You’ll probably laugh at this post! While everyone is busy decking the halls and wrapping the presents, today I am boarding a plane to head to India for Christmas! I just felt like doing something different this year so me and friend Debs are jetting off for the Christmas season. It also means I get to tick another thing off my bucket list! I’ll be back before new years though as I plan on getting some last minute Christmas buzz in and my family are saving my Christmas presents till then, yay. I also just wanted to show you what I’m bringing with me make-up and skincare wise, if you fancy a bit of a nosy!
The pit of my week last week was definitely having my almost brand new iphone stolen on Friday night while the peak for sure was the September Beauty Blog Challenge wrap up party on Sunday. The wrap up party was my first ever blogger event. I was definitely nervous about going and this was quadrupled by my lack of phone, my technology separation anxiety had reached a peak! My nerves were definitely unfounded as i had a great night!

But this is one of today’s topics for the September Beauty Blog Challenge so I thought I would write it from a newbie perspective. This is what I have learned about blogging so far and some small titbits of advice. I’m sure my seasoned blogger friends would have plenty more to add so I recommend following the #SBBC on twitter for more advice.
This is the lifestyle topic for today’s September Beauty Blog Challenge! I’ve been sick for a few days so I had to use a photo from last week, sorry! Back in June I bought a DSLR camera, a Nikon D3200. As soon as I bought it I realised I didn’t have a bean how to use it and decided I better learn to get the most out of it.
Well I’m excited but nervous as this is the first non-beauty post on my blog! I plan on sticking to 95% beauty posts as it’s my hobby in life – ha ha – but I will throw in the odd lifestyle/non-beauty post here and there. This is my fifth post for the September Beauty Blog Challenge (find out more here) and the lifestyle option for today is travel dreams.
Travel is one of my other big loves in life. I’ve been to a fair few places over the years but I still have a list as long as my arm of places I want to go and here are my top three…
