Majorca Getaway OOTD

Monday, 20 October 2014

I was in major need of a quick getaway following a very busy, hard working couple of months and what a perfect way to surprise my boyfriend with a trip to Majorca for five days for a little break!
We stayed in a little hotel in S'illot which was 5 minutes walk from the beautiful white sand beach! I've never actually been on a proper beachy type of holiday before so this was something I was really looking forward to! 

It was such an amazing getaway for the both of us and was so romantic, I definitely recommend booking a quick getaway if you're in a couple! I was enjoying myself so much that I only brought out my camera once! However I managed to get a few snaps as well as Ryan on his go pro.







Playsuit - The End Sandals - Primark Necklace - Local Majorcan Shop




I didn't wear any make-up for the entire holiday apart from one day and my skin cleared up so much! The locals are so lovely and hilarious! The drinks though - the exotic looking drink in this photo isn't even a cocktail it's just a strawberry and apple smoothie! It came with gallons of fruit around the edges... mmm!


I had such an amazing time in Majorca, have you ever been? Link me to posts! I would love to reminisce! 


My Favourite Things Of September...

Tuesday, 7 October 2014

I didn't post an August Favourites, simply because there wasn't many different things that I was loving and using so thought it would make a bit of a boring video - but in September I was using different products and had a lot of new loves!


Starting with this lipstick from Rimmel in Asia which I would say is a cross between MAC's Velvet Teddy & Kinda Sexy (which I can't find at the moment *sob*). This is a lasting finish lipstick applies creamy and stays on for ages - such a staple nude colour.

   

I have been turning towards this palette ridiculous amounts this month, not only because it's new in my collection but it's such a versatile eye-shadow palette. The balm's nude'tude palette has a perfect mixture of lighter and darker colours - unlike a lot of neutral palettes which just have the lighter colours. The colours are well pigmented, creamy and easy to work with - review here - tutorial here.



Two very special mentions goes to brushes by Zoeva - a brand I have heard raved about countless times but never tried until IMATS in June. Their brushes are insanely soft and make make-up application a walk in the park.



This has got to be one of those bought at least a year ago - but forgotten and fell back in love with kind of products... It is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I've been using this recently, mostly to foil eye-shadows and help glitter adhere to my eyes. This is such a fabulous product - and lasts for ages so is well worth the price tag. Now i've just set up the link I realise I must even have the old packaging! 


The famous, the legendary.. Sigma Flat Top Kabuki! This product has been so raved and hyped up about in the beauty youtube community that it almost sounds too good to be true. However; this brush is worth ALL of the hype - if you want a flawless finish quick and easy this is the brush for you. The synthetic hairs are densely packed but not too dense so they allow for a bit of movement when applying liquid and cream products to the face.


Lastly my make up geek eyeshadows *love heart face emoji* review here, giveaway here. I can't say enough how much I love these eye-shadows, and the fact that they are half the price of MAC eyeshadows!






Have you tried any of these products or have any recommendations? Let me know in the comments below!
