I'm interrupting regular beauty blogging to bring you a wee lifestyle post...don't fret, regular beauty blogging will resume after this!
2013 and 2014 (what we've gone through so far, anyway) have been rather interesting times for me, which has seen quite a few changes in my life of late. While these aren't necessarily bad, they are changes I hadn't quite foreseen, and in a way, I feel like everything that has happened thus far has brought me to the particular set of crossroads I find myself standing at currently.
I'm quite a responsible, sensible person, who usually practices the 'look before you leap' philosophy. Having said that, I think I'm at a particularly unique position in my life currently, which I don't foresee myself ever having again. As a result, I've decided to throw caution to the wind, somewhat, and to embark on a wee adventure by doing a bit of traveling!
I literally only booked flights last week, and flew back to Kuala Lumpur a few days ago (which is where I am as I write this), and I'll be flying to Europe in 2 days for 3 weeks. I had initially planned to leave today, but sadly, I've caught the flu (yes, again!), and so I've postponed my flight by 2 days to give myself time to recover. I'm really looking forward to kicking this flu and enjoying my little trip to Europe! I'll be staying in Switzerland for the most part, with a couple of days in Brussels. While I've been to Switzerland twice before, I love it and look forward to seeing more of it than I did the last couple of times. I haven't really planned my holiday much so we'll just have to see what happens - the joys of 'winging' it! After Europe, I fly back to KL for a week or two to defrost and spend time with loved ones, before making my way back home to Melbourne.
I'm really looking forward to spending some time in the chilly temperatures of Switzerland (3 degrees currently, thank you very much) and overindulging in cheese, handmade chocolate and wine. This will also be a great time to take a break from the daily grind, recharge my batteries and clear my head - essentially, get back in touch with the resolutions I spoke about in this post. I'll be taking a little break from beauty blogging but I have scheduled a few posts to go live in my absence, so do drop by from time to time to show me some love! If you follow me on Instagram, I will do my best to share travel photos along the way!
I'm not sure what internet access I'll have, so I might be a bit slow responding to comments/emails...please bear with me!

Have you ever embarked on a little adventure like this, lovelies? If so, I'd love to hear about it!
