A Very Special Weekend Away, with a Sneaky trip to Sephora

Last weekend was a very special weekend for someone I very proud to call my friend, and fellow WordPresser….A Miss became part of a Mr&Mrs in a very beautiful sunny Portugal surrounded by friends and family.

So, with a wedding to go to and work to get back to on Monday, myself and Miss Pusheen (my super amazing friend who booked EVERYTHIING for this trip….Thank you Pusheen) had a whistle stop trip through Lisbon on Saturday afternoon.

Lisbon is a beautiful city, especially in the sunshine. The food is amazing, the people are lovely, so I would 100% recommend going for a full weekend where you can really look around and see everything it has to offer. This is lotz speak for “i want to go back and eat everything again!!”

As you can see, I am not going into too much detail….so….moving swiftly on, I will get into the Sneaky Sephora Goodness………

Skin Care:


I have mentioned before that I am a big fan of the Sephora sheet masks. As I used one of my Pomegranate ones on the way back from the US, it was time to pick up a replacement. Whilst I was picking this one up, I saw that Sephora now do matching eye masks. The pomegranate masks offer Anti-fatigue and Energising properties, so any eye product that offers to get rid of my black bags is a going to come home with me. I will be testing these little guys out, so I will keep you all posted.



The Sephora in Lisbon is not the biggest I have been to, but it still has the ominous “Isle Of Doom” as they all do. In the hazardous walk to pay for my goodies, I snapped up this adorable mini-eye liner in a beautiful metallic purple (21 Plum). With its small size and sharp nib, you can get in super close to the lash line, perfect to complement the Autumn/Winter purple smokey eye.


Ok, OK, I know…I need another lip colour like I need a hole in the head….but…well…accidents happen, especially in Sephora! Their own brand products are fabulous, so I couldn’t not try out these new babies.

First up, these 2 matte lipsticks in No11 and No12. I know there does not look like much of a difference in the bullet colours, but on the skin, you get such a change. No11 being more pink and No12 giving a light plummy tone.


Another matte product came in the form of Sephora Cream Lip Stain in No8. I love their true red, No1, so this new Summery pink will brighten up my weekends, and follow me into Autumn/Winter to keep me on the pastel pink trend that is coming our way again.




Most of my nearest and dearest will contest to me being a nail product addict. With the exception of today, my nails are always painted, so, me picking up a nail vanish was not surprise. In my ongoing quest for the perfect Nude and White nail varnishes, I picked up the Formula X Nail Varnish in Impeccable. This is more of a dark nude, so will be perfect for the tinny bit of tan I picked up whilst away.

Another must from the ‘Isle Of Doom” comes in the form of my favourite nail files and buffers. These little guys last a really long time, and give a perfect buff, shape and file. A bit of an over share, but they are great for taking back the length on your nails if you break one.

I hope you enjoyed my whistle stop trip around Sephora. I am hoping to be heading back to Portugal soon, so a more in-depth foodie tour will be following.

Have a great weekend everyone xXx
