On Thursday 30th April, I was lucky enough to attend my first ever blogger event for the lovely Crabtree & Evelyn’s Garden Celebration event in York showcasing their new Garden inspired collection. Many a time do I walk past the shop in York and want to buy everything I see, wishing that I would achieve my life goal of winning the lottery in order to do so! (Aim High right?) I had already spoken to a few of the other lovely bloggers on twitter beforehand including Rhian, Laura and Becky so I didn’t feel too nervous walking into the shop on the evening.
I was greeted by a lovely girl who worked for Crabtree in London and had come up to York to help host the event. My apologies to her because I cannot for the life of me, remember her name but she was from the USA and was so friendly and made everyone feel really welcome. We were offered some of their speciality tea, a glass of prosecco or some gorgeous fruity sparkling juice, all of which were amazing. I then got the opportunity to browse round and test some of the gorgeous products and take lots of photos.
We were all treated to a 60 minute hand therapy treatment which included exfoliating the hands and then moisturising them with some of their luxurious hand creams. I don’t use hand cream much (I know, scold me) and I know I should because I do notice them looking dry but this treatment certainly gave me a new outlook on hand creams. My hands never felt so smooth! After this we were asked to put some tips on the tree either about afternoon tea or gardening and then our entries were put in a bowl to win 2 afternoon tea hampers. I didn’t win but Becky and Laura won 1 each so they were over the moon and I was so happy for them. After lots of networking and chatting we were given goody bags to take away which had lots of gorgeous treats in them that I am enjoying using.
I loved my first event and the staff in the shop were all incredibly lovely and chatty throughout the 2 hours we were there. A huge thank you to Crabtree & Evelyn for putting on such a fun event and to the York shop for hosting us. Another big thank you to my fellow bloggers for making the evening fun and hopefully we will meet again soon.
I would recommend any of the products in the garden collection as they were all beautiful and smelt divine and would definitely recommend going to a blog event if you haven’t already for meeting your fellow bloggers and giving yourself a confidence boost.
