brand spotlight - kiehl's skincare ♥

The Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a highly talked about skin care product in the blogging world. This little gem has been praised time and time again for its magic ability to create dewy, healthy skin. The Chelsea Flower Show began last week and as shops began to add flowers to the doors and windows, I was instantly drawn to Kiehl's store. Decorated head to toe with flowers, I made my way around the store and I thought this would make a lovely brand spotlight post. Before I began using Kiehl's I always heard such rave reviews about the brand, the Glamour beauty pages would be filled with products from the range and the although the packaging is simple, the product inside certainly does the talking.

skinny tan express mousse ♥

After officially returning home from Las Vegas, I am holding onto my tan for dear life. If you are looking to keep your tan or if you need to create one from scratch, this blog post will certainly be helpful. I recently reviewed the Skinny Tan and Tone oil and I wouldn't normally post about the same brand again this soon but I was so impressed with the new Skinny Tan Express Mousse* - I was really excited to talk about the brand again and I wanted to get this review on Fairytale Kiss straight away. I think we are always looking for products that think outside the box and actually create long lasting results and this is why Skinny Tan achieve time and time again.

#tiptalk - a helping hand ♥

Anyone that knows me, knows that I stress and worry. If you give me a to do list, I will hide under my table for as long as I can. I've seen so many people get engaged and the thought of planning a wedding makes me want to super glue myself to a desk forever. I completely get why people hire help and when I was contacted by Bidvine* to have a peek at their website and test it out, I literally felt a wave of relief wash over me. From cooking lessons to make-up courses, you can find help with pretty much anything. After you type in what sort of help you need, Bidvine finds out exactly what you want and they suggest the price, experience, location - everything you want the service to provide. Once you submit your job criteria, your request is sent off and specific professionals apply to help you. It really is as simple as that and I love how spoilt for choice you are.

#tiptalk - bikini shopping ♥

I am still feeling the full effects of jet lag right now but after returning from Las Vegas, I wanted to dive in with a blog post about bikini's. In particular, my favourite string bikini's. After spending quite a few months eating healthy and going to the gym, I felt confident enough to wear a string style bikini in Las Vegas, (you can actually read my diet and fitness post here) and I thought I would share my very extra tips on how I got ready for the pool party and show you a few bikini favourites from Rosegal.

my vegas gym & diet routine ♥

This time tomorrow I will officially be on the plane to Las Vegas. It feels like only yesterday that we booked the hen do but I'll be honest, I've tried very hard to get into shape for this trip. As I said in my body confidence post, I am all about embracing your figure and being happy with yourself but as soon as Las Vegas came closer and closer I still decided to make some healthy changes to my lifestyle. Seeing as my future camera is not up and ready yet, a Vegas blog series sounds like a good place to begin, starting with my diet and fitness regime, just in case anyone was interested. I thought it would be a nice idea to talk about how I've changed my diet and what my gym routine is. I am certainly not an expert so I wanted to write down what I've changed to feel more confident in my own skin.

the boohoo a/w event ♥

As well as attending the e.l.f. event on Thursday night, I also travelled to Carnaby Street to attend the Boohoo Autumn/Winter preview. I am a summer person 100% but I do love winter outfits, the boots, the faux fur coats and the dark, sequin outfits. I just love that you can be extra glamorous in the winter season and normally for the summer, I keep my outfits pretty simple - a fitted, plain dress and sandals. As I stepped into the Boohoo event however, I was instantly drawn to the mannequin displays, I love how Boohoo were able to create so many different looks with the mannequins and they certainly make great photos! I made my way around the room and I spotted a selection of items that stood out to me, including a pair of red boots.

the e.l.f. superdrug event ♥

Last night I headed to Soho on Greek Street to attend the highly anticipated e.l.f. launch. I was greeted with mini chicken burgers and Prosecco while I made my way upstairs. I have been to quite a few events this year but I have never seen so many people at one event before! It was such a lovely atmosphere and it was great to see bloggers and journalists talk about e.l.f. (eyes, lips and face). The brand is finally available in Superdrug so the event was a great way to showcase the product line and celebrate the latest addition to the Superdrug brand. The event interior was a mixture of white marble and classic white wall, this certainly made the products even more Instagram friendly.

life update #004 ♥

Hi guys, I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend. I wanted to write another life update post just to have a ramble and to explain why I've been so quiet on the blogging front lately. I used to post pretty much everyday but unfortunately my bedroom and living room has been having a makeover which has lasted for the past six weeks, this has made it pretty impossible to take blog photos and to review any products. Not only has it stopped me taking blog photos properly but it has also stopped me filming. I will be buying the Canon 750d but right now I have no where to actually film!
