Following the wedding of the year came my event of the year! (this might be a slight exaggeration but to me it really was the event of the year, it was the first major event my agency handled so I was determined to make it a successful and memorable one!) I've written a full event update below so please do have a read. I want to say a special thank you to my assistant Sonia for being my shining star during the whole process, I'm so grateful for your help!
So theres been weddings, fashion shows, press events oh and did I mention I've discovered the two most amazing miracle eye beauty treats to banish dark, tired and puffy eyes- and a hybrid hair serum you HAVE to invest in (your hair will thank you for it!)...
To sum up, September has been all rather crazy but SO much fun and its safe to say I won't be forgetting it any time soon!
Here's to an exciting October ahead, I'm heading over to LA on the 1st so watch this space for a full debrief in my October Beauty Bulletin- I'm already looking forward to the american beauty finds!
MY SEPTEMBER SAVIOUR'S
VICHY IDEALIA EYES- Ahead of my big fashion week beauty event I experienced stressful days, sleepless nights, hours upon hours of staring at my computer screen and the horrid pollution of the city on my skin causing nasty breakouts. These factors combined had really taken its toll on my skin and in particular my eyes, resulting in dark circles and basically me looking constantly tired- not ideal especially when you have to be on top form for the busiest fashion month of the season! Luckily, IDEALIA EYES by Vichy came to me at exactly the right time and has quite literally got me through a very busy month and completely disguised my tiredness... hurrah! This powerful little tube is cleverly designed with a miniature, delicate little tip made of ultra-soft flexible silicone and really is as gentle as the touch of a finger (with the precision of a brush)- its a very satisfying application process and the results are even better. Eyes are instantly brightened and dark shadows are illuminated. This is a skincare saviour for use on a daily basis for an instant uplift on the days you need it most, and a longterm key product to take care of your precious eye area- smooth, line free eyes here I come!

CLARINS BRUSH-ON PERFECTOR- As well as using my Vichy Idealia Eyes to take care of my dark eye shadows in the longterm, I've discovered this amazing little gold pen that literally erases imperfections and shadows in one simple little sweep and delivers an instant tightening effect to the skin! Clarins Light Optimising Complex illuminates the eye area and smoothes the skin using Oat Sugars- all I can say is I LOVE this product and I prefer it to all time favourite, the YSL Touche Eclat- statement I know, but this is a makeup bag investment (also how luxe is the gold tube, so gorge!) Buy yours here and thank me later.
#LFW Sept 2014
BORA AKSU-I was so lucky to be invited to the Bora Aksu show with my favourite perfume brand Penhaligon's and the show was just incredible with the most amazing new designs! To sum up the new collection in three words it was; romantic, pretty and powerful and left me feeling utterly inspired. The gorgeous contrasting fabrics of lace, cottons and silks used in this collection told a story of romance and dancing which was the story behind the clothes. There was a lightness and innocence that came from the paper-doll like models that so delicately displayed this collection for S/S 2015 and I can't wait to see them go from catwalk to reality in the new seasons ahead of us.
RECOMMENDATION OF THE MONTH
TOM FORD MAKEOVER AT SELFRIDGES-
I walked away with a spring in my step and completely prepared for one of the busiest days of the season! I highly recommend booking in for a Tom Ford makeover at Selfridges before a special occasion or event, its 25 mins of utter pamper time, around £30, and is just one less thing to worry about as you know you'll walk away with perfect makeup. Thanks for being so perfect Tom Ford.
PSAILA PR #InsideOutBeauty BEAUTY PRESS EVENT
My agency held and hosted a beauty boosting event on the first day of London Fashion Week to celebrate #InsideOutBeauty with two amazing brands I represent, The Elixir Clinic and ARK Skincare.
The ethos behind the event was to show acknowledgement to the fact true beauty comes from the inside-out, by this I mean giving your skin the special attention it needs to be truly radiant, glowing and look its very best using natural skincare products that really work and making sure your body absorbs the right amount of vitamins. As important as it is to take care of your skin on the outside, taking care of your inside is equally important and the two work together to embrace and embody beauty! The Elixir Clinic's Vitamin Infusions use the most effective and safe detox method for sustaining long term wellbeing and are tailor-made to suit your needs. Each Vitamin Infusion helps with your general health, fitness and wellbeing all resulting in a beautiful you. The beauty event was held in probably my favourite beauty and wellbeing haven in the city, Grace Belgravia located in Knightsbridge.
What a successful evening it was, the room was filled with beauty bloggers, journalists and all round beauty obsessives all so keen and excited to learn about the brands and what they had to offer! Our guests enjoyed superfood smoothies, delicious sushi made by the amazing chefs at the Grace restaurant and gorgeous manicures by the lovely ARK team. There was a great vibe throughout the entire evening, and we had really positive feedback which was lovely. I left Grace at the end of the night feeling so proud to represent two such special brands that I honestly feel so passionate about, all of the hard work most definitely paid off as it really was a memorable evening. A big thanks to everyone that came and thank you to everyone at Grace for helping to make our event so perfect.

NAIL SHADE OF THE MONTH
Each month I'll be sharing my favourite nail shade as I get so obsessed with wearing the same colour, I figured it would be a great way to explore the true extent of the ever-growing nail shade palette!
To kick things off I've chosen Alexa Silk by Nails Inc, I featured it last week and I really LOVE it!Click here for full review. This dark, glossy shade is such a great way to transition your makeup trends from summer to Autumn, it's the perfect sleek and sophisticated shade that makes a statement.
THE HYBRID HAIR OIL
Described as 'hybrid', this hair oil has the power of a deep conditioning hair treatment with the lightness we all want from our hair serums, as the worst thing about a lot of oils I've tried is the way they seem to weigh your hair down and make your hair feel greasy. I can fully recommend this Restorative Styling Oil by Joico, its a dream!
....and finally I feel this article is a great way to kick start the month of October!- THE FIVE TOOLS YOU NEED TO SURVIVE AS A 21ST CENTURY WOMAN - http://www.harpersbazaar.co.uk/people-parties/bazaar-at-work/the-five-tools-you-need-to-survive-as-a-21st-century-woman
