Let’s just say – the month of May was not kind to me! I was so ill for all of it and I also had to get an operation (I was supposed to get two but that’s a story for another day!). I’m thankfully recovering well after a bad turn but now I’m finally back on track and focusing on every Summer! *end of rant* So apart from everything mentioned above I’ve just been taking it easy and building myself back up.
In my previous features I would have put together a ‘My Week On Instagram’ post but seeing as I’ve been away for while, here’s an Instagram Update. I couldn’t possibly round up nine months worth of images so I’ve put together a few collages of my favourite shots. Even though I took a break from blogging I still managed to keep up with my favourite social media account. I never really lost my spark for it as truth be told it was enjoyable to focus on. With its image based themes and little content required, I loved uploading to it.
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.
