FABB Birmingham

I had the pleasure to attend #FabbBirmingham this weekend, and I'm so glad I went! If you haven't heard about the FABB events, they're blogger meetup/events that happen all over the UK. They're organized by Ray and Tor, who are a million times amazing for putting together these events. This was really fun, especially because there was a big focus on bloggers interacting with brands. I went with a few girls who I had met at the Birmingham Blogger Meetup last month, and it was so nice to see some familiar faces! I love how there's a little community in this big city, mainly because it's made moving to Birmingham a little less crazy. 

Anyway, click on the read more to see pictures from the event!

Milford Perk Diner

The boyfriend and I actually spent last weekend up in Pembrokeshire for a good country break, and it was great. We didn't get up to much, mostly catching up with old friends and enjoying a pint at his favourite pub. I had a huge craving for pancakes, and if you've ever been to Pembrokeshire, you'll know variety in food is not common. I can have an English Breakfast everywhere I go, but finding pancakes was a little difficult. We were recommended this lovely little dinner in Milford Haven - Milford Perk Diner.

Halloween Tutorial: The Skeleton

This is my favourite look so far! The boyfriend thought I looked proper creepy when I walked down the stairs, and I think I might actually do this on Halloween night. This is such an easy look to recreate, the only thing to remember is that it's not going to look perfect. All you need for this look is some white face paint (super easy to comes across this time of the year), black matte eyeshadow, and a black kohl pencil. That's it!

Clinique All About Shadow 8-Pan Palette

I'm pretty sure my life is being taken over by palettes. What is it about these that makes them so appealing? Is it the convenience? The beautiful shades that all go together? The beautiful cases that protects the shadows? Either way, I'm a palette-aholic. My latest addition is this gorgeous one from Clinique which holds eight beautiful, pigmented shades that are perfect for a day to day basis. These shadows are not too glittery, they blend seamlessly, and are very soft.

Halloween Tutorial: The Mime

If there's one thing that I love about October, it's Halloween. From the first of the month, I'm already planning my costume, what I'm going to do, what candy I'm going to eat. Yes, I love Halloween, and I'd be a little annoyed if everyone didn't share my enthusiasm. Last year, I actually did two ~Halloween-inspired looks, mainly out of me watching too many tutorials on Youtube and wanting to try them out. I did a zombie look, and a flower nymph look.
