The Body Shop Reading Blogger Event

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to my local Body Shop for their VIP Blogger Event. A collection of local bloggers and influencers were gathered in the Oracle, Reading branch to celebrate the launch of of a handful of gorgeous new products for summer. The Body Shop is the home of my favourite beauty staples (their make up brushes, the The Tea Tree 3-in-1 Wash Scrub Mask, Aloe Soothing Moisturise Lotion, a facial SPF & the Chamomile Cleansing Butter, a makeup remover that removes even the most stubborn of waterproof mascaras) and I was excited to hear about their new arrivals.

Bad Egg Bottomless Brunch Review

Growing up, I wasn't a massive breakfast fan, it was something I could take or leave. But as I've grown older and therefore wiser, it's something I've learnt to appreciate. Eating out for breakfast is now common place and not something I've done much of and with the surging popularity of bottomless brunches, it was time for me to try one out for myself. On our family outing to SpiceUp the Exhibition, we booked in to nearby diner, Bad Egg.

SpiceUp London - An Exhibition About The Spice Girls

This weekend, my sisters and I got up bright & early & ventured to the Business Design Centre in Angel Islington for the opening day of the new exhibition there, SpiceUp London. Created by Spice Girls lover, Alan Smith-Allison, the exhibition showcases the incredible collections of 12 super-fan collections including original Spice Girl outfits and merchandise collected over the last 20 years. Smith-Allison grew up in a small town in Scotland and struggled with coming out as gay but identified with the Spice Girls and their message of embracing who you are. He has spent in the region of £200,000 on collecting memorabilia. Items in the exhibition also belong to Liz West, the Guinness World Record holder for the largest Spice Girl memorabilia collection.

Huda #FauxFilter Foundation Review

I have championed Kat Von D Lock It Foundation for 2 years now and you can find out why here. However, as a makeup enthusiast, it's kind of unheard of to stick with something for that long without trialling something new. In my attempt to find another foundation I like, I colour matched myself for the Huda Faux Filter Foundation on a trip to Selfridges. I tend not to buy foundations without trialling them for a couple of wears but as this is a product that is popular, I took the risk and ordered it online via Cultbeauty. I've written and re-written this three times because I couldn't decide if I liked it or not - keep reading to find out my final verdict.

Winter Lights Festival 2018

Last weekend, Juan took me to London and following seeing Sarah of Sarah Kirby Blog post about it on Instagram, we decided to check out the Winter Lights festival, a collection of art installations spotted all over Canary Wharf with, as the name suggests, a focus on light. With 33 separate sculptures and interactive art pieces to find, it's like a neon treasure hunt and we had some serious exploring to do. Keep reading to check out my photos of this visual spectacular!
