#BloggersFestival 2016

Last month, I was fortunate enough to be able to get my hands on a ticket to my very first Scarlett London event - #BloggersFestival which was held at the incredible Conrad London St. James Hotel in St James Park on the 3rd of September. I had already seen a lot of the pictures, posts and tweets from the previous year and had decided that this year I couldn't miss the opportunity when it came up. I was not disappointed.

Cosmopolitan #FashFest 2016 - VIP show and party

It's weird to think how quickly the time has gone, but this time last year I was scrolling through evidence of an amazing night out at Cosmopolitan #FashFest 2015. I'm not sure how I came across it in the first place anymore but I had bought tickets for Vanessa and me for her birthday. This year, I got an email through about it again, and before I even had a chance to process it, Vanessa was sent me a screenshot like "have you seen this?!" Needless to say tickets were booked and we were back for round two.

It stops being fun when it's forced

Have you ever felt like this? 

When I was younger I loved writing. I was happy to note down all my little thoughts and every single poem, as long as it was on my terms. The moment someone would tell me I HAD to write something, I would sit and stare at a blank page, putting an enormous amount of pressure on myself to make what they wanted perfect. I hated that stress.
