Firstly I'd like to apologise for my absence over the past few weeks. I started college on October 12th and it was my 22nd birthday on October 15th, so with everything new starting my blog got put on the back burner a little bit. However Im back and ready for action, I'm just going to have to learn to dedicate my time a little bit better! ❤
Today in college I did this super simple Sugar Skull inspired makeup. Best of all it required only three products! I used a light shade of foundation, black pencil liner and a matte black eyeshadow, thats literally it! I'm pretty sure virtually everyone has these products already at home so it doesn't require even buying anything! I used the Estee Lauder Pure Color Black pencil liner and the Ingot matte black shadow (can't remember the number!) purely because their pigmentation is amazing. Brush wise I used a fluffy blending brush, a large flat shader and a dense blessing brush too. It took me about half an hour. Now had I have had more time and not had to go out to lunch afterwards I would have added liner to the waterline and upper lash line and added some lashes.
It really just goes to show that you don't need loads of expensive special effects makeup and tools to do a nice Halloween look! What are you guys doing for Halloween this year? I will probably sit on my couch, watch a movie and eat my weight in chocolate. ❤

I am a massive foodie, so I wanted to start some sort of series where I post pictures of food I have eaten, recipes, what I eat in a day type posts etc. I was playing around with titles and I liked the Foodie Friday concept because it didn't limit me to just one type of blog post. I'm still unsure as to whether this will be a weekly or monthly fixture but we will see how it goes.
Todays post is a what I ate post. These are all meals I ate while in Portugal and aside from breakfast they were all eaten in restaurants. Just as a little FYI I very rarely/ never eat meat anymore, however I do eat seafood! Please do leave me links to your favourite food related posts or if you have any ideas for this food series please do share!
Toasted Belgian waffles with peach and pineapple on top. Green juice containing ginger, carrot, cucumber, apple, spinach and more things I can't remember!
I had these little potato chip type things (normal & sweet potato) with a sweet chilli mayo dip and a glass of coke with ice. I then had a prawn, mango, tomato and rocket salad with a sweet chilli dressing!
For dinner I had battered fish and chips with some sweet chilli mayo. As you've probably realised I LOVE sweet chilli! Also the newspaper in the bottom of the basket was so cute, A+ for presentation!
Now I realise this isn't exactly the worlds healthiest day of eating but then again I'm not the worlds healthiest eater either! I love seafood even more when I'm abroad and by the sea. Its always so delicious. Hopefully this will become a monthly blog fixture where I will share with you my healthy and not so healthy food obsessions. Have a lovely weekend everyone! ❤
