Top 3 Bucket List Destinations with Transun


When I hear the word bucket list it almost feels out of reach. I associate it with places and things I would love to see and do, but doubt I'd ever have the opportunity. But I guess that's why it's called a bucket list, because no doubt the list is endless for everyone and you just hope to tick off even a few before you kick the bucket! When thinking of dream destinations, my top three always come to mind and I am so excited to share with you these breathtaking places and why they are so incredible.

#1 Antelope Canyon - Utah

I know what you're all thinking...ah, a canyon just like that film with James Franco...No. This is not why this is top of my list when it comes to the bucket form. I have honestly been mesmerized by canyons for as long as I can remember and can think of nothing better than turning off my mobile, grabbing my camera and getting lost in here. Antelope Canyon is the sort of place I would have made up in my mind to escape hectic everyday life in the city, had it not already existed. And boy am I glad it does. It is escapism in it's truest form, meaning you can experience endless adventure while you clear your mind (and take awesome photos on the way!)


#2 Blue Mosque - Istanbul

Find me a girl who doesn't like things that sparkle and I will praise her. Find me anyone on earth who doesn't like visiting a holy place of worship, be it a church/mosque/ temple/synagogue you name it, I bet you can't find a single person who doesn't wish to visit one. They are pure, magical and spectacular. The Blue Mosque is optical illusions at it's best, with thousands of ─░znik style ceramic tiles which reflect the light giving the mirage of glistening diamonds. I literally could not think of anything more incredible for a magpie like me, I think you'd have to drag me away kicking and screaming from this beauty. Imagine this was the place you came to worship? Not to mention this stunning place is in Europe - mind blown



#3 Five Flower Lake, China

Have you ever seen a lake so pure and clear? Five Flower Lake in China is a spectacle, with a criss-crossed bottom from ancient trees which have fallen into the lake, hues of blue and green which you usually only find in the Caribbean and beautiful autumnal colours that make you realise why this is the best season to visit. It literally takes my breath away just looking at the photos, imagine what being there will do! Though difficult to reach by land, meaning a 10 hour bus ride down from Chengdu it would be 100% worth it for that view. I could honestly find inner peace here and come home much more positive about things. Where else can you do that? China you could steal my heart <3

Obnoxious Bloggers


T shirt by ASOS; Jeans by Zara; Plimsolls by ASOS; Sunglasses by RayBan; Clutch by Marc Jacobs

You know those times when you just want to be an idiot and poke fun at yourself? Well I had one of those moments when browsing ASOS last week for comfortable t shirts to wear with jeans when I found this gem. I did have my eye on the Revolve Clothing 'I am not a fashion blogger' tee, but it was sold out! Despite the obnoxious print, it is the ultimate comfy t shirt and get's a few stares...

Dress Up / Dress Down

Shirt by Warehouse; Jeans by Zara; Bag by Alexander McQueen; Shoes by Christian Louboutin; Sunglasses by Rayban

I nabbed this perfectly tailored sleeveless shirt while at Warehouse's Urban Garden Party at the end of March and I can't explain the happiness at how amazing it fits. It's the little things huh? Dating back to god knows when, it seems everyone thinks wearing jeans make you look like you're 'dressing down' but while I agree, I also disagree. Here I have tried to dress up my dressed down jeans with some designer shoes and a smart stylish shirt. Jeans are officially not just for sundays anymore.

Military


Jumpsuit by Primark; Shoes by Miss Selfridge; Lipstick by Chanel

Jumpsuits are hardly ever on my top list of things I'd like to wear, or buy for that matter as they are usually better suited to the slimmer female. But what do you know, they actually don't look as hideous on as I first suspected - I'd go as far as saying it looks pretty damn good on a size 10 wearer like me for a jumpsuit from the mother of bargainland, Primark! Not bad at all...

Short Hair


Hair by; RUSH London


Sometimes it's time for a change albeit not a too dramatic one, it was still a relief to have 2 inches taken off my dry and damaged mane ready for summer. Did I hear it was going to be 20C on Friday in London? *squeals!*

Holiday Fever


I officially have holiday fever and am itching to get back on a plane and travel somewhere new! Thankfully I booked a 3 day trip to Copenhagen for my birthday in May before Christmas which I am more than a little excited about. Please pass on any suggestions for food/drinks/places of interest if you've visited before :)
