my body shop experience.


I recently paid a visit to my local Body Shop as they were doing a special event evening. Members of the loyalty card got a discount on top of any current promotions in the store as well as a free gift. I am a huge fan of thier body butters and I am constantly stocking up when they have sales and promotions, but surprisingly enough, I didn't have a loyalty card.


As well as wanting to try out something from their new Honeymania collection, I was also on the hunt for some new skincare, so I took this opportunity to go into store and try my luck. 
I have to say, the girls in the store that day were AMAZING. I had three girls telling me about a whole range of different products; telling me about their experiences, explaining how they would benefit my skin and letting me test out the products. I didn't feel as though they were pushing me to buy products (which I hate!), but they were genuinely asking about that type of skin I had and what problems I had with my skin, then using this information to recommend products from different ranges within the store. 

I did end up signing up to the Love Your Body rewards card and getting a bunch of stuff so I thought I'd also do a little haul.

honeymania body butter - £13 £6.50 / tea tree night lotion - £9 / vitamin c microdermabrasion - £13 / tea tree facial wash - £5 free

And these were my free gifts:

chocomania body scrub - £12.50 free / vitamin e moisture mask - £12 free / vitamin c face spritz - £9 free

As this is my first time really using a lot of Body Shop skincare products, I'm very eager to try all of them and see what the results are.

Do you use Body Shop skincare? Would you recommend their products? How is your Body Shop experience?

jewellery wish list - tresor paris.

Not too long ago, I was invited along to the VIP press preview for Tresor Paris' Nouvelle Collection where I was able to take a look at all the new jewellery pieces that the brand will be releasing for Winter/Spring 2014. It was an amazing evening packed with fellow bloggers, members of the press, charities and beautiful people.

Instead of doing a generic post with pictures from the event, I thought I'd take in all the shiny new pieces that I saw and create my own little wish list. Tresor Paris is evidently one of my favourite jewellery brands, so it comes as no surprise that there are heaps of things that I want...but just so this post isn't a million miles long, I forced myself to pick my ultimate favourites. 

rive multicolore bracelet / rive vert bracelet / spectrum bracelet / intime bleu bracelet / tendance violet bracelet / eclat rose ring / eclat argent ring / orbite violet earrings / bande rose bracelet

There are so many new colours and new variations of the classic style bracelets, and so many others to choose from, so be sure to check out the Tresor Paris website to see the full collection.

And just in case you did want to see pictures from the event, view them here on the TP Blog.
