Turkey | Hill Walk


Our 2nd to last day was over cast which meant to sun wasn't going to feel like sun bathing weather, although still warm! Which is why we decided to check out some of the hills we can see from our balcony. I am trying to point at our hotel in one of the pictures but I'm slightly off - blame Matthew for his bad photography skills, making me think I'm in line with the hotel haha! It is in fact more the left ^_^ The view from up there was amazing! Pictures don't give it justice to be honest but it was a view! You could see the sea & the mountains behind the hotels - so beautiful! I really don't want to go home tomorrow..

Turkey | Dora Beach Shesha Garden


This is the prettiest shesha garden ever. I love the vibe & atmosphere here! The bean bags make it so comfy & chilling & it's also just off the beach too. Me & Matthew grabbed ourselves a couple of cocktails each whilst we smoked our shesha, before heading out on the town! They always have salsa dancing on a stage in the centre of the gardens here which is cool. The music always makes everyone in the mood to join in which is good to see. I love how nobody has a care in the world on holiday & just does what ever it is they want to do. Love it here so much!

Turkey | OOTN


I always keep my outfits simple on holiday. I take my whole wardrobe with me every year as if I'm ever going to wear even half of it lol. I always over do it with heels to & never wear those. I live in heels at home, I'm always in them when I go out for food or drinks or even shisha but on holiday it's just not practical when every where takes quite a walk to get there. So as most nights, I chose a comfortable pair of shorts with a plain stroppy top, sandals & bag to match; as well as some simple gold accessories to dress it up a little. I wish I'd gotten a close up picture of my makeup this night too as I went for some colours. Well, I stuck to my glowy bronzed look & added a generous amount blue/green eyeliner under my bottom waterline for a pop of colour - looks gorgeous with a tan! It's so hard to remember everything to blog on holiday haha! Always in a rush to get out to enjoy every minute that when it comes to writing it up, only then do I realise how much I've missed! Nevermind ay? :)

Turkey | Boat Trip



This part of my holiday is ALWAYS my favourite. Boat, beautiful scenery, sun & that lovely breeze. The boat trip includes sailing around the 7 mini islands of Turkey, whilst stopping off in beautiful, crystal clear parts of the sea for a swim. There's also a small village we stop off at which is great for shopping! You can get some amazing bargains in Turkey, which I usually make the most of every year. However, this year I wasn't in much of the shopping mood & instead just wanted to relax & enjoy the sun. We still headed into the village for a walk though & of course, we had to have a slush puppy stop! Matthew definitely looks like he's modelling to promote that slush with that pose! Work it babyyyy! Hahaha! :D

Turkey | Day 1


Ahhh sunshine! Is there actually a nicer feeling than the sun hitting your skin with a nice warm breeze to follow? I think not. We spent our first day in Turkey just relaxing & soaking up the rays, not to mention enjoying the breath-taking views from our balcony of the hills in the far distance. Turkey wins our hearts every single time; which is the reason we continue to re-visit at least once a year. This is the first time I've also uploaded a body picture!! It's been hard for me to ever feel comfortable with myself, knowing I don't fit into societies idea of 'perfection', but quite frankly I don't even give a shit anymore. I've been working hard on the body I want & soon enough I will have it. Until then, us chunkier ladies need to be happy in the skin we're in. As long as we're healthy & happy, who gives a damn what we look like!? ^_^

MAC Spice Lip Liner


Buy | Here
I've been dying to get my hands on Spice for a little while now, every time I ever went to buy it, it was just my luck that it was out of stock. But fear not! Duty Free at the airport never let me down! The lady that served me was so, so lovely as well! I wish I would have gotten her name so I could put in a good word about her. She also dished me a handful of compliments on my newly done HD Brows & LVL Lashes - what a babe!! Oh & her makeup looked gorgeous too! Anyhow, back to my liner.. This shade matches PERFECTLY with either Honey Love or Velvet Teddy by MAC. I use Honey Love personally as I already have that in my collection. This is definitely going to be my most used lip colour during my holiday! This shade is such the perfect nude. The brownier (new word perhaps?) shades are my fave nudes, as the pinker tones make me a little washed out. I wish I would have bought some more liners now, looking through MACs website just reminds me of how many beautiful shades they are. AND, they're only £10.40 at the airport compared to £12.50 in store or online. Either way, they're so worth it! :)

LVL Lashes | SGHair&Beauty


Before I actually start with the post, excuse how bog eyed I look, it's not the most flattering angle for a picture, especially when I've been holding out getting my eyebrows done until very last minute before going away - eek! *covers eyes*. But now that's out of the way... How AMAZING do my lashes look? No mascara, no curling, no nadaaaaa! Just LVL.

What is LVL?
LVL is a revolutionary new lash boosting technique which promises length, volume and lift (LVL) for six to eight weeks - without a perm or an eyelash extension in sight! Perms are good for curl and eyelash extensions are great but for those of you that want a more natural look, LVL is definitely the way to go!

I got my lovely LVL lashes done by a lady called Grace. She was literally the loveliest person ever & so, so beautiful! Grace specialises in LVL, Nouveau lashes, HD Brows & a number of ways to fit hair extensions. All the good stuff us ladies need!

If you're interested in booking any treatments or hair appointments with Grace, please feel free to follow her social media accounts & check out her website.
