7 Things I Wish I'd Known When I Started Blogging

Though my first forays into the world of blogging are now a distant memory, looking back there are a few things I can immediately say I'd do differently if I were to start over. One of the best things about blogging is the longer you do it, the more you learn from your mistakes - which is why I love reading these kinds of posts!

Photo Diary: Birthday Celebrations in London

I'll always have a soft spot for cities in the rain, but sunshine in the city is quite something else. All that dazzling light certainly makes for pleasing photos (especially if you're a photography beginner like me!). Never one to let blog-worthy photos go to waste, I though I'd use the chance to share a few restaurant recommendations whilst I'm at it. Enjoy!

Read/Wear/Listen/Want: July

W h a t  a month July has been. For me anyway, namely because work was super intense. Working in events can be pretty unique, because in the space of just 30 days you get to experience the pressure of build up, the craziness of the actual event itself, and then the deflation of it all during breakdown. A rollercoaster of emotions to say the least. 
(Speaking of work, earlier this month I wrote about career lessons, which you can read here!)

Pictured above:
Sophie Hulme Coin Purse - A cheeky Net-A-Porter sale splurge after a particularly gruelling day at work. Downsizing from my traditional bulky purse to this sleeker envelope style purse has saved so much valuable bag space! I've admired Sophie Hulme bags for yeeears so I'm excited to finally own a piece by her.

Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in 'Nude' - My parents were in the States so naturally I had to put in a makeup request! I was apprehensive about this shade as it's totally out of my comfort zone (I'm usually team bold and bright) but I'm slowly but surely falling in love with it!

L'Occitane Hand Creme - another gift from the US of A, this is scented like roses and omg I'm obsessed.

New In: Chambor Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipsticks

Nothing haunts us like the things we didn't buy, and for a while these liquid lipsticks were the cause of much tossing and turning.

I discovered Chambor whilst in Mumbai back in March. The lady working at the counter swatched these liquid lipsticks on the back of my hand. Impressed as I was with their pigmentation and choice of shades, I was skeptical about their durability and went about my day. Said swatches ended up lasting over 11 hours through swimming, showering, handwashing & 34°C blistering Mumbai heat. This was at the end of our trip, so I couldn't go back to the original shop and alas, they weren't available at the airport. And so I returned to England without these beauties. That was until, my friend Sanj offered to pick some up for me on his trip to India (actual angel).
