2017 was a whirlwind year in the Pamper Pages office and I think we can all agree that the year went by in a blink. We welcomed many new businesses, visited some pretty fabulous places, hit over two million visits to the site and celebrated our second birthday.
The office was in the mist of the “NEW YEAR, NEW YOU” when we reached 7,000 Instagram followers. In true January style there was no champagne to celebrate, as our office was a health-zone of green tea, salads, lunch time gym sessions and not a speck of chocolate in sight.
In February we welcomed the highly sought after makeup artist, Lisa Caldognetto.
Lisa has an extremely impressive portfolio of working with celebrities, world-renowned brands, magazine shoots and even a regular at London fashion week. Lisa now offers her services to us mere mortals for weddings and special events. If you fancy looking a million dollars, make sure you book early as Lisa is in great demand.
In March we visited one of our favourite West London hot spots, Privet. It’s always such a delight visiting the salon and its lovely team. We were introduced to EmerginC; a highly effective New York skincare brand that is 100% natural and organic. We had a relaxing bespoke facial with a lifting massage that gave unbelievable results. In true Privet style, they went the extra mile and included 20 minutes under the LED light to give the finishing touch to skin perfection.
At the start of April, we headed to Mayfair Aesthetics newly opened clinic in Moorgate and had the Raynor massage. Combining techniques from classic massages, the Raynor massage was unreal and possibly the best one we have ever had. We left the clinic with our head high, perfect posture, an inch taller and completely stress-free.
Towards the end of the month, we took a trip to Chelsea’s newest skin studio and the latest business to join us, Skin Aspirations. Here we had the DMK Enzyme Therapy Facial, which was very different to any facial we had previously had. This unique and highly recommended treatment gave instant flawless results, that continued to improve days after.
In May we continued to share special promotions on our social media pages and saw our Instagram followering double to 14,000. The Beauty Island Sanctuary in Worthing is a regular on our social media. They always have fantastic promotions and a wide range of treatments that cater to everyone’s needs.
A huge congratulations went out to The Peacock Rooms in Sevenoaks for receiving a five-star award by the Good Salon Guide. We plan on visiting the gorgeous salon this year, so keep your eyes peeled for the blog.
Summer was approaching and we headed to the beautiful Linia Skin Clinic on Harley Street. After a lengthy consultation with Dr Zokaie, he decided that the Hydra Jet Infusion Peel would be best for dehydrated skin and a rejuvenation boast. We left the clinic with flawless perfect skin and a massive injection of confidence.
July welcomed another EF Medispa clinic. Unlike their usual central London locations, this stunning clinic sits proudly in the heart of the west country, Bristol.
During the summer bank holiday, we celebrated one million visits to our site. This seemed like an impossible number to hit but we did it and extremely proud!
As Summer grinded to a halt our diary became very busy. We visited EF Medispa’s Kensington clinic for one of their newest treatments ‘Intravenous Light Therapy’. The treatment works by cleansing the blood using an IV drip and a LED light. The many benefits vary between each individual but for us the main ones were no more restless nights, a healthy glow shining through from within and bright sparkly eyes.
West London Interventional Clinic joined us and listed all four of their newly opened clinics; Twickenham, Richmond, Kew and Brentford. They offer five-star aesthetic and pain management treatments by their highly experienced Harley Street Consultant, Dr Humble. The clinic offers a free consultation and 20% off for new clients having aesthetic treatments.
We attended a symposium held by one of the UK’s leading aesthetics suppliers and distributers, Vida Aesthetics. This was an extremely insightful event were we watched live demonstrations and tested out some of the latest brands to reach the UK. We were lucky enough to take home two serums; Phytic [TC] serum and Tannic [CF] serum, both from the French skincare brand Alphascience; “innovative skin science”. The serums were mind-blowing and we started to see results within three days. Although we have just recently run out, the serums did last a very long time and we can’t recomend them enough… Believe us, you won’t be disappointed!
Within a six-week period we attended three exhibitions; The Olympia Beauty, CCR Expo and The Business show. Exhibitions are always a great opportunity to network, find out what’s hot within the industry, exclusive launches, influential speakers and most excitingly, stocking up on the goodies each show has to offer.
The year was coming to an end and we had lots to celebrate. Our Instagram following had tripled to over 22,000, we hit way over two million visits to the site and have hundreds of businesses across the country featuring on our beautiful website. Now we are in 2018 we are extremely excited for the year ahead and if 2017 is anything to go by, we know it will be another incredible year!
