Holiday season is well and truly here and everyone’s heading away to catch some rays! I’m off to Crete soon and I can’t wait for some relaxation, feta cheese and seriously pretty sunsets. The only thing that can be a little tricky in our vacay situations is trying to fit everything you own into a teeny, tiny suitcase!
When I say ‘free’ weekend I mean those super rare ones where you have absolutely zero plans! I had one last weekend for the first time in about 6 weeks. We’ve been up and down the country, zipping to various appointments, seeing friends and family and having city breaks. Check out my favourite place for coffee in Leeds and where we stayed if you’re interested. I love being busy but it almost becomes a novelty when you have a weekend that you can do anything that you want with. Here are 7 things that I like to do when I have all the time in the world.
There’s nothing wrong with being a basic sometimes when trends are this cute. I totally don’t care! You be as authentic and original as you like but I’m sticking here with these cutie-matootie trends that I can’t get enough of. From Pinterest style to that holiday Instagram prop, you name it, I’m on it.
Summer is coming! Well, hopefully, if this rain ever goes away. Summer equals tanning, bronzed skin and some sunshine to go along with holidays and getting your legs out. For me this is anyway!
1. Be gradual
Whether it’s in-shower or over night, gradual tans are the best way to get the glow without the shock! I find that traditional fake tan is too much of a colour change the next day and everyone’s all “You look different.”. But, with a gradual, no one really notices as much. I’m so stealth. I also love to add a little gradual tanner to my face moisturiser every few nights in the summer. Bronzer is also a staple for my summertime makeup, kabuki brushes are perfect for creating the perfect contoured ‘3’ around your face.
It seems to be cold and grey and gross in the UK for so long that when the spring time rolls around and we actually get some sunshine we all freak out and think it’s summer (put those shorts away guys, it’s not warm!). But, it’s still kinda chilly but there are definitely some changes happening with the weather. My skin and hair always go a bit weird when the weather changes, does yours?
Last weekend we headed down to Hoar Cross Hall for a facial and a day of chilling out. We’re always busy and it was really exciting to be able to chill for most of the day. I’m not a massive ‘spa day’ person but I really enjoyed this trip. The whole walking around in a robe with strangers is kind of weird to me but you just have to go with it I think!
Skincare and beauty are big loves of mine. I’ve always loved makeup and trying new products so innovative releases are super exciting to me. I’ve got 5 new releases to chat to you about today, all of which I’ve been trialling for about 2 weeks to give a good idea of what I think. Let’s get straight down to it!
Pink is everywhere at the moment! From fashion buys to pastel hair, pink is always a spring trend and this year it seems bigger than ever. I headed down to Intu Victoria Centre with the gorgeous Robyn for a catch up, a glass of prosecco and a look at some lovely spring trends (including a lot of pink!)
That’s pretty much my life motto. Alongside all the other serious shit we have to put up with in life, why can’t we all just have nice eyebrows and be happy? Eyebrows are so important for the shape of your face, in my opinion they really finish things off and make you look more polished.
I’ve finally finished my course of Invisalign! After 58 weeks of changing aligners, brushing my teeth up to 6 times a day, tears, complaining and sulking, it’s over. It’s taken me just over a year to finish and I’m waiting for my retainers to arrive. So, I thought I’d do a little run down of some things that have happened, basically my Invisalign story. If anyone has any specific questions then I’d love to be able to help, so either leave me a comment or tweet me!
