Oh my goodness - it's only 17 days till Christmas! Are you feeling festive yet? I know I am!
Last week I went along to the Christmas shopping event I told you about in my last post. When I arrived at the meeting point (the very swanky Dial Bar at the Mercer Street Hotel), I was very pleased to find the lovely Gemma of Retro Chick and Fritha of Fish Tank Fashion there already. I've know Gemma and Fritha for a long time, so I knew it was going to be a good night! Once we'd enjoyed some delicious festive beverages and snacks, we were ready to go out and explore what the fine retails of Seven Dials and St Martin's Court had on offer.
My favourite retailer of the night was definitely Neal's Yard. Not only were they embracing the Christmas spirit, but they were also celebrating their 30th birthday! And they look pretty damn good for their age too - must be down to all of the natural goodness in their products.
I've always been a fan of Neal's Yard (I'm a big fan of their Organic Wild Rose Beauty Balm). Their products are amazing and smell absolutely delicious. Not only that, but the people who work there are ever so nice! They were handing out drinks and canapes to all of their customers, and were also giving complimentary massages. I had a back and head massage and it was so relaxing! I've since found out that it was one of the lovely Rima of Calm and Clear that worked her magic on me - thanks Rima!
I'd like to thank the lovely ladies at Threepipe for spoiling us, and the brilliant folks over at Neal's Yard. I had a great night, and I look forward to Christmas shopping at Seven Dials again next year!
