Harry Gordon Selfridge said 'there's no fun like work'. We say 'there's no fun like shopping. And lo, the two shall meet, starting today with the kick off of Selfridges 'Work it!' campaign, which sees six weeks of activity based around reclaiming a better work/life balance for the time poor among us.
How? From 30th April every thursday for six weeks between 12-3pm the store will be on hand to reclaim your lunch break, give you very quick fixes to fit into your short break form the desk, and generally improve your day.
There will be lunchtime beauty services based around the amount of time you have to spare, from some of our ELLE favourite brands. Our favourites include Charlotte Tilbury Iconic Eyes, a 15-minute eye transformation that you can recreate during your working day, or a Herheson's 15 minute bloiwdry for £15. Some of our other highlights are:
Armani Make Up Bag Refresh – a personal consultation to understand how you can upgrade your make up bag contents, and get your makeup brushes professionally cleaned
Kiehl's Worker's Needs Masterclasses – the team will help you manage commonplace work strains, from stressed out skin to protecting your skin on the daily commute
