Poem of the day - The Road Not Travelled by Robert Frost

The road homeImage by James Jordan via Flickr

Hi all,

Hope you're all having a good bank holiday. This was recommended to me by someone relating to life's big decisions...enjoy!

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Tip of the day - Eyeliners

Hello ladies of the blog!

I hope you're all having a stunning day!

Tip of the day today is, to make cheap eyeliners more blendable, just blast them with a hairdryer for a few seconds before use.

Hope this helps some of you!

Have a great evening!

I'm back and am mostly thinking about holidays!

Hey guys,

Wow, it's been so long since I last did a post! My excuses aren't very exciting to say the least but now I'm in full blogging spirit again :)

Time is going amazingly quickly at the moment and I'm shocked that my holidays are only around the corner...We've managed to find a lovely hotel in a tranquil location with the added bonus of a spa - bliss!

We are visiting Sorrento in Southern Italy which I'm praying will be hotter than here. (It's August and it rained all day - fail).

Has anyone been here? Can they recommend any "must sees" or "must dos"?

Here are some Polyvore outfits inspired by the summer sun, I hope you like them!

Hope you're all having a great week!
