last month, on sunday the 23rd, rachel and i went to the #OXMEET organised by the lovely adrienne from late night nonsense. we were both so excited and it was so nice to go to a bloggers event that's closer to home than london. due to transport issues we didn't arrive in time to go to the meal at wagamama's, so we met the girls at crabtree and evelyn on queen street.
crabtree and evelyn has previously been a bit of an older ladies shop, but recently they've had a revamp, they're repackaged a lot of products, brought out some new and exciting products and introduced some brand new lines. we were greeted by the lovely staff and they explained they'd be offering us hand massages and the opportunity to have our nails painted using their lovely polish range. i really love their packaging, it's so pretty and vintage looking. they also have the most delicious smelling hand sanitizer i've ever found! the staff were so welcoming and helpful and the hand cream they gave us is very luxurious and also the perfect size to have in your handbag. if you've bypassed crabtree and evelyn in the past, i highly suggest you pop into the next store you come across, because they have some really beautiful products.
after we'd finished in crabtree and evelyn we headed off to costa to fill up on coffee, have a chat and get to know each other better. lots of us swapped blog ideas and addresses, discussed our favourite blogs and talked all things beauty! it's so refreshing to talk to other people who share the same passion and enthusiasm for the things you love.
when six o'clock rolled around we headed off to lush, everyone was so excited, we couldn't wait to get there as we had the whole store to ourselves! the minute the lovely manager tilly opened the door all of us started drooling over that lush smell. the girls then told us that our evening would be rose themed, amazing! tilly had made rose lemonade, which was delicious, and there were also beautifully decorated vegan rose cupcakes, made by eleanor. they looked just like the rose bubble bar! we had skincare consultations by the lovely kim, which for a skincare junkie like me was so exciting. we were given little sample pots of the products that we were recommended. we were also introduced to the emotional brilliance make up range where we had colour readings done by kelly. now, i was a bit of a skeptic when the concept of it was first explained to me, but my results, wise, healthy and focus, were really spot on and match perfectly with whats currently happening in my life. the goodie bags we were given were fabulous too, they included the rose bubble bar, full of grace solid serum bar and a piece of the emotional brilliance make up. mine was a beautiful red lip shade called power. lush oxford hosted an amazing event for us and it was so much fun, i can't thank them enough!
of course i have to say a huge thank you to adrienne too, as without her amazing organisation and planning, none of this would have happened. she also gifted us the most generous and exciting goodie bags i've ever been given, so thank you so so so much, you did an amazing job and your the loveliest person ever! it really was the most lovely day and as i said it was so nice to be surrounded by like minded people and being able to ramble on about beauty all day. everyone was so lovely, we all got on so well and i think we'll all have to get together again!
