DIOR X TESSI

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of going down to Birmingham for a Christmas masterclass at DIOR with the makeup artist and blogger Tessi Artistry. I had an amazing day meeting her and watching her do her thing on her beautiful model.
I was welcomed by the staff at DIOR and they made sure I felt at home and relaxed. As a blogger, this was my first proper event/masterclass that I have ever been too, so I was extremely nervous as I was there on my own, but I soon started to relax.
Tessi created a full makeup look on her model using the new DIOR Christmas range and I’m not just saying this but all the products she used looked amazing on the model’s skin. Having never used any DIOR makeup products before, I was very intrigued and needed to know more, so after Tessi had finished the look she then took us to the makeup where we could try it on ourselves and get matched by the experts. It was an amazing day and you also got given a goody bag with lots of samplers and miniatures of some DIOR products, one thing that I did purchase myself was the backstage foundation as it looked too good to leave behind.

DIOR BACKSTAGE FACE AND BODY FOUNDATION – when I watched Tessi use this foundation, I was amazed by how natural and flawless it looked on the skin. The product is a medium coverage however is easily buildable to create a higher coverage base. The foundation itself is enriched with beauty-enhancing pigments, it is waterproof and can resist extreme conditions such as workout sessions and a humid environment. The foundation comes in 40 shades and retails at £29.00

DIOR SAUVAGE – Sauvage is one of DIOR’S top selling men’s aftershaves as well as being a personal favourite of my own, it makes a perfect present for dads, brothers and boyfriends and the scent stays put all day. The aftershave comes in 60ml and 100ml and retail from £64.00 – £87.00
DIOR J’ADORE – I have never tried J’adore but again it is one of DIOR’S top selling women’s perfumes. Like Sauvage, J’adore would make a lovely present for somebody. The perfume comes in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml and retail from £54.00 – £110.00
DIOR MISS DIOR – Another one that I haven’t tried but I am so excited for!

The perfume comes in 30ml, 50ml, 100ml and 150ml and retail from £54.00 – £138.00

My timeline so far

Today I have a slightly different post, I’ve decided to share with you my life so far, there has been many ups and quite a few downs, so if you would like to know more about me then carry on reading!

 

I was born on the 2nd of July 1998 a few miles from my hometown, when I was 2 years old, my mum and dad got married and I was a bridesmaid (a very grumpy bridesmaid). I started playgroup/nursery also when I was around 2 and then started my school years shortly after. Where I live you have 3 schools, first school, middle school and high school. I attended my first school up until year 5 where I then went to middle school until year 9 where I then went to high school.

During my second year in high school (year 10) I became very poorly and had to have a lot of time away from school. I was suffering with nose bleeds for around a year prior to this, and I had a blood test in November 2012 as I was constantly tired and always feeling faint and short of breath, a few hours after having the blood test my mum received a call telling her to get to the local hospital as soon as possible, I was only 14 so I was extremely scared as id never had to go to the hospital before, I had some more blood taken and a canula put in my hand, I then had to stay in hospital for a week as I needed a blood transfusion and had to have multiple tests and scans. I was then referred to Birmingham children’s hospital as I had a tumour in my liver. I had several tests and scans at this hospital and a biopsy. I had the results of the biopsy on the 17th December 2012 where I got that the tumour was cancerous and I needed to be back down the following day to be admitted into hospital to have the tumour removed on the 19th December, my operation was 9 hours long. After this I spent months in and out of hospital with infections, bile problems etc, I also had to have an ng tube (feeding tube) for nearly a year afterwards. I went back to school about half way through the year and then sat my GCSE’s in year 11.

In 2014 I left high school, but I went back to the sixth form that was situated within the school, I had no idea what job I wanted to do so I decided to take a BTEC in Health and Social Care and Additional Science. In 2015 I started my blog and I have been writing on and off since then. In my last year of sixth form (2016) I decided I wanted a job, so I got a job at Costa Coffee and I built my way up to become a Barista Maestro, I then left Costa to start an apprenticeship in hairdressing, but this didn’t last long as I was diagnosed with cancer again in November 2016, I worked in the salon up until new year but I decided to go back to Costa as It was closer to home and they knew my situation.

In January 2017 my doctors decided to send me for a liver transplant assessment, this was 2 days at the Queen Elizabeth in Birmingham and on the 13th January, I was put onto the waiting list for a liver. I carried on working as well as having to go back to Birmingham every 6 weeks for scans and blood tests. In March 2017 the oncologist doctors decided they were going to do a TACE (chemotherapy beads targeting the affected area rather than the whole body) so I was admitted for that and I had the procedure, I stayed awake throughout it and they didn’t end up doing the procedure as they couldn’t see the veins/artery’s which are feeding the tumour. In the April, I started dating my boyfriend however we had known each other for around 5 months prior.

In September 2017 I left my job at Costa and I got another job at Sainsburys working on the clothing department in October where I work now. I am still awaiting my Liver transplant, so fingers crossed it comes soon 😊
