November Update!

My husband and I visited Madrid over halloween and into the beginning of November.
We stayed on Gran Via the main shopping street and stayed at The VincciMint hotel which we highly recommend. We enjoyed exploring the city visiting various art galleries and shops, bars and restaurants as you do...I am not going to lie it was a pretty exhausting trip!

Plaza Mayor

Primark on Five Floors!

Retiro Park

Royal Palace of Madrid

My favourite painting of the trip by Artist Robert Delauney, Thyssen Museum.

I couldn't resist this cute little makeup shop!

The highlight of our trip was dinner at the fabulous La Candelo Resto If you are ever in Madrid you should definitely make a special evening here.  You will be completely "wowed" with the creative food combinations, it was a culinary experience!

Some of the stunning clients I have had the pleasure of doing hair and/or makeup for during November.

October Update!

Wow! I cannot believe it is October already, what a busy year!  October has been a little quieter for me so I have had time to winter detox my makeup kit and replenish with some lovely new makeup and tools.

As recommended Makeup artist at The Luton Hoo Hotel I was as the October Wedding Showcase evening meeting with some lovely 2017/2018 Brides. Dates for next year are filling up fast at present particularly May and September so do book early to avoid disappointment.

A couple of recent brides I had the pleasure of doing wedding makeup for.

I also had an overnight stay at The Crazy Bear in Beaconsfield which was a fun experience!

Room with a view!

Cocktail perfection.

The toilets were impressive!

Have a spooky halloween and a fun-filled fireworks night, see you again for my November update!
