My Summer so far… <3

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been on holiday and this weekend I went to London for the weekend with a couple of other bloggers for dinner and drinks (it was lovely). I’m having a busy Summer (/year) so far and time is flying wayyyy to quickly.. I can’t believe I’m 23 in a couple of weeks. CRAZY! So I’ve decided to do a random post on what I’ve been up to so far this Summer…

HEEEY GUYS & GALS!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been on holiday and this weekend I went to London for the weekend with a couple of other bloggers for dinner and drinks (it was lovely). I’m having a busy Summer (/year) so far and time is flying wayyyy to quickly.. I can’t believe I’m 23 in a couple of weeks. CRAZY! So I’ve decided to do a random post on what I’ve been up to so far this Summer…

In March I was lucky enough to spend two weeks in Los Angeles and yeah I know March isn’t Summer, but it’s close enough and lets be honest it’s the most exciting thing I’ve done in my entire life! I had such a lovely time and even got the chance to visit Too Faced HQ in Irvine and let me tell you this, it was pure heaven. I had an exciting tour around their offices, kitchen and studio and lets just say every room was full of makeup, very pink and the weather was lovelyy!

I later returned home back to, well, not so sunny England and reality gave me a huge slap in the face. I returned to work the following week but on the plus side I managed to complete my Level 4 Diploma in Digital Marketing with a distinction so life wasn’t all that bad (clapsss).

In June I went on a lovely holiday with my boyfriends family to Turkey. I had a great time blogging for World Duty Free at Gatwick airport, the girls were so lovely and helpful. I even got the chance to have my brows done thanks so the lady on the Benefit Cosmetics counter who let me try out their new range. Have you seen/tried it yet? Seriously, it’s a must! I can’t believe how shamaazing their brow product range is now since their recent launch. I highly recommend heading down to your nearest Benefit retailer and asking if you can test out their variety of brow products because they have introduced so many new shades.

Ok so after raiding the Duty Free shop in departures we jetted off to Turkey and basically spent 10 days chilling. I say chilling, I actually faced 2 of my biggest fears and feel pretty proud of myself. I swam with a wild, yes wild turtle that was just swimming around in the lagoon and I also went parasailing! Seeing as I’m afraid of heights and anything that moves I felt like I had accomplished a lot in such a short space of time.

I returned home from Turkey last week and the following day was lucky enough so spend the afternoon at Lush Cosmetics HQ. I had a tour around their offices and tested out some bath bombs. I later went for a luxurious facial in their spa and if this blog post is to teach you one thing, it’s that Lush facials are THE BEST IN THE WORLD! I mean, I’ve not had a facial in another country but I’ve definitely had a few facials and this one was totally unique and worth every penny of the price they charge. Basically, you’re there for around an hour and a half and you get to pick the Lush products you want them to use. You’re then taken to the most beautiful, cosy room.. almost like a cottage where you lay down and listen to a sound track that was recorded right on my doorstep! Well, not literally ON my doorstep but just up the road at Chesil beach. It’s soooo relaxing and the therapist massages you for a whole 60 minutes as well as stretching out the muscles in your arms and legs. I then left there smelling of a walking lush store (perfect).

This weekend just gone I had a manic but enjoyable weekend in London with my two blogger pals, Amy and Victoria. We had a lovely afternoon tea at Sketch – the most picturesque lunch I ever have consumed. If ever you go to Sketch then honestly you’ve GOT to check out their bathroom! You literally pee in pods, that’s all I’m gunna say.

After afternoon tea we got ready for dinner at Bodos Schloss in Kensington where we spent the evening eating and consuming far too much alcohol. We managed to spend the whole night in the VIP area drinking plenty of cocktails, rose and vodka. It was an enjoyable night drinking and dancing the night away! I highly recommend visiting Bodos Schloss for a top night out and we will definitely be returning again soon.

Ok, so that is my Summer so far, it’s been pretty amazing to be honest. Oh yeah, I can’t believe I forgot to mention, my boyfriend proposed to me at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills whilst on our trip to LA (how romantic?) I will never forget both our holidays this year and can’t wait to go back in a year or two.

Please let me know about your Summer so far and any holidays you have been on because I’m always on the hunt to book a holiday for next year. I’d love to hear about any adventures you’ve been on.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I hope you all have a great week!

Long time no see! I can’t believe it’s been weeks since I last posted on my blog. I’ve been crazy busy catching up with work since I got home from LA. We had such an amazing holiday so I thought I’d reminisce with a blog post on what we got up to.

Long time no see! I can’t believe it’s been weeks since I last posted on my blog. I’ve been crazy busy catching up with work since I got home from LA. We had such an amazing holiday so I thought I’d reminisce with a blog post on what we got up to.

We stayed at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown LA which was absolutely beautiful. They had a gorgeous swimming pool with sauna and hot tub, as well as a large gym. The hotel itself is known for being the early home to the Academy Award Ceremony for the Oscars. The interior was stunning and staff were so friendly.

We had some amazing day trips and all were easy to get to by Uber. Our day trips included visiting Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, Hollywood sign, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Santa Monica, Laguna beach, Venice Beach and so much more. We also watched the LA Galaxy play as well as watching the LA Lakers win against Miami Heat!

During our last week in LA I spent a morning visiting Too Faced Cosmetics HQ. It was like heaven and was such an amazing opportunity.

Here are just a few photos from our holiday:

 

Reality soon hit us and now we’re back in the UK preparing ourselves for Summer! Anyone who is planning a trip to LA, please get in touch and I’d be happy to provide you with any recommendations and tips that you might need 🙂

February Favourite #O1

You may or may not have seen the blog post i published last weekend on the Spectrum Collections makeup brushes (mermaid inspired)… Well of course I needed to buy a mermaid inspired bag to match. This rose gold shell bag is from Skinny Dip London, one of my favourite shops right now! They sell so many sweet bags, phone cases and random bits & bobs that you could spend hours on their website or in their store in London. I’ve decided to remove the strap and use this shell bag as a makeup bag for my trip to LA. This sweet phone case (iPhone 5S) matches perfectly and is also from Skinny Dip London.

February Favourites #O2

Nike Air Max Thea Black – £90 <3

I’ve had my eyes on the Nike Air Max Thea trainers for weeks and I desperately wanted them in a khaki/camel colour but they had completely sold out, apart from on eBay where they were selling for a couple of hundred (£££)… Gutted. I then made a decision on whether to purchase them in white/grey or black. I thought grey initially because right now grey is my favourite, but then I decided on black because they will go well with anything. I decided to buy these because they are the perfect shoes to wear whilst shopping in LA.. I mean every girl needs a pair of shoes to go shopping in doesn’t she?!

They’re super comfy and I know that if I were to wear any other type of shoe to stroll around LA in then my feet would be killing by lunchtime (NOT GOOD)! I’ve made the uncomfortable shoe mistake one too many times and I’m not about to do it again…

February Favourites #o3

Third and final favourite for this month are these matching hoodie and trackie bottoms from Rebellious Fashion. As I previously mentioned, grey is my favourite colour right now so this matching set is gorgeous! It’s so comfy to wear just lounging around the house but also looks great to wear out. I’m not one for wearing crop tops, but the trackie bottoms are high waisted which makes them perfect.
