EOS Lip Balm Review

So I have had this products for about a month now maybe two, I can't totally remember.
Anyway this is going to a short one so I better get started!
 (I took this picture when I received my product a couple of months ago)
This is what the product looks like in it's original packaging, basically i love this product and I am totally gutted that its not a mainstream product in the UK. I bought this product on Amazon I am not 100% on the price but I believe that including P&P it cost me just under £5. Any american reading this will be totally shocked as this product is super cheap in the US. I bought this lip balm in strawberry sorbet and I totally love it. It smells amazing, feels amazing and is amazing. To be honest I think that the packaging is something that pulled me in. Its quite unique we don't really have anything like this in the UK that I can think of. Lip balms normally come in the stereotypical tubes or tins and they are BORING! 
Maybe its because I'm a sucker so all things beautiful but i would defiantly recommend this product to a friend. It has a good stay power obviously you do have to reapply but overall it leaves my lips feeling moisturised and fresh. I love using this before bed because It allows me to wake up with super soft lips.

My Weekend Away

As I mentioned in my last post, I went away this weekend. It was my sisters 21st birthday, as she lives in London we had a little family weekend in London. I thought I would put a post together with some of the pictures from my weekend.

 Friday evening in Kingston before we went for a meal

 We went to Byron for our meal
 My favourite drink at the moment.
Me and Charley (birthday girl)
 One half of the table
Saturday (Clapham Common/walking around central)
 Saturday morning on the way to the picnic
 Picnic on Clapham Common

 Me trying to play rounders but its not going to well

 After the picnic we got the tube to Borough Market
 This bread looks divine right!

Then we started to walk along the Thames towards St Pauls 

Sunday (Camden)

Chorizo sandwiches are beautiful!

This has to be the best way to get two of your five a day!

 I love vintage suitcases

These are the best cupcakes I've ever tried always buy them when I'm in London
Red velvet                  Carrot cake
Red velvet       Vanilla sponge with vanilla icing

These are a few more pictures that I took on my phone and also put on instagram

I know there were a lot of photos but I just thought I would share them all with you!
Hope you enjoyed this post
