A week in Spain 🇪🇸 


Last week my best friend and I went to the Costa Del Sol to chill and spend some much needed time in the sun! Our flight was super early on the Monday morning so we stayed at the Premier Inn at Gatwick’s North Terminal, of course we had to get a pic of our matching pjs in the bathroom mirror because the lighting was just right. We arrived at Malaga Airport early on Monday morning and went and collected our car which was a horrible colour Fiat Panda, we then drove down to Fuengirola which is around 20 minutes south of Malaga. We found a parking space and our first trip was to the Zoo where there were so many school children on a tour but we managed to spend a couple of hours looking around, we also got a really nice picture so that was a bonus. After the zoo we walked through the lanes down to the beach where we found a lovely café for a spot of lunch, whilst we were there we met a couple who used to live in Hastings but now live out in Fuengirola full time talk about small world! After lunch we went for a wander down onto the beach and it was then time to head back to the car to drive to our resort. We stayed at Club Marbella which is part of the Crown Resorts, a chain of family resorts with something for everybody, around the Costa Del Sol. The apartment was lovely and we couldn’t wait to get down to the pool and chill. Most of our holiday was chilling down by the pool where I watched the first two seasons of Line of Duty on Netflix and I read the whole of Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, we also did a bit of swimming in the pool. On Wednesday we ate at the restaurant on the resort as there were Flamenco dancers performing and I wanted to see them. At dinner I found the most delicious snack/starter of deep fried camembert with cranberry sauce OMG it was amazing! The Flamenco dancers were awesome as usual and of course there had to be somebody who kissed them at the end. On the Thursday we went down the road to Little Italy for dinner. We had cheesy garlic bread which was so gooey and delicious, I then had Seafood Pasta cooked to perfection in a tomato sauce and for dessert it had to be the classic Coconut Ice Cream served in half of a coconut, it was an amazing last meal of the holiday and I can’t wait to go back there for food sometime soon! We flew back to Gatwick late on the Friday night and it was safe to say that we had a fabulously relaxing holiday. I would also like to say how immensely proud I am of my best friend for conquering a lot of fears on the holiday from flying on a plane, to driving in a foreign country and speaking to different people without prompting, I knew how difficult the holiday was for her and it is safe to say she was tested a lot that whole week! Thank you for an amazing experience best one!!

March Favourites 

It’s April!! Can you believe it?? So many things have happened in March and it is now time to share with you my favourite products which I have been using throughout the last month. 

First up is my new baby. I am now a proud owner of my new car and I couldn’t love it any more!! It was not the car I was going to test drive and if you’d have asked a month ago if I would own a car like it I would have said no way!! I now adore this car, it is so comfortable to drive for long commutes to work and has enough space to fit seven big bin bags in the boot and three people in the back less cramped than in my previous car. 


Second are my high waisted skinny jeans from Marks and Spencer!! I don’t know whether I put these in my last favourites but again I have been living in these jeans they are soft and comfortable and the colour is perfect for a spring windy day out!! I normally wear these jeans with some converse and a blouse type top. 


If you are looking for the perfect sweet snack that’s healthier than a chocolate bar then I can highly recommend these Trek original oak protein flapjacks. I found these in the Free From isle in the supermarket and they are so tasty and full of flavour!! They are also sold in cocoa and coconut flavour which are equally delicious. 


I have been having some trouble with my skin lately and it has been really sensitive but I have been using the Nivea refreshing toner to try and cool and soothe my skin and it has worked a treat! I use this before I go to bed or before I apply make up and it makes my skin so soft and ready for the day! 


My final favourite for the past month is the film the Immitation Game. I bought this solely because it has Benedict Cumberbatch in it who is one of my favourite actors. I can surprisingly say I love this film and would tell anybody I know to watch it. I have watched it around three times this month and it is such a beautiful tale about a man who lived in my home town. 


What have been your favourite products for March? Let me know what you think I should try in the products I would love to hear suggestions!!

My Top Ten High Street Stores

Hello everybody,
I thought it was time to share with you which high street stores you would most likely find me in when I am out shopping, these are a mixture of stores from clothing to home ware. I don’t really like going shopping that much but when I do there are certain stores that I just have to go in whilst I am in the mood for spending my money!

The first store is one of my absolute favourites because of the cheap prices and the array of products you can get! If you haven’t guessed it from that description then I am hoping that you have never heard of Primark. This is a store that I can spend at least half an hour in going around and then coming out with at least two big bags full of clothes, shoes, home products and accessories. This is also one of my favourite stores because it sells something for everybody and although a lot of the clothes are always in season it still brings in new items along with new exciting things that find their way into my basket.


The Steamer Trading Cook shop is my idea of kitchen heaven!! If you are an avid baker or cook then this is a store for you. I don’t yet have my own kitchen but I would basically buy the whole of the store if I could because the quality of the products is so good. This is a bit more of a pricey high street store but you will come out with something in your hand be it a new mug or a silicone spatula.


If you are a shopper who cannot go home without a new accessory for your house or bedroom then Home Sense is the shop for you. This is again on of my favourite stores which will receive a lot of business when I get my own place. The products are of a beautiful quality and it has almost everything you could dream of. This is the perfect store for those little ideas if you love all things interior design!


My fourth shop is probably a shop that a lot of people have to go into if they are close to one because the scent is just so enticing! Yes I am talking about Lush. I can easily come out of this shop with more than I intended to buy but that is because I know that whatever I buy will be of good quality and totally worth the money. Even if you just want a different bath experience by trying some new bubbles out then get a bubble bar from this place!


We’ve reached half way on my top ten and number five is another store that I go to for clothes. River Island is a store that makes great clothes that will last practically forever! It is also the store that I can rely on for having the latest trends from the fashion world at not to expensive prices. It also a good store because it sells clothes for men, women and children so you don’t have to spend to long shopping for everybody if you can find what you want in one store.


I love going into Next if I am again looking for clothes that I know will keep for as long as possible because although it is a bit more pricey they also do some beautiful home products and some great work wear clothing for cheap prices. Next is a store that a lot of people would associate with kids and middle aged women but if you look hard enough you can find something for everybody! You also have to be a quick thinker when it is Sale time at Next because as soon as stock is reduced it is near enough sold out.


FatFace is another store that would be associated mostly with middle aged women. But I have purchased three pairs of my favourite shorts from here and they have lasted me for years I also bought my favourite holiday swimming costume from here and it goes on every holiday with me! FatFace is one of those shops that you can go into and if you look hard enough you will find something you love!


Zara brings me to my eight favourite High street store again for home and clothes. Zara is another pricier high street store but it is so lovely and has some really nice products. It is another on trend younger persons clothes store and isn’t quite as generous with its sizes as some of the other stores I have mentioned but I can still get some great items in there for a bit more of a dressier day.


Number nine is Schuh which true to its name is a shoe shop. I love this store because you can get so many different brands under one roof and the prices are reasonable. All of the stores I have been in have also been light and airy and the staff are so polite. If you want some shoes or just like to look at shoes then you have to go to this store!


The final store on my list is Urban Outfitters. Urban Outfitters is one of those stores that you can either love or hate but I love it! The ranges of clothing are generous in style and sizing and some of the home ware products you can get are really quirky. This isn’t a store that I over indulge in but it certainly doesn’t get left out on a shopping trip.


So there you have it! My top ten high street stores. What stores would be on your top ten list and why? Let me know in the comments, also tell me what stores you think I would love.

My Top Three Workout Outfits

Hello everybody,
 

At the moment I feel like I am spending most of my life in either work outfits or workout clothing so I thought it was time I shared with you my top three workout outfits. I love working out and trying new classes and I love having a suitable but also quite a stylish outfit to wear to the classes I go to for example I don’t want to wear the same clothes that I would wear to a combat class, to go to a yoga class.

 I absolutely adore these West Coast leggings from Alo Yoga they are available in three colours but ironically I would wear these to a Yoga class. The have a stirrup bottom so that they don’t ride up your leg but they still look acceptable enough to go bare foot at a yoga class if you so wish.

Legging

To go with these leggings I like a brightly coloured top such as this vixen fitted muscle tank in the colour atlas. This is also available from Alo Yoga and has beautiful detail with a sheer but not to revealing cut out.

Tank

To finish this look I would add: the Alo Yoga atlas glow bra which can be worn on its own with the leggings; these Nike Presto fly trainers in white and the sunset jack from Alo Yoga. This outfit is such a light and summery outfit and I think it is perfect for a yoga class whatever the weather.

Bra
Trainer
Jacket

My second outfit is what I am most likely to wear out running because I like aeration and not to feel like my clothes are clinging to me when I run. The main part of this outfit are obviously the running shoes and I like the Nike energy boost three shoes in all black.

Trainer

I am in love with this Sapopa novita stretch-jersey leggings because they are mostly black but have the yellow and blue which do also provide reflection for darker evening runs.

Legging

The Under Armour show stopper spacer t-shirt is a perfect complement for this outfit and also doesn’t restrict your outfit to being all black. It is in a midnight navy colour and is light and aerated which is what you want when out on a run. To finish this outfit off I would have a high support sports bra such as this Ivy Park racerback stretch-jersey sports bra in black and this Lucas Hugh core stretch-jersey running jacket.

Top
Bra
Jacket

The third and final outfit is perfect for a high intensity class such as a spin session or combat class! the bulk of this outfit is Sweaty Betty but I find it very difficult most of the time to wear workout clothes from different brands. These contour crop workout leggings are jazzy but sophisticated and I love the pattern of them.

Legging

To go with my jazzy leggings I of course also have to have a jazzy sports crop which is a medium supprt bra as well and has a racerback for serious comfort and this oversized sweat which I adore for all obvious reasons in it one being oversized and two being black! I would finish this look with the New balance WX811 trainers in black.

Bra top
Sweat
Trainer

So these are my top three outfits. Obviously there are so many more that I love and want to buy/own already but that’s the way it has to be! What do you like to workout in? let me know in the comments.

February Favourites

Hello everybody, 

Here are my favourite items that I have been getting a lot of use out of over the past month! Can you believe that we are nearly in march already!

I bought this check pastel scarf from Primark a little while ago because it was so large and such lovely colours. You can wear it as a large scarf or bring down over your shoulders as a shawl type scarf. It is so lovely and warm for those days when you don’t want a thick coat on. 


I have been eating so much salmon this month and I have been loving it. I have been trying to add some fish into my diet through my meal plans and weight loss journey. Baked salmon with new potatoes and green beans is such a light and nutritious meal. 

My third favourite item is my tan Cambridge Satchel company bag which I got for my 16th birthday. I have found it the perfect size to use as my work bag as it can hang off of my shoulder and I can keep my hands free for opening and closing all of the gates I have to go through to get to my office. 


Fourth is the Soap and Glory hand food. It is a great moisturiser and is the perfect size to keep in your bag. It smells amazing as well and leaves your hands feeling soft and smooth without being too oily. 


Finally is a book by Paige Toon called the one we fell in Love with. This book has been so good that I finished it within three days. It is gripping and a moving story that makes you laugh and cry. I will definitely be re-reading this on my holiday soon!! 


So these are my February favourites what are yours?? Leave them in the comments below.

January Favourites 

Hello everybody,

It is time for my first favourites post of the year. There are quite a few favourites for January that I can’t wait to share with you! 

First up is my new job!! I absolutely love my new job and it was the best move I ever made taking it. I started it in January so of course it had to go in my January favourites!! I have already learnt so much and have so much more to learn. 

Second are my M&S super skinny jeggings. I love love love these jeggings and I have them in black, dark indigo and indigo. They can make any look smart or casual and I have been living in them since I purchased four pairs!! 


Third is the Head and Shoulders smooth and silky hair shampoo. This shampoo has made my hair so light and gives it such a fresh and clean scent and smell lasting for a couple of days. 

I have been obsessed with Nākd Bakewell Tart bars this month. They are delicious and are a healthy and nutritious snack that are perfect for on the go!! 


Another purchase that I have been obsessed with using in the cold weather is my Penguin mug from New Look! I love this novelty mug which comes with a matching coaster and I take it everywhere with me. 


My final January favourite item is the Tanya Burr matte lip in the shade Martha Moo. This lipgloss leaves a fabulous finish without making your lips super shiny. 


These were my January favourites what were yours??

My Go To Makeup Products!

Hello everybody,

I thought it was time I shared with you my go to makeup products, which I use to create a simple and fresh look for work when I am waking up a 5am. I will leave a link to all of the products that I can find online.

  1. Primer – my go to primer for any makeup look is the Rimmel London lasting finish primer. To me this primer creates a smooth and matte base for any look that you are going to try and copy. Primer
  2. Foundation – my favourite foundation is the Mac Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 in the colour NC15. This foundation also leaves you with a Matte finish and is so easy to use to cover the whole face. This foundation comes in 44 shades so you will be sure to find one which suits your complexion. Foundation
  3. Concealer – my concealer is another Mac product and it is the mineralise concealer in the shade NW15. This shade is a bit lighter than my foundation and blends really well with dark patches on the skin. Concealer
  4. Blush – you will start to see a pattern with my face makeup as my blush is the Mac Pro longwear blush in the shade Stubborn. This blush created a semi-matte finish and is perfect for those who suffer with oily or combination skin as it lasts throughout the day and you just have to top up your powder. Blush
  5. Powder – my final go to Mac product is the Mineralize skinfinish natural powder in the shade Light. This powder just gives that finished clean look to your face makeup and is lovely and soft. Powder
  6. Eyeshadow – for my eyeshadow I turn to my trusty Tanya Burr Fairytale eye palette. For my everyday simple look i use just two colours from this palette the cream tea and the velvet cushion it creates a fresh look blending these two colours on your eye and adds a little bit of sparkle. Eye Palette
  7. Mascara – my everyday mascara is the Benefit They’re real mascara as it enlongates my already long lashes and means that I don’t have to try and put any fake lashes on in the morning. This mascara lasts throughout the day and you only need to apply one coat to your lashes for a volumised luscious look. Mascara
  8. Eyebrows – I fill my eyebrows in with my trusty L’oreal superliner brow artist in the colour dark blonde. This is a quick and easy way to get your brows looking fuller on an early morning start. Brows
  9. Lips – Finally my go to lip is an actual lipstick and it is by Avon in the colour Blush. This is a lovely pinky but natural colour that just completes an non in your face look. This lipstick is nice to apply and doesn’t turn your lips all tacky. Lipstick


What do you all think of these choices let me know in the comments. I also now have a Facebook page (AwesomelyWorthless) so you can follow me on there for updates on new blogs and what I am up to!!
