#EVENT | Barry M A/W collection

I recently got invited to the Barry M cosmetics Autumn/Winter collection event which was held at the London Bridge experience. This was my first ever event as a blogger and i had no idea what to expect! I had so many feelings, those quite similar to the ones i get when i go to interviews lol. The strongest feeling was just nerves like we all get when we do something we have never done before.
The location was so on point and such a suprise, it was like the London Dungeons with cobwebs, spooky smells and sounds and waiters dressed as zombies and dead brides!

I must say i didnt mingle too much just as it was a new experience and i was taking it all in! We got offered some of the sparkly stuff on arrival and lots of tasty food and sweet sweet music. There was a few tables which had some nail treatments going on, which was cool and the new collection was set up so you can have a sneak peek. I didnt stay as long as i liked just due to plans i had the next day and of course work *yawn* but i did get a bag of goodies with some of the collection in so i want to let you know my thoughts on them here :) just would like to say thank you to Barry M for putting the event on and creating a great atmosphere and making me feel welcome at my first ever event ♥






I loved the models and pigs head haha anything like this is right up my street so i was so happy when i saw them.





Im a huge fan of Barry M nail varnishes anyway, i have over 10 already so im glad i got a few more to add to my collection, these ones are all quite dark, with just tints of red, blue, purple and green. Perfect for halloween and of course autumn and winter! Will be my go to varnishes for the next few months. The blush and contour palette is perfect, i love the highlighter shade in it and i do like the bronze shade but that also has shimmer in it and i dont really like shimmer in my bronzer. The eyeshadow palette is a blend of the perfect colours and the pink/champagne colour is brilliant for a highlighter and it made my cheeks pop! Im not over keen on the lip palette, the colours are not very bright and nor do they blend on the lips well.

The pump highlighter is by far my fave of what i saw of the collection, it really makes light hit all the areas you put it on and is long wearing, i wore it to a TV studio with all bright lights and it was still bright and didnt wear off.

All the collection is avaliable exclusively at Superdrug and is in stores at Boots from Sept 30th onwards.

Much love,

Sarah

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin! These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel . The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of hone

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it. Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club. Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn. I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours o
