Travel Essentials





Hey huns!
As I mentioned in my update video, I am going away for a long weekend to England! I am super excited because this time, two of my best friends are coming along also! 

I absolutely LOVE travelling - there's just something so exciting about jumping on a plane or going for huge car journeys to Italy (sadly, I haven't been on a huge car journey like that for four years).

I have been looking forward to this ever since we had planned it which was a few months ago. 

Because I go on planes and travel a good bit, I thought I would share my travelling essentials!



Books & Magazines
This is an absolute must for me. You never know, your flight might be delayed, or your phone or iPod may die. Or if you're like me you might just want to read.






Clear Plastic Bag with necessary liquids
Obviously a must, considering it's the law to put your liquids in a clear plastic bag for flying on a plane. Also, making sure that your liquids are under 100ml. This is the makeup that I am taking, such as my CC cream, lipstick and my essential, Carmex.


Camera
Yeah, phone cameras can be good quality, but a lot of phones lose battery quickly, and you do not want to be stuck in a foreign place with a dead phone. Also, there's more space on a digital or DSLR camera, so you can snap and video 'til your hearts content!


Purse & Money
Obviously, you'll need money! I adore this purse from Cath Kidston because it has so many pockets and places to put cards.


Hairbrush
My hair gets SUPER knotty when it comes in contact with the elements, so this seriously is a must for me.


Glasses
I don't know about you, but my eyesight is awful. I take these glasses absolutely everywhere I go, because I never know when I'm going to need them! The box is also terribly distorted due to being crushed by the weight of my school books.



CD's
I find that music always makes a car journey better. I'm bringing CD's like Lorde and a mix CD for the journey to the airport.


Bits and Bobs
Tissues, chewing gum, hair grips and a hair bobble.
Boring, I know.


And of course you will need a bag to put everything into! I love this bag from Penneys/Primark, because although it looks quite small on the exterior, it has so much room on the inside! Also, it has a cross body strap which seriously saves my shoulder and arms from getting sore.

So those are my travel essentials! I hope you enjoyed this post, and I shall see you in my next video or blog post.
Bye!


P.S I'm obsessed with this song and so should you.

Long time no... blog?

Hey huns!
SO YES!

I have been awfully absent for i don't know how long. It's terrible. (I blame the junior cert)

I finished the junior cert (state exams) last Wednesday, and then came home to subsequently lie on the couch, eat and binge watch four episodes of Teen Wolf (my new obsession).

Then, on Thursday, I went to the hairdressers and spent a few hours getting my hair ombr├ęd (if that's even how you would phrase it), which I am super happy about because it's no longer strange looking!
Later that evening, I went out with friends to celebrate our freedom from school and the new born liberty of our social lives.

Yesterday, I made it my ultimate goal to finish season 3B of Teen Wolf, which I achieved! I also managed to do all my chores and play Just Dance 4 which was a Christmas present, on the Wii. I also managed to mortify myself when the post man saw me dancing (I hid in a small room along with my shame) and sang as loud and as embarrassingly possible just to realise all the windows were open. Fab. 

And today was supposed to be a day of tidying my room and editing, but that didn't happen either!
(I opted for the more fun option of playing Mario Kart and Smash Bros Brawl with my brother on the Wii)

So that is my summer so far! I can't wait to get back into blogging and YouTube once again!
My upload and blogging days from now on will be Monday and Thursday me thinks :)
See you in my next video or blogpost!
