On Friday I was lucky enough to spend a lovely afternoon with Boots checking out some new beauty trends for Spring at their 'give it a go' event. The idea of the event was all about trying something you might not normally do, like rocking a red lip, a bright blue eyeliner or a new hair or nail look. My friend Fei got her nails done and Jayne got an amazing victory rolls hairdo from Mark Coats using Bumble and Bumble products. My favourite thing to give a go myself was the Orla Kiely glasses I'm wearing - I need some new glasses for using my PC at work and I think these are the perfect mix of geek and chic. I'm also planning to try out that fabulous half moon manicure.
I got to pick out some great new products to try at home, so I'll blog about those soon once I've given them a go!
