Venice – Sephora & Souvenirs Haul.

23sep151

For any beauty blogger, holiday trip is not complete without a beauty haul and I am not in exception either and hence, I went on a hunt trail for beauty haul in Sephora and also, some world-famous glass souvenirs from Murano too. Plus, I am very glad that money has been spent wisely and didn’t splash too much albeit. Well, even before the holiday, I made up my mind very clear that a visit to Sephora is a must as there isn’t any Sephora in UK though and so, I grabbed this opportunity instantly and also without fail.

Moreover, when I first entered into Sephora, I literally felt like I was in a beauty heaven as all of their array of shelves were arranged and ordered with tremendous amount of beauty galore and I should say that my bulging drooling eyes were constantly spotting onto the beauty aisles all the time and it was like a jaw-dropping experience. Even though, I have lip glosses, eye palettes, blushes and bronzers as a separate beauty staple, this time I was looking for a all-in-one package and that’s where, this time I bumped onto this massive makeup set that contains all the beauty pieces that I opted for. Wow! I am totally addictive to this product right now as it has 36 pans of eye shadows, 12 shades of lip glosses, 4 shades of blushers and two tones of bronzers and anyway, what else could I ask for? Besides, the pigmentation of the eye shadows are so gorgeous and the creaminess of the shade is perfect to blend onto the eyes as just like a second skin and while moving onto the lip glosses, it just applies onto the lips like a butter and gives out a mirror like reflection of the shade onto the lips and then, while coming along to the blusher, the texture of the blusher is incredibly super soft and it leaves a dab of pinky or peachy tones onto the cheeks instantly and lastly, the bronzers are great to define the cheek bones and it leaves the cheeks with the long-lasting gorgeously glowing bronzy look.

Furthermore, as we all know, Murano is famous for its glass making artistry and after visiting that gorgeous place, one can’t come home empty-handed and even though, there were so many products available from glass vases to containers and from chandeliers to collectibles and from bracelets to rings but with the biggest hurdle of luggage restriction, this time I opted for smaller items that I can keep comfortably in my hand luggage yet still could able to cherish those memories anytime ever after and that’s why, this time I landed onto buy some couple of pair of earrings and a photo frame to satisfy my thirst quenching desires for glass staples. Doesn’t they look gorgeous!

Murano – A Day Trip from Venice, Italy.

21sep151

Well, there are so many options to explore more of Venice and one particular spot that is consistently bustling with tourists is always said to be Murano. Murano is just 1.5kms away from Venice and there are also frequent water transports available at your own convenience. So, if you are looking for a day trip that is not too far from Venice yet still would like to spend most of the daytime by walking and strolling through the galleries and buying glass souvenirs, then Murano is the quintessential location for it. By the way, the above picture is one of the parking bays in the centre of Murano.

Moreover, there are plenty of gelato and sandwich shops are available at any time of the day and these shops are scattered all across the lanes to fulfil every thirst-quenching hungry customer needs; plus, the neat and tidied stone tiled pathways gives a phenomenal ambience for the globetrotter to make themselves comfortable while on their memorable journey.

Besides too, Murano has some unique features where you can’t see anywhere else as the canal in here runs right in the middle of the island and either part of the canal is always adorned with glass makers, souvenir shops, glass galleries and restaurants. In further, to make the whole bustling atmosphere even more lively, there are also several small bridges that runs across the canal and they look so gorgeous to see and it is such a pleasure to watch too.

Furthermore, if you are looking for any kind of glass statement pieces, then sky is the limit as these Murano shops are filled up with thousands of souvenirs to collectibles that includes: rings, bracelets, watches, animal collections, flower collections, vases, earrings, necklaces, pendants, chandeliers, lamp shades, coasters, bowls, plates and many more. And, the interesting part is that most of these glass shops have their magnificent glass making workshops at their backyard and luckily, I had a great chance to get a sneak peek into some of the glass making techniques that they use – Oh my goodness! the amount of work those tradesmen put in is certainly a hats off job as it is such a tremendous piece of hard work to do in their day-to-day work schedule.

After getting stuffed up with bag full of fantastic collectibles, the next mandatory stop would be Venice and I should definitely say that not only Murano is so good, the entire trip is like a treasure land that has a plentiful of architectural monuments and buildings that spread all across the water channel that dates back many centuries before.

Look at the ancient settlements that has so much flare for architectural excellence and most of these structures are mostly dominated by domes and towers and it is such a historical place to explore at least once in your lifetime.

These are some of the pictures that I clicked on my return trip from Murano to Venice and I would surely say that this trip is one of the most memorable holiday trip that I ever had in my life.
