Recently I was invited to the L’Occitane Cambridge store for a blogger’s private shopping event hosted by Olivia and Lauren. The promise of cocktails, cupcakes and fabulous jewellery was too good to resist and what with my love for the brand anyway, I practically skipped onto the train after work.
After an unfortunate incident on the journey (my contact lens broke in my eye – OMG pain!!!) I arrived at the store. It was one of those perfect chilled evenings where we chatted, got a bit pampered and tested out lots of the L’Occitane ranges.
I picked up a pampering gift set for my friend’s birthday and fell in love with this Néroli & Orchidée Candle. It was a little on the pricey side at £24 but is a nice chunky candle with 30hrs burning time so I treated myself! The aroma is so calming; it reminds me of the scents used in spa treatment rooms. I haven’t been at home much this month so I’m looking forward Sunday, when I’ll be running a hot bath, lighting my candle and having an indulgent pamper session.
Lauren was also on hand displaying the latest beautiful jewellery collections from Stella & Dot. A lot of their pieces can be worn multiple ways with extra bits that you can clip on or hook off and it’s all very versatile. I had to resist the urge to splurge as I’d already been naughty, but I’m eyeing up a couple of pieces for when I next deserve a treat!
(Namely this bag: WANT!!!)

I was crying with laughter this week after trying out a game that went viral on social media. You basically have to Google your name and the words “Glamour Shots” and are supposed to change your profile picture to the first image that comes up.
A couple of months ago Hayley of London Beauty Queen launched the 30 Plus Blog Collective and recently I attended her ‘meet and eat’ celebration dinner at Pescatori Italian & Seafood Restaurant, Fitzrovia.
