July Favourites

6 Aug

Hello lovely readers!

Apologies for the lack of blogging this week. I’ve been really busy, mainly organising my trip to South East Asia later this month (exciting!) – will post more about that soon.

So here’s a bit of a belated product review day vlog, my July favourites! I did film it in July but only just got round to editing it!

What were your July favourites? Have you tried any of the Herbal Essences products and loved/hated them? I’d love to know, LDNshopaholic xxx

Lovely Dove

21 Jul

Here’s my review of some of Dove’s latest products from the TOWIB event in (HD!) vlog form. I thought it was easiest to talk through and show you my likes and dislikes. Be warned… there is a mass of tangled hair which makes an appearance in this one, as well as my QVC sales person alter ego!

Thanks for watching 🙂

The Only Way Is Blogging

21 Jul

On Saturday I went along to the first TOWIB (The Only Way is Blogging) event with the lovely Lauren from Beauty Notes. Event organiser, London Beauty Queen, did a really good job of sorting out the plan for the day and the schedule ran from 12-5. As soon as we entered the venue, we were invited to take a look at MUA’s new professional collection (product review blog post and vlog still to come). We were very impressed with the range, particularly the eyeshadow palettes which are a bargain just ÂŁ4.

We then mingled and had a good old chat about all things blogging and beauty, it was really lovely to meet so many like-minded people. We were then talked through the collection and shown three make up looks. Firstly, Sabrina from A Little Obsessed (wearing a fab skirt may I add!) was given a strong lip and neutral eye by make up artist Katie Hughes:

Whilst Sophie from Sophie is Make Up had a lovely smokey eye look (photo courtesy of Super Gorgeous):

And finally, Natalie from Blush Blend Beauty was given a bright eye look (photo courtesy of Super Gorgeous):

Lauren and I then proceeded to munch on some rather yummy potato skins, soon after which we were given a science and technology lesson in all things Dove (photo courtesy of Super Gorgeous):

There’ll be Dove product review vlog coming later on today, where I’ll be telling you about the Dove products I’m loving and one that I’m definitely NOT loving!

We were then lucky enough to have a Q&A session with British Beauty Blogger, Really Ree and London Beauty Queen (L-R):

It was great to hear them talk from their own experiences, knowing that they started out just like us. It’s really amazing how in a few short years blogging can really change people’s lives/careers. Jane (British Beauty Blogger) now has 100,000 hits a month, Ree (Really Ree) is Hello Magazine’s official blogger writing ‘Attempts at a Stylish Life’ and Hayley (London Beauty Queen) has forged herself a career bringing brands and bloggers together.

Ree then told us about her favourite new tanning product ‘Lauren’s Way’ endorsed by none other than Lauren Goodger from The Only Way is Essex! I can’t wait to try it out, and the review will follow soon after so keep an eye out.

It was such a fabulous event, and I met so many lovely bloggers. Hopefully we’ll all see each other again at the next TOWIB event on 15 October (do come along if you’re a fellow blogger). I’d like to say a HUGE thanks to London Beauty Queen for organising it.
