Happy Monday loves!
My previous ‘what I’ve been up to last week’ post did really well so I thought I would do another one this week. It’s always fun to see what bloggers are getting up to and what’s new in the bloggersphere.
Last week was very hectic for me, as much as I love attending events I’m struggling to balance my full-time job with blogging commitments and as a result end up tired, exhausted and run-down for the duration of the week.
Benefit Cosmetics Brow Launch – my week started on Wednesday when I visited the Good Ship Benefit for the first time. For anyone who doesn’t have a clue what I’m talking about, Benefit has rented a boat along the Embankment for a few months, where members of the general public can dine in one of the many restaurants on board, practice yoga on the roof deck or attend events. You may have noticed that Benefit flew a variety of influencers to Las Vegas recently for the reveal of the new brow collection (obviously I wasn’t one of them lol) but the UK launch was just as good (minus the sun and all the gambling). I got the chance to meet the team, catch up with blogging friends and of course test out all the new products (16 to be precise) in the brow collection.
New Look Press Day – the first press day of the week I attended. I bumped into my gal pal Vickys beauty on the way and we explored the new collection together. The set-up was amazing and they even had a kitchen upstairs serving food and cocktails (something I’ve never seen at a press day before).
Kurt Geiger Press Day – on Thursday I made my way over to Farringdon to visit the Kurt Geiger HQ for their press day. The staff were lovely and the new collection of accessories were jaw-dropping! I’m a huge fan of their shoes so I’m looking forward to the new collection of boots.
Matalan Press Day – a brand I’m not too familiar with (tbh I’ve never stepped foot inside Matalan in my life) so it was fun learning about the brand. I made some lovely new blogger friends and the new collection looked fab!
Debenhams Press Day – I know I’ve mentioned this countless times already but anything in relation to Debenhams just takes me back to my student days when I used to work for the brand. It’s always lovely catching up with the PR team and I always forget how overwhelming their collections are as they stock so many different brands. This was by far the biggest press day I’ve attended this year, the venue alone was outstanding and the home ware was definitely my favourite! I also ran into the beautiful Becca Rose (not at all relevant but I’ve been a huge fan of hers for years so to finally meet her was the highlight of my day hehe).
If you’re really intrigued by what I got up to and want to see it all in live action (I’m sure you don’t) but I managed to vlog it all for my YouTube channel so take a look here.
Have a lovely start to the week!
