Travel: UK Roadtrip / Scotland

Hi guys,

This is going to be a relly long post full of pictures, we took so many on this trip.

We first started off in London, stayed in my favorite part of the city, Camden. I can`t even say what I love more, beautiful architecture in a busy city or raw nature.
Next stop was Liverpool, we travelled there with National Express and it was a 5 hour ride which was quite nice and comfortable. I love the city, went back to the cathedral, you may remember it from last summer, which is one of my favorite buildings of all time. After a crazy night out with some of my best friends, we took the train to Manchester and spent my boyfriends birthday there before we would depart to Edinburgh the next day. Such a beautiful place, a bit too touristic but the oldtown is a must see. I don`t wanna know how many tourists are there in summer, it was April when we visited and it was already crazy crowded. I do recommend not to pay the ridiculous price they want to visit Edinburgh Castle, there are many much cheaper Castles in the highlands and if you`ve been in one you`ve seen all, they are all quite similar on the inside.
The next day we drove all the way up to Oban, visited Stirling and Loch Lomond on the way. Such a cute little fishermans village, if you ever got the chance to stop there please do. From the colosseum on top you got an amazing view and the shore is a must see. If you fancy seafood, buy some from the fisherman at the port, its all really fresh and according to my other half tastes delicious.
We really wanted to see the Harry Potter Viaduct but accidently forgot to check where it is, before we realised we drove past it and had to stop to climb the hills next to it. It was so worth it, don`t take the normal path but walk on the either side of the viaduct all the way up the hill behind it and you will get a view you only have to share with some photographers.
The ferry in Mallaigh brought us on the Isle of Skye, and that place is exactly how you imagine Scotland to be. We had perfect weather, it never rained but sometimes was dark cloudy and that was absolutely perfect for pictures! The drive to Eilean Donan Castle, called the Gateway to Skye, is really worth it and I was really glad that we chose to enter the Island via the ferry and exit it via the bridge so we were able to experience both ways. The Castle itself is a must see, its cheaper than other ones to enter but its also quite sadly restorated, it looks nothing like it probably had a few hundred years back. When we got to Loch Ness we were really surprised that the visitor center and all the attractions were based miles away from the actual Loch, we could`nt find a place to actually get down to the lake itself. Its pitch black , but don`t expect too much from it cause we were quite disappointed.
To end our trip we stayed a night in a Hotel in Inverness, the capital of the highlands. The city itself was quite boring after all the Things we`ve seen before on this trip, but it was a nice place to just relax and slowly come back to reality.

Many told us that we would not have enough time to see and enjoy everything we wanted, but actually I felt like we had and its definately possible to have the full experience in under a week in scotland.

Are you going on a trip through the UK too or do you have any questions? Feel free to leave your opinion in the comment section!

I`m just here to become the best yet

Hi guys,

Gosh my life is going crazy atm and Im busy all the time, I got so many photos I wanted to show you but just never got time to upload them!

So here`s a nerdy Outfit, feauturing my favorite poets Poem "The Raven" on my Shirt.

  And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
    And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
    And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
            Shall be lifted—nevermore!

Beauty Special: Lush Easter 2017

Hi guys,

Are you exited for easter? I don`t celebrate the Holiday but I`m craving for the sweets and special products coming around during that period of the year. So does Lush and I was able to test some of them, as always they are quite fancy.



A purple colored shower gel with an amazing smell, quite sweet but with the perfect note of herbs. It cleans really well and it also works really well as a gift, you definately can`t go wrong with this one!




Wash behind your ears Shower Gel

This one was really surprising at first, cause it actually turns your skin orange during the first few seconds. It will wash away but I was quite shocked when I used it and was completly orange before I washed it off. It smells like easter, fresh, a bit like spring but with a veggie note.




Ok this was love at first sight. Im obsessed with Lush`s Lip Scrubs and who can resist chocolate? I must confess I always end up using more than I should to eat it, but it works wonders on dry lips to remove the little pieces of skin and it tastes like heaven.



Which came first? Bath Bomb

At first it looks like a normal bathbomb, but if you crack it up or put it into water it will show you whats inside - a little chicken! Such a cute idea, it smells amazing and as always, it turns your bath water into a beautiful unicorn pool.



Thanks to Lush*!

Kisses,

We'll catch alight and we'll make you listen

Hi guys,

How are you all?

I`m incredibly busy right now, but you know what?
Friday I will finally be on the road again. Where my soul belongs, in a car somewhere new, exploring the unknown. This time its scotland, beautiful landscapes, whiskey and hopefully a place to slow down for a bit. My first bigger trip this year, I`m so looking forward to it cause the last few months I felt like a drug addict who only gets a sip every few months but the real deal isn`t reachable.
I will take as many photos as possible, got more equipment with me than ever and a motivated photographer by my side.

PS: Let`s all appreciate this beautiful skirt for a second, isn`t it just stunning?!
