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.
