Last weekend I was invited to attend the Berry’s and Grey Platinum Loyalty Card launch event at their store in Norwich’s Royal Arcade. To be invited to any event is really so lovely, and if you follow me on instagram you will see I visit the shop one like every visit to Norwich, I just love browsing and photographing the beautiful store. I also have many pieces from there in my room. Nicole and all the girls put on a really fun event, there were nibbles and drinks on arrival, with cute mini bottles of proseco and lemonade with fresh fruit (which I opted for being t-total). I also eyed up the indulgent cupcakes and fruit kebabs.
It was so nice to get to have the whole shop to ourselves and really have a good nosey at all of the new products they have recently put into place. My fave new corner is upstairs, its kinda tropical themed with palms and a hammock, a really different use of space that I’ve never seen before. The store itself is not huge, but everything fits in so perfectly and leaves plenty of free space. Clever interior design choices indeed.
Being able to meet other local bloggers was really lovely too, and also getting to meet some of the ‘bigger’ bloggers like Leanne and Lydia was nice too, the fact that Leanne remembered me from a past event was so lovely. Making new connection in the blogging world/creative industry is something I love. Just meeting like-minded people who share some of the same passions as you is fab.
The girls at Berry’s and Grey also put together the most generous gift bags, with carefully chosen items from the store for each of us, as well as a bag of old school pic n mix and of course the platinum loyalty card. I’d recently enquired about a print with them via snapchat, thinking nothing more of it other than that I was gonna purchase it at the event, it was intact in my gift bag. A beautiful framed rose gold font print on a marble background. ‘EAT SLEEP BLOG REPEAT’. Something I just love and now have next to my computer as a constant inspiration.
I still can’t believe that I was able to attend this event. It literally gave me such a confidence boost, I don’t know about any of you but I’m not really the most forward of people when it comes to things like this but I thought to myself just do it!! I took the plunge and got chatting to the lovely Laura and Shelley while having a look upstairs and a little later got chatting to the beaut Fiona who is so enthusiastic about anything creative it was so lovely to chat to her.
If you live in Norwich or Polzeath for that matter then I suggest making your way to Berry’s and Grey and treat yourself, a friend, your home to something pronto.
Thanks again to Nicole and the girls for the invite and putting on such a lovely event and my very lovely gift. Can’t wait to use my new loyalty card when I’m next in store.
