The Almost Lush Halloween and Christmas Blogger Event

Almost two weeks ago marked the launch of the always anticipated Lush Halloween and Christmas offerings. With my face on and the excitement levels high, off I went to the South East Bloggers Circle Event however we were sadly met with the fact that the event at Lush in Basingstoke was cancelled due to a store flood.
