Busy bee.

I usually have a little list on the go of blog posts that I need to write about and the ones that always fall to the bottom of the list are events. I don't know why, because they're always one of my favourite things about blogging. I love seeing brands in their natural habitat and experiencing the creative ways they promote themselves - but obviously, the best part is hanging out with other bloggers!

I've been to a few different things lately so thought I'd do a bit of a 3-in-1 dealio right here.

Witch Bowling Event
I mentioned this a few weeks ago in an outfit post but never actually posted about the event, which is a travesty. Witch Skincare arranged for their Flawless Friends to take over the All Star Lanes in Brick Lane for bowling, nibbles and cocktails. So many cocktails.

I also got my makeup done by Lisa Valencia, a professional makeup artist who works with Witch. She's awesome. She did a super glam look on my face and also gave me lots of advice - so much better than when I usually ask pro beauty people like facialists for advice as they're all slightly biased.

It was such a giggle - I had a good old gossip, made sure my 'Biggest Loser' track record in bowling stayed intact and even took part in a Harlem Shake video. No, I don't really understand it either.

Fossil Press Day
I used to get invited to quite a lot of press days but gradually the invites have dried up, and quite rightly, because I can never make it to them! I'm always a little envious of London-based bloggers or those who don't work full time, because there are so many events that finish at 6pm or so that I just can't make it to because of work. So I was excited to be in London in time to catch the end of the Fossil press day.

I love Fossil, I've had the same Fossil wallet for nearly two years now and it's just such good quality, I'm confident that I'll have it for even more years. I didn't realise that they actually sell various other watch brands like DKNY and Armani Exchange. How pretty?

Pics taken from Fossil Instagram because mine were rubbish!

AX Paris
There's nothing like a good old Bloggers party and AX Paris delivered this a couple of weeks ago! We watched acrobatics at Circus Bar (I only managed one blurry picture, below, of one of the EXTREMELY attractive performers), drank cocktails, had fun in a photobooth and of course giggled and gossiped away as we watched the new AX Paris TV ad - it looks amazing! You can watch it here.

Chloe and I grabbed a burger at MeatMarket on the way home as we took in the contents of our overly generous goody bags - the Ryan Gosling colouring book was definitely a highlight!

I stole this picture from Sarah of Chloe, Lauren and I - dear god, those are some PINK cheeks! I was unknowingly coming down with a throat infection at the time so I'm pretty pleased I avoided most cameras on the night - I may not have realised but the cameras did!
