A couple of weeks ago Pandora invited me to their Style Session event in London, with Cosmopolitan, in celebration of their new collection that’s just launched. I love Pandora and own a lot of their jewellery, so I was really excited to be invited.
The Style Session was held at their flagship store in Marble Arch. On the ground floor was the normal shop and on the first level was where the event was taking place. They had champagne on arrival (great start) and little purple cupcakes.
The room was beautiful and had three beauty stations as well as a free bar (who doesn’t love free alcohol!?). Smashbox, NailsInc and Crabtree & Evelyn were hosting the beauty stations; giving everyone mini makeovers, hand massages and manicures. The perfect little pamper for a Thursday evening.
As there were about 50 people at the event, trying to get round to all the beauty stations before the Q&A was a nightmare as the queues were so long. I managed to get to Smashbox for my mini makeover but as I had been at work during the day, there was not much for them to add to my face (thank you setting spray!). I tried out their Always On, Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Yellow Red (link here) and fell in love with it instantly. I love wearing red lipsticks but find that they fade so easily. This lipstick stayed on for the whole night and the colour was as bold as it was when first applied. I wish I wore less makeup that day so I could have tried more of their products because the lipstick I wore that evening was incredible.
One of the directors at Pandora had a Q&A with Cosmopolitan’s Senior Fashion Editor. They spoke about AW17/18 trends, London Fashion Week and what it’s like being a fashion editor. Being new into the fashion industry, it was inspiring to hear all the things she achieved and the things that I could if I was to continue my career in fashion. I’ve been given the opportunity to go to London Fashion Week this year, so it was fascinating hearing her account of what it’s like working at one of the biggest events in the fashion world.
It was such an amazing evening looking at Pandora’s new collection, having a couple of cosmos and a mingle with people in the fashion industry. I’m so so grateful for the invite and the super cute goodie bag!
