About two weeks ago I had a Facebook notification pop up on my phone saying that Origins has commented on a comment I had posted on one of their statuses. It was a competition post to meet Tanya Burr at a Meet and Greet Origins event at the John Lewis Flagship store in London. To my complete surprise, I had been one of the 50 lucky winners and so on Wednesday 27th May (hello pay day) myself and Melody made our way to London for a spot of shopping and then the event! Of course, our first stop was Lush on Oxford street - as expected we went a tad crazy (as you may see in a haul post soon) and we ended up spending a good hour and a half in there! Moving on from there we then popped down to Selfridges (I mean who can make a trip to LDN and not visit Selfridges!) and I made the courageous purchase of a gorgeous Michael Kors bag - yes, I can finally wipe that from my wish list! Next on the list was of course an obligatory trip to the Charlotte Tilbury counter and then on to John Lewis!
The event itself was set on the roof of their store, a gorgeous set up of artificial grass, lanterns, palm trees and some gorgeous pastel beach huts! We were all greeted with a gorgeous smoothie and sat down to an Origins mini masterclass where we learnt all about some of their most loved products (of course I then went over to the shop hut and just had to purchase some of them - with 10% off and a free Love Tanya book I couldn't say no). It was then that we all got to stand by as Tanya Burr took to the stage to tell us some of her best skincare top tips and to start the signing session. It was so lovely to meet her, even though it was quite brief, but I had an amazing night and cannot wait to try out the products that I picked up! I'm a huge lover of Origins anyway but have found some new products that I've been dying to try!
