Gunwharf Quays | Treat Yourself & We'll Treat You!
This evening, I had the opportunity to visit Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth for an exclusive "Treat Yourself & We'll Treat You" event, focusing on offering treats, discounts and exclusive pampering in association with Glamour.com. It really was a great way to make shopping feel that extra special and I had a fab evening!
It didn't feel right without my best friend and fellow blogger Megan, so I bought her along with me. We briefly met lots of familiar blogging faces and the organisers at the restaurant Las Iguanas. We munched on the great selection of food whilst admiring all the latest treads that stylist Michelle Kelly had hand-selected for us. A real mix from beiges to brights this season!
If you pre-registered for the event, you were given a wrist band which entitled you to discounts across 40 of the centre's stores and restaurants, including Ted Baker, Molton Brown, Cath Kidston and Jack Wills to name a few. Although I didn't treat myself, I did purchase one little gift from The Cosmetics Company for Mother's Day and gained 10% off! Whilst shopping (mostly browsing and chatting), we were offered refreshments in almost every store ranging from cake, a glass of orange juice and some chocolate moose! It really added to our shopping experience overall.
We were kindly given a goodie bag containing a few chocolates, The Body Shop shower gel, Crabtree & Evelyn hand therapy and nail varnish which was super generous and I can't wait to use everything up! Due to the distance I have to travel, I hadn't been to Gunwharf for over a year however, it reminded me just how lovely it really is. The whole centre is really clean, full of a variety of shops and open until 8pm Monday-Saturday! I loved this exclusive event and will be returning very soon.
