So a week ago I was invited with 3 friends to attend the Baileys Women's Prize For Fiction #ThisBookClub quiz at All Bar One in Liverpool in associate with Grazia magazine.
I took my mum, my friend Amanda and my boyfriends sister, Megan.
The event was upstairs in All Bar One and it was very nice.
The night was hosted by Radio City Leanne Campbell.
When we got there we had to think of a team name and we went with my blog name, The Readers Corner!
I really enjoyed the event as at first I thought the nuts and olives on the table where the little nibbles but all night staff where coming out with plates of chicken, meatballs, etc... Also a big thank you to the them as they made more cheese and tomato sticks for my mum as she can't have any food with Gluten in and that was really lovely of them.
We also had free Baileys Flat White Martinis all night which where really yummy! They also offered white or red wine which was nice if you didn't like the Baileys.
We had 3 rounds in the quiz, all consisting of 10 questions each and a bamboozler question where you would have to run up to the mike to answer it and get some bottles of baileys.
I was proud of myself when I got some questions right.
Out of all the 3 rounds we didn't do that good and probably came last but I really loved the evening as it was really well planned out and it was nice having a relaxing evening with friends and family having a few drinks and doing the book quiz!
I really liked the photo booth! That was really fun and they had props like hats and wigs for us and it was just great!
I would like to say thank you to everyone who was involved in creating this evening as I really want to do it again and I need to brush up on some of my book history.
At the end everyone received a goody bag!
We got a tote bag and inside was a mini bottle of Baileys, a Grazia magazine, a card for the Cocktail Society at All Bar One, a bookmark, bookplate and The Brilliant Woman's Guide To A Very Modern Book Club book!
They also gave everyone 3 free months subscription for Grazia magazine, which I thought was great as I do enjoy the magazine a lot.
So a big thank you to Baileys Prize, Grazia Magazine and All Bar One for a fantastic evening!

My review -
I was really happy when I was offered a bottle of this to review as I have heard about this product a lot and was so happy to get my hands on it. At first glance it is just an ordinary bottle. The design isn't really WOW but I don't hate the design, I think it's nice and simple.
The smell is gorgeous. I really liked the mix of vanilla and the woody facets as it made such a beautiful smell that did remind me of paperbacks. The only thing is that the smell doesn't last all day. I used it in the early hours of the morning and by late afternoon I could hardly smell it so I topped up again. That was my only problem with it but all in all it is a very beautiful smell that I love wearing.
But for only £15 you cannot go wrong! I think it is such a great price for a good product and being the book lover I am, I just love this cologne a lot.
I looked through the website and made a kind of wishlist of the other products I want -
Notes of apple blossom are often used in perfumery to create a floral note that’s soft and airy in ‘texture’. Our Apple Blossom Cologne captures the warm, sweet and delicate floral scent of the blossom, with just a hint of fresh apple to represent the promise of what’s to come, resulting in a beautifully transparent floral that can be enjoyed alone, or layered with other floral combinations to give the impression of a sweet, sheer, delicate veil.
Chocolate Chip Cookie -
The perfect combination of sweet light and rich dark chocolate, embraced by a freshly baked – and not too doughy – cookie, with delicious hints of sugar, creamy butter and vanilla.
Our Chocolate Chip Cookie fragrance is warm, comforting and mouth-wateringly good, ‘bottling’ all of the flavour, and none of the calories!
One of our more subjective scents, inspired by a Shelley poem and created by letting our imaginations run a little wild. Our Moonbeam fragrance is a fascinating and unique ‘gourmand-floral’, which opens with vanilla and chocolate, then combines with green leaves, jasmine, lily of the valley, amber and precious woods. We wanted to capture the dual nature of the moonbeam, reflecting elements of both the innocence of light and the passion of night.
This one is the one I want most!
Have you ever considered the olfactory side of rain? You know it’s coming – you can smell it in the air (exactly!).
Our Thunderstorm fragrance captures this complex sensory moment perfectly – with a hint of electricity in the air, just as the rain drops start to fall from the sky, hitting the concrete and churning the earth. Like poetry, Thunderstorm is subtle and difficult to define, but real – reflecting the deep and violent nature of a summer storm.
