The Body Shop Manchester Arndale Bloggers Event

Saturday, May 09, 2015

I've been blogging for almost two years now but I'd still consider myself a newbie in the blogging world. On Thursday I had the chance to go to my first bloggers event at The Body Shop in Manchester to celebrate the release of an amazing new range on the 5th of May, including new bronzing items and a couple of vitamin C products!

I was wearing my butterfly bow-tie brooch to the event and styled it with a white short sleeved shirt.



It was a closed door event, so it was a good opportunity to browse all of the products and explore the new ones thoroughly! The event started at 8pm and I was one of the first ones to arrive. We were welcomed with milkshakes, fruit cocktails and lemonade. I went for water - shy and modest! There was also a white chocolate fountain and strawberries we had the chance to enjoy.






The event was carried out by Fiona - she is a skin expert at the Manchester store. Everyone was able to get personal skin consultations, make-overs and could ask any questions they had on anything from foundations to lipsticks. The staff were really friendly, helpful and organised - they made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I also met two lovely bloggers Michelle and Christina, I hope we will see each other soon at another event!

I signed up for a Love Your Body card and received 20% off everything I bought from the shop that night! The card was £5, as you shop you collect stamps towards free gifts (worth £5 and £10) and you'll also receive a gift on your birthday!

This is what I brought home with me.





I really enjoyed the event and I would love to go again!
