NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Summer Get Away Essentials

SUMMER GET AWAY ESSENTIALS

I know, what your thinking... IS THAT A BLOG POST FROM SUZIE?!?!? No you haven't gone mad, and you're not seeing things. I feel like we're due a little life catch up soon to explain the silence, but for now I wanted to talk you through a few of my favourite things I took to Santorini with me.

When it came to packing, the contents of my suitcase was fairly simple - although that's partly because about 25% of the case was taken up with Guerlain makeup (wondering why? Keep your eyes peeled for something coming to my channel in June!) - only one bag was packed, and only a few pairs of sunglasses. I packed one book and very few makeup brushes and skincare products. 

The bag I packed was my new mint/green Valentino which, despite being very much on the small side, was the perfect bag for carrying my essentials around in on our little adventures around the winding white Santorini steps.  I've never splurged (I really hate the word splurged - must find an alternative) on a bag that's not a neutral colour before. I picked this up from LUISAVIAROMA.COM and was a little unsure as to exactly how much wear would come from this one (the temptation to always buy everything in black or nude is unreal!), but I've loved wearing it and it really does go with almost every outfit I own. The design of the bag itself is possibly my all time favourite, not too detailed, but not too minimal, not to androgynous and not to feminine. Don't be surprised if I end up with more than one of these...

Despite packing a couple of pairs of Sunglasses (including my Dior So Real's) I couldn't resist picking up a new pair from Dior at the airport. The Cat Eye Mirrored Sunglasses have potentially beaten the So Real's to my number one spot - the cat eye shape is so much more flattering but the mirrored lenses and frame give it a similar vibe to the So Real's without the fear my eyebrows are being covered - a legit pet peeve of mine - I could get down to the science of why but we'd be here for two more paragraphs...

The few beauty bits that I've been loving all fall under the theme of no faff and easy to apply - the Clinique Chubby Foundation stick and Morphe M439 make applying your base a breeze, whilst the Guerlain Super Lips adds a little shine and more full look to my lips, with the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Dolce being my go-to for the evenings when I don't want to worry about my lipstick after dinner (that shizz really does stay all day).

And finally, Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert,  an easy read that really helped me to see the light at the end of the creative slump tunnel.

  28. Love these photos! I purchased a gorgeous mint bag a few years ago, and ended up returning it because I didn't think I would get enough use out of it. Totally regret that decision now. Glad you are having such a great time on vacation!

  36. This Morphe brush looks incredible, definitely going on my 'to try' list :)
    And I'm very curious to see what's coming with Guerlian, one of my favorite brands of all times (their Terracotta is actually the very first make up item my mom bought my, as a gift when I was about 15, because I kept on stealing hers) !!

    Lots of love, Anais

  49. Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
    My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My name is Mary Wilkie from London, UK.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His website: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .
