AX Paris - #AXCircus

Last Wednesday I took a half day from work to head to London to attend the AX Paris blogger event held at Circus in Covent Garden.

I meet up with my darling Tara from The Style Rawr and we hopped the coach to London.

A few snaps from my phone, forgive the poor quality!

The event was so much fun! We were treated to performances from the amazing performers at Circus from gorgeous girls dancing and playing with fire to a hot guy treating us to some hoop acrobatics! In between performances, we sipped on cocktails and had a good old natter. There was also a photo booth, which was amazing and we made good use of it. ;)

At the event we were shown a preview of the upcoming AX Paris TV advert, coming soon to a TV screen near you! You can also watch it here. We also had the chance to browse the new AX Paris collection.

It was great to meet up with lots of lovely bloggers and meet some new people!

Goodies!
Everyone was given an amazing goodie bag full of treats. I was especially excited by the Colour Me Good Ryan Gosling colouring book <3. I'm also looking forward to trying out the Nail Art Tattoos.

Our coach didn't get in until after 1.30am and I had to go to work in the morning, so it was a little tough but so worth it! Thanks so much to AX Paris and etail pr for putting on such a great event.

Harvey Nichols Bristol - Part Two


Just a little post to show you guys what I wore to the Harvey Nichols blogger event last week...

Coral blazer from primark
Dress: Boohoo. Blazer: Primark. Necklace: Accessorize

I've been dying to wear this Boohoo dress since it landed on my doorstep a couple of months ago. Luckily for me last Saturday was pretty sunny and only a teeny bit chilly so I decided that it was time for it's debut. I paired it with my new coral blazer from Primark, which was a bit of a bargain at £19. I adore the colour and I can see it becoming a permanent fixture in my wardrobe this summer. My cute feather necklace is from Accessorize, I've had it for a couple of years but it doesn't get featured enough in my day to day wardrobe, so I'm going to try and wear it a bit more!

Harvey Nichols Bristol Blogger Event - Part One

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to be invited to attend a Blogger event at Harvey Nichols Bristol. We were greeted in the personal shopping area by the lovely Daniel, who is head of womenswear at Harvey Nichols in Bristol. Daniel talked us through the key trends this season, which included Pop of Colour, White Out, Monochrome and No Limits Prints, whilst showing us some of the key pieces in the store at the moment.

Afterwards we each went off to the shop floor for some yummy beauty treatments. I started off with a Bliss facial, which was really nice and my skin instantly looked refreshed and brighter afterwards. I then headed over to Shu Uemura and had my make-up done, I like my make-up to look natural so I opted for a bb perfector cream, with some powder to give my face a more matte look, which is what I prefer. As if that wasn't enough, I then had a yummy hand and arm massage at Elemis.

Once I'd finished all my treatments, I was lucky enough to get a little tour around the handbag and accessories section of Harvey Nick's, also known as Heaven! There are so many gorgeous handbags on display from a great selection of designers including Mulberry, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Celine.

All the staff at Harvey Nichols are so knowledgeable and passionate about their jobs and it really shows!



I wish all Saturday's could be like this!

Bristol Fashion Week - Spring Summer Show

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Spring Summer bloggers show at Bristol Fashion Week, which was held at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway. Unfortunately work has been manic lately so I haven't had a chance to post about it until now!

The show was presented by TV stylist Mark Heyes & celebrity hairdresser Andrew Barton. I love these two together, they have great chemistry and help make the show really enjoyable.

The show featured yummy neons and prints from Karen Millen. Neon is such a fun trend to play with, I like it when I see people wearing just a touch of neon, for example a handbag or other accessory to help an outfit standout.

Monochrome is everywhere at the moment, personally I love it for workwear, I think it helps break up my sometimes boring work outfits! This post wouldn't be complete without a shout out to the hot male model pictured here, swoooon.

Ahhh who doesn't enjoy a good floral print?! It makes me think of spring and sunshine, something that's seriously lacking at the moment. I'd like to get my hands on the pink trousers pictured above for when the weather picks up!

I attended the Autumn/Winter show in September last year and it was great, I love that Bristol has it's own fashion week, it's one of the many reasons I love this city. As well as strutting down the runway most of the models in the show dance, which kept us entertained! At the end of the show all the models plus Mark & Andrew came on stage to perform a rendition of Gangnam Style, it was awesome! haha.

So did you go to any of the Fashion Week shows?
