Ginger Gloss by Origins

This little bottle of liquid gold is one of my current favourite summer products. Sometimes I get a little lazy and don't moisturise as much as I should and so having a luxurious and super hydrating oil in a spray bottle makes applying so much more easy and fast. Also because it contains Jojoba, it's not greasy whatsoever and literally sinks into the skin!

Have any of you tried this beauty wonder?

I got a tattoo!

The day of finally getting tatted up has been long awaited, for as long as I can remember I've wanted tattoos (my Dad raising me to be a heavy metal head probably had something to do with it). But it never really happened, I always had ideas but when it came down to it I didn't have the money or couldn't find the right artist. 

A little while ago I finally took the plunge after finding the perfect artist who worked LITERALLY across the street from my could call that fate. So I popped over and gave him a general idea of what I wanted and a week later I was in a chair having it done! I was a bit nervous because it was my first piece and the size of it meant I was going to have to sit there and deal with the pain for a good few hours, but I was pleasantly wasn't painful at all!

Now it's fully healed....I can begin to plan the next one! Follow my tattoo board on Pinterest to see what's inspiring me!

Instagram Travels: ROME

Last week I jetted off for a mid week break to Rome with the family. It was my first visit to the City and despite the weather averaging at a ridiculous 38 degrees everyday... I had a wonderful time! I was completely balled over by the sheer volume of relics that could be found on every street corner, you can feel the history of the ancient city in the air - and kudos to the government for preserving and celebrating that to this day. 

I can't wait to visit the city again, there is still so much left to discover!
