I’ve been pretty quiet on social media this past week, mostly because I’ve been enjoying some well-deserved down time!
I always find the period in between Christmas and New Year weird because I always lose track of days and dates!! So what exactly did I get up to?
Rather than doing a December favourites, I thought I’d do a general round-up of my year and share some of the lovely things that happened to me in 2016 (most of them blog-related!) 🙂
I recently wrote a post about my current skincare regime; which are products I use every day and love. But there are some other products that I’ve also been using regularly that I love just as much and serve as equally important a purpose.
I’m talking about products for banishing blackheads. Big, stupid, ruin your face blackheads.
We’re one day away from December. This is not a drill. Party season is pretty much here; those awkward office parties where someone snogs Tim from accounts, the New Year’s Eve parties that are exactly the same every year but you go anyway in the hopes that this year will be different and you won’t end up in the kebab shop where all the staff know your name and you only seem to be wearing one shoe.
Wherever you’re going this festive season, my five must-have party products will get you looking and feeling your best. Even if it does rain and Sandra from HR throws up in the new expensive bag you got for Christmas.
Last weekend the We Are Thirty Plus group were all invited up to the Smashbox* Headquarters in London to check out their new lipstick range; Be Legendary which boasts an astounding 120 different shades to choose from!
I went up with Áine (who made a vlog about it and I feature in it, so worth checking out just for that. I honestly wish she’d learn to film my best side though!)
Back in June, the lovely Charlotte (Just Charlotte) ran a Twitter competition to win a £50 Feel Unique voucher, which I won. No surprise to anyone who knows me; I’m a lucky raffle/Twitter competition winner 😀
Well that was a rollercoaster of excitement, food, alcohol, excitement, more food, friends, laughter and goodies!
On Thursday 25th August, I travelled from Brighton to Manchester with Jess (from Jess and Josh Cook) for the first official Girl Gang event, organised by Jemma (Dorkface).
I can definitely believe that August is nearly over. There’s now a chill in the air and the leaves are turning brown and falling from the trees. What I can’t believe is that I managed to do this while it was still August!
When the lovely Fliss at Fresh Naturals got in touch to offer me a couple of her sample products, I thought she was going to send just that. One, maybe two things. Instead she sent a whole array and I’ve been spending the last six weeks trying everything out. And I still have loads left!
If you read my Big Blogger Expo post, you’ll have seen me mention that I won one of the raffle prizes; a Heaven Skincare set from Deborah Mitchell. I also said I’d share exactly what I’d won in a post. So here it is!
