Have you heard? Mabel Goulden is the latest Origins Brand Ambassador (otherwise known as ‘Glow Girls’, which is just so fitting.)
She hosted her very first event on the first Sunday of December, in the flagship store on Stonegate. The store opened less than a year ago, and it’s definitely worth a visit; whether it’s for a mini-facial, a browse around the store or their exclusive shopping evenings.
Mabel was the perfect host on a cold and snowy evening, and we were welcomed by a glass of Prosecco and a selection of beautiful cakes!
Hannah’s Cakes and Bakes (@hannah_lowes_xx) were to die for; I loved her gingerbread and mince pie brownie creation. We all agreed: they were really, really delicious.
The upstairs bit (read: your dream living room) was turned into a mini Christmas market/cake-eating area. Kate from Unostar had displayed her gorgeous new wreaths and Thora & The Prince brought the most stylish Christmas decorations in a million miles. We were lucky enough to be entered in a raffle, to which York Cocoa House had donated a prize.
I sampled a few products, Prosecco in hand, and ogled their dreamy gift boxes, which really are the perfect last-minute Christmas present for pretty much anybody. You’re guaranteed to make someone happy!
I was really looking forward to the complementary mini-facial; it didn’t disappoint and I walked home feeling radiant and totally refreshed (or that might have been the Prosecco. Who knows.) Their shorter facials are always free, but if you’re feeling really stressed out, book yourself in for an hour-long session for £65, which is fully redeemable in store.
Hannah used a deeply nourishing combination that worked absolute wonders. The Modern Friction Cleansing Oil was particularly memorable, and left my skin feeling incredibly soft for several days! I mean, can you really think of a better way to spend Sunday evening than getting your face massaged with the most exquisite lotions and potions?
I walked away with a lovely goodie bag, which included the Frothy Face Wash (which I already loved!) and a Mineral Enriched Night Cream. It was definitely a night to remember, and I’m so excited to attend more of Mabel’s events in 2018!
