Everyday Red Eye Makeup | Morphe Budget Palette

Over the Christmas holidays, I experimented a little bit with my eye makeup and came up with an everyday red eye makeup look featuring a Morphe eyeshadow palette. I was looking for a maroon/red eyeshadow palette for a while, and was lusting after Kylie Jenner's eyeshadow palette, but came across Morphe's eyeshadow palettes instead, which are simply INCREDIBLE!

Kraków | Auschwitz & Wieliczka Salt Mine

- warning: some may find the photos/issues discussed in this post distressing -

2016/17 was a year of big birthdays for my family: I turned 21 in September, my Mum turned 50 in December and my Sister was 18 at the start of this month. To celebrate, we went to Kraków from the 14th to the 17th of October together. We try to go on holiday together once a year, previously we enjoyed a week in London during the summer months, but the last time we went abroad (besides visits to Belgium) was a trip to Paris well over 6/7 years ago.

2017: New Opportunities & A Year of Uncertainty

On New Years Eve of 2015, I knew exactly how 2016 would pan out. After spending my Christmas break with family and friends back home in Edinburgh, I would return to Belgium for a second semester and eventually move back to Edinburgh later that year. I knew that when I returned, I would start to complete my final year at my home University. Everything seemed so certain. Of course, I had a couple of surprises along the way, a bundle of resits meant I prolonged my Erasmus year an extra two months and I managed to do a lot of unexpected travelling in my summer holidays.

This year seems different.
