i love a good McQueen exhibit
While my parents were in London, we went out to Westminster to meet with my dad’s friend. The sun was shining, and the breeze was perfect, and I just had a moment where I felt extremely grateful. I always feel grateful, but this time was so different. I just felt like I was exactly where I was meant to be, and I was doing everything I’m meant to, and I rarely have that feeling. The second photo is the background of the first photo, through my eyes. And what I saw while I was thinking about everything it took for me to get to where I am now. There’s not many photos in this post, but I just felt like sharing 🙂
here are my dream European destinations and why I want to go there
Spain: to see the pretty Spanish boys.. and architecture of course
Milan: to get an Italian shopping experience of course!
Portugal: to just see the beauty of it
Santorini: this is my beau and I’s dream destination together!
Venice: to travel by gondola while eating gelato
Ireland: to have a proper pint and to hear all of the Irish accents in one place haha
Scotland: just to see these beautiful castles in person
Amsterdam: to walk down the pretty streets and visit the moulin rouge
Cannes: to soak in the sun and go in the beautiful ocean
Norway: to see the northern lights of course!
A letter to my future self.. xx
Dear Future Self,
I hope you really achieve everything that you want in this rollercoaster life of yours. You’ve hustled since you were 14 for this and I hope that you not only get where you want to go, but enjoy every second of it. I hope that you find the peace that you’ve sought after for so long and that the battles you stressed about are no longer your concern. I hope you get to name nail polishes, make a perfume, collaborate with a makeup line, create a song, and do that swimsuit line you’ve been wanting to do. I used to think that our dreams were too big are too outside the box but if Rihanna can do all of it, you definitely can. I hope that your kids come out beautiful and full of passion and that they’re healthy. I hope that your beach wedding is fabulous! And I hope that whatever friends you have at the time aren’t being assholes. I have so much hope and faith in you to live our life to the absolute most so I hope you’re doing me proud. If you’re reading this and you haven’t made it that far, like you just graduated uni, I hope you get the dream industry job you wanted (the net a porter one, you know the one)! And I hope that you managed to keep good connections with the friends I made, because they are so so special (and you could definitely make magic with them later). Lastly, I hope you got to travel and are still traveling. I hope you’re not afraid to be alone and you do whatever the hell you want to do whenever the hell you want to do it and if you’re not, then GET ON THAT. Anyway, I think thats enough from me. Love you girl, we can (AND WILL) make it.

This is one of the most exciting videos I’ve ever made for my channel. I’ve anted a tattoo for as long as I could remember and I’m so glad that I got to document the experience and the excitement I felt right after I got this. In this vide I give advice about pain, price, how to prepare and location for those of you that might not have a tattoo but want one. Enjoy and don’t forget to subscribe!
For those of you who do not know, I am from the Cayman Islands. The Cayman Islands are made up of 3 islands and I live on the biggest one. But For the first time in 10 years, I took a trip to the smallest one, Little Cayman.
Little Cayman has a population of about 300 people (maybe less), and it is my favorite place in the world. Not only are you forced to relax, but you feel and sense of joy all the time because there is absolutely nothing to worry about. You can go outside and you will hear nothing but Booby birds or the crashing of waves from the sea.
I took my camera along with me and captured a few beautiful photos of the island that I will be sharing with you in my upcoming posts. Sadly I was only there for 4 short days but I cannot wait to be back!
If you’re anything like me, you’re really sentimental. With everything. Sadly, everything includes material things, and this is why it was and still is so hard for me to get rid of clothing. For example, a shirt I wore to my first concert might not fit me anymore and might be old and ratty but will I be willing to keep it? Of course.
It took me a while to realize that how sad this was. That I was clinging on to things I no longer needed or wanted, but kept them for the sake of a memory. So if you’re currently having the same problem that I had, here is a list of a few things I asked myself before I parted with old clothes.
- Do I still wear it?
- Will I ever wear it again?
- Why am I holding on to this?
- Does it even still fit me?
- Where am I going to put it?
If you answered “No” or “I don’t know” to these questions, simply get rid of it! There’s no reason to hoard, and so many new and fresh pieces are coming out every season that you can’t make space for because you are holding on to things that you have no use for anymore. Letting go of clothing and keeping only your favorite stuff is so refreshing and gives you so much space to play around with new fashion trends, ideas, etc.
I hope you all found this helpful, see you in my next post!
XO – Ally
