It's a lovely summers morning filled with much anticipation as myself and Leana from Hipstyler, Pretty and Ginger head out to attend an event hosted by SHIMMER FASHION ACCESSORIES  in Claremont at The Bentley Bar.

I have been appointed to the 'GPS position' by Leana and we set off on our merry little way, winding our away across suburbs and heading directly towards Claremont. Arriving at the venue we are ever so happy to see that we were the first arrivals,having thought that we might be late ...but all worries were in vain.

First we are welcomed by the lovely Nadene ( operations manager and owner of SHIMMER ) with a fabulous Mimosa cocktail and escorted inside the restaurant towards two lovely ladies waiting to paint our nails and embellish our new manicures with the signature butterfly that is the logo of SHIMMER FASHION ACCESSORIES.

Next we spotted the photo booth ...oooh such fun!
With my freshly painted manicure in a gorgeous olive green with pink accent nail and gold butterfly , I head off to the display f the most gorgeous jewellery and accessories ... And I rocked to fall head over heels in love with a necklace and earring set , silver and beautiful crystals make these feather designs a 'lust have' in my eyes.

There are the most beautiful pieces on display , gorgeous crystal 'bow' shaped rings , pastel gem necklaces , drop earrings in every style and colour imaginable ....oooh the mind boggles.

Here have a look at some of what SHIMMER have to offer on their current range called EMBRACE 2014.
We later had a short address by Nadene (whom I just want to mention is the friendliest and most endearing woman) and then a fun competition and may I just mention that with the lovely prizes I am surprised there were no injuries , women can get sure competitive after all.
We had the lovely Maxi and Jess sitting at our table and they are such super ladies we soo became friends in a flash. Let's not forget the mischievous Leana from Hipstyler, Pretty & Ginger or Alice from Lipgloss is my drug who kept me super entertained with the handbag challenge.

It was at this point that we realized the amazing goodies which we received in our gift and a few happy squeals could be heard from all around ... Including me with my kitty scarf ( yes I am a #crazycatlady).
We were spoilt rotten at THE BENTLEY OYSTER BAR & BISTRO with a 4 course meal which left us all rather lazy and busting at the seams ...sheesh! What a yummy way to start the day, now all we neede were some loungers and you would have seriously heard some zzzzzzzz's.

THE BENTLEY BAR is super chic in a vintage retro kind of way, with gorgeous floor to ceiling prints on the wall, fabulous vintage furniture which has been redone and glamified. There is loads of grey , refined elegance and crystal ... Very zhooosh! It is after all an Oyster and Cocktails Bar.
All in all it was a wonderful morning filled with lovely people and the most gorgeous costume jewellery at super affordable prices. This season's collection is called EMBRACE 2014
