All Doved Up for a Change

So recently I have been rushed off my feet with hardly any time to slow down to even think about what I’m doing. What little time I do have outside of working hours I spend blogging and out and about in London at events. This is not a bad thing at all though, I love it and am so excited to start blogging full time as of next month! So I’m taking the leap and leaving my full time job, very scary indeed! I just can’t fit it all in anymore as hard as I try. This post is all about how I’ve partnered with Dove who keep me staying super fresh as I balance my everyday working life plus all the blogging in between! Here’s how I’m All Doved Up for a Change:

Dove has always been my go-to brand for an anti-perspirant, it works so well with my sensitive skin with 1/4 moisturiser in their deodorants. It also has the staying power I need in so many lovely scents. Right now I’m using the Dove original 48 hour protection spray in a compressed can, I love it so much!

So here’s where the day begins, I quickly spray, it’s in my bag and away I go to work and then onto 2 fabulous blogging events back to back! All Doved Up for a Change_-28
After my 8 hour office day, I’m heading stright for the Ham Yard Hotel. I am wearing a sleeveless co ord set from House of Celeb Boutique, my underarms are feeling smooth and great at 6pm still as I arrive at the Palmers coconut escape event.

The Coconut escape is fabulous, signature cocktails on a rooftop bar and this coconut oil formula collection on display had me wanting to stay forever. But, it was time to move onto the next event…
I arrive at the brand new LashBar store for 7.30pm. They have just opened up a Lash and Brow Bar, and I am so excited to see the new store.

Treatments are underway to celebrate the new opening as well as offering guests the chance to try out the new semi permanent lash extensions ‘Russian Varia’. I go for a classic look and have individual lashes placed at the ends of my eyeslashes. The staff are lovely and here is a shot I took of one of the guests having the Russian Varia lashes done: All Doved Up for a Change_-12

The time is now 8.30pm and I’m on my way home. It’s been an incredible (but busy day) and although I am so tired, I did not break a sweat all day thanks to Dove.
All Doved Up for a Change_-24
I’m definitely all Doved up for a change in my life, and now that I’m leaving my job to start blogging full time, plus the wedding planning, I hope that Dove will see me through for what’s to be an exciting adventure for the rest of 2016!

A Sweet Affair with RosieBea

So the day after I get back from Dubai, I am off out to an event. I actually didn’t get any jetlag from the plane, so I was up and ready to go for this wonderful sunny day. You may know the YouTube sensation MsRosieBea, she has over 200,000 subscribers and is only 18! She is a great inspiration and works really hard at what she does. It was no surprise that Elegant Touch and Eylure collaborated with her on this amazing new collection for Superdrug- and I want to tell you all about how it was such a sweet affair with RosieBea for her launch party.

The Loft at Lumiere London was so beautifully decorated, RosieBea’s collection of Elegant Touch Nails and Eylure Lashes were on display all around the space with spring flowers.

There was a huge cart full of sweet treats, chocolates and macarons which all had the sweet designs from Rosie which mirror all the different aspects of her personality. I love the colours and style of the new collection, it’s very fresh and different to anything else I’ve seen on nails before.

The drinks were perfectly coordinated with the spring theme- strawberry milkshakes, prosecco and strawberry lemonade!

Rosie gave a little talk and thanked us all for being there, she was so sweet!

I also saw my friend Vicki from VickisBeauty at the evet! Photo courtesy of Jasmine from Soeursdeluxe, who was also there for the event!

I’m wearing checkered jeans from Uniqlo and a crop from Boohoo.com.

I really loved the chilled out atmosphere as there weren’t a lot of bloggers there. It was great to take a look around at all the collections on display, and I even had my nails and lashes done too! I got the lashes in ‘Kitsch’ and the ‘Molten’ nails below!

I want to thank Eylure, Elegant Touch and of course the YouTuber herself for such a sweet affair with RosieBea- it was the perfect welcome back from holiday and and I can’t wait to try out some more from the range!

Are you caught up on the big news from my last post from The Dubai Series??

The Dubai Series: Day One

So you’ve read all about my travel preparations and essentials over the last few days, now I’m here with part three of The Dubai Series: Day One with the best beauty and fashion in the Middle East!

We landed at 7.30 in the morning so we had the whole day to enjoy as soon as we got there. We headed straight for the spa at the Dubai Polo Club!

Paul and I enjoyed Balinese massages which were so relaxing, all the stress of flying just disappeared along with the scents and sounds of the experience.

We spent the rest of the day chilling by the poolside, and had a light bite to eat with virgin pina coladas.

I had my Alpha-H factor 50 which kept me safe in the sun all afternoon.

For the evening, we were off to Maison Mathis to surprise our friend for their 40th birthday. They still didn’t know we were in the country! Here are the details of what I wore:

House of Holland by Eylure lashes were a must for this special occasion. I love the full lash effect that the ‘luffly’ lash gives, they made my eyes so mesmerising with the long, dark lashes.

Here’s the full outfit, I wore a gorgeous maxi skirt from House of Celeb Boutique and a neoprene crop from Boohoo.com.

I matched my cool blue theme with these stylish nail wraps from ThumbsUp Nails in style ‘Cleo’. They are so quick and easy to apply and will have your nails looking salon perfect in just ten mins! No dry time needed!

The Dubai Series- saharasplash-19

My bracelets are from the fabulous Corbico Jewellery. This is the 3-piece ‘Audrey Bracelet’ set which I absolutely adore, they look so glam without the high price tag and I wore them throughout the holiday. They are available right here from Corbico online, and the best part is that they are elasticated!

That’s it for The Dubai Series: Day One, stay tuned as tomorrow it’s Day Two with lots more fashion and accessories!

So Alex Silver PR kindly invited me along to their incredible party at the Haymarket Hotel to celebrate the launch of a brand new range of products from KISS and imPRESS nails. They also wanted to share the news on having a new celebrity brand ambassador, Leona Lewis. Leona was there on the night to have fun and party with all of us beauty addicts, she really is a perfect fit for the brand with her fun personality and incredible style.

The venue itself was stunning. The pool was all lit up and decorated with beautiful flowers, and there was a band on the night who were singing everything from Uptown Funk to classic Earth Wind and Fire. I made my way around all the tables to see all the new products on display-

I had my lashes done by one of the lash technicians and they are the best lashes I have worn. I am wearing ‘Lily’ and they felt so light like a feather, and they were easy to take off too when the night was over.
