Review: Bee Good’s Vanilla & Honey Lip Balm

A & C: we both received one of these super cute lip balms from Bee Good whilst at the #bloggersfestival (to look at our posts about the day click here and here) and we were looking forward to trying them.

Described very aptly by Bee Good as:

“A rich, deeply replenishing lip balm to repair, intensively condition and soothe dry chapped lips.Active ingredients include protective British beeswax, natural source vitamin E, British borage oil; a rich source of skin strengthening essential fatty acids and British echium oil to replenish dry skin”

C: I cannot describe this much better than above as I really enjoyed using a product that contained such lovely ingredients. It helped soften my lips and although vanilla/honey scented it wasn’t over powering so it was perfect for every day use. The perfect way to protect your lips and prepare them for perfect lipstick application!

A: This is so lovely to use, the scent is beautiful, and like Chloe says not too over-powering but just the right amount of vanilla and honey. I’ve been trying to get into the habit of starting my make-up routine with a lip balm to make the lipstick application a little smoother, and this will definitely help me keep the habit because it’s such a good product and a treat to use.

Bee Good was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Caroline – Simon is the chief beekeeper and Caroline was keen to harvest the honey for a skincare range, and so Bee Good was born. They are proud of their British heritage – and of the British Bees, and so they should be because they help them make really lovely products.

Have any of you guys tried any of Bee Good’s products? All products are made from natural ingredients, they never test on animals and they support our British Bees! They also have an amazing skincare range available here, which we plan on ordering from very soon! #twolittleowls

#bloggersfestival: Meet the Brands

A&C: we recently posted a little teaser post, including some of the people we met at the bloggersfestival and a few selfies so now we would like to show you the brands that we met! Scarlett London did an amazing job at getting such lovely brands to showcase their new lines/products and we loved our little sneak peak into the Autumnal trends, here are our favourites/photos:



We started at Quiz Clothing and we loved their designs for next season especially a full length silver sequinned dress – unfortunately we cannot justify spending pennies on something we would probably end up wearing around the house, as we don’t go to many balls!

Urban Outfitters were next, and their Autumn collection looks AMAZING! Chloe fell in love with a beautiful monochrome jumper, which is definitely getting bought when it becomes available online. We love UO anyway, so it was a massive treat to see their future lines before they are released.

Izabelle Hammon were doing manicures with their beautiful nail stickers, unfortunately our nails had studs and glitter on (of course) so we couldn’t have ours done but we got a few treats to take away and try at home.





We then got to try out Bee Good‘s current range of skincare products (who apparently started out by making the products in their kitchen!) and got to take away a lovely honey and vanilla lip balm (and Annie obviously got a bee shaped biscuit to eat later) a review of which will be coming your way soon.

Ecco and Minimum were showcasing their products, and although they weren’t somewhere we normally shop we have definitely changed our minds! Just look at this amazing jacket from Minimum and the Ecco shoes Annie wanted to steal!

We then saw Want Her Dress and their team were lovely. Carol, the owner was especially lovely and we spent ages talking to her about the amazing collection they had brought with them to showcase. They are also running a campaign around body shapes, and dressing for your shape. Want Her Dress aim to dress real women, with real shapes – something we agree with due to our extra lady lumps (sorry this is a little blurry, we had just finished out champange cocktails and it’s the only photo we had of this brand). This was Annie’s favourite dress – a pleated maxi dress in a gorgeous deep green.

Then, we met the Very team and we chatted to a lovely man (we didn’t get his business card which is sad, cos he was nice) and tried to steal (jokes) a dress which Annie was in love with and some sequinned shorts which had Chloe’s name all over them. You seriously need to keep an eye out for their new Autumn clothes as there were so many beauties, we were given a voucher for £10 off their website and I think it will be put to very good use!





We then went to visit Lee Stafford (not Lee himself, alas) where we could discuss our hair problems (basically we have too much/crazy hair) and what products would help. This was great, as it meant everyone got personalised advice and could take a few treats home to try too.



Oriflame were also showcasing some of their beautiful products, which we got some lovely photos of. The colours of the nail varnishes look AMAZING and Francesca was super helpful, talking us through the products and just having a lovely chat in general.



We then met Natalie from Search Laboratory – a digital markteing agency who specialise in PPC and SEO. Natalie was so helpful, explaining about all of the internetty stuff which we definately need to know more about. Again, she was so lovely to chat to, which was one of our favourite things about the event – the fact that people just want to talk and get to know who you are, what you’re about and about your blog.

We apologise for all the photos/rambling, but we hope you enjoyed a little sneak peak into the Autumn trends/lines that will be coming available! Let us know what you think #twolittleowls

*A special thank you to Jennifer from Search Labs for permission to use some of their amazing photos.

Our First Blogging Event: #bloggersfestival

A & C: on Saturday (6th September) we were invited by Scarlett London to our very first bloggers event! We absolutely loved it, and wanted to share our experience with you lovely followers, so apologies in advance for the large amount of photos and excited rambling that may be associated with the next few posts from us – we’ve decided to break the weekend down into a 2 or 3 posts because we managed to fit in so many exciting things.

First of all the event took place at Paramount, Centre Point in London. Probably one of the most amazing venues we have ever seen! The views were amazing and we felt super posh going to an event in such an amazing building.

As we came out of the lift (floor 31!) we were greeted by waitresses with raspberry and strawberry champagne.

We then went round the many different brands areas, which included: Quiz Clothing, Urban Outfitters, BeeGood UK, Izabelle Hammon, Want Her Dress, Very, Lee Stafford, Ecco, Minimum, Oriflame (who brought along Gary Cockerill to do makeovers!), Sweet Pizzas and Search Labs. We took so many photos that we shall be posting about them in a separate post, so we can show you their future collections and the items we loved.

As it was our first blogging event we were unsure of what to expect but it was such a brilliant day. If you haven’t been to a meet up before, it is amazing for networking with brands as well as meeting lots of like minded people (you can take strange pictures/selfies without everyone thinking you are a weirdo). It was great to chat to lots of other bloggers, especially Beth (from Beauty in Beta) and Monica (from MothLoves) both bloggers who we follow and love – check out their blogs, you won’t regret it! We now have plenty of inspiration for posts as well as finding some lovely new blogs to read.

Here’s an obligatory selfie we took whilst we were at the event, looking pretty happy with ourselves. Annie’s hair was super ginger, but she went for the classic winged eyeliner and a matte lipstick in a brownish/nude. Chloe was very daring and wore bright purple lipstick with a grey and silver smokey eye and winged liner. Let us know if you would like a post on how we created these looks!

We have to admit, this is a bit of a teaser post; we shall be posting about all of the amazing brands that showcased and our super exciting goody bags, as well as the rest of our weekend in London in the next few days – so keep following!

Let us know what you think! #twolittleowls
