...okay, a grand long weekend out, but it's snappier and, let's face it, who can resist a Wallace and Gromit reference?
I know it's sad, but I love packing, it's very therapeutic! So I was very annoyed when I realised I had less than an hour to pack, so I put on some 'banging tunes' and just about managed it. It's become a sort of tradition with me to forget at least one crucial thing, I almost get excited to see what it is when I arrive at my destination. This time it was my laptop which was annoying seeing as the olympics are on, however it could have been a lot worse (last time I forgot my glasses AND my contact lenses -.-)
I did get a few, admittedly rather shakey, pictures of my clothing, skincare and makeup travel essentials though :)
|Shoes: Topshop sale & Primark.|
|Jacket: Zara, Grey Top: Topshop, Light Grey Top: Topshop sale, Peplum Top: Zara Sale.|
|Benefit triple performing moisturiser, Benefit toner (it's a sample thats nearly run out, I'm definitely going to buy as soon as I can raise the funds, it's so good!), liz earle Cleanser.|
|Porefessional from Benefit, Benefit 'Are they real?' Mascara, Benefit 'hello Flawless' foundation (I like benefit :P), Natural Collection Blush, Wide Awake Eyebrow Palette free from a Jelly Pong Pong gift bag.|
I really have been loving the Lush shampoo bars, they are a lot more convenient than liquid shampoo and you get a lot more for your money (they cost £5.25 and last me 2 months.) This is my second one, 'Jumping Juniper' I plan on writing a review on a few of them in the coming weeks, on my blog :)
Wales is a beautiful place and we got a chance to do a little bit of sight-seeing. We went to a rather disappointing rundown seaside town but we found a gem in the form of a kitsch American Diner-esque cafe/ restaurant that did really good food. We also went to a castle! Who doesn't love a castle?
I made a friend.
Finally, I forgot face powder so I popped to boots to get some and I couldn't resist this cheeky purchase:
