Autumn Greys | Outfit

This is my second outfit post, after all the lovely and supporting comments I had on my 1st one, few weeks ago, which you can find here, I felt much more confident to do an other one and I think I'll probably do one every now and then .Whenever I feel like it and of course when I have new outfits to show you. Two Sundays ago it was a very sunny morning in London but yet rather cold my photographer (alias boyfriend) and myself went back to Crystal Palace park in London which is minutes away from our flat to do an other outfit session.

MAC Aids Charity Event With Anna & Lily Pebbles

Being a follower of The Anna Edit & Lily Pebbles on social media I heard they were doing a little last minute meetup this week at the MAC in Carnaby Street, London for the charity #MACaids, you know I couldn't miss the opportunity to say hello to Anna & Lily again (See my meetup with them last month here), try on some MAC lippy and most of all donate for #MACaids charity.
The MAC Aids Fund's mission is to help people form all ages, backgrounds & gender affected by HIV & AIDS. Their mission is to help mostly in countries were affected people are more at risk to be neglected. Being a beautiful charity to support and also this being the time of year where we all need to give more support to those in need I went down after a hard day at work and all warm up in my giant scarf to the M.A.C. store at Carnaby Street just near Liberty in SOHO.

Kew Gardens | London

When in London there is definitely a place that cannot be missed for a long stroll with family or friends. It is luxurious, decadent, beautiful, educational  and most importantly it reminds you the beauty of nature. This place is Kew Gardens. Funnily enough 18 years ago when I first moved to London this was one of the 1st places I visited with a bunch of friends and I always remember how beautiful and grand it was...now 18 years later, I am actually about to leave London with a baby on the way and move with my boyfriend to our own house in the countryside and so to close the loop I went to visit Kew Gardens once again, a few weeks ago.

Misty Autumn Outfit

About a year ago it was the 1st year anniversary of my blog and one of my resolutions was to put myself out there a little bit more, and by that I meant to post pictures of my face really. I have to admit it didn't really happen... until now. Lately I went for a little shopping trip with my boyfriend, I got few new jumpers etc. and I thought perhaps it was the occasion to take the camera out of the house, get my personal photographer/Boyfriend and go out to our favourite local park in London and do an 'outfit' shoot, really to show off the few little items I bought and for once to have my face in front of the camera and not behind it. I have no intention to pretend that I know a lot about fashion but still I hope my outfit does not scream 'outrage!'

Autumnal Beauty Haul

The trees start to go golden, the air is crisp, the sunlight is whiter and you know what that means, Autumn is here! and it has to be my favourite season with Winter. The past Summer, I'll be honest with you I got very little make up, mostly just essential things, Somehow I never get excited by Spring/Summer make up collections and I do wear less make up during these two seasons but when the fresher nights arrive then things suddenly change and I go from mostly little interest into a frenzy of make up buying and I'm back enjoying my make up and experimenting with it. Earlier this month I went to Westfield in Stratford, London for a little shopping spree and mostly to look at what Boots had to offer, I didn't go crazy but its only the beginning of Autumn after all.

Look Good Feel Better Event with Lily Pebbles & Anna

Lily Pebbles & Anna from The Anna Edit blog partnered up last Thursday with the charity: Look Good Feel Better and Liberty to organise a free event to where you can meet them and to help raise money for the amazing charity. Having lost my sister a year ago to cancer I had to participate and at the same time meet two of my favourite bloggers/ You Tubers. 
After a hard day at work me and my little bump managed to get through the ever busy Oxford Street to reach one of my favourite places in London: Liberty. The event started at 6pm and I pretty much arrived with 20 minutes to spare and as usual I spent that time trying all lipsticks available at all the beauty stands and have half my harm covered in swatches, but you know how it is, you can't go to Liberty and not spend most of your time in the beauty department, as a proper beauty/lifestyle blogger that would be a crime. The event pretty much started bang on 6 pm, a DJ was pumping out some good tunes, Prosecco and fruity cocktail drinks in mason jars started to flow and then Lily & Anna appeared, from it seems, nowhere and to my surprise very kindly invited me to chat with them. The best thing ever was that they actually remembered me from when I first met them randomly a year ago at Taste of London, (you can see my post: here). These two were lovely, they congratulated me about my pregnancy and we chatted for a good 10 minutes about my Chanel lippy I was wearing, London life in general and that they do hope to see me bringing my little one on the next event they'll organise when she'll be born, laughing that she might be the next big You Tuber or Blogger out there... who knows? After that I left them to chat with all the other ladies there to see them as the queue was growing rather rapidly.

Estée Lauder #BCAwareness Beauty Box

It is October, and you know what that means? Its Breast Cancer Awareness month!! And with this Estée Lauder have launched an amazing Limited Edition Beauty Box that would make all beauty bloggers want it like crazy... I mean look at it! what is not to like? 
But before I go more into detail about this box I felt I was obliged to do something this month and the reason being its that; my sister who, passed away in December last year, at the young age of 35 battled for 5 years with breast cancer, she beat it at first but unfortunately weeks later a tumour was found in her brain and within days my beautiful sister left us and her 5 year old little girl:  Chloé. So in her memory and to make us all aware that no one is safe, unfortunately, and that if we all work together we'll bit this one day, so why not do something this month regardless how big or small, please do something in memory of those who have left us and those who are fighting for their lives.

The past few weeks #4

It's been a while since I have done one of these posts and I think the last one was in February which you can find here. The time passed so quickly I can't believe we are now in Autumn! Crazy! So what happened since February ...well I am not going to lie but rather a few things, I will start by probably the most life changing one and also I was kind of waiting for the right time to announce it on this little blog of mine.

#Bloggersfestival 2016

Oh do I love Bloggers events and especially at this time of the year when, surprisingly they are becoming more frequent. Always a pleasure to see old faces and meet new faces, discovering new brands or just being re-introduced to brands that are always there and are always a pleasure to see again and try out their new collection. This year #bloggersfestival edition 2016 was no exception. If you haven't read #bloggersfestival from last year find it here. Or what about checking out #Bloggersball also organised by Scarlett_London earlier this year. I expected lots of fun, excitement and cocktails! well I wasn't allowed to drink alcoholic cocktails as being an expecting mother *wink* but fruity non-alcoholic cocktails were on my menu.

A week in Normandy - A picture tale

Normandy in North of France is my birth place, I only lived there until the age of 10. Normandy is for that reason very close to my heart and if my partner and I were to move to France in years to come we'll most likely choose Normandy. For the beautiful countryside, the beaches, the food, all the cottages, cows fields and the way of life in general. I just love Normandy and anything related to it. For my summer holiday we went to spend just under a week in Normandy to spend some time with my family. Spending time with my love one, visiting breathtaking landscapes and eating my weight on amazing food (especially cheeses and famous patisseries from Normandy) was amazing! Here a little picture tale of my too short trip hoping that it will inspire you to go one day.

#bloggersball 2016

Back in mid June (I will explain why I haven't post for many weeks in a future post) with a lot of excitement and anticipation I went to the #bloggersball event, which was the second event I've been to from the very talented Scarlett_London who...wait for it... organised it all by herself so two thumbs up for her!! My last event by her was the #BloggersFestival back in September last year. This year the event was held at the very glamorous and glitzy Dstrkt in West End London hence the blogging event tittle which I have to say suits it perfectly. Of course Scarlett pulled out all the stops as she really wanted to make us feel and look very special at this exclusive venue.

Tonsee Pro Oval Brush | Review

I have seen lately, and I am sure you too, a new trend in the brush alley going around and they are those oval type brushes and as you may know when I start getting more and more curious about something I have to satisfy this curiosity and get one to try it for myself. After a little search I came across Tonsee Pro Oval Brush brand which had great reviews at a very affordable price as I didn't want to break the bank for something that is still very new. So without hesitation I got the foundation Tonsee Pro Oval brush as I though it was the perfect starting point.

It's Official NYX landed in Boots

Yes you heard well! Finally NYX has landed in Boots and its with my arms open wide that I welcome this brand fully to the old British land. I mean the truth is that really I didn't need an other amazing brand to be hooked on but how can I not love them when their lipstick collection goes from matte, to suede, to glossy, to creamy and all the nudes you may wish for to very dark shades! Yes the love is real and yes I am officially hooked.
So after trying to hunt down a branch of Boots that I could get my hands on some NYX products its with delight that I found the stand with the widest number of products was located at the Boots in Picadilly Circus, but please if you do know any better locations I am all ears, and a side note, not all Boots have NYX stands.

London Borough Market

Few weeks ago my family from France decided that it was well over due to pay my boyfriend and I a visit in London, let's say my family are not the most adventurous when it comes to leave their beautiful South of France, but when they do come, they come in style with a car full of yuminess from France, enough to feed an army.
Even though they brought so much food for us from sunny South of France, one thing that I really wanted my parents to experience was the London Borough Market near London Bridge. To show them the British way of food markets because honestly its amazing and well...they are food lovers so I knew they would love it.
