Behind the scenes with Avon

Seeing all the posts from London Fashion Week this week got me feeling all like a fashionista, so I decided to celebrate with writing my first fashion post of 2016!

Last year I got chosen to appear in Avon's brochure advertising a new Black Flare Dress. Experiences like this are one of the many reasons why I LOVE working for Avon. Not only do I get to do a fun job and use fab make-up, but I get days out to be pampered and go on a photo-shoot!

I've never done anything quite like this before so I wasn't sure what to expect. The first thing that caught my eye as I walked in to the studio was the massive table full of amazing food for breakfast - Obviously I spent a good part of the morning eating, it would have been rude not to. Once I'd finished scoffing my face the make-up artists and hair stylists starting doing their thing. I think it's definitely safe to say I could get used to have my hair and make-up done everyday.

Turning 27...

So this weekend I turned 27. Yes, 27! I'll be completely honest, I'd been pretty devastated about it for about a week. Before anyone judges me, I know I'm not like dead old, and I don't class myself as feeling or looking old either. It's just the thought of 'shit, where did the last 7 years go'. I remember when I'd just turned 20, and thought the time in my 20's would be the best, and they've just flown by. Yes they have been great years, and I've done a lot that I wanted to do, and have travelled to some amazing places, but there's still so much left to do.

My best friend recently made a '30 things to do before I'm 30' list - and I thought this was a brilliant idea. I think it would make turning 30 slightly less depressing, because at least you'd have accomplished all these goals.

Anyway, now I've turned 27 I'm actually okay. So I'm going to celebrate with some cake and prosecco while playing with all my presents. All my presents this year actually summed me up pretty well; I love the gym, I love to drink and I love anything Mulberry (and of course the chocolates and gift cards are every girls dream). I also got a few more bottles of prosecco (these had already been drank by the time I came to take the picture), and some nice smellies which I'm looking forward to using!

Here's what I got for my birthday this year….
