Last week myself and Caz from BNTBlogger were lucky enough to be invited down to London to the second celebration of Superdugs 50th birthday. I was very uncool photographing every minor celebrity I saw from whatever angle I could but the event was so relaxed that it really didn’t feel like a celeb bash at all. There was a fashion showcase from some up and coming designers which was choreographed around surreal, giant bottles of lotions and potions and there were hair, makeup and nail artistson hand all night to show off Unilever brands and of course for those necessary touch ups.
I finally met the lovely Jane from British Beauty Blogger – who was every inch as lovely as she appears online – who roped me in to a totally unexpected video shoot with the very talented Cassie Lomas who demonstrated one of the looks she created for the catwalk on MY FACE. The video doesn’t appear to be live yet but I’ll share it once it is.. I’ve already seen a still from it that’s less than flattering so I’m nervous but excited to see it all the same
Lastly I really lost my cool points by asking for a photo with a boyband I’m informed was on the Xfactor.. I was hoping what I lost in adult company I’d gain in kudos from my 8 year old but even she didn’t know who they were.. #fail – but really, they were lovely.. even managed to snag some maltesers from them on the dance floor so famous or not, they’re alright by me!
It was a LONG day and I was glad to be home the following afternoon but it was such a buzz to go down for a swanky event for this Northern blogger who barely gets out of the house. I’m actually heading back down for IMATS at the end of the month.. starting to feel like a local 😉 – hope to see some of you there!
PS. We also headed home with a goody bag loaded with budget friendly Unilever/Superdrug brands so I have lots of blogging fodder for July when my 30lipsin30days series is over!
