Festival Place Blogging Event


Last Friday I was invited along to a blogging event with Festival Place in Basingstoke. Jessica and I drove up from Southampton to meet Tanya and Jess where we met the Festival Place team and some more bloggers in Giraffe for an evening of styling tips and learning to dress for our body shape.




We were greeted with drinks and yummy snacks while we had a quick chat with the other bloggers. Our guest speaker for the evening was Melissa Murrell, a personal stylist who runs www.stylingbymelissamurrell.co.uk who gave us all so much useful information on how we should be dressing for our shapes and where we may of been going wrong. 

It was really informative and I'm pretty sure we all came away with lots of new information and some shopping tips. After our talk with Melissa, we were able to mingle some more, get our nails done with Shear Beauty and hear some more about future events. We were each given two incredible goody bags, one from Festival Place with items from Costa Coffee, Hotel Chocolat and Lush Cosmetics and another bag from Shear Beauty which had so many amazing products inside including a hot pink travel hair dryer, Lord & Berry make up and tanning and hair products. We were all so spoilt! 

As Festival Place was open until 8pm, the four of us went shopping after the event. We went to Tiger where I finally found a milk foamer and then we found ourselves in Zara and H&M. The evening was finished off with a quick coffee in Costa before we drove back to Southampton. I had such a fun time with the girls and it was really nice to go to an event with a bit of a twist instead of just being talked into buying something. Festival Place have a food event coming up Easter weekend so I may head up with the girls for that too!

Thank you so much to Sarah and her team at Festival Place! I can't wait to see what Festival Place do in the future.
