Ain't No Party Like a Kewpie Party

Last week we ventured westward for the launch of Abandon Ship's Kewpie Collection. It was one of the first Glasgow blogger events we've been to and boy do they know how to do it right! It's safe to say we were spoilt rotten. Held at Blythswood Square it was an intimate gathering with delicious cocktails on arrival and lots of other trimmings. We were treated to hand and arm massages, making us feel very relaxed from the elbows down. Perfect after a day of traveling and trailing the shops and totally tempting us into booking our next spa day there.

We also got majorly beautified by Cameo Bridal Styling who made our hair all pretty at super speed. Seriously, Lana is pretty much magic, creating a towering beehive in a matter of minutes from Helen's limited hair stock. It even lasted throughout the next day. So impressed! Sacha was also on hand to tart up our nails. Adding some cute wee Kewpie decals by DIY Nails for the perfect finishing touch. Bygone Photobooth were set up to capture it all and we couldn't help but take full advantage of their suitcase full of props. It was so nice to have some fun photo strips to take away.

Anyway enough of all that, let's get down to the main reason we were there - the collection. Designed by Barbie Lowenberg of Longfox, the Kewpie collection takes these kitsch wee babies and gives them a bit of Abandon Ship edge. From pants to iPhone covers and patches to tshirts this collection has something for everyone and we love how affordable it all is, with a price range from £3 to £28! The print is adorable and we spent rather a long time picking out our favourite chubsters (Taco baby for Helen and trumping baby for Kimberley). The collection is available online and in the Glasgow store now. The highwaisted pants and pencil skirt are right up there on our wishlists.

As well as all the fun of oohing and ahhing over the collection, we also had the pleasure of catching up with our favourite gal pals and meeting some familiar Glasgow faces such as Glasgow Fashion Girl, Lynnie-Bop and Little Blog of Horrors. It really was a fabulous evening and we can't wait to head back to the west side for more fun soon.
