Travel Vlog: Paris & London

Happy Monday!

Our trip to Paris and London back in 2012 was so beyond exciting for me. It was my first overseas vacation in a very long time (the motherland never counts!), I was going away with Waseem, & hello he ended up proposing to me in Paris! Literally a dream come true. Fast forward 3.5 years, a week away from 2016, both of us burnt out from an extremely busy, but amazing, year and our friends convince us to go to London with them on 6 days notice! We didn’t care that we were running on fumes, we were so excited to jetset with our friends and revisit an itinerary so near and dear to our hearts. My individual Paris and London photo-diaries are on the way but I wanted to share my vlog with you the moment I finished it today! Our 2012 trip was my very first travel vlog; and it wasn’t very good haha so I’m excited to come back with a do-over! We were corny sightseers the whole time so hopefully this isn’t too boring. Enjoy!!

Lancôme Auda[city] in Paris Palette

I’ve been a quiet Francophile ever since my husband proposed to me in Paris 3 years ago.. when he would call me his preanceé (pre-fianceé LOL). I am so overdue on a visit back! While I’ve had Paris on the brain, I was so excited to see Lancôme’s newest palette, Auda[city] in Paris, show up at my door! This is Lancôme’s first multi-pan palette and it’s a beauty! I used it in a makeup tutorial a few weeks ago so you might have caught it floating around my blog. I think it’s a great neutral-ish palette with a couple fun yet subtle colors. The shadows are pretty sheer, particularly the mattes, but everything is buildable especially if you use an eyeshadow primer (highly recommended with this palette) – I think Auda[city] in Paris is wonderful for the more conservative woman looking for a little variety without going overboard. It’s a great palette to create a day look that you can transform into an evening look – since I tend to be pretty gaudy with my makeup, I think I’ll gift this beauty to my mommy. She’ll love it!

Lancôme’s Auda[city] in Paris palette retails for $68 at all Lancôme counters & retailers.

Ulta, Sephora, Macy’s, Nordstorm, Bloomingdale’s, Saks, Bergdorf, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus
