Beauty pic n mix at the #Bootsgiveitago event
A selection of Bumble & Bumble styling products
On Friday, I had a lovely day out with Gemma and Jayne. The day started with dim sum at my favourite restaurant followed by an afternoon of make up and new trends at the #Bootsgiveitago event. I was treated to a raspberry Ted Baker manicure and I've since discovered a new favourite lipstick. If you'd like to try some of the new trends for yourself, then make sure you pop by a Boots store on 22nd March where they'll be plenty of new make up and in store advisers on hand.
I love drinking cocktails on a night out, so when Yardley offered me the chance to attend a cocktail making masterclass, I jumped at the chance. We made 3 different drinks, and thanks to Gemma, I've now come to the conclusion that gin cocktails are actually quite nice. My favourite was Mint Julep, which consisted of rum, mint, lemon and apple juice. Yum!
Bumble & Bumble and Smashbox photoshoot
Smashbox and Bumble & Bumble
Despite being a beauty blogger, I hate being photographed and I'm about as unphotogenic as they come! That said, I did rather enjoy getting a set of professional photos done with Bumble & bumble and Smashbox. The make up artist choose a flattering peachy Mimosa lipstick and I was really impressed with Bumble & Bumble styling spray. Usually I stay clear of hairsprays, but this one didn't leave my hair too crispy and it managed to hold my curls all night long.
The Body Shop bunny cake
Finally, animal testing is now illegal in the EU. To celebrate, I was sent this beautifully decorated Victoria sponge. The Body Shop have been campaigning for years, so this is a real achievement them. I've been sharing it with my flatmates and we've all enjoyed it as an after dinner dessert. In fact, I may just go and treat myself to another slice, it is Sunday afternoon after all!
What's been the highlight of your week? Have you got anything nice planned for the rest of this month?
