Last week Superdrug Beauty Studio in Cardiff hosted an evening with Ruth Crilly from A Model Recommends and COLAB for a selected group of lucky customers and bloggers. Unfortunately I could not attend as my boyfriend just came out of hospital and I had to look after him, but thought I’d get some information on the event for my readers.
COLAB is a range of dry shampoo for grown ups used by industry professionals and created by them too.
The night was filled with demos how tos, product showcases on how to get the best out of the products and to Celebrate the new Extreme Volume collection and launch the products nationwide in Superdrug stores.
Ruth led the masterclass by demonstrating how to achieve a catwalk ready style in the easiest way possible using the dry shampoo range by COLAB.
The range includes dry shampoos inspired by the Fashion capitals of the world, London, Paris, New York, Rio and Toyko each with a sheer and invisible formula that adds volume.
The dry shampoos range from £1.99 – £4.49 and can be purchased from Superdrug here: Click to see the full range!
I was invited to attend Cardiff Lush’s Christmas Blogger event to see what was instore for their Christmas line and have a chance to get some information about the new products.
The night didn’t consist of demos and group activities like the last event as the products were mainly extensions of their current products, but it was still fun to have a relaxed night of shopping and seeing old and new faces.
New products in included new Bubble Bars, Bath Bombs, shower gels, body dusts, face masks, laced with shimmery glitters and gorgeous scents. Continue reading “Lush Christmas 2014 Blogger event!”

I feel almost a little contradicting doing this post considering I’ll finish university when I’m half way to 50…
But I’ve just finished my first year in my new course in university, and having been in university 3 years in total I think it’s necessary to write what I’ve learnt so far, then laugh at the fact I’m probably not adhering to anything I’ve written.
So this is my guide to university, from a girl who’s done university twice.
Read on if you’d like to see my take on how to try and enjoy uni to the fullest!

Last month I discovered an art and gallery shop just off Albany Road on Inverness Place in Cardiff that has been there quite a few years so I felt really ignorant that I hadn’t noticed it before!
I was drawn to the mix of art there which included original art and prints, art materials and collectibles. It spreads over two floors and contains art from artists from around Britain.
After much deliberation over 3 wonderful pieces of art I finally decided on a piece by Katy Christianson which is a limited edition screen print, the piece is untitled.
If you’re in the area I advise you to pop into the gallery, you might see something you’ll like! There were many unusual pieces there, it was hard to choose. The atmosphere was friendly and I was ease wandering around looking at the shop and gallery!
