I'm donating my hair

If you are a long time follower/ reader of this blog, you might have noticed, I have really long hair. Well, not for much longer! Its getting the chop, and its all for a good cause :)

Truth be told, I have no idea how my hair actually got so long... Well the biggest reason is just laziness and not bothering with going to a hairdressers but its just always something I put off, like the dentist almost :/ I never planned to grow my hair super long, I noticed one day it was past my shoulders.... then boob level... then to my elbows and now its basically at my waist. I'm writing this a few days before the chop/ hair appointment and I'm looking forward to it. I'm desperate for a change!

GRWM | KYOTO

Something slightly  different today, its a GRWM :) I love watching these myself and on a lazy morning at our apartment in Kyoto, we decided to film something simple. This was/is pretty much my make up look while I was out there and in general. Thought it was good to have something visual for people to look at, rather than a lot of words, as I know I can waffle on a bit. Hope you guys enjoy :) xxx

JAPAN TRAVEL DIARY | DAY 4 |

 A fun filled day: Meiji Shrine, Shibuya and more.....

It was a laid back start to the day and our first thought was breakfast. Our Ryokan was very basic and not equipped to cook in and although it had a coffee shop next door, it was always busy and it is customary to queue up outside a place at lunch time; where most eateries are so small and can only fit a dozen people in it a t a time, most people are happy to wait outside. A quick internet search lead us to an Australian themed cafe called cafe byron bay, which was amazing; It had a good choice of veggie and vegan food too.

JAPAN TRAVEL DIARY | DAY 1-2 |

Welcome to the Japan Diaries! This will be a little series on my thoughts and experiences about Japan, a diary like entry for myself to look back on as well, as I've tried in the past to write thoughts down about places I've visited, but me being scatty, I misplaced them. So at least they are now online for me to keep and share :)

My 1st Lookbook (& catch up)

I'm Back! 
And to celebrate my return and to make up that I haven't blogged in weeks I've got a lookbook for you! 
Bt first, Japan!


I fully intend on blogging a travel diary type of thing so you can see what we got up to so I won't say too much about that, apart from it was everything I wanted it to be! I even vlogged a bit, so hopefully there will be some more videos to come in the near future :) But in a nutshell, I loved it! I prefered Tokyo over Kyoto just because I love that city life (I've never lived in a city btw, which is probably why I liked it over Kyoto) Tokyo at night time was my fave, it is neon billboard city, its a lot for your senses to take in; eyes and ears mainly as every shop and crossing will play its own twinkly theme tune. It was my first time using Airbnb too, and now having finally used it can confirm it's an amazing service and would 100% use again.
