Gabrielle Grace Keith VIP Ambassador for Luxuria Lifestyle gives her take on our first LuxBlogFest
March 2, 2018
As you may have seen I am an ambassador for the online magazine Luxuria Lifestyle.
They held their very first blogger event #LLLuxblogfest on Sunday 25th February at 3 St James Square in London. This was my first time meeting with the CEO’s and other ambassador’s for the first time as we all live in different location’s and countries! There was 100+ bloggers attending and 20 showcases.
I rarely ever go to London as I’m always so busy in Manchester, so it was a nice change to get the train down to London for the day! We arrived at the event (fashionably late) and were greeted by the club concierge staff. Upon arrival every guest filled out a referral card for a friend that may be interested in coming to the next event, the cards were then entered into a prize draw with £2000 worth of prizes for later on in the day.
As you walked in there was some beautiful light up letters representing #LL♡ and two flowers walls. One white wall which was upstairs and one pink wall which was downstairs. These were from @essexeventhire Essex Event Hire who are a rental service that provide beautiful surrounding areas with light up letters and flower walls! These were definitely one of the most popular companies from the event as we all love something instagrammable!
We walked through the busy reception area straight to the bar, where there was plenty of Sushi to snack on. Behind us there was the brand Crystal Skull Vodka with a table full of skull head vodka shots, where you got to take the glass home! – cute. Crystal Head Vodka contains no additives, added sugar or citrus oils, which are common in many types of vodka. There is a real emphasis on the purity of the Vodka and of course the fabulous bottle!
David Fowkes Jewellery had some beautiful pieces showcased at the event. Their jewellery is luxury and bespoke using speciality-cut gemstones which are hand made in Nottinghamshire.
One of the main rooms was where Rey Rey shoes was showcasing their luxury shoe collection, they are Scandinavian designed with Italian craftsmanship. My Mum was lucky enough to win a pair of shoes from the prize draw! There was £2000 worth of luxury prizes given out, including spa days, luxury gin and champagne and lots more.
After spending some time upstairs we thought we would go and meet with the rest of the brands, set up downstairs within the gym area of this fabulous private members club.
It was so lovely to meet my fellow ambassador Chloe Tyler who had modelled some beautiful dresses and walked in the fashion show at the event for Serenity and Grace! There was also a try on for the dresses after the show. This is the other beautiful white flower wall from essex event hire.
Here are some of the brands that were showcasing at the event!
Papillion Beachwear had some beautiful personalised beach bags! Their website is in the process of being created so keep your eye open for them at Papillon BeachwearKandicosmetics are who I had the pleasure of modelling for a few weeks ago! Their eyeshadow palette’s are cruelty free, highly pigmented and are also able to buy from Pretty Little Thing!
With them being priced between £15-£20 they are definitely worth adding to your makeup collection. I use the ‘Koffee palette’ Get 20% off with code PAYDAY at Kandi CosmeticsThe Dermatography Clinic were doing a semi permanent make up live showcase.
Based in Spitalfields they are a private specialist clinic offering cosmetic and medical tattooing.One of my favourite stands as I LOVE eyelashes, Blinking Beauté are a premier collection of luxe silk lashes which can be used up to 30 times with proper care. They have a 3D design from constructing multiple layers of fibers by hand. They are superior quality and are also available on Sephora.Brysocrema is a collection of superior makeup that has been formulated to compliment the complexions of women of colour. The range has been specifically developed to capture the cool/medium to dark tones and offers a more radiant flawless finish.
Rosemary Water has major benefits, as well as tasting totally delicious.
Rosemary Water boosts memory, improves moods, reduces inflammation, relieves pain, stimulates circulation and protects the immune system.
The SmartBatz guys flew in from Paris especially to share their sleek iPhone battery chargers with us at this wonderful event, which are proving very popular with restaurants where they are offering these chargers to diners at the table rather than handing their phone over to a waiter and being left behind the bar. The charge is twice as powerful as a classic charger and looks extremely sleek and stylish.
Sorry for Being Sexy is a new underwear brand based in London who are soon also launching swimwear!
