Pop!

You might have noticed I've been a bit MIA, well I've been in London since Wednesday. Toni and I had a few meetings for Plus North and spent sometime catching up with friends, and like the excellent blogger that I am *ahem* I totally forgot to take any photographs. The fact of the matter was I was too busy having fun! 

I did how ever manage to get some snaps of what we got up to on our first night there, the very clever folk at Tesco have set up a F+F pop up shop in the lovely Covent Garden. We'd arranged to meet Rivkie from SLiNK Magazine there, where she gave me a sneak preview of issue 6, it's looking AMAZING! 

Anyway I digress. So we headed into the shop, as with all the outlets in Covent Garden it was small but perfectly formed, bright and airy the shop showcased some key pieces from the current S/S line giving customers a chance to touch and feel for themselves.

Just some of the gorgeous clothes available online at the moment
I really enjoyed how technology was used to give the event a real interactive feeling. Along with iPad's dotted around the store enabling you to order there and then, there were posters up that utilised augmented reality (I won't even pretend to understand what that's about!!) and all the products were labelled with QR codes so you could scan the products you liked. You could also try on items before you bought them by picking up one of the item cards from the garment you liked, taking it down to the changing area where a helpful assistant would get the item in your size!


As well as all the lovely F+F products, The Vintage Cosmetic Company where on hand to give your eyes a splash of glam with their beautiful false eyelashes. They also offer other fabulous vintage inspired cosmetic accessories like cute rose patterned tweezers and brushes. You can follow them on twitter @thevintagecosco or for more info email them on thegirls@thevintagecosmeticcompany.co.uk

Here's Toni getting the star treatment and just some of the gorgeous range of accessories on offer.
You might have noticed that some of my pictures are a little squiffy, safe to say I had guzzled a little too much champagne, but we had an absolute blast! 

The shop is open until the end of today, if you're in the locality do pop in, its really good fun!!
