11 things you should know before going to New York

11 things you should know before going to New York

It may have been a few years ago now that I went to New York but I still forever want to go back and do it all again. It really is an amazing city, and was exactly as good as I expected it to be and more. Although, I did walk my feet clean off I wouldn't have had it any other way. I'm not yet to go back, though it is on my list, as there is so many things I didn't do when I was there. There is a lot of things to squeeze into your trip to New York, we only went for 5 days so it isn't all that long really. I did contract some sickness bug on my last day too so that wasn't the easiest to get around a busy city with. With my experience behind me, I know exactly what I would do differently if I was to go again.. and things I would do all over again!

Small gift ideas

Small gift ideas

I always struggle with the smaller gifts, even though most of the time they're my favourite types to receive I find them harder to choose! But sometimes you need that smaller gift/stocking filler just to finish off a gift, so I thought I'd do a post on a mixture of stocking fillers/small gifts. I know it's Christmas soon, so I am a little behind, but these would make lovely gifts all year round. Whether it's for Christmas (can you believe it's two days away?!), birthdays or a treat yo' self moment. I seem to be having treat yo' self moments a lot lately though..!

Ghost Fragrance Christmas Gift Set

Ghost Fragrance Gift Set

I've absolutely loved Ghost fragrances ever since I was a teenager and first got my hands on Ghost The Fragrance. Their perfumes have such an unusual scent to them that makes you absolutely love it, they have an ever so slight musk to them which makes them last so much longer than your usual perfume. When I saw the Ghost Dream gift set I thought it would make the perfect Christmas gift, the Ghost gift sets are so amazing this year I wish I had got one for myself!

Adexe Watches gift of time

Adexe Watches Christmas gifts

I always love watches but I've never been an avid watch wearer, though I'm probably the only person I know who doesn't own one. This is probably why I was so excited to get an Adexe watch! I opted for the MAC Grande Black & Rosegold watch, as I'm in love with anything rose gold! The watch has such a classic look to it, and will also go with anything. It's perfect for my new job and also for any nights out, plus I do always wear black so it is quite fitting for me!

Prestige Flowers Christmas Bouquet

Prestige Flowers Christmas Gift

I don't know about anyone else, but I really struggle to buy gifts for my Grandma and Nana. Well, unless it's a bottle of Coco Chanel every year I don't know what to buy. But my Grandparents are so appreciative of anything that even a pretty bunch of flowers and chocolates can win them over. Prestige Flowers do literally a bunch of everything, there is pretty country flowers to gifts for any occasion like Christmas coming up! I opted for the Winter Warmer bunch which also comes with a box of truffles, yum! There is heaps of beautiful bunches, whether it's Christmas or not. The Happy Christmas bunch being my favourite with the pretty acorns in!

Eyelashes for the party season

Koko lashes from

It's not often that I'll wear eyelashes anymore, fringes and eyelashes can be quite tricky! But I always like to have that bit of extra 'difference' at Christmas that makes your make up stand out more. Eyelashes can really finish off a make up look so I was really looking forward to trying out Koko Lashes. It's the first I've heard of Koko but they looked too perfect not to try. They have such a huge range of lashes, from the bold dark fluffy ones to simple delicate natural look ones. They're a little bit more expensive than the typical Eyelure ones but they're so much nicer.

The best gift for a travel lover - El Camino

El Camino travel charm bracelets

I love quirky Christmas presents, especially when some have a meaning behind them. This is why I love the concept behind El Camino jewellery, especially if you're a budding travel lover like me! It was the first I've came across this brand recently and instantly fell in love with the idea, even my Mam thought it was a sweet idea. I'm a lover of charm bracelets but I find them quite bulky mostly, whereas this one is really comfortable to wear all the time.

Fresher Me Mud Mask

Fresher Me mud mask

I love a good face mask, I've tried absolutely heaps of them and love trying out new ones. I still have my trusty ones that I'll always swear by, but they all seem to do different things so I'm always multi-masking. This one is by Fresher Me, and it's a mud mask. Mud masks are my favourite as they really clear your skin of any impurities and stop me from getting any blemishes. This is the first I'd heard of this brand, although I had seen them on Instagram, so was intrigued to try them out!
