As it's you, our beautiful readers, who got us here in the first place, we'd like to share our excitement with you are letting you 'Get Ready With Us' in 2 sneak peak posts :)
1 week to go! We are getting very excited to Company Blog awards and as the 7 day countdown is well underway there are some serious fashion and beauty prepping going on behind TSOP's doors! Amy and myself have never heavily been into beauty and make up, infact this is our first post like this! But it's nice to share with you our secrets as well as our style tips. Miss Guided have been amazing in providing us with my beauty and style needs for the awards so massive thank you for this MG :-) Thank you so much for all your support with TSOP we are so proud to be in the awards again and it's all down to you guys! I hope you enjoy my getting ready post- my little dog Roxy even joined in for the fun! All product featured is linked below....
I am a huge fan of Origins skin care. I honestly feel like my skin gets so battered living in London and needs time to repair quickly and be hydrated. The Origins Energy-Boosting Moisturizer makes my skin look and feel amazing. I especially like it for moisturising my eyes and make them feel awake and bright. Also prior to the event over the next week I will use twice the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask which does wonders to my skin and restores hydration and makes it look glowing and healthy! I never used to be into proper skincare until I tried these products and saw the amazing results. I will also keep my skin tanned by using the St.Tropez everyday moisturizer!
I have to admit I am a lazy girl when it comes to hair and have always been into the roll out of bed messy look! For the awards I am going to of course style it up probably with loose curls and a floral headband from Crown & Glory. Product wise I swear by Aussie Serum to keep the frizz away and a quick spritz of hairspray to keep it in place!
For me my make-up is always based around the statement lip colour and big eyes. I will be using the Barry M Smokin' Hot Shadow & Blush Palette to do a smoky eye and a pink cheek to look fresh on the night! I will be using Barry M Lip Paint In Coral Blush for a nice bright statement lip that goes with my dress :-) I swear by Benefit Browzings for groomed and defined brows and a line of eyeliner i'll be good to go! I also love Soap & Glory Peach Party Blusher & Bronzer I use the lighter shade as a highlighter on my cheek bones and in the corner of my eyes to brighten them up.
For the awards I am going to wear a nice coral colour underneath this amazing Barry M Treasure Chest Glitter Nail Polish I love big gold glitter and thinks it looks super sparkly for the awards night!
Music & Drinks
I have been finding a reason to drink my champagne for a while now and this is definitely it! Amy can let her hair down for the first time since having Ivy and we will both definitely be toasting to a successful year of TSOP and another year of being best friends, success and a baby :-)
Music wise I will be getting ready to a 80s mix! I love trashy 80s music and particularly love this mix on Soundcloud... Listen HERE!
A quick preview of my accessories for the awards are my 3D floral clutch which work perfectly with my new Miss Guided Platforms. I like the feel good when I'm getting ready to went for this AMAZING Monochrome Co-rd which makes me feel super confident and tanned! The Coral Blazer and Headchain are also from Miss Guided! Amy and myself have some pretty exciting outfits for the awards next week so stay tuned for snaps!
Hope you enjoyed this post guys it was a nice little change for us than our normal outfit posts :-)
