Event | What I Received In My London Fashion Weekend AW15 Goodie Bag

It's no secret, in fact I've practically been bragging about it on social media recently, but last week I had the amazing opportunity to head down to London Fashion Weekend. This was my first LFWend experience & honestly, the whole experience made my year (so far). Part of the event included being greeted with a fabulously filled goodie bag, lets take a peek inside...

London Fashion Week Show Guide.*
Not only did the 20 page booklet notify a schedule events from industry talks to trend & designer catwalk times but it also had a huge section of shopping opportunities and future trends. Luckily for me the future trends included 'make it monochrome' something I'm more than happy to showcase, but also 'that seventies show'. I'm growing more and more intrigued by this trend, I'm in desperate need of some flares that I could team with a pair of chunky heeled mary-janes. 

Urban Fruit Smashing Strawberry.*
We ate these on the coach back from London & let me tell you, I really can't decide whether I like them or not, they've got such a strange taste to them. The strategy behind Urban Fruit is creating fruity snacks with no preservatives and no  sugar, which is a lovely idea... But honestly I was fully craving that sugary goodness. The chunks of strawberries are baked in the oven & have that dried fruit/raisin type texture, which for me is why I think I wasn't all keen - The texture of these Urban Fruit snacks just wasn't for me.

Lavazza Espresso Coffee Beans.*
I'm a huge coffee fan/snob so I was chuffed to see these at the bottom of my goodie bag. We've been meaning to buy a cafetiere at home, and receiving this little pack of goodness has really given us the kick up the backside to get one. These Lavazza beans are of medium roast and stated as being intense & velvety, which I just love! I can't wait to try these out.

Essie Nail Laquer in shade Roarrrange.*
Another one for my Essie collection... Fortunately I don't own anything as bright as this so it'l make a welcome addition to my collection. I love the name of this too! I always think Essie polishes have the best names! I'd love to be the person who decided on what to call their different colours, that'd be such a cool job! This bright orange colour will be prefect for Spring/Summer and I can't wait to get wearing it.

Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Cat Eye Mascara.*
This has come at just the right time for me! Somehow (don't ask me how) but I've lost my trusty Soap & Glory mascara so I'm in need of a new mascara. Although I haven't tried this one, I've tried various Maybelline mascaras before and have never been dissappointed so I'm looking forward to giving this one a go. I'm really intrigued by the curved 'feline' brush, I've got pretty high hopes about this one!

Kleenex Balsam Pocket Size Tissues.*
Because they'll come in useful one day! I'm going to keep these in my handbag for those emergency days!

Have you used any of these products before? Or did you also go to London Fashion Weekend & received these items - What did you think?



  1. Ooh, lucky you! The Urban Fruit snack sounds strange, haha. The coffee sounds lovely! We bought a cafetiere last year and it's nice to be able to try a wider variety of coffees now! xxx
