I’m not a fan of the gym. I’ve tried it in the past, and I might try it again in the future, but it just doesn’t really work for me. I feel too self-conscious and out of my depth with all the equipment and other people around. Because of this, my living room has become my at-home workout space! No equipment needed, just some floor space, some DVDs or even YouTube.
When I realised we would be visiting Barcelona during our trip to Spain, I became very excited for one reason in particular: the chance to visit Sephora. I know, I know, that sounds rather pathetic, but I have to admit that I'm not all that clued up on culture and sightseeing and all that jazz. Don't get me wrong, I was super excited to see Barcelona and explore, but the girl who has been watching American beauty gurus for 6 plus years was definitely more excited at the prospect of actually getting to visit a Sephora! I've never been to the states or any major European cities before, and I've never been able to justify the risk of customs and postage etc. with Sephora online, so this was my first opportunity to shop there.
Now we've got the back story out of the way, lets move on to my choice of products: the Kat Von D Shade & Light contour and eyeshadow palettes. If you're an avid beauty trends follower, then you'll know that Kat Von D is actually launching in Debenhems in the autumn...well, this news was announced literally a couple of days after my trip to Barcelona, so I went ahead with my purchases blissfully unaware of the fact that they weren't going to be all that *exclusive* for much longer. Nonetheless, I'm so happy I bought them both, as I know I probably wouldn't have been able to keep hold of the pennies I'd set aside to pay for them until their release here in the UK anyway.
Kat Von D is a very hyped-up brand: so many bloggers and YouTubers rave about the products and the person herself. Out of all her products these are the two I was most desperate to get my hands on (although the cult classic Everlasting Liquid Lipstick shade Lolita was not far behind!), so I had high hopes for them. I'll try and keep my review of each palette fairly short, sweet and to the point!
"if you’re not eating clean its like 'who are you?'"
If you’re an avid user of social media you’ve more than likely seen the words ‘clean’, ‘healthy’ and ‘plant-based’ attached to images of (predominantly green and/or sweet potato-fied) food, which probably sit among a gloriously bright and colourful feed of smoothie bowls, positivity quotes and yoga poses. I for one have felt both inspired and demoralised by this trend, which is why I was so eagerly anticipating the release of "Clean Eating’s Dirty Secrets" on BBC Three with Grace Victory.
