I was lucky enough to be invited along to St David’s Ladies’ Night as a blogger yesterday. I didn’t really know what to expect but I knew it involved bubbly, Pizza Express, discounts and fellow bloggers – I was sold!
I travelled to Cardiff with Joanna, we managed to get the earlier train so arrived quite early. We wandered around a few of the shops but resisted making any purchases, except for one small purchase in Bank which I blame entirely on Jo! It was a bargain though!
I’m not usually a fan of Paul’s Boutique to be honest but I couldn’t resist this lovely coin purse. Jo picked it up at first and I had to copy her! With the Ladies’ Night discount it only cost £8, I couldn’t leave it there!
Urban Decay had a stand set up in the centre of St David’s where they were giving make-overs. Jo and myself both opted for a smoky eye using the original Naked palette.
After a little wander around we went over to Pizza Express where the upstairs was designated to us bloggers. It was lovely to meet Megan and Mikhaela, the ladies behind the event.
We were also greeted by plenty of wine, the most amazing Elderflower water and a cute guy 😉
After a little mingle we were able to help ourselves to a pretty good Pizza Express buffet. I was quite restrained, I wanted it all!
We were given very generous goodie bags, we couldn’t quite believe our eyes when we realised that we each had a £25 St David’s voucher! We also received a Cath Kidston tote bag, a lovely pair of knickers from Boux Avenue and lots of samples to try.
After our food and drinks it was time to get down to business and shop! As part of Ladies’ Night the shops are open until 10pm and most offer good discounts. It would be rude not to take advantage, especially with our gift cards! Our first stop was Boux Avenue. We all signed up for loyalty cards which meant that we got another goodie bag!
We then headed over to John Lewis, which is where we ending up spending pretty much the entire evening. A group of bloggers can have a whole lot of fun in John Lewis! We received jam packed goodie bags in there too.
Jo popped her NARS cherry which got us all quite excited! She decided not to go for Orgasm, which I felt would have been quite apt for the occasion! (lame but I couldn’t resist)
I bought a Chanel lipstick…
I had such a lovely day, massive thanks to Megan for inviting me to this event, I cannot wait for the next one!
My outfit – Primark blazer, sheer blouse & sunglasses, New Look jeans, Peacocks sandals.
