Last week, I attended a blogger event in Leeds. I was absolutely chuffed that we finally got an interesting blogger event in this northern city, as most good events seem to be happening in London.
This particular event was arranged by Neal’s Yard Remedies, which is a lovely little beauty shop in County Arcade just off Briggate in Leeds city centre. The event was filled with lovely northern bloggers, including my dear friend Kristina from Mode of Style (who was nice enough to supply me with her high quality photos), and we all had a nice little mingle session.
Neal’s Yard Remedies first started up in Covent Garden more than 30 years ago, and they focus solely on natural and organic health and beauty products, based on herbs and essential oils.
When I first stepped into the shop last Wednesday I was hit by the lovely smell that filled the shop. I tried some products during the event, such as the lovely Melissa Hand Cream with revitalising lemon balm (add to Christmas wish list – check!).
All bloggers that attended the event was also offered a teaser treatment, and I chose the shoulder and neck massage. The masseuse used Neal’s Yard Remedies’ own blend of essential oils for the massage, which was absolutely amazing.
Overall, the event was really lovely, and staff treated us all very well and were very social. Supplying us with what seemed like endless amounts of organic Prosecco and cheese and crackers was also a plus.
I left the event feeling very happy and relaxed after my massage (and alcoholic drinks) and I also received a little goodie bag with gorgeous smelling aromatic bath oil and foam.
