Silver/Grey/Platinum || Hair Talk

This is a first on my blog; a Hair talk post!

If you follow me on pinterest you may have seen that I've been pinning images of women with gorgeous silver/grey locks. I'm toying around with the idea of going Platinum Silver/grey; Sisco style! Just kidding! I'm leaning more towards a grey sliver hue but how amazing would that be!?

TNMM: Calling Festival 2014 | Music


Its been a ridiculously long time since I blogged (& with good reason) But instead of bore you with a heart to heart I thought I would save it for another post and reintroduce
 'The New Monday Morning' Posts! (even though its a little late in the day)

I went to Calling festival on June 29th where Stevie Wonder was the headlining act. Seeing him perform live is one thing that I can happily tick off of my bucket list. Stevie Wonder was awesome live and he's so funny too. I'm still in awe at how amazing it was. It's one of those 'pinch me' moments that I'll cherish forever! His set was phenomenal...Hearing 'Master Blaster' '(Jammin') & 'Superstition' topped it off for me. It was such a lovely day full of good vibes, Music, Sun, Pimms & Somersby cider.
I missed the 1st act; Michael Kiwankua but I did get the see Paloma Faith & Jack Johnson which was fab. During the interval I made a quick dash to grab some Maple syrup Churros & Coffee. As soon as I got my change I heard Stevie & his band playing the intro to 'How sweet it is'; perfect timing! Needless to say I made a quick dash back towards the stage along with everyone else who was queuing.
I totes forgot to take a picture of the churros I chowed down. If I had to described them in two words
- unspeakable goodness! ha!

Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter SS14 Launch Event | Beauty Brunch

Cocoa Brown
Hello Lovelies! 
Today I have an exciting post. I was recently invited to a beauty brunch at the Park Plaza Hotel to take a look at the newest products in the best-selling tanning range; Cocoa Brown.
I had a lovely afternoon learning more about the brand & meeting new bloggers 
( Check out these lovely blogs by Katie , Lottie , Rachel , Maria & Holly ) 
I also had the pleasure of meeting the lovely founder of Cocoa Brown;  Marissa Carter! ^_^

Cocoa Brown is a self-tanning range which you may have heard of as it is quickly becoming a popular favourite in the beauty industry and for many Women. The range includes everything you need to get the best smooth and bronze tan. It includes everything from an exfoliating scrub to an airbrush spray for legs. It's available to buy at Boots, Superdrug, Primark & Feel Unique. 

The event was held inside the hotel at the Primo Bar which has an amazing view of Big Ben.
The venue was absolutely lush and the prefect location for a Beauty brunch! On my way into the event I met Holly and together we were welcomed in by Alana who gave us a run down of the day and showed us to the table full of bountiful treats pictured below! 

After a cup of coffee, mingling and taking pictures I had the chance to speak to Stephanie and Marissa. They are honestly the sweetest most down to earth ladies I've ever met.
 They looked stunning and they were super friendly. Marissa is so humble and its really unique to see that in the beauty industry. It was so inspiring listening to Marissa's success story which keeps reaching new heights. It's very impressive and it couldn't have happened to a nicer lady. I read a quote on Marissa's Instagram which I really liked so i thought I'd share it;

"You're never too important to be grateful- Say Thank you" 

I completely agree with this and its something that I've always stuck to. I really admire how sincere Marissa is and Its always nice to see companies who really care about their brand and costumers.
In a way the event felt very celebratory & I'm so proud of all Marissa's accomplishments so far
and I wish her & Cocoa Brown all the best for the future!

I've heard nothing but good things from everyone who has tried the brand so I already know that it's something I'll love. You just have to read the reviews and see the ratings to know its a winner.
I'll be reviewing some Cocoa Brown Products in a blog post soon so keep a look out for that. 

Thanks you to Marissa Carter & her team for the invite and for a lovely afternoon!
