#BloggersXmas 2016

#BloggersXmas event with Soeurs De Luxe

Last weekend I headed down to Finch's Pub near Moorgate for the annual #BloggersXmas event arranged by Jasmine and Kirsty from SoeursDeLuxe blog.

There was a wide variety of different small scale companies showcasing their latest collections and ranges. 

These included: Jewellery Box, PNY, Skin Fix, Sweet Cheesus, T Plus, Jewelled Buddha, Aromand, Journey Link, Miiko, Type The Hype, Gia London, La Miela, Sheena Bulsara, Katherine Elizabeth, Joe Browns, Blogosphere Magazine AND My Beauty Matches! 

The brands that stood out to me the most where:

Jewelled Buddha - selling scarves and necklaces made from up cycled old sari's. They work with a women's co-operative in India. 

Sweet Chesus - selling gluten free, handmade cheesecakes and come in a huge range of flavours like peanut butter and elderflower. Simply delicious!

Katherine Elizabeth - selling hand made hats, ascot style! Materials come from all over the world and is sourced ethically.

We also received a massive goody bag with lots of stuff in there, so shoutout to.... 

Freeman Beauty
Carabao Energy Drink
Yankee Candle
Saturated Colour
Seascape Island Apothecary

I want to thank Jasmine and Kirsty for inviting me to this event and I look forward to next years #BloggerXmas! :)

My favourite book shops in London

I am a lover of books, book nerd, reading bod, whatever you want to call it!
Here are my favourite book spots in London...

South Kensington Books

Located just outside South Kensington station, I love this little cute and cosy book shop.
They are an independent book seller and much cheaper too. Their books ranges from fiction, to travel and even limited edition finds. 

22 Thurloe St, Kensington, London SW7 2LT

Brick Lane Book Shop

This book shop not only sells books, but they sell literature themed merchandise and cool book related gifts and quirky items. The shop can get quite busy and with limited space, sometimes it is a bit of a struggle to get past other customers! But I really like the modern feel to this shop whilst it is surrounded by vintage shops in Brick Lane.

Waterstones Piccadilly Circus

I can spend the whole day here! 5 floors of books! (There is also a cafe on the lower ground floor and a bar and restaurant on the 5th floor) Probably every book you would want to read can be found here. Travel, poetry, fiction, science, educational, children's, languages, history and politics, art... the list goes on!

203 - 206 Piccadilly, St. James's, London W1J 9HD
