Hey everyone! I apologise that I haven’t been around much lately but since starting my PhD and my own YouTube channel it’s been hard to get motivation to write this blog too! I hope to get back into the swing of things very soon. I need to review new Too Faced things and am looking into some new Asian beauty products too! But in the mean time I’ve been uploading weekly to my channel on Youtube. The reason I haven’t shared it before today was that, at the moment, it is purely a planning channel. If you’re into planner decorating and Plan With Me’s then maybe you’d enjoy subscribing to me! I make stickers for and decorate an Erin Condren Life Planner. I also have sticker hauls and a set up of my Kikki-K planner too. CLICK HERE to check it out!

Once I have a good rhythm going with my PhD work I will surely be back to making posts about all things beauty, lifestyle and travel!

A Jpop Christmas!


As much as I’m a fan of traditional English Christmas songs, I love to branch out every year to see what’s been done in my favourite music genres or other languages. If you’re after something heavier, for example, look no further than the Finnish Metal albums named Raskasta Joulua. But for this post here are my top 4 picks for having a Very Jpop Christmas this year!

Holiday Travel Destinations


Sometimes it’s the best time of year to get away. Travelling around Christmas can be an amazing experience. To see how the Holidays are celebrated outside of your own culture can be magical! Especially if you live in a warm climate or Southern Hemisphere. I love jetting off to the cold to feel that real Holiday spirit! I’ve chosen 2 destinations I’ve made myself during the season and 2 more that are definitely on my list! If you’re looking to travel with friends, as a couple or as a family, any of these options would be a perfect way to spend the Holidays!
