Last Wednesday I was kindly invited to my first blogger event hosted by Next. I headed down to London just after midday and after a little shopping and an epic walk trying to find the base of the Shard, (it's not as easy as you might think!) I found my way to the gorgeous Hempel Hotel near Hyde Park.
On arrival we were handed a glass of pink champagne and had a chance to view and try out some of the wonderful beauty and home ware products Next have on offer this Christmas.
This beautiful display showcased the new range of women's fragrances,'The tale of four cities' - beauty products and home ware inspired by the fashion capitals of the world. Including New York, (a white floral fragrance with jasmine) Paris, (jasmine, orchid and warm amber) London, (citrus with a musky base) and Milan (fruity, floral and woody!)
I was also surprised to discover that Next sell a whole range of well-known perfume ranging from Marc Jacobs to DKNY, -it's a one stop shop!
In addition there were also some lovelies ladies on hand to offer massages, nail painting and even eyebrow threading, ( yes I did! It was my first time, and probably not the wisest thing to do at an event, I quickly had to rush to the toilets and apply extra foundation on all my red bits! Haha) but needless to say the lady did do a great job.
We were also treated to some lovely food, I had some yummy fish and chips with tartar sauce, washed down with a few more glasses of bubbly.
Plus I had the chance to meet lovely bloggers!! Everyone was so friendly and I had an amazing time talking to you all, even if I did have to leave a little early. Shout out to Rebecca, Emma, Kat and the lovely ladies from CSI Beauty Blog!!
And of course not forgetting the lovely Gemma for inviting me!
To top it all off, on leaving we were handed a beautiful goody bag, with some gorgeous products inside.
Thank you Next!

Hi all!I have recently come back from a lovely trip to London (more to follow on the main reason why I was there!), and was so excited to go into the new Tottenham Court Road Primark. I'd heard really great things about it and it definitely didn't disappoint! I have to admit I really dislike the Oxford Street Primark and have never bought anything in there, it just stresses me out, but this store is new and fresh, the interior is really cool, and there are no clothes on the floor! Yay!
I picked up this lovely black and gold detailed shirt, reduced to £5!
And this pencil skirt for a bargain £7!
I also picked up this lovely gold statement necklace, for £4. I've been looking for one to wear over my knitted jumpers and fell in love with this one.
And lastly I just wanted to show you my new bag, I bought yesterday from a New Look store near my home. I was looking for something functional that would go with almost every outfit I own, and be big enough for all the crap I just have to carry around (just in case!). So this one was perfect and I'm sure I'll get loads of use out of it.
