On Wednesday 19th June, I attended the Bloggers Love…Poppy’s event at The Penthouse in Leister Square. The venue was lovely with panoramic views overlooking The London Eye and The Palace of Westminster. I received a warm welcome from We Love Poppy’s staff and Bloggers Love event manager Danielle Antonio.The place was well decorated with lots of cup cakes and display of Poppys. There was complimentary drinks, manicure and make-up session followed by a fashion show.

I grabbed the opportunity of a complimentary manicure from the lovely nail artist of Desire Nails & Beauty. She did beautiful 3D nail art, painting the British flag with diamanté on my nails. This was the first time I tried 3D nail art and I absolutely loved it. You can check out Desire Nails & Beauty Facebook page , I would recommend giving her a try if you are looking to get amazing 3D nail art.

After drinks reception, the fashion show took place showcasing the beautiful swarovski covered Poppy connector sticks. We Love Poppy’s also offered a a great discount on all the showcased pieces especially for us bloggers. So I decided to treat my phone to cute little yellow bird shaped Poppy. Howeve,r later I changed my mind and lastly settled with an elegant white swarovski covered round poppy which is complimenting my black phone.

We also received a goody bag with discount vouchers and a cute bracelet.Over all the event was a great event and I am extremely delighted to have added a Poppy to my accessories collection.

Have a great weekend ladies.Stay elegantly fashionable xx.

Secret to glowing skin naturally..

Did you know that coconut water is very good for skin and helps to achieve glowing skin. Coconut water is the purest liquid after water which hydrates the skin naturally making it look younger and supple. The antioxidants present in coconut water helps keeping the skin looking younger and prevents aging. Coconut water also has nutrients which is considered to give energy boost.

I personally drink Vitacoco natural coconut water everyday and feel refreshed. Hopefully with regular drinking, my skin will start glowing. Vitacoco coconut water is easily available at supermarkets in the UK. They do natural coconut water as well as coconut water mixed with peach and mango. I personally love both.

So ladies, give it a try and let me know your thoughts

My make-up essentials: bareMinerals starter kit

I have an oily and acne prone skin. I used to get breakouts every time I put makeup on my face. I tried different liquid foundations and pressed powder but nothing helped until I was introduced to bareMinerals make-up by a skin therapist at a local spa where I was getting my skin treatments done. I have been using bareMinerals since 2011 and I absolutely love it. It feels light on the skin and you can either get a light or heavy coverage depending on your choice. It’s especially good for acne prone skin and doesn’t lead to breakouts. Since I used bareMinerals foundation almost daily, I went ahead and bought the starter kit.

makeup

Back in 2011 it was priced around £45 and had 8 pieces in the kit. Since then I have been topping up the foundation separately. The Kit includes, 2 shades of foundation, 1 mineral veil a.k.a. finishing powder, 1 all-over face color a.k.a. warmth, 3 brushes( full flawless face brush, flawless application brush and concealer brush) and a Get Started DVD. The DVD has tutorials on how to apply make-up using bareMinerals, which is very handy.

If you apply makeup regularly,it’s worth getting the starter kit. Now days they do a 9 piece starter kit which includes a face primer. You can find the starter kit here.

Do let me know ladies, if you have tried bareMinerals.

New in my accessories collection: Elegantly Fashionable earrings on a budget

I have been browsing around my local shopping mall on a day off, when I decided to head to Primark to window shop, which is one of my favorite pass time being a fashion and beauty blogger :P. I headed to straight to the accessories section to see if there was any interesting stuff. Having browsed for 15 minutes, I was bit tired as I wasn’t able to find any stuff worth buying. Just after that, I spotted one elegantly fashionable top earring in cream. I absolutely loved them and I was delighted with the price which was only £1.50.  Since it was so cheap, I decided to buy two more of them to match most of my tops and blouses.

done earings finalIf you are on a budget and looking to buy some accessories, I would definitely recommend heading to Primark as you can brag yourself some good stuff on a budget price.

Hope you ladies like the earrings.

How to get flawless skin on face?

I have acne scars and uneven skin tone on my face. I have been trying different products but didn’t get any results. I am firm believer of natural skin care and organic products and started searching on Google and on Youtube. I have discovered many bloggers and vloggers are talking about rosehip seed oil. Since I have oily skin I was bit hesitant on using oils but I saw few bloggers and vloggers mentioning it also works for oily skin and does wonders to the skin. Being a blogger I generally trust my fellow bloggers so started researching about the benefits of rosehip seed oil and if it can be used on oily skin.

After few searches on Google, I found out that rosehip seed oil is recommended to treat scarring from acne breakouts.If you are wondering what is Rosehip oil, then it’s basically pressed oil that is extracted from the seeds of wild rose bush. It’s a light oil and rich in vitamin A, Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, Omega 3 and Omega 6. Rosehip seed oil helps promote healthy skin and delays the effects of aging on skin. It also helps to reduce scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. Since the oil is very light it is easily absorbed and can be used daily.
After reading all the benefits I decided to go and buy rosehip seed oil. I wanted 100% organic natural product so I chose Trilogy 100% certified organic rosehip seed oil.

It’s a great product. I have been using this since 2 weeks and definitely have had visible results. I apply 3 drops twice daily after cleansing my face and neck. Since I have oily skin I don’t need to put a moisturizer afterwards and it’s not at all greasy and absorbs quickly. Also I dab some extra drops on my acne scars. I would definitely suggest all you ladies to give it a try.

I’ll be very happy to receive your feedback and comments.
