THE SUNDAY POST #20


001. My highlight of the week was definitely #ThePressTentEvent It was a lovely chance to catch up with a bunch of lovely bloggers, have a few cocktails and discover lots of new brands. I was so impressed with Rock on Ruby's summer collection, Twinface had some beautiful jewellery and I also met the lovely Sejal and Divya, who weren't showing at the event but they were both wearing some beautiful statement necklaces from their brand Fashion Killa.

002. So what did everyone think of the Bad Blood video? I loved it, but it really could have been a lot longer. There were so many amazing people involved and it would have been nice to see them for more than a few seconds at a time. I'm also loving the Feeling Myself video, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce are both absolute queens.. But my favourite music video comes from another queen this week: Rastafarian Targaryen for Comic Relief.. If you're a Game of Thrones fan go and check it out, I guarantee you'll be humming it all week! 

003. I've been compiling a huge list of things to do as soon as exams are over, top of the list is go for brunch. Federal and Moose are two of my favourite places in the city, so I'll be heading back to both of those for pancakes, bacon, eggs, avocado toast and more! I'm also going to have a huge wardrobe and makeup clearout and put a load of stuff on depop.. So watch this space for new and unused beauty items, and a whole bunch of barely worn high street clothes in sizes 10/12/14. 

004. At the moment I'm trying out some new products from the Vitamin C range* at The Body Shop. The moisturiser and glow enhancer are perfect to use in the morning, as they leave skin looking dewy and bright. For me, the scent is overpoweringly fruity, but it is an uplifting scent that some people might love to use in the mornings. Overall I'm enjoying the products though, so expect to see a review soon. 

005. I have two exams this week, so I won't be posting again until the weekend, but why don't you check out my revision posts if you're looking for some tips. After exams I'm hoping to have a bit of a blog switch up, with lots of new posts, an improved layout and more consistent branding. Is there anything you'd like to see more, or less of on HIW?

  2. I was expecting so much more from the Bad Blood video. In my opinion it didn;t really live up to the hype surrounding it the week or so before which was sad :(

  4. So wish I could've made the Press Tent event :( also LOVE the Bad Blood video. So many kick ass girls in it looking gorgeous but wish the video would've had a longer intro like what Lady Gaga used to do with her videos! I haven't tried this particular Body Shop product but it sounds like it would be quite rejuvenating. I have an exam this week too, what a mare and can't wait for Friday's night out!! Good luck with your exams :) xx

    1. It was a great event, hopefully they'll hold another one soon! I completely agree, the cast was amazing but it should have been longer. The whole Vitamin C range is very uplifting and great for dull skin.. Good luck for your exam too Beckie, see you Friday xx
