Oh! ……. To have a DAY in Windsor!
I’m not going to bore you with a LOT of writing,
Instead I am going to post ALOT of photos!!!!!
This will show exactly HOW MUCH FUN I had in Windsor!!!!!!
It is my favourite town in England so far and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and still can visualise the imperial state crown standing right in front of me when I went to see the Crown Jewels. Also, apologies beforehand, I stood in St George’s Chapel for SO long I missed the state rooms! And missed the arch way that Prince Harry and Meghan walked out of!
Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy the photos I took when at Windsor……. the order of photos have a story to tell!
ENJOY my photos!
With Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle’s wedding approaching this May, royal weddings and love stories are on everyone’s mind. This love for the royal family is nothing new though. For decades the public has come to admire what royal weddings embody around the world, especially when it involves an unlikely couple getting together for a fairytale ending.
That’s why I’m loving this visual from Invaluable that shares different and unlikely royal love stories from around the world. No matter their background or social standing, it goes to show just how powerful true love is. From Prince William and Kate Middleton meeting in their college dorm to Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III meeting at a photo shoot, the love stories behind these iconic couples is inspiring to follow, especially during the month of love!
Smooth, glowing skin is something that we all aspire to have. Eating a healthy diet filled with wholesome foods, drinking plenty of water and following a robust skincare regime is essential for clear skin. Unfortunately, even if you’re doing everything right, the pollution and acne-causing bacteria can still cause irritation and blemishes. Luckily, following these simple hygiene tips can help you to combat these negative effects:
Parkour has become increasingly popular in recent years. In October 2016, Parkour was officially recognised as a sport by the UK – the first country in the world to do so. Following this, London has become a hotspot for Traceurs (individuals who practice Parkour) to work on their craft.
Winter is on its way out and Spring is almost here, meaning that London is coming into full bloom. The appeal of warmer weather, an abundance of gorgeous flowers decorating the busy streets and the promise of longer days all make our city incredibly popular in Spring – just make sure you know how to deal with lily pollen stains if you’re heading for the parks!
Whenever you’re heading to London, it’s always a good idea to get some tips from someone who knows it well before you go. This is where I come in! As a Londoner, I’ve put together some of my top tips to help you make the most of your city break.
Avoid Rush Hour
If you’re travelling on the tube, bus, train or any other kind of transport, always, always avoid rush hour when you can. These times tend to be from between 7.30AM-9AM and 4.30PM-6.00PM. It gets super busy so avoid at all costs!
Plan Your Day
Before heading out, make sure you’ve planned everything. The places you’re visiting, the right tubes to get there, food places nearby – knowing what you’re doing and when will make your days a whole lot smoother.
Get an Oyster Card
If you’re planning on using the tubes and buses, definitely get an Oyster card. They make travel much easier and will save you a whole lot of both time and money! Head to a tube station to pick one up for free.
Buses Don’t Accept Cash
Our city buses are completely cashless, meaning that if you want to hop on you’re going to need either an Oyster card or a debit or credit card that uses contactless payment. We really are living in the future over here!
A Free Day Out
If you want to save some cash, there are plenty of things that won’t cost you anything in London. Pop to museums such as The Natural History Museum, The Science Museum or The Victoria and Albert Museum which are all free. If you’re lucky and the weather is good, take a stroll in a park. There are a lot to choose from: Hyde Park, Regents Park, St. James’ Park, just make sure you know how to get rid of lily pollen stains if you’re going in Spring or Summer!
We’re Not Big Tippers
Sometimes a tip will be included in the bill in London, but if not then around 15% should be okay. Staff won’t get offended if you don’t leave an exact percentage, though. A restaurant meal is the only time you should always tip, really – they won’t expect it in a bar, taxi or café, though it can be nice if you’ve received good service.
Avoid Shopping on Saturday
I would definitely stay clear of Oxford Street and Regent Street on a Saturday if you can help it. It gets super busy and your relaxing shopping trip will turn into more of a crazy ordeal. Check out quitter places like Redchurch street in Shoreditch for some quirky shopping spots you won’t find anywhere else!
Travel on a Bike
Boris Bikes are a cheap, eco-friendly and fun way to get around London. You can rent a bike from one of the many docks scattered around London and then pop it back into another one when you’re done.
Check Out Markets
We have loads of great markets that are on throughout the week, including in Camden and Brick Lane – two hot spots for lovers of all things alternative and indie. Check them out online and find one that appeals to you, whether you’re more into fine food, stylish clothing or quirky finds!
Places to Explore
If you’re in need of some inspiration of places to explore, here are a few popular areas of London that could be right up your street:
• Notting Hill
• Covent Garden
Don’t forget to take lots of pictures and enjoy your trip!

Today I am sharing with you one of my most favourite poems:
Lord, when I die, please let it be in Spring, 🌷
Let me see the swallows and hear a robin sing; 🐦
Help me to my window to see a butterfly 🦋
And watch the dreamy spiral of a lark up in the sky. 🦅
Let me hear the bleating of a new born baby lamb, 🐑
The gurgling of the water as it overflows the dam; 💦
The busy, busy buzzing of the ever active bees 🐝
And gentle sound of breezes whispering in the trees. 🌲
Let me enjoy the scent of spring when it comes to my last day
For that will give me pleasure as I gently slip away.
And may the last thing that I see be a little baby’s smile: 👶
For all these things have made my stay on this old earth worthwhile.
An Englishman’s Prayer 🙏

The Makeup industry has evolved a lot in the past few years, and standards of makeup perfection are very high. There are various makeup products available in the market, starting from eyelash curlers to highlighters, which have made makeup choice even complex.
Makeup is an art that one can learn.
But not everyone has the understanding of right makeup choices, applying techniques and makeover choices.
So, I am here with some simple makeup tricks and hacks that will make your life easier.
There is a variety of liners available in the market. Basically, liners are divided into three categories:
The pencil liner works best for the beginners because of its good grip.
However, liquid liners are more for professional use for thin, winged, sleek looks, whereas gel liners are the darkest and highly pigmented liners. I love the result of gel liners the most but gel liners are typically available in very few colours. To go crazy with different colours and texture of gel liner. I transform my coloured pencil liner into gel liner by simply introducing its tip to the flame for a few seconds. Let it cool, apply and see the change in consistency of the product in front of your eyes.
Make your Eyeshadow Shade Pop:
Many of us use primer and concealers to make our eyeshadow stay for a longer time period and to make its colour pop out. But what if you missed out your concealer? Well, don’t worry – the next hack is for you!
Do you have a white eyeliner? Yes. Great!
White eyeliner is a versatile product that can help you resolve many makeup problems. Well in this situation you can use your white eyeliner to cover your eyelid and blend a little. The opaque consistency of the white eyeliner will help sheer or less pigmented eyeshadow look more colourful on the eyelid. In addition to this, due to its high consistency it provides eyeshadow a base to stick properly. Know more about white eyeliner here.
Revive Your Eye Makeup:
Eye makeup products such as mascara or liner have a life of 6 months. But sometimes these products dry out really fast. Plumping mascara or liner tube is one of the reasons too. Well, to make them stay wet for longer, you can use a few drops of eye drops or saline solution instead of alcohol because they are friendlier to eyes. If you do not have eye drops we have another tip for you. Dip your mascara tube in a bowl filled with hot water for at least 10-15 minutes. This will also help you revive your dried mascara or liner. Find some amazing mascaras on this post.
Make your Customized Lipstick:
There are several makeup brands with numerous lipstick shades but there are times when you are not able to find perfect shade that you want or require. By using loose makeup colour pigments and Vaseline you can create your own lip colour. The benefit of this technique is you have control over the consistency of colour. Similarly, you can make tinted lip balms by replacing Vaseline with bees wax and coconut oil.
Avoid Peach Fuzz:
Always apply makeup with downward stroke because most of us have facial hairs and they usually grow downwards. Applying makeup with upward strokes will make your facial hairs standout.
Applying concealer with multiple strokes is not enough. If you apply your concealer in a triangular shape under your eyes, between your nose and cheek bones it will sculpt your face, blend well and less countering will be required. In addition to this, people who are suffering for breakouts can check concealers for covering pimples and acne scars here.
Well there are times when you fall short of makeup items and you think there is no way out. But let me tell you one tip that can save you when you do not have your liner with yourself. Take your liner brush and a mascara tube, open it and make sure that the wand contains enough product. Dab your liner brush on the wand and you are good to go.
The simplest and easiest way to have younger looking skin is staying hydrated. Our body requires water to drain out toxins from our body, which not only cleanse our body from the inside but we can also see it’s reflection inside out.
Like your lipstick’s shade but do not want to go glossy? Turn your glossy lipstick into matte. Apply your lipstick and hold a tissue paper between your lips. It will soak any excessive moisture. Now take face powder and by the help of brush, apply a thin coat of powder on your lips. Do not apply too much and you have the matte lips in the same shade that you love.
