The party season is almost upon us which gives us an excuse to dress up and look our best. Of course no look is complete without the perfect tan so today I thought I’d give you a tan option in which I have really been loving recently.
So recently i was contacted by Your Smile Direct and i couldnt be happier to be teaming up with them for the next while. Keeping my teeth in good condition is always a priority of mine. When i was 12 i had braces as my teeth were so bad so since getting them off 12 years ago ive always worn my retainer and tried to keep them looking their best. Obviously alot can change over time and especially in 12 years so of course my teeth are not as straight as they used to be. Now dont get me wrong i love my teeth and there really is nothing wrong with them bit they have slightly moved so i want to get them back in shape and as straight as they can be.
Ive just completed step one which is simple and you just order your easy-to-do Home Smile Kit and take your dental impressions from the comfort of your own home. Once you have completed the moulds using only one set of moulds firstly (incase you have to retake save the second) you take a photo of them and send them to your smile checker via email. Once the Smile Checker has given you the go ahead you can send on your moulds to the clinic. I have just sent off my moulds so i am waiting on my algniers to arrive which i cant wait for. I think the normal process is to change your algniers every 2 weeks for 20 weeks and by the end youll have a perfect smile.
I will be posting my journey on my instagram and keeping you up to date with my process. You can follow me on my instagram to keep up to date and see how i get on with my smile journey FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM HERE
Summer may be gone but that doesn't mean that our travels are over for another year. If you’re going on holiday this autumn, you’re probably starting to think about what you should bring with you. Sometimes it can be hard to pack for a trip, especially when packing a carry-on bag as you never know what you might need. That is why I have put together a handy list of some essentials that you should bring in your hand luggage for your next trip away.
Backpack or carry-on case?
I always put my camera equipment and computer stuff in my carry-on. My go-to bag for every trip is a backpack that I can fit everything into. I normally just use a school bag or a carry-on case depending on where I'm heading to. I pack my equipment neatly in between some soft objects such as towels to ensure nothing breaks or gets damaged on the journey.
Clear resealable bags for liquids
I use clear resealable pouches for any liquids that I need to bring in my carry-on. I normally pick these up in my local shop or at the airport. I like to pack them at the top of my carry-on case so that they are easily assessable when I reach security.
This is probably my favourite thing about packing because who doesn't love snacks? I usually pack granola bars, almonds or little packs of peanut butter plus an apple or banana.
However, no matter where I'm going I will always pack some chocolate. Recently on my travels, I like to pack a Cadburys 30pc less sugar bar. It tastes delicious and is a great alternative if you’re trying to lower your sugar intake.
Earlier this year I decided to cut back on my sugar intake but I found it hard especially when travelling and I couldn’t give up my beloved chocolate! With options like this now available on the market, I find it a lot easier.
I always like to pack some sleep essentials so I can recharge while travelling. Some airlines no longer offer pillows and blankets to economy passengers so it’s always best to be prepared!
I always like to take a travel pillow with me wherever I go. I normally opt for the memory foam ones for extra comfort.
Eye masks are essential to block out the light on long trips.
If you want to block out all noise and get a good sleep, earplugs always come in handy.
I always like to wear comfortable runners when travelling and I like to bring fluffy socks and slippers with me too for extra comfort.
Finding the perfect travel jumper is hard. I’ve found that a long cardigan is perfect for long journeys. You can wear it as a sweater, lay it over you like a blanket, or bundle it up around your neck like a scarf.
On a more serious note, you should always travel with compression socks, especially for long haul flights.
I highly recommend getting a reusable water bottle for your travels. Many airports now have water filling stations after security and the flight attendants will always fill up your bottle if you ask.
While it may mean extra trips to the lavatory, drinking lots of water before and during your flight can help with jet lag and fatigue.
Tired eyes can be a side effect of travelling. I recommend bringing an eye cream to use before and during your flight, boat trip or car journey. This will help combat dark circles and puffiness.
A good tinted moisturiser has the coverage benefits of a foundation and the moisturising qualities of face lotion so it’s definitely a must for travelling.
Chargers and headphones
Do not forget to bring your chargers with you. Don’t put them in your checked luggage if you’re on a flight. Likewise, don’t put them in a suitcase that’s in the overhead compartment. Carry them with you at all times if possible.
Don’t forget the obvious
Remember to keep all your important documents together in a passport holder or wallet. Normally these document holders can carry all your important information plus multiple credit cards. Sometimes you can even stow your phone in the front pocket.
Try Cadbury Dairy Milk with 30pc less sugar today. It’s the perfect treat for travelling.
I think Daniel Wellington has to be one of my favourite Jewelry brands ever. I am not one for wearing watches or rings etc on a daily basis but DW always changes my mind on this.
There are so many pieces in many different collections to choose from I honestly couldn’t pick a favourite. As I have worked with DW before I decided to include some of my go to pieces that I always wear weather it’s for a night out or just going to grab a coffee with friends.
A TIMELESS CLASSIC
The Petite Melrose features an eggshell white dial and an undeniably elegant rose gold mesh strap (we all know how much I love rose gold) This watch elevates your everyday outfit, your mood and your spirit. I love this piece for everyday wear as it’s light on the wrist, stylish and makes me feel good when I’m wearing it. This is a 28mm watch as I have very small wrists so this fits perfectly and isn’t too chunky. There is a range of sizes to choose from The prices for this watch starts at
€129 for a 28mm
€159 for a 32mm
€169 for a 36mm
CLASSIC DESIGN MEETS MODERN MINIMALISM
The Petite Bondi, with its fresh white leather strap and an eggshell white dial, signals both simplicity and grace. This ultra-thin watch rests delicately on the arm and highlights that extra bit of fresh energy in your style. (Available in rose gold or silver.) Again I went for the rose gold and I love this watch especially on holidays or during the spring/summer it’s a perfect piece to style with any outfit. This is a 28mm watch. Prices for this watch start from
€119 for a 28mm
€149 for a 32mm
With classic features such as the slim case, details in rose gold or silver, and the heritage NATO strap in midnight blue, Classic Bayswater is an effortless day-to-evening timepiece. I love this watch especially the strap as it’s so light and again stylish. I like to wear this watch when going about my daily routine such as work or a brunch date. This is a 36mm watch. Prices for this range start from
€139 for a 36mm
