For the past 50 years, Boots has played a big part in the lives of many – from the firsts to the dependables. It is where I bought my first eye shadow, experimented with lipstick, pondered the many options for making my hair thicker and also where I bought most of my little boys baby clothes!. But ultimately where I frequently go to pick up the essentials…and then leave with a bag full of other goodies!
And as a bargain hunter, resisting the 3 for 2, the free treats when you spend a certain amount, but mostly the Advantage Card points, it has always been my go to location.
So when I was invited along to celebrate Boots 50 years in Northern Ireland, I of course couldn’t wait to see the new treats on offer.
In the Penthouse Suite of the Europa hotel, the floor was set up like any Boots store you would see on the high street. A range of counters with an array of products just waiting to be tested! As Boots advertising says, ‘More ways to feel good’!
I was heading on for a night out after the celebration so my make up was already just as I wanted it but I will never argue with someone willing to transform my hair! A little back combing, a little bit of Bumble and Bumble, and voilà!
My outfit for the event/evening ahead…
With tips on how to recreate various looks, a bag full of products to make the look happen and an open invitation to visit any counter in store for a little bit of assistance, I think Boots will remain my go to for the next 50 years to come!
Thank-you Boots for making us all feel good…and thank you Jane at JComms for the invite!
