Happy St. Patrick's Day!

As with all occasions, St. Patrick's Day bought out the nail artist in me for my nail blog and I quickly whipped out these cream and green bad boys for the celebrations of Irish-ness and Guinness...

I'm not going to lie, I have absolutely no idea what St. Patrick's Day is even about, but I just know that the English and Americans go crazy for it - apparently more so than the Irish themselves!

Head over to my nail blog, The Nailphile, to see more of my art and FOLLOW if you can, I update with new nails 2-3 times a week! I'm also on Instagram: @thenailphileUK.

Speaking of instagram, here are a few of my favourite #stpatricksday photos!

How's your St. Patrick's Day Been?
I might go have a bailey's now...

Top 5 Comfort Travel Trainers

"Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world"
- Marilyn Monroe
Sensible footwear was one of the first things that popped into my head while writing my 'to-buy' list for my Europe trip and I went straight online in my search to find comfy, supportive footwear to wear on my travels; let's face it - we're not going to be doing it in Louboutins!

     1. Adidas Originals

My brother was the one who recommended Adidas trainers to me and said they were the comfiest he owns; as he is a trainer fanatic and has over 20 pairs I thought I should take his word for it.
I've been looking for black or neutral colours so that my trainers match my outfits, and these Rita Ora French Bulldog Print ZX Flux Trainers from ASOS are perfect.
At £72.00, they're still affordable and you know that they'll be comfy and support your feet, as well as having super cute puppies on them!

     2. Nike Cherry Blossom

Nike Cherry Blossom are a new beautiful range of trainers by Nike which make clumpy trainers feminine and girly. They have used this Cherry Blossom print on all of their classic trainer shapes, but my favourites are the Air Max Thea White University Blue Cherry Blossom pair. At £94.99 from Office, these are quite expensive but unique and they will definitely be comfortable for hours on end on your feet.

     3. Converse All Star's

The Classy Classics. I absolutely adore converse and mine have always been so comfortable and they last ages. Apart from their lack of support, there's not much to say that's bad about them! They're also only £45 and readily available in most sports stores - which is great!

     4. ASOS Dynasty Lace Up Trainers

If you're on a budget for new trainers, ASOS own brand trainers are perfect. They are styled to look like the main brands but on a much cheaper and affordable platform. These are only £25, which is way over half price of most of the shoes in the more popular shoe brands and just as comfortable.

     5. New Balance Originals

New Balance are a new brand for me and haven't been in fashion very long here in the UK despite the fact that the company has been around for over one hundred years. At first I thought they were a bit dorky and weird ... but then I tried them on.
They are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever had the honour of wearing and I knew I needed a pair straight away. 
These are the pair, the ones, and I will be wearing them non-stop for 1 month ...
and I am thrilled about it.
Especially on sale at £59.00 instead of £65.00 on the New Balance Website!

What do you all think of these trainers,
Any other brand suggestions?

Rucksack's at the Ready...

I get it... I suck at blogging about my life and all the boring things in it like the cake I baked last week or the healthy meal I forced myself to eat and all the things that everyone else blogs about so I thought I had to blog about myself, but now I have something that I feel is worth writing about and will be personal and relateable at the same time...
I cannot even explain in words how excited I am...

Come the 15th May, Hollie and I will be off on our travels for one month with our Interrail tickets in our hands and our rucksacks on our backs.
We bought our tickets today through the website, and even got 15% off as we're travelling before the 16th May!
Definitely worth looking in to if you're considering backpacking around Europe...
We also opted to insure the tickets for £10, which will be worth it as it will cost a hell of a lot more if they are lost or stolen along the way!

The Interrail Planner is an extremely useful app that I recommend you all to use (although it could do with a bit of tweaking) and we have used it online to plan our journey...
and it's great for my terrible geography skills too!
It also means we can share our journey with you if you click here and you can use it for inspiration and edit your own trip around it too!

{London  >  Brussels  >  Amsterdam  >  Berlin  >  Prague  >  Kraków  >  Budapest  >  Zagreb  >  Split  >  Vienna  >  Venice  >  Zürich  >  Paris  >  London}

So, that's my little starter to get me back into blogging about GOOD things and you know there will be much more to come...
I'm so so excited to share it all with you!

What are your travel plans for this summer?

Love, May x
