Quiz Lost in Summer Party

As time goes on in my pregnancy, I’m having to be very strict about which events I attend. Days spent rushing around London to get to five press meetings in one day are now a thing of the past. But when this invite came through my door, I was definitely going! Celebrating the relaunch of their Westfield Stratford store, here is what happened at the Quiz Lost in Summer Party.

Quiz were amazing to send out pieces from their new collection inspired by all things summer to their guests so we could wear and share on the night of the party. The dress I’m wearing is the Stone Bardot Double Frill Bodycon (now on sale for just £14.99) and it fit bump and I perfectly!

I always love seeing a sexy shoe display! There are so many shoes I’m loving from Quiz this season.

My hand is always on my lower back these days! You can see the Braid Bar behind me doing their magic on the press and bloggers. The drinks bar sorted out a wonderful mocktail for me!

My eyes caught this cute suede clutch (above) on display at the Quiz Lost in Summer Party- imagine this with matching suede mules!!!

I spy my ‘Paularazzi!’ doing a great job as always.

Live models were on display throughout the night in the shop window. Looking super fresh in the new Lost in Summer collection!

We had the lovely Amber Turner from TOWIE cut the ribbon to the newly opened store. After the cheers subsided, we all piled back into the store for more fun, drinks and shopping!

Thank you so much to Quiz for a memorable summer night! Shop the whole Lost in Summer range here as well as Occasion Dresses.

Thanks for reading Quiz Lost in Summer Party, head over to my latest post on a brand new hotel opening in London for another party post!

Say hello, at the Moxy hotel London Excel

I’m not sure if you are aware, but when Paul and I moved to London in 2014, we moved to an area called Newham- Canning Town to be more specific. This is a stone’s throw away from the ExCel Centre and London City Airport- very handy! As we lived there we watched the area being built up around us. We were in one block of newly built flats, but the area continued to expand and this included around the Royal Victoria Docks too (which is where the Moxy Hotel comes in). The Moxy hotel, part of the Marriott Group, has just opened its doors and I was so excited to be one of the first to head down there to see it. After all, I had watched it come along week by week until this May- and it’s finally ready to say hello!

You can’t miss this modern place with bright pink logo on the front of the building. It has 164 brand new rooms ready and waiting. The Moxy Hotel is pet friendly and most importantly there’s free wifi! This, much like the rest of the Moxy hotels around the world, have a very unique concept about them. They want guests to feel so at home in their hotels that they operate on a ‘DIY’ basis. Help yourself to drinks and snacks on offer 24/7, how cool is that?!

It’s a really casual space with great little touches everywhere you go.

The press and bloggers had more than a night’s worth of entertainment. Weird but fabulous displays, an alien chick, plus nearly naked waiters to serve the food and drinks throughout the night too! If you didn’t see my Snapchat from the party then I’m sorry you missed that!

The rooms upstairs were also decked out for us. One room had been turned into a Karaoke bar, another had a tattoo artist on hand doing actual tattoos for the guests! I’ve never experienced anything quite like this before, and I hope you will check out where you can check into your nearest Moxy Hotel  for your next venture!

Keeping it Sassy with Spectrum Collections

I had the pleasure of attending a very exclusive event last month, and I had been wanting to check these guys out for a while after the social craze going on with their collections. Spectrum Brushes hosted a fantastic launch party for their brand new range- The Bomb Shell by Chloe Lloyd and it was amazing! I had met a new blogger friend (as I always do) earlier on that day, and so we went together to the venue in Soho. Her blog is HelloMissJordan and you must check out her blog after you’ve finished this post! Here’s how we were keeping it sassy with Spectrum Collections

The vibe of the whole event was mermaid, so bloggers were arriving with the most fabulous hair colours and dressed to impress. Jordan and I went for purple and pink!

So now I’m going to show you some of the wonderful brushes on display from the new Bomb Shell collection, and in case you don’t know much about Spectrum Collections all their brushes are cruelty free and vegan friendly!

How beautiful are these brushes? The have pink handles with rose gold detail. This setup gave me some serious inspo as to how I’m going to be displaying my brushes from now on! Any recommendations for rose gold cups like this leave me a comment below! And now onto the piece de resistance, the one you’ve all been waiting for:

eee! This Bomb Shell drops in September 2016!

Now it wouldn’t be a complete blog post without sharing with you the amazing display of food from the Spectrum launch. I would describe it as a feast fit for a unicorn and a mermaid tea party- just look at all of it!

Everything sparkled and looked so gorgeous! Of course no donuts or cupcakes for the coeliac, but I certainly enjoyed the clam macarons and the pearly merringues! So there’s one more thing I’d like to show you, and this is the pure definition of keeping it sassy with spectrum collections. We met a very talented artist who goes by the name of DOM & INK. He was fabulous and turned both Jordan and I into mermaids!

We definitely channelled our inner Disney princesses for these!

I had such an amazing time and want to thank Spectrum and Avant PR for hosting such a magical launch party, I cannot wait to trial the brushes out!
