Last Thursday saw the first Bullring Bloggers event, which combined beauty, food and fashion previews for the coming season. The event was held in the hospitality suite hidden within the Bullring, and I was lucky enough to receive an invitation to what was a lovely evening of all my favourite things.
The evening started with two style presentations. The first was a curl session from Umberto Giannini, with a focus on the latest Curl Friends products that have been such a big story this summer. The second session was taken by my lovely friend Elca Jeffers and looked at the new Autumn collections from Karen Millen, and, in particular, the departure in style from being a brand closely associated with occasion-wear, to a brand producing collections influenced by the photography of David Bailey.
With the sessions over, there was a lot of opportunity to check out the brands who were exhibiting. There were make-over tips and try-outs from Urban Decay, these proved to be really popular. Shu Uemura were showcasing some beautiful summer colours in gorgeous new packaging, I must admit I totally fell in love with these. Kiehls were on hand to showcase a product that I am hoping to try soon, the ‘Calendula deep cleansing foaming wash’, (You can view it here) whilst Clarins demonstrated just why their ‘Double Serum‘ is so best-selling.
There was some fabulous food on the night courtesy of Wagamama ( a pretty amazing warm chilli chicken salad) and Nando’s. Folli Follie also had a display of some of their latest must haves, with an orange bag that was top of most of our Autumn wish lists. And, just when it seemed the night couldn’t get any better, we were presented with an individual gift bag which contained the most wonderful gift from Tatty Devine – a personalised necklace. How brilliant is this!
