I have now been to my first Regent Tweet. What an event it was!
26 stores took part, each offering free gifts, experiences or prize draws. QR codes were available at each store to allow you to “check in”.
The best gifts were limited to a certain number of tweeters. Jaegar were offering a £50 gift voucher to spend in their store (which I wasn’t quick enough to get), Ugg Australia were offering free flip-flops (I got them but not in my size, still my mother-in-law will be happy!) and Godiva chocolate were giving away a gift set of two boxes of chocolates (I headed straight there to make sure I got those).
Then many stores were offering free gift bags, which all turned out to be amazing: three types of hand cream from Crabtree and Evelyn, a Liberty print frog, Yuzu shower gel from Molton Brown, a T-shirt in a tin from Superdry, an airform vest top from Uniqlo, cufflinks from Hawes and Curtis, a notebook from Sebago, a keyring from Guess, a tote bag from Tommy Hilfiger, a Moroccan bath set from REN skincare, loads of food and health items from the Wholefood Market and nail varnish from The Organic Pharmacy.
And finally, there were events throughout the day – cupcake making, cocktail making, tapas and a grand finale at the Swarovski crystallised lounge. I was absolutely shattered by the end but I’ve had an amazing day and I will definitely go back next year!
I’m very excited this year to be invited to participate in Regent Tweet.
The Regent Tweet website describes the event as follows.
“Regent Tweet is an experiential shopping and lifestyle event for women that engages Regent Street’s fashion and lifestyle shops, bars and restaurants with online influencers. The itinerary includes lectures at the Apple Store, workshops and many opportunities to receive complimentary products and experiences. The SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED™ Lounge and Concept Store will serve as the Regent Tweet Hub, where you can tweet and blog to your heart’s content and relax.”
I’m looking forward the starting the day with a free pastry at Tibits, hoping to be one of the lucky girls to get a free pair of sandals at Ugg and taking part in a cupcake masterclass at Whole Foods.
