Crabtree & Evelyn || Event

Hellooo lovelies,

Recently something very exciting happened and I was invited along by the lovely people at Crabtree & Evelyn to a handy tips bloggers event at their Hanover store in Edinburgh. At the moment Crabtree & Evelyn have a handy tips campaign where you can share your beauty tips handed down by your family e.g. mother, sister, granny and stick them onto a big tree in their store where everyone can see them and learn about your tip! I think this is a fab idea and I was so excited to be invited to take part in this especially as it was my first blogging event.

 I was actually quite nervous about going because I was going alone and literally knew nobody but everyone was so super friendly, I actually arrived first so was greeted by the beautiful, friendly Jamie who is actually the PR manager for Crabtree & Evelyn and the store manager Lisa who was also very friendly. This instantly relaxed me and put me at ease and when the other bloggers arrived we all soon got chatting whilst having a pretty cupcake and some mango bellini mmmm! If any of you do get invited to events but are nervous about going alone - don't be! It is so nerve wracking to step out of your comfort zone and turn up to somewhere with a bunch of people you've never met but so many people are in the same boat and everyone is into the same things as you and are friendly and nice. So don't let yourself miss out on things because of nerves.

Crabtree & Evelyn's rebranded mens range! It looks very manly doesn't it!

One thing I absolutely adore about Crabtree & Evelyn is their gorgeous packaging, everything looks so pretty and British!

They even sell the cutest mint packets I think I have eveeer seen!

 Something I learnt from the event about Crabtree & Evelyn that I did not know before was that they actually sell food products (obviously in equally beautiful packaging). Some of these foods included jam, marmalade, biscuits, tea and hot chocolate.. yummy!

I think Crabtree definitely win when it comes to most beautiful perfume bottle! I can't think of many girls who wouldn't want a bottle that looks like this sat on their dressing table!

Ignore my shaky handwriting but this is my beauty tip inspired by my beautiful granny for soft lips, soft hands and soft feet!

 One of my favourite parts of the event was getting polaroid pictures taken by Jamie and it has definitely made me want a polaroid camera so much more! They would be so fabulous for parties!

  I got a lovely hand massage off Fatimah an employee at Crabtree who actually happens to study law at my university too, what a coincidence! She used the pomegranate range on me and I now have baby soft hands so thank you very much for that, I can't get over how soft they are still!!

 Then we were very lucky ladies and treated to a goody bag, yayy! It included their pomegranate hand cream which made me so happy because now I can maintain my lovely soft skin and as you saw from my tip..I love my hand creams! Then we also received two gorgeous nail varnishes from their range and mines are in 'Apple' and 'Wisteria'.

 I hope you enjoyed coming on my little trip with me! Thank you so much to Crabtree & Evelyn for an amazing event and also to all the amazing bloggers who I met and made my experience so enjoyable.
