I was lucky enough to be invited to the grand re-opening of The Body Shop on New Street in Birmingham via The Bloggers Parlour and I was interested to see how the brand had changed since my younger years. If you are a similar age to me it was the place to get white musk (the must have perfume of my teenage years) but the brand has really evolved over the years.
My first impressions of the store was that it was light and airy with plenty of room to manoeuvre so you could browse comfortably. The staff were lovely and very helpful and were on hand to answer any questions. They were also more than happy to offer a skin matching service for their make up.
The displays were beautifully laid out and really made me want to spend but sadly as I am on a very restricted budget at the moment I just bought a few small bits. The collections I wanted to see were the Oils of Life and Drops of Light which look so luxurious and if at sometime money allows I want to try at least one product from the ranges.
I treated myself to some travel size pieces which were on a three for two offer and at the till I was given a tote bag with some goodies in which included my favourite body butter.
I was also really happy to see the lovely Kitty from Adventures of a Riot Grrrl and have a catch up and it was great to meet Abbigayle from The Bloggers Parlour.
All in all it was a fab event and thank you to The Body Shop and The Bloggers Parlour as it was lovely to have a Birmingham based event.
