AD-New Look Bon Accord Reopening Event

AD/PR EVENT-As always, all views and opinions are my own.

⁣⁣⁣This morning New Look Bon Accord kindly invited me to open the doors of my favourite fashion store. I’m so excited to welcome them back! 

⁣Non essential shops in Scotland have been closed due to COVID since last December and today they have reopened along with gyms, pools, pubs and restaurants. It felt so wonderful to spend the morning browsing new collections and just feeling that bit normal again!

⁣⁣⁣To welcome everyone back, New Look is currently offering 25% off throughout the store until Wednesday 28th April. This applies to all products, including sales items, but excludes third party brands.

The store is looking fabulous, with so many exciting new products from dresses and tops, to the most impressive denim collection! What I love most about the Bon Accord store is it’s diversity. From petite, to maternity and from curves to 915, there really is something for everyone! 

I couldn’t wait to do some shopping and picked up this beautiful Ditsy Floral Frill Smock Dress for only £10.

These beautiful Ruffle and Collar Tees were £6 and £5 and all with a further 25% off! 

I also chose the Blue Denim Smock Dress and Gold Heart and Silver Star Necklaces, which I’m wearing. These were PR products.

I really enjoyed my experience at New Look Bon Accord today! I truly felt safe and very welcomed by the lovely team who followed and encouraged the current government guidelines.

Have you been shopping since the stores reopened in the UK? Stay safe friends!⁣⁣⁣

Magical Ears For Our Upcoming Walt Disney World Adventure

Yesterday My Little Peter Pan and I were lucky enough to receive some magic mail from the lovely Jessica over at Enchanting Ears. Enchanting Ears by Jess is a small Etsy store that offers a wide variety of Bespoke ears, bows and scrunchies. Jessica kindly sent me some of her wonderful products for our upcoming Walt Disney Word trip and so not to be left out, Quinn also received a very special pair of ears! Today I am going to detail what came in our package and where you can go to get your hands on them too.

First up probably the most adorable ears I have ever seen, I mean look at these Dumbo inspired ears! They are unbelievably soft and cute and I can’t wait to pair them with an outfit for our trip.

I am so very excited to wear these Tinker Bell inspired ears, because as you may have guessed she is my favourite Disney character! I am in love with everything millennial pink so these ears definitely fit into my wardrobe well.

Quinn received these gorgeous Peter Pan inspired ears which of course suit his personality to a tee. The fabric is just beautiful and he is very much looking forward to wearing them on our trip.

My favourite pair of ears I have at the moment are a Spaceship Earth inspired pair from Enchanting Ears, so I was delighted to receive this scrunchie to match along. They receive so many compliments when I wear them in the parks and I’m sure the scrunchie won’t be any different!

Last but certainly not least I received this beautiful hair bow, again made with the prettiest park inspired fabric. As you may know I adore hair bows and wear one each and every day, so this bow will be very loved.

I am very excited to start planning my outfits now that our countdown to Walt Disney World is so close! You can check out some more magical Enchanting Ears by Jess designs here on Etsy. Which pair of ears were your favourite?

The items in this post are gifted. As always all views and opinions are my own.

Body Shop Enchanted Forest Blogger Christmas Event

On Tuesday I spent the evening at The Body Shop at their latest Blogger event. You may remember my post from the last Body Shop Event back in September. I was very excited in the lead up to the after hours Enchanted Forest event, as I adore Christmas and couldn’t wait to sample the new festive range.

Upon arrival I was greeted with a glass of Bucks Fizz and a goody bag containing samples of The Body Shops best selling products which included, Mango Body Yoghurt, Peppermint Intensive Cooling Foot Rescue and their Tea Tree 3 in 1 Wash Scrub Mask. The lovely staff members introduced themselves and gave us a run down of the event, which included hand massages and skincare and make up consultations. The store was filled with festive gift sets and set to the theme of Re-Wild the World , which is their current campaign. The Body Shop will help to protect and re-wild over ten million square metres of forest England and Armenia, as part of the World Bio Bridges Mission. A contribution from very purchase made during November and December will be donated to their partners, Woodland Trust and World Land Trust. So far The Body Shop customers have helped re-wild 714,371 square metres of forest so far this Christmas.

I headed straight to the skincare section and picked myself up some Vanilla Marshmallow, Peppermint Candy Cane and Berry Bon Bon Hand Creams. I live for the Body Shops hand creams and each scent is wonderful and so festive. I chose out a Strawberry Delights Bag that included a bath gel, body butter and hand cream as the scent is just marvelous! I chose out a Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel and Reindeer Bath Bomb for Quinn as its his favourite scent. I also picked up a Tea Tree 3 in 1 Wash Scrub Mask which he loves.

The Personalised Body Butters are back and at the end of the evening we each received one of our choice. I chose the Vanilla Marshmallow as it was so sweet and my favourite scent by far.

An Evening At The Body Shop – Aberdeen Blogger Event

Last Friday I was invited along to The Body Shop, for an evening of pampering, shopping and to try out some new products with some fellow Bloggers. The Aberdeen branch hosted the after hours event, and gave us skin care and make-up consultations tailored to our needs and skin types. Fantastic hand massages were also on offer on the evening. This was the first local event I had attended as a new Blogger, and as I was quite nervous, I took my Mother in Law along for some much needed support. As it turns out, we had a wonderful night and everyone involved in bringing it together were just lovely! Today I’m going to write about our night, and what new skincare products I took home with me.

On arrival we were greeted with a goody bag (yay!), containing some lovely new products and samples. As soon as I saw the Fall for Pumpkin body butter I squealed with delight! I love everything pumpkin and as I imagined, this body butter is absolutely amazing! It smells like a dream and leaves your skin feeling really soft and nourished.

After we were offered some drinks (a Starbucks Teavana Green Tea for me!), we were given an introduction to the Body Shop by the lovely staff members, as well as a run down on some of the evenings products and pampering available to us. The Body Shop is forever against animal testing and have helped ban animal testing in the UK. The company held a petition, which on the day had reached 8 million signatures! The Body Shop are now heading towards the United Nations, where they are aiming toward ending animal testing for good. How amazing is that!

After a browse of the store and picking up all the things for our baskets, both my Mother in Law and I had our own make-up consultation with the lovely Megan. She spent quite some time finding the right shade, and showing us how to perfectly apply our foundation.

Last but certainly not least, we tried the new 100% Vegan body yoghurts. They come in a variety of scents, from banana to Mango, each one smelling devine! We then headed home with our new products and a cute little Moringa body gift set free with our purchases. Thanks for a great night Body Shop, I already can’t wait for the next event which will be focused on Christmas, yay!
