Weekend Post: April Favourites (video), ChitChat and Blogger Events

It’s been a minute since I wrote a little update post but that’s mainly because nothing exciting has been happening per say. First off, can we have a resounding hallelujah for the lovely Sun that has been gracing London (and UK in general) with an exception to this weekend? When I lived back in Nigeria, I always took the lovely weather, sun and free vitamin D for granted. Now, it’s somewhat of a luxury and I always rejoice when the sun is out. Of course, the sun being out means two things; taking blog photos and taking walks around my area. Although the weather is very sunny, it is still windy and a little bit nippy especially in the morning and evenings.

I popped over to Scotland a few weeks ago and it’s one of my favourite places to go to. I love going to Scotland for many reasons but the top on my list is seeing the BF (of course) and going through Duty Free. I always treat myself to one beauty item (usually from MAC). The last time I got myself the MAC 217 Blending Brush//Review here (the Queen of all Blending Brushes) and this time I got myself MAC’s Fluid Eyeliner Gel in Dip Down. It has seriously changed my eyebrow game and now I waste less time in the morning doing my brows. I freaking love it and I am inspired to now try the Anastasia Brow Gel soon.

I have been getting a few invites to attend some blogger events but I have sadly had to turn them down because of work commitments. It’s not like I can’t take time off work but I do have some tight deadlines to meet so that would be counter productive. Besides, my blog is still my hobby (and baby) and my work/career comes first so I have to give both of these passions as much energy/passion as I can. Anyway, I was pleased to attend a Rakuten Symposium held in London where I met other lovely bloggers and brands. I was lucky to have lunch with the lovely ladies from Molton Brown alongside other amazing bloggers.

I was kindly gifted with some luxe Molton Brown goodies from their Pomegranate and Ginger range*, Delicious Rhubarb and Rose range* as well as their Ginger Lily range*. I will be reviewing and sharing my thoughts on these products once I've had a chance to use them all. There were also other brands in the event such as Reiss, FarFetch, MyTheresa, Clinique, etc. I got other lovely products in the goodie bags  but the one that stood out to me was this lovely leather plaited choker/necklace from Reiss. It really captures the 90's vibe amazingly well.

It's really lovely attending bloggers' events because you get to meet other bloggers who understand what blogging entails. I would make an effort to attend more when I can. I have one or two lined up in May which is exciting. I decided to finally make a business card for my blog because I always get asked for one when I go to blogging events. I made mine via Moo.com which was pretty inexpensive (I think £15 for 50 including delivery) and I do like the quality. It's such an easy service to use and delivery was very fast which I was pleased with. Most importantly, it came with this nice card holder/box which is such a neat way to store your cards and other cards you have because it has a little separator inside. They currently have 25% off all their designs till April 29th here and I feel incredibly jealous that it was not available when I placed my order.

What else? Ohhhh, I have been trying so many new products lately so expect a nice long haul. Most of the items are drug store brands who, by the way, are really doing it for me. I would be posting a few Spring Themed blog posts and some series including the photography series which continues tomorrow.  I went in to Superdrug and Boots to see what Spring launches had arrived  and I was very impressed with a few brands like Barry M and Collection. I would leave you with my April Favourites here. There is a direct link to the video here and you can watch it below. You can subscribe to my channel here so you don't miss a video as I sometimes forget to post on here.

That's pretty much all! I hope you have enjoyed this little update/chitchat and I would see you in my next post as always. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and don't forget to enter the La Roche Posay Giveaway over here if you have not entered...xx
