What I got for my birthday | 23

At the beginning of May I turned 23. Here’s a quick roundup of what I received from my boyfriend and family.

Gym membership and personal training sessions. Not very exciting I know but something very useful as I need all the motivation I can get.

Rose gold double ring necklace. My little sister is the cutest. She saw a bracelet that I have which is similar to this and so decided to get it for me as a necklace to match.

Rose gold bracelet. Another piece of gorgeous jewellery to add to my collection.

Nursing student planner. This is an amazing present. As you all know I am hopefully going to going to university in September to start my nursing degree, so this will become very useful.

Your top five traveling essentials for a winter getaway

This time of year, most people like to book a short break away to get away from the dreary weather. You could be heading to Cologne for their famous markets, architecture and museums. Or perhaps you’ve decided to hit the slopes for some skiing, putting your feet up in front of a blazing fire each night. Whatever the destination, winter packing is just as difficult as traveling during the summer, so here are the essentials you should make sure you don’t leave home without.

  1. Stylish holdalls

When you’re taking a break rather than a full holiday, try to cut down on your packing. By opting for a holdall that qualifies as a carry-on, you’ll not only make traveling to different cities easier, but you’ll cut out the cost of paying for checked-in baggage. There are some quirky designs out there these days too, which means you’ll stay on trend even when trekking through an airport. However, make sure you always buy a well-known luggage manufacturer, such as Antler or Tripp. Although that designer piece might look pretty, the chances are that the quality won’t be there.

  1. Organisers

It’s always a good idea to be organised for your trip. Shop around for your currency rate, try to book tickets for shows in advance where you can, always print your hotel confirmation, and make sure you have back-up paper copies of any e-boarding passes. The problem is, where do you put it all? There are some cute travel organisers that you can pick up on Etsy and Not on the High Street, and it means you’ll have everything in one place.

  1. Fashion accessories

It’s always difficult choosing fashion accessories for winter holidays, so try to stick to simple additions. Invest in luxurious fur gloves, hats and scarfs that match, so that they can easily be paired with any outfit. When it comes to jewellery, stick to a few key statement pieces, such as your ChloBo charm bracelet and a timepiece with some sparkle.

  1. Mini first-aid kits

As it’s the colder time of year, it’s always a good idea to take cold and flu medicine with you, so that you don’t have to worry about finding a pharmacy whilst you’re in a foreign country. Try to second guess what you’ll need, such as plasters for your feet after those long walks around cobbled streets, or a lip-balm for your chapped lips from the harsh elements.

  1. Think smart when packing

If you’re taking a holdall rather than a full suitcase, you’ll be looking for space-saving ideas: go for two jumpers instead of several thinner tops, wear your bulky coat for all weathers to the airport, but pack a lightweight waterproof, and make sure you wear your good pair of walking shoes too, cutting down on the weight. If you’re going skiing but you’re not a regular, the chances are you won’t have the gear, so buy cheaper versions or simply hire your ski-wear whilst you’re there.

Where are you heading to this winter?

My Rose Gold Obsession – Jewellery Box

When I went to London last month for the #BigBloggerExpo event, I was introduced to the gorgeous brand ‘Jewellery Box’. I met the lovely Gemma and she explained all about the brand and a bit about a couple of pieces I was interested in, that she had on display. I told her about my love for Rose Gold and she kindly gave me a little gift to take home with me.
