a cake push pop....who knew such a thing existed?

Pout Edinburgh is an annual womens' lifestyle event held at the Corn Exchange featuring exhibitors from the world of beauty, fashion and more.  The best way to describe it is that it's like a wedding fair, although instead of florists, dressmakers and reception venues there are stands presenting cocktails, makeup, cupcakes, clothes, handbags, skincare etc.  

Last week I headed along to a preview with Kirsty, Jade and Laura and we got a sneak peek of some of the brands who are going to be presenting this year including Cake-Cetera who had amazing cake pops for us to sample, shopping app Mallzee, Edinburgh based jewellery designers Lily-Mo, Darcey's with their gorgeous smelling soy candles (the strawberry and cream was to die for), landscape garden designer Mandy Bailey who had a "grow your own cocktail in a box" kit which we were all intrigued by, and a few others including our friends from Appointedd.

We were also excited to find out that Carol Smillie was there to talk about period pants on behalf of her new brand Diary Doll (yeah I know you're probably thinking "eh?!") - we were even invited to come and have a feel of her pants later....

The actual Pout event takes place later this month, on the 21st and 22nd of September.  Tickets are £15 if you book in advance, and £20 on the door.  Unfortunately I'll be on holiday in Berlin then so can't make it along this time, but I'll definitely try to go next year as it sounds like the ultimate girly day out!


You can view a full album of the photos I took that evening on my blogs' Facebook page.
