PopFest2013 VIP Gifts & Giveaway!

Hi lovelies, hope you're all well!

On Sunday (18th August) I was incredibly lucky to attend The Big Reunion Live @ Castle Howard, which is a beautiful stately home located in York. The house itself is absolutely beautiful and the grounds are phenomenal. I had a lovely day chasing my daughter around the parks and the magical forests! Although it was a very long day, we had so much fun and it is a day I shall certainly not forget for some time. 
I grew up listening to the bands who were playing at the event and Atomic Kitten in particular were a band who I admired to be like! The atmosphere was fantastic and it was great to relive my youth for the day! 

You're probably wondering why I'm writing about this on a beauty blog, right?! Well....I was fortunate enough to have an Access All Areas pass, which meant I spent most of the day backstage, watching rehearsals, rubbing shoulders with the stars and their families. (They make seriously cute kids!!) I even stood on the stage as Atomic Kitten were preparing for their warm up. We had the best seats in the house, in the security pit at the very front of the stage.

 My absolute favourite part of the day, being the beauty obsessive I am, - though a cuddle from Simon Webbe AND Lee Ryan is hard to top - was a visit to the VIP Gifting tent! Quite a few companies had come together to give goodie bags to the stars - I'm talking fake tan, make-up, champagne, clothes, hair products, teeth whitening, the lot!
Though I wasn't really anyone important, I was still lucky enough to receive a bag of great products from a few companies. Boy did I feel spoilt!

The first thing I was given, was from Laurens Way - her 'Bigger' big bun!
I was then taken to Miners Cosmetics and received around £30 worth of make-up, which I can't wait to try out.
Last but not least, I received a HUGE bag of tanning products from TanTruth. We all know I love my tan! I was given items from their pre-release collection - 'The VIP collection' which is set to be available in salons & spas shortly.

I quickly realised that I really don't need SO much Fake Tan. So after giving a set to my mums friend (who was super jealous!) I have decided that I am going to give away one of the sets to one of our followers!

The prize consists of:
100ml The Perfectionist Body Scrub
100ml The Ultimate Self Tan Lotion
100ml The Bronze Face Gel
