    The British Candies Are Coming, The British Candies Are Coming @LondonCandyCo

    If there’s one thing I know best, it’s candy. Give me a sticky, gooey, chewy mixed bag of candy over a hot dinner any day! So it was with great childlike excitement that I attended London Candy Company’s grand opening event in NYC’s West Village this week. It goes without saying that this place is chock full of British candy, and if you think all candy tastes the same, you’re wrong! Candy connoisseurs (I like to think I’m one) will know that there’s a huge difference in the taste, texture and overall yumminess of British sweets. From the smooth, velvety texture of the Cadbury’s Dairy Milk bars to the extra…

    Holly: The New Guest Blogger

    Hey, I’m Holly the new guest blogger at heydoyou! I shall begin by telling you a little bit about myself. I am a British girl living in Brooklyn who made the move to NYC at the end of this summer, after graduating in Anthropology&Cultural Studies. So needless to say I am still fairly new to the city – eager to explore and experience as much as possible! I am a complete magazine junkie, spending far too much of my money on glossy pages full of fashion trends, beauty finds and celebrity gossip. Furthermore  I am a huge foodie and thus love eating out, cooking and discovering new delicious finds. It…

    London Fashion Week @boraaksu

    HeyDoYou is in London for the first time attending London Fashion Week. We got invited to the Bora Aksu show a London-based boutique store originally from Turkey.  He says his main inspiration for the Spring 2013 collection mainly came from Queen Victoria’s grand-daughter, Marie, who became the Queen of Romania in 1922. Apparently she mixed in a lot of Romanian culture without breaking away from her British-ness. Everything has a story. They had some awesome headpieces going on here! Bora says the floral designs came from the love Marie had for her botanical garden in Balchik. Check out my faves: London Fashion Week is held at the Somerset House this…

    @makeupshowlive London Event Carnival Weekend

    Yesterday I went to the Cumberland Place Hotel for London’s Makeup Show Live on Carnival weekend. We met with X-Factor’s makeup artist Natalya Nair and she gave us some insight on celebrity makeup tricks for clients like Dannii Manogue. What I really enjoyed is that she simplified makeup for real women to understand and attribute to their personal way of life. Of course we can’t go through a makeup event with a little catwalk. These girls have amazing skin. Jelly! Along the many exhibitors showcasing new all-natural products, I discovered a gem. Bella Lucce has blown me away with their hand cream. Lemongrass and coconut? OMG. Dying. I don’t want…

    @FoodiesFestival London Event

    When the sun actually does come out, London is absolutely fantastic in the summer. I took a trip to the west and spent the weekend at Battersea Park for the London Foodies Festival. Now, there may not be a patio hanging out on the streets of London, but it appears you can drink literally anywhere outside, including a bus. But that’s not all! They even had ice cream chocolate bars. FOR FREE! I’m freaking out. The ice cream Snickers bar gave me a food-gasm. But beyond all the free food everywhere, you can actually learn a thing or two about making your own food. This guy had some audience members…

    @TheNailsShow London Event Launch

    I know I can’t be the only girl obsessed with nails, and I finally found a place to call home with @TheNailsShow today at CARGO. For £15 at the door you can glam up your nails with other like-minded divas. I got to chat with Nicole, the founder of Total Renewal who created tonights event. She realized the growing need for nail buffs to have a place to shine outside of the salon. As she says, ““Nails have become an accessory, a fashion statement and a part of our regular grooming.” This is the first time I witnessed a manicure show-down. With only 20 minutes to design it was as…
