Last week, I had the privilege of getting a sneak peek into the latest lines from various online boutiques...
I received an email from the lovely ladies at Branded Lab PR for a Spring/Summer Showcase of the latest products from their clients, and made my way over to Rosylee Tea Rooms in the Northern Quarter for some browsing and mingling with other bloggers!
I arrived alone, and was immediately ushered over to the bar, where they had beautifully crafted cocktails (and non-alcoholic alternatives) for us to sip. There was also a pretty little cart courtesy of one of the Branded Lab girls with a pick n mix. To further whet our appetite, servers roved around with wooden trays laden with other desserts courtesy of the Rosylee kitchens. But before I set about being greedy, I took a little peek around the racks, as you can see below!
There were loads of different styles on these racks and tables - my favourite brand of the night had to be South Avenue, set up by the wonderful Natasha a couple of months ago. There were picture-perfect pastels, co-ords, and a to-die-for camel sleeveless jacket (one key piece this season)! I was exclaiming so loudly that I'd buy the whole rack that I caught her attention, oopsies.
Other brands I loved included NaaNaa Clothing and KoKo Couture, with their sleek, minimalist clothing (and some pops of colour and prints for the fun in all of us). You can take a look at their samples in the photos above, but if you want to know what I loved, it had to be this cowl back jumpsuit and the white metal plate clutch pictured above.
Amongst all the eating, drinking and browsing, I managed to meet some of my favourite bloggers face to face, including Hayley, Ellie and Stephanie. I also met old friends Gail, Holly, Emma, Melissa and Lauren!
There was also a style challenge which I sadly didn't win, but was loads of fun nonetheless. At the end of the night, I was even lucky enough to snag an extra goodie bag for myself - and you can win it in a ***giveaway*** over on my Instagram!
As you can see, there are loads of goodies in the bag. Some of my faves include Anatomicals' Puffy the Eye Bag Slayer, the So...? Fragrance pack, and exclusive discount codes to all of the brands at the showcase.
All you have to do is regram the corresponding image on my Instagram with the hashtag #FESgiveaway, and also be following me, and I'll pick a winner on 11th March at 23:59! Please note that the giveaway is limited to UK only, however.
