Bloggers Hangout Fashion Week Party

Wednesday, 24 February 2016

Hey everyone,

On Monday I attended the Bloggers Hangout Fashion Week party in Shoreditch. I have been to a few fashion shows and after parties for London Fashion Week so I was excited to attend this particular one as it was during  the day. 

It was held at a small location in Hoxton where there were many amazing brand stalls. If you follow me on snapchat (@BhavnaNina) you might have already seen what it was like.

There were a lot of food brands there which was great for me as I have become a lot more health conscious in the last couple of months and I am therefore open to testing out new products to contribute to my healthy lifestyle. 

The brands that I enjoyed the most were definitely theproteindrinksco, Raw Gorilla, Pudology and Naturigin. I'll mention each of these brands in a lot more detail in upcoming posts but here is an overview:

Raw Gorilla offer grain free snacks that are as close to its natural state as possible. Everything is organic and offers so many nutritious ingredients like cacao and lucuma. I actually placed an order for their munchies on energise for life where they offer free delivery. Let me know if you'd like an in-depth review on these.

I was very intrigued by Naturigin because as a person who dyes her hair at home, though I use ammonia-free hair dye, there are still chemical ingredients that are damaging and cause a strong unpleasant smell. Naturigin offers hair dyes with all natural ingredients so I am excited to give it a try.

The Protein Drinks Co are a relatively new company taking on the big global brands with their UFit protein drinks. I spoke to Huw who is the sales director there and he said how one drink is equivalent to three eggs or a small chicken breast which left me curious to find out more.

I hope you enjoyed this post. I am hoping to include a lot more health & food posts on my blog so keep an eye out for them.

Barry M Spring Launch 2016

Wednesday, 3 February 2016

Hey Everyone,

Last Friday I was fortunate enough to go to the Barry M Spring launch at the beautiful St Martins Lane Hotel. They've released quite a few new products for the Spring along with a new 2016 face of the brand which is Lucy Mecklenburgh.

I have always loved Barry M products, especially their nail polishes as I think they are the best on the market. They are going to release a few new Gelly Hi Shines, Speedy Quick Dry and a completely new gel type polish called Daylight Curing which I am super excited to try out.

At the event we got the opportunity to get our nails done and I got mine done by nailsbymets - who was absolutely amazing! I chose the shade 'Butterscotch Sundae' from the Gelly Hi Shine range.

As well as the new Spring collection of nail polishes, Barry M have also come out with some new makeup bits. The 'That's How I Roll' Mascara is specifically designed to lift and curl lashes - I'm excited to try this as I have very thick lashes that tend to stick to each other so I'm keen to see if this will do the job.

They also released a darker shade in their popular chisel cheek contour palette. I have tried this out since receiving it and I think its amazing. I will have a video up soon of me using it so I'll link it here when it's on my YouTube channel.

Another new release is their Shape & Define Brow Kit, which now comes in a lighter colour, this will work amazing with fairer complexions and/or those with lighter hair.

What product are you most excited to try out from the Barry M Spring 2016 collection? Let me know in the comments below!
