#BloggersBall, DSTRKT Part II

When I last left you, I had been mesmerised by Jody Bell's new collection. Did I mention I was having a pretty awesome time?

{Part I: here}

Having been sent off by Melanie (Jody Bell PR) to try on any piece of my choice , I was thrilled with excitement. Taking her niece with me, I was more than happy to try some clothes on.

Francesca zipped me up and sent me on my way.

This unusual move/purple/lilac playsuit caught my eye from the start. I had never seen anything in this colour and was immediately drawn to it.

Best of all, it's equipped with your very own butterfly wings!

My Instagram boyf was doing an excellent job of snapping me in the Jody Bell collection until he had some competition from Dean - Jody Bell's creative director.

Dean stepped in and started snap, snap, snapping away.

The material was soft, high-end and clung to your body in all the right places. The tassels made it fun and flirty and with my new wings (and my new WD passport) I could fly off to paradise. 

I didn't want to take it off. 

I couldn't bare to part with it, maybe because it was made in Spain and it reminded me of home or maybe because it just felt freaking awesome! That's when you know you have found a keeper - in love and clothing (*WINK*).

Then Melanie pulled out one of her faves.

This harem playsuit feels like you are walking in a pair of luxurious silk pyjamas. I don't think I have ever felt silk this soft.

It was loose and comfy but paired with heels made for an excellent holiday outfit.  

If you really want to over-indulge at dinner, this playsuit would be ideal it hides EVERYTHING and could also be a great Christmas or Thanksgiving outfit!

Eventually we peeled ourselves away from the glamour corner, but I could've happily stayed there all afternoon. Jody Bell's website is here, I can't wait to see more of the collection. 

From luxury clothes, we went to luxury skincare. 

Meet Sally, such an inspiring and amazing woman. 

She has been in the beauty industry for over 20 years and unhappy with the results of beauty products in the market, she decided to start producing her own beauty products and started up Face Matters. 

Not only has she come back fighting after many hardships in her life, which don't need to be detailed, but she launched Face Matters in competition with the big boys like Estee Lauder, Oil of Olay, Clinique and so many more. 

I listened in awe to Sally's story, what an amazing woman! She is a beauty therapist and understands the need for a beauty product that actually works.

Face Matters has two priorities: to harness beauty and to hold back time. Her products are made with carefully chosen natural ingredients and oils that aim to boost your collagen and give you that flawless skin. 

Face Matters has won many beauty awards and is a proud sponsor of the Prince's Trust and even supports victims of domestic violence.

As I near the big 25, my worries over my skin are heightened. When you reach 30 collagen (which holds your skin together and gives it that elasticity and firmness) production in your skin almost diminishes so it is best to start looking after it when you are young.

Sally kindly gave me a sample of her 24/7 anti-ageing balm. She is 100% confident in her product and if her flawless skin was anything to go by, I was more than willing to give it a try. 

Another person I was in awe of was this guy, who stood by my side all afternoon, supporting me, carrying my bags and had the patience of a saint. I just want to say a big thank you!

Chin Up masks promised amazing results to get rid of your double chin. I was sceptical as I have tried face masks before which promised to remove inches of your neck, stomach and so on. 

I listened and learned but I guess I would have to try it out for myself at home and let you know...

Finally, we'd found the Monin stall! Hallelujah!

I kept seeing all these people walking around with mini Monin cocktails with the distinct smell of coffee and hidden away in the corner, we found them.

These were no ordinary espresso martinis (which are ama-ZING in themselves) these were chocolate cookie espresso martinis. 

Chocolate cookie syrup was just incredible. We had to take two samples.

And whilst we were at Monin I received the news my photo had won the Blogosphere Competition. Insane! But do I really need anymore bags?

The lovely Beth gave me my prize and said they would drop me an email to confirm my subscription to the magazine. 

What an amazing day!

I almost forgot to tell you about my dress. If you hadn't realised, one of my favourite colours is red...

And this red number is part of Millie's new collection, 

Millie's sizes are a little on the big side, I have tried a few of her pieces and I've always had to buy one size smaller. So I'd recommend you order one size smaller than your actual size. 

On sale here.

You could even get it from from ASOS, so you can top up your ASOS rewards, link here. 

But now, I moustache you a question...
Lipivir promises to keep cold sores at bay, but I have never had a cold sore in my life! 

Does anyone suffer badly from cold sores? I would happy to send you my samples of Lipivir and monitor your results. Apparently people who started using Lipivir haven't had a cold sore for 4 years. 

Drop me a comment in the box below or you can find my contact details here and I'd happily send them to you.

Then we flew off to the beach with On The Beach Holidays.
(I wish!)
But the lay and summer beach glasses helped me get in to my holiday mood. It seems everything at this #BloggersBall was telling me I needed a holiday.
Can you tell I'm fed up of this British Summer weather?

I can't explain how much of a wonderful time I had at the Bloggers Ball and here is the main girl herself who organised it all.

Thank you thank you Scarlett! I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to a blogger event. Watch out for her next event coming up in September: Bloggers Festival, a bunch of more information here.

Everything wrapped up around 16:30 and we were exhausted. What a thrill of a day! We jumped in an Uber and headed back to the hotel. It was time to meet my friends for some cocktails. 

But not before realising the extent of my goodies. 

It felt like Christmas!

A couple of hours later  I was sat at Mar y Tierra in Southbank, surrounded by friends and vino and tapas and was transported back to Spain.

My nerves from the morning felt like a lifetime away and I couldn't have a better Saturday in London.

Did you go to the Bloggers Ball? Leave me your links below, I'd love to see your take on the event.
