SORRY..... I'm Rubbish

How rubbish am I?
My last post was forever ago and there hasn't really been much of an excuse to give.... so i'll start this post by saying I'm Sorry.

I guess I had a busy April but fear not.... I'm going to fill this post full of everything you have missed and what is coming up in the world of Blushblendbeauty.

On the 19th April I went away on holiday to Turkey and stayed in an apartment in Side,  and it was just an awesome break away. I went with my sister Nicola, her husband Josh and bump.... (baby on the way!!) 

Was so relaxing.... Minus the nightmare journey we had going out there...

After take off (which im not a fan of anyway) there was an almighty crash sounds and a very bright flash of light through the cabin.... I kid you not.... I shat my pants! (not literally) The plane had just been struck by lightning. The pilot confirmed this like 30 MINUTES AFTER IT HAPPENED... cheers. Reassured us everything was ok and that this does sometimes happen. After about another hour of flying the pilot tells us that we are turning around and heading back to Gatwick as it is standard procedure to get the plane checked over. 

Of course this was a huge kick in the crutch but hey... better to be safe than sorry. So off we trot to Gatwick... only to sit on the tarmac for 5 hours!! They changed crew, refuelled, changed pilots the whole lot.... it actually gets worse that they run out of food once back up in the the air and being that my sister and the lady in front were pregnant I was fuming!!!


Any who here are some snaps for you all to take a gander at =)

 Nesquick Cereal before we fly - Excited car journey to gatwick - pasty legs desperate for a tan - holiday gel nails 
Nicola and Bump tanning nicely - Tortoise having dinner with us - Josh posing... =/ - Nicola and Me 
Sun in the face - Me and Nicola Sunset - Sisters <3 - Beautiful dinner scenes.
On Friday 4th May I am actually off to Athens with JPs entire family ( all 8 of us!!) for a long weekend which came as such a nice surprise really. Never been to Greece and i'm looking forward to hoovering up some more sunshine in my life.

On Monday 7th May - Sunday 20th I am attending the London Muse Foundation to Advanced Make-up Course which I am SUPER excited about. Nothing better than furthering your knowledge in a subject you truly enjoy doing. I have asked to take photos and vlog the days so hopefully this is ok to do so keep your eyes pealed for footage/blogs from the classes.

Because of the busy times ahead Blogging and Videos on youtube will be minimal. I am going to try my very best to record in the evenings and blog my days at London Muse so any support will be greatly appericated during these up and coming weeks.

I do have 2 newish videos up for you already also explaining what i'm up to:

Update about my course, Turkey holiday and Race for Life

April Favourites and a little update at the end.

WOAH this post is huge. Must be making up for my neglect.

I do have some products that have been sent to me to review whilst I was away so hope to get these up asap too!

SOOOOOO..... (fingers hurt now) until my next post I shall speak to you all very soon.
Thank you so very much for your continued support with  my blog and YouTube even though there hasn't been much material recently.
