London Fashion Week Beauty Bar!

On Monday 21st September, Bloggers Hangout hosted an event in collaboration with London Fashion Week- the Blogger's Beauty Bar! I love LFW, it's such a creative, exciting time of year, and so I was thrilled to be invited to attend this event!

The first thing that blew me away was the venue...I didn't know much about it, so when I was arrived I was really impressed. It was so classy!


Inside, there were several different rooms, but the actual event was held upstairs, in a really stylish warehouse-esque room, with bare brick walls and wooden shutters for the windows, giving it that perfect, artsy London vibe! The event started at 7, and despite getting there on time, the room was already packed, creating a really exciting atmosphere. There were so many brands with stalls we had no idea where to start!








All of the brands were really enthusiastic and great to talk to, which was really encouraging as I have only been to one event prior to this one, so was a little shy! More often…

Things to do before 2016!

I genuinely cannot believe how fast this year has gone...summer seemed to disappear with the blink of an eye and now it's in the run up to Christmas and it will be 2016 before you know it!

I've had a spectacular year, better than I ever could have hoped for! I thought 2014 was going to be hard to beat and definitely deemed that the best year of my life...however, I feel 2015 may have just beaten it! I'm looking forward to seeing what other exciting opportunities 2015 has in store for me, but there's also a lot of things I want to make happen myself before the year is up!

1- Make some decent progress with my magazine journalism course. I started on Monday 5th September, so by December 31st I'd like to be almost half way through the course!

2- Start saving money to go towards a "moving out fund" now that I have not one, not two but three paid jobs!

3- Get Young Britannia's Twitter and Instagram followers to at least 1000, if not 2000!

4- Lose two stone…

Internet Trolls.

"Bitch"

"Whore"

"Pathetic"

"Attention seeker"

"Man hater"

"Embarrassing" 


Don't these words make your skin crawl? When you imagine somebody calling you pathetic? When you picture someone standing right in front of you, looking you in the eye's and calling you a whore?

Don't worry. That's not something I've ever had to deal with.

Instead, I dealt with having these words, plus many more, flung at me almost every day for the vast majority of my teenage life via the "safe" platforms of social media. I've been named and shamed for things I haven't even done, had screenshots of my statuses, blog posts and comments shared on Twitter with hundreds of people making nasty comments. I've had subtweets about me, almost every day.


The worst part is, about 40% of these people were people I called friends. People I spoke to and hung out with regularly. Yet what kind of "friends" favourites an &…
