Hi Everyone. On the 21st February, I was invited to a Nottingham In Fashion Bloggers event, which was hosted at the luxurious Beauty Temple on Queens Street. I had an exclusive preview of their catwalk event which will be held between the 24th and 25th March at the Market square. I've always had a passion for fashion since I was younger. I studied for a fashion design degree in Nottingham which finalised in 2012. Beauty Temple is a remarkable place to relax and be pampered. I would love to recieve a free treatment so that i can experience the salon to it's full potential. After a cocktail it was time for a sneak preview of whats to come during the Nottingham In Fashion event. Nottingham's retailers will be showcasing spring and summer styles.There will be regular catwalks across both days the Nottingham in Fashion is free to attend.

Visiting Green's Mill And Science Centre

Hi everyone Yesterday i visited  Green's Mill  which is a 19th century tower windmill in Sneinton, Nottingham. It used to be owned and operated by scientist called George Green. You can visit the windmill and learn about how flour is made. The award winning organic flour is avaliable at the gift shop to purchase inside the science centre. My vlog of when I visited Green's Mill and Science centre is now live on my YT channel (link in bio) #nottingham #lovenotts #nofilter #windmill #windmills #girlswhotravel #travelgram #lovetotravel #Sneinton #sky #hellofebruary #travel A post shared by Hayley (@bunnymoonstone) on Feb 18, 2017 at 12:24pm PST The Science Centre is a place to play and discover the story of George Green and his achievements. Green's Mill is a special place to me as I used to often in my childhood with my grandparents. They used to take me nearly every weekend to be let loose on the park and in the small science centre to burn off my unlimi

NYX Photo-Loving Primer Review And Swatch

Image
Hi everyone. I have recently been loving NYX Studio Perfecting Photo-Loving Primer which is £10.00 from Boots. The primer is silky and easily absorbs into the skin which creates a smooth surface when foundation and concealer are applied. 3 colours are available which is clear (for large pores and lines), green (to conceal redness) and lavender (to brighten). I brought the clear primer as I have pores on my nose and acne scars to conceal. The primer is a similar to a water consistency and using a little bit of the product goes a long way. I think that the primer makes such a difference to my skin and it gives me more confidence when I wear makeup. Here is a before and after I've applied makeup. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried NYX Photo-Loving primer and your thoughts. I would recommend it. Bunny Hugs, Hayley xxx

My Struggles With Growing A YouTube Channel

Image
Hi everyone. I wanted to share my struggles with growing a YouTube channel. Becoming an online presence is not easy. I think it's one of the most difficult things that I've ever worked towards and 3 years later I would rather still be true to myself because it means never hiding how I truly feel. So here are my struggles with growing a YouTube channel so far... Lack Of Feedback I make videos purely for my own enjoyment and creativity. However, i would like to make this a part of my job one day. So for my goal to be fulfilled I need feedback for my progression and growth. When you have a small channel i feel like this more difficult to obtain due to lack of interaction. The Appeal The appeal of becoming a YouTuber looks easy but the reality of growing a YouTube channel or blog is hard work. I work a little bit every day on my blog and channel for it to keep growing. I feel as though i am a sculptor who has a tiny chisel which chips away at a rock. Sometimes i feel p

NYX Professional Make Up Concealer Wand Review And Swatch

Image
Hi everyone In my recent vlog "Shopping In Nottingham" one of the items which i purchased was NYX professional make up concealer wand in the shade "Fair" CW02. NYX are one of my favourite make up brands as they are affordable, good quality and cruelty-free. I wanted to let you know my thoughts on this product as I have been using it for a couple of days. The concealer feels lightweight on the skin and covers any imperfections or under eye dark circles. The coverage can be built up to suit your needs. Because I have acne scars I feel that I need to build up the concealer to a high coverage.This product is £5.50 at Boots I think this is an excellent price and I would recommend it. Let me know in the comments below if you have tried NYX concealer wands and what you think of them. Bunny Hugs, Hayley xxx
