My week so far…

Hi everyone!  I hope this post finds you all well today.

It’s Thursday and I am having a lovely week, this far.  I have been on the road this week, travelling to Brechin, Aberdeen and Buckie, with my husband whilst he was away on business.  

We stayed overnight at the lovely boutique style, Chester Hotel, Aberdeen, with our 22 month old Daughter, Livia, for company.

Livia and I had to make our own fun whilst Brian was in his meetings on the trip and we were fortunate enough to enjoy some glorious winter sunshine.  We had a walk around the Brechin Castle Centre and lunched in the cafe there.  Livia chose the sweetest little toadstool table to sit at…

We arrived at the Chester Hotel to find the grounds beautifully lit and Livia’s wee face was just a picture

We enjoyed a fabulous meal in the hotel restaurant to the point of ‘stick a fork in me, I’m done’ BUT, Brian and I still managed to share a gorgeous dessert.

Miss Livia slept well in the hotel supplied travel cot, but she still managed to sneak into the super comfy, Superking bed with Brian and I at 6am.  She was in her element, propped up with silky soft pillows watching Paw Patrol on the flatscreen TV – Lady Liv indeed!

While Brian headed downstairs in the hotel, to another meeting, I got Miss Livia and I ready for heading to Buckie on his return.  Whilst doing my makeup, I made the very best of the natural light coming into the room, setting up my makeshift dressing table by the window.

I had packed lightly for the trip, makeup wise, so here is a rundown of what’s on my face:

Heliocare 360 Oil Free
Iman Cream to Powder Foundation – 02 
Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand – Shade 3
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow
Cover FX Illuminating Setting Powder
Too Faced Endless Summer Bronzer
Benefit Sugarbomb Blusher
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – Brunette
Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made Eyeshadow Palette
Charlotte Tilbury Bronzed Garnet Eyeshadow Pencil
Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara
Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner
MAC Stone Lipstick

So the face was on and it was time to head to Buckie.  We had such a terrific stay at the Chester Hotel and are very much looking forward to our next one.
