This year my Mum decided that we would do something different for her birthday, so last Thursday me, my Mum and sister boarded a train to go to Gay Pari!!!
All i really wanted from the weekend was to go to Sephora (well i do love makeup!!) and to eat food!!

We started with breakfast and coffees on the train to London and then when we arrived at St Pancras had a glass of Champagne at Searcys Champagne Bar (the longest in Europe).  While on the Eurostar we had Champagne and strawberries :)

We were staying in an apartment rather than a Hotel which gave us more of a feeling for the local Paris, on the Thursday evening we went to a gorgeous bistro and had an amazing 3 course meal with wine (obviously!!) i enjoyed a ravolini starter, confit of duck for the entree and tarte tatin with ice cream for dessert :)

Friday the weather was horrendous but we carried on and did the tourist bits!!

My favourite part of the day was all the amazing cakes we encountered (ate and just perved over!) IN Angelina's (Coco Chanels old hangout) and Laduree i was in heaven, Macarons and pastries as far as the eye could see, if i lived in France i would be twice the size i am at the moment and thats not a good thing!

 Being in love with beauty and makeup my trip would not have been complete without going to lets face it our mecca, Sephora!!  I still have no idea why we dont have them in the UK or that they dont ship here!! Anyway as much as i wanted to buy absolutely everything i limited myself and purchased some Sephoras own daily brush cleaner, a Sephoras blusher and a new Ciate nail set i am in lve with this!! (will do a separate post on it! dont you worry)

While i was there i decided to keep my makeup simple and classic with a winged liner (maybelline gel - reviewed by moi here) MAC mineralize skinfinish in medium dark, Maybelline mascara and the ILAH brow kit from the #northmeetup.

All in all it was a great trip filled with cake, beauty, tourism, wine and family, who else has been and what were your fave parts of the trip?

New brand calling: RE:store

So this is a little bit of a break from the norm but i decided you fbloggers had to know about this new brand ive fallen in love with.  So i found RE:store through a friends Instagram she had purchased one of there amazing pieces and i instantly started lusting!!

RE:store is a new fashion brand based in Manchester they are looking: 'To create high quality, unique urban apparel that inspires and encourages our customer's to join our RE:store RE:volution which never settles for normal, always strives for individuality and aims to provide our customer's with the confidence to define their own idea of original...' I love the idea of taking vintage pieces and adding a new modern edge to the garment is an amzaing idea, plus its right up my street!

These have got to be my faves items of the collection at the moment and at only £18 an absolute steal when payday comes around i will deffo be treating myself, and maybe my boyfriend (if he's lucky!) as theyve recently uploaded pics of some gorgeous tee's with neck embellishment!

I really hope brands like this get supported and turn into something amazing!  Please go check RE:store out on Facebook HERE

What do you guys think??
