I don’t have a lot to say this week really, as I was away for work in Birmingham for a few days, which annoyingly meant I missed out on some really cool events!  That’s adult life though, I guess…

Yes, another tattoo…

Yeah, I know, I’ve had a few recently! I tend to do that – go for ages without getting any, then a load in one go. There were the Friday 13th ones, and the rose on my calf (that still isn’t healing well) – and this one is a Disney inspired rose and snow globe by Paula Castle at Nevermore Tattoo in Daventry.

This is my second tattoo by Paula, and I love it so much, it turned out even nicer than I imagined it! It’s on the back of my thigh, and fits really nicely just below the bottom of my koi side piece. I want to fill that thigh up with random thngs I love, and I’m already in talks with Paula about another addition early next year.

Paula is one of my favourite tattooists – she’s so talented and her ideas are so fresh and original. If you want someone who will think outside the box, she’s perfect. And being outside London her rates are really reasonable. She’s also a lovely, lovely person.


La Roche Posay Christmas Party

La Roche Posay are a brand who looks after their bloggers – they have gatherings throughout the year and they’re always so fun. This one was held in the basement bar of Carousel in Mayfair – I’m a big fan of this venue and they host some awesome pop ups.


Not only was it a lovely party with great canapes and free flowing cocktails, it was also the launch of a couple of new La Roche Posay products – the Effaclar BB Blur and the Hydraphase Intense Serum, both of which we were kindly gifted, along with one of my favourites of their products, Serozinc.


La Roche Posay has been a favourite of mine for a long time, their products are one of few that actually seem to keep my skin at bay. And I’m a big fan of BB creams, as I tend to favour a natural look, so I’m excited to give Effaclar BB Blur a go! I went for shade fair/light but it’s also available in light/medium.


Big Blogging Christmas Party

On Saturday I attended this event arranged by Souers De Luxe at Finch’s in Moorgate with Luisa Christie (Eat Sleep Luisa Repeat), Lauren (Saharasplash), Chan (Like Cupcake Chan) and Lily.

Loads of brands had stands, including Lash Perfect who I’m a big fan of (thanks for the lashes!), Blogosphere magazine, and Miglio Jewellery (who gifted us some lovely earrings) amongst others. There was also a pretty decent goody bag.

blogosphere magazine

I was also gifted this super cute illustration of me on a keyring from Aloha Lola Cards!


So that’s it for this week, but I have a way more exciting week coming up next…

Last week I started a little round up of my life post series, it seemed to go down pretty well so I’m going to keep it going, at least for a bit!

This week was a pretty good week, I had a couple of cool blogger events, met some awesome new people and caught up with good friends I hadn’t seen for a while.

An evening with Frank & Jack Daniels

You know by now that I like a bit of JD, right? So obviously I had a fantastic time at an event celebrating 100 years of Sinatra, featuring a showing of the original Oceans 11 movie, some Blackjack and free flowing Whisky Sours and Sinatra Century whisky. More about this on the blog soon.


SuperDry party with Idris Elba

Well, this one was a bit of a let down – but at least I had some good company, including my blogger friend Lauren of Saharasplash.

If you aren’t aware, Idris launched a range of mens clothing with Superdry this week, and we went along to the launch party. Idris made a brief appearance with a bunch of male models on arrival, but afterward was nowhere to be seen. There were complimentary Asahi beers and terrible cocktails but the venue (the Superdry store on Regent Street) was overcrowded and it just wasn’t fun.


Thanksgiving Dinner

We went straight from Superdry to Thanksgiving Dinner at The Breakfast Club, so Thursday evening got a lot better! Good food, great company, and worth of its own post so watch this space.


The Independent Label Market

I was up way too early for a Saturday morning to be first in line at the Exit Records stand at the Independent Label Market at Old Spitalfields Market. My Californian friend Davis is a vinyl collector, so I was sent to haggle for rare test presses – I think I did pretty well, leaving with £173 worth of vinyl!


Expressing my inner Barista with Nespresso & Currys PC World

Now I’m not the biggest coffee drinker, so I wasn’t sure how this one would turn out, but I had such a good time at this Joe Blogs organised event at The Fable in Farringdon. The Johnny Walker and Kraken cocktails were obviously the highlight! But I did also learn a little about coffee…


Bring Me The Horizon

Every time BMTH are playing in or around London I think it’s pretty safe to say I’ll be there, and this time I trekked all the way to Alexandra Palace in Muswell Hill to see my favourite band. As usual, they didn’t disappoint.


So that’s my week in a few paragraphs! Anyone get up to anything good?

On Sunday I attended the annual Olympia Beauty event at Kensington Olympia with my usual blogging crew – Luisa of Eat Sleep Luisa Repeat and Lauren of Saharasplash, with the addition of our adorable Aussie friend Sophie. We also had the pleasure of bumping into the lovely Caz of Style Lingua and Serene of I Am Serene L.


This is the first time I’ve attended Olympia Beauty – it’s basically a look at upcoming beauty launches and trends from beauty brands, most of who also have products on sale, some with show discounts. There are also discounted treatments on offer – from gel manicures to teeth whitening to eyelash extensions.

It seemed that a lot of the stands were focused on gel nails, which don’t really pique my interest, and there is also a lot that is only for professionals, but there is plenty to browse and buy for your average person too. I was really excited to see some brands which I haven’t had the chance to check out in person before, in particular Inglot, NYX and Kryolan.

Anyone can attend Olympia Beauty, I believe entry is around £20, however if you work in the industry or are a blogger or similar you can apply to enter for free. If you’re into your beauty products I’d highly recommend it!

I’m not going to write too much about the event, there’s really only so much you can say about a show like this. So instead I’ll share my haul with you, everyone loves a good haul post!

So here goes, these are my purchases from the event…


CandyLipz Model A Xtreme Lip Shaper Set (RRP £44.99) – Bit of a controversial one this. I first came across the CandyLipz plumpers earlier this year, before they were available in the UK. I really wanted one but shipping costs from the US were extortionate. Shortly after, a load of YouTube videos were circulated showing horrendous bruising around the lips when people used them (and similar products, but mostly makeshift homeware instead). It didn’t put me off – some research revealed that this could be minimised using a mouth cushion, but some bruising was normal during a 10 day ‘conditioning period’ and would not happen every time the product was used.

So when the UK CandyLipz stand caught my eye, with a special show discount, I had to give one a go! And I was surprised to see Luisa Zissman (from The Apprentice and Celebrity Big Brother) at the stand. Luisa is the UK Ambassador for CandyLipz – it is she who decided she wanted to bring the product to the UK market as she loves it. I’m a big fan of Luisa (as a fellow girly girl in a male dominated work environment I loved her on The Apprentice) and in person she was an absolute delight – so if CandyLipz is good enough for her, I’ll certainly give it a go! Besides, I’d rather try this before jumping straight in with lip fillers (which I had also been considering).

I’d been a bit uncertain as to which of the sets I should go for – there’s the Apple for small to medium lip widths, and the Liquorice for wider lips and large teeth arches. I was happy to be told that the Apple was the one for me, as it’s so cute!

I will no doubt be reporting back on my CandyLipz experience.


Crown BK8 Deluxe Fan Brush (RRP £6.99) – On my wishlist forever has been the NARS Ita Kabuki Brush for contouring the hollows of my cheeks. But since I can’t see myself spending £43 on a brush anytime soon, I’ve been looking for a fan brush to use for the same purpose, and this one seemed perfect. I hadn’t realised at the time of purchase that it was made of natural badger hair – I personally prefer synthetic brushes.

Crown SS005 Deluxe Mini Lash Fan Brush (RRP £2.49) – This brush was a bit of an afterthought after I grabbed the other fan brush – I thought it might be good for contouring the sides of my nose. Looks like it’s actually for sweeping away loose pigments that fall under the eyes while you do your eye make up. Oh well, still going to try the contouring with it.


Dr Paw Paw Tinted Ultimate Red Balm (RRP £6.95) – I’ve seen beauty bloggers rave about Dr Paw Paw lately, so I had to try one! I actually thought I’d go for the Tinted Peach balm, as peachy pinks and corals are my go to shades, but when I tried them on I absolutely loved the red for the just bitten look it gave my lips. I’m really fussy with lip balms, I hate anything that feels greasy or heavy on my lips, but I really like the feel of Dr Paw Paw, and it left my lips lovely and soft. Not just for lips, it’s a multi purpose balm, with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.


Inglot Body Sparkles in ‘Silver 66’ (RRP £13) – You know how obsessed I am with my number one girl crush Samantha Ravndahl of Batalash? Well this product has been on my wishlist since watching one of her tutorials for a ‘grunge look’ (which you can watch here if you’re interested). This is such a stunning true silver, so sparkly. I love silver for eyes, I really find it makes my blue eyes pop. Luisa also really loved this product when we tried it at the Inglot stand.


Inglot AMC Lip Gloss in ‘544’ (RRP £13) – An impulse Inglot purchase from their little range of duochromatic glosses. The whole range was dreamy, but I went for the reddish pink ‘544’ because it was the most pigmented and wearable without needing to layer over another product. Sophie loved them too, and bought 3 of the ones I didn’t! Sadly you can’t tell in the picture how duochrome it is.


LA Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss in ‘Dreamy’ (RRP £5.99) – For everyday wear I love LA Girl Cosmetics, as they’re so well priced with good basics. ‘Dreamy’ is my go to colour for if I’m just off to work or want something super casual, it’s just a warm neutral and is a great alternative to all the cool toned neutrals that are everywhere at the moment. The formula on these is great, it’s a lovely matte finish and isn’t at all sticky with decent wear time, and is really well priced in comparison with their competitors.

I found this at the Beauty B Cosmetics stand – I wanted to give them a mention because I hadn’t come across them before, and with an impressive list of brands including LA Splash and Melt Cosmetics, they’re definitely a good find!


Melody-Claire Elegant Depilation Hair Removal System (RRP £19.99) – Not sure about this purchase just yet, but at only £10 at the show I thought it couldn’t hurt to try it, since I hate shaving and waxing. It’s basically a handheld micro crystal pad that you rub on your skin in circular motions to remove hair and exfoliate the skin. From online reviews it seems this might be a hit or miss product, so we’ll have to see how I get on!

NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray (RRP £8) – I have such a problem with shine on my face, and this seemed to work pretty well when I tried it at the counter, so I had to pick one up!


NYX Wonder Pencil in ‘Light’ (RRP £4.50) – As I travel so much I love a good multi purpose product, so it didn’t take much to sell me on a pencil that could be used as a concealer AND lipliner AND eye brightener!

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in ‘Milk’ (RRP £5) – This is a back up purchase of one of my favourite make up items of all time. It’s just a chunky white eyeliner, but it’s perfect for my waterline, or for my lid on it’s own or as a base to make other colours pop. I love it and keep repurchasing it. Shout out to Heidi Cupcake on YouTube who inspired me to buy this product for the first time a couple of years ago!

NYX A Push-Up Bra For Your Eyebrow (RRP £9.50) – I chucked this one in my basket at the last minute. I’m only just learning how to eyebrow, so I’ve been buying a lot of eyebrow pencils/gels etc trying to find the perfect one for me! I thought this dual ended pencil (brow pencil one end, highlighter the other) would be perfect to carry around with me.


NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette – This product isn’t even on the UK site yet. I don’t know how much it’ll be in the UK – I paid £16.20 at the show, and the US price is $25. I’ve heard so many good things about it, and it’s been said it’s a good alternative for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit (I’m not sure about this, the NYX has 8 shades in the palette whereas the ABH has 6, but the ABH comes in different shade combinations for different skintones and NYX just has the one palette). Whatever, it was less than half the price of the ABH (RP £39) and I’m just excited to try it.

The Balm Balm Jovi Rockstar Palette (RRP £37.50) – Another find on the Beauty B Cosmetics stand, The Balm Jovi palette has been on my wishlist FOREVER. I won’t say too much about it now, as it’s worthy of it’s own post, but it’s safe to say it did not disappoint.


On at the same time as Olympia Beauty were the Beauty Blogger Awards and Workshops in a neighbouring room, where not only were they presenting the awards, but they had workshops from brands and bloggers, and stands from brands showcasing their products including NYX, Magnitone and HiBrow.


I was lucky enough to pick up a load of free goodies from NYX and HiBrow among others. A few of the products I was really excited about getting were;

Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish (not sure of RRP, cheapest I’ve found it in the UK is £36.90) – I adore exfoliation, and I’ve bought so many over the years searching for my grail (which I’m yet to find!) so I’m always over the moon to find something like this in a goodie bag!


NYX Wonder Stick in ‘Light/Medium’ (RRP £10) – Another awesome NYX contouring product that isn’t on their UK site (but you can pick it up at Selfridges). It’s a really handy dual ended stick for concealing, highlighting and contouring. I tried it at the counter and loved it – you can actually watch Lauren playing around with it here if you like (check out me looking like a dork in the mirror while I hold the camera, haha!). I was super excited to receive this as a freebie as it was top of my NYX wishlist!


NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in’Gray’ (RRP £2.50) – Nothing exciting, just a gray pencil. But I love a gray liner for an everyday work look so this will come in really handy!

NYX HD Studio Photogenic Finishing Powder (RRP £9.50) – I have a love hate relationship with face powder. Most make me look chalky or orange, but I adore my MAC Prep & Prime Transparent Finishing Powder, and this looks exactly like it in the pot. At £11 cheaper, I’m hoping the NYX will be a decent alternative.

NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in ‘Gleam’ (RRP £7) – I’m obsessed with highlighters, and normally go for champagne shades, so the peachy colour of ‘Gleam’ is a little bit different for me. I think it’s going to lovely on the cheekbones.

I’m surprised if you’ll have persevered to the end of this long haul post – if you have, I hope you’ve enjoyed it! I’d love to hear what anyone else came home with from the show.

As part of the Regent Street Fashion and Design Month, the Karl Lagerfeld store on Regent Street held a lovely VIP evening, with a champagne reception and presentation of the key pieces across both menswear and womenswear for AW15.


As well as my usual companions, Luisa-Christie of Eat Sleep Luisa Repeat and Lauren of Saharasplash, and our non blogger friend Lizzy (who now wants to blog, haha!), I had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful Caz of Style Lingua. We had a great time, trying on cat themed accessories and glam coats, and we were treated to a little Karl Lagerfeld goodie bag each.

One of the things I love about Karl Lagerfeld as a brand is its longevity. Each season, recognisable Karl details are kept which run throughout the ranges; silhouettes of Karl’s face hidden (or not so hidden!) within patterns, zip detailing, leather trims… There are also key pieces which are reinvented for each season – as an example, for men there is always a black skinny jean and a sharp white shirt, for women there is always a fitted leather jacket and a black biker boot with chain detail. You can definitely see hints of Chanel here and there – there’s plenty of boucle and quilting!


The Karl style is timeless yet still manages to remain current – I’m confident that I could invest in a piece and it wouldn’t date, I could wear it to death. When you consider that, the pricing is actually quite reasonable – in line with upper end high street retailers such as Reiss and Karen Millen.

I left wanting pretty much everything in the store – it all fits my style perfectly. The pieces are so versatile – they can be dressed up or down (in my case obviously down!). The colours for this season are predominantly black and a gorgeous grungey olive, with the occasional piece in navy, grey or burgundy. My ideal colour palette.


The brand also has a playful side – we all know how much Karl loves his cat, Choupette, right? I fell completely in love with the Choupette In Love range of accessories – the story behind the range is cute and features Choupette and her new boyfriend, Bad Boy!


Top of my wishlist is the knitted Choupette Beanie at £45…


The Choupette Cats Love Clutch at £115…


And some gorgeous mirrored sunglasses at £99.

I’m not sure if I’m glad I went to the event – I now have a new brand to add to my list of favourites, but I think my bank balance may suffer!

On Monday I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend the Bloggers Love Fashion Week, organised by The Bloggers Hangout (formerly known as Bloggers Love, hence the name of the event!) with some of my favourite blogger friends; Lauren of Saharasplash, Luisa-Christie of Eat Sleep Luisa Repeat, Sadie of Life and Rags and Tessa of Holly Sparkle, as well as my beautiful plus one, SJ.

Now I’d love to have done a detailed, picture heavy post about the day, but I was mugged on my way home and lost all my photos! So my content is limited to images I had already uploaded to social media, and instead I’ll focus on my favourites of the brands I saw on the day. The event was all about discovering and getting to know the brands after all!

Before I start, I will say a little bit about the event for anyone who may be curious. This time it was held at OXO2, a lovely South of the River event space with a beautiful view of the Thames. Seriously, look at this gorgeous sunset that we were treated to!

There were two sessions; 12-3 and 6-9, across which brands showcased their products, with some giving out samples (or in some cases full sized products!) and other goodies. It’s a chance, as a blogger, to discover some brands you may not have previously been aware of, and to network with the brands and other bloggers. There were also beauty treatments, catwalk shows and cocktails from Crush Cocktail Bars. It was great fun, and I’d definitely recommend attending future events if you can.

There was a dress code – all black everything! Despite black really being my thing, I still typically couldn’t pick an outfit and ended up throwing something together at the last minute! I went for my Unif x Urban Outfitters Congregation dress, Black Milk Clothing Dem Lines hosiery and Unif Hellraiser shoes with my trusty Vivienne Westwood Frilly Snake heart bag and Helter Skelter Metalheads Lie With Me necklace. I felt like a baby witch!

An Instagram pic obscuring my outfit with my favourite Motel Rocks dress from their selection is the closest I can get to showing you what I wore! But I think you get the idea.


True Brit London

The first stand I saw was the manicure table for True Brit London, where I had a lovely manicure (on my terrible short nails!) in a beautiful periwinkle blue shade called Georgie Boy. Definitely one I’ll be purchasing, especially as it hasn’t chipped yet, four days later! If you knew how awful I am for chipping polish, you’d find this pretty impressive!

As well as offering free manicures, True Brit had a stand in the gifting lounge, where I was lucky enough to pick up polishes in my three favourite shades; Shoreditch, Chelsea and Racing Green. The polish bottles are beautifully understated and classy – they definitely look like an expensive product. And I love the names of the polishes, it all sticks with the British theme without being tacky.

I’ll definitely be purchasing from True Brit soon – top of my wishlist (as well as Georgie Boy!) are To The Manor Born and Country Tweed. And I really want to invest in their Caviar Base Coat.

Priced at £12.50 per polish, they aren’t cheap but the quality is high and the colours are beautiful. Personally I prefer to have a few stand out polishes than a load of cheap ones, so this really is a brand for me! A little note on the formula – they’re 6-free and contain Vitamin E, elderflower and rose extract.

Their website is worth a browse even if you don’t plan on purchasing – they have a fab social section and blog all of their own!

My True Brit polishes are taking pride of place on my bookshelf currently, as well as my Maison Ves candle (more on that in a moment!).


Maison Ves

Now, I’m fussy with candles. So for me to be posting about candles really says something! Maison Ves is a luxury scented candle brand, elegant in design and luxuriously packaged, fragranced with bespoke oils such as Black Fig, Tuberose, Cinnamon and Orange. I’d consider them in the same ballpark as a brand like Diptyque, or Jo Malone.

What makes Maison Ves a little bit different is their gift appeal. If you look closely at the labels, you can see cheeky hashtags relevant to each occasion. The lemongrass and verbena scented Engagement Candle (£78), for example, features hashtags such as #GAMEOVER and #LASTDAYSOFFREEDOM.

Bloggers were kindly gifted bespoke candles for the occasion, scented with vanilla and coconut (my favourites!) with the hashtags #BLOGGERSRULE #SAYITWITHHASHTAGS and #MAISONVES. Thank you Dee!


Little Ondine

Remember I mentioned how awful I am for chipped polish? I have a terrible habit of not bothering to remove it and just picking it off – all very bad for my nails. So I was interested in checking out Little Ondine.  Remember that peel off nail polish you had as a kid? That was a bit rubbish? Well Little Ondine is a grown up, functional version of that!

I haven’t tried the product yet (I’m not ruining my True Brit manicure!) but I was kindly given a polish to try in shade Back To Black so if I like it, no doubt you’ll see a post about it soon!

Little Ondine polishes are priced from £8.40 to £11, and you can also buy ‘Twin’ mini bottles at £13 for the pair. The polishes are free from any harmful ingredients, according to the packaging.

They have some beautiful holographic shades coming out soon, so keep an eye out!


Nadia Minkoff

Nadia Minkoff wasn’t a new discovery for me, I’d been lusting after the Cut Glass Skull earrings (£49.50) for ages. But having previously had my ears stretched to 12mm, stud style earrings aren’t ideal for me. I did have a lovely chat with Nadia at the event though, and I’m hoping to get a customised pair made to make them wearable for me. Fingers crossed!

The skull range is absolute perfection in my opinion, and it fits my personal style perfectly – a grown up, more polished version of an emo kid! Winter 2015 has brought similar crystal skulls to the range. I want all the pieces in every colour!

Nadia also offers more classic styles, as well as beautiful bags.

Nadia was very generous at the event, gifting bloggers beautiful drop earrings and cute, quirky necklaces. Thank you Nadia!


Halo Hair Extensions

I’ve been wanting to try extensions for a while now, and Halo are a company that I had looked at for their innovative design. So when I saw them in the gifting lounge I was very excited, and was overjoyed to be able to take away with me my very own 16″ Halo in shade Light Blonde (RRP £99.99).

If you aren’t familiar with the Halo, it’s an easy to apply set of 100% Indian Remy human hair extensions attached to an invisible wire, headband style. You simply pop it on the crown of your head, cover the wire and join by arranging your natural hair on top and that’s it! After seeing them in real life I was so impressed, and my long hair made me feel like a princess!

Since I tone my hair, I have to do the same with my Halo before putting it to proper use, so expect a proper post on it very soon!

Here’s a very blurry selfie of myself and SJ from the night in Halo hair. Please bear in mind my extensions aren’t yet an exact match colourwise!


Gallardo & Blaine Designs

I am so glad that I had the opportunity to view Gallardo & Blaine hand crafted pieces in real life, as they are so much more beautiful than they appear online! The jewellery is handmade in the UK, using a mixture of silver and gold plate, and stones handpicked by Madelaine Gallardo from her travels.

I was particularly captivated by the rings. On my hand you can see (left to right) a Heartbeat Ring (from £32 dependent on stone), a Whirlpool Ring (from £85 dependent on stone – mine is Mystic Topaz) and a Tempest Ring (from £56 dependent on stone).

Gallardo & Blaine very kindly gifted jewellery to bloggers, for which I am very grateful! Now I’m seriously lusting after the £230 Whirlpool Ring in Opal!


As you can tell, a lot of the brands were very generous, and I picked up a lot of items which I will be trying out. I’ll be sure to post about the things I love! What I enjoyed most about the event though wasn’t the gifting, it was the opportunity to meet and network with other bloggers.

I’d love to hear from other bloggers who attended. If anyone posted about the event please feel free to link it in the comments, as I’d love to have a read!

I’ll be honest, when I first heard about Supper Tub back in June, I was sceptical. Surely hot tubs and food aren’t the most hygienic of combinations? But I was pleasantly surprised.

The concept is simple. Gorgeous wood fired hot tubs for up to eight people, with ‘tub service’ providing Peruvian tapas and cocktails straight to the tubs.


My friends and I spent two hours in one of their three wooden tubs on a sunny Saturday afternoon in July. Located canalside in Hackney Wick, behind Number 90 Bar, the setting was tranquil with lovely views. The perfect location to just chill out and relax in the warm water.

The food was excellent. I tried halloumi and watermelon salad skewers dressed with minted oil (which were so good I had seconds!), priced at £3.50, and organic British rump steak marinated with pisco and herbs, scorched in the grill and drizzled with lime and herb oil, priced at £4.50.


Drinks were provided by Number 90 Bar, and were well priced. The selection on the Supper Tub menu was limited (with no non alcoholic options!) but they were more than happy for you to order off menu.

Supper Tub was originally only supposed to last a month from it’s opening in July, but has been so popular it’s now selling slots for September! Slots are generally two hours long and are usually priced at £20-25 per person or £120-150 for a whole tub for eight people. They’re often hosting special events with special pricing (such as the innovative hot tub roulette at £10 for a one hour slot, hopping from tub to tub) which are well worth doing.


Oh, and did I mention the rubber ducks and water pistols?!
