Last week I attended the Spring Beauty Event at John Lewis in Cambridge. It’s an exclusive event after the store closes where they let ticket holders come in to shop. Tickets for the event were £5 but you can redeem the money off your first purchase. It was lovely being able to browse the beauty counters without it being super busy! There was also live music which I didn’t release until I saw the singer! She was great, I really though it was a CD playing!
There was plenty of fizz and canapés, and there was even prize draw. I didn’t end up seeing the prizes however I heard they were great!! This is the perfect way to shop with friends. I met my lovely blogger friends as we were all attending the event together and it was so much fun.
Our goodie bag included treats from Espa, Rituals, Charlotte Tilbury, Lance, Aveda, Acqua Di Parma, Clinque, Clarins, Living Proof.
If you’re local you should keep an eye out as I’m sure there will be many more events!
During the event we were allowed to let loose on the womenswear floor, as John Lewis wanted to show us a new brand that’s exclusive to John Lewis called AND /OR. Let’s just say my bank balance is going to hate me!!
It basically all starts with jeans. The AND /OR concept is to start with denim, and then pick and choose what you want to wear with it. Which is a really cool concept! I could tell just by browsing that the quality and comfort are amazing. I couldn’t resist not picking up a gorgeous jumper! The collection has so many lovely pieces that I know I’d wear over and over again. I chose the jumper as I could tell it would be my go-to jumper to put on!
I really want to go back and pick up the suede jacket and a few other pieces. I’ll link my own little wish list down below if you’re interested in what takes my fancy… just please don’t all start ordering as I want a chance of getting my hands them after pay day!!! I really want to strip-back my wardrobe now and have a classic AND /OR style wardrobe. You should definitely check out the brand if you’re into capsule wardrobes.
Great denim works with everything and it makes everything work. AND/OR is a new brand inspired by this simple formula.

Disclaimer: My ticket was free to the event and I enjoyed the event so much I wanted to write about it, as I’m sure they’ll do more fun events you could go and enjoy!! We were shown the AND /OR collection just for our interest, however I COMPLETELY fell in love with it and wanted to share it with you guys!! For more information, please read my disclaimer.
