A short and sweet post for today as I’m heading off to Spain for some adventures in the sun. I’m beyond excited for this trip as a well deserved break is needed! I love when you first get off the plane and the heat hits you in the face. Plenty of sun, sea and sangria will be the main theme on my Instagram for the week. I’m hoping to fit in a little shopping while I’m there and indulge in a few road trips so stay tuned!
The past few days have been crazy busy as I was in my beloved Kerry for my nephew’s Christening. We were all down for a couple of days and for the most part I was unfortunately sick. It’s just my luck as I didn’t get to enjoy nights out, all I wanted to do was sleep it off. The Christening day however was such a lovely celebration. I’m his Godmother and I was so excited to be a part of his big day. He was so adorable dressed in his little outfit and he was lapping up all of the attention. I can’t wait to see him next week in Spain in his little swimwear and splashing in the pool.
Summer consists mainly of two things for me – cocktails and more cocktails. I’ve been on some what of a kick and the glorious sunshine we’ve been enjoying doesn’t help! The mind blowing and decadent ‘Lagaritas’ at hotspot, The Perch, left an almighty feeling with me the next day! That’s what Summer is all about isn’t it?! Between socialising and sunbathing this past few week’s have been quite enjoyable! I head off to Spain in three week’s for a well deserved break and I’m in dire need of new swimwear and it’s safe to say I have left it a little late. If any of you can recommend any pretty one pieces or bikinis please let me know, I’m desperate.
I’m kick starting this week on such a high! I feel extremely humble to have received such heartwarming responses after my Chronic Anxiety post. I never in a million years thought I would have had so many incredible people contact me so I just want to say thank you. I’ve also got my little chipmunk (my nephew) visiting for the week so I’m absolutely thrilled. He has such an adorable personality and he’s getting bigger by the day. I’m waiting for him to waken up so we can watch Miffy and get some cuddles.
During the week I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of a very special delivery. I treated myself to my first ever Self Portrait piece. I’ve always adored the brand as cutwork styles are my favourite. I just think they add such a unique edge to a look and the quality is excellent. I have shared a sneak preview but in the coming week’s I’ll share the entire look in a feature.
I have spent most of this week waiting *patiently* for parcels to arrive. I’m still waiting for the rest of my IT Cosmetics to arrive (thanks for that Beautylish). On Wednesday the mothership of all things beauty was posted in the form of Sephora. I decided to go ahead and order the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. There has been much controversy surrounding the eyeshadow pallette but thankfully my order did not disappoint! The pigmentation, texture and quality are Becca worthy and I’m madly in love. To say it’s majestic is an understatement, the packaging is very ‘Instagram appropriate’ and the colours certainly pop.
