Southampton 'Business Woman Of The Future' 2012!

Top - Bottom: Finalists at the Grand Cafe, Black dress from Forever Unique, Me in the Daily Echo Newspaper!, my mum and I, My beautiful glass award, The Grand Cafe, Finalists and finally, an awful photo (love how many chins I have here) of me receiving my award.

Over the past couple of weeks, I've go on and on about the 'Venus Business Woman Awards' on my twitter, facebook etc. I was absolutely delighted to have made in to the Final three for both regions in Dorset and Southampton and as you can probably tell by the photos, I won 'Business Woman of the Future' for Southampton!!

The awards have been running for three years but this was the first year they were taken to Southampton. The event was held at the Grand Cafe, where apparently the first class passengers dined before getting on the Titanic! There were several awards for different categories for example, Business Mother, PA of the Year, Special Woman and Green Business to name a few. The Beauty Closet got through to the semi-finals in the 'Dot Com' awards too which is absolutely fantastic, especially as I have only had it 7 months!

It is an absolute honour to be recognised for all the hard work I've put in so far. There were so many inspiring woman there, all of which were totally deserving of their awards. It really does many me look forward to the future and what it holds for me.

Thank you again for all your support, love, messages etc... It definitely boosts my confidence and has changed me as person. I look back at that girl who made her first video on YouTube one year ago, and think how much more confident and proud of myself I am now.

Speech over, I hope your all enjoy the weather, I have a cheeky vlog from this night too which I will get up asap, just my internet isn't being my bestest of friends right now!

I'm so happy right now, such a lucky girl.

Thank you once again,

What's In My Daily Make-Up Bag?

I recently invested in this super cute make-up bag from River Island - mainly because it has two pockets which is great - especially if it is my time of the month! But its a good quality and I can't help but lurrvveee the floral design and gold plaque detailing. Cute!

Soap & Glory Hand Maid
H&M Clip
Brown Hair Band
Kleenex Tissues (cute lace design!)
Extra Gum
EcoTools Bronzer Brush
Elf Kabuki Brush
Revlon Strawberry Shortcake Lip Butter
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Perfume 
Barry M Mirror
Carmex Strawberry Lip Balm
Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer

I'm amazed it all fits into the bag to be honest! Loving my new bronzer, it leaves such a nice finish and definitely makes me want to be more tanned! I can't go anywhere without Soap & Glory Hand Maid, just knowing I've got it (especially round college) just in case! What essentials do you carry with you?

Recent Beauty Buys!

I just filmed a haul for my Chanel including new clothes and shoes but I thought I would give you a sneak peak of the beauty things I've purchased recently. Will be sure to let you know whats good!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - yes, I have two shades, not something I planned but I definitely underestimated how pale I actually am! I originally bought 200 Soft Ivory but had to pick up 100 Ivory which will hopefully match better.

Garnier 2-in-1 Tinted Eye Roll On - I've been wanting this for a while to help my dark under-eye circles and when I saw it on offer for half price in superdrug, I had to give it a go!

Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer - I've heard so many great things about this so thought it was about time I tried it out myself. I picked up shade 51, looking forward to contouring with it!

Strawberry Carmex Lipbalm - Again, saw this on offer for roughly £1.60 and wanted to try it! I've had the tub before but hate having messy fingers. I love that it had SPF 15 in too.

Johnson's Baby Cotton Pads - Got these in the 99p store, perfect for removing make up with Bioderma!

Dove Intense Repair Shampoo - Also found this for only 99p, a back up because I love it so much recently and noticed my brother has been pinching it too!

Pure Coconut Glossing Spray - This was £2.99 in superdrug, claims to leave your hair shiny and reduce frizz. I just lurrrveee the smell!

Dove Go Fresh Deodorant - I added this in my April Favs, such a good deodorant and again, the smell is lovely, pomegrante and lemon.

Gillet Stain Care Shaving Gel - I've been loving the turquoise version of this so when I saw it on the self in the 99p store, I thought it was worth trying or keeping as as back up!
