Galentine's Bubbles, Brunch and Beauty with Intu Victoria Centre | AD

On Sunday I was invited for an incredible brunch by the amazing ladies at Intu Victoria Centre, all in the name of Galentine's! We met at the new, and beautiful, prosecco bar, Caffe Rizzoli.

Caffe Rizzoli is located on the first floor of the Intu Victoria centre, its' chic and elegant design is stand out all in itself, but the cake and ice cream cases are enough to draw in even the most determined shopper!

I joined our table and perused the menu, despite it only being 11am, I opted for a Peach Bellini because it was Sunday and why not! The fizz of the prosecco and the zing of the peach puree was a match made in heaven. Bubbles ordered, it was time for the food, we were told that we could order whatever we wanted, and we were utterly spoilt for choice! It was a tough decision, but I decided that I was going to stick to the breakfast theme and opt for the granola.

The service was perfect, the team at Caffe Rizzoli made you feel very welcome and relaxed, especially the owner Jeremy. The presentation was also impeccable, everyone's food looked amazing. I loved the glass dish and fruit arrangement on my granola. The attention to detail didn't go unnoticed.

The granola was tasty and crunchy, which contrasted beautifully with the thick, creamy yogurt on top. I can honestly say it went down a treat! We were told we could also have a dessert, but having had my fill of food already I decided I should perhaps forgo more food! Though admittedly, I was insanely tempted after seeing what some of my other blogging girls had ordered! Instead I treated myself to another cheeky cocktail by the name of Country Breeze.

[AD] After munching our way through Caffe Rizzoli's menu we headed over to House of Fraser for make-overs. On arrival we were greeted with more champagne, we were very spoilt! We were then given the opportunity to have a look around the beauty counters. I headed over to Clarin's, Urban Decay and Bobbi Brown.

For my make-over, I had chosen Bobbi Brown as I've never tried any of their products before, so I was keen to see what they were like. The make-up artist was incredible, I told her to do what she liked as I already had a lot of make-up on. She touched up my existing make-up, added some highlight and gave me a pretty, muted, lip colour using the lip liner 'Pink Mauve'. I was really pleased with how it looked. It was nice to relax and enjoy being pampered.

Even though we had already been extremely spoilt with lavish food, drinks and beauty treatments the pampering didn't stop there! We were given some amazing gift bags and a stunning present from Skinny Dip in the form of a super sparkly iridescent purse, which was such a thoughtful surprise.  Skinny Dip actually have a counter in the Intu Victoria Centre!

We received two gift bags which contained some incredible samples to try out. I've already begun using Clarin's multi-active jour cream, and so far I'm really impressed with it. I'm looking forward to working my way through these generous samples, and will definitely give you my thoughts on them soon!

I would like to thank Intu Victoria Centre, Caffe Rizzoli and House of Fraser for their generosity and for putting together this amazing Galentine's event. It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday and I'm so grateful for being invited.

When your next in the Intu Victoria Centre I would highly recommend stopping for a drink or a bite to eat at Caffe Rizzoli, I will definitely be taking my husband on our next shopping trip!

What did you get up to this Galentine's?
