Lush Christmas Blogger Event

Last Thursday, Camille and I were invited to attend the Lush Christmas Blogger Event at the beautiful Lush Queen Street store.

We are serious Lush addicts, so of course we jumped at the chance to go. And I have to say, it was a lot of fun! The Lush girls are always so friendly and best of all they actually know their products inside and out! I swear there is no question they can't answer!

Finding out what's inside our goodie bags!
You pretty much know it's gonna be a good night when you're handed a goodie bag and served a drink as soon as you step through the door. Soon after, they explained everything inside the goodie bags in detail - which made it quite exciting! Not gonna lie, resisting the urge to grab everything out and play with it, was pretty difficult. Hahaha

Lush ladies gloving up for the demo!
We were then split into two groups for the activities of the night! Our group first went over to the counter and watched a full demonstration of how Angels In Bare Skin cleanser is made. It was so cool! The Lush girls are so hilarious, they had us laughing pretty much the whole time. And ohmygoodness, it smelt divine! The coolest part is they actually made enough for us all to take some home - so awesome.

Mixing, rolling... and voila!
Next our group headed over to the other side of the room for a knot wrapping demonstration. Knot wraps are inspired by a traditional type of Japanese wrapping cloth called Furoshiki, where the wrapping of the gift becomes a part of the gift itself. It's the gift that keeps on giving!

Learning how to knot wrap like a pro!
As I'm sure you are all aware, Lush are an ethical company that thrives on reducing landfill. So naturally, these knot wraps are completely reusable. They are all either Greenspun (made from recycled plastic bottles), made by the re-wrap co-operative in India or are upcycled vintage wraps! Love it! They come in a huge range of designs including some very beautiful festive prints that are great for Christmas.

After the demonstration, we all of course had to give it a go ourselves - and we got to choose one to take home! It was so much fun, and now I obviously want to collect them all!

Inbetween all the Lush madness, we mingled with all the other amazing bloggers. Was so lovely to catch up with everyone again - can't wait til the next time!

All in all, it was a fabulous night and I can't thank Barbara and all the amazing Lush girls enough for putting on such a great event. Next time you're on Queen St here in Auckland, make sure you pop in and have a look - you're bound to find the perfect Christmas present for someone special (and maybe two or three for yourself haha!)

And just because, here's a few more snaps from the night:
