For those who have been long term readers of this blog then you may be aware of my strictly "as little of my face as possible" policy when uploading photos, so this post may come as a shock for some. I mean, this is some serious selfie-game (not something I am too proud of) but hey, if you can't mass upload photographs of yourself after a week long holiday in the sun, then when can you? I thought that I should show off some of my favourite fashion looks over the course of the week in the sun in Portugal, and also show you the make-up that I paired with it. If you like this style of post make sure to let me know in the comments below, and you may see my face (and if you're really lucky then maybe the rest of my body also) cropping up here in the future! These photos were taken by my wondrous sister Eilidh and some of the pictures can be found on her or my instagram accounts, so make sure you follow both of us to make sure you don't miss any future updates! 

Day One
We flew from Edinburgh to Lisbon bright and early on the Tuesday morning and so managed to settle into our beautiful second-floor apartment by late afternoon. This meant that I had to fly in something weather appropriate from both ends of the flight (which there was over a ten degree temperature difference!) I decided upon this long skirt from River Island paired with a crop top from Newlook, and through the airport and during the flight I also wore my trusty denim jacket from Ben Sherman. The nail polish I wore all week was this beautiful blue I have raved about 300 times on this blog by Barry M. Because I was travelling I kept my make-up very clean and simple with SPF BB cream, mascara, my trusty eyebrow pen from Soap and Glory and some Maybelline Baby Lips.

Day Two
This was our first day, and having not yet acclimatised I went for an all jersey outfit that was light and breathable in the midday heat. This bardot top from Topshop has become one of my favourites, and looked perfectly summery with this simple New Look skirt that I've had for over a year now. These sandals, also from Topshop, were a new purchase for this holiday, and you will see them feature in almost every outfit post due to their extreme comfort. This picture was taken outside of a contemporary art museum in the Belem region of Lisbon and is still one of my favourite memories from the whole holiday. I took inspiration from the purples in the skirt for my make-up and used Satin Taupe by MAC all over the eye on a fluffy brush and paired it with a nude lip (MAC fanfare).

Day Three
As if the tiles don't give it away, on the Thursday we hit up the local aquarium, which has been complimented as one of the biggest and best of its kind in the world. Dayum. It certainly did not disappoint, and neither did this jumpsuit that cost me a whole £8 during a promotional sale at Missguided. This black and white palm print made for the perfect city-break-chic look, and I decided to keep my make-up looking similarly polished with a thin swipe of liner and a matte red lip.

Day Four
On the Friday we knew that the weather was going to take a turn for the cooler (well... 27 degrees may not exactly be "cool") and so we decided to take the train to Sintra where we visited the historic and beautiful palaces. Thanks to my amazing luck, I was unfortunately dealing with some pretty tough cramps and so had to sit the second palace out, but it allowed me time to sit back and take in the spectacular views and perfect weather. I was wearing this gorgeous coord made by wonderful designer Lily Collett which my sister bought me for Christmas, and was my first time wearing it! It is incredibly comfortable and lightweight and looks amazingly stylish - I would highly recommend! The greens in the print matched perfectly with MAC's Sumptuous Olive eye shadow and a peachy lip a la Nars Niagara. 

Day Five
Definitely one of the most exciting days, Eilidh and I decided to head into the centre of Lisbon and do some shopping. We gazed into the windows of Prada, Gucci and Pronovias, and picked up lots of bits from highstreet stores such as Mango, Zara and H&M (Jealous much Europe... how come your branches of these stores are far better than ours in Scotland?!?). This was also the day I picked up some bits from Sephora, which you can see in full in my Sephora haul from Sunday. Wanting to look my most fashionable this day, I wore this vibrant orange playsuit from Topshop with a floppy hat from Newlook. I couldn't not add a bold orange lip and some serious liner to finish off this look. 

Day Six
This was by far the hottest day of the week, with the temperature rising to a sweltering 37 degrees celsius. Having been on our feet for the past five days non-stop, we decided to spend this day chilling out, and so I had a lazy morning before reading some of my book and then watching a cycle race with my Dad outs in the shady streets of the city centre. This skirt is a Liberty's original and was given to me by my Grandma who no longer had a use for it (I originally took it as I needed the label for my art project) and I am in love with it! I wore a black crop top with it and large tangling earrings and a gold eye for the perfect boho look. 

Day Seven
Our final day had approached incredibly quickly, and so Eilidh and I spent the day wandering the streets and taking photos for my art project, exploring any areas of the south side of the city that we'd missed. It was another beautiful hot day and so we retired early back to our flat to have aperitifs with our mum before heading back out for some sorvete (means ice cream.. look at me with the lingo!). This skirt featured in my SS15 style guide and is from Asos. It's a beautiful way to wear the white and crochet trends and feels both stylish and relaxed. My outfit was fairly black and white, and so I decided to add a pop of colour with a matte fuchsia lip. My perfume of the week was my trusty Miss Dior which I blogged about last summer
