Benefit Does the World Cup! Gabbi's Head Pub, Covent Garden

Last weekend The Husband and I took one of our regular jaunts down to That London to see the Queen (well, watch her go by in Trooping The Colour) and do some shopping. How excited was I when, early last week, I read about Benefit's very own pub, specially created for the World Cup, which is called the Gabbi's Head in Covent Garden and was opening on Friday 13th June - the same weekend we'd be in the capital. Sweeeet!

Happily, The Husband didn't resist when I suggested dropping in to Gabbi's Head on Saturday afternoon (I think he just heard 'pub' and 'my round') so we wandered over to Covent Garden to take a look.

Gabbi's Head is located upstairs in the Prince of Wales pub on Drury Lane, and as we ascended the (pink) staircase, I briefly wondered if I was in heaven. The entire place is decked out cerise, bubblegum and baby pink with leatherette sofas, a pink foosball table and even a pink dartboard. I have zero interest in football, but World Cup matches can also be watched on the large plasma screens. There are beauty bays where you can get primped and preened whilst sipping a cocktail and you can also buy Benefit goodies at special discounted prices. (I discovered this could be dangerous - after two delicious Berry Bene-Bellinis I was declaring how much I needed an entire new makeup collection, and had to be physically restrained by The Husband). So as I have quite a bit of Benefit stuff already, I just bought a Smoky Eye Kit to replace the one I smashed a few months ago, and also a super cute makeup bag containing samples of best selling Posietint, The Porefessional and High Beam, which were being offered for a bargainous £5 donation to domestic violence charity Refuge. Gabbi's Head also serves delicious looking food (sadly I didn't try this as we already had plans for dinner).



I probably could have stayed in Gabbi's Head all day but shopping called (I'm renaming shopping after cocktails 'Squiffy Shopping', and will write a separate post on that very soon!) so reluctantly we left - but not before I popped into the loos (I was curious to see if they too were pink), and they are! There are also bottles of Benefit perfume to spritz whilst in there, and as a result I've now completely fallen in love with Under My Spell Noelle which will DEFINTELY be my next fragrance purchase!

Gabbi's Head is open every day from 12pm-12am until 13th July and along with World Cup matches, there are also lots of other things going on like comedy nights and karaoke.*Wishing I lived in London*. Have you visited Gabbi's Head yet?
