HTC Rhyme & PopSugar VIP Event @ Lattouf Day Spa

WHEN: Thursday, 20th October at 6.30pm

WHERE: LATTOUF Hair & Day Spa, Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, 61-101 Phillip Street, Sydney.

I was very excited to attend this event, I knew there was going to be all kinds of pampering going on.  As we walked in the door there were loads of people walking around sipping on champagne and nipping on food.  There was sooo much food  everywhere, everyone could of easily filled themselves up.  There were grilled chicken breast skewers, prawn skewers, beef skewers, sushi, spring rolls, food for vegetarians and as my son calls himself  'meat vegetarian'!  It was free flowing and non stop all night you had to actually turn the food away.

The layout of the salon was fabulous, firstly, I had my hair done, then a neck massage, followed by a mani, I was waiting for a foot massage but I would of had to wait for more than an hour and I had to leave so I only got two treatments which I am more than happy with. 

In between all the food and treatments there were HTC techs walking around with the latest phones showing each individual the functions of the phone and new features.  There was a speech by the marketing manager of HTC. 

We also entered a competition to win one of 5 phones and you wouldnt believe it, my friend received the call the following morning saying she won the phone, I was estatic!  Out of all the people that were there one of us got it, I tell you something she desperately needed a new phone so it was well deserved!

Anyway, the night ended in a high, it was a wonderful night, we got spoilt and stuffed, we played and poked around with phones and walked away with a pretty decent goody bag.

Sydney Westfield Styling Session with Dove

WHEN: 21st October 4.00pm

WHERE: Westfield Sydney City, Level 5, Style Lounge, Pitt St Mall

Dove hosted an intimate event at Sydney's Westfield.  I won a double pass to attend this exclusive event via Westfield's. The room decked out in and pink, very pretty. I spotted a couple of people I knew so it was nice to have a quick chat. The lovely stylist Trish Murray was going through the rack of whats hot for summer and I tell you there were some lovely pieces, all available from the stores in Westfield.  As the evening went on, sipping on mineral water and eating nibblies and watching the near perfect model modelling each outfit, I was ticking off my list of items to buy.  I'm sooo looking forward to shopping this spring with all the block colouring and nice wedge shoes, apparently sand coloured shoes are the ones to get this season!

After an hour of face stuffing, and oohing and aaahing at the prettiest pieces, it was time to leave.  We were all handed a goodie bag.  It was amazing!  I did not expect the goodies that we got, there was a $50 Westfield gift voucher, a $195 value pashmina scarf beautifully wrapped and boxed, a bundle of Dove products, a cute little make-up purse from Beautyheaven, a discount voucher for wine and yummy chocolates from Cadbury.

We took the bus home and almost polished off the box of chocolates!

I'm going to start including photos in my blogs, I am still learning the ropes on blogging so hopefully it will be more entertaining to read.

Aveeno Active Naturals - Positively Radiant Cleanser

I love trawling the isles in Priceline looking for new products and brands that have hit the shelves.

This time round I discovered Aveeno.  A softer natural range from the people behind Johnson & Johnson.

I stocked up on body wash, body moisturiser and bath milk.  I absolutely love Aveeno range especially for my son.

The fragrance is soft and subtle and very inviting. It is very gentle to use on children. The packaging is friendly and natural looking. The bottle fits nicely in my hand without slipping.  The texture of the cleanser is soft, smooth and silky which felt really nice. 

The cleanser is gentle with very little foaming.  I personally prefer a product to foam up, I feel like I get a better clean.

Price tag is mid range with the occasional specials at Priceline, Woolies or Coles
