Everyone knows that journos work bloomin’ hard – and nobody knows that better than me! Between the blog and my freelance commitments, it can be hard to find time for a good old-fashioned pampering session. So last Thursday, the 27th of March, we invited a hoard of gorgeous bloggers & journalists to a magical little salon called The Parlour London in Chiswick for some beautiful boho blow dries and free-flowing bubbly cocktails!
The Parlour London isn’t like other hair salons, you see. It’s been lovingly designed by owner Jackie and her brilliant eye for all things pretty. It’s also a really experience from the styles on the menu to the lovely added extras and friendly customer service.
The evening was a huge success, we met some amazing people, drank some delicious cocktails and everyone was ooh-ing and ahh-ing over each other’s pretty braids and vintage styles.
Sarah Morris Photography was on hand to capture everyone nattering, the styling by The Little Wedding Helper, crockery by VinTEAge and a special bath salts station with I Made It Myself. All of the images in this post are her wonderful work.
The guests were all treated to goody bags with delicious cookies from Nila Holden, adorable notes from Ananya Cards and the FC5 ultra-hydrating hand crème (Fresh cells technology) from Arbonne International. There were also a few little extra goodies from Darling Lovely Life and The Parlour London.
Our guests all grabbed the opportunity to sit in a stylist’s chair and get gussied up! Here’s our Darling Lovely Maddy being styled as a vintage vixen!

We also had a social media competition to win another luxurious blow dry treatment at The Parlour London – and we’re happy to announce that the winner of the social media competition is… Nova from nu bride for her gorgeous hair selfie! Congratulations Nova!
We hope the event at The Parlour London was the first of many for the Darling Lovely Life team and great practice for one day holding a reader event for all of you!
