Last week started with a very exciting day as I was in London filming with F&F! I can finally tell you that it was the Tesco clothing giant F&F who invited myself and three other lovely bloggers down to Shoreditch for a campaign centred around upcyling your clothes and resisting the urge to throw out old items that don’t float your fashion boat anymore! We were split into pairs – I was with the lovely Sabrina from A Little Obsessed – and we swapped an old item from our wardrobe before transforming them into something new and giving them back! I’ll be sharing videos, photos and gifs from the day on my twitter over the next two weeks so make sure you come over and click that follow button @xameliax and add me to your favourite lists!
Back home and at my laptop it was pretty much work work work for the rest of the week but I’m happy to say that I’m well and truly back on the fitness wagon and I made it to so many classes at the gym including converting Joe to Boxing which we did together and had SO much fun! Neither of us could walk for a few days after but we’ve already booked in for this week – even though I’ve lost a LOT of my fitness and I feel like I’m nearly back at the start I couldn’t be more excited to get back into the swing of it and really push my body this time.
On Thursday I was invited back down to London with N07 to a world exclusive and TOP SECRET event for a new product and very exciting collaboration they are announcing. I won’t say any more but if you want to find out the goss then all is revealed in my weekly vlog below! Saturday Joe and I went to Intu Derby for their Spring Fashion event where they had fashion shows from retailers throughout the day and a really great buzz around the centre. I felt inspired by the River Island and Oasis shows and ended up raiding the rails at Primark for some new monochrome fashiony bits so watch out for a Primark haul coming your way soon! We enjoyed lunch at Wagamamas and even picked up some new suitcases ready for Amsterdam in a couple of weeks!
Sunday we went out for a cheeky pizza express and chilled out in front of the TV after having Joe’s parents round for tea the night before – finally caught up on everything we’ve recorded and of course watched the new series of BGT!
I’m now offering one on one makeup lessons over skype for special occasions or simply day to day techniques! We’ll use all of your own makeup so you don’t feel pressured to buy expensive items to re-create the look and I’ll teach you how to do everything step by step. I have limited spaces but if you feel like your makeup needs a spruce up or if you never really learned how to use what you have then drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send over the packages I offer, no pressure, no commitment.
xameliax Weekly Vlog Episode 27
New weekly vlogs every Tuesday at 7pm – Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss out!
This week I’m doing a 5 day digital detox and taking a step back from social media until Saturday. This is something I’ve had planned for a while but I’ve decided to bring it forward a few weeks as a little mental health break and social (media) experiment! We spend so much time looking at our phones these days and comparing our lives to others online neither of which are overly healthy. You won’t see me interacting on instagram, twitter, facebook or snapchat (xaxameliaxax) this week but I’ll be back on Saturday with a very exciting trip (details in my vlog!) and I’ll be writing up a blog on my detox experience too.
I hope you have an amazing week and I’ll see you all next Tuesday!
