STYLIST LIVE; Olympia London, COMPETITION Winner, Blogger @ BURTSBEES, @StylistMagazine.

Hey lovely,

I hope you are well and had an enjoyable weekend! 
When BurtsBees direct messaged me, I was so excited but ..also baffled, “Congrats you’ve won 2 tickets to Stylist Live” I hadn’t of bought tickets (yet) as my mac was playing up to buy online & particulary couldn’t remember entering, but then I had realised I post a few things, so to be noticed out of thousands in a competition post, I was so happy. Literally, it had made my week! 
When Stephen and I had arrived at the show, the whole set up was incredible beautiful, as my fellow bloggers would say, “omg so instagrammable”, the decorations were literally “Instagrammable”, every corner had it’s own personality tailored to the brand, or atmospher. Furthermore, a lot of effort and time went into it and the architecture had me blown away. I took along Stephen, my boyfriend with me, he hadn’t of been to any blog/fashion/events with me before, so it was cool and interesting for him to experience this too, both our first time to Stylist Live. When I asked would you come here again, he said yes, and he’s very honest. So it’s for everyone, anyone, for any background, you can find something for yourself! Highly recommened this event!

My total babes had the most beautiful section in the whole event. The flower display made you feel so relaxed; it was extraordinarly pretty!


Thier new collection looks insane, the results of the colours are stunning and leaves your lips feeling nourished and silky! I want the whole collection!

He also takes some excellent epic photos, so of course he snapped up a huge amount of decent photos! I rushed over to BurtsBees, thanked for this opportunity and they kindly surprised me with a gift. A GIFT. on top of the tickets. OMG. I am actually obsessed with skincare, it’s quite embarrasing actually, I have over 2 full boxes of skincare and two smaller skincare boxes with tech face machines, so this was like an icing to the cake. Skincare is a huge deal in my life. It’s something I have never had from BurtsBees or tested in store, so I was more than grateful for this! There will be a seperate blog post all about the products! Then on top of that, I had been given 4 lip blams and 4 skin moisturiers. I was a very happy xtineloves! 

Add to my array of skin care never ending, it looks like a harvey nichols store, ha! I shall blog about the products, individually this week!

In the moment shots are the best- as you can tell I couldn’t stop smiling and laughing all day! 


Pop art- Do you like it?


To say thank you and just because I love him zillions, my boyfriend saw a snoppy old collectable picture frame and I bought it for him. Then he saw this for me, and ironically, it had my name plastered all over it XLOVES… That is me boo, thanks for spotting it out! Ha. I may buy it one day!


What’s the one thing you look out for at events? I look for colour.


Makeover time! 1-2-3 let me be Chrissy Teigen! 


Free Gin when you enter! Wahey! 

There were talks from Reggie Yates Fearne Cotton, book signings, Djs, colouring sections, prizes, quizzes, show and tell, so much to do and see! On top of that, 200 different pop ups! Food & drinks, the lot- We left with two bags of goodies and some presents each and of course the burtsbees prizes! So a lot to blog about next! It was interactive, fun, memorable and most importantly makes you want to go again! 5/5. It was more than what I had in mind, oh and there was an actual catwalk inside in a different room, so hello- all you could ever want as a woman and man, under a roof! Hopefully next time VIP?


On the wishlist!


On the wishlist! obsessed with small designer bags and obviously I do opt for personalised products. So badly would love to collaborate!

      IT WAS SO UP MY STREET! And also my boyfriend was SO HAPPY to just take pictures and perfect everything, seeing someone genuine about your interests and life is just SO attractive. He was in pain and we had to go hospital after, so hes my love and he loves me so thats great he made me happy no matter what its appreciated. And we had a funny day as per usual- so I was oviously in my element. Everyone was SUPER nice and made me feel like a princesss when I was low that night, so it made things 10 x times better and more opportunities from this one was the icing on the cake- thanks!

    Stevie should definitely become a photographer he is very good at blurring out backgrounds and should start working with magazines or events. How wonderful that you won tickets to Stylist Live as well with Burts Bees you must have been so chuffed. I wonder what event you will go to next?

    Reggie Yates? I think I’d full on melt if I was in the same room as him tbh! Sounds like you had an absolutely amazing time and how convenient that you were just about to book tickets but then you won them. It must have been fate for you to attend.

    OMG I’m sure that was so amazing to get a direct message from Burts Bee. I’ve never been to StylistLive, but I’m definitely going to do my research on getting some tickets for their next event. Your boyfriend took some amazing pictures by the way!!
