I always try not to miss the Viva Glam campaign when it rolls round, since it's all of the proceeds that go to charity and you get a lipstick out of it! This is probably the first Viva Glam shade that I've really fallen in love with, it reminded me of Pink Pigeon but much more vibrant. I originally went for the lipstick alone, then I saw how stunning it looked with the Miley Cyrus Lip Glass paired with it and had to snap up a gloss too. I guess the fact that it was in duty free helped a bit!
In summary, I am really impressed with these products for their longetivity as well as colour payoff. Just don't wear the Lip Glass on a windy day, I learned that the hard way.
Latvia...why Latvia of all places? Is the question most of my family and friends asked when I announced that me and Dale were taking a city break in Riga. A brief history will tell you that Latvia, one of the three Baltic countries nestled in between Estonia and Lithuania and bordering Russia. In my quick research of the land, I was amazed at how sparse the population was, with 2 million inhabiting the entire country compared to a whoppingly saturated 8.3 million in London alone.
I love to visit places that are steeped in history and Latvia is perfect in that sense as they have only been independent from Communism for 20 years. However in those two decades they have grown immensely with the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings and I'm sad to say that they put Brits to shame language-wise as English is widely spoken as well as Latvian and also sometimes Russian and German. Phew. I will stop rambling now and let the photos speak for themselves.
