Hi lovelies! Hope you all are well!

I wanted to take a lil time out amidst all of the chaotic running around and packing to let you all know that I will be going away on a holiday!
I'll be away for a good three months to enjoy Dubai and Pakistan and cannot wait to learn more about their cultures and just explore.
I think i'll have to leave blogging for a bit until I come back but you can always keep up with me on Instagram because I'll be posting snaps regularly and I hope to see you there as I share my journey whilst being out there!
I would of loved to of blogged out there too and who knows I might post a few posts from there but if not then atleast i'll have alot to share when I get back.

See you soon in January! Will miss you all!

Event | #Tilburytaxi

Charlotte Tilbury is a make-up brand that is loved by many celebs and bloggers but I had yet to try out the products, I was super excited to finally try it out and believe me, I'm now hooked!

Last week, I headed down to Rotunda Square, Birmingham for an event that seemed too brilliant to pass up. I was invited to the #tilburytaxi event which was a part of the Selfridges Live + Loud Festival. 
The gorgeous custom taxis were parked waiting to give complimentary mini makeovers and the lead artists there would show you a 'quick trick'. It was also a chance to really get to know the brand by seeing all of the lovely rose-gold Charlotte Tilbury products.

As soon as I arrived, I was introduced to the lovely Megan who was my make-up artist for the makeover. I was shown the cab and was asked to literally jump in. There was a pretty chest of drawers where all of the make-up was stored, everything was looking so pretty! I partially blame the gorgeous rose-gold packaging!
I was allowed to choose a look based on what I already use/do on my face daily so I opted for a sophisticated look. Think flawless, dewy base with contoured cheeks with a soft smokey eye finished off with a cat flick and lastly nude lips! I was even shown how to do the cat flick in a few easy steps since I always get one eye perfect than the other, please tell me i'm not the only one who has this issue! Haha! But I've definitely seen an improvement in my application skills, win!

I absolutely loved the whole experience, from trying out many of the best-sellers to learning a few new tricks. Megan did a fabulous job and I cannot wait to spoil myself with a few treats! I have my heart set on buying the Filmstar Bronze & Glow and the Full Fat Lashes Mascara! 

If you have not yet tried this brand then you seriously need to as soon as! I'd love to know your thoughts on the event!

Prairie Charms Luau Party Competition Goodies

Prairie Charms have become my new go-to boutique for all things accessories and ever since I ordered a Prairie Pizzazz box (you can view the unboxing post here) I have been wanting to order more! *hides wallet*

If you have read the previous post on Prairie Charms, you'll remember that I mentioned a bit about a little competition that involved bloggers to create a moodboard on Pinterest of inspiration for a luau party. I started pinning away but didn't think anything of winning and then days later it was announced that I had become one of the lucky winners!
I waited patiently for this package to arrive and it was truly worth the wait!
As soon as I saw the holographic package *heart eyes emoji* I opened it so quickly that I 'forgot' to Instagram it first, haha!

I am incredibly grateful for the amount of cute and colourful accessories that were sent to me, I wasn't expecting such pretty things. Everything definitely matches the luau party theme and I cannot wait to start wearing all of the pieces.
The items that I love the most are: The american chewing gum! I love all kinds of american confectionery so this was a lovely surprise! This gum is watermelon flavoured and well, it beats mint any day! The other item that I loved was the cute bow hair accessories. I own just plain black ones but the beautiful turquoise and hot pink bows will liven up my hair and make any hairstyle cute. The glitzy watermelon hair accessory is also so adorable, not sure if I will be able to pull it off but I'm all for experimenting with hair accessories.

Which accessory are you lovin' from my competition win? Comment below!
