A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the second Bullring blogger event of the year, held in the hospitality suite of the iconic shopping venue. The Bullring bloggers events are always lovely, a chance to catch up with some of my favourite bloggers, a showcase for some fabulous fashion, beauty and food brands, and, if your time permits, a chance for a little bit of pampering. It was a wonderful way to start the Christmas celebrations.
This event was a great showcase for many of the brands and, in particular, the personalised gifts stocked by Selfridges this Christmas. The fabulous fun pots of personalised Nutella, beautiful necklaces from Tatty Devine, and, my personal favourite, the fairytale cosmetic bags from Alphabet bags, all received admiring looks from the many bloggers in attendance.
Benefit were offering make up, creating smokey eyes and glossy lips, as well as showcasing their gorgeous Christmas gift sets. Umberto Giannini were creating beehives and glamorous ‘big hair’ looks straight from the era of Bardot and Sophia Loren, using the famous ‘backcomb in a bottle’.
Of course, there was also food and drink. The drinks were served in cute little milk bottles, whilst the centre-piece of the Christmas themed buffet was a gorgeous cookie from Millie’s, and scrummy chocolates from Hotel Chocolat.
A truly lovely night!
Huge thanks once again to Emma Roberts and the team from Bullring for the invitation and the lovely goodie bag.
