Happy BANK HOLIDAY weekend everyone!
So… it’s the last long weekend of the year… I am heading off to the white island of Ibiza for a weekend of work and play with Lipsy London…
We are going to Ocean Club on the Sunday for a fun pool party and I am doing a photoshoot over there too. I cant wait! Some of my friends are meeting me there too so it will be a weekend to remember I am sure …
Anyway, to recap on what has been going on… Last week Mark and I went Spain for 2 days because Mark’s cousin Elliott was opening his new restaurant called Olivia’s in La Cala De Mijas, it’s a gorgeous restaurant and the launch had a great atmosphere. Well done Elliott! For more info go to: http://oliviaslacala.com/
During this mini trip, we went to Gibraltar for the day, to visit some of my family who still live there.
Mark’s never been so I really enjoyed showing him round, I showed him where my Grandma used to live when she was growing up, then we went up The Rock!
It was so funny because half way up out of nowhere you are greeted with monkeys who are just walking around pinching food off tourists, they pinch anything they get their hands on, ice creams, crisps, juice cartons, and they get away with it because they’re so cheeky!
For the opening of Olivia’s I wore this very cute I Miss Selfridges co-ord set. It’s quite simple in design why I added a coloured lip to finish look off.
I wore a Kiko lip precision lip pencil, it prolongs the wear of any lip color. Applying lip liner before your lipstick or lip gloss helps prevent the color from bleeding or feathering (which I hate) –making it a dream for dark lipstick lovers like myself.
Then filled it in with a GOSH lipstick called… Divine. And it is! I love this colour and the lipstick is really reasonably priced at around a fiver.
Products of the week
Metallic body jewellery transfers
I’ve been sent these fab metallic body jewellery transfers to try out so I will definitely be using them over in Ibiza . You can get them from TopShop and Asos but these are sold in Harrods and there are some gorgeous patterns and styles to try out.
Go to www.bohemianjewellerytats.com to see all the different options of designs. They last for up to 5 days too!
I’m taking the fantastic Benefit “Bathina” to Ibiza with me… It smells soooo good!!! A body balm that you put on your legs and arms it leaves your skin looking silky and smooth!
This lasts for ages too and gives your skin a very subtle sheen.
Orgins Incredible Spreadable
One of my favourite all time scrubs – it smells amazing and really leaves your skin feeling smooth and fresh. I apply with a mit, scrub in circular motions and then rinse off. If you love the smell of Ginger then use the Origins Ginger Cloud body balm lotion afterwards. you smell like a gingerbread woman!
Origins Clear Improvement Detoxifying Charcoal Scrub
This scrub contains sea salts and brown sugar to exfoliate your dead skin away. It is a thick black cream so looks a little odd but it really does the trick! I have been using this for my pre Ibiza preparation.
Soap and Glory “The greatest scrub of all”
The more you scrub, the more you smooth (this scrub is like a DIY microdermabrasion). It is formulated to leave even the most exhausted face looking clear and fresh.
I’m also loving …
My new Autumn jacket… From Zara… £79.99
I love this key piece, perfect if you want to jazz up a plain outfit… I wear it with jeans and a T-shirt.
There’s lots of jackets around at the moment going into Autumn like this, they’re an essential for an autumn wardrobe and this one will last for years.i love all the embroidery and detail..
Hope you all have a fantastic Bank Holiday,
Lots of love from
