Ladies Night

On Thursday night I attended the fabulous Ladies Night at St David's 2 where lots of lovely bloggers were invited to meet in Pizza Express before the event started. It was lovely to catch up with some familiar faces who I had met at the South Wales Blogger Meet Up. Megan and the Grayling PR team really looked after us and we tucked in to some pizza and wine. I had come straight from work so it was the perfect way to relax and prepare for the busy night of shopping ahead.

The idea of Ladies Night was to have makeovers, pampering and discounts with a  great atmosphere. It was a but like the Student lock in but less manic and open to all ladies. I hope Ladies Night is turned into an annual event because who doesn't love a bit of bubbly while you shop and a party atmosphere?

We all popped into Boux Avenue which is my favourite store in Cardiff, always get lovely service there. I splashed out on some new sets of underwear using my St David's voucher.The last photo is of Charli doing her model walk behind the line of models walking around St David's ha!

I love the changing rooms in Boux Avenue, plenty of room and fun lights to play around with. It was Boux Avenues first birthday so there were lots of treats in store.

John Lewis also had lots going on in store and Charli got her make up done at Bobbi Brown and Joanne and Leanne splashed out at Nars and Chanel.

Just want to say a big thank you to Grayling and St David's and to Leanne, Charli, Joanna, Lowri and
Leanne Marie for a wondeful night!

  8. Oh you're making me miss Cardiff so much! The last time I popped back in January I could have cried I miss it so much! Really want to try Boux Avenue's stuff but I don't live near a store to try on unfortunately. And that lace dress is SO NICE - can't believe it's from Primark!

  9. I wish I had more girls days like this, this sounds like so much fun! Pizza, wine, and shopping? Perfection. I love your purple lace dress, you look so pretty. Looks like you got some really cute stuff. I've always wanted to sit and have my makeup done in one of the makeup stores but I always get really, really shy about it.

      Don't be shy! I love asking about products, must be boring to work on the counter all day they must like chatting to people and trying things out on people x
