Hope you are all doing really well? It seems like I haven't spoken to you all in ages, but I'm looking forward to writing up some beauty related posts soon. I have just come home from a totally fabulous trip to Geneva and Megeve, which is just over the border in France. We have been planning this special trip for ages, as a surprise for my mums 60th birthday. Her and my dad flew out a few days before us and I can't even tell you how happy she was to see us all there. I thought I would do a little lifestyle/picture post today before I resume back to plenty of beauty related reviews. I also wanted to say a huge congratulations to all the fabulous bloggers/vloggers that have been shortlisted for the COSMO blog awards, especially one of my good friends Sophia, who as been nominated for two awards! With my recent bad health and starting a busy new job I have had to put my blog on the back burner for a few months, but I hope to run in the Cosmo blog awards next year! I would love to hear from you all in the comments section down below and don't forget to leave your links for me to check out!
As you can see we stopped off at the very luxurious Megeve (France) for a few nights and it was absolutely stunning. Even though the weather wasn't amazing it still looked beautiful and I completely fell in love with how magical it was even in July! I was a little tired in the picture above, as I'm sure a lot of you know how travelling can really take the life out of you. We visited a few places in Megeve and the lovely Chalet d’Antoine and believe it or not I actually met a fellow blogger, who had came across my Instagram before which was amazing (Small world) We took Honey my niece to a quaint park in Megeve where she had loads of fun. I even tried my hand at the "monkey bars"... I didn't get very far! In terms of what I wore over there I took my Chanel Jumbo handbag and Chanel ballet falts, which were more comfortable than I expected. I also took my Barbour jacket, which was an absolute god send with the on/off weather in both Megeve and Geneva.
We have already made plans to visit Megeve again in January, but this time I will be polishing up my snowboarding skills. My mum had such an amazing birthday and it was great to see her so happy and genuinely shocked that we had all planned to surprise her. I'm sure most of you know I love my beauty and handbags and the fact that Megeve had a Hermes totally made me lust for a Birkin even more than I have been already. They are pretty hard to get hold of, but I'm hoping my Patience will pay off in the long run!
After a few beautiful days in Megeve, we headed to Geneva for two days to do some shopping and experience the city. Geneva is lovely, especially the Jet d'eau which is the huge fountain within Lake Geneva. Sadly Geneva wasn't all good as Daniel left his watch in a changing room after trying on a sports top. By the time we went back around 20 minutes later the watch had been taken and not handed in. I was absolutely gutted and cried because I brought his watch for his 18th birthday from America and he loved it. It didn't help it was our anniversary either. We are both still completely gutted, especially as it has no value to the person who has it now. However, we are planning another city getaway in November for Daniel's birthday, so we are going to look at getting him another watch which will have new memories. Despite being really sad about Daniel's watch I managed to purchase two beautiful items from Burberry and a new handbag (before we realised his watch had gone) which I will probably instagram soon. I also tried to purchase a Hermes Clic Clac bracelet, but the lady advised me against it as even the smallest size was way to big. She said that they are looking at their sizing, so I will probably have a look again in a few months time, as they are so beautiful.
And of course... I purchased make-up which I will review soon :) - I hope you have enjoyed this post lovelies and don't forget to check out my Origins giveaway down below. I would love to hear from you in the comments section down below lovelies, as every comment really does put a smile on my face.. and it really does beat receiving any other e-mail!
Lots of love
