OCTOBER PLAYLIST

It's nearly November which means it's time for another playlist post. I have had quite a busy October and its gone extremely fast but I don't mind because it means it's nearer to Christmas. I've got lots of exciting plans in November and December too including going to Radio 1 Xtra concert in Manchester so I've been listening to a few tracks from artists who will be playing there.

THE BLOGGING EQUIPMENT YOU NEED.

In hindsight all you need to blog is a laptop or phone and your ideas however there are some items that you can use to help make blogging easier and help develop better content too. When I started my blog over 3 years ago, I had no idea what I was doing! I just wanted to write my thoughts down somewhere and be part of a community I'd loved for so long. All I had was my blogger account, my iPhone 5 and a notebook and away I went. Now I'm not saying you need to have the best cameras and a Macbook Pro to blog because that's not true, there is no right or wrong to which equipment you use. However I thought it would be nice to share with you what I use to run my blog now that it's evolved over the years.

MY HOLY GRAIL BEAUTY PRODUCTS

It's no secret that I'm a beauty addict. I love all things beauty and have collected a fair amount of make up over the years. Having tried and tested lots of products I've grown to love a few items more than the rest and I'd go as far as saying I couldn't live without them. They're my go to holy grail items and if you've not tried them yourselves then you need to head down to your local beauty store to test them out.

30 THINGS I'M THANKFUL FOR

I've been inspired to do this post because I saw Sophie Rose do it over on her blog and I thought it was nice to share with people everything I'm thankful for. Many people are struggling in this world we live in and I'm lucky to have so many amazing people in my life. It's so important to be positive and make the most of everything so if you're ever feeling down or having a hard time, why not write down all the things your thankful for to cheer yourself up.

TOP NAIL POLISH PICKS FOR THE AUTUMN/WINTER SEASON

The autumn season is in full swing so it's time to embrace those burgundy shades and switch out the brights colours for the nudes, bronze and mustard shades. I used to be an avid acrylics girl but it got to the point where I couldn't really afford to keep it up every 2 weeks and my natural nails were becoming weak so I decided to throw the towel in and embrace my short and stumpy natural nails! In order to try and make myself feel more girly again I like to paint my nails once a week (usually on a Sunday). During the winter months I embrace the seasonal colours and find myself leaning towards the berry shades, browns, bronzey golds and the navy blue. Today I'm sharing with you my top picks. I have my own gel nail kit at home too so I often use normal nail polishes and then use my gel top coat to ensure the polish lasts.

PERSONALISED PHONE CASES WITH GO CUSTOMIZED*

We all own a mobile phone, right? Let's face it in this day and age we're glued to them (I know I certainly am). I use my phone every single day and I want to keep it protected at all times, but still look pretty too! I often find that the phone cases that are hard wearing are a little bit ugly, which results in a problem because I then opt for the pretty flimsy cases and my phone is still unprotected. I love getting new phone cases so when GoCustomized got in touch with me about a collab opportunity I was more than happy to oblige.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and you should all join me in supporting the cause and raising as much awareness as possible for Breast Cancer.

A WEEKEND IN KRAKOW

I must admit that Krakow has never been top of my list for places to visit but it has always intrigued me and since lots of my friends and family have told me how beautiful it is I thought to myself then why not go for a nice long weekend away with my boyfriend. I was pleasantly surprised by the city of Krakow. It's an amazing place, with lots to see, endless places to eat and drink and lovely people to talk to. I honestly couldn't believe how cheap was; we had a 2 course slap up meal with lots to drink and it was less that £30 for two of us! BARGAIN!
