BUDAPEST


Helló, and welcome to part two of our European adventure! This time I’m going to bore you to death regale you with tales from Budapest, Hungary. This city was definitely one of our favourites from the whole trip, with more kebabs, avant-garde bars and boiling weather than you can shake a stick at (do people really shake sticks at things? If so, I would like to meet these people).

After recovering from the food poisoning incident in Split, Croatia (read my Croatia blog post first, if you haven’t already!), we braved the 14-hour overnight train and arrived in Budapest at around 8:30am…

CROATIA


And so begins the round-up of the last month of my life! I’m having to accept that I’m a bit of a living cliche; I graduated from university in July and promptly went off travelling to, like, tOOOtally find myself (or to avoid getting a grown-up job for at least another month). You will probably have seen some Instagram posts that I spent far too long on, interspersed with a bunch of half-arsed Instagram stories, and they may have given you a vague idea as to where on the continent I was. 

I’ve had this interrail trip planned for about a year. I’ve wanted to go around Europe ever since I moved back to the UK, and finally found a unsuspecting victim willing partner, my boyfriend Chris, to make the trip with me.   And so, we started saving up our pennies and roughly mapping routes and looking at potential hostels. We eventually settled on a plan and worked on scraping the funds together. It felt like f o r e v e r waiting for the 21st of July to come around, but it finally did. 

So without further ado, here’s a roundup of my time in Croatia...

A BAND MERCH PHOTOSHOOT WITH HEARTH


Of all the girls in the world a band could choose to model their new merch, my boyfriend’s band managed to choose the shortest and most uncoordinated one. Me. 

If you’ve been following this blog or my YouTube channel for a while, you’ll probably have ‘met’ my boyfriend Chris! He’s been in Hearth, a post-hardcore band based in London, for a couple of years and they’ve recently started playing live shows. Now the live shows have started, the original Hearth t-shirt became really popular.

BRUNCHING IN A TINY VILLAGE IN DEVON


I found myself down in Devon this weekend, visiting the ‘rents and getting a little bit of sea-breezy relief from hayfever. I grew up in a tiny seaside town called Teignmouth, which is right on the coast and full of exciting things like charity shops and pubs [insert raised eyebrows here]. It’s very very quaint, and very picturesque, but after living in London for two years, it seems like there’s not very much to do. After having a go at the ol’ faithfuls; crazy golf, a walk along the beach and a pint in the pub, I decided I wanted to try finding a good brunch spot. I’ve become absolutely obsessed with brunch lately, and I decided it would be nice to explore some cafés so I can have my fix when I’m down in Devon again.

KAT VON D EVERLASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK COLLECTION + SWATCHES


I’d originally planned to write this blog post up a few weeks ago, but Kat Von D very selfishly decided to out herself as an anti-vaxxer the very same week. I was going to scrap the blog post, but I actually (as much as it pains me to say it) a d o r e  Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick collection and I will definitely still be using her products. My KVD Beauty liquid lipstick collection is made up of three shades so far; Bow N Arrow, Sanctuary and Damned.

I buy my Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick from Debenhams. I’ve ordered a couple online, but managed to find an actual stand in-store on Oxford Street last year, so I could try them out and find a good colour in person. They are £17 and come in about a bazillion shades; nudes, reds, pinks and also some blues, greens, a grey and an amazing jet-black.
