A couple of weeks ago I went to a brush lettering workshop at One Girl Band, run by the lovely Lola Hoad of Lola Hoad Design. I heard about the course after I saw Lola speak at a Benefit Cosmetics Blogger Event I went to and I just couldn’t wait to sign up!
If you haven’t guessed yet… it’s begun. Wedding planning is on full go and I am loving it. I love to plan stuff anyway and this is kind of the ultimate occasion you can do this for. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have no intention of going Bridezilla but I’m probably not going to be a Bridechilla either (however much I’d like to be).
Get ready for another Papergang review!!! You know I love this subscription box, I rave about it enough. I try not to write about it every month… but this one was such a goodie it needs a mention! The may box was in collaboration with Arden Rose whose book Almost Adulting is currently sitting on my amazon wishlist. Her Instagram is a dream so I just knew the picks for this months box would be too!
Last Wednesday I had the loveliest evening with some of my favourite girls, catching up and chit-chatting at Paradiso Bar & Dining, which has just opened up at 38 Preston Road in Brighton!
Paradiso pitch themselves as a relaxed and casual dining space where you can come down, have a drink and eat some food and it certainly delivers on all of the above. Currently sporting an introductory menu of mainly burgers and sandwiches it’s the perfect place for a quick get-together with friends. They also have a good selection of beers and most importantly a great cocktail menu with something for everyone.
If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know that I was invited to a Benefit Cosmetics event on 27th March in Brighton. I was so excited when I received the email as I love Benefit Cosmetics so a chance to go along to an event of theirs was a bit of a dream come true. The invite promised talks from the lovely Lola Hoad and Tashie Tinks, as well as lots of bubbles and an appearance by the gorgeous BrowMobile… and it certainly didn’t disappoint! I didn’t know anybody else going to the event but I do find this forces you to talk to people and I met some really lovely girls. (I did also realise afterwards that I already followed a few of the people I saw around but didn’t chat to #oops)
At the beginning of February Adam whisked me off to Venice for a couple of days and I’ve finally got around to writing up my favourite parts of the adventure. So, here are my top 6 picks of things to do in Venice…
I love Benefit, you love Benefit, everyone loves Benefit… so when I got the Benefit Most Wanted Mascara Line-up set for Christmas (how long ago was that?!) I was over the moon. I’d used the BADgal lash before and had heard amazing things about Roller Lash so I was really excited to try this out. What I was really interested in though was being able to directly compare all 3 of their mascaras against each other… so without any more further-ado…
