Summer Diaries - Happy Birthday Lysi

The other day was my gorgeous friend Lysi's birthday. A group of us went out for a cute lunch at Belgo in Covent Garden.

Summer Diaries - Les Miserables

Les Miserables has recently just changed cast and because of the work experience I'm doing this week I got to go see the show today. Also, extremely excitingly, I got to have a backstage tour and watch the cast do their vocal warm up before taking my seat. I really really like Les Mis, it is such an iconic piece with an incredible score, I'm pretty sure some of the songs are in my top played on iTunes. The new cast is absolutely brilliant and very strong. If you get a chance to definitely go and see it!

I cannot wait to see Phantom of the Opera tomorrow.

I also made another quick purchase today. I've had my eye on the Real Techniques brushes for a long time but I decided to only purchase the one at the top of my list today - the stippling brush.

Bye for now!

Summer Diaries - Growing Up

I'm feeling very grown up this week as I've been doing work experience (post about that to come). As I was being tremendously mature walking to the tube after 'work' I popped into Superdrug. Of course I was drawn to the make up and beauty section. I tried a couple of things (such as Rimmel BB cream which I wish I had got - tomorrow maybe?) but decided to get a beautiful purple Rimmel nail polish. All these nail polishes were £2 off as well as a lot of the other Rimmel products, which was an added bonus. 

I also picked up some dry shampoo that I ran out of during my trip to Rome. They didn't have any large bottles so I had to get the mini ones. These were in a section where lots of mini products were three for £3 which I thought was fantastic. I'm a sucker for deals, I think everything is a bargain.

Bye for now!

Summer Diaries - ROME

Earlier on this week a couple of days after my last exam my mum and I ventured off to Rome. It was absolutely boiling, but was so so lovely. As expected I took many many pictures and of course I'm going to share some with you. I apologise (slightly half heartedly) that there is not much text in this post I'm just extremely tired and most of the pictures do speak for themselves.
