Today's outfit..Plus my Mac eyelashes!

Photobucket Photobucket 
Todays outfit consisted of one of the new Motel dresses (not yet out) that I borrowed as I was out and about in London today looking for new stores. I think it's important that we always represent the new stock from Motel, so although this dress isn't mine... it's defiantly worth keeping your eyes peeled for! I decided to wear no necklace today and just team with my topshop pleather jacket and suede boots!

I've also found the lashes I love from Mac... I'm always searching for the right eye lash for me and they always seems to get longer and the corners and it isn't what I wanted as it creates a different shape for my eye... I also find that these lashes are never actually longer enough for my eyes so they don't reach across my lid. I can highly recommend 'Number 3' from the Mac eyelash range and their glue I've always used! It stays put, but doesn't hurt when you remove in the evening!

November's Glossy Box...

So I love the concept of all these companies that you can sign up to and receive a selection of products you wouldn't normally buy for a monthly fee.

This month Glossy box has sent me their November package and I got really excited about receiving it this morning. It comes in super lovely postage box and then there is another really 'luxurious' style box which hold all the products from the month. I'm hoping I can find a use for the box afterwards as it feels too nice to simply throw away!
Inside this months box is:

Arbonne FC5 Ultra hydrating Hand Creme - 15ml
Dead sea Spa Magik Dead Sea Bath Salts - 250g (it seems like 1 use)
Illamasqua - Freak Eau De Parfum - 1.5ml
Monu Revitalising Moisturiser - 50ml
Nail Rock Designer Nail Wraps - Contains 16 nail wraps

I'm really excited to try the products, I've just ran out of moisturiser, been looking for an excuse to actually have a bath (i'm definatly a shower girl) and just purchased a load of bits to get into nail art, so all in all a good box for me! I've never really used hand creme, but I'll give it a go! Winter approaching so I'll try to keep the mits soft!

The pack contains useful information, discount codes and lots of tips!
I'll report back with my review of each of the products once I've tried them!

I've just signed up to get a graze box in the post this week too... I think I could get sign up happy for these products in the post!

You can sign up for Glossy box HERE for £10 a month + £2.95 shipping

Carne Griffiths 'Journey' exhibition at Gallery 90

On Friday evening I had the pleasure of attending the opening for JP's friend Carne Griffiths exhibition entitled 'Journey'. The exhibition is being held from 19th November - 4th December at Gallery 90 over in Finsbury.
Now I have no shame in admitting, although my family all seem to be artists, It's something that I've never got involved in or been part of, however, recently I've been visiting more and more exhibitions and gallery's and I've really been enjoying myself. I can't really stand in front of a piece of art and pull it apart telling you what I get or take from it, I just like it or I don't... (thats the none artist in me) but I have to say, Carnes work was probably my favourite that I've seen since visiting exhibitions and I'd happily have his work on my wall. I didn't take my camera this evening, but I've managed to get hold of some other images taken that night, along with some of Carne's work for you to see!

Camden market jewellery cravings

Going to Camden market on friday was nice, I haven't been in so long! It reminded me why I don't go shopping in London though! It just creates a big WANT list!

I'm going to start buying one nice piece of jewellery a month and build up a decent collection! I'll report back when I have got my first one!

Winter wonderland

Part of me still feels like its wrong that Christmas lights are up... It's doesn't feel one bit like Christmas yet. Is it my age and lack of excitement for Christmas or am I not alone In the fact that this has been the quickest year so far??
Had a visit from family this weekend and so we took a walk round parts of Kensington and ended up popping over to the hyde park winter wonderland where I got myself a cup of mulled wine (in attempt to find my Christmas spirit) and looked round the hundreds of stalls filled with Christmas treats and sweets and then I sobbed over the fact no-one would join me on one of the many funfair rides! It actually felt like winter for the first time yesterday, I better start my Christmas shopping...

Blogger mobile app

Ok so maybe i'm a little slow on the uptake but FINALLY Blogger has given us an app!
I haven't had time to test it yet, can we still build posts in HTML?

For now I'm grateful for being able to blog on the move!

For now enjoy an image of my cat trying to drink from my cup!

Motel Rocks Blogger Event - Pre Christmas Preview

We all know that more and more the blogger world has become the way brands choose to promote their products. Gifting bloggers and getting them to write about the brand they love so much is such an obvious way to promote a company and that's why, like Motel, more and more companies are getting involved.
Motel appreciates how effective the world of social media and blogging can be to getting girls to our website and loving our product, so our social media (and fellow blogger) Selina decided to hold a bloggers event at our London showroom, to get some of the lovely UK bloggers talking about our current capsule range.
We even had the lovely ladies from Glossy Box down for the event as well, letting girls guess the weight of one of their monthly boxes to be in with the chance of winning the contents! Glossy Box is a monthly subscription service to give you the chance to try out some of the high-end brand beauty products that you might not usually buy, £10 a month will get you 5 mini products to test and review and they all come with handy tips and tricks for how to use them! Perfect!
As if that wasn't enough we had Boom nails creating nail art, candy floss, popcorn, more drinks than you could hope for and lots of classic tunes!
Here's some photos of the event and the babes that attended!
