Hen do celebrations!

By | July 3, 2011

Hi dolls. Let me just warn you before I go any further… This post is PICTURE HEAVY!! Okay, so LOL, how are you all? I’ve been slacking & also super busy recently – bad times for my blogging time! Also, my wisdom tooth has been a right A-hole but it’s slowly getting better. I can’t wait to be able to eat proper food! So, some of you may or may not know that I went away for a hen do last weekend. It was such a good weekend with lots of laughs, food, drink, dancing & the odd sight seeing in Edinburgh! It was my first time going & wasn’t too sure what to expect. However, it was so nice & we all had a fab time! I thought I’d share some pictures with you all…

We first went up to Manchester to meet up with the Hen’s sister… It was my first time going there too & I absolutely LOVED it – I actually prefer it to London!! It’s so nice & clean, with lots of shopping & with a great atmosphere.

We were only there for one night so we were taken out to dinner at CHAOPHRAYA – if you love Thai food, this is the place to be!

You can sit at special tables like this – AMAZING!

We then headed for some drinks at the Hilton. The bar was called ‘CLOUD 23‘ (it was on the 23rd floor with a breathtaking view!).

If you like pomegranate - order the VERTIGO drink!

We were then off to Edinburgh the next day with a fun-filled weekend with the girls! We had such a great laugh :)

The first night was a Grecian night & this is what I wore…

Dress: ASOS
Headband: Primark
Necklace & Bracelet: Miss Selfridge
Watch: Guess

A quick run down on the FOTN the first night: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation & MAC Face & Body, Collection 2000 concealer, MAC MSF powder, Naked palette on my eyes, Blacktrak fluidline, UD Cannonball mascara, Cha Cha tint on my cheeks, Hoola contour, Cha Cha tint & Vegas Volt on my lips!

We went to see the Edinburgh Castle which was absolutely MASSIVE, smack-bang in the middle of the city centre!! It kinda reminded me of the pyramids in Giza being in the middle of the city!

FOTD: MAC Face & Body, MAC MSF, Garnier Tinted Eye Roll On as a concealer, Blacktrack fluidline, UD Cannonball mascara, Hoola & Posie Tint of my cheeks, Turkish Delight on my lips.


The second night we all went for the colour blocking trend – this looks amazing in pictures! Here’s what I wore…

Top: New Look
Shorts: Boohoo.com
Belt: Accessories
Bag: Peacocks
Earrings: H&M
Necklace: Links of London
Bracelet: Oasis

A quick run down on the FOTN the second night: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation & MAC Face & Body, MAC MSF, Garnier Tinted Eye Roll On as a concealer, Vex eye shadow & MAC Blacktrack fluidline as top liner, Electric 24/7 UD eyeliner on lower lash line, UD Cannonball mascara, Cha Cha tint on my cheeks, Hoola contour, Hocus Focus by Soap & Glory as high light, Cha Cha tint, Vegas Volt & Costa Chic on my lips!

This is how I did my hair. I left it curly from the night before & tied it onto a sleek pony tail and wrapped my own hair round the band with my new EAR CUFF I got from ASOS as a hair accessory!

We started the night off at a place called ‘The Dome’ – it was so posh & elegant! They even had a red carpet… We felt like Hollywood stars! Although my wisdom tooth’s antics knocked it up a notch on Sunday afternoon, the whole weekend was great! Now, it’s time for the wedding… I cannot wait!!

What have you all been up to over the past few weeks? I went shopping yesterday & am thinking to do a haul post… I seriously spent too much money though :oops:

    Hey Kaushal,
    was just wondering, do you not use concealer?
    you look stunning in these pictures :) x

    • Kaushal

      Hi Mel – I completely forgot to add that. I use the Garnier eye roll on with caffeine in it – been using it for over a year on a daily basis! It’s really good x
