'beerbongs & bentleys' is the title of Post Malone's second album that released last April.


Immediately after the album was released I loved all the songs on the album. It is so rare nowadays to find an album where you love every single song but Post Malone done it. Many songs also featured some amazing artists including Nicki Minaj and 21 Savage. 

My Top Three Songs From 'beerbongs & bentleys'

1. Sugar Wraith

2. Stay

3. Rich & Sad

(but it's really hard to pick top three tbh)


As soon as the album came out I knew I wanted to see Post Malone live on this album tour so I signed up for the pre-sale and purchased tickets for London O2 Arena. 

I hadn't seen Post Malone before and I was so so excited to finally see him. I really wanted to see him at Reading Festival last year, but I couldn't go that weekend because I was on holiday with my family :(


So I headed up to the O2 arena with my sister (Nancy) and two of my best friends (Hannah and Hollie). Nancy and I arrived at the O2 early because I headed straight to London from Uni so we had dinner there before Hannah and Hollie arrived. I had previously planned to treat Nancy to a Nandos before the concert but the queue for Nandos was ridiculously long and there was no way we were waiting that long for peri peri chicken and halloumi.

Actually the next day I saw on Twitter @meggoulding1 said "As if nandos at the o2 had to shut at 4pm because Post Malone ordered over £1000 of food..." So I guess that's why. So instead we went to Wasabi and ate two delicious katsu curries.  


After food we headed to the merchandise store to buy two tour t-shirts. Then we met Hannah and Hollie, bought drinks and went into the arena. 


I purchased four tickets that were seated because you have to be over 16 to be in standing and my sister is only 14. I tried to choose the best seats I could so I chose lower level on the right. I would've preferred to be not so far in the middle but we still had a really good view and the atmosphere was so  great - no one was seated once Post Malone came out.


There were three support acts for Post Malone. DJ E Nice, Tyla Yaweh and Roddy Rich. I hadn't heard of them before but they were really good! I particularly loved DJ E-Nice and Tyla Yaweh's set - you should definitely check out She Bad by Tyla Yaweh.

The setlist was amazing! He included a mix of all his best songs across both of his albums.

Post Malone is a genius and is so talented. He creates such unique music and his unique, fun personality comes through when he is performing live. I think it's incredible when an artist can entertain huge crowds on stage without any backing singers or dancers; particularly during his acoustic performance of Stay when it was just him and a guitar.


Post Malone is definitely on my list of people I want to see again live over and over again.

Apologises for the creases but I am going to share a few products and ways to have an amazing beauty sleep including a few beautiful gifted silk pillowcases.


Silk Pillowcases

Luckily I was gifted two beautiful silk pillowcases by two amazing companies; Alaska Bear (Pink) and Dormibene (Ivory). Silk pillowcases not only look so cute and boujee, but they have so many amazing benefits for your skin, hair and sleep.

Benefits of Silk Pillowcases:

1. 100% pure mulberry silk is completely natural
2. No bed creases on your skin
3. No bed hair
4. Prevents split ends/hair breakage
5. No more greasy due to the reduced pollution of sebum
6. Retains moisture while you sleep (cotton pillowcases absorb your face cream)
7. Hypoallergic - resistant to bed mites and good for skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea
8. Anti-ageing stimulates skin cell renewal 
9. Regulates temperature for a better nights sleep
10. Soft and comfortable for a perfect sleep

I have already felt and seen a difference in my skins complexion. The pillowcases are so soft and silky, plus they look so cute on my bed.


Earrings Out

I think this is pretty obvious but it's such a good idea to take your earrings out before you sleep - especially if you're sleeping on a silk pillowcase so the material doesn't catch. It also means that you'll have a more comfortable sleep.


No-dent Hair Ties

Invisibobble and Popband have created these new types of hair bands.These are some great hair ties that don't damage your hair. It's a great idea to sleep with you hair tied back to reduce excess oil on your face at night, but using bobbles can often damage your hair but if you use these hair ties then your hair will stay in amazing condition.



Ok so this night cream is very expensiveeee. I received this a Glossybox a few months ago and I have been using it since and I LOVE it. Unfortunately I don't have the funds to repurchase and not sure I would ever spend so much on a night cream but it was such a lovely product to receive and try out. Obviously if you can afford the price tag then it is definitely worth a look at. 


Overall these products are a few things that can give you an amazing beauty sleep to improve your skin, hair and sleep routine.

Have you been thinking about doing something a little different with your life lately? Or have you found yourself not quite feeling the same over these last few months? If either of these options is the case for you, then you might want to consider changing your path in order to live your best life. You might not be sure how you can start this process, but I have come up with a few ideas for you. So, keep reading if you are interested in finding out how changing your path might lead you into your very best life.


A New Career

The first thing that you might want to think about is changing up your career. If you are stuck in a job that you don't like, there are ways that you can change this. Start applying for new jobs that you haven't tried, and might be a little out of your comfort zone. Many people don't do this even if they want to because they think that no employment will hire them. A lot of people looking for new staff offer training, and even those who don't sometimes take a chance on a candidate who has applied for their business if they think they could be an asset. Taking the shot is always going to be better than wondering what if.

Further Education

Or, you might want to think about getting some more education. You are never too old to learn something new and that is something that you should always remember. Expanding your horizons and going back to education is a great idea if you are looking for a new direction in life. Institutions like city college London have some great programs that you can study! There is no reason for you not to take this chance if you want to learn something, never let fear stop you from taking on a challenge. You never know, it could be what you were born to do!

Travel The World

Have you ever had the opportunity to travel the world? Do you want to? A lot of the time we are brought down by the things that we cannot do, but if you are looking for a new direction to take your life in then, this could be the way forward. Experience some of the things that other countries have to offer, their culture, their food, their way of life and so on. It is something that not many people get to do, and it would be an amazing experience!

I hope that you have found this article helpful, and now have a few ideas regarding how you can change your path to lead to your new best life!

I spent my Sunday creating beautiful, vegan beauty products, including a plumping lip balm, a leave-in conditioner, a lip scrub, an anti-cellulite body scrub and a body butter, with my mum and sister thanks to Midas Touch Crafts


My mum is a Groupon addict. She is literally obsessed. Massages, workshops, eating out, cocktails, cinema nights, health plans, products for the home, hairdressers, nails - you name it - she's bought it from Groupon. Groupon has so many amazing deals for experiences and products and I think my mum has converted me to become obsessed too. Also I'd like to add this is not a sponsored post at all, what with the new sponsored post guidelines and all... I just really like Groupon haha. 

Anyway a while back for my sister Nancy's birthday, my mum treated her to tickets for a Natural Beauty Products Workshop with Midas Touch Crafts from Groupon. As I was home for the weekend from University, I tagged along too and I was so happy I did. 

Midas Touch Crafts describes themselves as...

"...combining the fun of crafting with mindfulness and socializing - the difference that difference makes..."


The workshop is available to attend in several locations including Southwark, Hampstead and Beckenham (London). Midas Touch Crafts is a non-profit organisation, and the price of the workshops are so affordable and brilliant value for money. The money you spend on the tickets goes towards the resources and ingredients needed, and the rest goes to charity. Naz Midas is the owner of Midas Touch Crafts. She is so fun, bubbly and full of knowledge which makes the class so enjoyable. 


We arrived 5 minutes early for the workshop and were welcomed into the hall. Tables and chairs were set up with all the ingredients and products we needed, and we sat down and met some others who were seated at our table. The workshops are a lovely way to meet and socialise with new people. 


After an introductory talk we were told to help ourselves to coffee, tea, biscuits, fruit, chocolate and Krispy Kreme doughnuts provided at the side of the hall, and all proceeds go to charity. We grabbed a coffee and some fruit, and we were ready to get crafting. 


Naz spoke to us about the importance of natural products, and each ingredient's benefits and uses was discussed. This was so interesting to hear and I was blown away by how some simple, everyday, ingredients can be used to make amazing natural beauty products. 

The first product we made was a plumping lip balm. We were given a choice on how we wanted the balm to turn out. Whether we wanted to add certain ingredients to make a shiny or matte balm, or even add some ingredients to give the balm a plumping quality. I decided to use ground cacao nibs as my flavouring and coconut oil - so ultimately I created a bounty flavoured lip balm. The wax used was Soya Wax which holds fragrance and flavour incredibly well - it's natural and has a smooth consistency too. Overall my lip balm came out so well - I was so happy. The lip balm tastes amazing and feels incredibly moisturising, plus I can feel the plumping quality!


The next product we made was a lip scrub. To pair up with the previous lip balm I had made, I used ground cacao nibs as my flavouring. 

We also made a leave-in conditioner, a body butter and an anti-cellulite body scrub.



All of the products came out so well, I was so impressed. Clearly Naz's expertise, knowledge and recipes are well put together and are so easy to understand and follow.

After the workshop we were able to take all of our products that we'd made home to use and enjoy. Naz also ensured an email was sent out containing all of the information we'd heard during the day, plus some extra beauty product recipes to try at home.

After the workshop, my sister, mum and I walked around Borough Market and London Bridge for a while. We had lunch in Nando's (standard) and had a look in a few shops before coming home.






I had such a lovely Sunday and I would certainly recommend for anyone to have a go at one of the Midas Touch Crafts Workshops. There are so many different workshops available, and I would love to complete another one soon.

You don't have to have reached a certain age to create a bucket list, in fact if you haven't settled down into a job you love or have a family to keep you static, then now is great time to start ticking things off that list.


Whatever you've written on there we'd take a bet that travel is one of those things that features high up that list. You could go anywhere in the world, so where should you start? Obviously, you'll begin by reviewing some of the travel experiences and recommendations of your favourite lifestyle bloggers but after that, the world's your oyster. If you're determined to see a little more of the world but aren't sure where to begin, we have a guide to get you going. 

Cast your mind back to your school days. Were you one of those lucky students that got to go on a school trip to Russia or skiing in the French Alps? How about revisiting one of those countries and see how much has changed or how your skiing has improved? If the cold and snow of these two destinations doesn't appeal, then consider starting your global odyssey in somewhere like South East Asia. Starting in Singapore and then heading off out to places like Bangkok in Thailand, Hanoi in Vietnam and the beautiful Melaka in Malaysia.

Head South

With Singapore as your half way point you can then continue onwards to the Southern Hemisphere and hang out in Australia and New Zealand for a while, picking up a car and travelling across country. At the point, if your finances are running a bit low, you'll be able to find some work fruit picking or other jobs that are open to travellers visiting the country.

Once you're fully saved up, it's time to say goodbye to Australia and head back to Europe via a stopover in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Europe-bound

Where to start om Europe? How about at the top and work down? Start with the stunningly beautiful Norway and then decide whether you want to head into central countries or explore the likes of the Ukraine and Belarus. Heading down through Denmark and into Germany, spend a few days in Berlin visiting the amazing museums before heading into France to soak up some Parisian culture and of course take a trip to The Louvre, Champs Elysee and stunning Eiffel Tower.

Make Italy your next stop. This stunning country varies in character from region to region. Work your way to Florence for the architecture and art, and then back up the east coast and hop on a ferry over to the Croatia peninsula. 

If you're running out of time, zig-zag over to Spain and spend a day or two in Madrid before you decide to press on towards Morocco or spend a few more days in neighbouring Portugal. 

Opting for Morocco you'll love the buzz and feel of the markets and the people and enjoy soaking up the culture of this North African city. If you can tear yourself away, then make your next stop Eygpt. Though so many of the artefacts have been lost or robbed in recent years, you'll still be able to take a tour around the Valley of The Kings and be wowed by the powerful River Nile and ancient city of Alexandria.

Why not make the last leg of your tour one to remember with some pampering, shopping and luxury courtesy of Dubai? Head over to this city in the sand for malls, the world's tallest building and all the beaches and sea you could want.

Check into one of the exquisite hotels and take in some of the breath-taking cultural events and shows that Dubai has to offer its tourists.

Then maybe, just maybe, it's time to head home. What a few months you've had and squeezed in so much. From the place where the ancient rulers of Egypt were buried to the amazing street food culture of Jonker Street in Melaka, you've seen it and done it all.

That bucket list has taken a serious beating but there's plenty more to see and do. It's time to get planning again and figure out what's next. Will it be another world tour or was there a country you fell in love with and would love to go back and work in? Perhaps it's time to settle down and get a pet, whatever you do next, make it amazing and don't let anything hold you back.

Heading down through Denmark and into Germany, spend a few days in Berlin visiting the amazing museums before heading into France to soak up some Parisian culture and of course take a trip to The Louvre, Champs Elysee and stunning Eiffel Tower.

Make Italy your next stop. This stunning country varies in character from region to region. Work your way to Florence for the architecture and art, and then back up the east coast and hop on a ferry over to the Croatia peninsula. 

If you're running out of time, zig-zag over to Spain and spend a day or two in Madrid before you decide to press on towards Morocco or spend a few more days in neighbouring Portugal. 

Opting for Morocco you'll love the buzz and feel of the markets and the people and enjoy soaking up the culture of this North African city. If you can tear yourself away, then make your next stop Eygpt. Though so many of the artefacts have been lost or robbed in recent years, you'll still be able to take a tour around the Valley of The Kings and be wowed by the powerful River Nile and ancient city of Alexandria.

Why not make the last leg of your tour one to remember with some pampering, shopping and luxury courtesy of Dubai? Head over to this city in the sand for malls, the world's tallest building and all the beaches and sea you could want.

Check into one of the exquisite hotels and take in some of the breath-taking cultural events and shows that Dubai has to offer its tourists.

Then maybe, just maybe, it's time to head home. What a few months you've had and squeezed in so much. From the place where the ancient rulers of Egypt were buried to the amazing street food culture of Jonker Street in Melaka, you've seen it and done it all.

That bucket list has taken a serious beating but there's plenty more to see and do. It's time to get planning again and figure out what's next. Will it be another world tour or was there a country you fell in love with and would love to go back and work in? Perhaps it's time to settle down and get a pet, whatever you do next, make it amazing and don't let anything hold you back.
