Whenever I go to Norwich I go to Jarrold’s to get any MAC purchases I’ve got my eye on so when I received an email from the lovely Louise to attend their vintage blogging event I was so excited. So last week I ventured off to Norwich to attend the event which was taking place in Jarrold’s new restaurant/cafe, Benjis. I arrived a little early so mooched around an empty Jarrold’s, it felt like I was in the movie The Greatest Store in the World where a family sneak inside a department store to sleep in overnight, but doing this was only a tease because it made me want to buy things when I couldn’t – oh, its a hard life. When it was time to attend the event five other bloggers and myself were greeted with champagne and delicious food on platters. After a bit of mingling, taking photos, nibbling food and sipping champagne we were invited to have a vintage makeover. Firstly, I had my hair done by Kasey from Aveda who gave me a fantastic pin up style look which even lasted the next day. I wish I had a Kasey at home to beautify my hair everyday! Next I went over to Georgia, who is the beauty manager at Jarrold’s, but because there wasn’t much time left she just did a few basic bits to my face. However, the new YSL lipstick (sorry, I’m unsure what shade it was) really pulled the look together don’t you think?! After a bit more chin wagging it was time to leave but on departure we were all given a goodie box featuring a few lovely bits from The Vintage Cosmetic Company, which is soon to be sold in Jarrolds, and fab samples from Aveda.
