Hello! How are you doing today? Recently I've been purchasing more makeup than usual, probably because I've been spending a lot of time on Instagram and following more beauty accounts. they do really leave an influence on you! Today I'm going to show you all the products I've bought and giving my honest review on them.

I don't know about you, but I've been loving yellow lately. Something about it just makes me feel happy. While browsing on Zaful, I noticed a lot of yellow items of clothes and accessories that I loved and decided to share them with you.

Previously, I have both bought from and collaborated with Zaful and I've always had a positive experience. All the items they have available are both on trend and inexpensive (something I'm a fan of). They also continuously add new arrivals so there's always something new to shop.

The weather here in Malta just went from dull and windy to super hot and sunny in a week so I'm starting to take out my summer clothes. But this also makes me want to buy some new things so I rounded up some which I would like to add to my wardrobe. All the items below are perfect for the Spring and Summer months and I hope you like them as much as I do. How cute are the polka dot dress and the pineapple bag tho?

For the past few years I have mostly worn matte lip products but I've been noticing the comeback of  the lip gloss. At first I was unsure but as time went by I became more interested in them. Luckily I didn't have to wait too long as I was given the opportunity to try out the new 3INA Lip Vinyl.

How is everybody doing? I haven't sat down and wrote whatever came to my mind in a while. In fact, in the last catch up I was still excited about starting university and autumn had just started. So it's about time I did another update. (I also didn't want to just plonk a few photos of myself so decided to take this as an opportunity to write a bit of a longer post)

I took quite a few breaks from blogging in the last months, as you can probably tell from the lack of activity on here. I was just not feeling like myself and decided it would be better to step away for a while than upload crappy content. At one point I thought that I would just stop as I felt like this blogging thing wasn't made for me. But during the Easter holidays I found myself having more time than usual and I thought I would give this another try. Since then I have been uploading constantly and I'm having so much fun doing it. I had forgotten how much I actually enjoyed taking photos and writing!

This time I have taken a bit of a different stance to blogging as I have been focusing more on my social media, mainly Instagram and Facebook, which I update nearly everyday. My accounts managed to reach 2000 and 900 followers respectively in the last weeks so it gave me a bit of a positive boost and motivation to keep going! Thank you again and if you don't follow yet, feel free to do so. 

This does not mean that I'm abandoning my blog at all. Since the start of this blog nearly 4 (!!) years ago, it has gone through many ups and downs but I could never have the heart to just stop! I have decided to stick to one blog post per week so I can have time to create a proper post and still have time for other things in my life.

Another thing that I decided to update was the newsletter services. The previous service was quite old looking to I decided to transfer it over to Mail chimp which looks much nicer. Click here, if you would like to receive a weekly newsletter of my latest content right in your inbox.

Today's outfit consists of these mom jeans I've been loving. Never thought that I would like anything apart from skinnies but these are so comfortable! The shirt looks really nice with these jeans and gives a bit of a professional vibe to the somewhat casual look. Since the weather has warmed up a bit I can now take out my loafers again. Although I do need a new pair because these ones look a bit battered. I finished the look with some accessories that I impulse purchased lately. But hey, they look cute.  I also like to think that these sunglasses make me look cooler than I actually am (probably not).

Spring Catch Up

Monday, 16 April 2018

Hope everyone is having a great Sunday and had a great Easter break last week! In today's post, I'm sharing some of my recent favourite products. This is similar to the monthly favourites that I used to do but it's now too late in the month for that, hence the different name. 

Loving Lately

Sunday, 8 April 2018

As promised, although a month late, here is my London photo diary! I have already shared a London Weekend Guide which seems to have gone down quite well, so feel free to check it out if you haven't already. 

In case you didn't know, my mum and I went for a short weekend break to London at the end of February. In this post, I'm going to share what we did and the photos I took. Maybe this will give you some ideas on what to do if you visit London (which  I highly suggest doing).

Day 1

After arriving at the hotel at midday, my mum and I decided to go for a walk around the area and grab some lunch. Our hotel gave us a complimentary meal at one of its restaurants and we chose Bloom & Willow. Everything was delicious and I loved the cosy atmosphere.


Afterwards, we headed to St. Paul's Cathedral. We used Get Your Guide to get a discount on our tickets and I can't recommend it enough. St Paul's cathedral was definitely the highlight of the holiday. Unfortunately, you can't take photos inside but I still managed to take a lot from the top and around it. If we were allowed to take photos inside, I could have dedicated a whole post to it. It's breathtaking both inside and outside! Also, the stairs to the dome may seem a bit intimidating but they are totally worth it.

I spied a Topshop from the dome, so we headed out to find it when we were done from seeing the cathedral. After finding (and purchasing) from Topshop we headed to the Millennium bridge and walked to the other side. It was absolutely freezing on the bridge and I don't think that I've ever felt that cold!

Straight after buying a coffee to warm up, we took the bus to Trafalgar square and wandered around for a bit before The Phantom of the Opera started. I loved this musical and if you ever get the chance to see it definitely do!

Day 2

We first headed to Hyde Park which was lovely to walk in during the morning. After passing by Buckingham Palace (because it's a must!), we went strolling in St James' Park. 

Next up was Westminster Abbey. We also bought our entrance tickets from Get Your Guide for a discount on the price. Westminster is beautiful, especially the inner altar area and has such a huge ground area. 

After seeing all of Westminster, we decided to go for a walk along the river bank. This wasn't the best idea as we were already tired but we did manage to see a lot of sights. 

We then headed to Covent Garden which was such a lovely place. It was Saturday so it was a bit too busy but there was a lot going on. The pho I had at Pho was the best thing to warm us as it was so cold!

By this point, we should have headed back to the hotel to have a rest but instead we went to Kensington. This was a bit of a mistake as we were a bit too tired to enjoy the rest of the evening! We went to the Victoria & Albert Museum, passed by the Royal Abert Hall and even managed to walk by Kensington Palace at sunset.

Day 3

This was our last day in London but we were determined to do everything we still had on our list. We first headed to the British Museum which is free entry. The building is so beautiful. I love the interior circular courtyard with the skylights and since it was sunny the room was filled with sunlight.

No trip to London is complete without a visit to Oxford Street! Since we didn't have that much time we only went to Primark but as you can see from the photo below, we did do quite a bit of damage!

Since we still had some time to kill, we got some lunch at Wasabi next to Primark and then walked through Leicester Square, went into M&M World and ended up in Picadilly Circus.

This was the end of our short break and we headed back to the Hotel to collect our suitcases and headed to the airport to catch our flight.

I hope that you enjoyed this post as much as I did writing it! These types of posts are my favourites because they are filled with memories and always look back on them.

Where are your favourite places in London?
