Barcelona 2017

Leave a Comment
I haven't actually written a blog post in a very very VERY long time... and there are a few reasons why; 
1) 2017 has already been a super speedy, super intense year for me! I have finally finished my A-Levels and schooling, hence why I had to focus primarily on my work and studies instead of my blog :(

2) I have been travelling a lot... Travelling is one of my biggest passions; I LOVE meeting new people, speaking (or trying to speak) different languages, and getting a real taste of the countries culture; including the weird, yet delicious (or not-so delicious)  traditional dishes that each country or region presents. 

This year, for the first time in my life, I decided to go to Barcelonaaa! A well-known Spanish city, home to some of the most amazing buildings designed by Gaudi. 

Personally, I think that Antoni Gaudi has created some really beautiful pieces. His style is so unique and colourful. I have never seen anything like it before!

I am not very knowledgeable on the subject of History of Art, however, I would definately study it if i got to learn more about Gaudi; he is so inspiring and the 'Sagrada Familia Basilica' is the most beautiful church that I have ever seen ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

This market was filled with a colourful array of weird and wonderful delights! I bought lots of fresh and dried fruit, plus it was pretty cheap: a cup of fruit cost me 1€. 

This is just a quick taster of lots more posts to come! Right now I am in Milan, the city of fashion ๐Ÿ˜ 

Have an amazing day everybody, and don’t forget to live life to the fullest. 

Maybelline The Nudes smokey eye palettes

Leave a Comment
When it comes to partying there is one beauty look us teens look to perfect, and that's the smoky eye...I look to my fave icons for inspiration think GiGi , Kendall, the Olsen twins and of course Cara Delevingne!

The smokey eye is a universal look which suits everybody, making your eyes pop and look bigger! There are hundreds of different ways to wear a smokey eye, be it evening or night. I love mixing up my smokey eye, using a darker more dramatic one in the evening and a colourful, light palette during the day. 

From my experience, practice makes perfect and I think I have finally nailed the look with the help of my new beauty finds; the MAYBELLINE shadow Palettes in Nude and Blushed. 

Each palette contains 12 incredibly easy to wear shades, all of which can my layered and blended together. For night time statement eyes I prefer the shades in the Nudes Palette, these shades are dense snd matt, allowing you to build up the intensity for a smokin' hot eye! 
With just 3 of the shades, you can manipulate the Nudes Maybelline palette to suit you! 

These are an amazing find, great quality and value,  at just £9.99, and I highly recommend these palettes for every eye shape  skin tone and look out there.  I'd love to hear about your fave smokey eye look too! 

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm & Blush

I am loving the new Maybelline Baby Lips Balm and Blush, just landed in stores! 

So so cute, these new Baby Lips Balm and Blush are great for on the go. No need for a mirror, apply the hydrating balm to lips and cheeks for an instant sheer tint of colour and freshness. 

They come in four easy to wear shades, and my favourite has to be Flirty Pink, a rosy pink shade which offers a "just back from a jog glow," exactly what is called for at this time of year! 

What is more I'm addicted to these sweet smelling balms and at just £4.99 I will certainly  be investing in all 4 shades; Innocent Peach, Flirty Pink, Booming Ruby and Shimmering Bronze!! 


Yes To Cucumbers Organic Vegan Shampoo and Conditioner

Leave a Comment
My main beauty focus recently has been my hair...(as it is very VERY long) and I am always on the look out for new shampoos to try. I like to have clean healthy looking hair, which means shampooing at least 3 times a week - if your hair looks great then you feel great, that's what I say! On trial this week is the 'Yes To' hair range: 

I have been trying out the Yes to Cucumbers Volumising shampoo and conditioner, for normal to fine hair; 
'Yes To Cucumbers' shampoo and conditioner claims that they both contain 96% (or more) of natural ingredients, including cucumbers of course, and aloe vera. These two ingredients are very important for volumising and soothing the hair, which made me want to try these two products even more, as I love to add a bit of volume to my hair. 

Here are some reasons why I enjoy using 'Yes To Cucumbers':
  • I try to avoid any beauty product that has been tested on animals (as I am passionate about wildlife, and a part-time vegan). Therefore, I was over the moon when I found out that the 'Yes To Cucumber' range were cruelty-free (yet another BIG bonus to these products) 
  • The perfect product if you want to stay healthy the simpler way- As I have said, the 'Yes To' range is organic, vegan, and hypoallergenic
  • The next bonus for me is the size of the product, a whopping 280ml size is appealing as I tend to use more shampoo per wash to ensure my long hair gets a good and thorough wash and condition.
  • To top it all off, this range has a fragrant cucumber scent, which leaves the hair with a fresh clean aroma.
  • And the lather factor? After wetting my hair through a small application of product delivered the desired lather for a first wash, the second shampoo I followed with the fresh smelling conditioner, which instantly smoothed the ends of my hair.
  • AMAZING results for a budget buy, coming in at just under £5.00 each. 

All in all I say Yes to the 'Yes To' range! -  great value for money and the extra large size means it will last longer than my usual 100ml size brands.  I can't wait to try out the 'Yes To' body range next..
