Spain Haul feat. Barcelona & Salou ~

4 June 2014

Hola Amigos! Long time no post.. *Inserts sad face*

As you may or may not have seen, I haven't posted on here in fair bit of time. There is good reasoning though and am getting straight back on the job! Anyway, this evening I wanted to share with you my trip to Salou, Spain with my school for our netball tour, which I briefly mentioned in my last post. This post will mainly contain photos of the items I bought there and at the airport; I will also include a few snaps of the hotel, maybe a couple of shots of myself and the luxurious beach opposite our hotel. Vamos!!!

This was my first naughty  purchase at the airport, but I mean, how could I resist duty free makeup? Exactly, you just can't. I ended up buying this Mac Eyeshadow in 'Cranberry' for just £10.40 - amazing! I have recently been loving this sort of colour and have been wanting this shadow for a while so I am very happy with my purchase.

YSL packaging is gorgeous!

The view from my balcony was beautiful. 

We visited a theme park on the second day and I bought this slush puppy. Despite its photogenic presence, the taste was absolutely vile and I ended up chucking it away after a few slurps...

This photo isn't particularly great but I got two braids on the beach. I think they look really pretty with my hair up or down.

Right, now enough of the holiday photos. Let us get onto the items I bought whilst out there...

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum - I bought this in Boots the day before I left for Spain. This is kind of a cheat as I didn't exactly by it out there but my intention of buying this was specifically for the trip. I have heard a lot about this serum but never actually decided to try it out until now. I am so glad I did because I am absolutely in love with it. It honestly feels so healthy and light on the skin, whilst giving a smooth,even and medium coverage. Long lasting too! Definitely worth a try and would highly recommend trying this out if you aren't a fan of heavyweight full coverage foundations.

The rest of the products I bought are all from Barcelona. I ended up buying a lot of gifts for my family and boyfriend because they had lots and lots and lots of shops to the area of Barcelona we went to. Due to spending a lot on my family etc, I decided to get these two post cards as memorabilia of the trip. I really like buying little things like this as a way of remembering places,trips or events I've been to. It is always really fun to look back on all of them and reminisce everything you've done over the past year or past five years etc.

H&M was one of the first proper shops my friend and I went in. I only wanted to buy a few little bits for myself because I knew I wanted to spend quite a lot on something from a shop I will be mentioning next. Therefore, I only bought this little makeup blender, which was only 2.95 euros (£2.40) and two face masks - they were 1.99 euros each. I was intrigued by all the different face masks because a lot of them were scents I had never heard before. I am especially looking forward to smelling the dragon fruit one because I love fruity scents and I can't wait to see what the Dead Sea Mineral Mask will do to my skin. (I have heard that seaweed works wonders on your skin - let's hope it works!)

AAAAAHHHHH! I literally freaked out when I saw Sephora. OMG! I was ridiculously excited and I spent a loooong time in there deciding what I wanted to buy. I thought long and hard about what I wanted and I knew that I wanted to buy something from Sephora rather than Nars or Chanel, as it is quite hard to purchase items from Sephora in England. Anyway, I settled for this Pro Lesson Palette for Green Eyes. I cannot wait to try this out and I will most definitely be uploading a review on this product, where I will be talking in more depth about it - keep your eyes peeled. The cute lady also popped in a couple of Givenchy perfume samples into my bag.

I was struggling what to buy my parents from Barcelona. So I thought I would just buy them some sweet treats to share between them. There was a really nice chocolate/sweet store and all the goodies looked so yummy, I thought I would buy them from there. I may have to ask them to lend me a couple to try. 

I have already got the holiday blues and want to go back already. I wish I could have taken my family, best friend and boyfriend with me so much because it would have been great fun! Thanks all for reading and make sure to leave me your comments below on what you want my next post to be about.

What do you want me to write about next? Review/Favourites/OOTD?

Goodbye Xx
