Last week I was invited to Cardiff, to the first Spectrum Collections event, in Wales! If any of you don’t know, Spectrum Collections is a Welsh based brand, created by the lovely Sophie and Hannah Pycroft and it was great for them to have an event in their home country.
The evening began with pink prosecco, sweeties from candy kittens and mingling with all the bloggers. The room looked amazing, decorated with beautiful flower arrangements from Urban Flower Studio.
The event mainly consisted of us sat watching a live makeup demo. The tutorial was to show case Spectrum’s new 35 piece brush set. For me personally, the tutorial took too long and when sat far away we couldn’t actually see what was going on. It would have helped if it was also shown on the big screen behind them. The makeup demo itself was good and from the questions asked, some interesting beauty information was gained.
The rest of the evening consisted of a vegan buffet from Milgi and unicorn cocktails from Dirty Martini.
Look how pretty their brushes are!
A huge thank to Spectrum Collections for hosting the event!
Last week I was invited back, with Johny to FeD Cardiff to try their new chef special menu.
If you don’t know who Fed are they are a ‘Food Exploration Destination‘. A restaurant were you can have dishes from a wide range of cuisines including; Chinese, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Tex-Mex and Grill.
What a year, It’s had up’s and downs but I got through it. I had some lovely adventures with my blogging friends, including Bluestone and a trip to London. I also got to visit some amazing places with Johny, such as St David’s cathedral, Carew’s Castle and the Isle of Wight. I faced a fear – holding a snake. I bought a car and past my driving test. Both Johny and I had surgery on the same day. I started the Access to Healthcare course. I got a new job. But most importantly spent loads of time with my family. Here’s just some of my pictures from 2016.
When I heard that the lovely Katie was organising a blogger event for the new Kiehl’s Cardiff store, I knew I had to go! Kiehl’s has always been a brand I have been longing to try but never had the chance to as there were no counters near where I live. I’d continuously hear the songs and praises from people using their products and was really intrigued to learn what knowledge of skincare they had.
On Thursday I was lucky enough to attend Lush Swansea’s first blogger event! The event was based around the new Christmas collection and I got to experience it all with the blogging babes; Neesha, Ffion, Charlee and Holly, as well as new blogger Leanne and even Johny came too, now that he is addicted to Lush. I also got to have a quick catch up with Katie, who I hadn’t seen properly for 3 years, so that was nice.
Boots have launched a new wonderful thing called the ‘Beauty Emporium’. It is heaven for all us beauty addicts and such a fab idea to see and try all the new beauty lines. The Beauty Emporium is a new set up in boots where on a weekly basis they will be promoting different brands and offering tips and tricks of the latest trends.
Boots kindly invited me to attend their Swansea opening event and have a look around the emporium. I decided to take my mum with me and have a girly mother and daughter evening.
