#EVENT | Blogger Hangout event - Strand Gallery




My second attendance to a Bloggers Hangout event! (read about my first one here) Held at the Strand Gallery in London, which was a tight squeeze for the huge turn out of bloggers! So much so that is was so hot and sticky inside but i didnt let that put a dampener on the event. It was full of fantastic brands some new and some i have heard of before. All im saying is thank god for Cocktail Mania , those girls saved all our blogger needs with the tastiest (alcohol) slushies! ;)

I went and spoke to the lovely people at Pink Parcel first and was so impressed by their concept. I had heard of them before but i never really did too much research. Basically they are a sub box (i love a good sub box) for your time of the month. They have lots of bits and bobs to help cheer you up like makeup, chocolate and skin care and also the essentials like pads or tampons and a tea sachet that is soothing to your monthly cramps! For £10.50 inc p&p each month you cant really go wrong ( first box is usually £6.99) but use code PINK16 to get your first box for £5.


We got to pick from a selection of items what we wanted to take away in our little mini pink parcel boxes and here is what i picked! One thing that i need aroun my period is serious spot control, like i eat so much chocolate and my hormones are throught the roof so i picked the clean and clear spot control moisturiser which im hoping will help a gal out. You get a sweet treat and a tea in every box anyway, these both looked and smelt yummy.The makeup bits are amazing high end brands and also some of my faves! I really urge everyone to check it out because if anything it will really cheer you up when you most need it! 



O M G . Sass & Belle I love this brand. I will shout it from the roof tops!! I am a serious obsessive of staionary, nik-naks, cute things. They genuinely bring me joy. This whole brand just encapsulates that. The stuff that they have is just so stunning. The glass is now my most used glass haha! Visit the website and you will see what i mean and why i cant get my words out. Its like an IKEA for bloggers! With things like wall art, LED lights, pads, trinket dishes and lots and lots of copper things (a blogger craze) I love the little whale bag, i mean i hate carrying bags around with me - we have to now cos otherwise its 5p every bag!! ugh, so this fold out bag has made me life so much easier. I dont have a gazillion bags inside my tiny handbag taking up all the room now because this little whale is here:) as soon a i need a bag i just un roll him! 

One last thing i must tell you about, im aware im rambling on and making this post so long ha but i must give you all the good stuff! I have never used nail wraps EVER in my life, and for some reason i just had the attitude that nope, im never going to try them. But now my nail game has changed. I tried these wraps from Dinki Belle out ( i wanted the marble ones so bad but they was all gone :s waa!) i am so impressed. It literally took me like 5 minutes to put them on, no stress no struggle, no skin painted, no spillages! I didnt have to do the helpless hand flap either cos i didnt have to wait for them to dry!
 Im not saying im not going to not use polish again but if i want such a funky or specific design i now know where to buy them from. I just adore them so much and im actually pretty mad that i never tried them before haa i cannot wait for the new range to come out! There is talk of sugar skulls *heart stops* and chritmas -sparkles. EEP!


Will you try out any of these brands?

#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
