Kurt Geiger and Vogue Magazine Summer Style Secret Garden Party Event

Looking forward to an evening of drinks, croquet, strawberry’s and shoes I headed up to London to attend the Kurt Geiger and Vogue Magazine Summer Style Secret Garden Party Event.

Despite myself imposed spending ban I was determined to buy myself something sexy with a high heel to make up for the yucky weather that we have been having recently.

Upon arrival I was greeted by a massive line of high heeled wearing stylish ladies waiting to get in.

Upon entry to the shop Croquet was being played and ladies were having their nails painted by Nails Inc. technicians
After browsing for a while we when down stairs to get some drinks.

What I saw down stairs was hardly surprising to me as I know that women love SHOES! Duh!

It was absolutely packed with women trying on shoes, asking for shoes, looking at shoes, buying shoes….

Slowly my intentions to buy slowly melted away, as I couldn’t find anywhere to sit and as the staff were working double time to serve every one and I just couldn’t catch their attention.
My shoe crushes 

Determined to not leave the empty handed I decided to redeem my Elle Magazine gift card purchasing a pink clutch bag and then purchased the matching purse taking advantage of the 25% discount that was on offer.

I later tried my luck getting my nails painted but as all of the appointment slots were taken up before I got in the shop that didn’t happen.
Me with my purchases 

Noticing that it was getting a bit late I quickly slipped out to Muji to buy some more acrylic drawers for my bath room
(I had to bite the bullet and admit that I needed more make-up storage I don’t know how I manage to accumulate so much cosmetics but the problem is bigger than me)

Anyways After slipping back I had chat with some fellow fashionistas then it was home time.

Goodie bags included polishes from Nails inc and diamante bracelets


Colour And Culture Celebrating 40 Years of Cosmetics a La Carte

Last night I was invited to attend COLOUR AND CULTURE hosted by  Cosmetics á la Carte and Pop PR at the gallery in London
Despite my leaving straight from work to attend the event when I drove past the venue it was so packed that I nearly punked out and went home…
Thank god I didn’t.

I am now going to hold my head down and admit that I had not heard of Cosmetics á la Carte before I received the invite for the event and did my research so going in I didn’t really know what to expect.

But I wasn’t disappointed.

I like the way the displays were laid out and  how they decorated the venue however as there was so much people there I didn’t get to interact with some of the exhibits the way I would have liked to 

(Not sure if people were meant to touch stuff but I sure wanted to)

I have to mention the bite sizes cupcakes!!

No1 Lounge Gatwick South Review

No1 Lounge Gatwick South Review

I have said it before love to travel hate to fly and

After waking up at the crack of dawn

sitting in rush hour traffic

lugging around heavy suitcases (That is probably my own fault)
Lining up for what seems like hours,
Take off and put back on your shoes a bunch of times
Answering a bunch of stupid questions from security,
Emptying out your hand bag for security to rifle through your stuff,


Hold your belly in while going to the x-ray machine (If I end up on passport patrol I want my stomach to look flat thanks)
and the walking … oh, the walking!
Unfortunately,  as I am neither rich, royalty or a celebrity so  I can’t avoid any of the above airport hassles
but I have to say that it after going through all that and before being cramped in a tiny seat for hours it's nice to be able to go somewhere nice and quiet
Have a bite to eat and perhaps a spot of tea while enjoying complimentary Wi-Fi and occasionally enjoying the panoramic runway views.
I make myself laugh

Pompous rambling aside the No.1 Gatwick is absolutely lovely
Providing an ideal haven from the airport hustle and bustle with nice comfy sofas and large windows that give lots of light and give the room a nice airy feel
A variety of magazines newspapers and  games are available to keep guests occupied until they wait to board their flights
 which for me was not necessary as they have free Wi-Fi!
They also offer complimentary hot and cold food such as pastry’s, fruits, porridges alongside a bistro-style menu as well as complimentary soft drinks and beers the fully-tended bar
(Champagne and cocktails cost extra)
and like I said earlier complimentary Wi-Fi!
No 1 Traveller also has lounges in the UK at Heathrow, Gatwick North, Gatwick South, Stansted and Birmingham from £27.50 per adult at reception, for up to three hours access (children £12.50 each), £22.50 if booked in advance (children £10).
