November means… It’s all about Christmas!!! You won’t believe how much Christmas spirit I have each and every year – it’s probably enough to fly Santa’s sleigh alone. I just love every thing about the build up – a lot of people surprisingly don’t enjoy the build up and find it stressful. I couldn’t be more opposite than that. I love the rush, I love spending the whole day shopping and coming home with bags upon bags. You could probably imagine my happiness when I was asked to come along to The Metquarter Christmas press day event in Liverpool. The day started with champagne – and I pretty much never had an empty glass the entire time. Which was fine by me, I was a little merry to say the least. I still managed to take some pretty photos of the amazing products which the stores in the Metquarter wanted to focus on.
Before browsing around me and Rachel (My sister blogger) went straight to the gorgeous Canapés from Carluccio’s. I must admit, whenever I have food from canapés, I never know quite what I’m eating but the chicken skewers were lovely. Oh and I actually tried Macaron’s for the first EVER time. Well I loved them and now I totally understand the hype that these babies get. Not to mention how cute they are.
I actually never knew that Carluccio’s do gift boxes. I’ll have the prosecco and chocolate roses please. For Christmas, or if you’re feeling super eager my birthday at the end of November!
After a little bit of snacking and ALOT of champagne drinking, I got treated to a Mac make-up demo! I’m now dreaming about MAC hightlighter and lipsticks. Not to mention the perfect rose gold shimmer eyeshadow.
My sister also got a makeover… winged eyeliner. Her signature. She looked amazing. The MAC makeup artist at the event was so talented and lovely.
As for the brands involved….. WOW. There was plenty of “OOOOH” And “Oh my god” from me and other bloggers. I fell in love with the most perfect pair of over the knee boots from Michael Kors. If only I could afford them. Small blogger probs. 😱
The winter pieces from Kurt Geiger showcasing were just as lovely… perfect black ankle boots and the cosiest hat and scarf pair.
MAC’s Christmas collection is just too much to handle. I’m in love. The whole collection is now on my Christmas wish list. The packaging is just as dreamy as the products. I need them all. Now.
Christmas is all about statement jewellery……. check these babies out. Head down to The Metquarter and have peek at all of the beautiful Christmas gifts for yourself. Literally for yourself though – you deserve it 💁🏻💁🏻.
