House of Fraser Christmas in July
So i know we are no longer in July, however I went to the House of Fraser Christmas Press Day a few weeks ago to check out the forthcoming collections and there were lots of pretty things that deserved to be shown. I didn't go to as many Christmas Press Days as I had hoped, but so many did them on the same day and working them around work is difficult, however House of Fraser was a gooden and I am glad I got to attend. I didn't really realise how much stuff the department store stocked, I know that may seem like a silly statement but HOF isn't somewhere I go often, so it was really eye opening to see the diversity in stock, and all the exclusive products they stock at Christmas time. I swooned over many Michael Kors bags, Lulu Guinness purses and beauty treats from the likes of Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier and Penhaligon's. There is also an exclusive fashion line launching from Essex girl Millie Mackintosh which looks pretty impressive I must say. While I was there I was also introduced to a new fragrance brand (to the UK anyway) called Valeur Absolue, which offers some stunning fragrances which not only look amazing, but smell great too. There were three scents which I found very grown up for me - since I usually go for the fresh, fruity and floral perfumes - however I really loved them. The bottles were filled with sweet little touches like mother of pearls, diamonds and amethyst stones, so they would look super pretty on a dressing table. HOF has really gone all out on offering interesting gifts for Christmas which would put a smile on many people's faces.
