Olympia Beauty and London Fashion Weekend



I’ve been tired!
Sunday I was up at the crack of dawn… Ok about 6.00am then I went back to sleep lol
After staring at my wardrobe for what seemed like an eternity I finally decided on an outfit and was ready to leave the house to peek up my friends at 8.20 only 40 minutes later than I had told everyone that I would be leaving.

Achica Luxury goods for affordable prices


The thing I like about sales is getting great items at cheap prices but I left the house and all the pushing around can be a pain.
During London Fashion Week I revived some info about Achica and decided to give it a little look see since Christmas is soon approaching.

Achica is a members only luxury lifestyle website which offers members access to private sales of luxury brands at stupidly low prices!

There are new offers 6 days a week featuring everything from kitchen utensils to high-end holidays and prices start from as little as £5.

The only downside is once its gone its gone so you have to get in there quick, but doesn’t that a make your victory even sweeter?

I brought The Scottish Soapworks Lavender Pamper Set for my self as a “well done for surviving London Fashion Week gift”

The set includes:
Set includes:
1 x 140g Soap bar
1 x 100ml Bubble bath
1 x 30g Hand and body cream
1 x 15g Lip balm

and at £9.99 I don’t have to feel guilty about indulging myself.

Here are some of my fave products


Bell & Barker Shoe Bed £49.00
How cute is this?

London Fashion Week SS13 Day Three


Sunday sigh

After a nice lie in and a leisurely breakfast it was back to London for another day of fashion.

 

After missing my train (Don’t I always) I was finally on route to Somerset house. While going over my schedule I was happy to see that I only had one show to go to Ekaterina Kukhareva SS13 catwalk show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout . I also had arranged to go to the Fashion Monitor Style Lounge and then spend the rest of the day checking out the exhibitions  and taking pictures.

I really enjoyed the Ekaterina Kukhareva catwalk show, with what  interpreted as a kind of 60’s Valley Of The Dolls theme with big prints and bright colours. In a whole the collection was very girly and fun.


 

After the show I decided to grab a glass of champagne at the International Reception and check out the work of some of the designers.




 

After that I went down to the Rimmel Bloggers Suite to get my nails done and have a chat with the girls.



 

FYI they had the best smoked salmon sandwiched.


 

I am happy to announced that I managed to get one of their awesome goodie bags to give away on my blog!!

 

I am not going into the contents yet but all you have to do is check out the tweets o get an idea of how good they are!

 

What I will say is make sure you like my FB page and follow me on twitter because that is where I will be announcing the prize draw.

 

Anyways

 

After chatting the ear of the makeup artists in the Rimmel lounge I then went to the Fashion Monitor Style Lounge.

The Fashion Monitor was really lovely, on offer were Manicures, Pedicures, eyelash extensions, massages, make over’s and hair styling

 

While there I was introduced to an amazing bag company and a Jewellery company who I will blog about in  separate posts once I do some more research.

 


I was also reintroduced to Upper Street which is an amazing shoe company which allows its customers to design their shoes from scratch.

I checked out there website a few years ago with the intention but can’t remember why I dint make a purchase. However many more styles and choices have been added to the site since then and they are currently in the process of launching a iPad app which will hopefully launch in October.

Unfortunately my friend that I was with lost her phone so we ran up to report it stolen and arrange for a new one which ended up being a bit of a process but reminded me to enquire about the Iphone 5 with my mobile phone service provider.

After that we decided to call it a day and do home.

 
Oh MY!! Nearly forgot to mention what was in my Fashion Monitor Goodie bag...........................................

Glossybox!!

If you follow my blog you will know that I already subscribe to and love Glossybox, This box was a London Fashion Week themed box and the design is different.

 

London Fashion Week SS13 Glossybox review to come soon promise.

London Fashion Week SS13 Day Two Part Deuxe






While putting my phone on charge in the Press Lounge we decided to go and visit the Rimmel London’s exclusive Blogging suite.
 
I was meant to visit the suite last season but with all the running up and down I was doing it totally slipped my mind.

But today I was determined and ended up being so glad that I went.

The suite was held in a swank hotel and there were Makeup artists, and nail artist on hand offering beauty treatments.
Sherry's Nails

There was also lovely food and champagne and the most exciting part....
 
Goodie Bags!!

As I had a bit of time between shows I had a bite to eat, had my make up touched up and chatted with the make-up artists and some other bloggers.
Classy lol
I to say that I was so impressed with the Rimmel goodie bags but came to the realization that along with the products I received from MAC storing them would be a madness and realistic action would have to be taken.

As my next show was at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout in Covent Garden I decided deviate from my entourage and make a quick detour to MUJU to get this Kardashians style Acrylic Box with 2 Drawers and Flip-Top Lid
 
(I have wanted this for AGES!!)

I also picked up a cup thingy for my eye pencils.

I also quickly popped my head in to the Russell and Bromley to say hi and use the loos before legging it to VFS to try and catch my show.


Unfortunately time was not on my side so I went to a local cafe for a spot of tea while I waited for my friends to come out.
Waiting for my friends to some out and play with me

 
Of course when they came out they told me how great the show was.

Oh well my all my cosmetics are going to be looking good in my new acrylic boxes tonight.

Looking good but I still need more storage...Haven't even unpacked my new products yet!

Antoni and Alison New Work SS13 collection


I was happy get an invite to this show as I really enjoyed their collection last season.

I must admit I got the wrong end of the stick when I read the name of the collection

NEW WORK

"Great I need to update my work image" I thought thinking I was going to see a work wear inspired collection

LOL silly rabbit

The name of the collection was influenced by the designers celebrating their 25th anniversary and their desire to continue coming up with innovative creative pieces or "New Work"

The collection was a great start to a gloomy Friday morning.

Guests were treated to a drum band which played throughout the show which consisted of

Shift dresses in various lengths and styles floating down the catwalk
 
adorned with mouth watering colourful prints all hand painted in the following mediums:
 

Painted brush marks

Mixed acrylics

Ink drawings

Dark abstracts

Spray can gestures

Charcoal smudges on cartridge paper

sharp HB pencil lines

Necessary sparkle and gold leaf

Black felt tip pen


I absolutely loved this collection as I found it to be very wearable and the colours fun and interesting

For their actual birthday, Friday 19th October 2012 the Victoria Albert Museum have asked Antoni and Alison to give a one off lecture about their work. This will be the only time that they offer an explanation about their work so I hope I am able to attend.

London Fashion Week Day One


 

Gloomy day for fashion, with threats of rain but who cares its London Fashion Week!

Despite all my prep last night I manage to forget to charge my camera DOH!! oh wells I will take as much pics as I can while I can.

I also brought the wrong kind of memory card to use on the press laptops :(

Well there is something I can do about that. As soon as I get a free period I intend to pop to the shops to buy a new one.

I will try to do as much updates as I can throughout the week but until I cop an SD card hey will be a bit boring and without pictures.

Got through registration without a hitch however I noticed a few differences this year such as there are no longer computers for press to use in the registration area (The few in the press lounge have issues)

My 1st show of the day was Antoni and Alison and was titled New Work.

I love the cute little titles they use.

Last season it was Models walking up and down in dresses.
Cheese from the MAC press lounge
Reviews and pictures to come.
