Tangle Teezer Pug Love

Tangle Teezer Pug Love Compact Styler
Tangle Teezer have launched a brand new design 'Pug Love' to their Compact Styler range which I was lucky enough to be gifted when I attended their Puppy Party! I was able to take Tilly & Lulu down to London with me for Afternoon Tea at the Milestone Hotel & got to hang out with Tangle Teezers very own office Dog, Nala the Pug. Without a doubt it was my favourite event I've ever attended, Pugs, Tea, Cakes, the lovely PR girls from Tangle Teezer & Pets Pyjamas make the perfect combination for a party! I also had the absolute pleasure of meeting Becca & her handsome Pug Rupert, I've watched Becca on YouTube for years now so it was really nice to meet her & discuss the ridiculous amount of love we have for our little squishes! 
I did a photoshoot with Tilly & Lulu to show off the new Pug Love teezer, Tilly being the best poser of the two! Lulu kept running off but Tilly will happily sit & pose for the camera as long as there is a treat in my hand... #BritainsNextTopPugModel

Tangle Teezer Pug Love, Tilly Lulu Pugs,
I first discovered Tangle Teezer when I started getting into haircare, I was so fed up of struggling to get a brush through my thick, frizzy hair that becoming a Tangle Teezer owner was one of the best beauty decisions I made. It felt like a miracle had happened to be able to brush through my knots with ease & not wince at the pain of brushing them out. I ended up telling my mum to buy one for my little sister, Leah, who suffered from a very sensitive scalp which made brushing her hair a nightmare. Whilst she is still head sore Tangle Teezer has been life changing by enabling her to brush her hair pain free! I've got two of The Original hairbrushes, a purple glitter one & the newest addition I received at Christmas from Dom, the Candyfloss one which is so pretty, but sadly both are unavailable now. Dom is forever stealing my Tangle Teezer & it seems I'm not the only one having it "borrowed", I didn't even know their was a Male version available until we were discussing how often our brushes go walkies. Now Dom is the proud owner of his very own Men's Compact Tangle Teezer Groomer I don't need to spend half my morning running around the house for my missing one!
Tangle Teezer Pug Love Compact Styler
The Pug Love design is available in the Compact Styler range, slightly smaller than The Original with a protective cover means it's the ultimate handbag accessory. The cute Pug faces wearing little pink bows are absolutely adorable and it's almost as if it has been made for me! I know this is going to be popular amongst Pug lovers, we all go crazy for anything with a Pug on & with this being so cute but also useful it'll be a big hit. In fact I've already convinced a few fellow Pug owners to buy themselves one & you should to! It's currently an online exclusive that you can buy here.
Tangle Teezer Pug Love, Tilly Lulu Pugs,

Will you be getting your paws on the Pug Love Compact Styler?

An ASOS Wishlist


You know when you look in your wardrobe for something to wear & stand staring at it for a good five minutes because you literally hate everything you own? That has been me for the majority of the year, I've become so lazy with my style that chucking on an old baggy jumper & my trusty Topshop Joni Jeans on has been my go-to outfit. I caught sight of myself in a full length mirror the other day (currently on the hunt for a bedroom one) & had a sudden realisation of how awful I actually looked, so as soon as I got home I grabbed my laptop & clicked straight onto ASOS! I can always rely on ASOS to supply me with new clothes, I'm loving the festival/boho fashion at the moment so spent a good chunk of time browsing their Prarie trend section. All of the pretty embroidered detailing, pale denim, ruffled shirts & smock dresses be mine plz.

How beautiful is the Denim Smock Dress!? I'm imagining it with tan coloured sandals, a bucket bag & cat eye sunglasses. I think it's gonna be the 'blogger' dress of the Summer, I've already seen a few raving about it! I'm surprised at myself for not picking out more pastel coloured items, pastels scream Spring to me but can wash me out so I do find it tricky to get the balance right with lighter tones. I'm always gonna be a black/white/grey kinda gal! Whenever I'm browsing ASOS I can never resist typing 'Pug' into the search bar to see what new goodies they've added to the site. I can't deal with how cute the Skinnydip Angel Pug iPhone Case is & the matching Makeup Bag too has got my name all over it.

I used to find ASOS overwhelming to shop on because of the sheer amount of stuff they stock but now I get excited to navigate my way through pages & pages of items to see what else I can find. It's like a treasure hunt! I always break my search down by entering keywords into the search bar & then I choose brands I know I can afford, along with picking colours I like & finally I select my size options too! That way I know the stuff being displayed isn't anything out of reach. I also love browsing the trend sections if I've got a particular item in mind. So really ASOS isn't as overwhelming as I used to find it, you've just gotta tailor your search & be a little more specific, then voila! 

Whats on your wishlist at the mo?

I Just Love It Pizza Making Event

Way back at the end of February I was lucky enough to be invited along to a Pizza making class with I Just Love It, a brand that specialise in personalised gifts. I know I'm a naughty blogger only just getting round to posting about the event but I didn't want to let the event completely pass me by without giving it a mention. 

So, on Thursday 25th February I hopped on a train to London & made my way over to La Cucina Caldesi to have a go at making my very own Pizza. I was greeted with a glass of Prosecco & fresh Focaccia to nibble on whilst chatting with the other bloggers before the class began. Once the chef, Steffano, was ready to teach us all the art of Pizza making we put on our aprons & gathered around the big table in the centre of the room. Steffano has some seriously impressive Pizza making skills, he made it look so easy! When it was time for me to knead my pizza dough into a circular base I soon realised just how tricky it can be, I needed a helping hand to get my pizza into shape. Next up was adding the toppings, I chose Salami, Mozzarella, Basil & a big helping of Rocket sprinkled on top of the Pizza straight after it was removed from the oven. I have to say sliding my Pizza onto the huge shovel thing (no idea what it's called!) without squashing it & then carrying it over to the ovens without dropping it was a nerve-wracking experience. However it was a really fun cookery class & I spent most of the evening laughing at the state of my sorry looking pizza, it did taste delicious though!
Once we had all finished our Pizza it was time to head home, but not before being given our goody bags. Included in the bag & in keeping with the theme of the evening was my very own Personalised Rustic Pizza Plate which is amazing, now I'm the proud owner of a plate that will actually fit a Pizza on properly! Other goodies I received are a Personalised Cushion Cover, Great British Chocolate Fish & Chips12 personalised pencils, a Cocktail-Inspired Candle & a Personalised Silver Plated Vintage Teaspoon. My favourite item has got to be the little teaspoon, it's so cute & perfect to use when I'm doing some baking. I also love that I got pencils with my blog name on, does this mean I'm a professional now? I Just Love It will be my go-to website whenever I'm on the hunt for a unique gift or something personalised of course. 
The event also gave me the chance to see some of the products available over at IJLI which had been displayed on the shelves (see below) - how good do the Letter Lights look? It's amazing how many things can be personalised, there is literally something for everyone.

A big thank you to the lovely Sophie for giving me the opportunity to attend such a fab event & for introducing me to the I Just Love It personalised gifting website. Here is the write up over on the IJLI blog if you fancy a read or a nosey at a few more photos from the evening.

New In From Soap & Glory

One Saturday morning a few weeks ago, myself, Dom & the Pugs were having a lazy lie in when the postman knocked at our front door. Dom being the best boyfriend he is hurried out of bed to collect the post & delivered a big pink box from Soap & Glory to my bedside. Inside the box was Soap & Glory's latest PR package to promote the newest additions to their cosmetic range. They have created a board game called Glam Slam, remember Dream Phone from the 90s, well Glam Slam is similar - only it's even better with it having a makeup theme! I received four lovely makeup items in my pretty pink package, a brow product, two lip products & a highlighter. I'm a huge fan of Soap & Glory makeup so I knew I was going to love giving these new items a go, being gifted items from one of my most loved beauty brands feels kinda crazy but so cool at the same time! I'm forever grateful for all the opportunities this lil old blog of mine has given me. 
Soap & Glory have updated the original Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss by reformulating it & adding three new shades to the collection. I got the shade 'Doughnut' a nice neutral nude shade. It gives off a bit of a tingle when you apply it thanks to the new formula that includes an infusion of natural plant oil to help your lips feel instantly fuller. It applies really smoothly too & has a chocolate orange fragrance which is divine! 
The second lip product in my box was the brand new Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lip in . The creamy matte lip pencil glides on smoothly & defines my natural lip shape easily because of the way the bullet is sculpted. It's velvety soft with a really intense colour pay off, a single stroke of this stuff & you're good to go! They're a bit of a bargain too priced at only £3.50, I'll be popping a couple of other shades in my basket next time I'm in Boots. 
The Archery range is a well loved product collection in the beauty blogosphere, so it's no surprise really to see S&G have expanded on it & introduced three new brow products. New to the range is a brow gel, brow putty & a brow crayon, I received the Archery Brow Putty Dip Pot & Brush which is a nifty little creation. The angled brush is ideal for precision shaping & filling brows with the brow putty that is contained in a handy dipping pot at the other end of the brush. Brownie Points is a perfect medium brown shade match for my eyebrows, the ashy tones ensure they don't look too harsh or over the top. I like how convenient this brow product is, a staple in my travel makeup bag for sure & I'll be keeping it in my handbag too incase I need to tame my brows throughout the day! 
And last but definitely not least, the final product I've been trying out is the Glow All Out Highlight & Sculpt Cheek Stick. A gorgeous highlighter in a shimmery champagne colour that looks super beautiful swept above cheekbones & across the brow bone. A quick & easy way to add a pop of glow where your face naturally catches the sun, simply twist up the product, dab it on to your skin & smooth over with your fingertips. There is also a blush & bronze stick too to complete your contour with.

What is your favourite item from Soap & Glory? Let me know in the comments below!

#BloggingProblems

It's a frustrating feeling when something you enjoy becomes a chore & in all honestly, thats how I have been feeling about blogging lately. I feel frustrated at myself for neglecting my blog, ignoring my emails & leaving PR samples sitting in their boxes for weeks but it all kind of just happened & here I am over a month since my last post was published. I hate that I can't commit to blogging when I want, I put myself under pressure & then end up burning myself out. With a job, living in a house that we are renovating, having two needy little Pugs to look after & other life things my blog just took a back seat unfortunately. When I get home in an evening all I can think about doing is curling up on the sofa under a pile of blankets with the Pugs. I don't want to go on & on in a negative tone about the blogging part of my life so I've decided I will just blog when I can & stop beating myself up about not sticking to a schedule like I had originally planned. Life isn't hard, I just like a good whinge when things don't work out how I expected them to! 

I had quite a few fun blogging things last month, I got to attend the I Just Love It event where I made my own personalised pizza & took home a goodie bag full of personalised items. I also got invited along to the Tangle Teezer Puppy Party for the launch of their new Pug Love Tangle Teezer. That was one of my favourite days & I was lucky enough to meet Becca Rose & hang out with her handsome Rupert Pug. It's always the best when I can take the Pugs with me & even better when we get to meet other Pugs too! I'll pop up posts to share all the photos I took at the events next week! :)

Another fun thing that happened... we bought a new car! After having old, unreliable cars for years we were finally brave enough to go out & buy ourselves a brand new Mini Cooper last week. I am so so excited, we've always wanted one & can't believe it's finally happening!! Hurry up & deliver our car please Mr Mini!

I've got a beauty post going up tomorrow, yay for being organised, so look out for that! It's been good to sit & type, I feel a lot more relaxed now that I've got a post completed!

Hope you're all having a good week, let me know whats been your best bit!
