Tumblr #2

If you read my last Tumblr blog post, you'll know that I spend a large portion of my time scrolling through my Tumblr dashboard reblogging anything that catches my eye, whether it be beauty, fashion, food, people, buildings, travel or quotes. This gives me a way to gather all of my visual inspiration in one place and work out my "aesthetic". In this post I'm going to give you a peek at the kind of things I reblog, but you can see it all in much more detail at!

Summer Nights

On a sunny day recently, my friends and I decided to drive down to Ogmore beach and spend the evening watching the sunset with a barbeque and good company. I really love getting out of the city on days like these and just appreciating the world around me, as well as the friends I am lucky to have.

Waterloo Tea in Wyndham Arcade

I can honestly say that Waterloo Tea is hands-down my all-time favourite cafĂ©. That is an extremely bold statement to make, for someone who spends far more of their life in coffee shops than they like to admit. Whether I'm at their original Pen-y-lan branch or their new place in Wyndham Arcade, whether I'm stopping in for breakfast, lunch, tea & cake or afternoon tea, they never fail to impress me with their amazing selection of food & drink  and their friendly service.

Summer High-End Beauty Wishlist

Summer High-End Wishlist

I thought it might be a nice idea to create a new regular feature on my blog, showing you all of the products I currently have my eye on to purchase. It will give you guys the opportunity to tell me whether they are worth the money if you have already tried them, but also to share with me the products on your own wishlist, which may also find their way onto mine! I have compiled a Polyvore set of my current high-end beauty wishlist, which you can explore below!

Summer Style Series: The Beach Outfit

One of my favourite parts of summer is visiting the beach and spending long relaxed days on the sand and in the sea. Although style is not top of my list of priorities at the beach (practicality and temperature are much more crucial), it doesn't mean you have to sacrifice it altogether!

Summer Style Series: The Formal Outfit

This is the second installment of my Summer Style Series, bringing together outfits for all summer occasions. As summer is typically known as "wedding season", I decided it would be silly not to include a formal outfit. I went for something quite cool and airy, but if you prefer to be a little more covered up then you could always wear a sleeved shirt or jacket and a longer skirt.

Summer Style Series: The Casual Outfit

Summer is without doubt my favourite season. As much as I love curling up in front of the fire with a steaming mug of hot chocolate in the winter, I just can't get enough of the scorching hot sun and long summer evenings with friends. Another of my favourite things about summer is the fashion, although layering is long gone and I can't wear my beloved knitwear, I love wearing floaty tops and dresses and being able to leave the house without a coat.

Finding the Perfect Gift

Gifts are one of my favourite parts of celebrations, as I really enjoy shopping for other people and picking out things I know they'll love. I get a certain kind of joy when watching someone open a present, unravelling the ribbon bow and carefully peeling back the sellotape in an attempt to preserve the beautiful wrapping paper. I get a warm fuzzy feeling inside as I watch a smile creep across their face as they look up to lock eyes with me and say "thank you".

June Favourites

I was hoping June would provide me with a well-needed break after sitting my AS levels along with loads of other busy things in May, but it has been another crazy month! I've been writing my personal statement for UCAS which has been so stressful as it reminded me how little time I have left of being a child with no responsibilities before I head off to university and adulthood. I also was successful in applying to the Hilton as an events waitress, so now I have lots and lots of long evening shifts (although I get to do proms and parties and weddings so I'm super excited!)
