Sorry for the lack of posting over the past few months everyone!
Thank you to all those who still support my blog and follow/subscribe on all of my channels and social media!
I’ve been up to a LOT blog wise recently, but I thought the best way to kick start this blog again was to share some great moments from the Olympia Beauty Show and Beauty Blogger Awards 2015 which I attended last weekend.
It was so great to meet other bloggers from different backgrounds and to hear about all of their accomplishments. Whilst blogging can indeed be competitive, we tend to forget that our strength as Bloggers comes from supporting and collaborating with one another (I think that also applies to every other aspect of life too!)
I found it so awesome to witness women who had started viral movements and campaigns from their bedrooms get up on the stage and collect awards. It was also so inspiring to see @VanityVenom up on the stage with NYX cosmetics talking about her journey in the beauty world! For those who don’t know, she’s a very talented self taught makeup artist who has received global recognition from winning the NYX Face Awards UK 2015.
The workshops hosted by both brands and bloggers alike inspired me so much and made me really think about how much more I could be pushing myself as a Blogger. There are so many people who have spent time reading my blog posts and watching my tutorials……surely I owe it to them to be producing the most awesome content I can consistently?!
I came away from the event with a new found gusto for blogging and a desire to be the very best version of myself that I possibly can be!
I thoroughly recommend that all Bloggers out there attend the Olympia Beauty Show and Beauty Blogger Awards next year……there were too many gold dust tips and jaw-dropping discounts floating around to miss out on!
Just to give you an idea of how action packed my day was…..here are some snippets!
What’s In My Goodie Bags?
Because I knew you’d all wonder 😉
There were some very exciting brands sponsoring this event, and they made a lot of effort to make us bloggers feel welcome and appreciated.
I was soooooo excited to receive some NYX products….perfect for trying out some make up looks for you all! (All of these can be seen on my Instagram profile @MissJadeReynolds)
I also purchased a fair few products myself as the discounts were just too good to ignore! Check out this gorgeous lip gloss that I picked up from British brand Kiss Cosmetics!
I’ve never been a particular fan of purple lips before……however in my mind, I can imagine this colour would look awesome with a sexy feline flick eyeliner, some strobing and a curly updo 😉 (tweet me if you’d want to see me attempt a tutorial on this look….@TheCurlyCockney)
This event is so exciting and educational for both aspiring and established bloggers alike! I’m going to make sure that I attend many more events like this in 2016 and I encourage all of my readers and blogger friends to keep this particular event in their diaries too!
As always….thanks for reading and showing my blog some love!
