BLFW Reviews + Tag Video

Whats up everyone!

It's finally Sunday! Today for our blog update, I'll be sharing with you reviews about the products I got to bring home from Bloggers Fashion Week (BLFW) and there is also a video of Wearrior Alia and I, where we'll be answering some questions from the Bloggers Fashion Week Tea Party tag! (The video is right at the end of this post!)


Rucksack by Iris Sandals

Thanks to Bloggers Love, fashion, beauty and lifestyle bloggers in the UK get to experience an event full of amazing opportunities! Some of which included, modelling for emerging and established brands as well as being gifted new and trending products!

1. Frizzi Miracle Worker With Argan Oil by Umberto Giannini.



Umberto Giannini is a multi award winning hair team and one of the most influential names in British hairdressing with 25 years of first-to-market creativity within its salons and its highly successful own brand hair cosmetics. 

The product I brought home with me is the Frizzi Miracle Worker With Argan Oil. It is made of Umberto Giannini's salon formula with ancient repairing remedy and silicone blend which leaves hair protected, supple and full of softness and shine. It is suggested for dry, rebellious hair. 

I've tried this product over 2 weeks already. My hair is a mix of oily and dry. It definitely gets very frizzy. For nights out, they require straightening out with hair straighteners or at least a blow dry with a comb.

One pump of Frizzi was definitely enough to give my hair that instant shine and I also found that the frizz on my hair was dramatically lessened. All you have to do is just apply the product onto your damp hair and dry out as normal!

I would definitely recommend this product. Of course everyone's hair is different but this so far has been one of the best hair care products I've ever tried! They're also very affordable! You can also purchase them from Boots for just £8!


2. LipGlam's Natural Lip Balm



LipGlam is a natural lip balm that uses the power of lanolin to replenish and revitalise your skin. It is said to be highly effective at locking moisture in your skin. It is also a multi-purpose balm which can be used as a dry skin reliever, cuticle ointment, split end soother, eyebrow balm and even as a lip & mascara primer!

The first try was very successful! It is a little hard to squeeze out, the instructions recommend to place in hot water before application. I got a tiny bit onto my lips and evenly spread the product out. I tried this on both matte and cream lipsticks. My lips looked much more supple and my lipstick application was very smooth and even!

I definitely give this product two thumbs up!

3. Just Trade Jewellry



Just Trade is an online fair trade and ethical jewellery shop and a proud member of The British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers. It was founded in 2006 to help fair trade projects with sustainable and long-term routes to market. Using locally-sourced ethical material, Just Trade works together with artisans to create beautiful ethical jewellery and collaborate on designs.

I was lucky to be gifted this gorgeous Triangle Pendent. The brass triangle element is hand cut and polished! It is a versatile piece that can definitely go with a lot of outfits! It's simplicity is also timeless. Definitely perfect for Spring and Summer looks!

4. Iris Sandals Rucksack


Iris Sandals is a luxury sandal and accessory brand that specialises in handmade leather embellished designs encompassing comfort, individuality, elegance and luxury with a fresh approach to fashion and a playful twist. Iris is all about timeless designs inspired by the beauty and colours of nature, uniqueness of cultures and infinite opportunities of material blending. Every collection piece is handmade with exquisite attention to detail, using high quality leather and handpicked materials for embellishment.

Iris designs caught my eye at the Bloggers Fashion Week the most! They were very unique and beautiful. I found them on their Facebook page and contacted the designer and owner of iris to get my hands on this chic leather rucksack! 

It is a spacious backpack that easily fitted my wallet, make up bag and my Lenovo tab! There is a small front pocket which I used to keep my buss pass and rail card. The straps are adjustable and very sturdy! There is also a zipped back pocket for added security. I love the fresh and minimal look from the back pack. It comes in two colours, brown and black. I felt that black leather would fit both casual and smart looks. Although it was a very tough choice because both shades looked amazing!

The shipping was quick and my rucksack came in a box and a lovely tote bag! I also received a beautiful hand written card from Anastasia, the designer and this unique sandal necklace! Anastasia was super friendly and helpful! She was very quick at replying any queries I had about the rucksack. I would say that this rucksack is one of my favourite purchases. I can't wait to bring my rucksack out more often!



I'd like to thank Bloggers Love again for hosting an amazing event and I wish them all the best for their future projects!
Here's our take on the Bloggers Fashion Week Tea Party tag! Hope you enjoy the video!

Wearrior Biographies

AINUL

STATUS: ACTIVE

Hello! Welcome to Wearrior Instinct. I'm Ainul! My style is described best as 'mix and match'. Fashion, to me, is a form of self expression. I dress for myself and I love exploring new and different ways to do it. I believe strongly that we all have the potential to be the best we can be; all we have to do is to follow our (Wearrior) Instinct.



MYUIZZU

STATUS: PAUSE

Hey! I'm Mu'izz. I'm currently taking my masters degree in Political Science at UCL. I would probably say that my fashion style is best described as "Good-boy Oxford look" and I love colours. Although, I am preppy for most of the time, I do also like to mix elements from other fashion style. Right now, I am exploring more of the urban style. For me, Fashion is a platform that expresses and embraces one's individuality. Hopefully, it will inspire you to wear your (Wearrior) instinct! – I am on a research leave at the moment, I will be back soon!



ALIA

STATUS: ACTIVE

Hi! I’m Alia Alkaff, a 20-year-old Graphic Design undergraduate at Norwich University of the Arts. Black enthusiast and a lover of all things minimalistic, which also happens to best describe my style of Fashion. With being a part of Wearrior Instinct it has encouraged me greatly to be proud of what I wear and I hope we as a team will have that effect to bring out your inner Wearrior Instinct!



02FEZ

STATUS: HIATUS

My name is Faiz, but most people call me Fez. I studied at the the University of Leeds and graduated in 2015. I currently run a pop-up based coffee business called Aoyama Coffee. My interests in fashion lie more in on streetwear - and bridging the gap between it and menswear. I'm a fan of the little things in labels that set them apart from others, and my taste is a little unconventional, to say the least. I'm also really into raw denim. I should mention that I'm on hiatus at the moment - but I will be back!



AMSAIMZ

STATUS: ACTIVE

Oh hi there! I run a YouTube channel called AMSAIMA, where I create beauty and styling vlogs. I like to think of my fashion sense as multifaceted - I could dress to the nines with textured garments, look quirky while donning a pair of boyfriend jeans, or go for an alternative retro. Wearrior Instinct doesn’t just provide a space for me to document my looks and write about the pieces I’ve put together, but as I’m all about body positivity, I see this as an opportunity where confidence can be both built and encouraged. Lots of love, Amalsaima (or simply, Amal).
