cocktails with intu lakeside


I'm always happy to get involved with local events and organisations so when intu Lakeside invited me to their first ever blogger meet-up in celebration of their 25th birthday I was delighted! The event was held at Lakeside's very own '360 champagne and cocktail bar' at around 7pm in the centre. Bloggers from all over Essex came to enjoy a night full of competitions, cocktails and make-up tutorials from Urban Decay.

A talk was given by intu Lakeside's very own Personal Stylist, Carlene Noel (http://www.carlenenoel.com/) which basically gave an insight to the latest trends including knee/thigh-high boots, sleeveless jackets, 70s prints and fur.



At around 8pm we were each given a cocktail menu. We were going to make our own cocktails! I chose a simple Cosmopolitan because I wanted to embrace my inner Carrie Bradshaw of course.



Okay so here I am pretending to be as good as the bar-tender, shaking my cocktail like there's no tomorrow. Apparently I wasn't shaking it properly and he soon had to take over...


And here was the ending product... how amazing do these look?!


Me with the lovely Hannah over at www.hannahslittlecorner.com - check her out guys, she's lovely!


After cocktails was a chance to mingle with a few of the other bloggers. Travel bloggers, beauty bloggers, bloggers that write about everything, bloggers that do vlogging as well - you name it!


We were then introduced to a make-up artist from Urban Decay to show us the ins and outs of creating the perfect every day look.




All in all it was a great night and I got the chance to meet a variety of fabulous bloggers!



Can't wait to see what else intu Lakeside has in store for us.

All my love,
