On Thursday 30th July, I couldn’t wait to ditch the office flats for my heels as I rushed over to Oxford Street after work. InStyle magazine had organised a special reader event in one of Swarovski’s Regent St stores. No expense was spared on the decorations; silver balloons glistening like diamonds and bags of sweet treats hidden in every corner. They even had Ciaté nail technicians on hand to give manicures too!
As I entered and took a glass of bubbly off the nearest tray to me, I couldn’t decide where to begin. The store was packed with ladies and handbags as well as mountains of jewellery, so I found myself stopping at the closest cabinet. My eye was immediately caught by a stunning pair of earrings, they were V shaped, rose gold, and they had my name on them! Thanks to the £10 gift card given to us on arrival, I purchased these for £59 on the night instead of £69. Check them out online here, they come in silver too!
We had a trend talk from InStyle’s Fashion Director who told us that mixed metals are the must-haves this season. My Delta earrings also have matching sister rings and necklaces, so we’ll see how long it takes for me to mix these up! After making my purchase, I headed for the manicure table. I chose a nude blush colour called ‘Amazing Gracie’, and almost 5 days on not a single chip. Ciaté are well worth the investment of £9 per bottle, and they have just launched a collection with Olivia Palermo, so they are gaining a name for themselves since launching in 2009.
InStyle have another event coming up in August- this time they have collaborated with Bravissimo and will take place in InStyle’s London office on the 12th August. Get your tickets for £10 here, I’ll definitely be going there on another adventure soon!
