Selfridges Birmingham ‘Work It’ campaign

Hi Everyone!

I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the Selfridges Birmingham ‘Work It’ campaign. I had a lovely time meeting & shopping with some other local bloggers, including Sarah from andbeautyorsomething, Vanessa from theothervw & Ting from thetingthing.

In this post, I wanted to share all the fantastic events, workshops & express services available at the Selfridges Birmingham until the middle of June. The idea behind the campaign is that all the exciting experiences fit in & around work - hence ‘Work it’. Everything available either fits into a lunchtime or is something you can drop in for after a day at work. Let’s start with the events, which I am really excited about!


Tuesday 12 May, 6:30-8pm
Illamasqua: Alex Bob & Spob - ‘Careers In Makeup’
The Creative Director of Illamasqua, Alex Bob & the Head of Professional Development, Spob, will be at Selfridges with an exciting opportunity to hear all about the inner-workings of the beauty industry. A must for those hoping to break into the profession & beauty lovers alike.
Tickets cost £35 & are available from the Illamasqua counter.

Thursday 14t May, 12-3pm
Meet Vivianna Does Makeup
Drop in to meet Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup as she talks about working as a full-time blogger & YouTuber as well as the beauty tools she wouldn’t be without. I met Anna last summer at her picnic with Lily Pebbles & she is lovely! Health being well, this is an event I’ll be attending so let me know if you’re planning on going too!

Thursday 21st May, 6-7pm
Pretty and Professional
Join Personal Beauty Shopper Rose (from the blog Mixed Gems Beauty) as she shares with you her work makeup tricks. She’ll be looking at makeup that will last throughout the day as well as quick, easy & faff free products to make your morning routine that little bit easier. After all, who wouldn’t want those few extra minutes in bed!?!
Tickets cost £5 & can be purchased here.
