Event Recap: Shoppers Drug Mart 2017 Holiday Preview*

I know it feels like we barely had a summer this year with all the rain we got, however it is September and well, you guess it it's fall (my favorite season)! Last week I had the opportunity to be invited to the Shoppers Drug Mart 2017 Holiday Preview Event and had the chance to meet up with my fellow beauty blogger gal pals for a few hours of good eats, laughter and fun! 

I had a wonderful time looking at all of the beautiful upcoming launches in make-up, beauty and entertainment and it was such a gorgeous event, that I decided I had to take some pictures and share it with my wonderful readers:)

Shoppers Drug Mart is not just a "drugstore" anymore - they carry items that cater to your lifestyle and also they sell some basic food and drink items as well. Think of it as your one-stop-shop! You can purchase beauty items from low to high end too!

Looking at how all of these tables are decorated just gives me so much inspiration to one day be able to do the same for my guests! ...... I just need to work on that determination first........ haha maybe when I start a family? Mmm... giant Ferrero Rocher's.. so delicious!

In my MANY years of shopping at Shoppers Drug Mart, the one thing I have to recommend all of you to purchase, is the Sampler packs - they have them available for perfumes and mascaras for example. You can see it in the picture below. You essentially pay the price of a regular priced item - so let's say $35 for the mascara sampler box, and it contains a variety of sample sized mascaras - approx 8 or so, and after you try out the sample sized items and find the one you like, you take the coupon within the box, and redeem it for a full-sized mascara of your choice from the ones you have tested below. I love that concept!! It just allows you the chance to try out many different mascaras that you might not have wanted to before, because you couldn't get your hands on it or decided to take the plunge and buy all these different full sized regular priced items that you may end up not liking, which means you wasted your money.

We were all surprised with customized bottles of perfume engraved with our names (picture below) ~ I felt so special as I have never had an engraved item before :) So we all looked through the beautiful display of perfumes and found our own very special bottle. Such a special gesture!


In addition to the engraved perfume bottles, we were all gifted swag bags filled to the brim with delicious chocolates, candies, make-up, skincare and electronics! 

I hope you enjoyed this quick little event re-cap post and be sure to head on over to a Shoppers Drug Mart near you to do some of your holiday shopping this year!! (either for yourself or your loved ones!) I know for sure I'll be picking up those sample packs!

Until next time, XO - M.
