Let’s reminisce for a second. Remember when you were younger, where you’d go to party. And there would be balloons, and music, fizzy lemonade and goody bags? Well last week I went to one of those parties, but for blogger babes, known as the Very Valentines event. And as the big V-day is slowly approaching, this was the perfect opportunity to see what’s hot this year and what we need to be treating ourselves to, or hinting about this Valentines.
So let me set the scene, a hallway with all the pink lighting and huge pink balloons, a big room filled with gorgeous brands showcasing underwear, hair and make up and beauty secrets, the most stunning babe on the decks throwing out some tunes. And all the bubbles! But not the bubbles you had as a child, prosecco of course! Anyone who knows me knows I love a good natter! So although a little nervous (the bubbles helped!) I got to meet and chat to so many other lovely bloggers and some well known and newly discovered brands. So today I thought I’d share some cheeky snaps from last week and some of my favourite brands and products from the night.
I was invited to the event by the lovely ladies at Curvy Kate as they were showcasing some sneaky peaks for AW18, as well as some pieces that they have released just in time for valentines day including some must have sets that Very stock. Curvy Kate will always be one of my top brands for big boobed babes as their designs are so pretty, and they were the first brand that really showed me that bigger busted bras didn’t have to be boring! Also season after season their collections are so refreshing and they are constantly looking at extending their sizing in different ranges, and currently go from a size 28D to a 44G including a wide range of K cup bras in between!
A brand that I re-kindled my love that night for was Wonderbra. Although they only go up to a G cup and their band sizes to a 38 their new valentines sets were so beautiful, and their cupcakes on show matched their bras! That is goals right? For my ladies who love pretty undies and a banging push up bra these are right up your street. And with my current sizing being a 34G I cannot wait to try them out!
There was so much beautiful underwear and swimwear on show from such a massive variety of brands including Freya, Elomi and Panache which I’ve always loved for their bigger busted designs that flatter and fit well. It was so lush to see some of the more supportive pieces from Elomi including many shades of red, perfect for Valentines! It was also really interesting to find out more from the more well known high street brands such as Boux Avenue, Pour Moi and Ann Summers. I found out all about their size ranges and how they have extended some of their collections for the fuller busted, with Ann summers especially now going up to a H cup!
We all love pick and mix don’t we ladies? I don’t know anyone who doesn’t so when I saw the make up pick and mix I couldn’t have been happier! Featuring a mixture of high street make up brands that Very stock on their site, including a few that I love to use regularly – Bourjois, Maybelline and Rimmel I was definitely spoilt for choice. And if I hadn’t already pin curled my hair or had my nails done I could’ve enjoyed a bit of a pamper, as the Remington products were out in full force for ladies night!
Here’s one to hint at as well ladies this Valentines, I discovered ChloBo jewellery and their stunning collection of charm bracelets and sterling silver stacking bracelets for maximum effect. I really love the charm meanings section on their main site so you can really make it personal, when buying for someone special, or yourself!
Overall it was just so lovely to have such a variety of brands that catered for so many different women, meaning there was definitely something for everyone there. And in all honesty it was really refreshing to be, dare I say it? Child free for the night with so many gorgeous ladies, having the ultimate girly night! I was truly inspired for this Valentines and have definitely got a few pieces on my wish list. Also remember how you used to leave a party when you were younger and you’d get a party bag full of goodies? Well Very get the award for best party bag EVER, including sweets, Vera Wang perfume and a scented candle! Has my blog inspired you for Valentines?
