VIB Event March 2014


Hope you've had a good week! I had a rather long busy week but managed to squeeze in a few blogger events, #blogger. As you are all aware, Bloggers_Love had their London Fashion Week events in central London. I was kindly invited to come along as a VIB! I was unable to attend Tuesday’s event (Mad Hatter’s Tea Party) as I had university and work commitments but I surely made it to the other two events on Monday and Wednesday! The events were fun and exceptionally organized! Everyone looked amazing (as always) and it was a great way to bond with other bloggers who blog about similar subjects!I definitely recommend signing up for a pass to the blogger London events. One is coming up pretty soon!


Oh hiya!

The VIB’s (chosen 30 bloggers) had the pleasure to network and get to know each other from 4-6pm. It was filled of exciting meet and greets moments! We all had the chance to make our desired ring from scratch. The picture below doesn’t do it justice, but I promise you it was fun! I love stars so I added a small cute star in the middle!

After this session, we all had the chance to go around the room and were kindly given a lot of products to take home and try out! Our personalized goodies were adorable and can’t wait to review them! I was able to have a conversation with each group about their own products and it was nice to be appreciated as a blogger and have them interested too! I met so many other bloggers who I follow on social sites and it was lovely to meet them all in person! Everyone has their own individual style and personal likes and this showed at the events. I love checking out what others wear and where they shop! To top off each event, there was a fashion event from 7pm onwards, there were many beautiful dresses I fell in love with! I was impressed.

Amazing collection! Check it out!

I can't wait to purchase some of their lingerie

Wednesday. What an event! Headmasters hair stylists were incredible. They changed my straight (ish) hair into a HUGE curly bob! A lot of heads turned and many bloggers snapped up for a picture, so I can’t wait to see all the professional pictures from the night! I actually wish the hairstyle was permanent as many people have always said big curly hair suits me. I learned a few helpful hair care tips from the pros and how to style better!

Next, I had extensions done to my eyebrows and was given a lot of beauty tips from the professionals. Again these tips were useful! There were a lot of products given to me to try out, and again thankful for them as they will definitely come in great use! The evening was full of laughs and it was great to bump into one of my friends Daniel! I am lucky enough to have a wide group of people I already know from other events so it was great to catch up with them and also meet new ones! Me and my girlies took some cheeky snaps... Yes, I was a bit hyper for some reason so excuse the funny poses..


I saw this post on a few blogs.. So I thought to go ahead and fill it in! Have a read if you want to be nosy.. ;)
1. What are you wearing?

White top and jumper which says “pretty young thing” with light blue jeans and my converse.. (so glam)

2. Have you ever been in love?

Yes. It was an incredible feeling. Words can’t describe having someone who loves you for you and makes you happy all the time!

3. Have you ever had a terrible break up?

I have had a traumatic experience which circulates around a past relationship, so yup.  It was hard to break it off, but I am a lot happier.. Breakups are hard, but you have do what is right!

4. How tall are you?

Hmm 5ft'5 just average height for someone my age!

5. How much do you weigh?

I don’t know! Bit too personal..

6. Any tattoos?

No, for work reasons I can’t get one. Boo!

7. Any piercings?

6.. how naughty! I have a helix on the right with three normal ones, one tragus on the right and three small ones.. I am planning on another tragus and one more... My parents don’t like them! Oh well.

8. You OTP? (one true pairing)

Celeb wise: I wish someday to have a relationship like beyonce and jay z. They are the definition of a real relationship; they both compliment each other and support each other. Oh and their daughter is so adorable. My grandma (dad’s mother) and granddad (who passed away when I was 5) were together since they first met, had 9 children and the best life. True love exists.

9. Your favourite show?

How I met your mother, Revenge, Hollyoaks, Big bang theory, celeb juice. That’s all. I don’t watch tv a lot tbh!

10. Favourite Band?

I love arctic monkeys, one republic, bastille, too many to name! Few fav artists right now are Jhene and Childish gambino..

11. Something you miss?

Kinda missing my phone charger as I have 5%..

12. Favourite Song?

"All of me" John Legend  This will be my wedding song. So beautiful!
..Favourite song right now Deeper by Ella Eyre..means something to me..  and but I love Jessie War's songs..  (The Fray) You Found Me..  Thinkin’ Bout you FT O.N.E (Bastille), Fix You (Coldplay), Close (Kings of Leon), Beautiful (Miguel), Help Me Lose My Mind Ft London Grammar (Disclosure) are some of the ones I can think of right now..
13. How old are you?

21. Getting old.. but compared to my friends (majority are older than me) I am “SO young” (Lol)

14. What zodiac sign are you?


15. Qualities you look for in a partner?
Trust- Without trust, there is no relationship.  Communication- If I am in a position where I do not know where I stand, I will move on.  I am an adult and don’t do games! Respectful- Towards me, themselves and everyone else. Passion and ambition. If you don’t have a passion for life then we can’t get along. Ambition is sexy. I work hard towards my goals and so you should too. Down to earth- Too much ego is a turn off!!! Believe it or not, unlike most other young women I do go for personality over looks, (psychical attraction and chemistry is a must) Someone I can be myself with and always make me happy. I observe how you treat me and yourself..

16. Favourite Quotes?

'Everything happens for a reason'. Someday I will accept the reason behind the lows in my life, but I know every turn will benefit me in the future. Some things are truly a blessing in disguise although I find it hard to find a reason in some situations!
“Be the type of person you want to meet”   Self explanatory..
“Appreciate good people they are hard to come by”.  I’ve met a hell of a lot of people and can safely say the ones in my life are amazing!
“One day someone is going to hug you so tight that all of your broken pieces will stick back together”

17. Favourite Actor?
Leonardo DiCaprio and Ryan Reynolds.. Two beautiful men.. shame they are taken!

18. Favourite colour?

I don’t have one.. I like red, blues and black. 

19. Loud music or soft?

Depends on my mood. Loud most of the time. My housemates will agree too. Ha

20. Where do you go when you're sad?

The kitchen. Food is there.. and it makes me happy. Oh wow I sound fat.

21. How long does it take you to shower?

20 mintues? Maybe more?

22. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?

Uni wise.. after showering takes me 15 mintues minimum.. I don’t look glam going to uni, I don’t dress to impress ha. Majority of the time when I go out it takes me over 35 minutes. My eyebrows need to be perfect. Soz

23. Ever been in a physical fight?

No. (aint nobody got time for that)

24. Turn on?

I love a good sense of humour, great conversation, nice dress sense, someone who is caring and makes a huge effort to show they are interested.

25. Turn off?

Game playing, arrogance, people who think they are better than others, bad manners.. are a few! Ha

26. The reason you started blogging?
I have been reading blogs and just decided to start up when I was at university! People have pushed me to start one so I guess I have a lot of supporters in that aspect!

27. Fears?

Loosing the people close to me.. You really don’t know who will be there the next day, so I always make sure I keep in the contact with close ones and tell them I love them (soppy me)

I had the funniest experience a week ago. Cried of laughter.
