Yesterday I attended the fantastic NYR bloggers event in Manchester, it was the first blogging event the company had held up North. It was a really good turn out and the atmosphere was really friendly and relaxed. There was always a member of NYR if you had any questions or another glass of bubbly.
Jane telling the story of how NYR started 30 years ago in a forgotten corner of London and how it has become the popular multi-facetted brand it is today.
Stella doing my make-up and teaching me how to make my eyes look bigger using only eyeshadow. She also chose the exact shade of lip colour I would have picked for myself!
I was so please with the end result!
The awesome goodie bag containing:
Wild Rose Beauty Balm 50g
(This comes with a cloth so it can be used as a gentle scrub, face mask or soothing balm)
White Tea Facial Mist 45ml
Organic Facial Wipes
(I used these to remove my makeup that evening and they did a fantastic job)
Lip Gloss in Damask Rose
Eyeshadow in Hibiscus
The eyeshadow (on the left) is a lovely rose gold colour and has a really nice gentle shimmer to it which I will use as my base shadow and highlighter. The lip gloss is wonderfully non sticky but has great staying power and tastes like a desert!
I bought some vegan probiotics to help my body deal with my food intolerance’s. I bought the lipgloss used in my make-over and got a sample of Beauty Sleep Concentrate.
I will be sampling the other products over the coming weeks.
I was so pleased that I attended this event for several reasons: Even though I’ve come into the shop a few times I didn’t realise how many treatments and therapy rooms they had. I can’t wait to book in for an Indian Head Massage after one of the other bloggers raved about it – in a totally blissed out way of course. Neal’s Yard Remedies also offer a massive range of tinctures for all sorts of ailments and vegan supplements. It was a great chance to meet other Northern Bloggers with similar attitudes to mine, who were so friendly. We swapped Twitter handles and blog names and they told me about the North West Bloggers page on Facebook.
