Spring/Summer Bucket List

You have no idea how chuffed I am that we're finally starting to wave goodbye to cold weather! Spring and summer are my favourite seasons; I'm always at my happiest during this time of year. I know we're already near the end of April so this post is a little overdue, but I wanted to write it nonetheless. Here are a few things I'm aiming to do in the coming months...

A Few From Budapest

At the end of March my friend Chloe and I made a last minute decision to book a short trip to Budapest. It's not somewhere I'd ever thought about visiting before and wasn't sure what to expect; however we had an amazing time. We stayed right in the heart of the city and managed to cram so much into our 72-hour stay. I found it similar to Prague in the fact that it's super cheap, incredibly beautiful and has that real medieval, Gothic aesthetic to it.

#NEXTBEAUTY Event, Covent Garden

Last week I was very kindly invited to the Next beauty event, which took place at the Ice Tank in Covent Garden (i.e. the most Instagram-able location I've ever come across). I've been a fan of Next's beauty line for a while - especially their perfumes - so I was excited to preview their new pieces. On arrival I was offered a cocktail and  some delicious-looking canapes, which I munched on whilst having a mingle. I went by myself which is always a bit nerve-wracking but luckily everyone was super approachable and friendly.

Still Here

It feels very strange to sit and write here. I took an unintentional hiatus from my blog - almost five months - which is the longest I've ever gone without posting. I can't quite put my finger on why I stopped exactly; I guess my heart just hasn't been in it. There's been plenty of times I've opened my laptop with the intention of blogging, but the motivation hasn't been there. I like to keep my content as organic as possible and hate to force it, therefore this little space has remained silent for almost half a year.

My Must Haves For Longer Lasting Eyeshadow

I hadn't bothered using a lid primer for years until just recently - I was having trouble keeping my eyeshadow in place and began looking for something that would stop it creasing. I didn't really want to spend much money, so I initially tried MUA's offering - which did nothing - and then Sephora's, which worked a little bit better but still didn't keep my colour looking fresh all day like I wanted. I decided to bite the bullet and invest in something a little more heavy-duty, so I picked up Urban Decay's Primer Potion (Original) and the Soft Ochre Paint Pot by MAC.
