Bristol is Looking Good Feeling Better

Harvey Nichols provided an evening of luxury for the women of Bristol to raise funds for the ‘Look Good Feel Better’ charity

Trying to encourage anyone off their cosy sofas and out of their snuggies is almost an impossible task when November strikes.

However, on Wednesday night Harvey Nichols succeeded in attracting limo-loads of the beauty elite to their ‘Look Good Feel Better’ event.

Harvey Nichols Bristol created the perfect after-work beauty paradise for women who just needed a little pampering. Enticing customers in with free champagne on the door and offering much appreciated free beauty treatments, the first floor of the store was filled with adults acting like over excitable big kids in a candy store.

Speaking of which, sweet treats were also on offer in the form of miniature cupcakes served, of course, on silver platters.

Many of the in-store brands took the opportunity to reward their customers with heavy discounts and special offers. VIP ticket holders were able to get exclusive one on one consultations.

Unsurprisingly with such amazing offers and competitions (not forgetting the free champagne) the event was packed and beauticians had their hands full as spare appointments were as scarce as gold dust.

Nails Inc. were on hand to polish up tired nails

Whether it was giving advice on cold snap skin care or offering 20% off a chocolate body wax the event had all of your beauty queries covered, though the main question was perhaps, ‘what do we get in the goodie bags?’

Harvey Nichols did not disappoint, with one girl telling me; ‘best goodie bag I’ve ever had, hands down.’

The bag included £20 worth of Nails Inc. products as well as Elemis, Shu Uemura, Hermes, Tom Ford and Rodial samples, with no dodgy oversized t-shirts in sight! I’m not sure why we doubted them; this is, after all, Quakers Friars.

Look Good Feel Better

The proceeds of the ticket sales went towards the ‘Look Good Feel Better’ charity giving beauty junkies the much needed element of guilt-free shopping. Set up in 1993 by the CTPA (Cosmetic Toiletry & Perfumery Association), the charity aims to combat the visible side effects of Cancer and in the process boost the self-confidence of women whose lives have been affected by the disease.

By the end of the evening the whole of Quakers Friars was filled with slightly more beautiful, slightly tipsier ladies who most definitely looked good and felt amazing.
