I was so excited to attend my first fashion/style/beauty/notboringwork event! Clinique's Dramatically Different launch party was a fantastic night, but you can take my word for it over on my latest post. Their Facebook has some fantastic images and a very well done video of the night. There were plenty of bloggers for me to ogle, my personal fave being Carmen from Chronicles of Her; let me just say, even more gorgeous in the flesh!
For those of you who didn't read my Clinique post (shame on you) my cute, goldfish dress is by Nishe via Asos. I'll get some up close pictures soon to show you all how TO DIE FOR it is!
UPDATE:Since the links no longer work...
I have a confession to make…. I had not used Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion (DDML) before. Gasp! The horror! I apologise I was not on the band wagon. Sure, I knew it was Clinique’s top selling product… everywhere… ever. But the truth is I’d been using the Moisture Surge range (my current favourite was the Turnaround Concentrate) and then the Redness Solutions Day Cream. I guess I just never got around to DDML.
By now though, unless you are currently in residence under a rock, you’ve heard Clinique has released a new, improved and revamped DDML… PLUS! Bloggers, Clinique lovers and beauty fanatics have been going crazy for it. Not wanting to be left behind, I grabbed a bottle and gave it a whirl. Now I’m not going to say the same things you’ve heard everywhere… let’s just say it’s great. Simple as that, it’s great. It’s perfect for any skin type; quickly absorbed and my face feels flexible (it’s how I feel don’t judge) all day long.
Now what I am going to tell you about that is almost as awesome, is the launch party for DDML+ that Clinique kindly invited me to! It was yellow fever that night (not the bad, disease kind obviously) the yellow decorations, the yellow ice cream and the yellow drinks. My favourite champagne, Veuve Clicquot was over flowing in yellow flutes! Clinique really went above and beyond for this launch, the attention to detail (check out the cute sponge DDML cut outs in the pics!) and tasty canapés really made an impact. I love fashion though (check out my blog here) so the highlight of my night was checking out the gorgeous fashionistas around! Now sadly I don’t watch much tv so the celebrities were lost on me but the fashion bloggers were not! I don’t want to gush or name drop but I saw a couple of my favourite style icons rocking their looks. I wore a dress by Nishe (via Asos) with embroidered goldfish on it, an “I cannot live without” find. While it didn’t match the yellow theme it was the perfect mix between chic and fun, which is what Clinique embodies for me! Suffice to say, there were plenty of ladies there that should be running fashion and beauty blogs if they’re not already; just gorgeous! I wish I’d met a few more people, sadly it wasn’t exactly the sort of room where you felt confident introducing yourself to strangers (well not me anyway!) but if there’s one thing I’ve learnt in my short years; networking is an art!
Apologies for writing a whole post that incites jealousy! I’ll invite you all to any event I throw, but I can’t promise it will be for a product this great. Double the moisture, some extra yellow fun and you have a continued best seller.
