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.

What I Heart In May

Wow! I am actually doing a 'What I Heart' new post, after my first ever monthly favourite last month (find it here) I though I would struggle to find new things that I could mentioned in this month's post but to my surprise- not at all- so it's time, yet again, to bundle together everything that I love from the past 4 weeks from beauty, food, place I visited etc.:

Brave By MAC

Brave by MAC is the newbie in my little MAC lippy collection, which by the way is growing rather rapidly, so I am certainly not complaining there. This time around I went out of my comfort zone and I purchased a shade more natural, definitely the lightest shade I have in my MAC collection, it's a shade that I am slowly but surely starting to really enjoy wearing, which is unusual because I am more of a deep colour kind of girl, but with Spring settled and Summer just around the corner I feel its a shade perfect for this time of the year.

My Boyfriend Make Up Knowledge | TAG

I thought it would be quite interesting to find out what my boyfriend knows about make up. I gave him a list of the most used make up, skincare and make up techniques and I asked him to tell me what he thinks it is for. So basically I created a tag that you could also use on your boyfriend or your brother/dad/husband! If you do this tag please let me know as I would love to read your experience and I am sure that it could be rather funny too. To revert back to my boyfriend I was very surprised by his answers, he actually knows as much as I do, here is his test and all the answers are his genuine replies, I have not in any way, helped him or given him any clues. Also to understand why he knows so well please see at the end of this blog post for the answer:

New Perfect Brushes

It's been a while since I talked about brushes on my blog, the last one was rather a while back... over a year ago actually (time flies by like crazy, doesn't it?) & you can read that old post of mine here. So you'll agree that it was time for a brushes post update of brushes that I have been loving lately.

MAC Lipstick Collections

It is time for me to do a round up of all those gorgeous MAC lipsticks I have got since the beginning of the year, when I discovered how great they were (I know where I have been before that?), I already accumulated a lovely little collection that goes from a fairly dark shade to more nude like colours. I honestly can say that I am officially hooked by MAC.
