Bella Italia x

I've just got back from a few days in Rome. I haven't been before and it definitely was much better than I expected! I do love a City break but I'm such a sun worshipper I'd usually go for a beach resort. I absolutely loved it there.... Everyone is so well dressed and really look smart. 

They love their Smart cars, I nearly got run over about a dozen times. I love the way they drive -  I would fit in well! They're so extravagant and care free. 
As for beauty salons maybe I wasn't looking in the right places but they are definitely more into their clothes and sunglasses! I did a lot of shopping and of course visited the Colosseum. You can really imagine what it was like. I was obviously picturing Russell Crowe there with me....

My hotel was perfectly situated next to Harry's Bar (I'm always at Harry's in the City!) and I happened to bump into a couple of footballers that I'd met a few days before in London. Such a small world! Next stop Marbella....... xx

Tangerine Dream

I thought Spring was on it's way but every time it gets near it gets grey outside again just as quickly! I wish summer would hurry up so I can lay outside in my garden which I'm going to have made really tropical looking so I can imagine I'm on an Island somewhere and not outside of London! 

I'm not a fan of sunbeds, I do have the odd one when I'm cold & in need of some Vitamin D (?) but in between holidays I sometimes use St Tropez Every Day.. It's a gradual tanning moisturiser and costs £14. It smells nice too, usually people can smell fake tan a mile off but this one is really lovely, smells like just a light scented perfume and not over powering. It comes in light-medium and medium-dark and obviously I go for the medium to dark one haha... I will be slapping it on before I go to Marbella, that will be my next sun holiday so I will want to be blend in there among all my girl friends and 'bella belles! 

It's not actually a holiday... it's a Hen Party that I'm going for in June, I'll be there before that too but it's only for a few days so doubt I will see much sun! I have 4 Hen Party's this year, I want to come up with some original activities and torture for the brides to be, other than your standard stripper surprise, which obviously will be taken care of! haha ;)

I'm off to Rome so I will update again soon & let you know what the Romans are up to. They love a bit of self-maintenance so I'll find out what the latest craze is over there!!

Ciao! xx

Iridescent 'Belightful'

I got this in my MAC gift set that I got for Valentines day :)
To be honest at first I thought I'm not going to use that, it's all glittery? But I have given it a go & it's actually a time saver for me. When you've already got makeup on & can't re-apply from scratch, this really makes it look fresh. It reflects the light and gives a nice glow. I've used it across my eyes too but just a dust over your cheek bones looks gorge!xx

Mother's Day Treat...

If like mine your mum loves Creme De La Mer, and hand cream, and is spolit.. She'll LOVE this hand treatment...
Luckily I think ahead & bought it at the airport for £51... Mother's Day is on 3rd April this year so you still have time!x
(Ps. they do a gorge lipbalm too)
