I love a trip over the Pennine’s to visit Manchester.  It’s a train journey I do on a regular basis for either business, a night away, a music gig or some shopping.  On this occasion I had managed to get myself a spot at #beautychatLIVE to see two of my favourite bloggers Lily from Lily Pebbles and Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup.  I documented my day on Snapchat, you can add me ‘CarolineTowers.’

When I arrived in Manchester I had a little wander around the shops before meeting a friend for lunch and cocktails.  We went to The Alchemist and both the steak sandwich and rum punch were delicious.  We were so busy chatting that I forgot to take some photos!

A few hours later and it was time to make my way to Space NK to see bloggers Lily and Anna.  They blog a lot about beauty but it is their vlogs which I love the most.

Although I’m not a beauty blogger I still thought it would be a fun evening to do something different so I went along.  We had a champagne reception before the girls answered questions.  They came across as such lovely, friendly people and after the official questions they made time for everyone to have a quick chat and a photo.

On the night I bought myself some Diptique candles.  I’ve been eyeing them up for a while.  I went for the smaller sizes to see which I like the most!  I also got some eyelash curlers from Kevyn Aucoin, I’ve had my previous pair for years and years and to be honest very rarely use them as they are rubbish!  I can’t wait to see how well my shiny new ones curl my eyelashes, they were recommend by two of the assistants in Space NK so I’m expecting good things.

We also got a goodie bag full of lots of items, my favourite being the tangle teaser.  I have fancied one for a while.  As my hair is now so long, sometimes it gets a little bit tangled so I’m looking forward to using that.

All in all it was a great day over in Manchester.  I am now looking forward to a cosy night in with curled eyelashes, tangle free hair and delicious scented candles!
