Travel Diary: Sa Coma, Majorca

After spending 10 years with this boy, and never taking a trip abroad together (or in that whole time frame), we decided that 2017 was the year. One day on the internet we took the plunge and booked a holiday - we read reviews but didn't put a lot of thought into where we were going, or what we were going to do. 

This post isn't sponsored, however, if Thomsons were looking for a rave review they are certainly going to receive one. The flights were incredible, we were literally on cloud 9 flying away to a destination that could have been heaven. It was so easy to understand where we needed to go, and the reps for Thomson were happy and ready to guide you on your way - which was especially helpful at midnight in another country neither myself or Jack had travelled to before.

Our hotel had thought of everything, including having a bite to eat ready for us when we arrived at half past 1 in the morning. The room, the balcony, the pool and even the reception area were a dream come true. The white sand beach, with the clear blue water was the icing on top of the cake, enticing you into the sea with every push and pull of the waves.

I'm not sure that words could do the breath taking views any justice, and it is something that needs to be experienced to fully appreciate. Taking excursions across the island of Majorca, and travelling by bicycle across the coast to discover new sights and attractions that you couldn't imagine exist on this earth is something that will not be forgotten from this holiday. If you get the chance, you should go and discover. Travel. Learn new cultures and take it in. Sometimes it allows you to learn more about yourself, but mostly it allows you to get away from the everyday mundanity of life, which is especially important in this social media driven world that we now live in.

The only problem is, now our taste for travel has become starvation and I can't wait to book our next holiday - plus I need to be able to scratch off destinations from our new scratch off map!

Murine Bright and Moist Eye Drops*

This is a different post to what you normally see on my beauty blog, but it is one that I wanted to share with you all. As avid makeup junkies, I think we focus on a lot of products that we apply to our faces and bodies, and don't talk about the products that can be used to make a difference to our look without it being makeup. This brings me to the eye drops that I have been using for the past month - Murine Bright and Moist Eyes Eye Drops.

Think of these as similar to skincare, just like you would apply moisturiser to your face, you can apply moisturiser to your eyes. Initially, this might sound like a crazy idea - but think about all of the negative impacts that you have on your eyes; eye makeup, staring at computers all day and allergies. These eye drops give a soothing and moisturising effect, whilst brightening and whitening the eyes, think of how much of a pick me up this will give you without actually applying any makeup products to your face. I have used many eye drops in my life, from moisturising eye drops to eye drops for hay fever, but these eye drops have the added bonus of the whitening effect.

All you have to do with these drops is apply 2 drops in each eye, I like to do this in the morning as it's the perfect time to add the brightening effect to your eyes. You can then apply the drops a further 3 times throughout the day if you want to. I do like to add the drops into my eyes at the end of the day as well, because if you're like me and have been staring at the computer screen all day, and have had makeup on your eyes all day (which can actually irritate your eyes!) it's nice to add that soothing moisture back into the eyes before bed.

I've also uploaded a tutorial on how to make your eyes look bigger, incorporating these eye drops on my YouTube channel, which you will find here.

Do you incorporate eye drops into your beauty routine? If not, I'd recommend trying it as the drops aren't going to break the bank, and you never know you might love it!
