Body Shop Event

On Friday I was lucky enough to attend the Body Shop event, organised by the lovely Maddie. This was my first blogger event because unfortunately I missed the FABB event as I was working. I went to the event alone and even though I knew that a lot of the other bloggers would know each other already from the FABB event, I wasn't really worried as I had a good feeling that everyone would be really friendly. And I couldn't have been more right! I made some lovely new friends.
We were greeted with glasses of bucks fizz (which we quickly polished off as you can see) and a delicious selection of cake, Millie's cookies and jellies. Naturally, as a secret fatty, I was in my element.

We were then given the opportunity to do what us beauty bloggers do best - sample, swatch and shop. Maddie and her colleagues were on hand to give us advice and tell us more about the products, as well as offering free skin consultations, mini makeovers and hand massages. We were offered 50% off all products so of course we all filled our baskets with skincare, body and hair products and makeup.

Before this event, I really liked the Body Shop. Now, after having a proper look around, learning more about the products and seeing the full range that they offer - I LOVE the Body Shop. Everything in the store smells amazing, the range of products is really impressive and the products are also cruelty free, meaning that none of the products are tested on animals.
At the end of the night, we were all given goodie bags which included six samples of Body Shop products, a Madagascan vanilla flower shower gel and a selection of vouchers for places like Millie's cookies and Pizza Hut. We were also gifted with a huge loaf of freshly baked bread each from the lovely people at the French Oven! It was delicious.

As well as the free goodies we all got, I picked up a few bits with the generous 50% discount - I chose the famous body butter in Satsuma (which I can't stop smelling and forcing other people in my house to smell because it is utterly amazing), a mini body butter in Lemon, the seaweed ionic clay mask, a headband to keep hair off face when applying said clay mask and two gorgeous scented candles in green tea and lemon and mandarine and tangelo (I had no idea the Body Shop sold candles - they smell beautiful).

I am so glad I got to attend this event. I came home with a great selection of products to try out and review for you all, and more importantly, some new beauty blogger friends.
I can't wait for the next event!


Tomorrow an outfit post of what I wore to the event will be going up, hope you enjoy!
