Oxfam International Womans Day Event

Last Thursday we were thrilled to attend an event put together by the lovely Kirsty and Oxfam to mark and celebrate International Women’s Day!  We were warmly welcomed with a woman’s day related quiz (which admittedly we found quite tricky) and treated ourselves to a cocktail or two, Strawberry Gin Mojitos to be exact!

Much mingling and chatter was enjoyed then it was time to have a little talk from a representative from Oxfam who explained the importance and relevance of woman’s day and how our evening would really help to make a difference. It felt great to be contributing to what is such a good cause.

Then (after much anticipation) the beautiful bake sale opened and we helped ourselves to what could only be describes as little works of art! We felt so guilty tucking into them, but they were so so tasty.

We enjoyed more cocktails and some thrilling beauty chatter with fellow bloggers Karris, Gill and Lauren and smart cookie Gill won the quiz, well done! It was time for, in my opinion, the most exciting part of the night, the raffle! This was no ordinary raffle though, these prices were AMAZING! From BM Beauty Make-up kits to Spa Vouchers to Schu Vouchers there really was some amazing prices to be won and we felt very lucky to be in with a chance of winning them. Unfortunately it wasn’t our lucky night, but hey it’s the taking part that counts! Well done again to Gill who won a makeover master-class at The Make-up Academy- we are very jealous of this prize!

There was so much going on it was hard to keep up, from the clothes swaps to manicures and far too many cupcakes we had an amazing night, for an amazing cause.

We felt so privileged to have been invited and to have shown our support, this was a wonderful night! What did you ladies get up to for International Women’s Day?
