Being one to never pass up on an opportunity, when Lily and Anna announced that they were taking their Beauty Chat on tour I jumped at the chance! Obviously I also had to involve my loves Vanessa and Sarah as well! 4 of my favourite bloggers in one room, what a dream! It was also in Space NK, need I say more?
So being a Midlander, I chose to go to the Nottingham event which was their final night. After Google maps failed me yet again, we finally stumbled across Space NK and my God it was a good one! It had every brand that you could ever dream of. We were greeted by some lovely ladies and some even lovelier champagne and macaroons! With champagne in hand, we made our way into the small crowd and spotted Anna and Lily. Which was a tad surreal to be honest. The both looked absolutely stunning. After a short peruse around the counters we were gathered around and the Q&A portion of the evening began. To say that the questions were varied would be an understatement. It went from 'whats your favourite jam?' to 'best eye cream for dark circles?' and even 'any plans to get engaged?'. Talk about pressure! The girls were so personable and made it a really fun experience. You sometimes worry that people won't be as they seem on their blog/vlogs, but they were even nicer!
Once the Q&A was over, the shopping began! Anna and Lily were hovering around to lend their expertise and meet people individually. We headed over to them and had the nicest chat. They were genuinely an absolute joy, so nice and friendly. So nice that I went into my word vomit mode and started talking about when I left my handbag in the toilet in Whole Foods! Who does that? I'll blame it on the champagne.
After that the shopping commenced. Tickets for the event were £15 which fully redeemable against purchases so I kind of felt like I had £15 for free! I love how my mind works. I've had my eye on the Sarah Chapman Intense Hydration Booster for a while so that went straight into the basket. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It gives serious hydration, which is something that my skin seems to be lacking in at the moment. I also fancied a Nars satin lip pencil, so I picked up the shade Palais Royal. Which is a really pretty berry toned red. I've already worn it a couple of times and it's such a gorgeous versatile shade. It can be applied quite sheer and patted into the lips for more of a stain or you can build the colour up for a more intense look. Now let's all take a moment to appreciate the GOODY BAG! Of course I was going to spend over £50 anyway, this is me we're talking about after all. This is quite possible the best goody bag I've ever had. It's jam packed full of luxurious brands including Sunday Riley, Oskia, Diptyque to name a few. Some serious gems.
The night ended with Jamie's Italian. Porcini Fettuccine, enough said. I hope that they do more dates because it was a really good night and I know that tickets were quite limited this time around. Thanks again to Anna and Lily. Oh and of course Space NK!
