Grease is the word at The Hard Rock Cafe

I’m back and reporting from another amazing event- this time I was headed to the Hard Rock Cafe in London for a Grease themed night! The Hard Rock Cafe kindly invited me to the event as a blogger and I was thrilled to accept the invitation. So I’m here to tell you how Grease is the word at the Hard Rock Cafe London.

First things first, I stopped off at Rush Hair Salon on Piccadilly Circus after work for a masterclass hair session. The salon is doing a masterclass campaign this season so do go and check the details out here. They taught me how to back comb and had me style my own updo, I’m sure if you follow me on Twitter and Instagram you’ve seen the before and after photos, such a difference! So after my masterclass and my new updo, I was ready to step back in time to the 50’s and go have some fun at the Hard Rock!

Pop Picturehouse partnered with Hard Rock to provide a full night’s entertainment. As well as the movie complete with actors playing the Rydell High heartthrobs and pink ladies, we also had a photobooth, makeup stations and themed props around the bar. Here are a few shots around the venue so you can see how fabulous the set up was on the night.

After having a cocktail and ordering some classic nachos (gluten free without the cheese sauce) we all gathered round the film screen and stage at 8pm to watch the movie. Grease has been and always will be one of my favourite movies of all time, so I was singing along with everyone else! Joining me on the night were Luisa, Lissa and Jasmine (pictured below with the actors)

The actors came on at all the right moments and really lifted the already high spirits of the audience. They mimed to the best bits of the movie and danced perfectly to the classic songs- we all loved it!

The next Pop Picturehouse event is happening very soon at the Hard Rock, this time it’s Spiceworld! Check out the Facebook page here for more info on how to get tickets.

I thoroughly enjoyed the event, it was so different to anything I’d been to before. Grease is one word which will never get old in my opinion, so thank you so much Hard Rock Cafe in collaboration with Pop Picturehouse for a rock n roll event!

If you’re up for another post featuring rock n roll, why not check out what I got up to at Icebar London

My Event-full week at Icebar London

I have never had a more exciting week as the week just gone. I managed to get to 5 amazing events around London and I’m here to start the event-full week off with a sub-zero experience. My Monday night kicked off at the famous Icebar London. I had been looking forward to this event for months ever since Lauren (@Blonde_Vision) started organising this. I’m sure if you check out the hashtag ‘bloggersbelowzero’ on Twitter you will find so many wonderful bloggers who joined me on this night of thrills and literal chills!

Luisa and I met up at the Icebar just off Oxford Circus for 6.30, and got straight to mingling with friendly faces new and familiar- the blogging community is so lovely I feel like after a twenty minute chat with a complete stranger we are happy and already following each other on Instagram! I got to meet Lauren who was responsible for the event, and also there on the night was Tom, Sales and Marketing Manager from Icebar London who gave us a welcome warm enough to fight the cold later on! We were put into groups and had a fabulous time chatting to each other while we waited to head on upstairs to the icebar itself.

I wasn’t prepared for how cold it would actually be! I was in the last group of the night to go in, and we were given a massive protective poncho with fluffy hood and gloves to wear. I felt like a real live Eskimo!

We were dressed and ready to go in, so through the tunnel we went and came out the other side into an icy fortress. Ice was everywhere, you wanted to look, touch and take it all in, it was beautiful and breathtaking. I’m not exaggerating- my breath was visible!

The theme throughout from the sculptures around us to the drinks at the bar was rock- look how insane this setup is and it is all 100% crafted from ice!!

After spending as much time as I possibly could working my way round the room, I made it to the bar and ordered a Whole Lotta Rosie which was made with bourbon- perfect to give you a little warmth while in the icebar!

The glasses were pure ice as well, super cold but super yummy! After a few more pics and snapchats, I got out of there as my hands were starting to seize up on me! It was totally worth it though, and once you are out the rest of the building warms you up straight away. I don’t want to say too much about the experience, I want you to go and discover it for yourself…

The Icebar London is the perfect alternative event to spend a romantic date this Valentine’s Day and it’s a great activity to do with a group of friends too. If you haven’t been it’s right near Oxford Circus, so what are you waiting for, book your visit here!

I want to thank Lauren and Tom for organising such a wonderful event together, #bloggersbelowzero will definitely go down as one of the coolest blogging events I’ve been to! (I couldn’t resist that haha)
