see them all. When I was younger, I didn’t know what Holi, the festival of colour and a major festival in India, was, but guess what, it’s on my bucket list. This doesn’t mean that a bucket list can never be completed, but it can always be added to and I know that over the years I shall definitely be adding to my bucket list, but hopefully crossing lots off too.

“Veni, vidi, vici.” (I came, I saw, I conquered.) – Gaius Julius Caesar.

Anyone who has been following my blog recently will know that this time last week I was in Rome with my dad. In fact, we were rather lucky as our plane touched down half an hour earlier than expected. We were then even luckier when our suitcases were the first to be released at baggage claim, something which has never happened to us before. From the airport we found our way to our hotel (I didn’t take any photos because it was just your average hotel and it is definitely the last thing you are going to focus on if you’re going to Rome).
