Elemis Biotec Facial Treatment

Elemis Biotec Facial Treatment

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the Elemis counter at Harvey Nichols in Leeds for a complimentary Biotec facial and to find out all about this new range. I say Elemis ‘counter’ – it’s actually a space where you can relax and try out the products, chat with the salesperson and they’ve even got a little hidden away treatment area where you can have a fantastic relaxing facial. I’d never heard of the Biotec range before and salesperson Sarah explained how it’s been developed for use when your usual skincare routine isn’t working. It helps to energise skin cells so that they react better to your usual products and treatments, so you can use it for short bursts every now and again if your skin isn’t feeling quite right. Then Sarah analysed my skin using the Elemis super-computer. She took a close-up photo of my skin then the system showed all the areas where my face had sun damage, wrinkles, uneven skintone, blemishes, oil or dehydrated patches....

Neal’s Yard Remedies Blogger Event, Leeds

Neal’s Yard Remedies Blogger Event, Leeds

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the Neal’s Yard Remedies store in Victoria Quarter, Leeds, to their blogger day. Their aim was to educate bloggers from around the Yorkshire area about their natural skincare and bodycare products. I recently reviewed their amazing Mothers Bath Oil but I have to admit that this was the only product from Neal’s Yard Remedies that I’d tried so I was looking forward to finding out more. I was welcomed to the store with a glass of fizz and a selection of superb vegan canapés… The event was very informal, first of all I chatted to one of their staff (really sorry I can’t remember her name!) and she told me about the background of Neal’s Yard Remedies – starting off in the back streets of Covent Garden 30 years ago and developing into a national brand.

The City Girls Blogger Event, Leeds

The City Girls Blogger Event, Leeds

I was lucky enough to be invited to #TheCityGirls blogger event which was held last Saturday afternoon at The Liquorist, a new cocktail bar that has recently opened on Greek Street in Leeds. The City Girls is a new venture that has recently been set up by bloggers Lorna and Holly-Lucy, organising blogger events in cities across the country, bringing bloggers and brands together and having fun at the same time. This was the second event that the girls have organised (the first was in Sheffield a few months ago) and they’d done such an amazing job getting lots of brands on board as well as a local charity. After arriving at The Liquorist and treating ourselves to fantastic cocktails the bloggers were given a brief introduction to the day by Lorna & Holly-Lucy. Then followed a really moving and honest talk by Suzie from Leeds Women’s Aid, a charity that helps protect women and children in Leeds from the damage that domestic violence can inflict on their lives. There was...
