The Blogger Event: Some Sunday Beauty Schooling


This week I had the awesome opportunity to attend a blogging event at my local pub, The Birdcage, to meet and support some of the lovely beauty blogging ladies of Norwich, as well as local businesses, and it was awesome! (Little mention to Siobhan from The Unexpected Geek and Justine Pendrill - lovely to meet you girls!) The event was held by beauty mavens Flamingo Amy and Love Moi Makeup and the lovely ladies have teamed up to create 'The Sunday Beauty School' - A place to teach their tricks of the trade! We're talking classes in Hair, Makeup - the works - great for a not-so clued up beauty trier, like myself. I was lucky enough to get a front row seat for a night of all things retro...


First up - Hair. Amy ,who's known under the name 'Flamingo Amy' and is usually set up at Flint hairdressers in Norwich,took to the stage to style up some victory rolls. As a lady who loves a bit of texturising spray and to be done with it, I really enjoyed watching Amy get to work on something beyond my abilities! Amy nipped, tucked and pinned, like there was no tomorrow and created the perfect 40's up do.

Moving on to make-up with, Emily from Love Moi Makeup, we were all treated to a modern twist of a classic pin-up look with a bit of glitter thrown in for good measure! Tis the season and all that. The bold red lip with a touch of sparkle looked beautiful on our model, but I was all about the highlighter. With samples provided by TheBalm, I was all over the Cindy-Lou Minizer! I may have even purchased it the next morning... I definitely did.

Of-course, no look is complete without the perfect outfit and to provide that for us, were local business Vanilla. Styled head to toe with pieces from their store, the look was complete!


A little bit of mingling, awesome food provided by She Blends, and a lap around the room later - I had had my own mini-makeover. Amy kindly styled my hair into a 30's red carpet worthy barnet (Which I shall be trying to re-create myself - fingers crossed) and I had my first ever manicure by Betty's Beauty - and it's still going strong! I chose a slate colour that is almost blue, but kind of grey and I love that! An Almost there, but not quite, shade. (Instagram picture to come!)

With a goody-bag-to-go, what more could a girl want? A bloom'in great blogger event, with the best beauty babes.
