PRESSDAYS: New Look, Crabtree & Evelyn, Next, F&F, Chalk PR, VERY & Motel
So Ive been to a few press days recently and as usual I like to keep you guys in the loop!
I started my day at 8am on Oxford street for the launch day of the new New Look store! They had invited a few people to shop the store before it opened with 50% off of everything and a free breakfast from the Starbucks which is on the second floor of the store! Great for a coffee break from shopping since the shop is now so big! I picked up two sparkly tops for the Christmas season (You might recognise them I've been wearing both loads) and a huge pair of chunky black boots which I had to lug around with my for the rest of the day! But it was worth it, I love them plus I got the whole lot from £80 down to £40!
CRABTREE & EVELYN
After that, I walked just a little bit down the road to the Crabtree and Evelyn store on Regents street for their Christmas launch. They had a giant Christmas cracker which was pulled outside the store, then they went around and gave everyone a little Christmas cracker and a scratchcard which picked us a gift each! It was all very festive and got my so excited for Christmas - They will be giving these kinds of scratchcards away in stores so keep an eye out! They are such an amazing place to get Christmas gifts - all beautifully sold in decorational, musical tins or pretty boxes. I will be including some in my gift guides to come to keep an eye out.
Afterwards, we were off to Next to have a look at their SS15 collection, lots of lovely colours! My fave pieces were the green knitted jumper and the pastel purple leather jacket! We had a look around and then a break for breakfast, they were serving mini toasties and bowls of porridge as well and milkshakes in little milk bottles which were yummy! The girls then went off to get there nails and hair done while I sat on the sofa charging my phone!
Next one I want to chat about was F&F! This was an amazing press day and makes me really excited for their SS15! There was a whole rail of pretty jewel tones which I fell in love with and quite a few pinks that I really loved!
So last night was Chalk PR's Christmas event - There were lots of stands all around the room doing hair, nails, skincare and all sorts! There were pretty cocktails which we all drunk out of little tea cups and lots of yummy canopés. I didn't take many photos at all but that's OK because I picked up a load of products that are going to feature though my gift guides so its all good!
I love their bold prints for summer whether they are bright colours or monochrome! My super favourite piece had to be this mermaid skirt -How amazing is it?!
Lots of amazing floral and tropical prints as usual (especially on the swimwear) and some really cool textures, we were all loving the fluffy pieces! There were bell sleeves and bell bottoms as well as a few different print dungarees and obvs lots of co-ords! It wouldn't be Motel without them! This season Motel are bringing out a range of beachwear as well which I am super excited for!
