Oh hey pastel colour perfection! It doesn't take more than stylish design and dreamy interiors to get me swooning and that's exactly what I did when I entered the Leman Locke Hotel a few weeks back, for another fabulous brand event by Weekend:IN.

This space has been on my must visit list for soooo long now as the interior is total dream goals, and such a great place to host a day of networking and discovering 'new to me' brands!

I mean just look at this interior!

If you're not familiar with Weekend:IN then let me get you up to speed! Founded by Olivia Tripp, this brilliant Bristol based team helps independent brands engage with their audience through events, marketing and create a dynamic discussion with their audience, even on a small budget! Sounds good ay! Plus Olivia has such a good eye for design so I couldn't wait to see what the day had in store.

I picked out the best brands from the day that would make it onto any pastel perfection gift guide! I love that I can recommend these products from seeing them in person.

We spent the day switching between two apartments, each laid out with various products allowing us to style them and try them in our own time, snapping pics left, right and centre before indulging in a delicious lunch from Treves & Hyde.

Here's a little round up of each brand that made it onto the gift guide :)

MISS POMPOM

I'm not sure how this independent knitwear brand has passed me by but let me swoon right now! Based in Brixton, London, this brand embodies geometric patterns and bold colours to create playful over sized scarfs and chunky bobble hats. I loved the range and tried on a few styles on the day, but have to say my favourite was the Mondrian scarf, so soft!

PLUM & ASHBY

Focusing on beautiful products for the home with simple elegant design, Plum & Ashby have a great range of products. I love their classic brown glass candles and tried out the luxury Honey & Jojoba Hand Cream, with has the most wonderful scent. Definitely perfect stocking fillers.

STALF

Oh hey cute and comfortable clothes of dreams! I immediately was drawn to the neutral and pastel coloured palette of the collections, made up of stylish simple linen pieces. The story behind STALF Studio comes from a passion of the yonder years, to create designs that transcend season and trends, but hold a place in your heart. Oh and did I mention how unbelievably SOFT the fabric is! My favourite has to be the Cocoon Jumpsuit in Ice cream and Denim and this super soft organic sweatshirt.

ELIE BEAUMONT

If you're looking for a little bit of wrist candy this winter then look no further than Elie Beaumont. I was pleasantly surprised by the range of watches, colours, straps and face sizes, especially as I have quite small wrists so it was good to find a brand that caters for everyone. I loved the additional touch of personalised engraving to make the perfect gift.

SHOREDITCH NAILS

I was really looking forward to this part of the day, as we got to pampe rourselves to a little nail art from Shoreditch Nails *YAY!* Known for their spot manicure we got to choose from a variety of designs and relax. Even though it's London based, I would definitely recommend a gift voucher to treat a loved one or get festive ready for party season.

PEAS & NEEDLES

I think I've found my new passion thanks to Lucy from Peas & Needles! To finish the day we tried our hand at weaving on a Lap Loom and I must say I don't think I've found something so creative and calming in a long time. We were shown simple weaving techniques to create our own weave and I can quickly see me making these beauties for friends! I would recommend getting yourself booked onto a weaving workshop with Lucy ASAP!
