The Truth About Let's Kiss And Makeup



It's been 6 months since I last posted on letskissandmakeup.co.uk. To be honest, life has just got in the way.  I completed my Master's degree (more on that later) and time away from blogging has made me realise that my interests have diverged completely from when I first started blogging over 8 years ago.

A Week in Iceland | Budget Travel Itinerary


My boyfriend and I had been eyeing up a trip to Iceland for a while and as his 22nd birthday was fast approaching, I thought I would surprise him by booking the trip. I knew Iceland, as part of Scandinavia, was considerably more expensive than the UK and after a bit of research, I realised it was possible to explore on a budget.

2017: The Year I Graduated


2017 was a big year for me... I graduated with my first degree! 

On Thursday the 6th of July, I graduated in McEwan Hall where I received my diploma for an LLB honours degree in Law from the University of Edinburgh. After four years of hard work, a lot of ups and a few downs along the way, I finally felt as though those late nights and tiresome days in the library finally paid off.

Autumn Dress Haul | Tobi Clothing

Tobi.com kindly got in touch with me recently and gave me a sample of their dresses to try. Tobi is an online women's fashion boutique based in Los Angeles, but have extended their shipping to over 150 countries worldwide, including the UK. I selected a range of dresses perfect for the transition from Summer to Autumn fashion.

Visiting Leuven & Brussels | POLITICO EU Studies Fair


For those of you who have been following my blog for a while now will know I studied in Leuven, Belgium for my third year of University. I moved back to Edinburgh in September 2016 and whilst deciding where to study my masters degree, I came across the POLITICO EU Studies fair set to commence in Brussels in February 2017. Of course, I couldn't miss out on an opportunity to visit Belgium again, so last month, I combined a trip to catch up with friends in Leuven and attend the EU Studies fair in Brussels.
