I’ve had such a fun and busy week this week – from festivals with my family to blogger events and press days. Here’s a little looksie at my week in pictures…
On Sunday my mum, aunt, two cousins and my brothers girlfriend all went to Hyde Park for the last day of their British Summer Time festival. We had an amazing time dancing around to Tom Jones (and waving a pair of lacy knickers I bought as a joke for my mum to throw at the stage!) and we also all really enjoyed Little Mix. They were literally amazing – all have stunning voices, looked gorgeous and did some killer dance moves! Jesy was particularly awesome! My cousin and I went right down to the front and loved their fierce make up in their VT. There are heaps more pictures and videos over on my Instagram page (Instagram.com/emsypickle) including fab covers of Macklemore and Lewis’ Can’t Hold Us, Jason Derulo’s Talk Dirty and Katy Perry’s Dark Horse (which we all thought was better than K-Pez’s version – controversial!!) you can also see what I wore to the festival HERE.
The obligatory selfie! Here I am with my cousin Katie, Mamma Sue and other cousin Sophie loving life watching Boyzone at British Summer Time Festival. And as a quick aside – have you seen Shane from Boyzone recently?! He is literally a walking beard and looks awesome!
How funny is this sign?! I saw it online and had to repost it as it was too good not to be shared!
On Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending an amazing blogger event by Grabble which was held at Andrew Barton’s salon in Covent Garden. I had such a good night and Andrew was so lovely and fun posing for photos with us all – thanks for having me guys! I will have a full post up about the event very soon so watch this space….
Last week on Instagram I was sooo lucky and won a nail polish competition and my prize arrived this week. I am now the lucky owner of the new Barry M Summer Matte and Hi-Shine Gelly Nail Paints hurrah! I was so chuffed as I said at the end of last week’s Midweek Manicure post how I really wanted to try the Summer Matte collection! Thanks guys 🙂 I think I will do a post swatching them all so keep your eyes out for that one!
On Thursday I went along to the House of Fraser Christmas Press Day and got a sneak peek of what’s to come in December. It was really quite surreal to see lots of lovely festive winter items laid out on the hottest day of the year and made me SO excited for Christmas! They had so many lovely pieces and my absolute favourite of the lot was this Ted Baker French Bulldog iPad case. LOOK AT HOW CUTE HE IS!!!! There was also a matching washbag and iPhone cover too swoon! I also got to meet Sabrina from A Little Obsessed which was really cool as hers was one of the first blogs and YouTube channels I started following. There are lots more snaps from the day over on Instagram including THE CUTEST TREE ORNAMENT EVER!
I reached 450 followers on Bloglovin!!! I’m so excited and can’t believe I have another milestone picture to pop into my #InstaLIFE roundups. Thank you so much to everyone who follows me hugs all round! I think I will do a giveaway if I get to 500 followers, what do you think?
A very exciting little envelope came through my door this weekend – my VIB pass to Bloggers Fashion Week! I had lots of fun at #BLFW in March and am so excited to have been invited back as a VIB blogger this year. Let me know if you’re going too! You can find out more about the schedule for the events at www.bloggerslove.co.uk.
A nice scenic shot of the London Eye to finish up. This is literally one of my favourite views in London and I have so many photos taken from exactly the same spot! Luckily this one has sunshine in it hurrah! I went and met an old friend from uni and his girlfriend for an ice cream and chat and it was so nice being down on the Southbank and hearing all their news. I was very jealous I didn’t have tickets to go on the Eye with them as it really is a great attraction and fab way to see the London sights.
So there we go, another week down (and another week closer to Christmas woooo! Gah House of Fraser I shouldn’t be this excited this ridiculously early!) I hope you’ve all had a lovely week too, if you do posts like this too please send me your links as I’d love to have a good nose!
