All Pinked Up For LFWEnd 2016

First of all, Happy New Month Everybody! Can't believe it's already march, how did February go by so quick.. At least we can call in winter because it's SPRING TIME!!!! Time to celebrate the brighter colours. Hopefully the weather acts accordingly, lol. 
Last week was a busy week for me, first I went to the Bloggers hangout and then it was London Fashion Weekend and the Professional Beauty Event. This post is only about my experience at the London Fashion Weekend. Before I get into details about the event, I will quickly tell you what I was wearing and why I chose this outfit and colour. 
I was an up & down deciding on an outfit, I ordered clothes, decided on another colour/material/shoes, returned clothes and finally completed my outfit Friday night and Saturday was the event, lol. Usually I'm not as indecisive when it comes to an outfit but looking though magazines, New York Fashion Week videos and discovering new trends made the decision not really easy. I'm not someone who usually wears pink clothes, that pink top was the only pink item I had in my closet to be honest, but looking at the revival of this colour totally made me fall in love with it! Let's take a moment and celebrate the 1920s pleated skirts, YAY! They're back, in all colours and lengths: mini, midi, midaxi, maxi, grey, pink, baby blue, silver and so on...  I personally love midi skirts, so I can wear them to every occasion and especially to work. I combined my pleated skirt with a shiny bomber jacket to to loosen the girly outfit to a more casual/girly outfit. That's why I also chose to carry my pink backpack instead of a clutch. As a finish, it was still a MUST to wear heels! 

Coming to the designer catwalk show, Nicholas Kirkwood presented his new collection and it was full of colour and extravagant styles! I would've bought every single item! The shoe designer has been award Accessories Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards and I can only underline that he deserved it! Below there's a little clip for you live from the catwalk show.

This time my friend and I really invested in a ticket to get the full LFWEnd experience and got access to a talk of the designer and to the Luxe Lounge for some champagne and networking. We spent quite some time there to speak about the show, had a few glasses and some snacks, took pictures and then went to see the rest of the designer clothes and cosmetics. A whole 3 floors of fashion, style and cosmetics! It was so much to look at.
I saw some amazing pieces and was inspired by how they were styled... Can't wait for the next season and new collections in stores.

Browsing though all the clothes, I just had to buy one of the designer pieces and I found a grey star sign sweater at Paper, which I will show you styled in a full outfit in my next post, but I just couldn't resist buying it since I've been wanting a sweater like that. Mission accomplished :)
I also got a little something at Maybelline. They had a great offer, two products for £10, so I had to take the chance and try out something new. My dear friend Tina recommended the Lip Pencil Colour Drama "Keep It Classy". I wore it yesterday and it lasted longer than expected. I never tried lip pencils before so I was surprised how well they stay on and I love dark pink or berry coloured lips. I also bought a brow crayon called "Brow Drama Pomade Crayon" in dark brown. I always have problems with my eyebrows and I know I'll never be satisfied, lol, so I'm trying out different ways of doing my brows by buying different products to see which one I like best and which one is the easiest to apply. So hopefully this crayon will upgrade my eyebrow game.
The Maybelline booth itself was very pretty decorated as usual and I loved their mirrored camera, where we took some pics. They're up on my Instagram.

Coming to the GOODIE BAG! YAY!
... or not so much. To be honest, I was a little disappointed of the goodie bag. The one I got last year was filed with more interesting products and as I purchased a Luxe ticket, I thought the goodie bag would have higher quality products. But anyways, I still liked the stuff!
There were 3 products that I especially liked such as the Garnier Anti Ageing Miracle Skin Cream. I always like trying out new products and I already like Garnier's body lotion, so why not try the moisturiser.
Opening the bag, the first thing I saw was the Pukka Supreme Matcha Green Tea: YAAASSSSS! This is my favourite green tea and my everyday companion at work. It is blended with three fairly-traded whole leaf greens: Chinese Sencha, Indian Oothu and Vietnamese Suoi Gang. It gives me a lot of energy and is 100% organic.
The last one is Urban Fruit's Cheeky Cherries. So far I have only tried mango slices from this brand but cherries are always a good idea and they taste deliciously juicy. They are perfect as a snack in between meals as they are low in calories and have no added sugars or preservatives. And also they are 1 of your 5 a day! So you basically can't do anything wrong with them. They have many different other fruits if you're keen for a new snack.

I hope you guys liked my story about LFWEnd and stay tuned for my next post!

Love, Drea
