Back in February, I bought this contour kit from Collection but I only tried it once and then shoved it in my make-up drawer to gather dust. I decided I couldn’t get on with it and that I’d never learn how to use it properly; especially as I was using a blusher brush because I didn’t actually own a contour brush. Yeah, I know right? What kind of beauty blogger am I??
A couple of weeks ago, Aine (from Honestly Aine) and I were going to meet up for a coffee in Brighton; but then she said that Crownbrush were having a small event at the new Vanity X make-up academy and did I want to go that instead? So we hit London to check it out!
Honestly, sometimes I feel like I’m in one of those anonymous meetings; Hi, I’m Holly, I’m 31 and I absolutely love a lot of the Zoella beauty products. There; I’ve said it.
I’ve never done one of these before; mostly because at the end of the month, I never seem to have any empty products. Until now!
A couple of months ago I went to my first Brighton blog meet and in my goody bag were two samples of Mintycoco; the coconut oil-pulling formula with peppermint which is for “leaving your mouth feeling fresh, your teeth looking whiter and your gums healthy.” I decided to give it a go….
If you saw my Twitter feed a couple of weeks ago, you’ll know I was doing a nail wrap give-away courtesy of Dinkibelle* and they very kindly sent me a set of the Peacock nail wraps to try out for myself.
I recently won Rachel’s competition on Twitter to win a Mac lipstick and spent the next couple of hours in a total panic because I didn’t know which one to get!
I’ve just got home, I’m tired and hungry but I’m also really excited! Why? Because I’ve just spent time with the lovely Ellisha (SM Manager) and Emma (Visual Merchandising Manager) from Re:So ‘the first fully student-operated retail initiative’. In essence, the store is not only run and marketed solely by the students at Solent University in Southampton, but they also make and design all the products that are showcased in store!
So why am I writing this post and not chilling on the sofa stuffing my face with salmon and lemony, buttery, garlicy sauce? Because they’re only in Brighton until Sunday and honestly guys, you’ve gotta check them out!
I was suffering with migraines/headaches/dizziness last week and was feeling pretty sorry for myself; that is until a parcel arrived for me from Tillyanna* <3
I remember my mum taking me to The Body Shop when I was a child; I remember their dolphin bath pearls, the shimmery gold pearls and the strawberry soaps. A lot has changed since then.
If you weren’t aware, The Body Shop hits the big 40 this year and I received an invite to help celebrate their 40th birthday at their flagship store right here in Brighton!
