#YorkKiehlsXmas Blogger Event

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to Kiehls’ Christmas event in York. After driving to York blasting Justin Bieber, mooching around the Christmas markets, almost getting blown away by the extreme winds, and trying makeup and fragrances in Browns, we finally made it into the warm, toasty Kiehls shop, ready for a night of fun, nibbles, drinks and more! After all of the bloggers hung up their coats, warmed up their hands and introduced themselves, we received a lovely warm welcome from the store manager, Laura, along with the rest of the team. We…

This year, however, for the first time, I will be spending Christmas in my very own house with my boyfriend – eek! – and I decided that I…

Sadly, I am not blessed in the make-up application department. It’s not like I’m really bad and end up with lipstick all over my face and mascara in my eyebrows (not all the time anyway, lol), but neither can I create a wicked smokey eye blend nor chisel my face with exceptional contouring. This doesn’t stop me enjoying make-up or reviewing products that work well for me, but if you want to look for someone with incredible make-up skills, then these are the accounts you need to check out on Instagram… Maya Mia (@maya_mia_y) Of the five make-up extraordinaires I…
