Celebrating AW17 Fashion with intu Milton Keynes

New season! New styles!

Tell me I’m not the only one who’s super excited to get their credit card out and go shopping for fresh new everything?

The other week a few of us local bloggers were invited to the latest intu blogging event all about AW17 fashion and all the beauty products you need to know about this season. The evening kicked off with Prosecco and macaroons…..and don’t the best of evenings start off that way!?

We were joined by the fab fashion brands of Karen Millen, Topshop, Miss Selfridge and New Look, and each of them talked us through their trends for the new season and some of their great key pieces. Karen Millen showed us a beautiful collection of classy monochrome with added burnt orange coloured statement items to add that touch of Autumn. I also loved everything New Look, Topshop and Miss Selfridge had on display. This season, expect reds, amazing sleeves, embroidery, blingy jeans, the most gorgeous snuggly knitwear and a little bit of leather too!

What have you got your eye on this season? I’m thinking of adding a few more mustard coloured items into my wardrobe this season, alongside some new jeans and a million pairs of boots in a variety of colours! My bank account won’t know what’s hit it.

Not only were we graced by the presence of some of our favourite fashion brands from intu Milton Keynes, the beauty teams from Debenhams were there in force, alongside the lovely team from RUSH salon.

I was super pleased to see Bare Minerals there giving mini makeovers and telling us all about their new BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation. This is one brand I’ve really been meaning to delve into a little deeper as I heard they are cruelty free! I love their brand as it’s all about being the best version of you, whether you like wearing liquid or powder foundations, the products are created to take care of your skin. They have the most gorgeous makeup range and I was so impressed to hear that they offer free …yes FREE! makeup lessons at their stand in the beauty section of Debenhams Milton Keynes. I for one will definitely be getting my name down for those very soon.

I also fell in love with the Laura Geller collection of Christmas gifts, they’re so beautifully packaged! I’ve never tried Laura Geller products before, but after hearing they’re cruelty free too, I’m looking forward to giving them a whirl.

I have to say a huge thank you to the following brands for popping some lovely little goodies in our goodie bags for the evening: Lush, Karen Millen, Laura Geller, Clinique, Molton Brown, MAC, RUSH, Glam Glow, Topshop, Lancôme and Wrapchic.

RUSH hair salon (based in intu Milton Keynes) gave us a voucher for a free blow dry, so who was I to say no to a little pampering after work? If you’ve never visited their salon before, I really recommend booking in v. soon and checking out their absolutely stunning salon. It’s a mirrored beauty of a place, with gorgeous design all over. The team are so knowledgeable and really tailor the products they use to your type of hair. For my blow dry we went for a little wavy number, blow drying my hair straight and then adding curly waves using a beautiful GHD classic wave wand which has an oval shaped barrel. RUSH also sell the GHDs instore if you fancy trying the style out at home!
