Festival Place Blogger Event

Last month I was very kindly invited to the Festival Place blogger event @ Giraffe in Basingstoke.

On arrival we were greeted by the lovely Naomi & Sarah from Festival Place and were swiftly offered some yummy nibbles & refreshments, whilst mingling with the other bloggers.

The guest speaker for the evening was the lovely Melissa Murrell who is a personal stylist & professional shopper - this couldn't have been more perfect for me seeing as Styling is the career route i'm hoping to follow one day. We were given lots of wonderful styling tips and we were all set the task to identify what body shape we had - turns out I have an 'hourglass' figure. It's really useful to gain an understanding of your body shape as clothes make such an impact. We all left with lots of great advice and I've certainly been implementing it whilst shopping! Melissa was really approachable and willing to answer any questions any of us had. The team at Sheer Beauty were also on hand providing manicures, unfortunately i didn't partake as I had already painted my nails prior to the event! Boo!

On our way out we were all given two of the most ridiculous goody bags from Festival Place & Shear Beauty including brands such as Costa Coffee, Lord & Berry, Lush and items  mini hair straighteners and a hairdryer!! (this hairdryer has saved my life after my other one decided to grow legs and disappear for good). Us girls were basically weight lifting back to the car with these.. proof that carrying shopping bags is a form of exercise and anyone who disagrees is wrong.

It was a lovely evening and a big thank you to the ladies at Festival Place & the team at Shear Beauty and Girraffe for organising such a great event.
