With the huge hype surrounding beauty guru Nikkie Tutorials and her collaboration with Too Faced it was only natural that I jumped on the band wagon. Now, I know there are people who don’t like associating themselves with YouTube/Blogger collaborations and that’s totally fine. However if I admire people for their artistry, hard work and determination then I will happily support them.
Recently I was invited to attend the official opening of the amazing new KIKO store in Belfast City Centre. A breakfast/press launch was beautifully put together for a variety of media influencers throughout Belfast. I brought along a good friend of mine and it’s safe to say that we definitely indulged in a crazy makeup shopping spree! I have been a huge fan of the Italian brand for many years now and just a few week’s ago I was shopping up a storm in their Spanish stores. A few of the products that I wanted in Spain were out of stock but they finally became mine at the Belfast launch. The high pigmentation, impressive quality and eye catching price has left quite the impact on us all.
The weekend has finally arrived! It’s certainly been a busy one between events, birthday’s and a great catch up with my good friend Ruth from Willow Lane. I was recently at the launch of the new KIKO store in Belfast and it was absolutely amazing! If you’re not familiar with the brand it is Italian based and their products are not only incredible but purse friendly! I’ll be featuring them on my blog next week so keep an eye out. So… this week on my Instagram it has been a firm mixture of style, beauty and travel shots. I’ve been featuring lots of my Spanish looks, my ColourPop collection and a colourful photo diary from my recent holiday.
Having spent a glorious week in Spain, I wanted to share my photo diary of my adventures. I had an incredible time exploring and spending some quality time with my family. If I had my own way I would spend the entire Summer there but unfortunately we all have to get back to reality. Last week I featured a few OOTD posts on the blog and today I’m excited to share my love of Spain and photography. I had been looking forward to my much needed holiday and it was honestly amazing to get away and relax. It has been four years since I was last in Murcia and getting back to the beach and culture was delightful. The weather was MAGNIFICENT and I made the most of the heat and glorious sunshine. Waking up in the morning and heading out to the patio for crossiants and coffee was a great way to start my day.
For years now I have been glued to various YouTuber’s such as Kathleenlights, Nikkie Tutorials and Chloe Morello. These US and Australian beauties have been using ColourPop for a while now and my obsession for the brand grew along with their collection. The products were never available for international shipping and it always broke my heart. I adored watching these ladies rave about the products and I was ECSTATIC when they finally started shipping internationally. I quickly ordered an insane amount of makeup and I can honestly say I was never more excited. I had a firm idea of what I wanted and I added some new additions to my basket (I’m sorry I just can’t say cart).
