This evening, I was lucky enough to have been invited to the Garden Celebrations hosted by Crabtree & Evelyn in Nottingham.
Greeted on arrival with a Bucks Fizz flute, sandwiches with fillings to die for, delightful shortbread biscuits and the warm, friendly smiles of the staff and fellow bloggers, it was a brilliant opportunity to mingle and meet like minded writers with a love for beauty and lifestyle. This was my first ever blog event so I was a little nervous with a hint of worry and a side order of excited! I wasn’t sure what to expect or how to prepare for this but I needn’t have worried. It was such a relaxed, laid back and comfortable launch and such a great opportunity to bring people together.
Amongst all the lovely people who attended were of course the products. The beautiful, beautiful products. After browsing the tables and shelves of perfectly placed pamper items, taking in all the wonderful and rather aptly named smells of spring and salivating over the flavours of the teas and biscuits, I was treated to a lovely hand treatment with the Somerset Meadow cream from the new Gardeners range. As cliche as it sounds, it smelt of happiness! I could just imagine myself frolicking through a field of luxurious green grass.
If that wasn’t enough, those who attended were able to take home a gorgeous little goodie bag containing Summer Hill Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy, C&E Nail Lacquer and a sample of the amazing Pear & Pink Magnolia Fragrance. A massive thank you to Crabtree & Evelyn and also to Gemma for organising and inviting me to this brilliant event.
