Vita Liberata Trystal Self Tanning Bronzing Minerals

*PR sample

At last I have found my dream bronzer! This is the Vita Liberata Trystal Self Tanning Bronzing Minerals, the world's first bronzer with self tanning properties. Bronzer is a key part of my daily make up routine, I like to use it to warm and contour my face but there hadn't been one that I absolutely loved until I was introduced to this beauty marvel.

This bronzer has been developed to suit all skin tones and the ingredient of DHA acts to create a long lasting tan. On first impressions I was put off by the unmistakable fake tan smell of this product and initially I was worried the scent would linger on my skin, however once applied it fades and becomes less of an issue. I have found this to give the most natural glow to my skin with no harshness or 'muddy' appearance. It is light in consistency, easy to build and for an even application I apply it onto my cheek bones, across the T-zone and blend down from my jaw line to my neck.

I adore the natural colour this gives my skin and I know I can rely on this to give my face some warmth in the Winter months to come.

Micro Cell Nail Repair

*PR sample

For years I battled with my nail biting habit and now that I have kicked it, I always strive to keep them looking they're best. I seem to go through phases of liking my nails long, then short, then long...well you get the idea..but regardless of their length they still seem to be prone to breaking. A couple of months ago I came across the Micro Cell Nail Repair polish, developed for brittle nails in need of strengthening. 

I apply this onto unpolished nails or use it as a base coat if I wish to wear colour. It's clear in colour and dries extremely quick which is great if you're in a hurry. Within a fortnight I had noticed my nails were stronger than ever and despite so many encounters where they would have split they stayed in tact! My nails managed to grow significantly long and look really healthy, I have however been recently forgetful at applying the polish and my nails have definitely suffered. I'd recommend this to anyone with weak nails as it gives genuine results that'll make you want to get your claws out!

On Saturday 5 September, I attended the Bloggers Festival held at the St James Conrad Hotel in London.  I was kindly invited by the lovely Scarlett of scarlettlondon.com who organised the entire event. The Bloggers Festival was an opportunity to network with brands and other bloggers alike whilst celebrating the ever expanding blogging community of today. I had a brilliant time, it was a really great opportunity for me to promote my blog and meet new people. 

The event was set up with stalls whereby bloggers could introduce themselves to brands, discover new products and be in the chance of winning some fantastic prizes!
