Wednesday wishlist #25

Another week means another wishlist. I'm always reading other people's blogs and getting inspiration for new things to buy myself. Regarding make up, I have a high-end make up wishlist as long as my arm. I treated myself to a Nars foundation recently and I've come to realise that you really do get what you pay for, so I'm going to treat myself every now and then to some more expensive products for my face.

As my love for silver rings has grown, my hate for cheap rings that leave your fingers green has grown. I've started to treat myself to more expensive rings that will last longer and have more meaning. So far I have a couple of Pandora rings, but next on my wishlist is a ring from The Great Frog. I've mentioned them on my blog before, and definitely featured some of their other rings in a wishlist, but this one is a definite favourite currently.

Empty Casket Crescent Moon Lariat Necklace - £9.00 
I've been a huge fan of Empty Casket jewellery for years. Their owner Lucy is so gorgeous (definitely check her out on instagram also @lucymagill_) and their cute witchy jewellery leaves me drooling every time I see a new product being uploaded to the site. I decided to place my first order the other night, for this gorgeous crescent moon necklace. I don't really need any more jewellery as I have loads already, but I loved how different, yet incredibly simple this was. I can't wait to wear it out :)

I only have one Tarte product, which is a blusher I won in a giveaway years ago. I must admit though, I do love it, but I've just never actually looked up any other Tarte products to see what they have on offer. I say this palette on Helen Anderson's July Favourites video, and then went on to watch some tutorials and fell in love a little bit. It has a highlight and bronzer, blusher and eyeshadows all in a really cute little palette with a mirror. I can't seem to find where to buy it in the UK though, so if you know then please let me know!

Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream - £25.50
I've been after an eye cream for a little while now and I've heard nothing but good things about this product. I use lots of Benefit make up but I've never tried a skincare product so I'll definitely be trying this out next time I'm at a counter!
I've said this before, but I only really tend to shop in Topshop if it's something that I really think is worth the money. Their stuff is always good quality so £12 for a basic top is a good buy as it won't shrink and have to be thrown away after one wear like some cheaper stores, but I can never really let myself spend £50 or £60 on a dress. This top though has a really cute detailing and I'll definitely be looking out for it next time I'm in town :)

 Topshop Feline Ankle Tie Sandals - £39.00
I like to get new sandals in the Summer and these ones are lovely. They're a little bit expensive for what they are, so let me know if you see any cheaper versions anywhere else! I love sandals that tie around the ankle though and would really like to find some this Summer.

Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Colour-Morphing Eyeshadow Pencil - £19.00
The shade I'd like this pencil in is 'champagne diamonds'. I can't remember who's blog I saw it on, but it looks like such a quick and easy alternative to eyeshadow. This particular shade is gorgeous too :) 
This corduroy button-up skirt trend is one I've liked for a little while, but I wasn't sure which colour I'd like to go for. I bought a similar tan one from New Look recently in a more suede material and I love it, so I think this burgundy one would be perfect for the colder months. I love a bit of burgundy during Autumn and Winter, and this would look so fab with a black turtle neck sweater.

GoPro Hero4 Camera - £279.99
There's always some sort of gadget on my wishlist, and now that I've saved up for my Macbook - this is next! I've borrowed people's GoPros before and I've definitely decided I need my own. Now that I film 99% of the fun things I do, a GoPro is a must for those adventure and water scenarios.

La Moda Supa Dupa Fly Make Up Bag - £7.99
I've always had a thing for hamsa hands as my mum used to wear a hamsa hand necklace every day when I was growing up, but I've never really been that fussed by the print on any clothing. Saying that though, this month I managed to find a lovely Asos hamsa hand crop top (which I featured in a blog post here) and now I've found this make up bag from La Moda! :)

Thanks for reading :)
Are any of these on your wishlist too?
Love Dani :)

House of Fraser menswear #StyleMelvin

As a Fashion Design graduate, I do love a bit of styling. I was set the challenge by House of Fraser to style one of two men who are 'undateables' and unlucky in love. I had to choose either Melvin or Jarrod and style them up for a date. Due to the fact he has a beard and is wearing a grandad jumper, I obviously chose to style Melvin. If you'd like to take part in this blogger challenge also, you can read the full details here

I have chosen to style Melvin for a first date of dinner then drinks. His Tinder description said that he's a keen traveller after a harem-pant-wearing hottie, so I don't think he'd want to go to a posh restaurant anyways, but I've dressed him as though he'd be treating her to a yummy meal and milkshake at an American diner, followed by some cocktails at a quirky bar. I've gone for a smart/casual look - more dressed up than your usual look but not a full-on suit.

I decided to choose black denim as it's a casual alternative to trousers but it can still look smart. The burgundy shirt looks super comfy and would look fab with the brown accessories. I also love burgundy and navy together so I've added in some navy in the desert boots and checkered boxers. I've treated Melvin to a new wallet and some expensive new cologne for his first date, that he can continue using for a long time afterwards. (Hopefully the date goes well, as the smell of the cologne will probably remind him of it!) Lastly, I've had to include an umbrella, as you never know what the weather is going to be like here in England, and he has to be prepared to keep himself, and his lady friend, dry if the rain comes!

Thanks for reading :)
Would you be impressed if your first date showed up wearing this outfit?
All products were picked from the House of Fraser menswear section.

I've just made myself a naughty little order, but I thought I would share with you guys some of my top picks from the website, as I have just spent a couple of hours browsing through it! :)

Thanks for reading :)
Do you like any of my picks?

Father's Day gift ideas!

It's just a few days left until Father's Day so I thought I would compile a little blog post of gift ideas. I wrote a Mother's Day gift ideas blog post back in March so it's only fair I write one for all the Daddy's out there too! I do think sometimes it's harder to buy for men but here are some things I would buy for my dad or boyfriend so I hope it gives you some ideas for your pressies! :)

M&S Pure Cotton Striped Velour Dressing Gown - £59.00
 Everyone needs a dressing gown to be lazy in and it's probably not something that a Dad would buy for themselves, so why not treat yours to a really soft snuggly one!?
Game of Thrones Season 1 DVD - £11.99
If your Dad hasn't seem Game of Thrones yet, then get them started! If your Dad has seen Game of Thrones, then go him! I've been trying to get mine to watch and he still hasn't started! :(

New & Lingwood Stamford Pheasant Print Shirt  - £42.00*
You can never go wrong with getting your Dad a nice new shirt for Father's Day. I'm absolutely loving this Pheasant print one from New & Lingwood, it's so unusual. They have such quirky and original prints, including butterfly, floral, dragonfly and paisley prints!

Grey Squirrel Design Carlsberg Don't Make Dads Card - £2.50
Grey Squirrel Designs make the most awesome cards! I bought my boyfriend a Breaking Bad birthday one from their store before and he loved it - I would definitely check them out for all occasions! :)

Clinique Maximum Hydrator - £32.00 
Just like the dressing gown, I doubt that moisturiser is something that Dad's would buy for themselves, but they'd definitely use if you bought it for them! You could always get them an anti-aging moisturiser as a little treat, if they're not too easily offended haha.

Hotel Chocolat Chocolate & Gin Collection - £20.00

Chocolate and gin as a present? I really don't think you can go wrong with that combination! Hotel Chocolat really does make the yummiest chocolate too!

Lush Kalamazoo Beard And Facial Wash - £6.50 
 Lush is one of my favourite places ever and I love any excuse to shop there. I've actually never tried any of their men's products (on my dad and boyfriend, not on myself) but I'm sure that they're just as fabulous as the girly products. This beard and face wash contains pineapple and almond oil - it sounds lovely!

GrillPro 40269 20-Inch Professional Tong - £32.66
With Summer coming soon (hopefully), basically anything to do with BBQ's and cooking outdoors will be a good Father's Day present. These tongs are a bit of an expensive treat to any Dad that loves being the head of the barbeque, and you could always get a personalised apron to go with them!

Diesel 'Only The Brave Tattoo' 50ml - £41.50
I've actually not smelt that particular eau de parfum, I just love the packaging! But I'm sure you know what your Dad's fave scent is and can get them one of those! Or you could treat him to a brand new scent :)

Thanks for reading :)
Have you got your Father's Day pressie sorted already?
Or are you planning on doing something a little bit different?

Let me know in the comments below :)
Love Dani :)

Wednesday Wishlist #24 - Download festival!

This weekend I'm off to Download festival and I cannot wait! I may have already purchased a couple of these things (they're totally necessary for the festival), but I do have lots of lovely clothes already to wear! There are so many amazing bands playing this year and I can't wait for a long weekend of sun, beer and chilling with friends! Is anyone else off to Download this year? If not, which festivals are you off to? :)

The Lair Leather Jeff Buckley Bag - £293.92
I have been obsessed with this bag ever since I laid eyes on it. Okay so realistically you wouldn't want to take it to a festival with you as it would probably get ruined, but I may have to treat myself to it on a payday soon! I love the Western feel with silver concho detailing - gimmie gimmie gimmie!

Regal Rose Night Chant Coin Suede Necklace - £24.00 
How gorgeous is this necklace?! I have lots of lovely silver necklaces already to layer up for Download, and this black suede one would be a perfect addition to my collection. It goes so perfectly with the bag and belt too!

Topshop Embroidered Square Neck Crop Top - £22.00
I go through stages of being obsessed with Topshop and then avoiding them for a while as their stuff can be quite expensive, but then I find a little gem like this and it makes me remember why I love Topshop again. It's a lovely simple little piece and I love the embroidered details.

Asos Black Ornate Jet Stone Belt - £18.00 
I've actally already bought this belt - I put it in my Asos basket the second I saw it! I've been after a Western or concho style belt for months now, and this is the first non-vintage/non-sold out one I've found!

Sienna X Instant Bronzing Gel - £12.00 
I've been after a good fake tan to use regularly and I've heard a lot of good things about Sienna X recently. Have you ever tried their products? They don't break the bank so I'm definitely going to give them a go! :) Also, do you know of any fake tans that would be particularly good for a festival? It would have to last a few days, not get streaky in rain etc!

New Look White Leather Ankle Strap Sandals - £24.99
I need some new sandals for Summer and these are so simple, yet so lovely. They might not be perfect for Download (the forecast includes lots of rain) but they'd be a great little pair of shoes for the rest of the Summer!

River Island Felt Oversize Fedora Hat - £28.00
Last Summer I got brave enough to start wearing fedora style hats... this Summer should I get brave enough to wear oversized fedora hats?! You can never have too many black floppy felt hats, can you?

Topshop Cherie Cateye Sunglasses - £18.00
Okay so I probably don't need another pair of sunglasses, but I don't have a cateye pair yet, and these are sooo gorgeous! :) I love the intricate little floral detailing in the corner of the frames too!
Dixi Sacred Moon Ring - £28.00 / Dixi Night Wall Fiery Labradorite Ring - £28.00
I've been a fan of Shop Dixi jewellery as long as I can remember, and each collection they bring out is even more gorgeous! I wanna end up with two hands full of their intricate silver and gem rings!

New Look Black Jersey Flared Trousers - £9.99
I've been after a pair of black flares for a little while now and I can't believe how cheap these are! You can wear them all year around - with a leather jacket and fur scarf during the Winter and with an embroidered crop top in the Summer! What are your opinion on flares? At first I wasn't sure, but now I love them! :)

Sunday summary #13

Helloooo! Yet again I can't believe how quickly Sunday has come around and that I have work again tomorrow. I've had a super busy weekend though including Graduate Fashion Week, catching up with old friends and a house party. I'm a bit back-logged with blog posts (I've taken the photos but haven't blogged yet as I've been SO busy) so this post is a little bit of a catch up and preview of what's to come! :)

 Since starting my job I've been treating myself to lots of new beauty products and it's making me want to write lots of beauty blog posts to share my finds! The first of many I recently wrote was my top 5 Mac lipsticks blog posts, let me know what your favourite shade is!
I've recently re-found my love for the Studio Ghibli movies. Spirited Away has always been one of my favourite movies ever but I hadn't watched any of them in so long, it's good to watch them again!
I've decorated my room with these lovely polaroid instagram prints by using the app Printic. You can get £4 off using the code '1D0F1F' :)

 Since starting my new job I've been working in some local areas to my hometown that I'd never really visited before. Who knew Hertfordshire had so many gorgeous floral pubs and hidden canal-side treasures?!
For my auntie's birthday, me and all the ladies in my family went to a gorgeous French restaurant in London called Zedel. The food and atmosphere was incredible, I shall be writing a blog post about it soon!

How gorgeous are these pieces I bought from Waiste Vintage?! Paisley print, mandala print and a gorgeous lantern - what more could you want?!
I'm so happy to have Game of Thrones back on my screen! What have you thought of this series?
This weekend me and my best friend are off to Download festival - I am so excited! Anyone else going too?!

I was lucky enough to get some last minute tickets to the Harry Potter studios recently and it was so good! I'd been once before when my boyfriend used to work there but I don't think I really appreciated how good it was! My favourite bit was Diagon Alley, the steam train and riding on the broom! :)
I've eventually got around to start editing my 100's of videos, and the most recent one I've uploaded is my holiday in Amsterdam, I miss it so much! You can watch it here :)

My lovely friend works in a cake shop and they needed a hand working their new coffee machine, so I swapped my barista skills for some gorgeous cupcakes - what a good trade! I now have a constant craving for red velvet, chocolate orange and oreo cupcakes!
Last weekend I had the most amazing time at GFW! I saw loads of my fashion friends that I hadn't seen since our GFW show, and the year below did an incredible job - so any gorgeous designs. (Yet again, video coming soon - make sure you're subscribed to my channel to see it!)

I literally cannot believe how gorgeous Caitlyn is. I saw this image pop up three times on my instagram timeline before I realised who it was, and she looks so similar to Jessica Lange (a fave of mine from American Horror Story), amazing!
I eventually treated myself to Nars Sheer Glow foundation this week and my gosh, I definitely understand the hype now! I'll get a full review up on the blog soon :)
I've discovered a lovely little cafe that I love to pop in to at lunch time, hot chocolate and rocky road rice krispie cakes are amazing!

Thanks for reading :)
What have you been up to this sunny week?

My top 5 Mac lipsticks! :)

I've been collecting Mac lipsticks for a few years now, and my collection is still relatively small to be honest, but I just love them! I've never really spoken about them before though, so I thought I would compile a blog post of my top 5! I only have a few more than this, but these are my 5 favourite that I wear on a day-to-day basis, although some are obviously more day appropriate than others!

My favourites range from light to dark, and would suit most hair colours and skin tones. I hope you enjoy my collection and it might even inspire you to add some of them to your wishlist! In my opinion, lipsticks are one of the best parts of make up, and can change an outfit or look so dramatically - I literally never leave the house without it!

Honey Love
This was actually the first Mac lipstick I bought, and it's still a favourite. I don't use it as much as I used to, but I'll still use it as a day-to-day lipstick and wear it mixed with other lipsticks too. It's the lightest shade of lipstick that I probably own of all the brands I own, and it's a lovely pale nude.

This is my current favourite Mac lipstick. I've found a lovely lip liner to go with it and have been wearing it on a daily basis! It's a bit darker and browner than the photo shows, more Kylie Jenner-esque! I really wanted to get Velvet Teddy, but with that always being sold out I opted for this, and I'm so glad I did as it suits my skin colour so well!

Please Me
This is the pinkest lipstick I own. Pink as in bright, barbie pink, as I don't really do bright pink... and it's not even that bright! It's a gorgeous shade though for when you want to feel a bit girlier, or you have a floral dress to wear out! It's not so bright though that you can't wear it to work or somewhere you have to look professional, as you can! :)

Lady Danger
I know this lipstick looks super bright in photos, but it also looks this bright in real life too! My best friend bought it for me as a Christmas present one year and I haven't looked back since! As much as I love a cherry red lip, this one looks so perfect with a black eyeliner flick and a leather jacket! It's more of a bright 'pin up' red, with a tinge of orange to it, and I always get compliments on it when I wear it out!

This colour always creeps back into my make-up bag in the Autumn and Winter times. I absolutely love the colour burgundy but I feel it suits my clothes and style more in the colder months. It's a satin finish so doesn't leave your lips dry, and it can be put on really lightly or layered up to create lots of different shades. I personally love a really thick, dark look but some of you may prefer to put only a little bit of this on and blend it out evenly over your lips!

 So that is the end of my top 5 mac lipsticks! :) Three of them are matte, two of them are satin, and all five are just lovely! I'm hoping to expand my Mac lipstick collection some more, so if you can think of any which may suit me then please let me know! I'd like a matte burgundy shade and a darker red in matte also.

Thanks for reading :)
Which is your favourite of my collection?

Personalised little instagram magnets from Sticky9!

If you've been following my blog for a little while now, you'll know I'm an absolute sucker for anything personalised with my instagram photographs. I have a whole wall in my room full of instagram polaroid prints and I've eaten many a personalised photo cake, so when I was asked by Sticky9 if I'd like some of my instagram photographs printed onto magnets for my fridge, I couldn't say no! I picked a few favourite images - some of my family and friends, some of my puppies and some cute quotes.

As soon as they arrived, I was in love. They're the perfect size and really good quality. The colours are nice and bright, and they'll be the perfect little addition to my kitchen! I already can't wait to order some more as I want my fridge to be full of them eventually! They also ship worldwide for free so they're the loveliest gift for yourself or a loved one! :)

They really brighten up a boring, white fridge! I'm planning to order some for my mum's birthday as I know she'd love some photo additions in her new home too! :) When they first come, they're stuck together in a big square so it's up to you if you want to rip them up into three rows, or all into separate squares... either way they look fabulous! If you're interested in getting some for yourself, you can get 15% off your first Sticky9 order with the code 'FRIENDVXQ9' :)

Last minute, I actually realised that I could also have these in my bedroom - they work so perfectly on the edge of my radiator! Sticky9 actually also sell photo prints, stickers and iPhone cases, so I'll probably be making another order sometime soon - I'll definitely be buying some more magnets as they're so cute!

Thanks for reading :)
I'm over at @floraldanielle on instagram if you'd like to follow!

Sunday summary #12!

Yet again it's got to Sunday and I realise I haven't had the time to blog all week! You'll be pleased to know (hopefully) that I've spent today scheduling some blog posts for this week, and I intend to blog at least once a week from now on, despite finding it really difficult to juggle life at the moment! My new job is going really well, although with it being full time I have just evenings and weekends to blog, but once I get home all I wanna do it get into bed and watch Netflix, or go out and see my boyfriend or friends. Then at the weekend, I'm always busy so my blogging is taking a bit of a backseat. I've also joined the gym this weekend, so that's another thing to take up my time, but I do love blogging so I'm gonna try get back into the swing of things! :)

How cute is this personalised wrapping paper?! I've scheduled a full blog post on this coming next week, so keep your eyes peeled! It's such a cute idea though, I will definitely be using the website to get some created for my loved ones :). Despite being super busy, I still find the time to update my Pinterest boards daily. (You can follow me here if you have a Pinterest account too, feel free to link me yours in the comments!) I thought this quote was pretty cute! I'm also getting severe Amsterdam withdrawal symptoms... I definitely think another trip there should be on the cards soon!

Since blogging, I've had a bit of an ikea bedroom makeover. I treated myself to those famous Alex drawers and have all my beauty supplies in one place. They're the best thing in my room at the moment, I just love them! :) I was also super happy by the way the Zoolander 2 Movie was announced last week - by Zoolander and Hansel walking the actual Valentino catwalk at Paris Fashion Week... pure genius! These baby daffodils only mean one thing to me, it's finally Spring! :)
Every single year me and my boyfriend say we'll go to the farm in Spring to see the baby animals, and every single year we forget! Now that I drive again, I decided that we were gonna go this year, and my sister came along too. It was a really funny day, filled with feeding the baby lambs, riding on tractors and taking goat selfies, and I filmed the whole thing so I'll hopefully have that up on my YouTube channel soon :)

I spent a lovely day in London with my friend Ahmed last week. We went to some cool galleries, had some yummy food and some good giggles! Me and my sister surprised my mum to an afternoon tea and champagne for Mother's Day - it was all so delicious and mum loved it! :) We had a few sandwiches each, cheesecake, brownies, scones with jam and clotted cream, banana bread, fruit meringue and unlimited tea!

I'm still discovering some lovely places when I'm out and about for work. Love Lane is a road that I drive down most days, and this cute little heart stone is placed outside a pub. It's funny how there's so many nice places around you but you have no idea unless you explore! My friend Rosie made this fabulous unicorn cake for our friend Daisy's birthday party. Not only was it pink and glittery, but the inside was red velvet!!!

How ridiculously amazing does this photograph of Iceland look?! Another reason I constantly use Pinterest is to pin all those places I intend on travelling to in my lifetime, I better get saving - there's alot of them! This week I went to the first carboot sale of the year and I can't wait for all the carboot sales of Summer! :) I only really got some CD's for my car & Joe got some vinyls, but I'm sure I'll find lots of vintage goodies these next few weeks! I've spent the majority of today tidying my room and photographing for upcoming blog posts - I'm excited to get some fresh content up! :)

This week's favourite song of the week is a cover of Hozier's 'Take Me to Church' by Dan Dore. He's a friend of my cousin's and his YouTube is a mix of hilarious challenges and amazing covers, definitely check him out :)

Thanks for reading :)
I hope you've had a lovely weekend!

Mother's Day gift ideas!

I love being able to treat my mummy, and now that I have a job this is the first time I can treat her in a while! I'm not gonna say what I've bought her yet, as I'm sure she'll read this (Hi Mummy HAHA!), but I'm sure she'll love it either way! Each mum is different, and your mum might want anything from a pair of snuggly slippers to a poster of Marilyn Manson, but I've put together a few things that I know my mum would like, and I'm sure most people wouldn't say no to! :)

I absolutely love this silky, elegant, dusky pink dressing gown! It looks so glam yet cosy and the lace trim cuffs are gorgeous! Make your mumma feel a million dollars with a little silky dressing gown :)

Real Techniques Bold Metals Over Shadow Brush - £15.00
If your mum's into her make up, why not treat her to one of the new Real Techniques brushes from their collection Bold Metals? I've chosen an eyeshadow brush but there is loads to choose from!

KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer in Almond Cream - £379.00
 Okay so obviously most people reading this won't be able to afford to buy their mother's this product for Mother's Day, but it's so lovely that I couldn't not include it in this gift guide! I hope to one day have a KitchenAid, and I'm sure your mum would be absolutely delighted if you turned up with one of these! :)

Lindt Lindor Strawberries & Cream Truffles - £4.89
The plain chocolate versions of these are to die for, so I bet the strawberries and cream flavour are absolutely incredible! If I got these for Mother's Day, I would be one happy bunny!

 Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Candle - £40.00
I've been lusting over a Jo Malone candle for myself, for a few months now (I am probably going to take the plunge next payday), and they are just so gorgeous. They have the loveliest scents and I'm sure you could find the perfect one for your mum! I love the sound of the wild bluebell scent :)

 Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - £19.50
I bought the Elle magazine with a free sample of Benefit's Roller Lash about a month ago, and I seriously haven't looked back since, I just love it! I loved their They're Real mascara, and this one is similar but a lot less thick so would probably be better for your mum too! It really curls the lashes upwards, so if you curl your lashes too, it creates the nicest lash shape!

 Paperchase Mother's Day Card - £2.50
I always go to Paperchase when I'm looking to buy a card for any occasion. They always seem to get it right. Whether you're looking for cute, funny or witty, I'm sure that Paperchase will have the perfect card to make your mum smile.

Pandora Heart Lock & Key Charm - £30.00
I understand that to buy a Pandora charm, you're probably going to need a Pandora bracelet (that is another gift idea though haha) but for this one we're going to pretend that your mum already has one ;) I personally love this heart padlock charm for Mother's Day! :)
How friggin' cute is this basket full of flowers?! As a floral and picnic basket lover, this is literally perfect for me, and I know that my mum would love it too! Flowers are a cliche Mother's Day pressie, but they can also be gorgeous too, particularly if they're in a basket!

Lush always seem to have a product to suit any occasion, and a pampering present for your mum on Mother's Day cannot go wrong. I love the name Yummy Mummy for this product, and it's described as a 'super-scrummy, sweet and floral shower gel' and to me, that sounds delicious!

Thanks for reading :)
Have you got your Mother's Day pressie sorted already?
Or are you planning on doing something a little bit different for her?

The Wanderlust Tag!

I actually don't know if I've ever written a 'tag' post on my blog before, but after stumbling across Abby's tag here (make sure you check out her blog, it's awesome) I knew that I had to do it! I haven't done too much travelling in my lifetime, but I've done a fair bit including some amazing holidays. I also intend to do lots more traveling and ticking off my Bucket List over the next few years so I thought this would be a fun thing to do!

Top of the mountain selfies with Joe!

Q: Where have you travelled to that you would love to visit again?
A: I went to Singapore when I was in Year 7 and my cousins lived out there and it was incredible, I'd love to go there again. I went to Canada to see the same cousins when they lived there but I was about 7 years old and can't remember much from it and I'd love to go to Canada again one day! Just last month I went to Amsterdam and I'm literally itching already to go back!

Q: Where was your first plane to?
A: I actually just had to text my mum to find the answer to this question as I've forgotten. Apparently it was to Majorca when I was three years old :)

Q: You're leaving tomorrow, money is no object, where are you going?
A: If money was no option, I'd love to go on a worldwide trip for as long as I could hack it! Hopefully that would be at least a year, and I would literally go all over! Some of the main places I'd like to go are India, Australia, Thailand, New Zealand, Iceland, Japan and America.

Q: Preferred method of travel: planes, trains or car?
A: I don't really like long car journeys (way too many going to and from university), and trains are pretty boring so I'd have to go with planes as they're the most exciting because I don't go on many planes. Saying that though, planes are definitely the most scary!

Q: Top three travel items? 
A: 1 - A camera! You need to document those memories :) I have my own but if it's somewhere wet or crowded definitely Joe's GoPro!
    2 - Sunglasses, if it's somewhere sunny of course! I love an excuse to wear my sunglasses!
    3 -  Passport & money?! That's just me saying the essentials and being boring but this question is quite hard haha! I'd also like to say Joe, I like having him around!

Q: Favourite travel website?
A: I absolutely love watching Fun for Louis on YouTube and following him on instagram as he is literally always doing the most amazing things! He's basically on a permanent gap year and I'm very jealous! 

Since reading Abby's tag also, I came across her favourite travel blog which is Traveling Triplets and I have since followed them and become slightly obsessed! They're super cool triplets who travel together and blog about their adventures!

Q: Where would you travel to just to eat the food?
A: Definitely Italy. My dad has just come back from Rome and I was literally drooling over the sound of the meals they had when they were out there. Lots of pizza, pasta and wine? Yes please!
I'd also like to go to France for the croissants and macaroons, as well as trying frogs legs and snails! 

Q: Is there a place you would never go again?
A: I'm not sure. I wouldn't necessarily go on a girly drinking holiday again. Kavos was fun at the time but I definitely don't intend on going back there!

Q: Can you recite your passport number from memory if asked?
A: No way. I barely use my passport unfortunately! Hopefully I can change that this year :)

Q: Do you prefer window, aisle or middle seat?
A: Without even thinking about it, the window seat. Even though you might have to nudge a sleeping stranger so that you can hop over and go to the toilet, I would much rather be the one looking out over the sea, or mountains, or clouds!

Q: How do you pass the time on the airplane?
A: I'll usually watch the movie they provide if it's quite a short flight, chat to whoever I'm on the plane with, look out of the window and have a little read :) oh and eat... I always eat to pass the time!

Thanks for reading :)
Where would you like to travel to next?
Should I do some more tags on my blog?

Let me know if you do this tag also!
Love Dani :)
