Ladies Day Epsom Derby

Ladies Day Epsom Derby

I am super excited as I will be attending my first ever Ladies Day at Epsom Derby on Friday 2nd June.

It has been one of those events that I have always wanted to attend but have just never got round to going to – well now I am!

Every year on the first Friday of June, people gather at the Epsom Downs racecourse for a day of exciting horse racing, music, glamour and fashion!

I have already sorted my dress out, I will be wearing a beautiful nude (of course) dress by the fabulous Chi Chi London. They are the perfect brand I go to when I have a formal event such as this to attend. I would really recommend their dresses if you are ever attending a races day, or perhaps a wedding!

I’ve shown you guys a little sneak peak of my dress below, and will post a full picture of me in the dress on the day.chi chi london  

What I am looking forward to at this Ladies Day is to see all the ladies and gents in their most formal attire! I love that it is tradition for ladies to wear a hat or a fascinator!

I still need to find one to wear myself so if anyone has any suggestions for the perfect fascinator then please do send them my way!

I am going to opt for some simply nude court heels most likely, as these are comfortable yet still elegant and will compliment my dress beautifully.

As I have opted for a nude colour, I most certainly will need a tan.  Luckily I am in Greece from the 21st – 28th May so will hopefully be a nice colour just in time for the Ladies Day 🙂

My hair style will all depend on what hat/fascinator I opt for, but I will most likely do some bouncy waves and leave my hair down as that is when I feel my best.

I have also already prepared my make-up look – I am going to opt for a soft nude colour. My Toofaced sweet peach eyeshadow palette is perfect for this as it has a beautiful array of peachy nude tones and I will wear my trust NYX Cairo lip cream on my lips.

I am honestly so excited! Be sure to follow me on instagram @toularose and snapchat: toula_rose to see pictures from the day of what I get up to!

I believe there is also going to be an after party on the Hyperion lawn that Mark Wright is DJing at.

If you guys fancy heading down for a fabulous day then just head to the website and purchase yourself some tickets!

Hope to see you there!

Blogger Babe Events London

blogger babe events londonSo I am super excited to reveal that I have just launched my very own event company – Blogger Babe Events London

BB Events London specialises in organising spectacular events for Bloggers – cohesively connecting brands and influencers together.

 FASHION|FOOD|LIFESTYLE|TRAVEL

Our events are predominantly London based, however we will be organising several international blogger trips and events.

Why did I start this?

After working in Marketing and Events for a number of years before becoming a blogger, I have experience in both sides of the industry from what it takes to plan and run an excellent event. & of course being a blogger I have plenty of experience in attending events. On average I attend 2/3 events per week so am able to see what works best and what format of events are most successful with fellow bloggers.

Over my time in blogging I have established several relationships with both brands and influencers and therefore have what I need at my fingertips.

With influencers becoming one of the most powerful tools for a brand to reach their consumer, it is a very exciting industry to be in.

What do we do? 

We organise most types of events, from small intimate dinners at a top London restaurant to a full travel campaign abroad.

We have access to some of the top influencers around and can guarantee a huge audience reach for every event we organise.

Every event is tailored specifically to the bloggers and the brands participating. We curate every fine details and each and every event is unique.

A unique collaboration between Art and Fitness

So today’s post is something rather unusual and different to my usual style of posts, it’s all about a unique collaboration between art and fitness.

If you haven’t already heard of Artbeep and you’re a fan of art, then you should certainly go and check them out and sign up for a free account. (If you sign up, you are able to see the prices of all the art they have for sale – it doesn’t cost anything to sign up).

Code TOULA2017 will get you money off until the end of this campaign.

They basically select an amazing array of artists from around the world and offer you to buy unique one off pieces from these artists for a great price. There is truly something for everyone on there. I love just spending time browsing their site and getting to know the artists and the work that they create.

Art is such a fascinating thing to me and I can’t wait to invest in some great pieces in the future when I own my first home and will be for sure checking out Artbeep for those extra special pieces!

Anyway more to the point…

Artbeep have collaborated with the social fitness platform inKin for the ‘one million steps to art challenge’ taking place from the 14th February to the 14th May.

The concept of the challenge is you have to walk on average 11,111 steps per day for over 90 days to get a unique chance to win an original piece of art!

I absolutely love this concept of encouraging fitness and motivating people to walk more in order to win a piece of art!

So for your chance to win a beautiful piece of valuable art and support this unique collaboration with art and fitness, JOIN THE CHALLENGE.

I also have a discount code TOULA2017 which will get you money off any art pieces that take your fancy (valid until the end of the campaign)

Competition time – A Night in with YooMoo

Today’s post is something a little different to my usual – it’s my first ever competition to be held on my blog so I’m very excited to share it with you guys! I’m currently having an early night in because tomorrow morning I am off super early to the airport for a trip away with my boyfriend for New Years eve (all will be revealed on my blog soon) & what better way to spend it than a night in with YooMoo’s delicious frozen yoghurt and the cutest personalised pyjamas I have ever seen?!

Winter is a time for indulgence and I’m not going to lie, I’ve been eating just non stop! But what I love about YooMoo is that it’s a guilt free treat as there is a very low amount of fat and has no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners! I love the taste as it’s not sour like a lot of frozen yoghurts are but it’s also not too sweet it’s just right. I know I said it can be guilt free but I may have ruined it slightly by covering mine with cute sweeties haha but I couldn’t resist.

So if you would like to win you very own hamper with beautiful sundae cups and lots of tasty sweeties to decorate your frozen yoghurt alongside some gorgeous personalised pyjamas with your initials on then follow the below instructions.

Accessories with Abbott Lyon

Today’s post is all about one of my all time favourite British Accessory brands – Abbott Lyon

Abbott Lyon originally started out as just a watch brand but have branches out and now offer a variety of beautifully designed and great quality fashion accessories including sunglasses, shoes and bags.

I originally fell in love with the brand after I had been searching for a simple minimal chain watch and came across this beauties! The Kensington Chain watches are one of the most popular pieces and you can see why. They simply go with any outfit!

If you are looking for an affordable Christmas gift for him or her this year, I would highly recommend one of these watches.

I own these in both silver and gold and I also have a nude leather strap watch and I basically just alternate between the 3 depending on what I’m wearing and my mood 🙂

Abbott Lyon are now stocked with my favs at John Lewis. Check it out here 

I think these watches make the perfect Christmas gift. They are unisex so perfect for both male or female!

By far the best quality but best priced watches I know.

Enjoy lovelies! xoxo
