The Sweet Shop Event

Today I was kindly invited to the The Sweet Shop breakfast event at Manchester Trafford Centre. Although it was a struggle getting out of bed at the early hours of this morning, it was definitely worth the travelling.

The sweet shop invited a handful of bloggers to look around their new store, sample a few of Manchester's culinary delights and provide exposure for the various wonderful stores showcased in the Trafford centre. In attendance was a few girls from Lush giving us demonstrations of their products, two of The Perfume Shop girls talking about their Christmas stock and of course, the beautiful hostesses Georgina and Paula who organised the event.

To start the event off, the bloggers were treated to yummy strawberry shakes from the Boost shake bar that resides in the Trafford centre and various pastries for breakfast since we all arrived at 8am in the morning. 

After we sampled some of the sweet breakfast treats, we then gathered around the hosts to learn more about The Sweet Shop business. The Sweet Shop has been running for 2 years and started out at a stall in the Great Hall at Manchester Trafford centre. Following the success of the stall,  a shop was opened in the Trafford centre in March followed by a Kiosk in Cheshire Oaks this June. The Sweet Shop are currently in partnership with Event City and Smart Hospitality, providing pop up sweet shops for corporate events, parties and exhibitions. If you don't have access to a branch near you, you can always shop online at, where they deliver traditional, retro and American candy all across the UK. If you have a sweet tooth like me, you can treat yourself using my exclusive blogger offer, where if you quote the code "Bloggers10" you will be able to receive a 10% discount online - perfect for stocking fillers and Christmas presents.

The next stage of the event was to mingle with the brands and learn more about what the Trafford Centre and The Sweet Shop had to offer. When I first caught sight of the Lush samples, I knew I had to head straight over to these girls. The Lush reps were demonstrating the new Lush Rose Jam shower gel and their massage bars. The Rose Jam shower gel reminds me of Christmas time and smells delicious, whilst the Lush massage bars are probably one of my favourite Lush products.

The Perfume Shop and Win Naturally both had goodie bags for us to take away and talked to us about their products and why we should visit their Manchester stores. If you're like me and haven't heard of Win Naturally before today, they are a health food store in the Trafford Centre and supply a variety of products for those who are health conscious and like to stay fit. In our goodie bags we had samples of Whey Protein, yummy protein bars and really healthy snacks like chilli nuts and all natural gummy sweets. The Perfume Shop gave us samples of a variety perfumes currently on sale in store. 

Finally we were treated to some samples of Shu Uemura's award winning cleansing oil to try out and a few skin care sachets. I will be reviewing these in a post soon - so keep an eye out.

Other brands that contributed to the Bloggers morning was Regis hair salon that gave us an exclusive bloggers discount and Carluccio's Italian restaurant. Unfortunately due to time limitations I was unable to pop by these stores, however I'd definitely recommend a visit if you're in the area.

As if we haven't been given enough, just before we left we were given a cupcake by the Manchester bakers Zara Cakes to take home with us. This has to be one of the best cupcakes I've ever had and I'm not overly fond of cake. I loved The Sweet Shop logo on the top and the icing felt like it melted away in your mouth. I could have eaten a whole box of them so it's a good job I was only given one.

I would like to thank The Sweet Shop for the invite and the chance to share all these lovely companies with you all. Remember to use your "bloggers10' discount - it will come in handy for Christmas.
