BIG BEAUTY BRANDS FOR LESS

Why does everything always run out at the same time? Shampoo, shower gel, body lotion, cleanser, the lot! Replacing them all in one go makes such a massive dent that sometimes I end up picking lesser quality stuff just because it’s cheap. I’ll want to try a fancy professional conditioner but can’t commit to spending that much on something I’m not sure if I’ll like. I’d like to treat myself to fragranced body lotion to match my perfume, but the price tag puts me off. That’s why I like shopping in TK Maxx to pick up big beauty brands for less. I always have a rummage in the beauty department when I’m in buying travel or workout bits and the range has at least doubled during their ‘big brand beauty fortnight’ that’s on in store at the moment.

IBIZA BY AIR

Wow, there’s something magical about watching this footage of Ibiza by air by videographer Michael Vanarey. He manages to show us a totally different perspective to the white isle.

Have a look at this montage of aerial footage Michael filmed on our press trip with Essential Ibiza in May 2016 and some of the stunning locations they brought us too.

I spy Surf Lounge, Hostal la Torre, Babylon Beach Bar, Tropicana Beach Club, Atzaro Hotel and a vineyard near Pikes Hotel.

We used the Kaiser Baas Delta Drone with GoPro gimbal from Harvey Norman in Ireland to capture these images, enjoy!

SUNDAY FUN DAY – IBIZA DAY 7

For Sunday fun day, we decided to potter on down to Sluiz which is a really cool interiors and clothing shop on the outskirts of Santa Gertrudis. The real draw for me though, was their outdoor space with cute little food stalls and bar out the back on the Sunday we went.

SUMMER WARDROBE

I get massive wardrobe envy everywhere I travel, but especially in Ibiza when the style rating is off the charts. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m just not the kind of person who will ever be “fashionable”, so I’m focusing more on style and staples to make dressing and more importantly for me, packing easier. I’ve created a bit of a capsule summer wardrobe that allows me to mix and match and look as pulled together as possible with minimal effort.
