Amsterdam - Day 1

30 October 2017

I have truly caught the travelling bug! My plans for this year were to actually travel outside of Europe but tbh everywhere I’ve been this year has been great so I can’t even complain. What I thought was my final trip of the year (it’s not I’ve managed to sneak in a quick trip to Disneyland Paris in December) was to Amsterdam. I visited Amsterdam last year September and when a friend wanted to go back this year I was like yes! I absolutely loved it last time so I was more than happy to use up some of the free time I had, in what I like to call one of my favourite cities.


This time I stayed in Amsterdam for 3 nights and arrived in the afternoon on a Monday, we stayed at The Grand Hotel Downtown – I will hopefully do a review of that if I haven’t gone overboard on the Amsterdam posts! We stayed in their penthouse and had a lovely terrace that I admittedly didn’t make much use of but still, it was affordable and provided great views of the city!

Review: The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

24 October 2017

I'm finally back with a blog post and I'm back to talking skincare! I'm back to talking about The Ordinary as I stated in my last post when I reviewed the Niacinamide 10%, I wanted to try a couple more of their products so I ordered the Alpha Lipoic Acid and Alpha Arbutin at the end of May and I’ve used them long enough to give my final opinion on both of them (Alpha Lipioc Acid review is coming soon). I’ve blabbed on about The Ordinary and their aim and who they are, so definitely have a read if you want to find out more about the brand. Briefly, though - they aim to provide high-quality skincare ingredients at a fair price and their products range between £5 - £12.


One night at Hotel Du Vin, York

9 October 2017

As promised in my last post I wanted to talk about where I stayed whilst I was in York. We ended up choosing Hotel Du Vin, which is a chain of hotels, because I fell in love with the mezzanine double room. It had the bed and toilet on one floor and the bathroom with a shower on another. It was adorable and I fell in love with the roll top bath as expected so we decided this would be our choice of lodging for our time in York.


A trip to York, England.

I’m back with another trip – this time to York. We arrived at Kings Cross, had a lovely breakfast on the train before arriving into York at around lunch time.
