Marbella with Mark Hill (and win a trip to Paris!)

Remember that time when I entered a competition to go to Marbella with Mark Hill? Well, the secrets out - home girl over here only went and won the bloody thing! So for any of you that followed me on Instagram (@cocochicblog FYI) last weekend, you'll already know the ins and outs of what I got up to in Marbs, but for those of you that don''s a little photo diary of what we got up to in the three days we were there. And yeah, before you ask, I'm still pale as hell. 

So during my three days of experiencing Marbella I experienced a bunch of emotions. I went two full days without really sleeping (sleepy Steph), ate my weight in free food (happy Steph), sipped Champagne in the middle of the day (dopey Steph), contracted a cold on the second day (sneezy Steph)  and found myself at places like Pangea, Ocean Club and the Melia Spa Hotel - which by the way, has the best buffet style breakfast imaginable. Needless to say all that equates to one big fat happy Steph. Basically, I pretty much became all of the seven dwarves whilst I was out there. Not bad going eh? Anyway..

Now obviously the whole trip was centred around a certain someone called Mark Hill, who is near enough the king of all things hair. In total we spent around two days with him and his partner in crime Julian and managed to get a preview of his new product re-launch (which is the bomb, BTW) that launches next month. Think sexy ombre packaging and some, er, interesting, looking appliances that work wonders on even the most badly behaved hair (AKA mine). A few of my favourite products from the launch have to be the XXL Volume Shampoo (hello anti-gravity hair) and the Mark Hill Styling Primer (which is pretty much a 500 in 1 product), purely because they're the perfect duo for lazy girls like me since they do pretty much everything with little to no effort.

And of course, a general favourite of mine had to be the Mark Hill team. No word of a lie, Mark is one of the nicest guys I've ever met, and I'm not just saying that because he gave my hurr a sexy lil update - pics coming soon of course - but because he genuinely was the definition of the word bae. And trust me, I don't use that word lightly (if ever). 

Anyway, I'm sure you're all being lovely humans and listening (or rather, reading) to me rant and rave about how much of a great time I had, but this hardly benefits you guys in anyway, does it? Sooo I've decided to give you guys a little heads up about a competition in which you can win a weekend trip to Paris for two with flights and hotels included (and a Michelin star meal to top it all off as well). The competition is open until October 31st and all you have to do to enter is share the hashtag #perfectparis2015 on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. What, did you really think I was just going to boast for an entire blog post without giving you guys a lil summin? Pah.

Oh, I've never been to Paris, so you know, if you're wondering about who to take as your plus one I guess I could step in if I really had to. Take one for the team and all..

Huge huuuge thank you to Label PR and Mark Hill for organising our weekend away in Marbella, and shout out to my fellow blogging galz Emily, Charlotte, Whitney and Soph for being mega babes throughout the entire trip. Not sure I've ever seen so many people take flatlays of food at one time..
