#tiptalk - road trip safety ♥

I am counting down the days until Ollie and I travel to Alicante and Valenica. This year we are actually hiring a car when we land and I'm pretty excited to explore Spain! I thought in true Fairytale Kiss style I would write a post about the in's and outs of our holiday, including when we take a long road trip. Before I post about this holiday, I want to talk about a certain blog post. I recently wrote a post about passing my driving test so I think a road trip safety post fits nicely together! We are also planning a few UK based road trips so I wanted to do a little research if I took my car. I've only just started driving on the motorway and I didn't really feel that prepared when it came to understanding the technical part of my car.

aldi coastal interior range ♥

ALDI door mat*
It has been a while since I spoke about my love for interior shopping. With summer in full swing I was over the moon when an email from ALDI landed in my inbox. When I was a student, I would spend my entire life in ALDI and ASDA walking down the aisles, I can't believe the hidden gems you can find and I am so excited that ALDI have launched the Coastal interior collection! If you've been following my blog for a while then you will know that I love simple, classic designs.

l'oreal professional hair fashion night ♥

Last week I made my way to the L'Oreal Professional Hair Fashion night, located at the House of Rush salon in London, I arrived with my sister and we were welcomed with Prosecco and an ice cream machine - which she certainly had fun with. We were guided around the room and shown a few new products and as 6.00pm arrived, I made my way upstairs for my hair appointment. One of the lovely L'Oreal stylists kindly styled my hair with tight curls. She used GHD's to create a tight curl, backcombed the roots and then used the L'Oreal Professional Infinium hairspray* to set everything into place.

make-up revolution renaissance palettes ♥

When it comes to beauty products, I love finding hidden gems. I really admire brands for pushing the envelope and creating something a little bit different. We see so many different beauty products, whether we are popping into Boots or flicking through Instagram - pretty product packaging is everywhere. When Make-Up Revolution kindly posted this package through my door, I was excited to say the least. The Revolution Renaissance palettes* have certainly pushed the boundaries for eyeshadow palettes, I love that the brand took an extra step to style these palettes differently. Their hard work has certainly paid off in the luxury packaging department, but what about the actual product quality?

#tiptalk - finding a wedding venue ♥

A few days ago I wrote about planning a hen do, I thought today I would write a nice little post about finding your wedding venue! This falls under the budget friendly option aswell so I thought the two posts would work together nicely and hopefully useful for some of you reading! When I began searching for wedding venues, a Bedfordshire wedding venue* really stood out to me. Not only is the location easy to get to but the venue is simply stunning! To start your wedding venue hunt, knowing the amount of guests is essential. I would personally buy a wedding planer book and sit down with your fiance to work out the guest list.

fitness with origym ♥

My brother has been glued to the revolving gym door for as long as I can remember. While he is thinking about his career for the future, he is also considering a career as a personal trainer. I love that we have so much choice when it comes to jobs and it makes sense to do something we are passionate about. From joining the gym almost a year ago, I can certainly see why personal training is such a popular career option at the moment. It certainly looks satisfying making people feel better about themselves - similar to a make-up artist or a beauty therapist. When I was contacted by Origym* I was really excited to write this post especially when quite a few of you will be looking at your career options after finishing your exams. Origym can actually provide you with training to become a successful gym trainer.

#tiptalk - planning a hen do ♥

It has been on my to do list to write a blog post about my Las Vegas hen do trip for quite a while now. This year I have seen so many engagements and if you are planning a stag or hen do but can't afford to spend your life savings on a flight to a jazzy destination, North London may be the answer to your prayers. I actually ordered a few party bits from Last Night of Freedom last month and they have just created a survey to find out exactly where the most popular location is for a hen do and stag do! The answer? Newcastle! A Newcastle based wedding venue named Cairn Hotel Group have created a super easy guide for planning a stag and hen do. I have added a few extra tips and tricks from my Vegas hen do too.

#tiptalk - learning how to drive ♥

Hi girls I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I thought it would be an interesting idea to write a post about driving. I have had this blog post on my to do list for a while and Pass 'N' Go* is a great way to get you started. Now, learning how to drive is not always a simple task. I am living proof of this. It actually took me 6 times until I passed my driving test - this wasn't because I wasn't prepared enough but my nerves were constantly getting the better of me. For some reason, as soon as I stepped into the car I would begin to feel sick, nervous and at one point, I stopped the test completely before I even started.
