As I'm sure you've seen from my Tweets and Instagram photos, I spent two days in Stockholm this week. We were there to celebrate REN's 15th Anniversary (more on that in a minute) and our little UK group was hosted by ASOS. More well known for the fashion side of things I think people forget about ASOS' beauty section that offers products like REN as well as many others. Ahead of the trip I planned for cold weather and this high neck swing dress really kept me cosy. I layered it over leggings, added some boots and threw my coat on top. I really like the fit, the tight three quarter length arms are very flattering.
So REN is 15 years old! The event was hosted in Stockholm not because it's where their from (I just assumed it was!) but because the clean brand ethos really ties in with the Swedish way. Did you know that REN actually means 'clean' in Swedish? Amazing. As well as celebrating their birthday they also have a new product launching next year that I personally think might get added to their bestseller list. It's their Instant Firming Beauty Shot which is like a thick serum that instantly tightens the skin leaving it soft and plump. I can't wait to try it out properly but at the moment the back of my left hand is looking great!
You may have seen in my last vlog that Rich and I went to a restaurant called Food For Friends in Brighton last weekend. I've been there before around 8 years ago for my sister's hen night. It's a vegetarian restaurant and even though neither of us are vegetarian we still really enjoyed it. Despite my chilli incident, the food was great and the atmosphere was nice. I wouldn't say it was the BEST meal I've had but if you're looking for somewhere nice to go for dinner in Brighton, it would be up there on my list of places I've tried and enjoyed.
Have a great weekend!
