No.1’s Summer Party in Edinburgh

edinburgh summer party

We enjoyed a day of fun, fizz and stylish outfits in Edinburgh!

Thank you to everyone to who came along to our first EVER reader Summer Party on Sunday 23rd June in the stylish DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Edinburgh City Centre.

Hosted by the lovely Josie Smith and held in the hotel’s fabulous Penthouse, guests were able to snap some selfies with our stunning decorations, provided by the team at I&A Events. They were also treated to a luxurious drinks reception where they could pimp their fizz at our Popaball stand!

And once our readers were snapped by No.1‘s photographer, they each received an amazing goody bag with incredible products from brands including Benefit Cosmetics, Barry M, Eylure, Elegant Touch, Eye Majic and Beauty Kitchen.

Our glamorous guests were also able to get their hands on a whole host of prizes on the day, including Jo Loves perfume, La Mer products, Bare Minerals goodies and the the chance of winning an overnight stay at the amazing Stobo Castle! 

And, of course, no Summer Party would be complete without a Best Dressed and Best Headwear competition! We’d like to say a massive congratulations to winners of both categories, and also thank you to our incredible sponsors Marks & Spencer (sponsor of Best Dressed category) and ROX jewellery (sponsor of Best Headwear) who provided stunning prizes for this competition.

After a few rounds of No.1 party games and an entertaining quiz, some ladies took to the dancefloor to show us their best moves!

Remember to keep your eyes peeled for your picture which could appear in our Events pages…
