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.
Over the past few months I have been making quite a few purchases in the beauty department. I have been loving just having a browse around the shops and picking up new and interesting pieces I haven’t seen before.
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.
As some of you may know, after 3 years, I have decided go back to college and I will be starting next week to follow my dream of going into healthcare OH MY GOD, I’M BACK IN EDUCATION! The funny thing is I never really enjoyed college the first time around, I mainly just liked the social aspect. However I am seriously excited to start learning again, I’m not sure why exactly as I think a few months down line I’ll be crying ‘WHHYYY, why did I do this to myself’. Perhaps it’s because I am doing something completely different and it feels like a fresh start. Who knows? But Monday can’t come quick enough.
Recently there’s been a lot of talk about NYX products, now that they are readily available in boots stores and online. I thought I’d try out three of their lip products and do a review to compare them.
I swear Spectrum blew up overnight. One minute I was browsing through their website thinking ‘Wow these look amazing, why haven’t heard of them before’. Then the next, every blogger and their mum were raving about them. I even saw loads of bloggers tweeting about an event. However I was lucky enough to be given a discount code to get my hands on some.
I decided to purchase two brushes I really needed. An eye defining brush and a contour brush. The two I picked up are; Contour Queen & Draw Me Pretty.
