TOWIB 4

Yesterday I attended the wonderful TOWIB event (The only way is blogging) hosted by Hayley from London Beauty Queen. This was my first blogging event and in the morning I had been rushing around about what to wear how to get there etc and obviously what are these blogging events like!? After finding where the venue, Tiger Tiger Piccadilly, (not too hard with my handy iPhone;) I walked around, took a few snaps of my outfit and then went back for the start.

It was so nice meeting different bloggers at the beginning and to warm us up we had a talk by Dr Linda about how if you feel good about yourself on the inside it will shine out. Although this was interesting it created a bit of a slow start. 

However!
Following this there were various sessions to go to and I chose Photography 101 [from blogger Jaime from boymeetsfashion.com] then Hair trends and FAQs for hair colour [by Scott Cornwall]. Then we had an hour for lunch where there was a chance to look at the small boutique China Doll Boutique where I bought [I'm a sucka for boutiques!] a beautiful Galaxy print flowy skirt that I will definitely be showing you soon!
After lunch there was a great panel consisting of Poppy, Jayne, Natalie and Emma [click on their names for the links] with Hayley asking them a few questions. We then had another chance to go to the other sessions and I went to Ingredients and beauty buzz words explained [by the two brand managers of Naked]. The whole afternoon was nice and chilled followed by a final open Q&A session with Hayley, Jayne and the hilarious Caroline. Check out my twitter @rheadillon for the tips they shared [I tweeted them all in excitement!]. 

Overall it was a fabulous day! I met some lovely bloggers (sorry if I missed any out: Angela, Angelica, Sian, Petit Papillon de Nuit, Street Princess, Bex Smith, Lucy, Mittens Discovering and so many others that I didn't catch their urls) plus have so many great new blogs to stalk! Just want to say a big thank you to Hayley and highly advise all of you to check out her blog and any other events she hosts. 

Sorry about this really long post but it all needed to be said!
If you attended and I didn't mention you or didn't catch your blog please please leave a comment so i can have a look!

love

P.S. Can you guys recommend any really good deodorants as I always chop and change when it comes to summer and I would love to hear your advice [very random but an afterthought!]

  4. A really good deodorant is the Sure roll-on invisible :) I swore by Dove for years and then one day it just stopped working for me. The Sure one is also on offer at Boots at the moment (a bargainous 84p I think) and it works like magic! Hope this helps xx

  6. Thank you for the mention, and glad to hear you enjoyed the day! Also, I really like Sure's Maximum Protection roll on. You put it on at night and it should last for two days. It's a slightly different formula to the normal one so hopefully it should still work.

  45. This outfit is AWESOME lady! Glad you enjoyed TOWIB, I'd really like to go to the next one - this one got much better reviews than the last.

    I use the Garnier mineral one (white can, green lid), I'm a bit of a sweaty Betty and this works really well.
