Grabbing my daily caffeine fix, I rushed onto the platform on Sunday to meet my pal Fritha who had also been invited to attend, and shared the train with hoards of football fans who were heading to Wembley before stepping off into the picturesque city of Bath.
No.3 Hairdressing where we met up were treated to a blow-dry and styling while chatting away with some of the other fab bloggers who attended. I'm not a girly girl but I do love a trip to the hairdressers, chatting and relaxing while someone makes my mop look good rather than the usual I forgot to comb it look I tend to rock now I'm a mama.
Once we were looking fab we headed over to Hall & Woodhouse for a bite to eat and to
chat network over a cheeky glass of wine and delicious food. I went for the Halloumi and falafel burger without the bun and it was yummy! If you haven't visited before I would definitely recommend it, the interior is simultaneously eclectic and grand, and there is a beautiful central spiral staircase winding it's way up to the top floor.
I haven't been in Bath's House of Fraser store known as Jolly's, for a while so it was great to head to the Jaeger's concession department and see the refurbishment. I loved the huge mirror and slate grey walls which really made the S/S15 colour pop. Jaeger is sponsoring Bath in Fashion 2015 by hosting six bespoke events called 'Conversations of Style' throughout the week, and as part of that we were challenged to create an outfit based on the top trends for this season: Monochrome, Seventies chic, Safari styling, Life in Colour, Bold Blooms, Bewitching Denims and New Pastels. I immediately thought I would gravitate to my favourite Monochrome but I found this coral dress and was smitten, so teamed it with a belt and navy jacket.
All the ladies looked great in their outfits and although Jaeger is certainly more a high end price range there are a few pieces in the £40-£60 range making it accessible to most. I found that the sizes were rather generous which means I could fit into a size smaller than I would normally – always a nice ego boost ;) and I loved the quality of the clothes.
After styling our outfits in the private dressing suite and enjoying some macaroons, we were given a goodie bag from Jaeger and Lancome – which included a tester of Vissionaire Corrector which I've been using at home and have adding to my must have daily beauty list – before saying our farewells and heading back to my little family.
*I would like to thank Jaeger for asking me to attend their blogging event. All words & opinions are 100% my own.
