Bloggers Hangout- The Bloggers Summer Hangout Event Review


My years have flown by!

It feels like only yesterday I attended my 1st Bloggers Hangout event well if I remember correctly it was also their first event, back in 2013 when they went by the name Bloggers Love and most of their events were held at Penthouse nightclub in central London.


I have always happy to attend Bloggers Hangout event because they are a great to network with both brands and other bloggers.


To celebrate their third birthday Bloggers Hangout hosted the Bloggers Summer Hangout at the Strand Gallery over three days (Three days three years get it?)

Unfortunately my schedule only permitted me to come down on the final day but I am more than glad I did.

Pride was also on the same day so the streets were buzzing with excitement and rainbow coloured banners and flags.

I have no idea what the British weather had in mind there was rain and thunder but yet humid and warm.

Not to worry Cocktail Mania were on hand with refreshing slushy drinks.




On the invitation there seemed to be more brands on the other days which were weekdays but the offering was still great


Sass and Bell

I was not familiar with this brand but I fell in love with their wonderfully kitsch offerings. As a recent home owner I initially planned to be grown up and sophisticated but if I’m honest I’m still a kid at heart, I love pink and fun girls things and I’m not ashamed of it.

Hell sometimes your d├ęcor calls for a light up cactus or a novelty pineapple.

I will defiantly be purchasing items from Sass and Bell in the future.



T-tox  



Ok now I swear down I’m not lying..

On route to the event health freak Celetia actually said “I hope there is a tea company at this event”

Hand on my heart!

So when I saw T-tox I had to laugh.

T-tox is a Matcha powder green tea mixed with healthy goodness (Right up Celetia’s ally) I tried the energise tea which was mixed with water which was actually quite pleasant and really refreshing. Defiantly something I can add to my morning smoothie to give me a little pep in my step.








Dinki Belle Nail Wraps
The words everything happens for a reason came into my mind when I introduced myself to Dinki Bell because my nails looked JANK!

Even though I only recently had a manicure typing and my daily vice of soaking my aching muscles in a hot bath at the end of the day means that my nail varnish rarely lasts as long as it should.
And I’m also super impatient and fidgety which often results in my nail varnish getting smudged before it has a chance to dry properly.
But it is looking like Dinki Belle Nail Wraps could be my savour, I have been aware of nail wraps for a while now but never got around to trying them out, Dinki Belle has so many lovely designs. I chose the Marble effect nails wraps which to give my nails a luxe vibe. Each pack comes with 20 nail wraps and lasts up to 14 days hopefully even I can’t mess them up!




Pink Parcel


I was actually introduced to Pink Parcel last year at another Bloggers Hang Out event and reviewed them for my blog

And since then ever month I curse myself for never getting around to setting up a subscription with them.

After a talk about the brand

Walk Your Way To Weight Loss


 When was the last time you went for a walk?

Sounds like a silly question doesn’t it?
But really when was the last time you went for a walk?

How about you estimate how many steps you do in a day?

I bet whatever numbers you come up with is not even close to the real number.

According to the NHS A person can burn around 400 calories by walking 10,000 steps briskly (3-5mph) and I figured I couldn’t be too far froom that number boy was I wrong…

the average Briton walks between 3,000 and 4,000 steps a day but I have to admit some days I do way less than that (Hey I’m a driver).
As the weather is finally getting nicer why not try going our side and stretching your legs even if you do not achieve 10,000 steps a day the added movement is only going to help and unlike costly gym memberships walking will only cost you your time.

Plus walking can also be therapeutic giving you the opportunity to download your thoughts and feelings or you could come up with your next great idea. 

I know we are all so busy and fitting a walk into you day can seem impossible but believe me there are ways to sneak some extra steps into your daily your routine
    Get off the bus early and walk the rest of the way home or to work
    Walk to the station instead of taking the car or bus
    Take the stairs instead of the lift, or walk up escalators
    Invest in a shopping trolley and shop locally if you can
    Walk the children to school instead of driving


   
Tips for getting the most from you walk 
Find a walking partner, so you have someone to chat to as you walk or join a walking group
Get an MP3 player and listen to your favorite music or podcasts as you go Or even a book on tape I recently finished the Game of Thrones and have just started A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin which makes me look forward to going on my walks.
    Plan interesting walks or alternate your route so you don't get bored Invest in good shoes. Since these are the only expense and equipment you'll need, pay attention to the fit and quality of your shoes. 

 Always warm up by walking at a slow or normal walking pace for five minutes before picking up the tempo of your workout. 
 Pay attention to your heart rate and breathing. 

Walk at a pace that challenges you and elevates your heart rate, but don't overdo. You should be able to talk and carry on a conversation while you are exercising; if you can't, you may be working too hard. 
 Use good walking posture. maintaining the following posture when exercise walking: Swing your arms. Keep your head up, back straight, and abdomen flat. Point your toes straight ahead. Take long strides, but don't strain. 

 Consider getting a pedometer or a smart phone app to track the distance you've walked or the number of steps you've taken. Watching your improvement over time is a terrific source of motivation. 

 Be sure to carry water if you're walking long distances or are exercising in hot weather and if it is especially hot don't forget to wear a hat with a brim and to apply sunscreen to exposed areas.

How many steps do you estimate you walk a day?

Naturigin Permanent Hair Colour Dye

I have been on my natural hair journey for a few years now however my neutral hair colour is an off black brown colour that can only be described with one word blah!
I used to religiously dye my hair jet black but that along with having a relaxer, daily heat styling and the medication it take for Lupus my hair was in awful condition and now that I am rocking a healthy head of hair I am reluctant to use any chemicals.

A few months ago attended Bloggers Fashion week hosted by Bloggers Hangout where I was introduced to the guys from NATURIGIN and introduced to the NATURIGIN Permanent Hair Dye
many products are in the picture
Naturigin permanent Dye

The NATURIGIN hair dyes are non-permanent doesn’t contain PPD(P-phenylenediamine), Ammonia, Resorcinol or Peroxide so I thought why not give it a try.
I opted for Black 2.0


The Process was simple enough, the kit contained the following:
Colour Cream (A)
Activator (B)
After Colour Treatment (C)
Safety Gloves (D)



I simply added the contents of the Colour Cream (A) into the Activator squeezy bottle (B) shock the bottle to mix it up.

I then applied all the mixture from the Activator bottle to my hair starting on the hair roots and working towards the ends.

When my hair was coated in the mixture I then massaged it into my hair and the scalp, before covering it with a shower cap to let it work in

Talking about instructions
The instructions said to leave in for 30 mins but I gave it an extra 10 minutes as my hair doesn’t take dye very well.

After this I washed the dye out of my hair I applied the content of the After Colour Treatment (C) to my hair and massaged gently for 2 minutes and then rinsed it out.

I then followed with my fave conditioner.

The result was a very natural dark colour, I wouldn’t necessarily describe to as jet black bit I was totally happy with the results

Asking question about hair dye

Have you tried any NATURIGIN products before?
