Intu Metro Centre Event | #IntuColours |

Wahoooo there is an event in the North East!!

And even better it is in the Metro Centre! 

I've lived in the metro since i could walk, not even joking! I've worked in the metro for 7 years until i took the plunge and moved to the H&M in Newcastle town centre. 

The event was to kickstart their #intucolours campaign for Fashion Live 15. 
We were greeted with a shot of cocktails, cupcakes and macaroons which is the norm for bloggers event and it aint no event without any of these! 
After filling up on these and filling out our stickers which is a fab idea btw! All our blog info filled out onto a sticker and worn as badges because there's nothing worse than meeting up with fellow bloggers and knowing their blogs or twitter names and not actually knowing their real names has happened too many times and is a tad embarrassing! We were then told to take a seat on the FROW to get ready for our very own fashion show. Beiing on the frow was amazing and made us feel very celebrity like as we were treat like VIB (very important bloggers). How cool?! 
On our chair was a goodie bag full of vouchers and mini's, who doesn't love a mini skincream! Also a super cute note pad with the slogan EAT SHOP BLOG on the front. 

I went with two other bloggers which is so nice to meet up with fellow bloggers because lets face it nobody wants to be the one whos on her own and if you don't have blogger friends then this happens quite a lot! Don't get me wrong i still go alone as your blogger friends might not be able to make it or there is no other bloggers going! All i do is head to twitter and see who's heading along and do the typical 'shall we meet before hand?'. The two bloggers i went with were Amy from Salt and Chic and also Lucy from Dinosaur Dances.

We then sat back and enjoyed the fashion show which we had glimpses of  Spring/Summer collections by a few brands based in the Metro Centre such as French Connection, Superdry, River Island, Warehouse andTopshop. 
My fav was River island and Topshop with their khaki colours as i'm obsessed with khaki atm!

We were then asked to take a selfie to win this amazing prize of lots of makeup! Sadly i didn't win, gutted after attempting MANY selfie's in front of the whole of the metro centre. There's nothing worse than pressure selfie!  
 There was also a talk from one of the management at the Personal Shopper team (what a cool job?!) about how it works if you want to give them a visit. £15 an hour and they come around with you picking out things they think you would suit  as well a colour test to see which colour would suit you the most. This would be really good if you have an event coming up like a wedding, prom or a special birthday/

I had a lovely time and want to do it again! 

P.s I do apologise for the quality of the pics as they were taken on my iPhone due to a last minute dash to the event straight from work! Also I took videos of my fav ones and put them on Instagram so if you wanna see those then head to 'girltalkwithlaura' on Instagram! 

Thanks Intu Metrocentre!
