Sunday Specials: 16/01/2011

Hope you're all well. Just some news about new companies and a sneak peek as to what I'll be upto over the next few weeks.

I've just discovered Fashion Flirts, which do some really great presents. They make some really fun and glamorous products, that are just gorgeous.
They make small and affordable gift sets, which is really helpful when you have no idea what to buy others. My personal favourite is the Wild Child Set, which contains earrings, a necklace, a bracelet, a leopard print clutcyh and scarf.

I'm also due to go to some really fun events over te next few weeks. I'm off to the Asian Bride Show next weekend (don't worry, I'm not the one getting married) and then IMATS the week after.

I've never been to the Asian Bride Show before, despite hearing a lot of good things about it. It's happening next weekend (22nd and 23rd), and is the biggest Asian Wedding exhibitions. Now I'm not one to run away from my culture (well, maybe a bit), but a traditional and huge Asian wedding has always been in the cards for me (sometime in the future), so why not start planning early. It's sponsored by Asian Woman Magazine and Asian Bride Magazine, so looks set to be quite a show. Wembley Stadium will be taken over by gorgeous catwalk shows, and there will be plenty of celebrities signing sutographs (Sandeesh from The Apprentice will be there as well). There'll be 4 catwalk shows a day and they look set to really impress visitors with the latest wedding dresses and accessories.


There'll be exhibitors showcasing everything from gorgeous colourful wedding dresses, to people doing make up and even henna.

Tickets are really affordable, at £10, so if you're around definitely come for it. I predict lots of amazing food, music and colours.

I'm also of to IMATS again this year. I went last year and absolutely loved it! It's taking placeat Alexandra Palace on the 29th and 30th January and as usual, has a huge array of make up artists, brands and speakers. This year's special panel is the make up team from Harry Potter, and they'll be discussing everything Harry Potter.
Youtube make up gurus and legends, such as Eve Pearl and Alex Box will all be on hand, giving talks and demostrations.


And like last year, the Student Competition will be running, which has a mythological creatures theme and the beauty competition has a tribal theme to it this year. Last years entries were spectacular, so I can't wait to see the competition this year.

Kimberlee, from 'I have 'A Degree In This' passed along the Stylish Blogger Award to me: yaaay. Definitely check out her blog if you already haven't!


So, I'm meant to mention 7 things about me and pass it on. So here goes:
1) I spent 9 years of my childhood living in Hong Kong
2) I've worked on an Election Campaign
3) Listening to music is one of my favourite things to do
4) I have an 'interesting' sense of humour
5) I recently left my job, and despite having a hard time finding a new one, it's the bestdecision I've ever made
6) I'm trying to cut back on chocolates and have been going crazy
7) I've always wanted to be an astronaut

I can't decide who to pass it on as I love so many blogs, so this goes out to all of you, and I want to see 7 things from everyone as well.

Finally, there is a cool Wardrobe Swap Party coming up, and it's a VATFree Edition. It's on the 19th February, from 5pm-9pm, at 49 Tufnell Park Road (N7 0PS), in London.
It's a perfect opportunity for you to clean up your wardrobe and get some great stuff back and this party will also let you swap books. There'll also be jewellery and beauty products for sale, and eyebrow threading.
It's £7.50 if you buy your tickets now, and £10 on the door. Enjoy if you're going!

Hope you all enjoy your sunday!

Ooh there was an Asian catwalk at the Birmingham Clothes Show when I went last year and that was so much fun! Wouldn't mind going to an Asian Bride Show but perhaps only when a close family relative was getting married!

Thanks for the mention! :)
& congrats on your award!

I don't know if this helps - but here's my tip on chocolate & trying to eat less of it...! I eat York peppermint patties - the miniatures. They're only 60 calories. It usually does the trick!


OceanDreams said...
