Wanderlust.

'wanderlust- 
noun
a strong desire to travel.'

There's something about the cultures, the time zones, the beauty and the idea of escaping that consumes my mind each and everyday. The ability to wake up in a different setting each and everyday, living within your own novel in which you are the protagonist, writing the story for yourself. 
And this feeling, the one we call wanderlust, has the ability to create endless short stories in which we document through our pictures, through our blog's and through our memories.
I'm still discovering corners of beauty in my home town, the infinite beauty of the world surrounds us, you just have to look a little harder. Every insect, flower, person, building and even clothing has its own story's to tell of how it came to be and the events it has witnessed. I envy the bird ,however, they have the ability to take off whenever they want and explore the world to as far as it can fly, battling obstacles upon its journey, fighting the wind and searching for food. It all just seems so exciting and scary. Yet it seems to be a fantasy the birds take for granted.
though, I'm sure if you asked one, they'd more than likely trade a roof for a bed when it comes to sleep.
However, with everything considered i still have this yearning impulse to grab a map, have a mini game of pin the tail on the donkey with it, and spontaneously visit and emerge my self in the culture and people of a place. To pack the bare essentials and fly place to place, with nothing stopping you or pulling you down. To create stories to tell for years to come, to make new friends and learn so much .

Alas, i am 14. Thus, there is 6 things preventing my epic desire to travel-

1. As i have said i am 14
2. Meaning i have to stay in education 
3. Meaning i have to go to school 
4. Meaning i don't have a job 
5. Meaning i don't have money 
6. Meaning i cannot afford, or legally purse my wanderlust.

Not yet anyway.
So here's to the future, to following your dreams. Not everything must be a simple fraction of your imagination, if you want it- make it happen.

Victoria secret fragrance mist.


Whilst in the Trafford centre on Saturday, i happened to pop into Victoria Secret's to see what all the fuss about their sprays was about...
I left with 3 sprays and 2 body washes (it was 5 for £30 i couldn't help myself!).
The 3 sprays i picked up are Escape , Paradise and Beach. I love the packaging on them, how they all have cute little backgrounds that match the colour of the spray; the spray lid is adorable ,glittery gold, and i love the shape of the bottle as it has really good grip as apposed to Hollister body sprays and boots' range.
The mists all have Aloe Vera in them that allows you to smell amazing but have your skin being conditioned at the same time!
Escape is 'Dragon fruit & amber' but to me it smells a little bit like fresh flower, it just reminds me of summer. Out of all three, this one has to be my favourite as it just reminds me of so many memories ( cheesy and unbelievable right?) of summer. It is also my favourite packaging out of the three.
Beach smells exactly like its name, The Beach! its described to be scened with 'cactus blooms & sea salt'. At first, i thought the scent would be very strong and over powering, but i think its just right!
Paradise is described as 'coconut water & star fruit'. The only way i can describe this scent is a tropical island in the blazing hot sun ( Paradise!).

As you can tell i went for very summer-y styled scents as it is approaching summer and i just think summer scents are amazing.

Have you tried any of the Victoria Secret's Mists?
