I know it’s supposed to be a fashion blog but hey beauty, fashion… it’s all girly and important 😉
I had a pleasure of attending Elle Beauty Event in Harvey Nichols last week organised to celebrate the magazine’s 25th birthday (OMG I’m nearly as old – how depressing). Now, anyone who knows me knows that as much into fashion I am, most of the time (in and out of work especially) I’m looking simply crazy. Unfortunately getting up at 5 in the morning is not appealing to me at all and so I leave house with the weirdest things on me sometimes… So, you can imagine, as beauty is not that much of my obsession it gets even worse. All I can say is that I usually dye my hair after girls at work or my dearest friend O, who is never too gentle with her words when it comes to telling me how bad I look, asks how many months ago was it that I got my hair done…
I’m also not the biggest Elle lover. I generally like the fact of something in some way relating to me and that also applies to magazines. UK feels like another world (which I don’t have too much interest in although I do like travel) to me and reading about all those things that have no relevance to my everyday life just kinda puts me off (the fact that my boy is a bit of a crazy in love with Ireland boy doesn’t help 😉 ). That’s mostly why I’m such a dedicated reader of Stellar and Irish Tatler magazines. And ok, I can understand why someone thinks Elle is better, it’s surely more of a high-end fashion read but I do like the idea of Dubliners supporting the Irish writers… which are brilliant!
So anyway, back to the event. It was loads of fun, my friend Mon got all pampered when she volunteered to get a free facial (why the heck did I not?!) and we drank few (too many) of delicious Cosmos and generally had a laugh. Getting to try some new and not so new but different cosmetic brands was great and getting some advice about make-up even better.
We left the party with big smiles on our faces, lovely goodie bags filled with some great products, couple of euros less in our pockets but some lovely, pretty purchases too. All in all a night to remember.
