Hi I'm Shani and welcome to my 'fashion and lifestyle blog' that has seen a huge decline in the amount of fashion. I love fashion, clothing and styling so I won't deny that my heart feels a little sad when I realise how little I'm writing about fashion on my site. So, I'm trying to get back into the habit. Here's my favourite outfit from my long weekend in Paris (Paris posts are on their way so keep your eyes peeled for them in the coming week or so).

Hi guys, today I've got a super fun post in the form of the goody bag reveal from the Intu Derby Autumn/Winter 2016 Fashion Event that I attended a couple of weeks ago. I thought it would be nice to talk you through the items that I was very kindly gifted and let you know the items that I'm already using and loving. Hope you enjoy.

As you may know, fashion is one of my favourite things. I love putting outfits together, I love researching trends and I love buying clothes. So, when the lovely PR from Intu Derby invited me to attend their Autumn/Winter Pop-up Fashion Event I didn't hesitate to accept. I wasn't entirely sure what the day would entail but I booked my train and travelled to Derby where I met up with Emma from carpediememmie before the event. We walked from the station to the centre and quickly spotted where the event would be taking place.

It was slightly nerve wracking when we saw a red carpet area cordoned off with the sign 'VIP area' at the side. Me, a VIP? I'm not sure, but it was so nice to have our own area to sit and enjoy the shows. The purpose of the show is to help showcase the range of fashion brands throughout the centre and also to give the audience outfit inspiration for the popular trends of the season. We sat and watched four of the shows where the models danced and showed off the pieces. It's safe to say I fell in love with many of the pieces on display and surprise surprise, the Topshop and River Island outfits left me wanting EVERYTHING.

It was kind of difficult trying to photograph the outfits as the models were dancing but I managed to get a few shots that I really like so I hope that you like them too.



I love bath bombs, usually just in Autumn and Winter when I can think of nothing better than having a Lush bath and snuggling up in my pyjamas with a hot chocolate. So, with that being said, after having an absolute blast at the Leicester Lush Christmas Event (see previous blogpost) I picked up quite a few of their products. So, here's a little haul of the bath bombs and bubble bars that I brought recently. All are from the Christmas collection apart from Intergalactic, which I have to pick up every time I'm in Lush because it's my ultimate favourite.

Without further ado, here are the products I brought along with the name of each.

Integalactic - £4.25

Hi guys, so a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get a place at the Lush Leicester Christmas Event as a blogger! I was so thrilled when I saw I'd been chosen to attend and was eager to see the Christmas and halloween range and some new products (and buy some too). Getting to the event ended up being a little bit of a faff as I also had to enrol on my new college course on the same evening (more on that soon). So I was late for my planned train and got to the event slightly late, whoops. But, I got there in the end and as I stepped in the door I was greeted by the lovely staff, Christmas music playing and of course the most incredible scents. I also got a Lush Lanyard with MY NAME ON IT. DAY = MADE, I will treasure it forever.

As soon as I arrived some of us went upstairs in the shop and got to take part in making a couple of the products. We made Big Blue bath bomb and Creamy Candy bubble bar, it was so cool to see the process that goes into making the products and knowing that the products are all made by hand makes them even more special. Some thing that I love about Lush is their amazing packaging. There are SO MANY options for Christmas gifts along with a 12 Days of Christmas box full of bubble bars and bath bombs. All wrapped in pretty packaging tied up with a pretty little bow.
