I am heading off on holiday in a few weeks to sunny Spain – totally ready for some relaxation time with the family, a chance to catch up on my reading and top up my tan since London summer has not yet arrived! Here are a few purchases I made in advance and I can’t wait to pack them in my suitcase!
Naked Palette – I had to relent and buy this Naked Basics Palette. I just needed some eyeshadow I could wear everyday while I love my Naked 3 palette for the shimmery shades, I just felt the matte ones didn’t suit me. I love the size of this one and that it can fit right in my make up bag! Plus I bought it in duty-free and everyone knows what you buy at the airport doesn’t count!
BB cream – Summer time is here and with that i have banished my foundation and moved onto BB cream. I used to use the Loreal one and I thought I would try a Garnier one. I love the coverage it gives, still enough t. However I unfortunately bought it in a shade too dark for me so I had to go and buy the fair shade! Luckily it was a serious bargain – it is currently on offer in Superdrug for £4.50 so get on down and try it out!
Statement earrings – I loved these black, white and gold aztec style earrings for summer and they are definitely going to be my summer earrings!
Headscarf – This was a risky purchase as I am slightly concerned I look like a 6 year old wearing this scarf but I wanted something to keep my hair off my face when I’m by the pool or beach. I feel I am kind of getting away with it so far….or so I like to think!
Necklace – My mum had this necklace and last time I was visiting I didn’t take it off me and was go glad to see that H&M still had it in stock! I love the white necklace with a white top for summer. My mum, my sister and me all have really similar taste when it comes to jewellery and since I live in a different city we can’t share the way we used to. So everytime one of us buys a necklace, you can almost guarantee someone else will buy it within a few weeks!
Make-up bag – This was probably my most expensive purchases but I desperately needed a make-up bag that actually fitted everything in this and I loved the gorgeous Liberty fabric of this one. Its from Maggs London and I think they make a great present for someone, or a treat for yourself!
