Autumn Ebay Favourites

Saturday, 25 October 2014 London, UK

Hello beauties! How are you all? So I'm really excited to do this post because there are so many gorgeous featured pieces from Ebay that are affordable. You'll probably not want me to write much & get straight to the point (haha) but honestly is that even possible in this case? Ok it is.. well everyone has been raving over these Asos boots that have completely sold it for weeks. They are a cross between the very popular cleated heel and over the knee boots trend which make walking and look sassy very easy! This pair from ebay costs only £9.26 compared to the £50 price tag (I have a pair ordered from a popular retailer as ebay don't stock my size). The rest of my favourites include a beige coatigan perfect for layering, a staple handbag and of course fashion bloggers some sunnies to look cool in your  blog posts. 

Not only are these great pieces for us ladies, but these are also great gift ideas for this Christmas. 
Will you be purchasing any of the items listed below?

Tea & Cake Press Day SS15

London, UK

Happy Saturday from me here in the UK! So, this week I headed down to a few press days in London on behalf of my brand and really loved what Tea & Cake PR had to offer. Now these photos are extracted from the Blogging Gals blog, but I loved the press day so much that I couldn't resist posting on here too! 
Myself and blogger buddy Alisha were shown around the show room in East London where we met the lovely pr team, spoke about the amazing brands including: Fanklin & Marshall, Havaianas, K-Swiss, Boxfresh, Keds, Puma Eyewear, Bjorn Borg, Esprit, Elle and the Charmont Group. To top that off we nibbled on some great treats including the red velvet cupcakes pictured below (mmmm)
You can find out what I thought of the SS15 collection on the Blogging Gals blog (post coming soon).

If you'd like more details about any of the items below - please just give me a comment so I can direct you to the correct website..Enjoy!

Zoella Beauty Review - Product Testing*

Tuesday, 21 October 2014 London, UK

Hi lovelies - how are you? 
It's been a busy start to the week here at Blogging Gals HQ but a great one! 
I have been sent this cute little Zoella beauty bag byBeauty Product Testing which honestly came at the right time (I was getting bored of my Ted Baker makeup bag)! It's so cute and doubles up as a pencil case - N'aww (so mummies Zoella's products are child friendly too). It fits all my daily essentials - foundation, contour kit, mascara, blusher and eye brow pencil and is also very well protected on the outside. 

Now Product Testing are often looking for beauty bloggers to send fabulous products to, so if you are lost for blog post ideas, I'd recommend signing up with them here

You can also purchase Zoella's range at Superdrug and Feel Unique

Review: Umberto Giannini - Mend My Hair Therapy (5 in 1 Hair Oil For Damaged Hair)

Thursday, 16 October 2014 London, UK

Hey beauties! 
Now you know how much I love my hair and when it comes to Autumn/Winter I am super protective over my tresses. I straighten my hair less, sometimes go months without altering my hairs natural texture and basically live in buns. As you know, I will rarely do single product reviews unless I love and recommend the product, so here we go.... 


I've been using the Mend My Hair 5 in one oil because my hair is dry and is prone to split ends (when I say split I mean split in about four different ways.. it's bad I know). No matter what I do, I will always have split ends.. I've previously cut them all out and they still come back to haunt me so I figure that's just the way my hair is - thick but fragile. Anyway I was gifted this product a while back and can honestly say this is one of my hair saviours! The oil has a very refreshing scent and does the following:
Strengthens & Repairs: As mentioned previously my hair is very thick but very fragile. The Mend My Hair Therapy gives my hair the moisture it needs helping it strengthen through a variety of styles my hair goes through. 
Smoothes & Softens: Yes! I can vouch for this, this products makes my hair more manageable. To all my natural afro hair sistas/curly haired girls .. you definitely need this! 
Conceals Split Ends: I actually did a little test on a split end and it did conceal one split strand of hair (only ones with tiny splits though).
Tames & Controls: I've answered this above ;) I have Lion hair so if it tames mine, it'll tame yours too!
Adds Shine: I love a little shine to my hair as it promotes health! When I put my hair in buns I make sure the front and back of my hair and the bun itself is also oiled as these are the parts exposed. 


You can purchase the product from Boots here

What's your favourite hair product at the moment?

Chic On The Go

Wednesday, 15 October 2014 London, UK

Calling all the busy ladies around the world.. yes you! Do you ever feel like you're always on the run (not from the popo) but always doing something even on your day off? Yes that's me too! It is annoying, especially when all you want to do is rest - but life sometimes just isn't that easy.
The contents below will have you looking stylish & perked up just within a few minutes! 


I'm loving these Primark shoes bought just a few weeks ago for only £8.00, a true bargain paired with  skinny jeans - these are great for those who want to feel stylish and comfortable at the same time. 


I love this lipstick from Colour Chase Cosmetics - they have some of the best lipsticks around and in a large selection of colours. As we steadily fall into fall, this shade I can say is definitely on trend and will have your lips looking full and luscious throughout the day. 
This is in the shade Divine and can be purchased here I have a full review of some of these lipsticks coming soon! 



Are you bold or more laid back? Leighton Denny have a variety of nail polishes to suit different skin tones and personalities.
Left - Plush Pink
Right - Supermodel 

So there you have it a pair of cute shoes, an on trend lipstick and colourful nail varnishes that can be styled with a variety of outfits whether you're on the go or heading to somewhere special!

Pretty In Pink

Sunday, 12 October 2014 London, UK

Happy Sunday here from me in the UK! 
I was gifted this beautiful two piece a few weeks ago by a brand based in Scotland called Glam Drawer, who offer celebrity style clothing at affordable prices. 

In all honesty, I love this two piece but for a special occasion I would have a totally different look -  hair down, high heels, perhaps no jacket and waaaaay more makeup. 

This two piece is actually a size Medium with lots of room so I definitely think I could squeeze into a size small next time especially on my bust. You can buy the two piece here or you can have a look at the rest of the collection here




Two Piece Set - Glam Drawer
Jacket - H & M
Shoes - New Look
