I promise that this is the final Blogger Event post for this month, it’s been so much fun but really hectic – I could totally get used to the lifestyle though! This time I was invited to the Beauty Temple in Nottingham to have a sneak preview of some of the fashion trends that are going to be gracing the catwalks for Nottingham Fashion week! I know, I know, it’s not quite LFW or NYFW but beggars can’t be choosers!
The Beauty Temple is located just off the market square and is a luxury spa that has the most gorgeous interior design that I’ve seen in a spa! Think huge high back velvet sofas with big ornate sinks at the base for you to enjoy a sneaky pedicure or two! They offer gel manicures and they even have a makeup room where they use Delilah makeup, in fact they are the only stockist of Delilah in Nottingham! The products were gorgeous and definitely a luxury treat i’d like to try in the future!
On entry we were greeted with the most amazing cocktail I have ever seen in my life! It was called the Glitter Bomb and included Chambord, prosecco, Absolut Raspberry and edible glitter amongst the delicious ingredients. The edible glitter made the cocktail look simply incredible and they tasted divine – definitely something I’m going to try and recreate myself! There was even a DJ there (which is apparently a regular thing) who played so much dance music that Lora and I actually felt like heading out for a night on the town! There was also an array of different pizzas from Mod pizza which were so yummy! I’ve never been there before but we were given a voucher for a free pizza each so I will definitely be using that soon! Whilst we were all mingling and eating, the models were getting their glad rags on in time for a mini fashion show for us all!
We were all told a bit more about the upcoming Nottingham Fashion week and to my delight we were given front row tickets for one of the shows in March – something I’m incredibly excited about! This time it’s Nottingham but who knows, one day it could be London, Paris or even New York. A girl can dream right?! The shows are split into different genres depending on their targeted audience and I’m so glad that I got the one aimed at students called Club to Campus! I’ll be sure to write a post about it alongside the other exciting things I have lined up for March!
After the introduction the mini show began and we got a little glimpse at some of the trends. They included sports luxe, ruffles and even crop tops for men which is something I simply cannot get my head around! The outfits were gorgeous and a lot of them were definitely things I would wear myself.
I often find I go into a shop a by individual items rather than outfits so it was really nice to see full looks paired together to give you an idea of what you could put with things you had at home! I particularly liked a gorgeous orange jumpsuit paired over a simple white t-shirt which was part of the sports luxe trend. It looked lovely on the model however she was a leggy 5 foot 10 at least so I doubt there was anything that wouldn’t look good on her!
As the evening wound to a close I got a chance to catch up with some of my favourite local bloggers and have a good old chat. We seem to have seen a lot of each other this month but that’s not a problem for me as they are all so lovely! I’ve got a couple of things lined up for next month that I can’t wait to share with you all but in the mean time, I really hope you’ve enjoyed seeing what I’ve been up to this month! Have there been any good blogging events where you are?
