Hello my lovelies!

It feels like it’s been a long time since I sat down and wrote a post what with being away for three weeks and trying to get back into the swing of things. I’ve really missed writing and I’ve got sooo much to write about/ fill you in on!

So, to start with I wanted to write about a fabulous event I had the privilege of being invited to yesterday; a ring design workshop at the GLITZBOX pop-up shop, hosted by the lovely ladies from The Workbench London. Some of you may remember GLITZBOX which is a company I have collaborated with in the past, I was lucky enough to sample one of their luxury jewellery subscription boxes which I reviewed both here and on my YouTube channel. I absolutely loved working with GLITZBOX and it’s lovely founder Tamsin, I loved the jewellery and was really impressed by the concept! So, when Tamsin invited me to this event at the GLITZBOX ‘pop-up shop’ in Shoreditch I was super excited to attend.

 

The brand itself is set up in a temporary shop in Old Street station, Tamsin is there every day this week until the 13th August (so get down there quick!!) with all their stunning jewellery on display, photobooths, fun and loads of instagrammable stuff. There are opportunities to buy or rent the jewellery so I highly recommend you get down there for a nosy if you can, but they are also hosting some fun events and I attended a ring making workshop which was hosted by Katie and Kirstie from The Workbench London. This brand and the lovely ladies who founded it was new to me but wow – I love the idea! Perfect for parties, events, hell anything with a group of girls involved, The Workbench London take groups and help you to design your very own ring! I wish I’d known about it when I was planning my hen! I won’t go into all the technical details (mainly because I had no clue what I was doing!) but essentially you carve a piece of jewellers wax into any ring shape you fancy, they go away and make it for you and two weeks later it turns up in the post! I’m in love with the idea of having my own ring which I designed from stratch and I literally cannot wait for it to arrive eek!

So, the event itself was fantastic and really well oragnised. I arrived at the pop-up in Old  Street which was beautifully decorated and complete with the obligatory blogger balloons and even branded meringues (not even kidding and yes they were delicious!). Tamsin was there to greet us and Katie and Kirstie had all the equipment for the workshop set up and ready to go.

 

It was lovely to meet and chat to some other bloggers and influencers while we were busy carving away our little pieces of blue wax over a glass of cava (!) and as it was a small group it was a really friendly atmosphere. The workshop itself took about two hours but it went so fast! I was pretty slow at carving but the girls from The Workbench were so patient and really good at talking me through it. They were also always there to help or answer any questions.

 

After the workshop we had an opportunity to browse the beautiful jewellery in the shop and chat some more before receiving the best goody bags I have ever had before (keep your eyes peeled on my youtube for an unboxing vid!). It was a fantastic afternoon and I really enjoyed myself, made extra soecial by the lovely and friendly ladies who run both GLITZBOX and The Workbench London. Thanks so much for having me and I can’t wait to see my ring!

Hey there lovelies!

Today I wanted to tell you about a very exciting launch event that I attended last week. I was absolutely delighted to be asked by Danielle, the lovely founder of ground breaking new skincare product OhMySkin (OMS) to attend the event as a model to demonstrate the product and tell the audience about how my skin felt afterwards. I was super excited about not only being invited to such a brilliant launch event but also to try a product I had heard so many amazing things about!

 

The launch night was held in Walton on Thames, at Bridgeman’s luxury furniture showroom; the perfect backdrop for such an elegant event. When I arrived I was blown away by how beautiful the set up looked and the amazing decorations. The product was displayed pride of place of course which looked absolutely fantastic.

 

 

So what is the product?

OhMySkin is a new and exciting skincare brand which has burst onto the scene with it’s revolutionary Exfoliating and Resurfacing Mask for all skin types. The unique formula contains natural ingredients and active enzymes which remove dead skin cells and brighten the skin in a non-harmful way without using any microbeads or acids which are so often found in high street products. The mask is really flexible in terms of use and can be applied and removed as a ‘flash mask’ or left on for half an hour. One of the things that I find so unique about the product is Danielle’s inspiring vision for it. She told her guests at the event that she came up with the idea when, when she was working full time, she didn’t have the time to attend salons for expensive exfoliation treatments; the idea of creating a product which can give you professional results in the comfort of your own home was born! If you think you’d miss the pampering aspect of a salon – Danielle has thought of that too! The mask is sold with a luxurious Derma Cloth to remove the mask and maximise results as well as a salon headband to pamper yourself! It also comes with a 10x magnifying mirror (yes – you heard that right! And believe me what I saw in there was pretty shocking!!) which is so important to really see your skin and identify problem areas, and then to follow your journey with OMS and see the results for yourself!

 

 

Also, how gorgeous is the branding?! I am in love with that amazing green colour. So eye catching.

 

What I thought

Using the product for the first time on the evening of the launch event I was genuinely so impressed with it for several reasons. Firstly, I have very sensitive skin and I often find that exfoliation masks feel slightly ‘stingy’ on my face but OMS was gentle and worked wonders for my sensitivity. The only sensation was a slight warming feel which was really nice. Danielle applied the mask to my skin during the event to demonstrate how easy it is to apply and lots of people commented how, as it was clear, you actually couldn’t tell I had it on! Having left the mask on for 30 minutes and spritzing it with water to reactivate the enzymes I washed the mask off using the Derma cloth. I was really impressed with this too, the cloth is a really interesting texture which has a thick weave to it, it’s brilliant as it gave my skin that ‘super clean’ feeling which I love!  After removing the mask I could see that my skin was glowing softer and looked brighter, after just one application of the product I was really amazed with the immediate impact!

Something else that I was really impressed by was how Danielle has put a lot of thought into making her product eco-friendly. Microbeads and other ingredients found in many products can have a negative impact on the environment and OMS avoids all of this as well reducing packaging wastage by being totally refillable!

I was lucky enough to receive an OMS pack to take home and I have been using the mask on a weekly basis since the event a few weeks ago. I am so pleased to report that it really works and the results for me have been amazing! I am so pleased to have found this product was delighted to be part of the exciting launch!

 

The launch event was an amazing success and everyone loved the product – I got such a buzz from just being there! I was honoured to share my opinions and first impressions of the product with the guests which was easy – it’s not difficult to talk about something that you like so much! Danielle also spoke about her product with such passion it was really inspiring for me. I had a brilliant time and met some really lovely and interesting local ladies.

 

 

To see the results and my first impressions on the day keep your eyes peeled for my video coming to my YouTube channel very soon! If you would like to find out more about OhMySkin or purchase the product to see the results for yourself you can visit their website here.
