Oh what a week! It took a slight adjustment to get me into holiday mode (cheers work and head cold I blame the both of you!) but after a bucket full of pancakes, a lot of damage to my bank balance and a sunburnt knee, it’s all starting to feel more real. Our Santa Monica adventures have come to an end and now we are along the cost by Huntington Beach. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get my head around the lack of high streets in America but thanks to our little bug box Kia we are hitting the roads and of course even more shops!

This Week I’ve Been…

Spending a glorious day at Universal – when you come to LA you have to do the theme parks. It’s like a holiday tradition! After far too much faff picking up the car we finally made our way to Universal Walk and indulged in a rather large tub of YoghurtLand frozen yoghurt before hitting the rides. FYI Simpsons is the best ride and the Minions was banana perfection

Finally getting my mitts on the Lorac Pro Palette – it finally happened! After finding myself in a Ulta with one right in front of me, it was impossible to resist. One of the most hyped up and hard to get palettes is now mine! It’s quite funny seeing it stocked up in abundance now ;) However, that gold one, wow!

Shopping at the Grove – one of my favourite places to hit the shops is the Grove. With it’s outdoor vibes, fab restaurant choices and massive Charlotte Tilbury stand is Nordstrom, if you find yourself in the area make sure you swing by this shoppers paradise

Testing out some new beauty bits – being on holiday also means trying out the new makeup bits I picked up along our travels. Two new additions came from duty free in the form of this Tom Ford Cream Shadow Base in Spiced and Chanel CC Cream. So far both are winners in my books!

Charlotte Tilbury hauling – after hunting down the impressive stand at Nordstroms it would have been rude if I didn’t going slightly overboard. With a new foundation, concealer, shadow and mask, I did just that! I may have thrown a sharpener in for good measure as well ;)
