Paris Diary | Day Five: Shopping in Paris - MAC, Sephora and KIKO Cosmetics Haul!

On our last day in Paris, Liam and I decided to do a bit of shopping. Our train wasn't until later that evening, but I still wanted to get a few bits for my Secret Santa in the #BloggersSecretSanta14. And of course some bits and bobs for myself...I was in Paris afterall!

Paris Diary | Day Four: Artsy and Cultured - Musée du Louvre

Dino's Beauty Diary - Paris Diary - Day Four - The Louvre Museum

One of the things I was most excited about when we visited Paris was attending the Louvre. Home to some of the world's most amazing exhibits and paintings, I couldn't wait! And who could forget the Mona Lisa?

Paris Diary | Day Three: Lowest and Highest Points - Parisian Catacombs and the Eiffel Tower

Day Three of Paris and Liam wanted to visit the Catacombs...I guess taking him to see 'As Above, So Below' didn't put him off the idea. So we headed down outside of the main tourist-y areas of Paris towards the Catacombs. All in all, we waited for only around 30-45 minutes to get inside, which was a blessing really as the official website stated there's normally around a 2-3 hour wait!

Paris Diary | Day Two: Armistice Day - Musée de l'Armée and Notre-Dame Cathederal

Our second day in Paris happened to coincide with Armistice day, so we planned on visiting the Army Museum in Paris and Notre Dame Cathederal. Instead of travelling around Paris via the Metro or a tour bus, we instead opted to do most of it on foot. This was perfect for us, as it really helped capture the beauty of the city. That, and we got to see all the different spots in our own time.

Paris Diary | Day One: A Walking Tour - Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and Champs-Élysées

Paris is a beautiful city. Visiting in autumn was perfect for me; the leaves are turning gorgeous deep shades and the air seems crisper. I couldn't believe my luck when my lovely boyfriend suggested a city break for us both to have some alone time.

#BloggersSecretSanta14 | Nottingham

#BloggersSecretSanta14 - Ned Ludd Nottingham - Bloggers Event - Dino's Beauty Diary

On Saturday, the day myself and Hannah had been madly preparing for arrived. #BloggersSecretSanta14. Waking up at 5.30 that morning (after getting back from Paris in the night) I was exhausted and also filled with nerves. Afterall, it was our first time hosting an event and we wanted everything to run so smoothly!

Coast to Coast | Christmas Preview - Sheffield

Back at the beginning of November (crazy backlog of posts since going to Paris), the lovely Hannah text me to see what I was up to on the 4th November. Being free, she gladly informed me of a event happening in Sheffield in the evening, and the place was looking for bloggers to sample their Christmas menu and participate in a cocktail masterclass.

TV Review | The Walking Dead S05E04: 'Slabtown'

Dino's Beauty Diary - The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 4 Slabtown TV Review

On last weeks The Walking Dead we were left on a cliffhanger, with Daryl returning to the group and asking someone to come out when asked where Carol was. The internet has been steadily growing with ideas, from it being Carol or Beth, to a completely new character who somehow managed to find our favourite hero. With that, I couldn't wait until this weeks episode - we finally get a look at where Beth has been, and we may even find out who was lurking in the woods!

Hair Review | The Body Shop 'Tickle Me Pink' Hair Chalk

Dino's Beauty Diary - The Body Shop Tickle Me Pink Hair Chalk

Back in June, I celebrated my 22nd birthday (and right about now I feel twice as old). As well as being spoilt rotten with presents, I got quite a few gift cards and went on a bit of a shopping splurge, which can be found here. Among all the clothes I brought, I couldn't resist purchasing this Body Shop Hair Chalk in 'Tickle Me Pink' for £5.00.

TV Review | The Walking Dead S05E03: 'Four Walls and a Roof'

First of all I want to apologise for this post being ridiculously late - someone close to me is really ill at the moment and I've been visiting them recently, so some of my posts are a bit behind schedule. That being said, lets jump into my review of Season 5's 'Four Walls and a Roof'.
