This year at Kiehls we are running along side MTV again with the MTV Staying Alive campaign in which we have the gorgeous Leona Lewis as our ambassador. Kiehls Newcastle Boutique Store have been involved of course.
We are raising awareness of HIV and Aids especially in young women between the ages of roughly 15-24. In 2015 alone there were 2.1 million new infections and 7,500 were young women between those ages affected each week. Aids is the biggest killer of adolescents in Africa and the second biggest worldwide.
The success stories so far from 2016 have been brilliant. More than 90 Peer educators have now been trained, over 9400 condoms distributed, and more than 1400 people tested. It is now 2017 and we want to smash our targets all over the country and here at Kiehls Newcastle Boutique we have had events including VIP/ Bloggers events and raffles. With more events lined up for the upcoming months.

Yes I work at Kiehls but my blog is simply my little hobby which I love doing so what better way to mix them both right??
We connected with some of our neighbour businesses for the raffle and received a bottle of champagne from ROX Jewellers Newcastle and Chocolates from Hotel Chocolat. A selection of samples and some sweets were made into gift cones and given to all attendees to the event.
Bloggers who attended the event were Laura Dawson http://ellefluence.com/blog/ , and Vanessa McIntosh http://lipstickandlinguistics.com/category/beauty/
Our best-selling Avocado Eye Cream priced at £34 is selling fantastic and £10 from every one sold goes directly to the Charity too!!
