L'Occitane Meet Up with Lily and Anna

On the snowiest day of the year, so far, French skincare favourite L'Occitane teamed up with the unstoppable Lily and Anna to showcase products from the brand at the new Regent Street Flagship store. 

Upon arrival we were handed flutes of champagne and the most divine macarons (there's a difference between macarons and macaroons, a fun fact I learnt at the event) before finding our seats. The lovely Tara accompanied me to this special evening and we had the best time, especially when we found the photo booth with a giant macaron prop!

Lily and Anna hosted a Q&A session and answered questions about fashion, friendship, the future of blogging and more. Following that we were all given the chance to meet them and have our photo taken together. 

All worries aside about not knowing what to say to two of the coolest bloggers around, the conversation flowed (as did the champagne) and we discussed our mutual love of Redroaster, Caroline Hirons and Buddies. For those of you who don't know, Buddies is a 24-hour restaurant on Brighton seafront that all who visit or live in Brighton will experience at some point in time; it's inevitable. 

I've been a bit hesitant about trying Glossier's new product, Solution, so who better to ask for advice then the two people who got me into the brand originally? Lily advised that it's best just to try the new product out and see if it agrees with my skin, whilst Anna admitted she is yet to try Solution too, so it's comforting to know I'm not alone when it comes to skincare concerns. Side note if you're interested in Glossier, I'll be posting a recommendation of my favourite products from the brand soon.

Bloggers teaming up with brands to host events isn't a new concept but the question in 2018 is how to best to make events like this one relevant. Lily and Anna are the perfect pair to promote the L'Occitane name and they gave the event their own unique twist, whilst tackling modern day issues such as female friendship, career success and even how to find the perfect Mother's Day gift. 

A big thank you to Lily, Anna and L'Occitane for a wonderful evening. I'm already loving the Grapefruit Rhubarb Hand Cream and Aromachologie Relaxing Pillow Mist. The girls also picked a few of their top products from the brand and condensed it into their own beauty bag. It makes the perfect gift, so be sure to pick one up for yourself or someone special.
