New Body Care Products on Trial

New Body Care Products on Trial

Over the past couple of weeks I've had the opportunity of coming across a couple of new brands along with adding quite a few new products to my body and hair care routines. So after trailing everything out, I wanted to put together a post to share with you some of these new products and my thoughts on them so far. I also wanted to quickly say a huge thank you to Scarlett (from Scarlett London Events) for putting together a fantastic #BloggersFestival event, where I got to meet some of the brands I will be talking about today. As always Scarlett put a lot of effort into organising the event and I'm sure that everyone who attended had a fanatic time. I personally got to meet new brands, as well as new bloggers and not forgetting saying hi to familiar faces too. So all in all it was a great bloggers day out... But back to today's blog post as I tell you all about my new beauty findings.

Less is more with AVÈNE TOLÉRANCE EXTRÊME

You might have remembered my initial post a little while back (almost a month ago but you can still read it here) where I introduced you to the newly re-vamped Avène Tolérance EXTRÊME range* and told you all about my initial thoughts on the range. I also mentioned that I was on an exclusive trial with the brand & this particular range for 3 weeks. Well the trial has now come to an end, in fact I've stuck with this skincare routine since mid July... so that's got to be saying something. Cutting back my skincare regime to the basics such as cleanser, moisturiser, mask and that's pretty much it, wasn't as easy as it may sound.

Boohoo Blogger Dress of the Month

Boohoo Blogger Dress of the Month

It's safe to say that at the young *ahem* age of 29 I have found a fashion style that I am comfortable with and pretty much stick to that on a regular basis. From time to time I might adapt certain trends into my usual style (like this year's off the shoulder craze), but I never steer to far away from my comfort zone. I basically know what I like, what suits my shape and what I feel confident in. So when Boohoo challenged me to take on their Blogger X Dress of the Month project for September, I was a bit hesitant and scared, but excited at the thought so I just bit my lip & agreed to take part. This challenge from Boohoo involves a couple of bloggers being sent out the exact same dress, without knowing any details about it at first (such as the style or how it looks)... it's then up to the blogger to style it their own way. As you can see from the photos this month's dress is the Amanda Floral Printed Maxi Shirt Dress*, which is bloody gorgeous but is it something I would have picked out myself? Probably not as I'm not too daring when it comes to side splits in a dress and looking at this online it's just not something I would imagine myself wearing. 

Autumn Essentials featuring Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Couture

Autumn Essentials featuring Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Couture

Can you believe summer is actually over and we're already mid September. London hasn't exactly got the message about Autumn arriving yet, since the heat & humidity is still going strong. At this point I'm actually looking forward to the weather cooling down a bit so I can enjoy everything that Autumn brings. With that in mind I decided to put together a list of my Autumn essentials, including a brand new fragrance from Viktor & Rolf. That's right the creators behind the ever so popular Bonbon & Flowerbomb scents, have released a new scent to add to their collection. Meet  Bonbon Couture* which is officially released on the 14th of September (yup that's tomorrow and you can find it in Selfridges Beauty)

Radiant Skin & Statement Lips for Autumn

Radiant Skin & Statement Lips for Autumn

As I mentioned last week I recently attended a few beauty events with one of them being the Seventeen Blogger Network event. I have tried the brand in the past & I've been part of their blogger network for quite some time now. Anyone can join the network and it's a fantastic platform for bloggers to not only stay connect with the brand & their new releases, but also a great way to connect with other bloggers, as well as being able to see what they are recommending etc. I loved being able to visit Seventeen UK offices in central London, such a beautiful place (definitely a bloggers dream) and it was perfectly set up for an evening of fun & beauty.
