My Little Dream Box Review ( April's Box )

I've been a subscriber of My Little Box since December and slowly but surely it's become my favourite subscription box. I don't know what majestical powers My Little Box has but each month for whatever reason at least 1 of the products has been something relevant to me. In December I can recall needing to go and get wrapping paper and tags and that morning low and behold, in my December box had tags and string! Well each month has been a similar coincidence and this month has carried on that tradition..

Sanctum Soho with Dan Gold

I'd be lying if I didn't admit to having a thing for pretty makeup bags. I have about 8 or so.. and that's just the ones currently not in use haha, so when the opportunity arose to get the Sanctum Soho Rose Skull Cosmetic Bag* I was pretty excited. The bag itself isn't huge and is perfect for me for to take to work if I'm going out after and want to touch up my makeup. I can easily fit whatever foundation/ BB cream I'm using, my Nars creamy concealer in vanilla, my sleek face form in light ( it's my one compact to do it all that I reviewed here ), my Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ebony, my beauty blender and a fluffy brush along with whatever lipstick and lip pencil I'm rocking. 

Sanctum Soho, famous for being 'London's first Rock 'N' Roll Hotel' isn't shy to late night parties and eccentric fun so with the boutique starting its own line of travel wash bags they have tried to keep that sanctum spirit in the design so you can take it with you wherever you go. The rose script print was designed exclusively for Sanctum Soho by tattoo artist Dan Gold, he's known for his unique style fusing tattoo art with graffiti. The line itself is based around 4 bags, The Rose Script Cosmetic Clutch, the Rose Slouch Travel bag and mine pictured above, the Rose Skull Cosmetics Purse.

Curvy Convention 2015 - The Plus Size Revolution Is Heading to London!

Hi everyone, So you may have seen me talk about The Curvy Convention on my advertisers post and today  I want to tell you more about the event, I'm also hosting a little giveaway for 4 lucky readers to get the chance to attend Curvy Convention 2015 so keep reading to find out more and for the raffle!

The Curvy Convention is a fabulous event celebrating all things plus size in one fantastic location. The curvy Convention is taking place on Saturday 16th May 2015 from 11am - 9pm, at the beautiful St Mary's Bryanston Square, Wyndham Place, York Street, London W1H 1PQ. The venue is easy to get to, bright and spacious, has a snack bar serving hot and cold drinks and food where you can chill out with friends both new and old, AND the venue is also wheelchair accessible - which is great, they have thought of everything!

In amongst this amazing plus size experience the Curvy Convention will be hosting The Real British Plus Size Fashion Show, showing professional plus size models ranging from size 18 – 24 on the catwalk.  I've been told to get excited as The Curvy Convention will also be the ultimate curvy shopping experience, with an array of plus size designers, retailers, e-tailers, brands, workshops and beauty treatments available and much more, Basically you better bring some cash ladies! There will be plenty of competitions, model scouts, freebies, a variety of new and established plus size brands and perhaps even some surprise celebrity appearances! ooo Exciting!

I think it's important for the plus size industry to see that they need to cater and appeal to the actual women who will be buying and wearing their clothes, and the Curvy Convention catwalk shows how far plus size fashion has come and that plus size women no longer need to dress like frumps so I'm really looking forward to that! From what I've seen they've got alot of the best plus size brands on show at the event and I think It's going to be alot of fun!

If your a brand reading this and want to be a part in London’s hottest new annual plus size fashion event, you can check them out here www.curvyconvention.co.uk  If you are thinking of going to the Curvy Convention, as well as taking part in the giveaway below to try and win 1 of 4 tickets up for grabs, you can also get tickets which are a steal at only £5 available online! Advance ticket holders will also be entered into a prize draw to win 2 tickets to the British Plus Size Awards 2015 in November.

I've been told there will be a selection of workshops that are free to take part in, and they are just asking for donations on the day towards the much deserving Alzheimer’s Society. This is a fantastic chance to get involved in a Burlesque workshop with the famous Fabia Cerra, who will introduce you to the wonderful world of burlesque, or perhaps try some mind-cleansing Curvesome Yoga, or get your groove on with some 80's disco themed low/med impact aerobics. I don't know about you guys but I wouldn't mind getting my curvy flexibility on! Sign me up! The workshops will take place in the downstairs hall, and are also available to book on the Curvy Convention website.
