This season kicked off with a busy November. Trying to balance, life, work, entrepreneurial opportunities, blogging and being a mom....( am sure I left a few things out lol) is not always the easiest of task. Nevertheless I am keeping my commitment to write at least once a month (no one said that it would be easy right??)
Event Blogging, can be quite the experience. It is most times unpredictable, because you do not know what is going to be the turn out, but the surprise element can be so rewarding. I am venturing more into Event Blogging, where you can contact me to attend and review your event. I know most times as bloggers we attend the events that are relevant to our industry, but I think that in order for you to keep abreast off ALL the trends, attending different events is of essence, not to mention that it is a great platform to network.
I had the pleasure of attending Vanity's First Beauty Festival Vanity First St.Maarten It was 3 days of beauty activities with various brands like Black Up Cosmetics, Sisley, Sisheido, Hoise 99 & Many More. On Friday which, was when I attended, it was a Black affair, hosted by my dear friend and local radio personality, Elektra. If you have been to any of her events, you should know that you can always expect the unexpected: fire dancer and a group of women dancing to the electric slide in the middle of the Boardwalk. We had champagne....a pop up bar, mini makeovers, hand facials, beauty advice, skin analysis, gift with purchase just to mention a few...Most importantly we had each other and were ready to have fun fun fun!!
Yours truly got a chance to test one of Black Up's The 2 in 1 lip contour pencil from blacklUp combines a contour and lipstick to define, enhance and sculpt your lips. Adopt the ombré lips with two-toned lipstick! In a blink of an eye, it allows you to create ombré lips thanks to two shades that go perfectly together, specially selected to show up perfectly on darker skin tones.
Another event that I had the pleasure of attending was the official Launch of Piper-Heidsieck which is a Champagne house founded by Florens-Louis Heidsieck on July 16, 1785 in Reims. Heidsieck joined with Piper in October 1839. In the late 1980s, Piper-Heidsieck became part of the Rémy Cointreau wine and spirits group. Piper-Heidsieck is currently distributed by CC1 St.Maarten no stranger to the world of wines and spirits.
The launch and tasting were for three of the brands: Cuvée Brut, Brut de Rosé and Demi-Sec French Riviera. Another brand, the prestigious Rare Champagne, was re-released last year. Only 11 vintages have been released since 1976. The French Riviera was my favorite as it is for a sweeter palate.
What I liked about the image of Piper-Heidsieck is the creativity behind the brand. It is really a fun and flirty brand, I can definitely see everyone having fun while drinking this champagne.”
The creativity and fun side of the brand was reflected in the accessories – the pink lipstick wine cooler, another cooler in the shape of an ice cream cone, and a pink handbag for a bottle and two glasses, perfect for a premium gift.
Piper-Heidsieck has been the exclusive champagne for the annual Oscars ceremony since 2015. But the breaking news of the evening was the Wine Spectator announcement on November 19, 2019, that Piper-Heidsieck Cuvée Brut is the only champagne featured in its top 100 list of wines for 2019. It is also the most awarded champagne house of the century with more than 300 awards and more than 100 gold medals.
There are will always be events that you can directly relate to, for me, they give me the opportunity to mingle, meet new people and blog about amazing experiences that I can share with my readers.
