I first discovered the Beauty Atelier on Twitter. They have such a fun feed and their logo in particular really stood out to me, being so colourful and vibrant. After complimenting them on their gorgeous lash collection they sent me the most gorgeous bundle of goodies to try, including fluttery long lashes and make up tools including sponge and face cleanser.

I was so excited to try the goodies out. I have not used sponges previously – opting for my trusty Real Techniques brush collection every time, but I must admit after using this sponge for the first time it has truly revolutionised how I do my make up from now on. It gives my skin such a flawless finish which as I am entering into Summer and coming out from hibernation will be perfect for those long Summer days in the sunshine.

To get to my ultimate fave part of the package. The Beauty Atelier sent me a range of gorgeous lashes to try including three beautiful sets of fluttery lashes. Along with three sets of Luxurious Silk lashes. These included #Romantic – perfect for that gorgeous date night, candlelit dinner, #Precious – perfect for that family reunion and making Auntie so jealous that you have lashes to die for and #Glamorous for those nights out with the girls, partying until dawn.

The packaging was great and shows off the product so well. I’ve found recently that I really dislike that packaging on lashes where you can’t see the full effect of what you are getting straight away – anyone agree? These are great though as they have solid clear packaging so you know they won’t get damaged and you know exactly what you are getting for your money.

I can’t wait to wear these over Summer alongside some cute outfit of the day looks so make sure you keep an eye on my instagram for upcoming pics!

If you’re looking for lashes for your next girly night out – this is definitely the place to go! At around £15 they are certainly value for money with such a gorgeous texture and a bold, unique look with the addition of a good lash glue they are guaranteed to see you through those Summer parties and outings!

#SendMeAway with IceLolly.com – My Dream Destination for 2016

In 2016, this Olympic year, my dream destination would have to be Rio de Janeiro in Brazil! This city has everything a perfect holiday destination has to offer; sun, sea, beautiful beaches along with some truly magnificent cultural sites to visit. Not only that but there are some truly amazing photo opportunities to be taken, with vibrant, colourful scenery, beautiful views and fabulous people! It would be the perfect place to visit in Summer 2016.

Check out my top 5 things to do whilst visiting Rio de Janeiro below and let me know if you have any more hidden gems!

Visit Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain. Christ the Redeemer, an icon of Rio, stands tall above the city and is best seen either from a helicopter or by making the climb up to it. It was completed in 1931 and is 30 metres in height (not including the base) and was beautifully designed in an art deco style by French sculptor, Paul Landowski. Another fantastic site to behold is Sugarloaf Mountain. Sugarloaf Mountain, stands tall opposite the Christ the Redeemer statue and is rated to be one of the top sites to see on a trip to Rio and with it’s fantastic views it’s easy to see why! Located on a peninsula out in the Atlantic Ocean it is widely known for its cable cars as a way to reach the top for the most spectacular 360 degree views over the city of Rio de Janeiro.

A visit to Rio isn’t complete without a trip to Copacabana Beach. This beautiful beach, up to 4km long, is one of the many beaches located around the coastline of Rio de Janeiro. The beaches play host to a mix of activity, from beach soccer matches to games of volleyball, through to sun worshippers and swimmers.

Carnival in Rio is like no other. One of the most famous festivals in the world, the carnival is full of the most vibrant, colourful costumes from the revellers and floats from Samba schools located in Rio. The carnival took place between February 6th and 10th in 2016 and will be taking place between 24th February and 1st March in 2017 if you want to experience it for yourself!

Brazilian food is a mixture of Portuguese, African and Amazon influenced delicacies, however something you will definitely come across is barbecued meat – and a lot of it! Want to try some Brazilian barbecue before heading there? Why not visit the fabulous Rodizio Preto (so yummy I’m off there for my birthday meal next month!) One of the few foods that you will find wherever you visit in Brazil is Feijoada, a delicious stew of black beans, sausages and pork which is truly a labour of love taking up to 24 hours to cook. It’s definitely worth it though!

Rio is home to the 2016 Olympics. Last held in London back in 2012 (has it really been 4 years?!), Rio will play host to this fantastic sporting event with everything from swimming and diving through to athletics and cycling. A trip to Barra Olympic Park is essential on a visit to Rio, located to the south of the city. The Olympics will be taking place August 5th to August 21st 2016.
