I’m so sorry i haven’t blogged much lately. I have been a little uninspired recently & have also been helping my dad out most days at his job :)
So, as most of you will have probably already seen, there was a beauty blogger event in London yesterday for The Body Shop.
I was lucky enough to be invited along with around 30 more gorgeous girlies.
The day started off with me meeting Holly (Hollymae20) & Sophie (Beautymarked19) & we then headed over to Selfridges for a bit of retail therapy before the event started.
I will blog about what i bought in a seperate post. :)
In selfridges we met with more gorgeous girlies and we wandered around for a bit.
The event was in a bar/restaurant called “Sketch“
It was amazing inside. I was like a child at the zoo. haha
The toilets..as you will see…were absolutely amaaaazing. Never before have i been so excited to use the toilets in a public place.
If you haven’t ever been to Sketch, i highly reccommend you do. I’d love to go back with some friends and have some drinky poo’s there.
When we went inside we were greeted with champagne, cute scones, cakes, cucumber sandwiches and fruit.
The set up was sooo cute, and alot of the girlies were oggling at the waiters.
Ryan Phillipe (lookalike) in particular ;)
At the beginning of the event, we were talked through the new products, including the hand cream which is in aid of EPCAT, who are actively working to stop child trafficking & sexual exploitation of children & young people around the UK.
We were also shown (and demonstrated by Chase Ashton on the adorable Laura) the new makeup range for Autumn.
After that we were divided into two groups.
Both groups in turn got to take a trip to The Body Shop shop, and get a sample of anything you wanted and have a look around. After that, we went back and had a talk through the new perfume (which i’d recieved a sample of through the post & absolutely loved) and so we found out all about how they made it, what was in it, the ideas behind the name & we saw an advert that was put together, which was so cute :)
After the event, A majority of the girls went for something to eat, although a few of us (Holly, Sophie & Gemma) weren’t hungry so we went to do a bit more shopping
(stopping off at the apple store before – if you haven’t seen the video of us on youtube yet…please do. haha It’s on Gemma’s channel)
before heading to a bar/club for some cocktails & a plate of tasty nachos just before heading home at 8pm.
I SO nearly missed my train. The man shut the door behind me, and blew his whistle.
I had to stand almost the whole way home…the train was absolutely packed.
The event was so well thought out and the venue was utterly amazing, but it definitely wouldnt have been any of that if all the girlies weren’t there. Everyone is SO lovely & you truely just get along like you’ve known eachother for years. I really wish these events were over a few days as you just dont get the chance to speak properly with everyone, and i always feel so guilty afterwards thinking of people i didnt speak to properly.
The time just goes far too quickly, think it’s because we’re having so much fun :)
I seriously laughed so much.
Thankyou all for a fab day.
Here are some photo’s of the day…

The Goody Bag Contents…
Prior to the event, we all filled in a questionnaire to determine what skin type we were. I have combination skin at the moment, so my results came up with the seaweed range. Everyone had their skintype products in their goodybag. :)
I used some of these today and i am really loving the results so far.
Eeeee, I’m so excited to try it all out. So far i can say im loving everything i’ve tried.
Especially the perfume, it’s gorgeous.
I shall be doing full reviews on everything you see here after i have tested them further :)
and i shall be doing some FOTD’s too.
