Recently, I also had the pleasure of attending The Beauty Awards, a swanky awards ceremony which was held after hours at the V&A museum. Usually at events there's not much of an opportunity to chat, so it was great so sit down over dinner and catch up with some of my favourite bloggers. We also had the opportunity to meet Dawn Porter, chat about her top beauty tips, as well as finding out more about Andrex Washlets.

Andrex washlets, the beauty awards
The washlets are basically flushable wet wipes that you use in place of tissue, and from next January, Dawn will be the spokeswoman for their new tv campaign. Having already tackled many controversial/taboo topics for the BBC, Dawn seems like the perfect person for the job, and she certainly kept us amused with her tales of approaching people in the streets, many of whom either walked away or thought she was a complete weirdo! Look out for the new TV advert, which Dawn actually filmed at the award ceremony.

Being a group of beauty blogger, the conversation soon turned to hair and make up, and she spoke at length about her love for Estee Lauder double wear foundation (which lasts all day), Moroccan oil (for glossy, sleek hair) and lashings of kohl liner, which along with a nude lip is her signature look.

Have you been up to much recently? What did you think about the new James Bond Skyfall movie?
