Lifestyle | 25 Travel/Life Things On My Bucket List!
When was the last time you didn't something huge and exciting? Something you had waited years to do? Things that added value to your life and that you craved? We get so wrapped up in our day to day lives we forget to do the things that we actually want.

Writing a list of things to do before you die sounds morbid so we tend to limit things to things to do before we hit a milestone like hitting 25 years old or 30 but we can't constantly tick off daily life to-do's without doing things that scare us a little, with that in mind - apparently you should do something that scares you daily, not in a harmful scary way but in the sense that you should do something that you never thought you could do or accomplish. The only thing that's holding you back from your goals - is you. If we never make goals we won't push ourselves so just bear that in mind 

Also, Don't forget to check off everything you do accomplish, It will keep you motivated and you'll want to cross off more the more you achieve. Check on it regularly and go over the things that aren't relevant to you anymore and maybe switch or change it up as often as you like, Lets face it your not going to run out of things to do and they can be as big or small as you like.

I'm a huge list maker so I'll find any excuse to make a list! Here's 50 things from my bucket list, I have things from my childhood right up to now and you can see what I've crossed off too! 

1. Go on Safari preferably in Cape Town! - I've done little ones but not a proper African safari and I would love to!

2. Raise a Puppy - I used to be petrified of dogs until we rescued a border collie/black lab cross and he was lovely and then we got another dog but neither were puppies ever since then I wanted a puppy of my own to raise myself and it was one of the best things! I also did a post on why pugs are the best pets  [here

3. Visit Pandora at Magic Kingdom! - I've been to magic Kingdom before but now they have Pandora the land from the film Avatar and it looks insane!

Beauty | Look Fantastic Beauty Box - May

Beauty | Look Fantastic Beauty Box - May
You probably know by now that I get the Look Fantastic beauty box every month, Its £13 pound if you subscribe for 12 months (which is what I did) just click the [here] if you want to have a look. This months box was a beautiful pink one which I was pretty happy about. The theme this month was 'Get the Glow' Perfect for the summer season.

I don't know if I've mentioned this before but with every box you get that months issue of Elle magazine and a little beauty box short magazine also, which just explains whats in the box and other beauty tips and products that fit in with the theme of this months box.

I've seen so many body scrubs around and I really like the idea of it, I love exfoliating my face I know that's weird but I love the feel afterwards. The fact this is for my entire body makes me super happy, if your an avid fake tanner like me you'll understand that exfoliation is the key to a smooth home tan! The fact its all natural with amazing ingredients makes me want to re purchase for sure.

This hair oil is amazing! It's enriched with with a blend of oils that nourish and condition the hair. It smells bloody amazing and I've recently amped up my hair care routine because I've had hair extensions for so long I didn't really bother with my own but I'm getting a proper chop this month so i really want to get as much hair care as I can - This one is amazing!

In the box you could either get the shade 'Peach' or 'Cream' I love the idea of the peach shade but I'm so happy with the cream shade its so glowy and shimmery which will look amazing in the summer when you don't want to go all over the top with your eye shadows this will be perfect.

This little cloth is made from hypoallergenic fibres, It gently removes make up - even eye make up with just water leaving your skin super clean and glowy, Its like magic!

At first I though this was a peel mask but its not..Basically, you put it on your face and rub it round in circular movements with your fingers like a cleanser and the peel solidifies under your fingers because of the blend of proteins and removes dead skin cells so you get left with a refreshed renewed complexion I think its such a cool product! 

I think this product sounds so cool, I always wear fake tan throughout summer this mist hydrates and nourishes the skin while leaving a hint of bronze for a gorgeous glowy sun kissed finish!

That was this months beauty box - I loved it. I'm already buzzing for next months!
