Tiny Alis Travels

Tuesday, 29 July 2014

So. After about 3 months of silence on here, I thought it might be time to give a little update on what's been going on. I decided to have a small break from blogging while I was finishing my exams at university, but unfortunately I've had a few bad surprises over the summer, and it's been pretty rough going. I'm not going to sit here and dwell on that though since I have way more exciting things coming up!

In a matter of days, I'll be moving to America. To live and study. For a year! I'm going to be living in Maine and studying at their university as part of my course. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to set up a travels blog, which for someone like me who is pretty unadventurous, is a pretty big step. If you love to read about road trips and travelling around, or if you are interested in the idea of studying abroad then hopefully you'll enjoy reading it! It's not got too much to offer right now in terms of posts, but with a road trip through New York, Boston and other places before I settle in at uni planned, there is bound to be some pretty interesting posts coming up.

As for Tiny Alis, I'll try to keep posting but for the next few weeks life is looking pretty manic so after I settle in America maybe I can branch out into their beauty world! Thank you for the patience guys, it's appreciated.

The Shades of Summer

Brown Tortoise Shell Retro Sunglasses - River Island - £10
A few years ago, I went through a stage where I owned about 12 pairs of sunglasses that I had on rotation throughout the summer. A couple of years and move to uni later, this collection was drastically streamlined and I stuck to one pair of H&M beauties since. However when this summer arrived, I found that they had cracked all around the frame and were a bit unwearable, which led me on the hunt for a replacement pair.

Countless online searches later found me this little pair which I have been loving since I got them for my birthday! I have a pretty small face, which is pretty much a perfect sphere so big oversized glasses don't really suit me, so I stuck to the simple wayfarer design and the tortoise shell brown I was already used to. I can see these lasting for many summers to come, and hopefully, if this weekend's weather is anything to go by, they will get a lot of use over the next couple of months as well!

What sunglasses are you rocking this summer?

Rita Ora for Rimmel Nail Polishes

Monday, 12 May 2014

Rita Ora for Rimmel - L to R: Breakfast in Bed; Lose Your Lingerie; Pillow Talk.
Rita Ora is the most recent addition to Rimmel's celebrity ranks, joining Kate Moss. The songstress has collaborated with Rimmel to release a number of lip crayons and 60 second nail polishes, in some great shades. Admittedly I've not tried the lip crayons - I don't know how many more lip crayon releases I can take - but some of the nail polishes really caught my eye.
