Last week I was invited to attend Spectrum brushes press event for their new collection of marble brushes.
This cruelty free brush brand is Barry born and bred and know their stuff when it comes to brushes that set themselves apart from the rest.
To launch the new whopping 35 piece set, named the Holy Grail set, we were treated to an evening of pampering from Nails Inc, buffet from local veggie and vegan cafe Milgis, and cocktails and bubbles from Candy Kittens and Dirty Martini.
Read on to see what went on in this special evening!
Last week I was invited along to see Pixi’s new Holiday collection at the St Davids Hotel in Cardiff Bay. I’ve always loved Pixi products and I haven’t had the chance to go to London recently to see what’s new so I was excited to see Amanda for a catch up and what was new for this season.
Products from the collection range from £12 and go up to £28, which include pigments, a new Ultimate Beauty Kit and a pack of eyeliners with limited edition colours. There’s also a new skincare product which I’m very excited to try!
Read on to see what products are available this season. Full reviews will follow, but here is a short summary of what products you can find!
Earlier this month I was lucky enough to work on the day when Mark Hill came into store to demonstrate his new Pick and Mix range of hair tools and products. I popped down to have a look at the display and Meet Mark on my lunch break. There was an array of products on display including every wand available to purchase, three demo stations to have your hair done by one of the wands of your choice and a pop up selfie booth. I was told that they had a blogger event in the morning as they assumed that’s why I popped along, I wasn’t invited to but didn’t mind as I got to see the event all day from my counter.
I was very lucky to be invited to Cardiff Debenhams Blogger event where we were treated to a look at some new launches from 4 premium beauty brands. The night would include a rotation of counters where we learnt about skincare, base tips and tricks, colour and getting the perfect brows and liner.
The brands included in this night were Estee Lauder, Dior, Urban Decay and Yves Saint Laurent Beauty.
It’s that time of the year where a bunch of us local welsh bloggers get invited to a get together in Lush to shop and try their new product lines, this time it was for their new limited editions in their Mothers Day and Easter lines. Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars and scrubs were all being demo’d as well as well as mini hand demo’s of face masks and scrubs and hand products. Continue reading “Lush Easter Bloggers Event!”→
I was invited to go along to a ticketed event to celebrate the first birthday of Beauty Studio by Superdrug in Cardiff St Davids 2. I can’t believe it’s been a year since I was invited to the launch of the studio!
The event was for press and for beauty shoppers, where we were given the chance to get selected beauty treatments for free and treated to 10% off with the use of their Beauty Cards.
During the Sk:n launch event in my last post, I was offered one free treatment, with the two options being a Glycolic Peel and a Microdermabrasion.
I opted for the peel, as I have quite bad scarring and uneven skin texture. I booked in for a week after the event. I didn’t know what to expect or what the outcome of the treatment would look like. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the nurse who was doing the Glycolic Peel on my skin and the receptionist. I signed paperwork and got taken into room 1 which was the skin assessment room.
A Glycolic peel removes your top layer of skin, which helps your skin produce new collagen and elastin, and helps with skin concerns such as scarring, unevenness and texture of your skin.
Last week I was invited to attend the Sk:n Clinic opening party at David Lloyd in Cardiff to see what the clinic offered, see live demos and learn more about skin care. The event’s attendees included local press, bloggers, and skin care specialists. Brightly lit, the clinic looked welcoming and clean with its white interior and calming blue colour scheme.
I was invited to attend Lush Cardiff’s seasonal event to showcase their new products. Unfortunately I missed all the demos but I was shown around by their helpful staff to see what they had in store for this season. I went in with a few questions in mind as I feel as though my shower and skincare routine could deal with a freshen up and accidentally spent over my budget, oops!
Beforehand I’d looked online to catch up on products I’d miss out on in the demos so I was clued up before I went in and knew what I wanted.
On the first of March I was invited to attend an afternoon with JoeBloggers, The Crafty Hen and Hillarys to learn how to create some exciting crafts using Hillarys blind fabric.
I was excited to try something different and go to an event that was a change from beauty blogging and it was a refreshing afternoon to create something that I could use and take home!
This event was held in Chapter Arts in Canton, Cardiff. I’d never been before but the building was beautiful and I had a shock to see how big the building actually was. If you haven’t been here please do check it out, it hosts some local talent and live acts.
During the day, we created a book cover, and a fabric bird.
