My Holiday In Cyprus


Hello Everyone, I haven't really been posting a lot for the past few months for a number of reasons, one of them being exams and just a load of other complicated things propping up!

More recently I went on holiday to Cyprus with my family. It was simply amazing! We stayed in a place called Paphos which is by the coast on the western side of the island. We stayed in a lovely villa with a shared pool. The villa was really nice and spacious, it was probably one of the nicest places I've stayed in abroad.

We went mid August which is one one the hottest times of the year to visit Cyprus, and trust me it was HOT HOT HOT! One day it reached 37 degrees. Luckily we stayed by the coast which meant we had a nice airy breeze throughout our stay, but I imagine if you were to stay in the centre of the island the heat may have been quite unbearable for this time of the year.

During our stay we visited many amazing sites of Cyprus, one of those being the famous birthplace of Aphrodite - the Greek goddess of love. The view there was absolutely amazing and I'd really recommend that you'd visit it there if you ever go to Cyprus.

If you've ever been to Cyprus before please leave a comment below, I'd love to hear about your travel adventures! :)

L'Oreal, Extraordinary Oil Review

Hair oils have all of a sudden become very popular, so I thought it was about time I jumped aboard the bandwagon and bought one myself. The one I bought, if you haven't guessed already was the L'Oreal, Extraordinary Oil. The product comes in two varieties, one for coloured hair and one for all hair types. As I've never dyed my hair before, I decided to go for for the one suitable for all hair types.

You can apply it on wet or dry hair, whether you'd like it as a finishing touch or if you'd like to apply it on damp hair to protect it before styling...it's entirely up to you. I tend to use it after washing my hair, to make it feel soft and nourished once it's dried. I normally just use one pump as I don't have extremely thick hair and I don't want to make it feel too greasy. But depending on the thickness and length of your hair, you can use however much you want.

Overall, I've been using this product for over a month now, and I've been LOVING the results. I can't get over how soft it's making my hair feel, especially as I use lots of heat to style my hair which makes it quite dry. As this is the first oil I have purchased for my hair, I can't compare it to any other hair products similar to this, but I'm sure I'll re-purchase this product once I've run out.

Simple Cleanser & Toner - Review

I have been using the Simple cleanser & toner for a number of years now and it has become one of my favourite skin care brands. It's inexpensive, kind to the skin and great for all skin types - which is a real bonus!. It specialises in sensitive skin and contains no harmful chemicals or perfume, just pure and natural ingredients that you can really on and trust.

I normally use this cleanser every night after I have washed my face with warm water. I put a bit on to a cotton pad and then rub it all of my face. It feels so nourishing when applied and my face always feels squeaky clean afterwards...and most of all it removes dirt, oil and any make up from my skin...

I love the toner as well! It also makes my skin feel extremely fresh after using it, which is always something that I look for in a toner. One of the great things about this product is that it doesn't make my face feel greasy at all compared with some other facial toners that I have used in the past.

Overall if your looking for a nourishing cleanser and toner that will leave your face feeling soft and refreshed,  these are the ones to go for!

Have any of you tried any of these products before? If you have I'd love to hear from you ...leave your comments below! :)

My Favourite MAC Lipsticks

One of my favourite MAC products are their lipsticks, they're simple gorgeous, enough said.

Now although I don't own a huge amount of mac lipsticks out of the few that I do own I have a few favourites. These are: Hue, Creme Cup and Coral Bliss, just because I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM :) :)  I normally tend to go for pale pinky and coral colours when I go for a lipstick because they tend to suit me better than other shades. Which is the reason why I love these shades so much. Hue and Creme Cup are quite a subtle lipstick which is why I love them so much, they are the type of lipsticks that you can get away with wearing everyday. I like having a few lipsticks that I can wear on a daily basis so these 3 are good few to keep in your handbag and on the go when you just want a pretty but natural looking lipstick. The only one out my favourites which is a less nude colour is Coral Bliss. This is my favourite colour to wear in the spring/summer months, it looks gorgeous and yet it is still not too bright so like the others you can wear it on a daily basis which is what I love about it.

The only real downside about these lipsticks is because mac is a high end brand they are quite expensive, they are £14.00 each which isn't extremely expensive but then again it's not exactly cheap either. So when you come to choosing a lipstick from mac look up reviews about the one your thinking of getting, just to make sure you don't regret it, which I haven't with any of my MAC products so far!!

Do you have any favourite MAC lipsticks? If so I'd love to hear about them! Comment below your favourite ones :)

(If you'd like me to do an more detailed individual review on any of these lipsticks comment below)
