One of the things I love most about blogging is the opportunity to attend various launches and events. You know it’s your true calling in life when you can work on them on a 9 – 5 basis and still run straight up to London for more once you’re done. Last week I popped up to the big smoke for an evening with Luce (blog link here) and Bumble & Bumble. They’re launching their own limited edition range of hair chalks in various pastel shades, as well as their pret-a-powder, a voluminsing, refreshing, texturising powder in non-spray form (If you want to hear more about those then check back later today).
The event details were fairly simple and straight forward, but so enjoyable at the same time. It really works for more drop-in type events as you never really feel like you’re missing anything. They had the bar and pic ‘n’ mix stall, with drinks and sweets available in various colours matching those which the hair chalks come in. My favourite drink was a simple mix of lychee, rum, lemon and sugar. It was delicious and was swiftly followed by a bag of sweets, mostly containing apple bon-bons.
We also had a chance to catch up with Amelia, words most energetic and adorable blogger, and made our way to the photo booth, complete with hair related quotation bubbles. Photo booths are such a simple feature but make the whole experience more memorable, which is beneficial for everyone really. Once we were done making some very interesting faces, Amelia and I watched as Luce was given a little sprucing up using the pret-a-powder.
We then toddled off to Muji and went for a very productive wander down Oxford Street. But that’s a story for another day…
Don’t forget to check back later this afternoon for more Bumble & Bumble reviews!
