Allertons Salon Leeds- 1st Birthday Event

See Guys, I told you there was more to come!! I love when I have a few days off and plenty to write!

Anyway on Weds 27th May I was invited to Join the lovely people at Allertons to Celebrate their First Birthday in their gorgeous Salon in the light, Leeds.




The evening promised to be full of fun and fizz (down to be bubbly as we walked in) and boasted a whole host of fabulous things like free makeovers and discounts galore so of course I was there will bells on.

I brought two of my friends; Gina and Verity, and we made it into a little birthday celebration for me as well as just a little girlie jaunt out.
The two Divas I was with haha.

When we arrived in the light just before 6pm (event ran 6pm-9pm) the place was already bustling.
Outside, there was a hair station and nail station and of course on arrival we were greeted with cake and Bubbly. I opted for the bubbly.

Inside there were 3 makeup artists offering mini makeovers. We had Jo who is the Makeup Artist from Paul and Jo and Anna Sui Makeup and she is fab and 2 of Allertons own makeup masters. Of course the lovely Kellie from Big Fashionista and my friend Verity Made a dash to get their faces on first.


There were various reps from Caudalie, Living Proof, Neom Candles etc (all stocked by allertons)  and Nick, the owner, was on top form chatting us through the various GHDs and things on offer, Verity nearly bought herself some but she resisted.
Allertons were also launching their own Makeup and Brush line which is exciting.

Of course one of my fave things about these things is seeing some of the lovely bloggers I chat to on twitter and have met/or not met before. Like I said Kellie from Big Fashionista and Lucy from Lucy Loves

There was a raffle which you could enter when you bought things and there was a special presentation for a lovely lady nominated by her friend Fellow blogger Lorna Dee Evans for being fab and contributing good things to the world.
I have to admit I missed all this because it all got a bit much for me being in such a small space with lots and lots of people so I thought rather than have a panic attack I'd just go to the pub. but not before we made a cheeky little purchase or two.


Gina and I both got a little Caudalie beauty Elixir which came with a free Grape Water spray (which Gina let me keep- thanks!) and Verity Got a gorgeous Anna Sui lippy and a Paul and Joe Eyeliner (which she says I have to apply for her...) which came with a gorgeous wee makeup bag (you can see them on my blog below) 

All in all it was a fab evening, it looked to have been a success. A big Cheers and Happy Birthday to Allertons and here's to many many more!! You should all definitely check them out as they are fab.
