TRAVEL // Ohau, Hawaii

Saturday, 28 February 2015

Hello there!
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you'd know that last week I went to Hawaii. I have never had a 'Reading Week' before and took full advantage of the fact by booking a trip with a few friends. Originally when I found out I had a reading week I was thinking about booking a trip a little closer to home - maybe LA or San Fran. Instead we impulse booked a trip to Hawaii. I had so much prep to do before I left, four mid-terms to revise for (which are now thankfully over! Just one more take-home mid term left, a 3,000 word paper, two lab reports and a couple of lab preps this week!)

Anyway, I thought I'd share a few photos I took during my week away. We were staying in a house just 2 minutes (if that) from the beach which was empty about 90% of the time. Having an entire beach to yourself is the dream right? It was beautiful and wonderfully relaxing and fantastic I wish I could be back on the beach right now.

LIFESTYLE // Pre-Hawaii Haul

Monday, 9 February 2015

Hello there!
This time next week I'll be in Hawaii. How crazy is that?!

It's a lovely long weekend in Canada at the moment because of Family Day. I don't know who came up with that but it is just lovely and I took full advantage by heading to Metropolis at Metrotown this weekend. It is my new favourite place to shop with H&M, Forever 21, American Eagle (and Aerie most importantly!) and I had such a fantastic day. I may have gone a little nuts with my pre-Hawaii shopping and my bank balance is definitely feeling it. However, I got some really lovely bits I cannot wait to use!

BEAUTY // Ciate Mini Mani Manor

Friday, 6 February 2015

Hello there!
This has been a very long time coming (like 2 months!) but I was very fortunate to get the Ciate Mini Mani Manor for Christmas this year. Mother and I were in our local TK Maxx and I saw this beauty reduced to just £18 and I couldn't pick it up quick enough! Sure, I didn't get to open one a day but I did get a lot of Ciate polish for £18 so I'm not complaining!
