Event: Boots, Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh

Sunday, 18 May 2014


This week Kirsty, Jade and I popped along to an event at the Boots store at Fort Kinnaird in Edinburgh. As a Glasgow gal this was a store I had never visited before, and I was excited to finally be heading along to a blogging event after two months of having to say no to the odd invite that came my way! It was smashing to catch up with the girls, who I hadn't seen in weeks, and who doesn't love a wee evening of beauty-centric chat?!

We were greeted at the door by the lovely Carolyn, who introduced us to some of the staff from their wide range of beauty counters. With everything from Ojon and Bumble and Bumble hair care (who treated us to an amazing head massage courtesy of Sarah!) to Bare Minerals and everything in between, we spent a really nice couple of hours perusing the counters and chatting with the friendly staff. Kirsty even had her makeup done at the Bare Minerals counter, and we talked new product launches and must have makeup items at Benefit.

All in all it was a really lovely evening, and if you live in the Edinburgh area and are looking to pick up some new makeup I would definitely recommend popping in to this branch of Boots - it's a lovely, spacious store with a wide range of high end counters, in addition to all of the usual brands Boots carries (Revlon, 17, Bourjois etc). The staff aim to cater their service to each individual customer's needs, whether you're in a mad rush to grab something and go, or if you've got some time to spare and fancy a chat.

I took lots of photos on the night and they're all so colourful I decided to include most of them. At the bottom, however, is a sneak peek in the AMAZING goodie bag we left with that night. The girls and I felt so spoilt, so thank you so much to everyone at Boots for that!

    1. Same, it's so pretty, even if I don't buy anything (which is 99% of the time) I always stop at Benefit to look at the packaging! xx
