A huge thank you to The Apartment and Braun for a wonderful day filled with expert tips, shopping and new blogging pals – oh, and for making me feel like I can break free in any outfit this Summer! If you want to check out a super fun video of our day then you can do so here (disclaimer, expect to see a lot of laughing!).
Last week I headed to the beautiful Rosewood Hotel with the lovely ladies from The Apartment and some lovely bloggers to celebrate Braun’s breakfree campaign. We arrived at the hotel in the morning and was greeted by a beautiful breakfast of pastries, fresh fruit and pancakes whilst we all discussed our experience with the new Braun Silk-Epil 9 (there were also some horror stories thrown in too of previous epilator-related experiences when we were younger which was hilarious to hear!).
Once we’d finished up at breakfast we marched down to Covent Garden for our blogger challenge – we each had £100 to spend on an outfit which beared our legs so we could show how we break free with our fashion choices and prepare our legs for the summer. It was utter chaos, bloggers flying in and out of the changing rooms with armfuls of clothes and it was actually quite stressful as the clock was on, as well as the pressure!
Doing what bloggers do best, a large portion of us headed to Zara, where I actually picked up my whole outfit! I’d wanted these tassel sandals for ages and was so happy to finally own them, I paired them with a beige laser cut faux leather skirt and a lightweight blue linen shirt which is great for the Summer! I was glad I’d finally sorted my outfit then we waited for the rest of the bloggers to finish their shop and we headed back to the hotels.
Once we arrived back at the hotel we all took it in turns at different stations preparing ourselves for our breakfree photoshoot where we styled our new buys! We had our legs prepped by Nathalie Eleni who actually works with celebrity clients to help make their legs look phenomenal for events, she’s also a Braun beauty therapist which was great to get some top tips from her on how to keep my legs summer ready all year round!
I then finished off my hair and makeup before taking to the courtyard with the wonderful photographers; Kris Atomic and Andrew Kendall to shoot our looks! All in all it was an amazing day where I got to learn lots of useful tips on how to make my legs summer ready (more on that soon) and I also met lots of lovely new bloggers which is always a highlight!
Here are some pictures from the day (all shot by the lovely Kris Atomic & Andrew Kendall!)…
