Last week, I was invited to go to the ASOS Beauty event at their HQ in Camden. We were greeted by the three Cs: champagne, cupcakes and canapés. I have to say I am not overly interested in any of the three Cs when I go to an event (at home, I love cupcakes).
There was also a manicure table held by Charlotte Straughan, the CEO of Ciaté. It was wonderful to be able to get my nails done while getting all the new nailpolish trends explained by one of the leaders in the business. It was also very interesting to speak to another woman who has made it all on her own, despite being told everyday that hers was a silly idea. I love meeting driven women, it restores my faith in humanity.
A good opportunity for you to check out my engagement ring!!
Speaking of driven women, YouTube make up sensation Lauren Luke was also there to give us make up advice and promote her book. The book looks extremely promising, very clear and nice to look at. A great Christmas present! I didn’t get to speak to Lauren as I was busy looking at everything and being interviewed by Grazia, but I tried her make-up range a few months ago and I would recommend it to anyone. The eye primer and lipsticks are especially good.
The ASOS Christmas beauty range was on display as well and I know a lot of you are going to be really happy about it: Benefit gift sets, beautiful Bourjois paint pots, ASOS paint by Ciaté, Paul & Joe lipsticks etc.
I also had a first look at the new ASOS Black range that just went online, including a crini mini dress I had seen in their magazine in the Summer. Well… It is definitely not something I could wear for obvious boobage reasons, but you should definitely check it out if you are more erm…small boobed than me!
And this is what I wore for the event (my apologies for the completely stoned look, I swear I only had OJ).
I am wearing my new Clothes Horse dress by Modcloth, vintage bag, My So Called Heels by Chinese Laundry from Modcloth as well and a vintage brooch (belonged to my grandma).
I would like to say here how impressed I am at those Modcloth heels, as I am not at all a heels girl for obvious crazy ankle reasons you can see by yourself on this photo. BUT My So Called heels are so comfy even though they are super high. I think it is because of the crepe platform and heel and also because the platform is quite high, but I love them! Also, they have the perfect pretty ugly look I love so much. Expect to see a lot of them in the coming months.
