Cannes Film Festival memories

Cannes Film Festival memories

Hello darlings, It’s been a while and so, so many things have happened! That many that it will take me more than one post to tell you everything without you getting bored or lost in all my tales! So I’ll start with the most impactful and recent one – my work at Cannes Film Festival. Even if the festival ended only two weeks ago, I already struggle to remember everything in detail because of how dynamic everything was. The festival took place between the 17th and the 28th May this year and it was my first year attending it. I flew over with a team of PR professionals in my first graduate adult adventure as a PR & Marketing person. I wrote articles, liaised with press, was part of the organising team of a Celebrity Suite, met lots and lots of people and tasted the craziness of what goes behind a huge event like this. Everyone sees the festival as a glamorous experience and now looking at my pictures, I realise why, but truth is, as an insider, as someone that works behind the scenes, I can tell you it is not all pink and bubbly, but rather rushed, last minute, spontaneous and exhausting. Not that glamorous, huh? But at the end of the day, the reason why it’s so exhausting is that there is so much to do during the day and so many events to attend during the night, that there is little to no time left for sleeping or eating! Truth is, they were some 2 weeks hard to keep up with, but I have learnt...
Bergen Brand UK launch

Bergen Brand UK launch

Hello there, So while getting better and catching up on things, I realised that I never told you about this great event I attended a few weeks ago. So here’s a little update… Bergen Brand is a well known brand originated in Norway. Bergen is a beautiful city that inspired Renate Stormark, the brand’s designer, to create timeless pieces that echo her values – quality and taste. It had its launch in the UK a few weeks ago at Wolf & Badger and the guests were mesmerized by the pieces and agreed that it’s a great added element to the London style. The event was a success and as I handled the Public Relations for it, I can say it was an amazing experience and I have met some inspiring people from the fashion industry! Have a look at how the event went and a few testimonials from the night here: As you can see, it was all joy and laughter, and guests were delighted with the designer and to see her great pieces. I believe London can only inspire her to further develop the brand and create new ‘must have’ pieces. Can’t wait to see what Renate has in store, but until then, here are some pictures from the event. Excited to show you what else I’ve been working on, so stick around! Hugs, D.   I was wearing: Dress – New Look Blazer – Vintage Shoes – Primark Pictures by Modele Production/Getty...

Delilah Make-up Masterclass @ Stripes

Hi darlings, As much as my blog is focused on fashion and not make-up, with all this girlyness inside me you can imagine that I do like a bit of make up talk. Actually, maybe more than a bit. I admire all the effort that goes into a face contoured better than a painting, and I truly believe it’s a lot of hard work. However, I also think that there’s a time and place for a contoured face. Photoshoots – perfect, a big event or a night out – sure, but I’m not an adept on wearing it on a daily basis. Mostly because I really like natural looks, I believe that with the right products you can get a lovely texture and look really nice with less make-up than you’d think! Also, I am not a morning person, so even if I’d like contouring as a daily make up – ain’t nobody got time for that!  And lastly, I don’t like looking the same all the time, which is why I prefer a natural look during day time and if I miraculously wake up earlier and have the time, I will create a sharp eye liner, if not, I’m definitely a fan of a bold lipstick to get you through the day!  And yes, I speak so confidently about it because my beliefs have been confirmed by a make up expert, which makes me hold on to them even stronger! Rupert Kingston, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Delilah, a luxury British cosmetics brand, came to Worcester to show us how to do the perfect summer make-up!  The event...
All things Vogue

All things Vogue

Hello darlings, I know I haven’t posted an Inspirational Monday in a while, but I thought it’d be a good moment to do that as this Monday comes right after a weekend filled with so much inspiration! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’d know I spent the weekend in London attending the Vogue Festival. It was the first edition I have ever attended and obviously, I was really excited! And it was all worth it, it was a great experience! The festival went on for 2 days and it was filled with a lot of great talks and masterclasses as well as a huge tent in Kensignton Gardens where fashionistas could take advantage of great offers and have some amazing experiences. The talks that I chose to attend on Saturday were Alexa Chung’s Style Clinic with Lauren Santo Domingo and Derek Blasberg and “The Allure of Paris cool” with Isabel Marant and Caroline de Maigret in conversation with Lisa Armstrong. The first show was very interesting and showed a different perspective of fashion, from 3 people with very different styles and at the same time, different inputs in the fashion world, but they all agreed that in order to make it into the fashion world you have to work your a** off, no joke! That, and that the fashion world is not such a cruel one after all and you can still be a good person and work in fashion! The second show made me feel like I am in France at a small table in front of a cafe sipping on some good wine and...
Untold 2015 //Day 4

Untold 2015 //Day 4

Hello darlings, As I keep telling you, Untold was an amazing experience and I cannot wait for next year’s edition! The last day amazed the crowd with a great ending – lights, animations, fireworks – it was perfect! And well, since we’re talking about the last day, it means we reached the end of my Untold outfit series, but not to worry, I am here to end this in style! This outfit was my favourite! It was the most feminine one and I was really looking forward to wearing it! During the festival, I mostly wore casual, comfy things, mostly branded, so they were not something unusual, they were something accessible to everyone. I needed a bit of originality and uniqueness. And so I wore this beeeeaaauuutifuuul dress!! I literally love it so much! It has a great print, those amazing cuts and that chic, girly, vibe. It’s just dreamy! And it was a real success! Everyone asked me where I got it from, and got all curious about it! But now there’s a little secret to it. I got it from my “back up storage of cool things”. I most certainly told you about it before, didn’t I? Well, I will tell you again! It’s my mum’s amazing taste in fashion and her great instinct of not throwing away any of these beautiful pieces, until I run through them. Yes, you got it right. It’s a vintage piece that belonged to my mum, and which I reinvented by customizing it and matching it to my style and voilĂ  – a fresh piece that can easily fit into today’s...
Untold 2015 //Day 3

Untold 2015 //Day 3

Hey, weekend lovers! It’s that amazing day of the week, when you know there is another day of weekend coming, so you’re feeling like on vacation! It’s a busy Saturday for me, catching up with things and still buying some stuff for my new house, but still, I got to wake up without an alarm, which means that I woke up with an instant smile on my face. So let’s make this Saturday a great one! But first, let me share with you my third outfit from Untold Festival, which was the most casual one, for 2 reasons. First, because I got to realise I don’t like other outfit options that I thought of, so I started being in a rush, and secondly because it was the day when I jumped all the time, literally. So I was truly happy with my choice. It was a warm up night of Hip Hop with DJ Charlesy and Tinie Tempah, and since I am such a big fan of Hip Hop, I literally did not stop dancing. I enjoyed it to the maximum, and Tinie did do a great show! Unfortunately, I did not get to see Armin Van Buuren, but my friends’ reviews were amazing, saying that he had a long, interactive set, and you could see he was enjoying himself in our beautiful city! And that’s great, because I hope to see him next year! So, my dancing outfit was sneakers – mandatory for my jumps, jeans, a top and a loose shirt. All you want from an outfit, to let you move around and be free to practice...
