SpringSheen

Over the weekend I spent Saturday shopping and sipping on sweet, sweet cocktails. As ever on my shopping spree, I visited the trusty MAC make up counter, to see what new pieces they had on offer.

I’m always like a big kid when I’m in MAC because I get so excited by the tiers filled with a variety of sparkling products. I’ve wanted to purchase this sheer tone shimmer blush for a while now and I was beyond excited when I finally treated myself to it.

image

When it comes to this type of cosmetic, I always tend to opt for the more coral/pink tones with a golden sheen as it works best with my skin tone and always leaves me with a natural glow.

image

When applied it leaves a matte finish with soft gold specks running throughout it. MAC are always renowned for their long lasting and durable blushers. Usually some may save this shade of blush for the spring/summer months, but, I prefer to wear this colour throughout the year to give my look a little warmth.

I think I’m definitely going to buy more shades from their blusher collection. I also really want their Copper Sparkle pigment shadow to add to my MAC collection. Happy Hump Day!

Tom & Eva

During my crazy shopping spree in Krakow, I came across this beautiful boutique just off the main square that sold thee most adorable handbags.

What I love most about shopping abroad is the new and local designers that are stocked in each shop. The darling little boutiques are adorable and the quality of the bags is amazing.

While I was browsing around the store, I came to a collection called Tom & Eva. They are a Parisian brand that create magnificent leather bags in Italy. The variety of styles and colours were exactly what I look for when it comes to picking handbags. I opted for this fabulous cream tote that I instantly fell in love with.

This is going to seem big headed of me, but, I couldn’t help but include my Chloe wallet in the picture. (For good measure of course!)

From the colour to the style and size, I just can’t get enough of my new fabulous tote! 😉

image

I haven’t used it yet, but, I’m thinking of wearing it this weekend for my birthday dinner and drinks. If not, then I’ll save it for Belfast Fashion Week. ♥

image

The interior of the bag is a beautiful silk taupe colour with multiple sections for my belongings. A great bonus for me as I carry around so many things. There was also a long adjustable strap with it, but, I prefer to use just the handles with a bag of this style.

image

I highly recommend that you all book a trip to Krakow. The shopping is amazing and insanely cheap! 🙂

Happy Hump Day, rascals. I’m currently enjoying my week off! Haha 😉

Simply Sephora

As you all know, last weekend I spent my time relaxing and shopping up quite the storm in Krakow. I was amazed at how cheap everything was from the food to the fashion. Even the beauty buys were in creditably cheap so when I came across a famous beauty superstore, I quickly popped my ‘Sephora cherry’.

image

image

Shocking to admit, but, I’ve never been to one before and I was ecstatic when I realised that Krakow had TWO. Hence my super shopping spree. I was like a kid in a candy store and to be honest at first I felt a little over whelmed as I didn’t know which counter to visit first. However, I soon got into the swing of things and suddenly I was spending a small fortune.

image

The first item on my hit list was this magnificent nude coloured eye shadow palette. I had heard all about Sephora’s own branded make up, so I made sure I treated myself to a little sparkle and shimmer. Browns, golds and coppers are colours that I always wear when doing my eye make up. I have dark brown eyes so I find that these colours work best on my eyes and skin tone.

Within the palette there is a collection of highlighters, shadows, eye liners and brushes. I bought this palette for £20 which is an absolute bargain! The pigmentation is quite deep and rich which makes the shadow and colour last longer. I honestly cannot believe how fabulous this palette is for such a purse friendly price! ♥

I can’t wait to use this glorious palette for a night out on the town. I would highly recommend that you all treat yourselves! 😉

I’ll be sharing the rest of my purchases from Sephora with you all very soon! ♥

My weekend in Krakow ♥

On Friday I posted a very quick piece showing all of you some of my pictures from my first day in Krakow, Poland.

As I’m writing this, my Sunday night/post holiday blues have hit home and I’m already missing Poland so much. This is not good!

Anywho, Krakow was honestly amazing. I was surprised at how much I actually loved it. And of course, I managed to squeeze in a little shopping! 😉 ( It would have been rude not to! )

When visiting this beautiful city, it is known for its cheap beer and tourist attractions. I visited Auschwitz concentration camp, but, I’m not going to upload any photos from my time at it. It was hard walking around it and learning more about the terrible torture that went on there.

During our four days in the city, it snowed the entire time we were there which made the scenery look magnificent. The architecture is breath taking and looked so pretty in the snow.

I’m going to be posting about my purchases soon, but, here’s a collection of photos from my trip to look at in the meantime. Enjoy! 🙂
