So as some of you may know, I was so kindly invited back to Sam McCauleys pharmacy to celebrate their birthday in the Fairgreen shopping centre Carlow on the 19th of September to capture the event and share it with you all! Let me tell you, what a day it was!
During this post I am going to tell you all about the event and what went on throughout the day.
I met so many fabulous followers who popped in to say hello along with spending the day with amazing people and fabulous brands.
As always, Sam McCauleys pharmacy in the Fairgreen shopping centre Carlow know quite well how to host an event, but this one in particular blew me away! I wrote a pre-blog post on what was going to happen throughout the day for those who wanted a little taster of what they would be in for at the event, and I don’t think you guys were disappointed.
I received so many snaps from the ever growing media platform that is ‘snapchat’ of those in store and of all the bits and bobs they had picked up on the day with the help of the lovely ladies on all beauty counters, perfumery, pharmacy counter and photo bar.
Beauty events –
As Sam McCauleys in Carlow is the only holder of Stila, benefit and Bare Minerals in the area, these counters had fabulous small treats in store on the day. From amazing (huge) hampers to be won, to make overs and product testings to fantastic offers on sets and single products.
On the make up stands such as Rimmel, GOSH, NYX, Maybeline, essence etc, there were two fab make-up artists on hand, Roisin Hayden and Triona Brennen to help with anyone who needed guidance in the make up department or help with products.
Roisin has been doing make up for over a year now and has amazing skills, and Triona is perfecting her skills at LA make up academy in Dublin. Be sure to check out their work over on Facebook.
The make-up stand also had a fab offer on the day where if you spent €15 on any products, so you could mix and match, you would then have the chance of putting your hand in the lucky dip which meant you got a free product of your choice.
The perfumery –
The perfumery had an absolutely amazing hamper up for grabs on the day of the event along with a brilliant offer which meant when you bought a perfume or spent a certain amount on a product, you got to choose a perfume for free! How amazing is that?!
The guys at the photo bar were showcasing some fab new products along with some amazing offers on electronic pieces. One of the main pieces which I was intrigued by was the smart watches. These watches do almost everything including fitness, calorie counting, answering your phone and texts to tracking your steps.
The fabulous Aoife was available on the day to talk all things nails and hair. Aoife was showing how to achieve gorgeous shiny nails in just seconds with the amazing device that is the Micro Nail, along with hair products from Viviscal – which are worth a look at as I have just started using the Viviscal conditioner which contains all natural ingredients as I suffer from a very dry scalp and this is working wonders on my hair!
Vichy and La Roche-Posay
This had to be one of my favourites on the day! I met with award winning in-store skin expert, Carolann O’Callaghan to talk all things skin, and had my skin analysis done with her.
Carolann is now in the October issue of IMAGE magazine which is an absolutely outstanding achievement.
Overall it was such a fun day! I really hope all of you that popped in on the day had a really good time, because I know I did! Don’t forget to drop by and check out this amazing store as it has numerous brands to offer along with an amazing beauty salon, photo bar and specialists in the pharmaceutical area.
