Glasgow's Style Mile Festival

In case you have missed the twitter hype and you live in Glasgow or nearby I wanted to do a quick post to point you in the direction of the exciting #stylemilefestival going on from today!

I love Glasgow and among our many many highlights is the absolutely amazing shopping on offer and to celebrate that, we even have our own  shopping festival now! With a top notch mix of events, offer and masterclasses running, this is a jam packed few days. You can find out all the details on the website but among the highlights for me are the gorgeous style hub you can see right on Buchanan Street, makeup masterclasses with the phenomenally talented Jamie Genevieve and a visit from Optimus Prime.... There is something for everyone going on!

I am so excited, I love it when the centre has an additional buzz happening and with the huge line up of events, I know it is going to be super busy.

Check out all the happenings on the website, head to the big pink festival hub  or keep an eye out across social media to keep up with the fun.

Rediscovering The Body Shop

When I was younger a trip to my local Body Shop was one of the most grown up things I could do. I still remember the first time I received one of their little round lip balm pots ( hello shea butter!) and thinking I was a super model.That little beauty was the start of an elaborate love affair with the brand among me and my pals and it really took me through my teenage years. As I moved off to Uni and discovered a world of brands, I am sad to say aside from the odd staple purchase The Body Shop faded into the background. I stopped paying attention and turns out I missed a whole heap of amazing product releases!

Glasgow Reviewed; BW Beauty

I absolutely love checking out newcomers to the health and beauty scene in Glasgow and my eyes are always peeled for new places to try, so I was of course all over it when  BW Beauty created a new treatment space in Partick. Offering a full range of services that are really well priced, owner Becca has really got a commitment and passion for beauty and I was super excited to pay her a visit.

Scottish Ballet, Swan Lake and Nars; A magical combination

Pics David Eustace.
I reckon Black Swan has made Swan Lake the ballet synonymous with fierce make up looks. There probably won’t be a Halloween from here on in where someone doesn't rock the iconic black smokey eyes of Natalie Portman’s character. So when I found out the Scottish Ballet were going to be touring with an imaginative re-telling of the famous ballet, I couldn’t wait to find out what they would be using for the make-up and I was  so delighted when I found it was none of their than the iconic brand itself, Nars. A huge fan of their products and with so many among my staples, I knew we were in for a treat.

Glasgow Reviewed; 33Dowanhill

Every so often a review opportunity comes along that allows you discover an absolute gem in the Glasgow crown and the newly opened 33Dowanhill is exactly that. The minute I turned the corner in Glasgow’s westend and saw the beautiful cream and gold detailing of the outside, I knew I was about to walk in somewhere special. Greeted by the incredibly warm, and fun and not to mention absolutely glowing, owner Joanna, I was instantly at ease. She has created a peaceful and inviting reception space that is ideal for taking a seat and nattering all things skincare and she was sure to get to grips with how I felt my skin was and what I would like to improve.

SS16 with Debenhams

I was barely out of the event when I started typing furiously on my phone so I could get all my favourite pieces I had just seen saved. I love a Debenhams preview as they have such a knack for taking all the designers I love in one spot and curating the absolutely pick of the collections into one handy to peruse room. Thank the lord they don't let us buy directly while we are there or my bank account would be DOOMED.
