Grabble Event

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxx
Dress: Topshop
Rings: New Look
Flatforms: Amazon

On Tuesday, i was lucky enough to be invited by Grabble to their #GrabAMakeover evening at the Andrew Barton Salon in Convent Garden.We were told to arrive promptly at 6pm to be ready for an evening full of pampering. There was the opportunity to have your nails done, have a massage, have your hair styled or to have your makeup done. I went for all three apart from the nails as there wasn't enough time to fit all of them in. There were many drinks available from Schwepps and there were these ALCOHOLIC ice lollies from Mahiki Lic  (i know - crazy right!?) They weren't to my taste as there were rather strong, i'm someone who likes to enjoy my alcohol without being able to taste it lol. But loads of other bloggers loved them, and even went back for seconds!

This is the outfit i wore for the event on the evening. I bought this gorgeous pale blue, Victorian-esque floral dress from Topshop, and it was in the sale. (£18 BARGAIN!) I absolutely adore it, it's a typical 'me' dress, something i would often turn to when not being able to choose anything to wear. I'm wearing my trusty white flatform shoes, which are lifesavers when i want to appear taller than i am without actually wearing my heels and a selection of rings. These outfit photos were taken once i got home from the event so excuse the lighting but i was just dying to show you my hair! As i said above, there were hairstylists available on the night to style your hair, this is what one of the stylists did to mine. Doesn't it just look fabulous? She's done some twists and then joined them joined them together at the back, yet left a section of hair to drape down naturally. I absolutely loved it. I've forgotten the name of the woman who styled this for me (i don't think i caught her name actually) But i thoroughly recommend her for hair styling. You can find her at the Andrew Barton Salon or by her twitter page here.

Here are some photos from the event consisting of Andrew Barton himself, Katie Fieldman - the lovely woman who organised the whole event!, Stylingo a blogging duo who i adore, my friend Sarah who lives right by me, and my friend Christine, who is actually someone i met when i was working at my casting company.

You know the words

x xx xxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxxx
Sunglasses: Protest
Dress: Ravi Famous
Bag(*): DSUK at LYDC
Sandals(*): Ipanema

Well firstly, let me start off by telling you i'm not entirely sure where this dress is actually from. I'm pretty certain i was sent to review it but i don't remember ever working with a company called Ravi Famous, and if i did it's not recorded. I personally thought i'd bought it from Camden Market but whatever. This dress is lovely, it's a perfect summer dress due to the way it sits and how the skirt blows in the wind. I love dresses like this, they've got a bit of an old fashion look about them, and for some reason i feel rather comfortable and confident in them. I'm a dress/skirt girl, give me them over jeans/trousers/shorts anyday! Something i love about this dress is the animal print that is has on it, cats to be precise. Well in my household we have 8 cats, (i know that's crazy! Blame my mum, she's a crazy cat woman!) so i have grown up loving cats, and this dress kind of represents that lol. The colouring of the bag matches the flip flops which were both sent to me to review.
I was sent this stunning bag to review from LYDC through the lovelies over at etail PR. I chose this bag out of the many that there were to choose from. This one just stood out to me, the cream colour is really feminine and the slight hint of coral  is a really nice touch. I think the colours really compliment eachother and together can make for a really smart, professional look, in this case with the bag. This is the type of bag that i would take to work or to an important event, it's got such a classic look to it which is always an eyecatcher, block colours normally are. The bag is accessible easily with a zip fastening once the flap has been lifted up. There is a pocket in there for your phone, an extra pocket and a zip pocket. There isn't loads of room in the bag, but there is more than enough for a purse, phone and keys.
