The event was held at I ♥ My Laundry which I really do heart and organised by Stiletto J who I also ♥.
We started the event with some fabulous infused drinks courtesy of Jorgensen's Distillery. The venue was decorated fabulously and courtesy of some of the sponsors including Europa Art shoes and Cocoa Fair.
For snacks, we got to try some of I ♥ My Laundry's new food venture, the first museli bar in Cape Town. They'll be serving this daily from 07h00. And if like me, you love some muesli, get on down to 59 Buitengracht street. It was delish and not just your standard swiss stuff. There was even talks of a chocolate muesli. Hawt damn!
Then came the experts. After every talk, there were prizes from each brand and some that didn't have reps there. We got to hear from three fab ladies who are all in the business of making other ladies look even better. We got to hear about Bisousoleil, a sunless tan range. If you're looking a bit pasty, there's a fab comp to win a little something something over here.
And finally we got to hear about cupping from Bellabaci. Now if you're like me, you know cupping as that gross thing that Gwyneth Paltrow did and it left her with those weird marks on her back. As I found out, cupping can be used to detox, reduce stretch marks, combat cellulite and firm the skin and help with digestive disorders. I was certainly told.
After all the competitions, which I sadly didn't win - I'm bitter, can you tell - we had a chance to chill, have some more drinks and I may have helped myself to more than one piece of chocolate.
At the end, we all left with a fabulous goodie bag, which I couldn't resist to open straight away. There was more chocolate in there, can you blame me.
Thanks again to Jeanne from Stiletto Adventures for inviting me and the fabulous Laundry Boys for putting on a good show.
