weekend away in Barcelona

 For my 21st Birthday I received the most amazing gift! A weekend in Barcelona, one of my favorite weekends. Since turning 21, I've been having so much fun. This weekend I will be going away to Brighton. Barcelona is such a fab city to visit! The best part about Barcelona, is the fact that city allows you to move around quite easily , the underground is a lifesaver. We both felt really safe walking around at night, a trip the beach at 3am is always fun. We stayed at the Catalonia Hotel, really close to the underground. I strongly recommend the hotel, if you going for a short break.
Nightlife in Barcelona is great too! If you go near the beach, there are plenty of clubs, you will have many options. The food was yummy, although I don't remember the names of the restaurants we went to eat at. On Sunday pretty much everything was close, but there is a large Mall which is open everyday. The fountain show was another great attraction to see, yes I am a girl and I went to visit the Barcelona Stadium. Such a great experience, our hotel was only 5min away from the stadium. I don't really know what else to say, I am really bad at writing travel posts, next time I promise that I will try to have a better memory for the names of places we have visited. In 3 days we manged to visit pretty much every popular attraction. Have you ever visited Barcelona?

may favourites

Finally a new post on BurningBlonde, life got in the way. I am slowly getting back on track with everything, please forgive me. It's June already, May was just amazing. My best friend booked a weekend in Barcelona for both of us, I will soon do a post on that. Barcelona is such a fab city! Let's get on with the actual post. 

Lousie Young Foundation Brush: One of my favourite brushes to apply foundation, love the size, as well as the softness. ViviannaDoesMakeup made me purchase it, she kept on raving about the brush, glad I bought it. It's amazing!
Dior Star Foundation: When I went to Barcelona this was the only one foundation I've taken with me(normally I will take 2foundations), love the light to medium coverage it gives, the glowy finish. Last on the skin for good 6hours. I will soon do a full review, watch out for that.
Maybelline Fit Stick Foundation: Whilst shopping in Boots I was looking for a creamy contouring product. I came across the Stick Foundation, but instead of picking my own shade, I've picked up a darker colour. Works so well as a contour product. Although I might be naughty and get my hands on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour palette, want it so bad!
Beauty Blender Solid Soap Cleanser: I find solid cleansers so much better for cleaning your brushes. You can just rub your brushes on the solid soap and then rinse the brush. 
MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer: Finally got back into using the Studio Sculpt Concealer, I never really liked it at first, currently I'm obsessed with it! Covers the under eye area so well. I've just checked MAC website and I think they no longer make it.
Batiste XXL Volume Dry Shampoo: You all know how much I hate Batiste Dry Shampoos, but this one is a winner for me, whenever I need more Volume in my hair. Although on the next day, you do need to wash your hair straight away, as they will feel even more greasy. Other than that I really like the scent. 

What's are your May favourites?

april favourites 2015

A late monthly favourites, purely because life got in the way. After my 21st Birthday I just felt slightly unmotivated to deal with the blog. Next weekend I am flying to Barcelona, I received such a lovely weekend away treat from my best friend. She is my star! Okay, lets get on with the post. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is my new favourite mascara! Makes my lashes look really long and full. You can easily build up the mascara, I mostly like the fact that it doesn't smudge, as much as all my other mascaras.
Eyeko Lash Curler* it's my second Eyeko Lash Curler and I love it! Sadly my lashes are never too curly, so I need extra help, to add some curl. The shape of Eyeko Curler is just perfect for my eye shape.
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm my oh my! This product is such a great under make-up base! Your foundation will stick to you face and will last all day.  I really do need get my hands on full size.
Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Repair Conditioner a cheap but  a great hair conditioner. Leaves my hair feeling really soft. I mostly like the fact, that it doesn't weight my hair down.
Lush the Comforter bubble bath is my all time favourite. Who doesn't like pink baths? Bubbly baths are my favourite. The Comforter is great because you can break it apart and use it for 2 or 3 baths. 
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub  my all time favourite scrub. Whenever I want softer skin, scrub is just a must! I love the scent of Sugar Crush.
