Hi sweeties. In my last post today is a fabbo wish list for you. I have always been a lover of black clothing since I was young as it's just easy to wear and pair with just about anything. These key pieces from Miss Rebel are my picks for the A/W chill.

What a great cover up to wear with casual or more formal attire. Perfect for that in between season weather. It looks effortlessly chic.

Why not go all out in the perfect co-ord by pairing with the jacket above. Great for nights out or casual days with a lazy tee or jumper.

This could be worn with the two above pieces for a sassy rock chick vibe.

Perfect to wear the day after the night before when thinking is just too hard. Also fantastic as a nightie so if worn out in the evening no need to change ;)

Let me know your Miss Rebel faves in the comments below.

Love to you all

Hey gorgeous readers and welcome back or hello if this is your first time here. 

I have an exciting Cornwall-based jewellery brand to share with you today. Lucy Wilson is creator, director, jeweller and designer of the fantastic Bloody Mary Metal jewellery brand. Since launching in 2012 BMM has become popular with fashion giants ASOS , MOTELOH MY LOVE LONDON, celebrities, stylists and magazines including British Vogue

Previous BMM collections

Heavy Metal: A hard edged collection with a London-built attitude based heavily on the sounds of heavy metal and rock 'n' roll. This really put BMM on the fashion map.

Arcane Love: Reflecting Lucy's change in lifestyle on returning to her Cornish roots. An enchanting collection of secret symbols, historical signs and alchemy.

Dream Weavers and Sinners and Sailors: Based around Cornwall's roots these collections embody the tales of sailors lost at sea while dream catchers hung above the beds of the women they left behind.

Luna Tribe: A more mature and intensely striking collection inspired by Cornish history, tarot and the treasures sought by pirates of the Cornish coast.

I had an invite only pass to view the BMM Winterspell Collection at the Abandon Ship Apparel Store in Soho on Thursday evening. It was the perfect setting.

An amazingly mystical and spiritual collection with winter accents reflected in the antlers and arrow snowflake.

I love the decor. Later on the lights were switched off as candles and fairy lights captured the essence of the night.

BMM decorated cupcakes were munched away along with macaroons and some awesome chocolate. All soothed back with bubbly or cloudy lemonade.

Prior to the event I was asked to measure my ring size. Waiting for all attendees on a Xmas tree were our own baubles with a personalised ring inside. Mine was engraved with my initial 'V' and a heart. I love it! To create your own personalised ring which can be stacked check out this link! It would make a great Xmas pressie. 

There is a GIFT WRAP & CHRISTMAS CARD option too as well as a BMM GUIDE TO CHOOSING THAT RING! I have been given one of these which I might just pop in someones work bag with my ring size written on in time for Xmas ;)

There is a RING RE-SIZE SERVICE if you don't want to spoil the surprise. If however you are treating yourself a RING SIZER is available to ensure all purchases fit well.

We were all given our own personalised LARGE, HEAVY DUTY 12OZ TOTE BAG too. Mine included the SNOWFLAKE RING, a cracker with 3 SINGLE CHARM THREADBARES, 2 packs of BMM X DIY NAILS DECALS one being the WINTER NAIL DECALS, BMM stickers, a personalised notebook with pen and an ABANDON SHIP F U BUDDY BEANIE HAT.

Hi beauties. I hope you are all very well and feeling festive. I must admit I'm not quite there yet, but once December starts next week I am sure sleigh bells will be ringing in my ears :)

On Monday evening I attended Day 4 of the Bloggers Love Hub at the Kanaloa club as a VIB. It was a great night with more brilliant brands that got me excited and I can't wait to share with you.

SLENDERTONE were in attendance once again entertaining X Factor contestant Lydia Lucy with their face toning tool. Slendertone very kindly gifted me with some new pads for my own ab toning belt.

With my front row seat ready I was excited for what came next.


YOURS TRULY ORGANICS have an organic skincare range to tackle skincare troubles. The idea is to re-educate the skin and change the way the skin behaves. With products for soothing, repairing and brightening amongst many other benefits this range is worth a look. Although most products I am told work well for oily skin I have been given the Face Base Face Balm to try on my dry skin as it is meant to be a great primer for make-up.

The lovely Laura from Adore Boutique gave me the opportunity to choose a delicious item from her fabulous rail of clothing. I chose the Anna dress which is just gorgeous. This girl has talent with everything from on trend fashion items to beautifully crafted pieces that are very intricate and detailed.

I was very pleased to meet the lovely Angela in person as I have previously reviewed four Timeless Truth Beauty Masks which you can read here! I am already a fan of these masks and have been gifted with another to try so watch out for that review :)

Knowing that Nadia Minkoff would be at another Bloggers Love event made me very happy indeed. The lady herself is a pleasure to talk to and her products speak for themselves. A present was reserved for me in advance and I was gobsmacked when I unwrapped it at home. I have been gifted with the Pimlico Pouch. There are no words. I am astounded and very grateful. I also have some jewellery which was partly in the Bloggers Love goodie bag along with some Dermalogica products.

This popular tanning range were at the event promoting their illuminating skin finishers. They have a lovely sheen rather than shimmer to highlight the face and body and accentuate that tan. I was also given some fake tan advice and product recommendations too. I was told that my pale dry skin would work best with medium shade lotion products for a smooth application and to see a difference in colour, but still look natural.

Offering a personalised skincare service meant only for you. 5 easy steps are all it takes to have your bespoke products in your possession. 

1. Select your skin type, age & ethnicity.
2. Choose your preferred texture of product.
3. Choose am or pm for application time.
4. Select your skincare concerns and priorities.
5. Add your mood boost preference.

The ingredients will then be conjured up into your own unique blend tailor made for your skincare needs. Best of all your name is adorned onto your products for that extra special just for you touch. You can have an online chat with a skincare expert, before committing to a purchase to ensure you choose the right products for you. You can also gift someone with bespoke products to show you went that extra mile.

In Situ asked me to fill out a questionnaire on the evening. They will be sending me a £30 voucher so that I can order my own personalised product as I did not see this offer prior to the event. I can't wait :)

With a great selection of A/W pieces this fashion brand drew me in. I am especially a fan of their winter coats and Aztec print.

Prior to meeting with the lady herself (no not Katie for those wondering) I had viewed this fashion website and was wowed with sexy and quite daring (for me anyway) pieces. Jordan reassured me that each piece can be made to your own request. For example I asked if an insert of material could be added to a dress with a quite exposed chest area to still show some cleavage, but add modesty and support? The answer is yes. I loved The 'Coppelia X' Glitter Skater (far left). It's well lined and embellished with lots of sparkling detail for that wow factor. So why Jordans Wardrobe? Jordan has tried and tested these designs herself. This really is Jordans Wardrobe as you can see when she models these pieces on her site.

This supplement brand I have already reviewed the BioCorrex Uber SKin Plus collagen powder for in a series of 3 vlogs (Intro, mid-way & results) which you can view here! As well as covering your skincare needs from the inside BioCorrex also have supplements on offer for hair growth, volume, strength and shine.

Vernez is the newly interactive website and I-Phone mobile app that allows you to create your own e-wardrobe, share outfit ideas and discover others styles. 

So you have found a piece you love, but have a mind blank on how to wear it. No worries. Check out other users style suggestions. 

It's simple to put an outfit together without all the fuss of trying stuff on only to be hot and bothered, probably staying in wearing your pyjamas.

I think this is a very innovative way of creating and discovering new styles. Last minute invites need never cause trauma again!

UMBERTO GIANNINI were also pampering guests' tresses to perfection.

There were four days of the Bloggers Love Hub. I unfortunately missed Day 2, but you can view Day 1 here and Day 3 here.

A massive well done to Danielle for organising these fantastic events. I have no idea how she manages it.

Hello sweeties. I am back again today with a skincare review post of 2 DHC products that were sent to me to test for you.

As we age pores become enlarged making skin appear dull and uneven. To help minimise the appearance of pores cult Japanese brand DHC have added to their successful pore series range these 2 cleansers leaving the skin feeling clean, healthy and refreshed.

This cleansing oil removes make-up, dirt and excess sebum (oil) unclogging pores to make them less visible. This pumps out easily as a clear liquid. One pump covers my entire face and neck. I massaged it in with dry hands onto dry skin before showering it off.

You only need to use a small amount of the product from this tube for a full on soapy lather. It is said to feature 2 gentle exfoliants, but don't worry as there are no granules in the formula. I applied this after the cleansing oil. I really liked how it thoroughly cleansed my face and neck. Do be careful not to sniff with it near your nose though as it did feel a bit tingly and uncomfortable the first time I did just that, but I was just more careful when using there after.

Overall I really like this skincare combo. I fully admit that I do not have particularly enlarged pores, but I wanted to try these for their other benefits. Each time after use my face and neck felt thoroughly cleansed, free from dirt and make-up. I have dry skin by nature, but these did not leave my skin feeling tight or uncomfortable. The face wash does however have an effect of almost firming the skin so its smooth and taut, but still supple. This is why I believe anyone with enlarged pores would benefit from this pair. My only bad point I guess is that my eye make-up I had to remove separately. The packaging I think is a really nice change from the white most skincare brands tend to use with its baby blue hue.

To view the whole DHC pore range check this link!

Let me know your favourite DHC skincare products with reasons why in the comments below.

Love to you all

Hi my lovelies. How are you all on this drizzly Sunday? Snug and warm indoors I hope. 

Today I have a photo filled post for you featuring lots of fab fashion and beauty brands. I attended Day 3 of the Bloggers Love Hub at the Kanaloa club on Monday evening. I unfortunately missed Day 2, but you can view my post on Day 1 here! Without anymore rambling here are the fab brands :)

I couldn't help but stand up from my VIB front row seat when I saw these exquisite designs from KOYAWO. They moved beautifully.

COLOUR CHASE COSMETICS are a cruelty free and paraben free cosmetic brand with a very exciting line of matte lipsticks with a creamy, non-drying formula. There is also an ultra rich pigment line which can be used as eye shadows, liner and I suppose just about anything else. The thing that drew me to this brand the most is the variation of shades. There are some real colour pops as well as more muted tones. I have been very luckily gifted with two of their lipstick shades so let me know if you would like a review of those.

GOLD COLLAGEN is a sugar-free liquid beauty supplement that nourishes skin from the inside out targeting the visible signs of ageing. One shot is 20 times more effective than applying a collagen skin cream or taking a collagen pill. As we age skin becomes dull and less elastic. Collagen plays a major part in keeping skin supple, smooth and youthful. Dehydrated skin looks less plumped and vibrant. This is when fine lines and wrinkles start to appear or deepen if already visible. This product claims to reach the dermis deeper layer of the skin producing more collagen and hyaluronic acid to fight against the ageing process. It is recommended to drink 1 bottle each day for at least 4 weeks, but preferably 8 weeks or more for the best results. So for healthy skin, hair and nails will you be trying out this peach and passion fruit flavoured tipple? I have one bottle which I think is worth a shot ;)

SLENDERTONE are a brand that I was happy to see there. With a variety of appliances to tone those parts that need some help firming up they are a popular brand. I have a Slendertone Abs belt of my own and I really do think that when added to a healthy diet I do feel more toned and firm in my abdominal area. I was very kindly offered the opportunity to review a product of my choice and so I chose the Face toner. After I feel I have had enough time to see a difference (12 weeks scientifically proven results) I will post my review so keep an eye out for that!

SNIFFY WIFFY are a skincare brand that aims to take care of your skin and remind you to check yourself. Yep you didn't read that wrong. Sniffy Wiffy have a collection of handmade body products labelled with simple guides for checking your bits and bobs (that's breasts and testes ladies and gents). This way we can all SNIFF out Cancer at the earliest stages. With every purchase a donation is made to charity too. I myself check my breasts every month. So get checking while you get pampering ;) I was gifted with four scents of hand cream which I will of course review for you.

HIFAS DA TERRA are a mushroom based line of products. That sounded a little strange to me at first, but let me tell you that if they have me interested (which I am) and I don't eat mushrooms ever there must be something to them. There are so many mushroom types with a host of benefits for you inside and out and your pets. Yeah I know crazy right. So what types of products does this brand offer? Raw mushrooms and spices for cooking, honey blends and chocolate. Supplements including ones to fight infection, immunity balance and digestion as well as capsules for pets and syrup for children. Plus skincare and a massage range. Phew I think they have it covered for all the family. I have been gifted with some serum samples as well as the facial soap shown above. As I have IBS issues which some of you may know I have been asked to follow up and speak with this brand to discuss which products would be most beneficial for me and I believe review for you.

ZUZKA NATURAL BEAUTY cover skincare for both men and women as well as body care, hair care and 100% pure mineral make-up. The scent of their products are absolutely amazing all handmade from organic herbs, plants and flowers. Free from harsh properties and cruelty free they have advanced skincare for all skin types. Susan Kohutova is a qualified beauty specialist and registered medical herbalist with over 20 years experience as a consultant and therapist. Susan herself previously suffered with extremely sensitive, allergy prone skin and so decided to develop her own range free of the main skin irritants. These therapeutic formula's are designed to nourish and care for your skin while pampering you with their herbal aromas. I truly felt like I could drift to sleep while sniffing away at these products. The formula's felt lovely. I have been gifted with the Organic Precious Oil and Manuka Balm so I will of course review those too :)

BOW BOUTIQUE have a fantastic celebrity inspired on trend fashion and accessory line including bodycon, sexy designs for girls who like clubbing as well as fashion wear for an evening meal or event.

MIFANI are what I like to think of as shoe candy. Choose embellishments to rock your current footwear or purchase Mifani's own custom designs. It's customising made easy for fashionista's who like to change things up.

MATTHEW CALVIN is the designer and producer behind this stylish and contemporary jewellery line. Made from quality hand crafted materials this range with it's clean, simple lines has a very modern edge. If you would like to have a truly unique experience at Matthew Calvin you can take part in the bespoke service which includes engravings, reconditioning or replicating old jewellery, custom designs and full day design and production experiences. I love the purity and sustainability that Matthew Calvin offers. These pieces are meant for keeps!

SUMAYAH DERIA have a line or elegant, modern evening and event wear. There are lovely applique designs as well as sequined pieces in this range which boasts rich jewel tones and more muted shades. The brand tee is a great every day piece that could easily be mixed and matched with a blazer and jeans or a high waisted skirt and blanket scarf for example.

 Hair care and styling brand UMBERTO GIANNINI and CHARCOAL-SPA were also in attendance, but I did not unfortunately get to speak with them. I did meet Charcoal-Spa at BLOGGERS LOVE HUB DAY 1 however if you would like more information about this skincare brand as well as the skincare brand NDULGE who also attended Day 3.

To go forward in time here is Day 4 of the Bloggers Love Hub. I missed Day 2, sorry lovelies.

Love to you all

Vicky xx
