Intu Milton Keynes invited some MK Bloggers for another lovely evening showing us the new services and collections that are on offer at their shopping centre. The night started in the gorgeous Loaf & Bloom located in Debenhams, very instagrammable place! Here we were greeted with Processco and some delicious food.
We had the privilege to meet with Debenhams personal shoppers, who spoke about the new SS18 trends and Debenhams bridal wear. They are so lovely and can help you with finding the perfect outfit for those special occasions or a wardrobe revamp. Definitely worth checking out.
The next part of our evening took us to Dior backstage, where we met Lucy. Lucy talked us through the new products Dior has to offer and what they do at Dior backstage. The new Dior Addict Lacquer Plump comes in 16 beautiful shades. Of course the nudes were my favourite but I did also love the red in shade 868. We were also matched up to our perfect shade of foundation. Taking a girl to a make up stand is like taking a child to the sweet shop, you just want absolutely everything!
The last part of the evening took us to Lush. Here they showed us all their new Easter products and gave us some demos on their best Easter sellers. The gold egg was like highlighter in a bowl, the glow from the demonstration bowls was insane. I particularly liked the carrots as these can be used more than once, you simply run them under the tap whilst you run your bath. My children have found their love for bath bombs and there are so many cute ones the kids will love.
We were also shown their massage bars, some of these smelled so good you could have eaten them and their new Naked Shower Cream, we were very lucky to find one of these in our goodie bag.
Intu set us a little challenge to find 3 capsule pieces for our wardrobe for SS18, I already had in mind 2 items that are a must for me.
First a fresh pair a white leather Converse, these go with everything and are perfect for the Spring-Summer season and are easy to keep clean. I decided to mix it up a bit and choose white and rose gold. Anyone who knows me, knows rose gold is my thing whether that be homeware or adding that touch to an outfit. These Converse are Exclusive to Office.
My next capsule piece has to be a denim dress. I absolutely love a pinafore dress, but unfortunately for me my body shape doesn’t allow me to pull this look off. I did find a denim pinafore dress in H&M that is so nice I just had to share it, so my friend Dani kindly modeled it for me. For myself I found the perfect denim dress, its more flowing and longer to help hide my legs and this is from New Look, I might even use my Intu gift voucher that was in my goodie bag to treat myself to it.
I’m not going to lie and I did have to cheat a little and go online because they didn’t have these in store when I started this challenge. So for my third item for me it has to be a pair a sunglasses. My collection is getting rather large now but these definitely need to be added to it. I love how sassy they are and the colour is perfect for SS18 and you pick these up from Topshop.
There was one final part of this challenge and that was to find a Star Buy, something on our lust list. My Star Buy item is this beautiful Black Stud Sequin Boucle Jacket from Star by Julien Macdonald in Debenhams.
Thank you again to Intu Milton Keynes for inviting me along and for generous goodie bag and also to all the retailers that made the evening so enjoyable and left me wanting to shop till I drop into a bath with a Lush Easter bath bomb!
