Love Beauty the Primark Beauty Bar



Primark Manchester is one of the first UK stores to launch their new beauty bar, 'Love Beauty' and I have to say, I'm impressed. When it comes to my eyebrows it always seems to be a bit hit and miss to me,  but I decided to get my eyebrows neatened up at this shiny new salon!


Dressed in Clinique style uniform, it is obvious that Primark aren't taking their branding lightly and the look and feel of the pop up salons doesn't reflect the price. (Check out the price list above!) I had my eyebrows shaped rather intensely, first threaded, then plucked and then followed by some trimming, I didn't think so much could be done with such little hair.

And voila, the result. 



I went to Primark, Market Street, Manchester

I suggest you get pampered primark soon!

Lês Têtes Brûlées , Paris


When I arrived in Paris to celebrate my 21st and visit my friend, I was adamant I wanted to eat somewhere quintessentially French on the first night, and Lês Têtes Brûlées, not too far from Paris Nord train station was just the spot! 


                                            

Arriving at the restaurant (of course in the middle of happy hour) we got all of our cocktails in at just 5 Euros each, a good bargain for saying we we're slap bang in the middle of Paris! The event was filled with laughter as people retiring from work went straight out to enjoy happy hour and smoke on the cobbles. Why can't I have such glamorous nights after a long day at work?



                    



The menu was minimal but I wanted everything. But we settled for the Beef Steak with fries and salad. Possibly the best steak I've ever had. The waiter was oh so French and made our experience want to come back for more.

If you want to visit whilst your in Paris, I highly recommend it....

The address is, 21 Rue de Turbigo, Paris  and it is open from 7am - 2am everyday. I'm thinking breakfast, lunch and dinner! 

    
                     






                                 





A Taste Of Andalusia, Spain

                             


This summer I had a glimpse of what cuisine the Costa Del Sol has to offer... Paella and praline were on the menu during this indulgent weekend.


                               

First up, A buffalo mozzarella salad with cherries, pesto and a basil ice cream. Yep basil ice cream! It was a strange taste at first, a savoury ice cream with cheese.... But it was amazing and had the after taste of pizza... Not the most sophisticated description but I'm sure you're craving pizza now.

The mozzarella was fresh and full of flavour and balanced out well by the basil ice cream that I completely finished. Definitely an original to this amazing restaurant, La Terraza Laurel at La Cala Resort. 

                             

After a very filling traditional Paella, we indulged in a sweet and fluffy Praline. Such a great way to balance out all of the fishy flavours of the paella, the praline tasted like the best quality chocolate you could think of, topped off with a strawberry coulis and washed down with a cold white wine. 

I would definitely recommend light dishes when abroad, but finished off with a satisfying and calorific dessert, because you are on holiday to relax and enjoy!
