Update: Life, Make Up & Favourites

August has been a rollercoaster of a month so far, but it's been absolutely incredible! 

At the start of the month I went away to Paris for 5 days with my boyfriend, his sister and her boyfriend. It was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed, seeing the sights, having an immense time at Disneyland and of course shopping! Going on top of the Eiffel Tower was a great experience (except the 2 hour queue before it) but I'm glad I did it. Lots of baguettes, crepes, croissants and macaroons were consumed! :)

With roughly two days to spare after I got home from Paris I needed to get ready and pack for Gran Canaria with my Dad, sister and brother (it was crazy, but I couldn't wait!)

The overall week went by quite fast, but I enjoyed and it was nice to spend time with my family :) The weather was great, reaching 34 degrees one day when I noticed a nearby thermometer... a lot hotter and sunnier than little ol' Wales! The Maspolamas area was lovely and we had a chance to go on two trips during the week, one being a boat ride on the Supercat where we traveled around the island, had the chance to see dolphins(!) and swim outside the boat! The other trip allowed us to go to Las Palmas city area to see the sights including a Christopher Columbus Museum and we also got to do shopping ;)

Today's Make-up Look

(The raved about Bioderma and a Loreal Caresse Lipstick in 102 Mauve Cherie.)

I bought the Bioderma whilst in Paris due to lots of great reviews, and after using it over this short period of time I really do love it. It's great at taking your make up off, it feels lovely on the skin and feels very refreshing! I found it very useful whilst on holiday especially, for a nice skin refreshment :) 

I bought the lipstick on my way home at the airport after eying them back at home, and with a spare 20 euros waiting to be spent I thought, why not! I really love the colour, consistency and the smell! It has a lovely sweet scent, glides lovely onto the lips and feels very moisurising, love it! ;)

Hope you enjoyed this post,
