My Pout Picks!

Monday, 30 September 2013

Last weekend I headed into Edinburgh once again for a lovely afternoon with two of my best blogging friends Laura and Jade. We went along to the Pout event at the Corn Exchange, which I mentioned in one of my previous posts. The wesbite describes Pout as ''A ladies lifestyle show featuring, fashion, beauty and leisure time for aspirational women from Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.'' We were greeted with a goodie bag and a snazzy cocktail, and then we headed off to explore! So I thought I'd just do a wee recap of some of my favourite exhibitors from this year! In no particular order, I really enjoyed...


I've written about Appointedd before here, and I really enjoyed chatting to the lovely Leah Hutcheon (founder of the company) again at Pout. Appointedd is an online salon booking portal, with lots of salons to choose from in the Glasgow and Aberdeen area. Leah also gave a great talk on using websites and apps to better organise your time, which she gave alongside Cally from...


If you enjoy a bit of online shopping and haven't heard of Malzee yet, get over to the website now and check it out! Mallzee is essentially an online shopping social network with a huge number of amazing stores including French Connection, Urban Outfitters and House of Fraser to choose from. More on this coming in a post soon as I was lucky enough to go along to their launch party on Tuesday night!


I absolutely loved seeing Joanne McGillvray's beautiful collection in the flesh, having seen so much about this up and coming Scottish designer online recently. Her clothes are stunning - there were a pair of printed trousers which the lovely Joanne herself was actually wearing that I almost had to be dragged away from. Lucky I had a sneaky purchase from the following company to ease the pain ;)


I couldn't resist buying one of the adorable cake pops from Cake Cetera! Well, who could? It's a cross between a cupcake and a lollipop for crying out loud, this is something we all ought to try once in our lives! The whole range of products, including their gorgeous cupcake bouquets were lovely and an inventive twist on the now ubiquitous cupcake!


If you missed it, I did a whole post on some of the lovely Granny Sally's products that I was lucky enough to test out recently, so go and check that out here! I love these natural products, and such cute packaging is always a bonus!

These were just a few of my favourites! Others included Odyssey Boutique (a lingerie and swimwear boutique which also offers a range of specialist beauty treatments including waxing and nails), the Scottish Wildlife Trust (got to be kind to our furry and feathered friends) and obviously the i-On and Snapshot photobooths... neither of which we managed to resist!


Thanks so much to Pout for inviting us along! We had a lovely afternoon :)


*Disclaimer: We were invited along to the event in a blogging capacity which was really lovely of the Pout team, but the opinions in this post are all very much my own :)
