I can’t believe reading week is over. It’s gone so fast and it’s that time again when I need to knuckle down until the Christmas holidays. Anyway, last week I was lucky enough to attend the Paul Mitchell’s Gift of Style event at the
Gary Hedley Salon in Newcastle. As well as being able to catch up with Beca from
Those Moments of Serendipity and
Alice, I also got to meet the lovely
Kloe from Skulls & Kisses
and Amy form Cocktails in Teacups
so all in all, it was a lovely get together.
As we entered the salon, we got greeted with drinks and they offered to take our coats and bags. The stylists were doing peoples hair while we chatted away and looked at the products and Christmas gifts which they are selling this year. There was a topless butler coming round the salon with nibbles for us to try, however I couldn’t see any vegan options for me. The gift sets were beautifully illustrated and designed by Australian fashion illustrator, Sarah Hankinson who has previously worked with Vogue, Harrods and Harper’s Bazaar.
At the end of the event we got given a lovely goodie bag with four full-sized products in as well as a lovely CID lipgloss which has a light and a mirror on the packaging (more about that at a later date). I was lucky enough to recieve the Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner which smell divine and I can’t wait to try them out, an Extra Body Daily Boost and the Super Skinny Serum (perfect for sorting my frizzy, untameable hair out then!).
