Last night I was lucky enough to attend the launch of the new Rockalily lipstick; ZOMG. The lipstick is a collaboration between Rockalily and Zoe from The London Lipgloss and is a gorgeous vibrant pink shade with a touch of red that looks stunning on! I totally forgot to take a picture of the lipstick at the event though! I’m planning on buying one so you can all see it then!
I was really nervous about attending the launch party as I didn’t know anyone else that was going, but I bonded with some lovely girls (Tami, Megan, Elena, Laura and Abbi) on Twitter and we all met up at St Pancras station and found our way together! It was so good to meet you all!
When we arrived at the event it was pretty empty as we were early! So we were encouraged to have out photo taken by the lovely Tigz!
The venue was lovely, it had chandeliers everywhere and the loos were amazing! It got busy really quickly though and soon was heaving with beautiful bloggers! This made me, Tami and Megan go all shy and we really regretted not talking to more people when it was over! We got stuck into all the activities that there were though, we decorated a cupcake, made valentines day cards and tried to complete our bloggers bingo cards ( I lost mine though!)
I also got to meet L.Figment who came to speak to us after she’d had her hair done in a vintage style that looked bloomin’ amazing! I wish we had had the chance to speak for longer although I might have revealed too much info about myself if we had, no idea why I informed you of my deep sea creature obsession! We also spoke of our desire for the gorgeous Marilyn Monroe-esque beauty that we had seen wandering about (she didn’t wander, she glided like such a thing of beauty would) and it turned out that she was one of the burlesque performers, Miss Banbury Cross. I want her.
The evening ended with two performances by very different burlesque performers, Rubyyy Jones (a more modern routine) and Banbury Cross (traditional burlesque which ended with champagne being sprayed everywhere!) both were amazing! I really enjoyed this part of the event, my first experience of burlesque, and would definitely go and see burlesque performers again!
Overall, the event was fabulous and it was so amazing, yet weird to see so many bloggers in the same room! I can’t wait to get my hands on the lipstick now!
