Straight after Halloween, out comes all the Christmas lights! It’s crazy how we’re celebrating the lead up to Christmas in November, it’s so early! But hey, if we’re extending the Christmas festivities an extra month then I’m not complaining. I recently went down to London Shoreditch to attend an event hosted by The Body Shop, which was their Enchanted Forest Christmas Event! When I heard that it was an enchanted forest, I just had to go. Who doesn’t want to feel like you just entered a mystical fairy tale?
This event was hosted to support their partner charity, the Woodland Trust, to fund for the protection and re-wilding of trees and preventing the loss of habitats for endangered species, which is something that I fully support. All the money raised from this event would be donated to the charity.
They introduced us to their latest Christmas products – the body creams were my fav, and their advent calendars looked amazing too! You can check out their Christmas collection here.
They also had some fun activities for us to do:
We had to wear a virtual reality headset in which we were taken into a virtual forest and were given an introduction to deforestation, the damages it causes to the environment and wildlife, and what the Woodland Trust do to prevent this.
There were some good photo opportunities, such as The Body Shop swing (which was very popular as you can imagine), some tree-hugging snapshots and a photo booth.
Pampering Sessions & Shopping:
There were massages and makeover sessions, free coffee, candle-lit yoga, Pilates classes and a Xmas market where we could shop their Xmas collection at 25% off. They also had some wellness and skincare talks too.
Overall it was a great wellness event to support an amazing cause. Thank you to The Body Shop for having me and creating this amazing enchanted forest experience!
