Leeds, UK

A month or so ago I had a very prestigious looking 'save the date' email land in my inbox inviting me to the Salon Success press dinner, that's right, little old me being invited to a press dinner! And let me tell you, I was sure excited! 

I'd never have thought, when I started my blog 2 years ago that I'd be getting invites to lah-di-dah dinners like this - Not a chance! God knows, I barely knew what a blog was when I started writing let alone knowing I'd get invites to press dinners & product launches like this. It's times like this when I realise that running a blog has been one of the best decisions I've ever made & I'm so so grateful for the opportunities it brings. I love this little slice of internet! Anywho, lets get back to the night, rather than listen to me being all mushy...

Salon success are 'the distributor of choice' when it comes to the professional beauty and hair care market. They offer support to their salon partners by providing further education & by helping them grow stronger. The company works closely with their salon partners to offer luxurious brands such as Paul Mitchell and New CID Cosmetics, both of which we got to preview during the press dinner.

Amy & Kim from salon success held the dinner at the Leeds Malmaison in the private 'Ticket Office' dining room, a stunningly decorated quaint, cosy room. I was immediately impressed upon entering the space, purely down to the amount of work the girls had put in to transform the space. The table was laid immaculately with a whole array of Paul Mitchell products surrounding our place mats and wine glasses (yaaas wine), There was also a white gift bag sat on our seats embellished with the New Cid Cosmetics logo, along with our very own personalised thank you letter, which was an amazing touch & one I'm sure all of us bloggers very much appreciated.

We were treated to an amazing three course meal which consisted of a creamy mozzarella starter, followed by the most delicious tender piece of lamb which was served with a mint and basil pesto, miniature roast potatoes and steamed greens. And as if I wasn't full already I then had, not one, not two, but three desserts popped down in front of me. All of which were amazing - I'm definitely a dessert type of gal!

I'm going to go more in depth about the products we were shown at the Salon Success at a later date, purely because there's just so many of them & I'm not here to bore the socks off you... I hope I'm not boring the socks off you anyway!

Thank you so so  much to Amy & Kim for inviting me down to the wonderful Malmaison, I had an amazing time and I can't wait to start trying out my new goodies.

Lots of love. Claire.x
