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?
