Cocktails at McQ with Dazed Magazine

On 18/11/2014 by Bonafide Supernova

Last week I was invited to the fourth and final talk held by Dazed and Confused. The stylish evening located at the Alexander McQueen store in Mayfair, kicked off with cocktails provided by Cîroc. After mingling with a few of the other bloggers and press we headed upstairs for a Q&A talk with ex Dazed Digital editor/power blogger Susie Bubble. Susie shared her expertise highlighting what cities to watch out for in the fashion sphere, and the future of fashion blogging. It was an insightful talk and some great advice was gained.


Here are my highlights from what Susie had to say:

“New bloggers should keep their own voice don’t just copy a formula that works”

“Bloggers nowadays can blow up on Instagram, they may not even have to infiltrate the industry to have impact. They may not necessarily need another platform because people like seeing attractive people in nice clothes.”

“Buying Instagram followers, isn’t a good idea you can get found out”

“The blogging industry has changed since I first started, I believe it could still be more diverse, and there could still be more voices”

“I don’t think new cities will necessarily rival the four fashion cities but there are definitely a lot of cities that have something to offer, I’ve recently spent a lot of time in Tokyo the scene there is different, the kids aren’t wearing Alexander Wang for H&M or McQ for example. There are also scenes in Stockholm, Antwerp and India.”

“India is really up and coming in terms of fashion”

“Fashion editor’s like Eva Chen from Lucky magazine, are really utilsing blogging, it’s a great way to encourage readers to read the magazine. Bloggers shouldn’t worry just because editors are doing this, there is still space for new bloggers”

“I once missed the Louis Vuitton show in Paris, it was a rookie mistake, now I’m insanely early for everything”

The evening ended with a DJ set by Mischa Mafia and of course more cocktails!

Trilogy Skincare

On 17/11/2014 by Bonafide Supernova

After missing the opportunity to attend the Trilogy event, they kindly sent me over a few of their products from their range. I was astounded with the amount they sent me, as I am already a really big fan of Trilogy, religiously using the Organic Rosehip oil and Rosapene Night Cream. I definitely didn’t have to think twice about adding these beauties to my skincare routine.

1

Trilogy Gentle Calming Serum £28.50
The Trilogy very gentle calming serum, is a soothing and hydrating serum that can be used morning and night after cleansing your face and neck. The serum is said to calm irritated and intolerant skin by providing light but effective hydration whilst restoring the natural balance of the skin as well as minimising the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This beauty is also a Marie Claire Prix de Marie Claire Finalist.

I use the Trilogy serum morning and night after cleansing my face, with the use of its handy pipette it allows me to use just the right amount of product. Which I find particularly life saving as I hate using to much product and wasting it. The serum has a cool calming feeling when applied and sinks into the skin effortlessly. It keeps my skin feeling fresh and helps to control the oily combination skin that I suffer from, it has easily found its way in my top three serums! The Trilogy serum is fragrance free and dermatologically tested.

3

Vital Moisturising Cream £24.50
The Trilogy vital moisturising cream, is a nourishing hydrating cream that is used for morning routines after cleansing the face. The moisturising cream is said to be a versatile nourishing cream available for all skin types. A non-greasy formula that is quickly absorbing with rosapene, marula and orange flower. The ingredients of the product helps to restore hydration as well as helping to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I use the Trilogy vital moisturising cream after cleansing, toning and using my wonder serum from Trilogy. It sinks into my skin again with ease without adding any extra oils to my combination skin, I apply the moisturising cream right down to my neck. The biggest bonus I find whilst using the moisturising cream, is that it doesn’t make my make-up slip or slide, as I have found some hydrating creams try to restore the skin so much, that after applying foundation it doesn’t stay in place. Not with this piece of magic, it restores hydration, nourishes the skin giving it a healthy glow and keeps my make-up in place.

4

Firming Body Lotion £15.50
The Trilogy firming body lotion, is a nourishing, smoothing and firming body lotion. The body lotion should be massaged into clean skin and can be used all over the body. The firming body lotion is said to moisturise, firm and improve skins elasticity and texture. Mixed with the calming fragrance of lavender, frankincense and rose geranium, your skin with time should feel firmer and more supple.

This is my go to product to use after I have a long bath, I massaged the body lotion in circular motions to ensure my body is absorbing all the ingredients the product has to offer. The body lotion is non greasy and hasn’t got a sticky texture either. Although I may not necessarily need to use a firming body lotion as of yet, I am thoroughly enjoying using this product.

5

Overall the products work hand in hand together, and especially as I have purchased other products from the range they all compliment each other. I certainly can recommend Trilogy to anyone who is looking to indulge in a new brand that you haven’t before. On the Trilogy website you can find products to suit your skin type by using the skincare selector, so be sure to check that out.

Thank you again to the lovely people at Trilogy

All About Avene

On 15/11/2014 by Bonafide Supernova

A few months ago I was introduced to the wonderful brand that is Avene, I was kindly gifted the Xera Calm Balm and Avene Thermal Water Spray from the Pegasus beauty event, and then later was also sent the Xera Calm Cleansing Oil.

Since 1743 the first Hydrotherapy centre was built which has been entirely dedicated to dermatology. Avene spring water has therapeutic properties that are used to address many dermatological conditions and skin concerns. Avene created a full range of skincare products dedicated to those with sensitive skin and alas the Eau Thermale Avene brand was launched. Formulated with their thermal spring water in every product to keep skin hydrated and full of rich natural ingredients, ensures that its anti-irritating soothing properties reduces sensations of discomfort.

The Xera Calm range consists of three products Xera Calm Balm, Xera Calm Cleansing Oil and the Xera Calm Cream. The complete range gives simple easy steps to help elevate irritable skin, dry skin and eczema prone skin.

“Helps to reduce itchiness by 97%” – Avene

I personally suffer from sensitive combination skin but have spouts of eczema that always seems to creep up on me and has done for years. The Xera Calm Balm is more beneficial to someone with dry skin and not combination skin but I do use it religiously on my eczema morning and night, and have seen a dramatic difference in regards to itchiness, it certainly does soothe the skin 100%. I have been loving the Avene Thermal Water and Cleansing Oil within my daily routine. The Cleansing Oil leaves my face and body feeling nourished and enriched as if I do not need to moisturise after coming out of the shower or even just washing my face. It doesn’t leave your skin tight or dry after being in the water, which is what many other products lack. It has officially become a Holy Grail product and when the 400ml runs out I certainly will be purchasing another. The Thermal Water gives you a spritz of life when you have been having a long day, it can be used to set your makeup, for hot sunny days to cool you down, to treat nappy rash or for irritated skin. It is a handy little product which I just cannot get enough of.

The Eau Thermale Avene range has been a huge hit now that it is easily accessible in the UK. I have both my friends and family addicted to the brand.
