On Thursday 30th April, I attended my first blogging event, which was at Crabtree and Evelyn – a retailer of body and skin products.
I was incredibly nervous prior to the evening and was even more nervous during the event. I have never been very good at introducing myself to people, so I only spoke to a small handful of other bloggers during the event. Hopefully I will get better at introducing myself to other people soon… but at the moment I totally suck at it!
When I first arrived, I was given a complimentary hand exfoliation as well as a moisturising treatment. I decided to opt for a lavender exfoliation and moisturiser, as the Crabtree and Evelyn lady said that lavender was really good for people with psoriasis. After the demonstration, I could see how much the redness on my hands had disappeared.
In store I noticed they had a lot of lavender products, which I had to tempt myself not to buy, as I am currently skint until payday… I will be back on the 15th once I am a bit richer! Here are a few of the lavender products, which I will be buying:

The shop was also beautifully decorated and I enjoyed a few drinks and a couple (cough cough lots cough cough) of delicious biscuits and cakes.
At the end of the night I was shocked to be given a complimentary goodie bag. I wasn’t expecting anything, so to get a little bag of treats was a delight. I will be doing a post about the goodie bag delights in the next week or so.
The Crabtree & Evelyn Bloggers event was created to help green fingered individuals help restore, soothe and protect their hands and with a hint of lavender in the products I am looking forward to sharing with you how the products have helped with my psorasis next weekend! Stay tuned!
