Sunday 27th April was the big day! My sister Mia (Pretty Eclectic) has been planning the meet-up since December with a bit of help from me and she worked so hard planning it all and organising the goody bags so we were really excited for the big day and to meet everybody! Warning: This is a very long post!
We took this photo on Mia’s camera on the self-timer so Mia quickly had to run back down the steps to get in the picture haha!
Here is my first ever OOTD! I wore:
Black Jeggings from Dorothy Perkins, Black Peplum Top from New Look,
Ankle Boots from New Look(similar),
Lily Belle Clutch Bag from Paul for our 1 Year Anniversary,
a beautiful Amethyst necklace that Mia bought me for my 21st Birthday and my Michael Kors watch!
After getting all the goody bags inside Pizza Express at 11:30am and getting myself a parking ticket (well done me), we all met at Revolutions at 12pm and had a few cheeky cocktails then the lovely Becky from Harlequin Cosmetics came to talk to us about her range of homemade skincare products! I was really excited as you all know I love natural products and the ingredients in Becky’s products were pretty darn good; from cocoa butter in the body butters to a three ingredient lip balm – everything was right up my street!
SLS-free shower gels, gorgeous soaps and some lovely scented soap samples that Becky kindly made for us to take away! The cocoa mint one smells delicious! Becky also has a range of lip balms and different scented soaps for various skin types and some awesome body butters! You can visit her website here.
We had a lot of companies that provided prizes for the raffle that we held at Revolutions such as Bodhi Skincare (Bodhi), SensatioNail Kit (Sparkle PR), Mandara Spa (Monty PR), MakeBelieve Beauty Instant Bronzer, Anne de Jeunesse and BalanceMe. I was very jealous of Ngoni as she won the gorgeous Jasmine Falls Bodhi Gift Set!
The lovely Sophie, Maddi & Martyn gave us a tour of the shop, talking to us about all of the products, from skincare to bathbombs, to their Emotional Brilliance Wheel & their spas! Oooh the LUSH spas sound so good I definitely want to visit one soon!
I was super chuffed when they were giving us the tour to find out that LUSH now offer four of their products as “Self Preserving” meaning that they don’t contain parabens or any other synthetic preservatives. I was really intrigued and Sophie explained that they’ve added certain ingredients like extra Almond Oil and then Glycerin to help preserve the products and they still last up to a year! They also make natural deodorants which really excited me and I ended up buying The Greeench, which comes as a powder. I’ve been using it since Sunday and so far so good! Stay tuned for a full review!
