Hope you’ve had a good weekend. Mine was good but crazy busy. It was so horrible to hear about all that was going on in the world on Friday and our thoughts are with everyone involved as well as Frances Cassandras family. The blogging world has lost two great ladies far to soon.
Today’s post is about an event we were invited to on Thursday evening at the beautiful St David’s hotel. I’d never been before so was excited to see it. It’s such a talked about hotel and I’ve only heard good things so couldn’t wait to see it from the inside.
The event was held in one of the rooms which had a lounge area, bedroom and bathroom as well as a balcony with these amazing views. How lush to wake up and enjoy a morning cuppa over looking the bay. We were treated to some very tasty canapes (I’m a huge fan of mini yorkshire puddings and even got to try quail eggs!)
Onto the event. All around were products we could look at and play with. How gorgeous are the Rose gold straightner set. We got to see these in action and they worked amazing. We were both totally in love the Paul Mitchell Nude wands. They seemed a great size for creating loose waves.
New CiD is a brand of make up I’ve tried before. My mum has one of the baked blushes and it’s the prettiest colour ever. I always borrow it when I’m home. Above is one of the bronzers. Whilst we were there we were taught make up and hair tips and interestingly the bronzers and blushes are made me swirling pigment onto a terracotta stone and then they are baked for 24 hours. I love random facts like that. I’d love to see a make up factory from the inside. The eyebrow pencil made it into my everyday favourites back in 2012 (post here) and I’ve since repurchased and still love it.
Here are some of the gorgeous hair styles created. How amazing is the plait. L has amazing long hair and is always looking for ways to get the effort loose waves shown above so was pleased to learn some trick. Basically tight ribbon curls (so the hair is flat against the wand, in about one inch sections) are done all over the head and then brushed out. The finish is amazing.
Another product we got to see was the new Ultimate Colour set. Which uses Quinoa to lock in colour and help keep hair in great condition. As someone always dying their hair and can’t wait to try this set out.
We were also lucky enough to leave with a goodie bag, We’ll be sharing our reviews on these products once we’ve got to test them out.
Have you got any Paul Mitchell or New CiD product favourites?
Thanks for having us at the event!
Love L and M
