I cannot believe February is over and March is here already! Where did the time go? Crazy isn't it!! So I thought it was the perfect time for me to do a round-up of everything that has happened via my Instagram since December last year!

The Bloggers Hangout London Fashion Week Party

Last Monday was quite a good day to wake up to for me. No Monday blues at all because I had an afternoon Blogger event to attend. It was the Bloggers Hangout Fashion Week Party 2016 Edition! I still had to do a bit of work in the morning but when it turned 12 pm it was like, turn off the laptop, goodbye colleagues, grab the handbag, retouch the makeup in the bathroom on the way out, put the sunglasses on and goodbye office and hello sunny and buzzing London.

Wooden wonder by Timbergram

I have a thing for tigers. Tigers of any kind, quirky print tigers, colourful tigers, tigers with hats on or something silly like this then I am in! And not just tigers, deer, penguins, sharks or bear too! Yeess! don't ask why it is just an odd thing of mine.

Here are my latest February bits and bobs that I purchased from Boots & Superdrug that have now joined my ever expending make up collection. Let's start with what I am pretty much most excited about:

Colour Boost by Bourjois | Review

I feel like we don't speak enough about the Color Boost jumbo pencil by Bourjois, this collection has been around for quite some time and in my opinion, they are the most hydrating, colorful and shiny jumbo stick lippy out there. 
And when you have such a great combination why look elsewhere?

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Bronzer | Review

I have been looking for a little while for a bronze/ golden-ish marble bronzer but as much as luxury brand such as,Chanel, Hourglass etc. had what I was looking for but I wasn't ready to pay the tag price well not this time anyway and this is by pure coincidence that I came across this gorgeous bronzer by Makeup Revolution. Side note: I temp to use bronzer more as a blusher than a bronzer but then again never say never.

My Little Beauty Box | January Edition

Ok I confess, I was yet again weak and subscribed to My Little Box. Back in 2014 to early 2015, I was subscribed to it, along with Glossybox, for about 6 months or so and then I stopped both of them mostly because I was getting too many products a month. I hear you say: What? Who is complaining about getting too much beauty products? Well...Me ! as much as I love skincare and make up it was way too many to try in a month, my shelves were getting far too full (along with the other products I carried on purchasing...you know I can't help going to Boots on a weekly basis, right?) so I stopped both boxes with a little regret I have to admit, especially My Little Box which always been my favourite.

The Red | St Valentine Edition

The first thing that I thought about when doing my St Valentine's post was it has to contain red,  it has to contain lipsticks and they have to be red, so the red lipsticks edition was born! I am a red lippy type of girl, I have the lip for it like my mum which reminds me constantly 'why hide them' she would say 'embrace what you've got' and I really do! (my mum was a make up artist it my explains the bold statement!). I do own a large collection of red lippy but those 3 are my top favourites for their quality and their beautiful red colour it is as simple as that.

Ruby Woo | MAC

I know you are probably not going to believe me but I purchased my first ever MAC lipstick. Yes I know ...sorry!! But I am more a Chanel lippy kind of girl you see (I still love you Chanel!!) but I have to do the big jump and try a MAC. I had to try MAC and I made a big mistake because I am now hooked. Why oh why goddess of the beauty are you doing this to me? Why? Like I have not enough addiction already!

Ted Baker Brilliance of Beauty

For my birthday, which was in December, I received this beautiful Ted Baker Brilliance of Beauty Make Up Set. I'll be honest with you that I've never tried anything Ted Baker beauty related before, I know fairly well their fashion brand but even though Ted Baker is widely available at Boots I have never tried them. So getting this make up set was kind of a lovely surprise to finally try something non fashion related by this brand.

Barry M | Spring 16 collection launch

Last Friday I had the awesome privilege to be invited to Barry M's spring '16 launch and being genuinely a big fan of Barry M, and especially their beautiful nail polish line, (If you don't believe me please find my Barry M post here) I could only be very excited about this event.
Their Spring 2016 launch was held as the iconic St Martin's Lane Hotel in London, right in the heart of the West End. At my arrival I was welcomed by a lovely member of the Barry M team and she kindly introduced me to their new Spring 2016 collection which are to be officially launched in Superdrug on the 10th of February and in Boots on the 17th of February. This new Spring collection is divided into 6 groups: the Brow Kit, the Chisel Cheeks contour kit, the That's How I Roll mascara, Quick Dry nail polish collection, the Sunset Daylight Curing collection and finally the famous Gelly Hi Shine nail polish collection.
