At the end of last week, I popped along to Intu Metro-Centre with Rachel and Laura for the Style Garden Event. No photographs I have taken can do this event justice for how truly beautiful it was. I felt like I was at the worlds best garden party filled with beautiful brands, beautiful people and beautiful clothes.
The event was in collaboration with House of Fraser and featured a huge selection of different beauty brands such as Decleor, Kiehls, Creme De La Mer and Murad. Plus a huge selection of clothes handpicked from stores within Intu Metro Centre itself.
On arrival, we were greeted with prosecco and bellini’s thanks to Oh You Pretty things and nibbles from Bella Italia, which sadly I didn’t get a chance to try. After a tipple or two, we started to have a wander around to chat to all the different brands.
Next, we headed over to Decleor for a mini demonstration of a few of their products. We even got whisked away to have a peek at their beauty room, which is well and truly hidden in the back of House of Fraser. You really are missing a treat as its the most amazing and relaxing place I have ever been in and I could have so easily had laid down for a nap there and then. In our goody bag, we received a voucher to go have a facial in the beauty rooms which I am so excited for – I just need to find a day where I’m free to head over and get a pamper.
After a little mooch around and a fair few cocktails we all sat down for a little fashion demonstration from Intu Metro Centre’s very own stylist Michaela Dale. Here we went through the upcoming trends for the spring and summer season including brights, cut out/lace designs and without a doubt my favourite trend, stripes. I may have found the most perfect striped shirt ever thanks to Whistles which is sadly way out of my price range, but I got some amazing ideas of how to mix my stripes and lots of inspiration for my spring and summer wardrobe.
I really enjoyed chatting to all the different skincare brands like Liz Earle, Kiehls and Murad as I’ve really found myself leaning more towards skincare products than makeup products at the moment. I finally had my skin analyzed by Kiehls and that my skin type is basically what I suspected it was. But now I’ve officially had it confirmed I feel I can really start treating it in the best way I can. Spring/Summer 16 shall be the summer of glorious skin and hopefully looser fitting trousers.
