Many of my lovely readers and supporters live in London and the surrounding areas. I also know that a lot of you head off down to the big smoke to frequent the West End for a trip to the theatre, for a family day out or to see a gig. If you’ve followed my blogging journey this year you’ll know that I’m delighted to be collaborating with the wonderful Bobbi Brown UK and that my friends and I were treated to a magnificent make-over before we headed to the National Television Awards at London’s O2 in January.
How would you like to experience the Bobbi Brown magic for yourselves?
The good news is that for three days only you can drop in to the Bobbi Brown pop up cafe in Soho, where they are offering a complimentary shade-match and 7 day sample to help find your new skin-true shade, as well as a free coffee for all attendees. All the details are below so why not take a trip to see the Bobbi Brown team and treat yourself!

It’s no secret that I attended the National Television Awards at The O2, London last month. Two of my buddies and team-mates joined me for the experience and we had a fantastic girls day and night out. As luck would have it, Bobbi Brown UK had re-launched a studio in the Oxford Street John Lewis store merely months before we planned to celebrate awards season.
Thanks to their wonderful PR, the three of us were treated to a red carpet make-over so that we were awards ready and the hassle of applying our own make-up was one thing ticked off our list for the evening ahead.
We were greeted by Molly, Aaminah and Kyah who immediately made us feel at ease (none of us are regulars when it comes to putting ourselves in the hands of make-up artists!) and we were quickly seated in front of the mirrors ready to put out trust and faith in these wonderfully creative professionals.
Molly immediately started to work with the colours of my dress for the evening which I was conveniently wearing for the session. You’ll see my before and after photos below, the first being of my completely make-up free face and the second being the after result.
