Cdfblogs Christmas Social & Crabtree and Evelyn Event

By Gem - 20:27:00

I had a very busy night on Tuesday with two events to attend. I had a bit of a mission to get there as there were forty five cows on the train lines outside Newport and I was stuck on the train to Cardiff for an hour. Madness!!!

Firstly, I went to a lovely Crabtree & Evelyn event. (When I finally got there) There were hand massages, bubbly, nibbles(the most amazing cheese and chutney) and a raffle where I won two bottle of fizz!

Nathan Wyburn from Britain's Got Talent was there to create a portrait of the Save the Children patron Natasha Kaplinsky. There was 30% off a lot of Christmas items and an extra 15% off on the evening so I got some tubes of hand therapy for my mam for Christmas and some cherry jam and pomegranate hand lotion for myself. I LOVE jam, I eat crumpets most days so I can't wait to get stuck in to this one.

I was given a sample of the pomegranate hand therapy before and I adored it, it is so light and not oily at all. I might ask for a little pot so I can take some in my bag with me and keep the big bottle in the house.

After the Crabtree & Evelyn event I headed over to Peppermint on Mill Lane for the Cardiff Blogs Christmas Social. I drank loads of lovely mojito's with Sarah, Liz, Louise, Emma and Chantele. There were lots of mince pies and a rubbish raffle where you could win exciting gifts like a photo box and a quiz book (which is what I won) great fun!
If you blog (or are interested in social media) and live in South Wales I highly recommend that you come along to one of these meet ups. I've met some amazing people there and I always enjoy the themed talks at the beginning. There is usually a free drink too ;) 

If you want to find out more or follow what we get up to at these events then you should follow @cdfblogs on twitter.

What have you been up to this week? I want to hear about all of your Christmas parties!

  1. Sounds like a lovely, eventful week! Sadly mine has been a lot duller...although I do have my works christmas meal to look forward to next week :)


  2. This sounds like a lot of fun. You know, I'm quite ashamed and baffled to admit it (I didn't really realize it) but I have only been into a Crabtree and Evelyn, maybe once or twice. I've always heard brilliant things about them but never actually go inside. I love jam as well and would definitely be interested to smell all of these. Yay for winning things, that is always super! And um, do I spot a mojito?! Yum! I love mojitos.


  3. looks awesome!
    wish i could have come :)
    ahhh mojitos <3

  4. 45 cows on the line?! That's madness! The Crabtree and Evelyn event sounds fun, the pomegranate hand therapy sounds lovely!x

  5. Sounds like you've been having fun missy :)

    The cows on the train line did make me giggle, just relieved that it wasn't sheep as that would have been so stereotypical! x

  6. Oh that does look like a fun evening! The Puppini Sisters were indeed at the Glee Club in Cardiff Bay, would really recommend seeing them live, brilliant!

    Have a good Christmas!

  7. Sounds like such a fab evening, wish they had something like Cdf Blogs near me too! xxx

  8. Sounds like an eventfull week (pun not intended). And those free drinks look rather lush.
    I hate wandering cows, I used to live in a country village and they'd always be holding up traffic. That and people herding sheep.


  9. This looks fab, I could do with some of the pomegranate hand butter right now!
