SPAIN TRAVEL VLOGS

Buenos dias!

How is everyone doing? I have been having so much fun with my fiancé here in Spain! From going to see castles, to partying it up at the fiestas in the villages around us, going on road trips to hand out our wedding invitations and also seeing some amazing views, with human nature at it’s finest 🙂

I have been vlogging on the weekends so that you can join in the fun and see the amazing sceneries through our eyes. I know many of you have been dying to hear Jairo speak English so I have been trying my hardest and at times I catch little snippets of him trying and it is the cutest thing! His cute Spanish accent is to die for 😀

Currently on my channel I have two Spain Travel Vlogs. I have worked really hard on both of them and it would mean the world to me if you could head on over to my channel and leave a comment on my latest videos letting me know if you enjoyed my video; constructive criticism is more welcome also!

Here are my new vlogs:

I FAILED!

I know, I failed… 😦doh

I really thought I was going to be able to post on my blog every day in April but I just couldn’t because of jet lag and being sick with the flu. I physically and mentally could not do it 😦 Gosh I should have known it wasn’t a good idea to start this challenge when I know how difficult jet lag can be. I’m sorry guys! I am going to really attempt to upload more regularly because I feel really bad! I don’t just feel bad because I failed but I also feel upset because I failed myself as I absolutely love posting blog posts for you all. It is really fun for me and to be honest it is almost therapeutic.

I am in the middle of uploading a haul video, literally it’s at 50%! It has taken me days to upload because it hasn’t been working! I’m not sure what is going on! If you follow me on Instagram I have spoken about the situation and had a rant about how I have been having trouble posting videos since I have arrived in Spain. In saying this, it seems to be working now so I really hope it doesn’t bugger up on me and continues to go strong and complete the upload. I’m super excited to share with you guys this haul because I have some new beauty products that I am excited to try out 😀

Also, I will be posting a product review in the next couple of days on my blog so stay tuned for that. It is going to be on a newly discovered concealer that I LOVE! I cannot wait to post the review and share my thoughts with you all. Hopefully it convinces you to try it out too because it is such a good product. If you are interested in sticking around for that post, please follow my blog by clicking follow or also subscribing by email so that you are notified of when it goes up.

At the moment I am actually having an ITSJUDYSLIFE MARATHON! I very frequently get in these moods where I decide on a youtuber that I want to watch and then I’ll spend a few days literally binge watching their videos from the first videos that they have on their channel to the most recent one! Does anyone else do this? Or am I the only weirdo out? Let me know! I’m absolutely loving it! You all know that I love Judy. She is one of my favourite youtubers and the first youtuber that I started watching years ago! So I am really enjoying this marathon. I wish I had some popcorn or M&M’s with me…

Easter is this week so I hope you all have a fantastic Easter and eat many chocolate eggs! Yum!

happy easter

I hope you understand my situation and I am looking forward to posting again.

ONE DAY TO GO & PACKING FOR SPAIN

One day to go! My goodness, with the weather that we have been having lately I’m not sure whether we will be jumping on a plane to fly to Spain or hopping on a boat! It has been raining so much and there has been so much flooding. Unfortunately along with this kind of weather comes tragic accidents. I would like to take a second to send out my love and condolences to those who have lost loved ones in this dangerous weather. Also, to those who have been injured, I wish you a speedy recovery.

Since I have hardly any time left I have decided to finally start packing. Yes, I have become one of those people who put packing off until the very last minute. I never used to be like this but I feel like when you become more of a frequent traveller you start to realise that you don’t need to start packing one or two months in advance! I know, I know. From one extreme to another, right?

I am actually struggling to figure out what to take this time round. We will be in Spain for four to five months before we come back to Australia but at the same time I did leave some clothes and shoes behind. The problem is that since my memory is amazing (not) I do not remember what it was that I left over there. Maybe if I did know packing would be a lot easier so I would know what I should take and what I could get away with leaving here. Anyway, I guess I’ll just do the best that I can.

It is Spring over there and we will be there for the Summer so I’ll take some nice flowy summery dresses, playsuits (rompers), sandals, and tops. As for bottoms a couple of pairs of jeans and some shorts are perfect. Also, I’ll take a couple of jumpers/hoodies, a pair of boots and just some warmer pieces because although it is Spring, we have been told that it has been snowing and that it is pretty chilly! I hope it lasts some time so that we can experience some fun in the snow when we get there, but not too long after we get there because I am really craving the warm weather and laying down near the river in my swimmers reading a book! That’s not too much to ask is it?

Also, a couple of very important pieces that I MUST take with me are my wedding shoes!! I cannot forget those hahaha They will be featured in a video I have coming up this week 🙂

Tomorrow’s post will be focusing on my makeup essentials that I will be taking with me to Spain! So stay tuned, and follow so that you are updated as soon as I post it!

I had in mind of filming a packing video for you but I have run out of time and am unable to. I’M SORRY!

Just a bit of an update about how I’m feeling now that it is so closer to the day. I am feeling nervous! I left Spain unwell and on a bit of a negative note last time, so the feelings that I experienced then have been kind of engraved in my brain. However, I’m trying to keep an open mind and enjoy the time that I am there. I have made a couple of friends (finally) so I am actually very excited to see them, and my family of course 🙂 I’m definitely not looking forward to the plane! 26 hours is not fun in a plane. Ok, the first few hours are ok but then you start feeling a little like Sharon from Kath & Kim in the episode when she is stuck in the sauna and is screaming “LET ME OUT!” For those of you unsure what Kath & Kim is, it is an Australian TV comedy series. It’s stupid but funny because of how stupid it is! Haha

Make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel to keep updated with my uploads also! There are new videos up! I just uploaded my first STORYTIME VIDEO! It’s pretty funny! If you are interested in watching click here –>> VICTORIA BECKHAM HAIR CUT GONE WRONG!

Product Review & Comparison | Clinique Eye Creams

Here is a surprise post for this week! 😀

My eye area has always been a very oily part of my face, however since June my skin done a 360 on me and I was getting really dry around my eyes. I had never experienced it, there were flakey areas and my makeup was not sitting well on my skin; not a pleasant experience. Although I have always had really dark under eye circles, due to the oiliness I had never used an eye cream because I felt that it would just add to the grease and I could just cover up the darkness with makeup.

When I started to see this change in my skin I knew that I needed an eye cream of some sort but I wasn’t really sure which brand to go for or if I should go for a serum, gel, or cream. So many options!! When I was in town shopping with my sister we were in Myer and while we were in there I decided to check out the Clinique counter to see what they would recommend for my eyes. The lady was really lovely and showed me two products – All about Eyes and All About Eyes Rich. Allow me to explain the difference between the two:

Clinique All About Eyes

This eye cream feels lovely around the eyes. It is a very lightweight product and claims to diminish the puffiness and under-eye circles. I noticed right away a difference in my eyes. The puffiness is nowhere near as prominent as it was prior to using the cream. As for the under-eye circles, I have a very veiny eye area (one of my insecurities) so it is a little difficult to notice any drastic changes to my dark circles. In saying this, I have found that the darkness has been reduced slightly, not as much as I would have liked though but hopefully I will continue to see improvements as I continue to use this cream.

Also, this product is extremely hydrating and it instantly helped the dryness around my eyes. In addition to this, the flakiness completely disappeared about a week into using this amazing cream! As a result, my makeup now glides on super nicely on my eyes 🙂 I apply this cream in the morning and at night. I can honestly say that I am in love with this Clinique eye cream. Aaaaaand a little goes a long way, so it lasts a while!

Clinique All About Eyes Rich

I started using this eye cream as a mistake. I actually wanted to repurchase

the All About Eyes but when I asked the lady at the Clinique counter for the eye cream I had not realised that she gave me the Rich instead. I thought about returning it because I’m the kind of person, especially when it comes to skincare products, that if I find something that I really like I generally continue repurchasing the same product because I know that it does the job for me. In the end I decided to keep the Rich cream and try it out so that I could write this post comparing the two and seeing which one I liked best 🙂

Similar to the All About Eyes cream, the All About Eyes Rich claims to diminish the appearance of under-eye circles and puffs. This eye product also assists in minimising fine lines, “strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier” and “helps boost natural collagen production” (clinique.com.au). This product is thicker and is more of a moisturising cream than a gel like the All About Eyes. In my opinion I don’t feel like it is as hydrating as the All About Eyes. You don’t have to use much of this product. I apply it to my eyes both in the morning and at night and I do like the difference that I am seeing in my fine lines on the outer corners of my eyes.

Although Clinique suggests that both these products work well for all skin types, I would not recommend the All About Eyes cream for those who have an oily eye area because it is extremely hydrating and adds to the grease. As for the All About Eyes Rich I would agree with Clinique and say that it would work well for all skin types.

I believe that you could use these eye creams in conjunction with each other. Although they both target the reduction of puffs and dark under-eye circles the rich also helps with the fine lines and collagen production. If you were to do this I would apply the Rich at night and the All About Eyes in the morning 🙂

I really do like both these eye creams and I recommend them both 100%. However, my personal preference is the first one that I spoke about which is the All About Eyes cream. I love the fact that it is very lightweight, super hydrating and makes the skin around your eyes feel nice and fresh which assists in waking you up in the morning and soothes of a night time. I will definitely be repurchasing this one as soon as I finish the ‘Rich’.

I hope you found this post helpful if you were looking for an eye cream for yourself. Although I say that once I find something that works for me I repurchase that product, I do like to find new products! So if you have a favourite eye cream that you use, leave it in the comments so that I can give it a try 🙂

Of course I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas spending time with your loved ones ❤ I hope Santa is good to you 😉

Thank you for reading and until next time!

The Christmas Tag!

Not long to go now!! I am beyond excited 😀

Since I have been sitting here for the past few days with a swollen and sore face due to having my wisdom teeth taken out on Tuesday, I thought it would be fun to do a Christmas Tag! I found this tag on the internet, however I have seen some youtubers posting this tag on their channels as well.

Time to answer the Q’s 😉

1) What’s your favourite holiday movie?

A: I have two favourite holiday movies and they are ‘Elf’ (of course) and ‘While You Were Sleeping’ starring Sandra Bullock. I absolutely love these movies and I watch them every Christmas without fail!

2) What’s your favourite Christmas colour?

A: My favourite colours for Christmas are definitely white and silver! Although here in Australia Christmas is during the Summer, I love the thought of having a white Christmas (hopefully next year I can live my dream of having a white Christmas 😛 ). So white and silver it is!

3) Do you like to stay in your PJ’s or dress up for Christmas?

A: On Christmas day I generally spend the day at home with my parents and my sister. We open our presents in the morning and then watch Christmas movies all day while eating yummy food 😀 Therefore, I love to stay in my Pj’s all day!

4) If you could only buy one person a present this year who would it be?

A: REALLY?! This is a question?! Oh my goodness…. I don’t even know… I would not be able to go a Christmas without buying my parents and sister a present 😦 But if I could only buy one I would have to say my sister or else I would have to sleep with one eye open… 😛 haha

5) Do you open your presents Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

A: On Christmas Eve the family gets together at my grandad’s place for a big Christmas dinner and generally we open the presents that we receive from my aunties and uncles, grandparents etc. However, the presents that I receive from my parents, sister and Santa, I open Christmas morning as we gather around the tree.

6) Have you ever built a Ginger Bread House?

A: I have never built of eaten a Ginger Bread House! I want to though!

7) What do you like to do on your Christmas break?

A: On my Christmas break I love to spend time with my family since we don’t get to spend much time together due to our work schedules.

8) Any Christmas wishes?

A: Every Christmas I wish for the same things, for everyone to have a very safe and Merry Christmas spending time with your loved ones 🙂

9) Favourite Christmas smell:

A: Hmmmm favourite Christmas smell… Literally the only smell I can think of is food!! Haha Yep, let’s go with that 😛

10) Favourite Christmas meal or treat?

A: I absolutely love Panettone which is an Italian sweet Christmas bread that can contain dried fruit, chocolate and custard mmmmm so good!

 

Well I hope you enjoyed reading this tag! I had fun answering these questions, getting me into the festive spirit! 😀

I tag all of you to do this fun Christmas Tag! ❤
