Week in photographs # 33/34

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Well it has been such a busy couple of weeks! I came back from my holiday yesterday and five days ago I turned the big 21 and the week before my sister turned 18. Also I have had early birthday presents because we went on holiday during mine and my sisters birthdays and travelling to and from Harwich port was really exhausting (lots of train changes!) but we are home now and blogging will get back to normal soon!

Firstly, our holiday, we went on another Royal Caribbean cruise (we love them!) to Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Finland and Estonia! It was a 12 night cruise from Harwich England and I turned 21 in Estonia. It did rain a couple of days of the holiday but overall it is fantastic, especially Russia and Sweden. I hope everyone liked some of the travel posts I was uploading while on holiday, I couldn't reply to your comments because internet costs on Royal Caribbean are really quite expensive! My holiday music playlist: Diana Young - Vampire Weekend, My Sharona - The Knack, Gypsy Boots - Hanoi Rocks, The Phoenix - Fall Out Boy, Car Chase City - Tenacious D, The Bucket - Kings of Leon and TGIF - Katy Perry.

Also, my birthday, I had a great birthday and I am really lucky to spend my birthday on a Royal Caribbean cruise with my family. We came back yesterday and we were greeted by lots and lots of pink birthday decorations on our front door and in the house because of my lovely auntie and cousin - I also received some lovely presents, including some candles, gift cards, teddies, a Diptyque perfume, a Laura Mercier gift set, some Nails Inc polishes, L'Occitane haircare and more!

What to expect on Ofbeautyandnothingness over the next two/three weeks: I have a lot of travel and summer posts that are done and ready to go that I will be posting over the next week or two. I have some back to school makeup posts, a post about my experiences with facial eczema, what I would repurchase, tags, wish lists & haul posts and also an over 800+ follower giveaway!

I hope everyone had a fantastic two weeks - blogging will continue as normal now x
