Professional Beauty Event

Hey everyone! I haven't posted recently since I've been busy with University, so please accept my apology!! Ok, so the previous Sunday I made my way to the Professional Beauty Event for the first time and my experience was so LIVE. The venue was humungous and with so many people there I felt lost and vulnerable? The kind of 'lost' when you lose your mum in the supermarket. Besides that, I had a great time browsing innovative products that's going to be released into the industry very soon , and also the products were super affordable. I'm asian so I got highly hyped up over everything. Anyways, I managed to grab a handful of products I would like to show you guys!

 1. Lip Voltage by Dreamweave. I have read several reviews about this product and when I saw it on display I was so eager to purchase it, so I did without hesitation. I got home and I tried it straight away (I was optimistic to achieving the famous Kylie Jenner lips) but I was quite shocked. The sales assistant told me there will be a tingling sensation when you first apply it. However, it felt like my lips where on fire since the pain was real. I did see results quick since my lips were 'kind of' bigger and brighter. The Lip Voltage definitely locked up the moisture in my lips which was a bonus. If you guys would like to see before and after pictures, comment below and I will post a full review :)

 2. Moodstruck Mascara by Younique. I have wispy asian eyelashes so this was a must when I saw this on display also. Not amazing results when your eyelashes are very thin since it looks like you're building up on a few strands of lashes, therefore for great results it works best on thick eyelashes. I saw so many positive reviews about this product and I am one of them too! 

 3. Hot brush eyelash curler by Eyecurl. I'm the type of person who would splurge on innovative technology, so I had to get this. The results are great, but the lashes stay curled for a short period of time. 

 4. Photo-loving Primer, Lip Pencil, Eyebrow palette by NYX 

 5. Eye kohl, lipstick and gel nail polish by Mesauda

6. Nail polish, Shade Shifter nail polish by ORLY

7. Eye Kohl and Blusher by Peggy Sage

8. Art Deco by L.A colours

 9. Milky Sugar Peeling by Organique (I am super excited to try this out!)

10. Photo Fix Lip Colour by DMGM (Highly recommend! Matte finish, locks in moisture on your lips)

 On the same day, I also went out to Westfield and I saw this adorable shelf shaped as a cat for under £10. I could not resist.

STOP. If you ever see one of these whitening teeth treatments don't be persuaded into trying it out. It does not work. I did this during Happy Hour so it was buy one get one free (£45 each) and it was a waste of time and money.  

Let me know if you would like to see more hauls and in-depth reviews. Thank you for reading!

Capturing Vintage at Notting Hill

Greetings my lovelies! So last Thursday I visited Notting Hill for the first time, and I had a great experience having my first glimpse of West London. I’ve always wanted to visit West London, but since I’m an East London girl I’ve always found it hard to break that boundary… Boy am I kidding, I adore exploring! So (back on the subject) I actually went to Notting Hill to check out A.P.C’s sample sale, but sadly it didn’t match my standards since I expected more garments to be my size but I found literally nothing. That’s the major problem when it comes to sample sales, you either find something truly impeccable that is not your size or it has a defect, or you find a product that is ugly which is in your size.  Perhaps the chances of me purchasing a sample sale product are similar to me winning the lottery.

During my time there I made my way around Portobello Road which is very similar to Brick Lane. The area is well known for their landmark of colorful houses and the choice of vintage stores too. As I visited the area on a Thursday morning the vibe wasn’t bright whatsoever but I could imagine the hustle and bustle on a Sunday afternoon! Possibly the best time to visit vintage markets.

Outfit – Skirt (Forever21), Shoes (Zara), Black jumper (Uniqlo), Scarf (Moschino), Coat (Topshop).

City Airport Chillin'

Hello everyone! Just a quick outfit post from when I visited Yi-Ban, opposite City Airport. Recently I've really been into floppy/fedora hats since these badass hats hides my babies hairs perfectly, especially during windy conditions...

Pure London Trade Show

Hey, hey! So today I attended Pure London with Nicolette and Giulia, the UK's leading fashion trade show. It was the first day of the event (which lasts 3 days) and it was a very upbeat atmosphere, an environment filled with young professionals and upcoming companies. It was intriguing observing worldwide companies at one place, in which some came from China, Spain, Korea etc... Definitely an event every fashion student should attend! The fashion show which was presented was interesting to watch also, a glimpse into the trends of 2015.
