Solent University Conference Centre OOTN

If you saw Monday's post, you'll have seen that I attended the grand opening of the Solent University Conference Centre last week. I had a really fun evening, but one of the best bits for me was the opportunity to get all dressed up, and I thought I'd share my outfit for the night with you today.

Grand Opening of the Solent University Conference Centre

If you follow me on Instagram (you can find me here), you might have seen that last Thursday I attended the Grand Opening for the Solent University Conference Centre as a member of the SotonBloggers. I didn't go to university in my home town, but the opportunity to have a nosey round was too good an opportunity to pass up, especially as I got the chance to dress up and spend the evening with my favourite bloggers.

#SEVENTEENBloggerNetwork Event with Katie Snooks

Having the opportunity to meet with brands and other bloggers has always been something I've loved since starting my blog, so when the email invitation to an event with SEVENTEEN dropped into my inbox, I jumped at the chance. So last week, Anna and I jumped on a train, and made our way to London for an evening of makeup and blogging chat.

Current Skincare Saviours

We all know that I am not a skincare guru, or anything like that, but recently I have been trying to be kinder to my skin, and dip my toe into the skincare game. Much to my bestie Ashleigh's delight I'm sure - she loves a bit of skincare! I thought I'd share my current products with you, to share what I'm loving.

My Summer Scent - Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

You might have seen that back in March I guest posted for Alice about my favourite spring perfumes. Now, I've got a new favourite, so I thought I'd share my summer scent with you. I've had my eye on a new perfume for a while, and when the chance came to treat myself, I headed straight to John Lewis, and my local Chanel counter.

Space NK Haul

Being from Southampton, I don't get to visit Space NK as often as I like (although, the Winchester store has just opened, which is much more easily accessible). So, on a trip up to my old stomping ground of Guildford, who have a store, I had to pop in and see what I could come home with.

Lush Happy Daze

If you follow me on Instagram (you can find me here if you don't), you'll have seen that last month I left my job at my local hospital in preparation for my return to university. On my last day, the team were kind enough to send me off with some gifts, including this Lush Happy Daze gift box. They know me so well! I thought I'd share the contents on here today - we're all Lush fans here right?

Superdrug Haul

Now I'm definitely a Boots girl at heart, it's always been my drugstore of choice. But sometimes I just get that pull towards a Superdrug, and when I do, I tend to get spendy. Oops. I don't know if it's the different environment, or the slightly different range of brands and products, but I go in once and while and my purse comes out. That's what happened recently, so I thought I'd share what I picked up here today.

Bobbi Brown Retouching Face Pencils

You might have realised by now that I'm a big fan of Bobbi Brown makeup. Some of my first high-end purchases were Bobbi Brown items, and I am always looking for new products to try. An exciting release from the brand this month are the Retouching Face Pencils. I'd seen them online, and I'd become obsessed with watching BB Pro Artist Hannah (find her on Instagram here) posting about them. So, when the bestie Ash told me our local counter had them and that I would love them, I headed into town for a swatch... and a spend.

ghd Electric Pink

August 1st saw the launch of ghd's Electric Pink Collection in support of Breast Cancer research, and to celebrate I was invited along to my local ghd counter in John Lewis Southampton to meet with Kara and Katelin for a session about all things hair.

July Beauty Favourites

I haven't done a monthly favourites post in what seems like forever, but as I tried and tested a few new items this month, some of which I completely fell in love with, I thought I'd share some favourite products with you today.

July Instagram Roundup

Somehow, another month has come to an end, and we're officially into August. July was another busy one for me, with some events to go to, and me leaving my job for my new journey into teaching. I really enjoy these look-backs into my life, and hope you do too.

Kylie Lip Kit - Koko K

Anybody who's even remotely interested in the beauty world is aware of the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit hype. Arguably one of the most influential celebs of our generation (let's face it, her influence goes far and wide), you can see why and how much people love her and her lip kits. They've been slightly (okay, really) difficult to get hold of, and I've been envious of everyone who's tweeted or Instagrammed about getting one. But, one lucky evening I had my laptop, my phone on Snapchat and my debit card to hand when Kylie announced her latest launch, and I finally got one - hallelujah! Koko K is finally mine after months of yearning, and I thought I'd share it with you today!
