OOTD & FOTD - Travelling

Hello!

My entire family live all over the place, which leaves us spending a massive chunk of our summer holidays travelling up and down the country going to visit them! I'm a big fan of travelling and it's one of my main values in life (I love trying new things and meeting new interesting people, and travelling is one of the best ways to do this!) so I see it as an advantage!

At the moment I'm staying with my grandparents. They live in a tiny village in Scotland and there's not much to do, so you can expect a lot more posts over this week! To get here we took a gruelling 7 hour train, so I wanted to wear something comfortable.

Sorry for the extremely unflattering photo...

I love tucking a T-shirt into leggings. It just looks so casual and it's super easy. My leggings are probably from Primark and my T-shirt (which I really really love - my parents got me this for a stocking filler last christmas!) is from River Island. 


I got my necklace from Primark, and I probably wear it more than any other necklace; it's so versatile and it goes with everything! I got most of my bracelets from little shops in Cornwall when I went in April, and I've got my Pandora on too. I love stacking up a few colourful bracelets to add a very subtle colour pop. Also bracelets make me feel cool.


For my face I decided to keep my make-up more natural because I'd probably be sleeping on the train (I had to get up at 5am!) so I didn't want masses of eyeliner sliding down my face and arriving at my nan's looking like Alice Cooper. I noticed a trend for rosy hues in makeup recently. It gives my face the healthy glow everyone wants!

-Stila Tinted Moisturiser (this has SPF 30! A must for summer for me AND I got it from Poundland!)
-Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush in Rose Ambre
-Rimmel Match Perfection Bronzer
-BeneFit High Beam on my cheekbones, on my cupids bow and all over my eyelids for a non-budging eyeshadow - getting up at 5am does nothing good for me and I need something to wake up my tired eyes, and this does the trick!
-Natural Collection Lipgloss in Raspberry Ripple 

Thankyou for reading! Have you been travelling lately!? xoxo

    1. I love it, but there are so many dupes which are so much cheaper but the exact same quality! I got mine as a freebie in a glamour magazine or else I probably wouldn't have bought it :P Thankyou very much! xx
