A week of events

So what a week it's been!  Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I'm very lucky to get invited to events, but this week saw 3 in one day, which was quite tiring :)  So here's what I got up to this week:

Lush (Weds evening)
Making face cleansers with Lush

Face masks at lush

The lovely people at Cardiff Lush treated us to a blogger evening where we made a lovely Catastrophe Cosmetic face cleanser which is jam packed with blueberries, lovely!  This is now sitting pretty in my fridge!  They also gave us a lovely goody bag with the new santa lip scrub in it, which by the way, smells amazing (cola bottles), and they gave us a sweet popcorn smelling face mask called Let the good times roll - supposed to be very good for hormonal breakouts.

Japonesque (Thursday lunchtime)

Japonesque goodies - eye shadow brush & face powder

This lovely brand has just opened up in Cardiff John Lewis, sitting right next to Estee Lauder.  A lot of people know them for their makeup brushes, but they've now ventured into makeup too (high end). For me, my favourite bit by far is the unique packaging, and when I say unique, I really mean that every single product is different from eachother.  When the palettes/blushers/powders etc are made, they have a gel that fills the lid, then people drop 3 different coloured inks into the lid (different colour schemes for each type of product), then it's set/baked to bring the colours out, which is why every lid is different.

Paul (celebrity makeup artist) was there to do our makeup, I opted for a lime green/brown combo for a pop of colour.  They're also linked to Kheils, so when I was there waiting for Paul to do my makeup, they gave me a mini facial.  The shadows seemed nice and pigmented, but sadly they don't have a primer, so the shadow's didn't pop on my lids (or last) quite as well as they could have done.  Each blogger that was invited for a makeover left with a couple of goodies (I had a translucent setting powder and an angled eyeshadow brush) and a face chart.

St Davids Christmas shopping event (Thurs evening)
UK bow ring

St Davids goodies

M&S goodies
This was just a little VIP event for the launch of the St Davids shopping evening.  A few other bloggers/press were invited to a little roped off area of the mall for flavoured vodka and little goody bags before the shopping commenced.  But, since I'm on a spending ban I didn't buy anything. Chantelle from Daizy Dayz and I sat around and waited for the next event, Vivienne Westwood.

Vivienne Westwood (Thurs evening)
The Winter line up

Vivienne Westwood shoes

Vivienne Westwood penis clutch

Next up we headed to the new-ish Vivienne Westwood shop in Cardiff, it's been open for a year now and is home to clothes, bags, jewellery and other accessories from the well known fashion house.

We were greeted and talked through some of the new pieces from the winter line, and offered champagne.  There were some really beautiful pieces in the shop, some lovely skull necklaces, beautiful bags, and I really fell in love with some of the scarves and shoes!  But, there was one line in particular that caught our attention, a range of.... penis jewellery... yes, you read that right, a pair of earrings with a penis and balls on, necklaces the same and a clutch bag (pictured) - VW likes to shock and be different, that we know, but I didn't expect that!

All in all and event filled week, the best part, as always, was catching up with other local bloggers, it's so lovely to sit and have a chat/coffee with them :)
