Early May Favourites and Trying To Be a Mermaid x

Early May Favourites and Trying To Be a Mermaid x

Hiya guys, sorry for the late post tonight but I have loads of exams coming up so I've been revising non stop, ugh the very thought of revising makes me fall asleep. 
This weekend has been a kind of chilled out weekend, I went in the sea, in the pool and then the rest has just been dancing clubs and revision so not very exciting, I know, but there are some mucho exciting things coming up in the next couple of weeks so you just have to keep your eyes peeled mwa ha ha! As I borrowed my sisters underwater camera, I've got some pictures that I'm quite proud of (counting that a majority of them involved me holding my breath for an uncomftorble amount of time whilst trying to stay in an underwater position with water going up my nose)!  Aswell I though I might add in a super early May Favourites as I probably won't have time to do one at the end of the month, so without further adue, here they are...x 

Following on from the picture above, my May Favourites have taken quite a longtime for me to pick out seeing as I've been loving so many things lately. My TV and music favourites of the month have probably been Modern Family because my brother downloaded the whole series onto my TV somehow and I'm now hooked (thanks Chris) and my music favourite is Lean On 
by Major Lazer & DJ Snake ft. MØ because I listen to it every day on the ways to school and it puts me in such a good mood for the day ahead so yeah:)
 Getting into the picture then, I felt like I needed to giveBatiste a little mention as, let's be fair, where would we be without this life savior🙏🏼I've been kind of addicted to Chupa Chups Big Babol Bubble Gum because I bought one of those mega packs and now everywhere I go there's a packet of them in a coat pocket or bag! My beauty favourites have been the Kiko Kiss Balm in 02 Apricot (suprise suprise), a No7 mini Skin Illuminator as this gives my face such a lovely glow and its so portable which is great, a No7 mini Extreme Length Waterproof mascara as I love the definition it gives to my lashes and I wore this whilst swimming/paddle boarding and my mascara stayed in place which I was unbelievably happy about as I was expecting to look like a Halloween bride:) And last but not least, Youth Dew by Estée Lauder. This is basically a body lotion but it's soo good! It absorbs almost within seconds and I use only about three pumps of it per leg/arm so it lasts for long too. It smells...(here we go, the dreaded explanation of the smell that no one can do) kind of like baby powder but with a hint of perfume. I'm sorry I suck at explaining scents but it smells good anyways! Finally, my book/magazine faves have been A Work In Progress by Connor Franta. How can I describe this book? It's the most inspirational yet relatable book I have ever read and I'm in love with it. The pictures inside are pure genius and I take it everywhere with me (I may have even dropped it in the sea once or twice..sorry Connor). For magazines, I've been loving Teen Vogue- April 2015 edition because who doesn't love a bit of Vogue (and let's be honest, the front of it just pulls you in really) and AnOther Magazine-Volume 2 Issue 1 Spring/Summer 2015, featuring Rihanna. This fashion mag has actually given me a few ideas for summer outfits and I'm in love with the pictures<3 but it is a tad heavy:( 
Well that's it guys, thanks for reading, and again I'm sorry I'm late uploading but you know what revisions like..the stress is ripping my brains out I swear! I just want to say that I haven't been payed or sponsored for anything in my May Favourites and everything said is completely my own opinion x 
Keep your eyes peeled for another post this Sunday (hopefully on time)
I love you all,

Beach Talk and Weird Pictures X

Beach Talk and Weird Pictures

This weekend I've been soso busy I can't even explain and it's probably going to be the same this weekend too, with exams and revision coming up and what not. This is why this weeks blog post is being put up today instead of Sunday, which is when I normally post, sorry bout that x

The past weekend has been very relaxed,  all the studying put aside. I tried to take some cute pictures down by the sea, I've been horse riding (eek) and went to a new bar which has opened along the beach front. Even though this isn't a very beauty related post, I've added a cheeky little review on the Kiko Kiss Balms that I've recently purchased and now take with me everywhere I go...whoops. I know this is very annoying because you've probably heard it millions of times before but I haven't been sponsored or payed to do this review in any way and all opinions are my own x

In the next couple of weeks, I'm not going to be doing anything special (studying, whoop whoop*_*)  so I was thinking about maybe doing a post on revision tips or a very early May favourites? I'm kind of stuck so it would mean a lot if you guys could give me a few ideas on the kinds of things you want to see on here<3 
So here's a couple of the pictures I took over the past weekend, don't judge because I am no professional photographer x 

Kiko Kiss Balms are my absolute favourite thing at the moment, I have the shades Tutti Frutti and Pink Grapefruit and both are absolutely gorgeous. They are super moisturising on your lips and add a bit of colour to them aswell, whilst having an SPF 15 in them to give your lips a bit of protection against the sun. As it's getting nearer to summer I'm finding that I tend to reach out to these  more as they're lighter on the lips, and obviously when your lips are dry or a bit sunburnt, these can feel like 
heaven! I would really recommend these, there's around 6 or 7 in the range I think? 
There's loads of different shades and every fruity lip balm smells like, ugh they are just incredible. Last time I checked they were €5.90 so they're not mega expensive aswell. Overall I give Kiko's Kiss Balms a 9/10 <3 x
Hope you liked reading and feel free to leave comments below<3

Beach and Tree Climbing x

Beach and Tree Climbing x

As you may of noticed by the title, today I'm talking about my weekend which mainly consisted of, you guessed it, climbing trees and going to the beach. Now I know this sounds quite weird, with me climbing trees and all but it was actually more fun (but painful) than expected. 
I spent my Saturday afternoon  down Calpe beach as I sat in a Spanish tapas cafe and munched on a "tostada". This is basically toast but on French bread, normally with tomato and oil. I found an a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e puppy in a little pet shop tucked away in a backstreet and I was very tempted to buy it. It was 10 weeks old and looked like a white fur ball with eyes..I instantly fell in love. I wasn't able to find out what breed it was but nevertheless, it was damn cute. 
Sunday was the day of my singing exams, so I walked down to my local singing club and practised for half an hour before holding my breath and hoping for the best as my examiner beckoned me in. Although I had been practising for a couple of months, the exam was over in a matter of minutes and it felt great! To celebrate I met my friends down the beach and hang out there for the rest of the afternoon, eating ice cream ( mint choc chip of course) and sunbathing with Sam Smith playing on repeat on my phone. It got to the point where it became so hot, my friends and I decided to sit under some palm trees for shade but instead we kind of just ended up climbing them. I was pretty proud of myself for this because I'm no pro when it comes to tree climbing/ hugging but the scrape on my chin that I got on my way down was pretty painful. Sadly, after that my phone ran out of charge so I wasn't able to take any more photos but here are a few that I did manage to take:) 


I hope you liked the photos, I thought it would be fun to change things up a bit and let you in on some of the stuff I get up to on the weekend:) Let me know if you want to see more of this kind of stuff! 
Lots of love,
