Brighton Bloggers event: The Beauty Shed, Hove

The Beauty Shed, Hove Review

This is the perfect place to bring a small group of friends for a get together, birthday celebrations or pre-wedding pamper sesh. The Beauty Shed is a quaint little haven tucked away in Hove offering an array of relaxing spa treatments. The Brighton bloggers were invited along after my main lady Rosie from Everything's Rosie paid a visit there back in the summer. 

From the rustic charm of the décor, the smell of Green & Spring candles burning all throughout the rooms, to the handmade, delicious snacks and lunches on offer after your treatment, everything about this place makes having your nails done a relaxing, special experience.

Champagne Smoothies Fifi McGee Brighton blogger

Nikki, the owner of The Beauty Shed, welcomed us through the door with big smiles and champagne smoothies, along with her partners in crime - Bex, Sophie & Georgie, all beauticians and event helpers. We were all offered a treatment of our choice to kick off the bloggers pampering party. Tricky choice!

It comes as no surprise to anyone that's been reading this blog a while, to hear that I've never had a manicure before. I'm not the most 'pampered' girl, and should really take care of my talons a bit better (especially if I want that career in hand modelling - you know some people make millions from just holding up a lipstick to a camera? DREAM JOB) But after choosing a mini OPI manicure at The Beauty Shed, I'm hooked, and haven't stopped moisturising my hands since I've come home.

Fifi McGee's first OPI nail polish mini manicure review

There were lots of really beautiful polishes to choose, from the OPI and Essie ranges. With halloween round the corner I went for a blood orange vibrant tone, to match my deathly pale white skin. Ooooo! This bad boy is called 'Monsooner or later'. I can sense a large Christmas wishlist forming with this paying a guest appearance. The price of OPI polishes make me feel a bit nauseous so it was quite the treat having a beautician pamper me with luxurious products.

Tasty chilli con carne at The Beauty Shed Hove

Home made cakes and biscuits at the beauty shed hove

All manicuring aside, we were ushered down to the onsite café for some home made food. This tower of treats was freshly baked by Nikki herself, and that millionaire shortbread stole the show for me. I had a bowl of the tastiest, healthiest, chilli con carne washed down with my fave - camomile & lavender tea. We finished the evening admiring our nails and chatting all things blog-related before being given a jam packed goodie bag full of treats that will no doubt be featured on the blog soon. All round wonderful night, with wonderful company. I'll 100% be back for more.

Before I go. Every Tuesday & Thursday The Beauty Shed offer a special £10 deal across manicures, pedicures, eyelash tinting and eyebrow threading. I cannot recommend the place highly enough, I know what I'll be planning to do with my girls in the run up to Christmas. Thanks for a memorable pamper sesh Beauty Shed team!
