Christmas Gift Guide: Fragrance Lovers

Christmas Gift Guide: Fragrance Lovers

AD- includes an advertising feature with Clive Christian

Here I am with the second Christmas gift guide for this year! This time, I'm focussing in on fragrances and perfumes. 

Be sure to check out my other gift guide for friends & sisters too. 

Perfumes are always a popular gift at Christmas but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming with so many brands out there. 

I've put together some of my favourites that I've been trying out over the past 6 months that I think would make great gifts for someone you love. 

I've got all price points covered from budget fragrances all the way up to the high end (including the most expensive perfume in the world per ounce)!

Christmas Gift Guide: Friends & Sisters

Christmas Gift Guide: Friends & Sisters

Welcome to my first Christmas gift guide for this year!!!!

I have been trying to hold back the excitement (without much success) about getting stuck into these gift guides, as I enjoyed doing them so much last year

It was great to hear your feedback too, how you were able to find presents for your loved ones that you may not have thought of getting for them. 

I can't wait to show you what I've been keeping stashed in a massive box in my room filled with goodies, and I just want to say a huge thank you to any brands and PR's who have kindly helped me out this year! Your support means the world to me.

How Much Money Does It Cost To Travel Around Bali and Lombok

Bingin Beach, Bali

After the success of my last travel budget of how much it cost us to travel to New Zealand, I thought I'd keep going with the rest of the places that we backpacked to last year. 

After a wonderful month in New Zealand, we jumped on a plane heading to Bali with our heads filled with drinking beers on white sand beaches and temples galore, and then after a couple of weeks, we hopped next door to Lombok and the Gili Islands for a visit.

If you want to see all the places that we travelled to while in Bali then check out this video, and they'll be another video about our time in Lombok and the Gilis coming soon

Price-wise compared to other places in Asia, Bali isn't the cheapest. This is probably because of how popular it's become in the last couple of years, becoming a bucket list destination for many. 

I would definitely agree with the notion that it's become quite touristy and even though it's still extremely popular, it's not as "desert island" like or laidback as you think it's going to be. 

It's still a fab island to visit and if you have time, then making the trip over to some of the neighbouring islands is really worth your time and money as they are a bit cheaper than Bali.

When it comes to how much you get for your money, you still get a lot compared to New Zealand. We travelled around March/April 2017 and at the time, the Indonesian Rupiah was about 16,000 to £1, but it has since risen to around 19,000 at the time I'm posting this. 

As before, I'll be breaking the pricing down into daily budgets with a round up for a month's stay at the end of the post. 

So if you're saving for a getaway to Bali and Lombok, here's how much you'll need to budget.

9 Of My Favourite Skincare Products Under £20

9 Of My Favourite Skincare Products Under £20

AD - contains affiliate links

It's been a hot minute since I've been sat at my desk typing away at my laptop. I decided to take a short break away from being online to press pause and reset. 

I go into this in more detail in this chatty video, as I've really missed doing those types of posts and videos along with my usual travel, beauty, fashion and lifestyle. 

The break has done me good, as I feel full to the brim with ideas, and with the craziness of Christmas coming up, it was perfect timing to get myself back into the blogging mojo again. 

That being said, let's crack on with some beauty talk!

I can finally say that I'm happy with my skincare routine and collection (again, something that I will go into more detail another time) but it can get a bit excessive on the bank balance if you love your high-end products. 

With that in mind, I decided to take a look at my skincare collection for the gems that do the job all while being under £20. Over the past few months, I've really discovered the wonders of quality luxury skincare, but when I started out I was all about budget skincare. 

My skin is currently going through a combination of being oily and sensitive so most of the products will be tailored for that. 

If you're on a budget too but want to have products that work just as hard as the higher priced products, read on.

The 6 Best Things To Do In Cambodia

Preah Khan, Angkor Wat
Preah Khan, Angkor Wat

Cambodia, as a country, gave me a whole mix of emotions.

Some were positive and some were not, but when you're travelling around multiple countries at once there will always be one that doesn't match up to the others as much. 

That being said, Cambodia is a fantastic country with a hell of a lot of culture and history (be it ancient or modern) to boot. 

If you're looking for some travel inspo for Southeast Asia or have booked your plane ticket and are looking for things to do, these are some of the best things I got up to in Cambodia.

Skincare Travel Hacks to Tame Your Skin

Skincare Travel Hacks to Tame Your Skin

As much as I love travelling, it really can wreak havoc on your skin, especially if you don't look after it. When I came back from backpacking last year, I wrote this post about how I was fixing up my skincare to help my skin recover, but even while I was out there I tried my best to keep my skin moisture topped up. 

The problem with that is, you can't bring your whole skincare cupboard with you in the attempt to keep your face and body covered in lotions 24/7. You're going to need a dream team of multi-tasking products that will keep your skin looking as fresh and glowing as before you stepped on that plane.

I've put together some of my favourite travel hacks and products to help tame your travel skin for your next trip away, whether it's to a sunny tropical island, humid city break or minus 
degree temperatures skiing holiday.
