Forever Living Light Up Mirror Lipgloss

I recently tried out an amazing new lip gloss from Forever Living, not only was the quality of the product brilliant, but the built in light and mirror makes the product every girls dream.

I found that having the mirror and light attached to the lip gloss made it easier for me to apply the pink glittery gloss. The product is perfect to use anytime and anywhere which is perfect to take on a night out with you, or if you spend a lot of time travelling.

I decided to test out the product for a night out with my friends and I was pleasantly surprised! You only have to use a little of the product in order to gain a pigmented and glossy look which I loved! I also didn’t have to spend my evening re-applying this gloss which made me enjoy wearing it even more.

If you’re looking for a lip gloss which is non-sticky and long lasting then I definitely recommend you try out this product. I have included the links below for you to have a look for yourself!
Hope you enjoy x

Marks and Spencer Blogging Party

I was recently invited to join several other bloggers at the M&S Blogging Party in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol. The event followed the Bristol Fashion Week Show which you can find my review on here.

As we arrived at the event we were greeted by some lovely ladies who worked for M&S, they made us all feel very welcome and explained to us a little bit about their Spring/Summer range. We were then allowed to have a sneak peak at their upcoming Spring range which featured some lovely floral prints which I will definitely be keeping an eye out for!

As we were walking around we also had a chance to try some of their products which would be perfect for a summers BBQ or picnic. My favourite was the Rocky Road Cupcakes, along with the Mojito Juice Drink which is perfect with or without the rum. These refreshments were the perfect snack to enjoy whilst looking at all of the wonderful products M&S had to offer.

Once we had finished looking around, we were offered a complimentary hand massage and manicure at the nail bar which was the perfect way to finish off the event. After my nails were dry and I was fully pampered it was time to leave, but the lovely women at M&S made sure we didn’t go home empty handed. We were all treated with a luxury M&S goody bag which featured many skincare and makeup products.

I had an amazing time at the event and I am so grateful to M&S for having us.
I can’t wait to see what my next blogging event brings!

Bristol Fashion Week Event

Last night I was lucky enough to receive a bloggers pass which allowed me to attend the Bristol Fashion Week Event at The Mall in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol. The event was hosted by Denise Van Outen and Mark Heyes, who certainly made the event one to remember!
I had an amazing night and I definitely recommend you bag yourself a ticket and enjoy one of the last few shows!

On arrival we were greeted with raffle tickets, along with treats for Krispy Kreme and traditional lemonade and fondant fancies from M&S. The waiting area was decorated with a wonderful Spring garden theme and these tasty treats made brilliant snacks throughout the show!

We were lucky enough to be able to sit near the front which allowed me to have a perfect view of the catwalk, along with the glamorous outfits and models displayed on it. The catwalk featured many Spring/Summer themes including florals, colour bursts, short and sassy, street styles and many more. All of the outfits were amazing, but the brands which stood out to me the most were Coast, Warehouse, New Look, River Island, Karen Millen and Marks & Spencer. 

Whilst watching the finale, we were each gifted with an amazing goody bag which featured many products including a No 7 Mascara, a box of Perfectil Skin, Hair and Nails Vitamins, along with luscious hand creams and skincare products. This was a lovely surprise and I cannot wait to review these beautiful products.

My Tanning Favourites!

Spring is here, which means that Summer is right around the corner. The first thing I think of when I picture summer is being tanned – but if you don’t have a holiday planned then you might need a little help.

I personally hate the orange skin look, so it’s important for me to choose the right tan for my skin tone in order to keep it looking natural. Here are my four favourite tanning products – I hope you enjoy!

Most of you probably already know how important it is to exfoliate your skin before tanning in order to create an even toned look. But what I find even more helpful is using a product such as St Tropez Tan Enhancing Polish, which helps even out your skin tone, along with ensuring your tan lasts as long as possible. I would definitely recommend you use this product before tanning and I guarantee you will see a difference!

If you’re new to tanning I recommend  you try a product such as Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion. I use this product in the shade Light as I feel that it comes out dark enough for my skin colour in this shade. The product is very easy to apply as you can use your hands and apply it just as you would a normal moisturiser. One thing I adore about this product is the apricot scent which is left on your skin. If you don’t usually tan and fancy trying it out I would definitely recommend using this gradual tan.

This product is my all time favourite. The St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse is my go to tan when I want a sun kissed look. This tan pumps out into a foam which is best applied with a tanning mit. One thing I love about this product is that you are able to see where you are applying it, which allows you to create a perfectly even tan. This product is a bit pricey compared to other tans but it definitely lasts a lot longer than any other tanning product I have tried. If you fancy treating yourself to a luxury tan, I would definitely recommend you pick this one up.

Last but not least is the Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion. This product is similar to the Garnier Gradual Tan, but the texture is slightly less shimmery. I have always loved this product as it is perfect for a quick fix if you don’t have time to tan properly. I usually apply this product before I go to  bed, which allows me to wake up with a natural looking tan. This product is generally the cheapest out of the four mentioned, so if you’re looking for a quick and easy fix, this would be the right one for you.

Which tanning products do you use and what would you recommend I try next?

Lan LLofft Fashion Blogging Event Cardiff

 

This weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to a fashion blogger event at Lan LLofft in CardiffLan Llofft is a Welsh Boutique which has shops in Cardiff, Machynlleth and Lampeter. The lovely boutique  features brands such as French Connection, Sugarhill, Darling, Great Plains and many more!

When I arrived at the event I was greeted by three lovely ladies who work in Lan Llofft in Cardiff and they immediately made me feel welcome. The shop itself was filled with lovely spring colours and many outfits stood out for me due to their cute floral patterns.

Once everybody had arrived, we were told that if we wanted to we could put together an outfit to try on and have our photograph taken in order to gain a chance at winning the outfit later on in the event. Of course I jumped at the chance and decided to go for a beautiful kimono paired with some amazing lilac heels and a lovely white clutch.
Here is the photograph taken of me in my chosen outfit:

After we had a chance at playing dress up we had a chance to get to know the women hosting the event and learn a little bit about the company. I was so pleased to find that everyone attending the event was so friendly and the day truly was wonderful!

After stuffing our faces with the refreshments they had kindly offered us, Bethan (a lovely woman who organised the event) presented us with goody bags to take home. I was so pleased to find that my bag included a stunning gold necklace, along with a blue and purple floral scarf which I will definitely be wearing this spring. I was also given a lovely tote bag and a discount code which will be perfect for my next shop at this wonderful boutique.

 

I am so happy to have found this boutique as both the staff and the clothes they stock are amazing!

If you’re shopping in Cardiff or in any of the other towns mentioned then I would definitely recommend you check this shop out!
