Glamour x New Look Event

I've been a reader of Glamour for as long as I can remember... my Mum used to buy the odd issue, and I'd always conveniently borrow and keep them! By the age of 16 I was a regular buyer, and scrapbooked so many issues! One cutting of a beautiful tweed Chanel dress has been centre of my pinboard for years (I will have the 10k to buy it one day!) 
In last month's edition, there were details of a reader event with New Look at their London Oxford Circus store with a promise of talks, manicures and discounts throughout the evening. I e-mailed and was luckily was allocated two tickets! 

I decided to bring along my sister, so last Thursday we hopped on the train to London! 

We found a Photo Booth in Urban Outfitters. I was super impressed with the emoji background!

Upon arriving, I got to take a pick of a Casso Cocktails I picked Apricot Mai Tai as my first one which was gorgeous! 
Then a Coconut Mojito which was just as lovely! The jars were so cute as well as the pink paper straws they came with too! I've been on their website and am hoping when they release stockists, there'll be somewhere in South London/online to buy them... I feel the need to try a Peach Appletini!!!
On the stage and to the side were lots of outfit ideas. Throughout the whole evening, I felt like I could buy everything in New Look and somehow make it work for my summer/work wardrobe! 
Our trend talk was at 7:30pm and was held by Lucy & Julia. I loved all of their outfit ideas, especially the bomber jacket and slip look!
After the talks we were left to browse the store. They had a manicure section, photobooth, DJ aswell as discounts on spend and free gifts with purchases. I nearly ended up buying a bomber jacket (or 10!)
Alongside this bag that my sister spotted and I fell in love with! 
We also got a goodie bag from the event (excuse the dark photo, but it wasn't long until people started claiming some of my freebies as soon as I got home!) ... the bag included GHD Root Lift Spray, a full size Liz Earle cleanser and polish cloth, face mask, nail polish, sweets and a purse by New Look and pop chips & coconut water! I had such a fantastic time especially as I don't often go to events midweek due to work. Here's hoping they hold another event soon!
