It all started on my lunch break…I was having a pretty tough day (but who doesn’t) and as usual checked my emails. To my surprise (and I really was surprised) I received an email from Latest In Beauty. At first I was super excited because I thought they had come across my blog independently, but totally forgot I had met Latest In Beauty late last year at the #blogospherechristmas market. I had spoken to the Latest In Beauty reps and had given them my blog URL (duh). It all started to make sense but neither the less I WAS still pretty excited because this email offered me a chance to celebrate the launch of their limited edition beauty boxes. And not just any box either it was a beauty box in collaboration with Disney Beauty and The Beast, which also the acclaimed film will be out at the cinemas in the UK March 17th.
So when I was asked to forward my address I thought, how lucky am I to be getting a chance to review one of the boxes. I just assumed this because I was told in the email to look out for something special coming my way soon. So two weeks later quite anxious I hadn’t missed the delivery. I finally got it! NOT the box but an INVITATION, to celebrate the launch of the Beauty and Beast limited edition boxes as well as a sneek trailer of the film!
Now the butterflies were fluttering in my tummy. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Fast forward a couple of weeks later I made my way towards the beautiful The Lanesborough Hotel and quickly paired with another lovely Blogger Sian, where we were greeted by a rep from Latest In Beauty in the Belgravia room. Sian was great company for the afternoon and I am glad to have met her! I also met Jessica an English Creative Graduate, whom was also sweet company.
The evening was buzzing with other Bloggers. I even got to meet Scarlett, Scarlett London, that was cool, she was really sweet and down to earth. Even Chief in Editor Alice at Blogosphere Magazine attended. The evening was spent mingling and talking about the Latest In Beauty launch. There were free manicures and hand massage treatments being given, which I did take advantage of. The hand massages were done by L’Occitane and manicures by Soigné absolute luxury (thank you, I felt extra special). The waiters and waitresses made sure the champagne and canapes flowed throughout the evening (hiccup)
On my way out, I was greeted by one of the reps of Latest In Beauty and was given the Beauty and the Beast box (for her) which made the day even more special. So stay tuned for a blog post on whats in the box : ) !
The event was truly special and I would love to thank Latest at Beauty for this wonderful opportunity.
