Still being fairly new on the blogging scene this was a fantastic opportunity for me to meet fellow bloggers in the North West, and of course find out some fab new blogs to read!!
The event was hosted by Manchester Fashion Week to give all the official MCRFW bloggers a chance to meet before the event itself (only 26 days away!). We sipped champers and enjoyed some scrummy MCRFW cupcakes surrounded by fabulous artwork in the beautiful Castle Gate Galleries in Manchester's Deansgate. Head of Fashion for Manchester Fashion Week, Kirsty Attwood attended and greeted us all, filling us in with details of the event and revealed some little teasers for what the future holds for Manchester Fashion Week, which I can tell you sounds really exciting! It is definitely one to watch (look out London...)
Blogger Meet at Castle Galleries, 26/03/13
Fellow Bloggers: Irene of irenadworld.blogspot.co.uk : Martyna of elmartina.blogspot.co.uk : Alex of alexdphotography.co.uk
Me with lovely fellow bloggers Irene and Alex. I am wearing Monochrome dress from River Island, £28.00
At the event, we also received a fab goody box filled with fabulous treats!
The box contained the following:
1. A free facial and £10 off voucher for the Skin Health Spa in Manchester
2. Firefly, Natural Drinks in Orange and Passion Fruit Flavour, 500ml (Yum!)
3. Seascape, Island Apothecary Refresh Hand Lotion 300ml
4. Anatomicals: Tanatomicals, the Holy Grail for the deathly pale instant +self tan mousse, 150ml
5. Jelly Belly, jellybeans 3x 10g bags
Lucky me! I am loving this months selection of goodies and really looking forward to giving them a proper try out! (The Jelly Belly jellybeans did not last long! I hadn't eaten jellybeans for years and they brought me straight back to my childhood, yummy!)
I am particularly pleased to have received the Seascape hand lotion as I have recently been doing lots of shifts in work on my Jon Richard concession counter in Debenhams and the pesky air conditioning is really drying out my skin! I have particularly noticed me hands have been getting much drier so this is the perfect product for me to try out right now! I have never used a Seascape product before, either, so really interested to see how they work!
Of course I am also over the moon to have received a Tanitomicals fake tan, being from Liverpool, we are known for our love of this particular product so this did put a smile on my face! I am heading out to a fancy dress party this Sat so may try it out prior to this event!
I am also loving the Firefly's 'simple' philosophy of just wanting to quench my thirst! I love the Ornage and Passion fruit flavour and this is definitely a drink I will be purchasing next time I am a little bit parched!
Finally a big Thankyou to the Manchester Fashion Week team for putting together such a great event! I am EVEN MORE excited for fashion week than I was before... if that was even possible!! It is shaping up to be a fantastic event!!
