Relive the weekend: An interview on the Urban Retreat Beautique

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 14 - 2012

This weekend, I had the pleasure of being interviewed for The Urban Retreat Beautique’s We ❤ Sundays feature.  A weekly installment that offers up a dose of informal chit-chat with beauty contributors from around the globe.

If the alternative is doing some proper work on a Tuesday morning, I invite you to click through to discover some useless knowledge about me such as: what’s in my handbag, the last three things I whacked on my debit card and even my favourite day of the week.  If the alternative is making love to a hot, hot man (it is Valentine’s Day afterall), you’re forgiven… move along.  Just click and read later yeah?

Grand bisous xx

If you’ve been around long enough to remember their Easter egg-stravaganza then you’ll already be familiar with the kind of fun and games Urban Retreat’s Beautique love to engage their customers in!

If not, let me give you a little bit of inside knowledge to one of the best treasure hunts around.

Log on to the Beautique website from 1pm every Friday up until Christmas and scour the pages like a mad woman (fella?) in an attempt to hunt down one of those lovely pressie boxes as shown in the image above.

Once  you’ve found one, add it to your basket and checkout as quickly as possible to claim the prize as your very own from a single penny!

A few of you lovely lot managed to scoop some goodies in the Easter treasure hunt so I hope you’ll be as successful this time round!

Good luck pressie hunters and let me know if you manage to bag yourself a prize!!

 

Deal Alert: Hold it right there lady!

Uh, I mean, don’t go anywhere until you’ve read this post ‘cos the clock is ticking and to be quite honest, I’m not sure how long you’ve got left to take advantage of this extraordinary offer from Beautique.com.

What offer?  I hear you say…

Well, how about a free O.P.I nail polish AND free UK delivery?  At the same time, all at once with no minimum spend?

If the deal takes your fancy you have until an unspecified time TODAY to claim the offer.  I know, I know… it’s my bad, I found the email in my god-damn junk folder last night didn’t I?

RUN, RUN LIKE THE WIND AND BUY SOMETHING.  Um.  Only if  you want to of course… don’t be waving your credit card bill at me like that!

Haven’t got a clue what I’m on about?  Well… listen to what they have to say about themselves (they’ll be far more eloquent than me).

Beautique.com is the sister site to Urban Retreat which is a beauty treatment paradise located in Harrods, London and Harvey Nichols, Manchester.
