TOWIE star, Samantha Faiers‘ recent debut of ‘La Bella’, is already proving to be a huge hit. With it becoming number 1 celebrity fragrance launch of 2014, it has topped the likes of One Direction and Britney, in just 3 weeks! (Wowza!). One of the exceptionally exciting aspects to interning at Grabble, mean’t that attending events, press days and being in the know, in regards to the latest Fashion and Beauty news, were key to networking opportunities and exciting Blog content for them. As a result, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend some, with the Sam Faiers ‘La Bella’ launch, being one of my first!

I adore an ever growing fragrance collection, and I also love the ever so humble lady behind my new favourite! Samantha Faiers has been known for her elegant and eye-catching style, which is another reason why I’m a huge fan, but I’m also now very aware of her professional and sweet natured approach, to whatever she seems to puts her hand too! Whilst attending the ‘La Bella’ launch, I was able to speak with not only Sam’s PR team about the work that’s gone into the fragrance, but Sam herself! It’s reassuring to me and I’m sure many others, knowing that Sam was fully involved in every process of ‘La Bella’, and wasn’t just another Celeb to put her name on a product.

The fragrance itself is genuinely delicious! I was fortunate enough to be given a bottle as part of a thank you goodie bag, and I have been wearing it every day! The scent evokes a fresh balance of sweet and musky tones, with a very feminine approach to the overall composition and packaging. The bottle oozes glamour, and every element, from the font – to the pop of the lid, is elegantly done! To me, it’s also a fragrance that’s very versatile according to occasion, and could suit all ages, as I took ‘La Bella’ home to show my younger sister and mother, and they both loved it!

Have you tried ‘La Bella’ yet? If so, do let me know you’re thoughts! It’s available to purchase from The Fragrance Shop online and in stores. Congrats Sam and what a beautiful launch! See below for more images and links.

SS14 | Pretty in pastel

i2style

It isn’t often I wear a hue of blue, but today I dared to be different, well…sort of! This seasons pastel trend is huge, consequently, my interest in rocking an item of clothing, evoking this magnificent pastel tone, has rapidly grown throughout the past couple of months. I have had this pastel Blue coloured full length playsuit, just sitting in my wardrobe for almost a year now and was a lovely little find from Asos. I knew the structure of the outfit was enough to make a statement on its own, so I was quite pleased that the colour was so delicate, which I thought was very wearable.

In this post, I wanted to prove that paired with a paler complexion, it most certainly can be worn all year round. Most peoples perceptions of pastel colours, is one that is seen to suit more of a tanned skin tone. However, with some complimentary makeup, hair and accessories, anyone can wear it!

I hope to do many more Spring, Summer 2014 trend/outfit posts within the next coming weeks, so do let me know if there is anything in particular you would like to see me post/style up. I have really enjoyed creating this post for you style lovers, and look forward to making the most of the more perhaps un-loved items with my wardrobe, as I know there are some treasures in there, I just have to delve rather deep :).

What are your favourite pastel colours? Leave me links, i’d love to see your outfits too.

Bloggers Love Fashion week | No.1 Leicester Square

Hello beauties! How are we?

I wanted to write this post to let you know about a blogging event I attended in London, Leicester Square…No.1 to be precise! The incredible Danielle from Bloggers Love (check out @Bloggers_Love on Twitter), hosts and organises events every month, and last month was a very exciting one. The first ever Bloggers Fashion Week came to London, accompanied by some spectacular Beauty & Fashion Brands.

I only managed to get down to London for one of the days, which was the last one and from what I could gather, was the most Beauty orientated day, which being a Fashion & Beauty lover, suited me down to the ground. Some of these oh so talented Beauty Brands that showcased their latest ranges, skills and creative work included The Parlour, Umberto Giannini & HiBrow!

I met some fabulous ladies with terrific Style and Beauty advice and I felt rather privileged to be a part of such a buzzing and refreshing atmosphere. I went to the event with fellow Blogger Sophie, from Eskay Beauty. We also vlogged the event, as we both have new Youtube Channels, so if you’d like to go and check them out, please do! (My channel is hollysi2style, if you didn’t know already)!

My favourite part of the event was getting glittered up by the lovely ladies from The Palour! They focus on glitter Art, if you will, and they sure did make a statement with all that sparkle! I chose to go for a slightly gum metal piece, to match my monotoned, greyish outfit, and was very pleased with the result…I even went to Bella Italia sporting the fine glittered look, post event! :D. There was also a Catwalk show, Photo Booth with Motilo and photos on Marshmallows by Boomf! What more could you wish for, for a fun filled time with fellow Bloggers.

Sophie, from Eskay Beauty also had the opportunity to try out a new sensational way of gaining back a natural eyebrow, if you’re an over plucker’er or just suffer from the case of a patchy eyebrow. The talented lady demonstrating this used eyebrow extensions, and they were incredible! I helped sophie film some of the work she was carrying out on her brows and I must say, they looked mighty fine!

I met some terrific ladies that night and got to have a good chin wag with Bloggers who I’ve been meaning to do so with, for a good while now! Those included AJ O’dudu, Beth & Katie! (Click the names to link to their Blogs). I hope to bump into them again very soon.

I’d like to say a huge thank you and well done to Bloggers Love, for putting on a fantastic array of events so far! I can’t wait to attend more of them in the commencing future. Please see the images below for my OOTD and snaps from the event.

Big Loves,

Pucker up Princesses! Revlon’s Colourburst balm swatches

As an addition to my last post, as promised, I stated that I would show my latest lip product purchases in its true form upon the lips, so you can get a really good idea of the colour pigmentation and finish. I am so happy with all of them and can see these becoming a favourite of mine, when needing to whip one into my bag, in a rush!

I would wear all of these on different occasions, some are more night time appropriate than others, but I love that, as it gives me versatility to switch them up every now and again. So, below are the Revlon Colourburst Matte Lip Balms, swatched upon the lips. Let me know which one is your favourite colour, as I literally can’t choose! I’m really looking forward to the next coming months too, and hopefully the Sun will brighten my complexion, as I think these would look even more stunning with a sun kissed, natural glow!

Colours shown from top to bottom are – 215 | Shameless – 220 | Showy – 210 | Unapologetic – 245 | Audacious

P.s do excuse the little programme tabs up placed at the bottom of each image, I filmed this, then screen shotted and must have caught the names of the programme whilst doing so, oopsie :). Also there is one of the colours that I think I have left at work, but will be sure to post a pic whilst wearing it upon my twitter or instagram when I’ve re located it!

Big loves, Holly x

It’s a Revlon Colourburst occasion!

Hello you beautiful beings you! I do hope you’re enjoying your Monday so far and beginning the week feeling positive and motivated :D. I had a slight mad moment this weekend, just before I went to work infact, but before I try and justify to you & myself, why I decided to purchase not 1, not 3, but 5 of these stunning lip products…just take a moment to look at them!!! Ahh they just make me tremendously excitable and rather fuzzy inside, (and in the words of Sprinkle of Glitter)…I have all the feels ^.^.

My excuse for purchasing these fine matte balms, was that I was about to go to work, to work very very hard and continue to do so throughout the following week (as usual), so surely I deserved a little treat of lip lustrous goodness?…haha! These sensational lip products are a new favourite of mine, clearly! And, with Spring/Summer 2014 beauty products being thrown our way left, right and centre, I knew they’d not only be a great accompaniment for all the occasions I have coming up this year, but also with my SS14 wardrobe!

I know a lot of brands have jumped on this lip pen/balm bandwagon recently, yet for me, Revlon products just seem to ooze that essential quality and still manage to be at affordable drugstore prices. The colours I purchased were (from left to right) 225 in Sultry, 215 in Shameless, 220 in Showy, 210 Unapologetic and 245 in the colour Audacious. All of which are stunning! I’ve already worn 3 of them and it’s only Monday.

After I’ve used them a little longer and got a really good feel for them, I shall upload images of them on my lips, along with a full review. Although saying that, I am loving them so far! They even have a lip tingling, plumping sensation to them! Ooh lala. What lip products are you loving this season and have you got a favourite colour already? Leave me some comments and links below, i’d love to check them out! Don’t forget you can follow my blogging and other social media site ramblings in the right hand side bar >>>
