Last Thursday I hotfooted it down to my local Body Shop after work for a Christmassy blogger event full of fun and festivities! I'd been to an event here back in the Summer and had lots of fun, so when I was invited to the Christmas bonanza I was pretty darn excited for another instalment of Body Shop goodness. It was organised by the lovely Rachelle, who did an amazing job of keeping us bloggers entertained, fed and watered with oodles of Christmas drinks and snacks. To kick the evening off I was treated to a gorgeous hand massage with the limited edition Ginger Sparkle hand wash and lotion, then I spent a good hour filling up my basket after vowing I wouldn't, and having a good catch up with some fellow blogger friends.
I love the whole Christmas collection that The Body Shop do, and this year is no exception. The special scents this year are Cranberry Joy, Vanilla Bliss and of course, Ginger Sparkle, my new favourite. All of your favourite Body Shop staples are available in these yummy, festive fragrances, from shower gels to hand creams, scented oils to the iconic body butters (which may have come home with me...) and they make the perfect gifts. Plus I love, love, love the gorgeous seasonal packaging. Christmas cracker anyone?
I'll hopefully be reviewing a couple of the things I picked up that have become firm favourites of mine very soon (Banana Shampoo and Conditioner cough cough) so keep your eyes out for those in the next week or so.
Thanks so much to Rachelle and the lovely ladies at The Body Shop in Preston for putting on a really fun evening and getting me right in to the Christmas Spirit!
Have you bought anything from The Body Shop Christmas collection this year?
