Hello! So I'm going away to Malawi in a couple of days which is super exciting!! If you've watched my vlog on Youtube (linked down below) then you would have seen me starting to pack a few things and organising my different bags. I'm going for 3 weeks with the charity AMECA and am going to be volunteering in a local children's hospital as well as refurbish and decorate a new school that is opening (so amazing right?). I think we're doing a few other activities too during my time away such as go on safari (literally my dream seeing elephants - *heart eyes*) and also visiting the gorgeous Lake Malawi! A full blog post will of course be up about my whole trip once I am back so keep your eyes peeled for that one!

Now back to packing...obviously this isn't your typical beachy/relaxing/girly holiday and so I won't be taking a lot of makeup with me, or hair products etc (time to go au-natural) so my hand luggage is filled with a few more "practical" items this time! But below I have listed a few essential items that I cannot live without whilst travelling...even if this is more of a working trip away! So here is an insight into my hand luggage...

Hello! I'm still loving everything monochrome as usual, even during the summer months. But here you can see that you can still look summery even in black and white! I love this cute Bardot style top from Primark (£6) and it has a ribbed effect material too which I am loving at the moment, because it adds more texture to an outfit. This skirt is from Zara (last season) and is made from a lovely thick fabric, which makes it a lot more structured and less see-through (the biggest trouble with white bottoms)!

Instead of writing a monthly favourites post, I thought I would do a monthly haul instead. This is because this month I haven't really used any different in my makeup or skincare routine...and the new products that I do have, I haven't been using them for long enough to be able to give an honest review.

I also filmed this monthly haul for my Youtube channel too (linked below) if you would like to see me chat through these bits and bobs in more detail.

A little outfit post for you all...last evening I went for some dinner and drinks with some friends which was lovely because the weather was amazing which meant we could sit outside - dining alfresco y'all how I like to roll.

Instagram is probably my favourite social media outlet to use because I love love love taking pictures! I take pictures almost every day of different things from food, friends, outfits of the day, my dog and of course a couple of selfies thrown in there! I'm one of those people that takes about three photos of the same thing just to make sure I've captured it how I wanted to - probably why my phone storage is always full up!

A couple of months ago my boyfriend and I wanted to go on holiday. We were thinking about going somewhere typically beachy with cocktail bars and a hotel pool, but we decided that actually we wanted to go somewhere a little different with more culture and adventure. Eventually we decided on Marrakech - somewhere I have always wanted to visit purely because my first thought about it was 'amazing Moroccan food and lanterns'.

So, today is A-Level results day - a day I remember all too well! Opening the envelope to see your results is one of the most nerve-wracking moments, especially if you need specific grades to get into your chosen university. But of course not everybody wants to go onto university after college and that is completely fine (in hindsight I probably should have thought more about what I wanted to do instead of rushing my decision). Some of you may go straight into work, others may take a gap year and some people might go onto further education courses before university - whatever your choice is, make sure you are happy in your decision, that's the main priority.

Rimmel has always been one of my favourite drugstore beauty brands for as long as I can remember purely for its quality and affordability. So a couple of years ago when they collaborated with Kate Moss, one of my ultimate style icons, to create a range of lipsticks I was beyond excited.

OUTFIT OF THE DAY | casual summer day

These are my favourite kinds of days - sun shining, country walk and pub lunch. Perfecto! I'm so glad that the weather has finally picked up again because I don't have to worry about wearing loads of layers and carrying around jackets just in case it rains (unpredictable English summer for you)!

Brighton is one of my favourites places to visit in the UK. It always has a chilled, arty vibe about it which just makes you want to stroll around aimlessly all day and take it all in. I recently visited for the day with my boyfriend, as he hasn't really explored Brighton properly before. So I thought I'd share with you my top 5 favourite things to do in Brighton if you're just visiting for the day!

ASOS are one of my all time favourite places to shop. It's so quick and easy to find what you are looking for and everything is in one place. If I'm looking for a particular style of clothing or accessory, or I just fancy a browse in general, I know ASOS will have many things to offer that I like.

Ever found that perfect beauty combination and thought 'why haven't I worn this before?!' Well, I had that moment earlier last month. We've all had a go at pulling off the popular 'Kylie Jenner/90's' lip trend recently, and even though this beauty craze has been going around for a while now, I still can't get enough and am loving it for a natural summer look. So I thought I would show you what my favourite 90's inspired lip combo of the moment is...

Just a quick post from me today whilst I'm waiting for the Pimms jug to be re-filled - obviously a must-have on summer evenings! Earlier today I went shopping with my mum without the intention of buying anything for myself, and more the intention of finding her a wedding outfit. But of course, who am I kidding? I couldn't resist a few new purchases.
