Competition day at Beales

Hello everyone! So a couple days ago we were lucky enough to spend literally the whole day at our local Beales store in Yeovil, as VIP guests. (Well thats how we were treated..) Back in June a fashion
event took place with a catwalk show and a huge raffle at the end.
Most of the shops in Yeovil arranged outfits for the evening and they all looked amazing! It was great to see the town come together in the name of fashion!
At the end of the evening there was a special prize for the best dressed person at the event, judged by secret judges. Anddddd we're still so happy to say that.. Lucy won!

The prize that Lucy received for being the best dressed was unbelievable! We arrived at Beales for 10am and were taken to the Personal Shopping area. We were greeted by the oh so lovely Heather and she cracked open the Bucks Fizz and Chocolates whilst she showed us the rail of outfits she had picked out to try on.
There was a lovely range of clothing picked from Miss Selfridge, Apricot, Oasis and also some shoes. So after spending the next 2 and a half hours trying everything on whilst Heather was dashing off to get different sizes and more items, we'd created a little collection of items we both wanted to buy. During our personal shopping experience, a photographer from the Western Gazette arrived and we had a few photos with the Beales manager, Andrew Oakley and Heather. Keep an eye out for the newspaper and online incase they decide to post them!

After we'd picked our items, Lucy was treated to a cut and blow dry followed by having her hair curled. It looked great and it smelt amazing! Katy was treated to having a manicure and we just LOVE the nail polish colour! It's a pearly silvery colour which would compliment all skin tones. We loved our time in the salon, the girls were super friendly and we'd recommend anyone in the Yeovil area to book in with Amy for hair and Saffron for beauty!

Then there was lunch. We were so excited (us Haines girls just lurrrve our food). The catering manager Michelle was so lovely and kept coming with food and drink! We were allowed to choose anything off the menu including drinks, mains and desserts.. how amazing is that? We both chose the chicken, stuffing and cranberry baguette with side salad and chips. We can't even begin to put into words how tasty it was. We sat next to the window so we could people watch (Beales cafe is a great  hotspot for people watching, for all you fellow people watching-lovers out there!). We ate until we were stuffed, chatted to Michelle throughout and were constantly saying "how lucky are we?" "this has been such a great day"! 

To finish the day off we had our makeup done at the Estee Lauder counter. Our lovely makeup artist Olivia created different looks that she thought would suit our eye colour and skin tone. She was really informative about ways of looking after your skin and we both absolutely loved our makeup! 

And if that wasn't enough, Lucy won a £250 voucher to spend anywhere in Beales and we sure made the most of it! We purchased makeup, perfumes and clothing and still left the shop with some money left on it.
We can't thank Beales enough for such a lovely day. We were made to feel really special - like princesses! It's a day we'll never forget and we loved every second.

Of course, we just have to show you what outfit won the prize!
