THE MUST-HAVE NAIL POLISH FOR THIS SPRING



Gone are the days when I was a fanatic of bright and neon nail polishes. I am now a grown woman who only wears professional looking nude shades... just kidding. I am not a grown woman, professional and I do wear more shades than flesh coloured polishes.

However, I am definitely a love of more natural or dark colours simply because I find them more flattering on my nails. I was recently walking around Covent Garden with Kate when we stumbled upon this store called 3INA. To be honest, the only reason why I decided to walk in was to take a photo of the beautifully arranged and colour coded make up and I wasn't planning on buying anything. 

But who can say no to £4,95 nail polish? Certainly not me. 


I got this perfect nude shade, I had been looking for a similar colour for so long but I could never find the exact tone I wanted. The name of the colour is 105 and the fact that they don't have cool names for every shade is probably the only downside. 

For such a low price I didn't have high expectations but it is honestly better than any of my OPI nail polishes. I only need two coats and it lasts close to a week - which is something I can't say for most of my nail polishes. The packaging is super simple and sleek, something I personally love. 

The lady at the store told us that  the brand is known for their cream eyeshadows, they apparently have loads of different shades and they stay on no matter what. I am not a big eyeshadow person but if you are, check them out! I don't know if they have any other physical stores but I know their products are sold on ASOS so you can get them wherever you are!

EXPLORING MALLORCA | OUT AND ABOUT

I love the sea, I find it fascinating. The infinite different shades of blue, the slow yet violent movement of the water. Maybe it's because I grew up in an island or maybe it's because I now live in this crazy massive city and whenever I see the sea I get this sense of freedom and peacefulness. 

When I went back home to Mallorca about a week ago I went on a little day trip with my dad and my sister. Our final destination was this place I had never heard of called S'Estaca in the North of the island, which is a tiny beautiful town right by the sea with incredible views to the cliffs. It is not accessible by car so we had to walk for about 40 min but it was definitley worth it. 






The day we went it was very windy, the giant waves crashing onto the cliffs looked stunning and it reminded me of Hawaii (even though I've actually never been to Hawaii...). We also found a gorgeous spot to have some breakfast - there was this incredible terrace with the most beautiful views I have ever seen. It beats that time I had breakfast overlooking the Pyrenees and that is saying something. 








We got very lucky because even though it was ridiculously windy, it was also super sunny so everything looked extra beautiful. The whole town was pretty much empty since it's not peak season yet, making the whole experience that bit more peaceful and relaxing. If you're in Mallorca or are planning on going soon, you should definitley visit this place!

THE PERFECT JOGGERS

Whilst I am not a jet setter just yet, I do travel back and forth between Spain and London quite often. A few years ago I always tried to look cute à la Victoria Beckham when boarding a plane. Now, I just try to be as comfortable as possible. 

It doesn’t matter how long the flight is, there is nothing I hate more than wearing tight jeans and having to sit down in that tiny seat with barely any leg space. I’ve also stopped wearing any make up whatsoever because dry airplane air + foundation = skin disaster. 

I am not one to share my outfits very often on my blog but I think I’ve found my go-to airport look and I don’t think I’ve ever been happier (that might or might not be a slight exaggeration). Most people reach for leggings when travelling - they look cute and it’s like wearing nothing. The problem is they’re not very warm and I always get a bit chilly in planes. 


The other day I switched my go-to leggings for my new Nike joggers* and, in spite of the extra four hours I had to spend in that plane because if a delay, I was the comfiest I have ever been. I was warm and I honestly felt like I was wearing PJs. To make it even better, they look kinda trendy so it seems like you’re actually trying. I got a size XS so that they would fit a bit tighter and look more chic - I think my plan worked. *goes away and pats herself on the back*


I paired my joggers with my black Nike trainers, a basic white top from ASOS and an oversized denim jacket. Because the outfit was quite simple I added some accessories - my Daniel Wellington watch, a Kate Spade gold bangle and some earrings. Et voilà, you have the perfect outfit for the airport!

WHAT I'VE BEEN WATCHING RECENTLY




There's nothing better than getting home after a very long and exhausting day, taking a shower, grabbing something to eat and put on your favourite TV show. Recently I have been branching out a bit and discovering new shows - ya know, gotta keep it fun. 

Some of these shows have bene running for a while but I've just got into them, and some others are fairly new. But they are all equally amazing and addictive so be warned you will want to watch more than one episode at a time. 

Scandal


Where do I even start with Scandal. It's got me HOOKED, I am not joking when I say I watched 5 seasons in the space of three weeks. It's so intense and every episode leaves you wanting more and more. If you've never heard of it, it focuses on Olivia Pope who runs a crisis management firm who is also involved with the United States President and the White House. If you like a good drama, this series is for you.


Riverdale


This one started only recently and it reminds me a lot of Pretty Little Liars so if you like PLL, you'll probably like Riverdale too. It is based on the characters by Archie Comics and Cole Sprouse is one of the main characters so that alone made me want to watch it, well that and my friend Kate (@katewilson96 on Instagram) raving about it. 

It follows a group of teenagers after the sudden death of one of the school's cool kids, hence why it reminds me of PLL so much. 

The Catch


I started watching The Catch after it premiered last spring - and to be honest the only reason I watched it was because I love anything Shonda Rhimes makes, that woman is an absolute genius. As expected, I loved the series and it is now one of my favourites.

Alice Vaughan is the main character, who runs a private investigation private firm and becomes a victim of fraud after finding out her fiancé isn't who he says it is. I'm not going to say anything else because I don't want to spoil it for you, but trust me it is a great show!

What have you been watching recently?
