Hello beauts, today we're talking 'Bloggers Love Fashion Week' possibly one of the most exciting events in any UK bloggers calendar! I squealed with excitement when I got approached to attend the event as a VIB (Very Important Blogger) across three days in the heart of London. Of course as many of you know I have only just started this blog (I actually started up on (YouTube & Twitter) however due to you guys following all of my content across my social media and supporting the start up of my blog it means that I am now able to start attending more events like this, which is literally amazing, so a big thank you to you, yes you

So you're probably thinking what exactly is BLFW?  

Its an event, packed with bloggers, brands (new and established) showcasing some of their newest collections. It is also filled with lots of activities such as Blog at First Sight, Personal Styling and Girl Meets Dress, which are just a few to name. The best part about this event is that if you're a newby or an expert blogger you can attend!

I'll be attending all of the dates listed on the schedule so I can't wait to meet some new bloggers and see some of your beautiful faces there too.

So will you be joining myself along many fabulous people, let me know in the comments if you're attending!

Benefit's They're Real Mascara Review

Hello everyone, hope you're all having a lovely week. Today I have something rather special to share with you... recently I was kindly invited up to Benefits Gabbi's Head (a pop up pub for the world cup)  and then was surprised with a gorgeous little pink package in my blogger mail a couple of weeks later. Anyway today is the first blogpost in where I am going to be reviewing the products sent to me and don't worry i'll be keeping the other products top secret for now, so you'll have something too look forward to next week.

Anyway getting straight into it, may I introduce to you 'They're Real Mascara' one of the most hyped up mascaras I have ever heard of and have been dying to try it but somehow never actually got round to it, so I practically squealed when I opened the parcel and saw this!

Firstly let me start off by saying yes, this is 100% worth the hype and apparently us UK girlies agree too as its the No.1 best-selling mascara. I prefer applying my mascara with a plastic wand as it really helps me to separate the lashes, unfortunately when my favourite Maybelline define-a-lash was discontinued and I had no choice but to use a fibre brush as I couldn't find an alternative. 

If only I had tried 'They're Real' the brush is super similar to the define-a-lash, but it has a few little things that make SUCH a world of difference. The brush is longer than most, meaning that the mascara is a lot quicker to apply. The end of the wand also features a spiked bit, which really gets into those corner lashes, which is literally the best thing ever as I always struggle and end up with a black sploge on my face (i'm sure i'm not alone here). I will never know why drug store brands never came up with this idea, its genius!

The mascara claims to lengthen, curl, volumize, lift and separate lashes which is a lot of things just from one mascara, but you know thats exactly what it does. I was very lucky to be blessed with super long eyelashes so I was intrigued to see if it would do anything more dramatic and the result was just fabulous! The colour is super jet black and long lasting meaning no smudges, so perfect for summer.

All in all, I'm converted, no drug store mascara's for me ever again, I'm a benebabe and i'm now dying to try this mascara with Benefits 'They're Real Push Up Liner' as I think the results could be something beautiful! 

You can purchase the mascara here.

Lots of love and lashes,

Enrapture Encode Totem Styler Review

  BEFORE: with Tantrum Locks

Hello lovelies, today I have something rather special to share with you its the 'Enrapture Encode Totem Styler' which I recently purchased and thought I would share my thoughts on this product with you! So lets get started...

I purchased this on Ebay and unfortunately I'll be sending it back as when I first turned it on I noticed it only worked if you held the bottom of the iron in, I was pretty gutted because I have been dying to use it on an everyday basis, oh well hopefully it will be replaced and I can continue using it.

So the hype around this product is pretty much what it suggests. This products different to any other with the fact the iron itself actually has 3 different sections, which you can adjust in order to change styles by twisting before you switch the iron on. 1 being the lowest amount of heat and 3 being the highest. To achieve the look above I had the iron on 3-3-3 as I have super thick hair because I have gorgeous micro ring hair extensions in from the lovely Tantrum Hair (@TantrumHairx). I love the messy beachy wave look, so just curled random sections of hair outwards towards the bottom creating volume along the way. Next time I use the iron i'll probably turn the heat to 1-2-3 as if I held the hair on the iron for any more than 3 seconds I'd probably have super tight curls, I feel this combination will be better for waves.

So staying power? Pretty darn good! I absolutely love my 'Babyliss Boutique Waving Wand' its literally one of my holy grail hair tools, but the waves just don't stay put especially if you get caught in the rain, however I think Enrapture Encode Totem Styler is pretty amazing and for its £20-25 price tag online I think its a steal!

Have you guys tried this product, let me know what you think in the comments!

Enjoy your day,

Becca xx

Prom Style Snapshot

Dress: Bonitta Origami Mini Dress in Blush - £19.99 
Shoes: Topshop 
Clutch: TKMaxx - £19.99
Bracelet: Primark - £3
Extensions: Tantrum Hair 

Hello lovelies, today I thought I'd show you guys this gorgeous prom look that could also be perfect for a night out. Luckily enough I got to attend my 4th prom as a few of my friends retook the year and I got invited along. 

I spotted this gorgeous Missguided dress and had been trying to find an excuse to buy it for ages, so I did (yay!) I paired this dusty pink dress with some Topshop ankle strap chunky black heels from last year, which are super comfy (you can find similar pairs on Ebay) along with this clutch which has a rose imprint and a touch of glitter. This simple gold cuff from Primark which I picked up on a shopping trip a few weeks ago is so pretty, I thought it would match the gold trim on the clutch amazingly so added that to the look and last but least as always I'm rocking my super gorge Tantrum Hair extensions (they're amazing!)

I hope you have enjoyed this little outfit & I can't wait to wear it again sometime soon for a night out this summer. Let me know in the comments what you think and as always, speak soon.

Lots of Love

Becca xx
