The Handbag Clinic at Aveika, Newcastle, with Scarlett Moffatt...

Hello lovelies!

A couple of Thursdays ago, I attended an event at Aveika in Newcastle which saw one lucky lady leave with a Mulberry handbag, all thanks to the lovely people at 'The Handbag Clinic' in Newcastle (read my previous post about the competition here).  THC teamed up with Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt and Capital Radio to offer the unique prize which saw a fair few handbag lovers flock to Aveika to see if they were the chosen one!

 We were greeted by The Handbag Clinic's specially made Birkin!

Having not been to Aveika before, I have to say that I was really impressed with its interior, such an amazing venue for an event of this calibre.  VIP's, e.g. the competition finalists, were given the red carpet treatment upstairs where there was a DJ on hand to entertain as they indulged in free food and rubbed shoulders with Scarlett Moffatt and the rest of the Capital team.

I took my lovely niece Rachel with me, and we grabbed a drink and settled ourselves downstairs at the end of the runway for the best view of the handbags.  That's right, not only was there a great competition taking place, but The Handbag Clinic had also organised a runway show for guests in order to show off their latest collection of handbags on sale at their boutique on Mosley Street.  I love a good runway show and am always lusting after a new handbag so it was a win win!

And the winner is...? To the bit you've been waiting for, the evening's winner was none other than Lisa Guthrie, fellow blogger and star of Made in Tyne and Wear's 'Chatty Lasses'.  She guessed the closest retail price of three handbags and the resale price offered by The Handbag Clinic.  Well done Lisa!

Thanks to The Handbag Clinic and Recognition PR for inviting me along to review the event and for the PR images (starred).  You can visit The Handbag Clinic online here for all of your handbag TLC needs.  Also, next time you're in Newcastle, make sure you check out Aveika, for a cocktail or some fine Japanese cuisine.
