Bloggers Beauty Event & A Treat For Me!!

Today I have been up to London Town to help at a Beauty Blogger Event for Work.
I work for The Body Shop International, in there UK Market.
They had this fab idea back in the spring to host a beauty blogger event, which I attended to talk through skincare products.
Attending the event inpsired me to start my own blog & the girls I met there have given me a lot of support over the last few months.
So today we hosted our second Beauty Bogger Event at Sketch in London and it was fab.
We had a group of the previous attendees come in the morning and a group of 30 new (to us) blogger's come in the afternoon.
We had great sessions today and it was soo nice to see familiar faces from the last event and to meet new ones too.
We have product developers talk them through new products that are yet to launch, Chase Aston Make Celebrity Make Up artist creates amazing make up looks, a store visit, Q&A sessions and a fab goodie bag.

(Photos to come soon)

Sketch is just off Regents Street and is an amazing Bar/Night Club/ Restaurant.
The decoration is out of this world, with beautiful original art installations all around the building.
Pop in for a nosey if your ever in the area.
As I was just off Regent Street and could see Liberties in my sights I just had to make a quick trip in my lunch break!!!!
The current theme is "Liberty Celebrates Prints Charming" The windows are fab so I took some of photos for you to see, and some of the Haberdashery department.

I got completely overcome in the Haberdashery department, so treated myself to the following
A Rotary Cutter
Some Stripy Ribbons
3 Embroidery Silks
30cm of Erin McMorris for Free Spirit Bird Print Fabric
30cm of Erin McMorris for Free Spirit Blob Pattern Fabric
30cm of Daisy Chain by Amy Butler - and I was gutted when the lovely sales assistant told me Amy herself had been in Liberty's on Tuesday signing her new book!!!

So today has been long, hot and tiring but completely worthwhile.

It was Lovely to meet more fellow blogger and I am looking forward to reading your blogs.

Have a lovely weekend, Sophie xxxx

What a great event! I adore Liberty, and it's intereting to note that the French do too, even though they normally go for a less floral/printed style.

Sound's like you had fun! I may just have to pop up to Liberty soon judging from your fab purchases!

Lots of Love
