The Best Day Ever At Chester Zoo !!

So after watching series after series of the TV Show all about Chester Zoo, me and my family (very spontaneously... !!) decided to book a hotel and drive 5 hours to go and visit last Monday and it was the best day out ever ever ever!!
We got there the minute it opened and left right at closing time and to be honest we could of spent even longer walking round, there was just SO much to see!! My favourite bits though were definatly the elephants, butterfly house and the rhino's. Rhino's are my fave animal so seeing baby rhinos was just amazing.. !! I really recommend going if you ever get the chance, we've already said we're going back next year and making it an annual trip.

Happy Happy Happy

"If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."

-Roald Dahl
So today I completed the 5k Pretty Muddy Race for Life for the second year in a row and if I'm completely honest the whole time I kept thinking how bloody happy I am. Yes, I had no makeup on and was absolutely covered in mud, water and (a bit tmi) sweat, but I felt SO happy I didn't stop smiling all morning and I haven't stopped since!! I love the girls from work I ran it with and having family there to watch was even better. It's put everything into perspective for me and I feel SO content with everything at the moment. It's made me realise that it really is the small things that make me happiest. I've got some really good and exciting things coming up, I'm going away for a couple days tomorrow to Chester (expect a million photos of the baby rhinos, my fave animal.. !!), I've been invited to the exclusive opening of my new local Lush store (literally the dreeeaaammm) and I've got a holiday to Rhodes to look forward to at the end of the year which means lots of reading, sun and relaxing so I can't wait!!
This year is definitely getting better and better because on top of things I have planned, I'm nearly ready to book my driving test (!!), I've nearly finished my Level 3 in Childcare and I've fallen back in love with everything blogging and photography at the moment. So as cheesy as it might sound I really am just happy at the moment and I really don't want it to end!! (I don't think it will soon though, I mean... baby rhinos !!)

BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop

I can't even tell you how many times this highlighter has made it in my cult beauty basket and how many times I've backed out last minute, but finally I caved and made the purchase and I'm soooo happy I did!! I've never tried anything from Becca before but now I've tried this I'll deffo be buying more.
The amount of people that have raved and hyped about this product is ridiculous and I'm now jumping on the bandwagon, because honestly it is gorgeous... !! Whether you've got a full face of makeup on or just the natural minimum this will always add the most amazing shimmer and highlight to your look whether you build it up or not. It's a lovely rose gold champagne shade that will suit pretty much everyone. I use my Zoeva 105 Highlighter brush with this and you really only need the smallest bit as the pigment is just crazy good. Honestly if you haven't got this yet then you need to!! It's SO worth the hype that surrounded it when it was first released and I'm kicking myself I didn't buy it sooner. It's definitely my new favourite highlighter and I found it just in time for summer and my holiday!
