If you’ve been following my blog for a while now you’ll probably know that I am obsessed with LUSH cosmetics, and luckily for me, I somehow managed to get a job there! And if you are as big of a ‘Lushie’ as I am you’ll also know that with the arrival of the new Oxford Street store, comes a whole load of new products. This past Thursday, my little LUSH store held a bloggers event as a preview to the new release of products which launched yesterday (Friday 7th), and because I’m a fan of all things blogging and social media I jumped at the chance to help work the event.
Thursday was a crazy day. From 9am we were working on last minute prep for the evening; getting goodie bags together, cleaning the party room, merchandising the new products, and making sure everything was ready for when the store closed since we only had an hour to dress the shop! We worked our butts off but boy was it worth it. The whole thing was one of the best times I’ve had since starting work at LUSH.
Downstairs on the shop floor we had all our new products, as well as LUSH cupcakes, refresher drinks, and a prize table for the Instagram competition we were running on the night. Upstairs we had a Comforter making workshop where you could go and make your own Comforter bubble bar for free! Everyone also had the opportunity to buy any products before they launched to the public, and judging by the response from everyone who attended, it was a good night all round. It’s always so refreshing to be able to talk to people who are equally as excited as you are about the products, because let’s face it, some people just don’t want to talk about bath bombs for half an hour! I apologise in advance for the ridiculous amount of photos in this post, but I just couldn’t narrow it down!
I definitely would love to do more events like this in the future, and if your local store ever does one then you must make sure you go because it’s such fun! Hope you’re all doing well, and if you’ve seen any of the new LUSH products, let me know; whats your favourite?!
