    Makeup Obsession

    I give up on the whole Tuesday tip thing. I can never stick to it and before I know it, it’s Wednesday night and no blog post has gone up.

    Or like Thursday…

    So whateves, I’m being rebellious, I can recommend you stuff whenever I want! I will not let my tips be controlled by days of the week starting with T! Power to the people!

    ..No YOU need to get a life!

    So while Hannah Gale is getting sent free GHD stuff and Danielle Vanier is strutting her stuff at Dune’s SS17 press day, I’m just over here hijacking any event I can. Because let’s face it, if not I’d still be swearing to the bodyshop brow shadow. Lolz

    Which I realized I first started using 10(!!!) years ago – before brows on fleek were a thing

    The lastest event I decided needed to be graced with my presence was the launch of the new Makeup Obsession range, currently exclusive to Boots. It was a rather quick stop by, as I feared if they looked too closely at my face they would realize that my makeup was in fact 12 hours old. I’m always so prepared that way haha

    Brought to you by Tam Beauty (who own Makeup Revolution), the idea is simple really. You buy yourself an empty palette box, and fill it by picking your favorite colors in shadows, blushes, highlighters and contour swatches.  A customized palette to fit your lifestyle and your personality! It’s brilliant really – if you’re not a greedy little blogger like me and ideally want a palette box for each….which you can easily do as each swatch starts at £2! How cheap is that for an eyeshadow?! Did I mention the colors are quite beautiful too?  I took the opportunity to venture out from my usual comfort zone in shadow colors and went for something a little different and I am in love love love. It’s quickly become my go to palette. In fact, it’s the only palette I am using at the moment actually… Curious? Check them out here – come to think of it, this makes a pretty amazing Christmas present!

    [Seriously] Good times

    When I was a little girl I had a huge obsession with mayo. No joke, it went on everything! Along side ketchup but thats a different story… I remember it got so bad at one point my mom would have to hide the mayo in fridge so I couldn’t find it, or I would throw myself over it like a savaged beast and just go crazy. Now that I think of it, my inner fat kid now makes total sense.. although my obsession has digressed over the years, mainly due to the fact that its not acceptable from a diet or adult point of view to put mayo on everything, its still close to my heart.

    So when Golin invited me to their Heinz Seriously Good Spoonful event, I wasn’t exactly gonna say no. The event was to showcase their new campaign, challenging wannabe foodie influencers and top bloggers to create a seriously good meal with a twist. The meal had to feature Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise as a an ingredient and fit on a single spoon. Just typing that makes my inner mayo heart fluttered with glee at the thought of consuming spoonfuls of delicious food. The event was held at IceTank in London, and judged by food stylist Nico Ghirlando, Heinz spokesperson Andy Bacon, by food critic William Sitwell. The latter giving me a serious case of celeb butterflies being the massive MasterChef fan that I am.

    The event was beautifully decorated with blue light, clever ways of displaying the dishes and voting jars, letting you drop in golden spoons in the ones you found your favourites! I fell in love with a black forrest brownie recipe that Im still dreaming about…

    I got to taste so must tasty food, leaving with a full belly and a goodie bag filled with mayo and new recipes to try. I cant wait to try the challenge my self! Dont worry, I will of course be sharing it with you guys! 😉
