The 9th January 2016 marked me and my boyfriends 3 year anniversary, so what a good excuse for us go for a romantic spa weekend away! To be honest even when it isn't a special occasion I will always find some excuse to convince him we should head to the Doubletree, (it's my half year birthday). or something plausible like that..)
This is simply our favorite hotel in the UK, it's in a great location, gorgeous rooms, 2 great restaurants and to top it off access to the most amazing spa!
The hotel kindly upgraded us to one of the lovely Suites which was just fantastic, the rooms are already so lovely so this special added touch made the trip the best one yet!
I got as many photos as I could of the hotel & room however it rained for most of our trip & we arrived late on the first night so there wasn't any natural light in the room. (I am a perfectionist with photograph's so I got quite annoyed!!!) So some I have included some of the hotels own photographs at the bottom so you can see how beautiful the hotel really is!
(The photo's of the spa are all from the hotel website as I wasn't able to take my camera into the spa).

Shopping at Cheshire Oaks - Designer Outlet.
The Doubletree in convinently (or inconvinetnly if you're supposed to be saving like me...) locatated 10 minutes from Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet. An outlet village featuring brands such as: Mulberry, Nike, Ralph Lauren, Paperchase, Burberry, Links of London, LULU Guinness, Hugo Boss, Yankee Candle & Many more. You can see the full list here > Cheshire Oaks The Brands .
I did quite well to prevent myself from going to crazy, but I did pick up a few "bargains".
The Cosmetics Store
Estee Lauder - Doublewear
This is one of my favorite foundations, It gives amazing coverage & lasts all day. So whenever I see my shade available in an outlet store I always pick a bottle up to stock up on. It usually retails at £30, but I picked mine up for £21 in the outlet.

MAC Prep & Prime Fix +
I have been wanting to try Fix + for a while now so when I spotted it in the outlet I thought "you're going straight in my basket" (sorry couldn't resist..). Anyway I absolutely love it! I've so far used it as a primer, which made a great base for my foundation. I also used it as a make up setting spray, it gives a gorgeous dewy look to your makeup without making you look oily! However my favorite use is that I slightly dampen my eye shadow brush with it before applying eye shadow & it immediately makes the eye shadow more pigmented & makes your eyes pop. I will 100% be repurchasing this product! Love love love!
It retails at £17, but the outlet price was £12.75. Bargain!

Bumble & Bumble Thickening Conditioner
It's no secret that my favorite hair products are all from Bumble & Bumble... the thickening range is my go-to hair care. So whenever I see if cheaper, I grab whatever I can! I picked up this mini version of my conditioner, unfortunately they didn't have the matching Shampoo!
1. Lashes - I love lashes, I think they take your make-up from day-time to evening so well. These Ardell chocolate lashes are great because they come in a dark brown colour so they look so natural, they are actually available at Tesco (here). I also picked up some amazing shine lashes which I have used before & really liked them, they're so cheap & available on Amazon (here).
2. Maybelline FIT ME concealer. I actually brought this in a dark shade (Shade DEEP) to use as a contour product. I have seen a few beauty you tubers using it so I thought I would give it a go. Its great as its so blendable and the perfect contour colour for me. Why not try it, Its available at boots (here) for £5.99.
3. Finally I picked up this gorgeous blush from Revolution - Vivid Baked Blusher. It is SO gorgeous, its mineralised looking & is a great highlighting blush as it has a slight shimmer which looks amazing on the apples of your cheeks! It cost me £1.99 !! Bargain! You can buy it from Superdrug for £2.50 (Here) shade "Make Love Instead".
Yankee Candle Outlet
I am a candle hoarder.. My room is like a shrine, so I DID NOT need anymore candles. But when your favourite scent "snowflake cookie" is in the outlet, you have to pick up at least a few minitures right... Also a cute car jar.... and a candy cane lane melt.... yeah.
In true Georgie style, all 3 items purchased from the Paperchase "outlet" were actually the new season stock & so weren't discounted.. but just look at them.. how could I resist, because everyone NEEDS copper push pins, right?
Rose gold/Copper push pin/paper clips & clips set £8.00 Here
I can't find the notebook or pen online but I'm sure they'll still be available in store!
I hope you liked this post! Where do you like to go on your weekends away? I would love to hear!
