Yesterday was a super exciting day as we hosted our first #fashionbeautybooks event in London to celebrate fashion designer Olivia Rubin’s new rainbow collection.
When our guests weren’t browsing Olivia’s gorgeous pieces, they were treated to manicures by Secret Spa using a rainbow of Smith & Cult nail polishes and having the OriginailsUK team apply their specially designed digital nail prints of Olivia’s rainbow print. Editor-in-chief of Hello! Magazine, Rosie Nixon was also there signing copies of her new book, Amber Green takes Manhattan.
Everyone loved the Insta-friendly Rinkoff Bakery rainbow bagels and crodoughs, while Cru Kafe, the organic and ethical nespresso-friendly coffee makers delivered a much-needed caffeine hit! However, Rhythm Health kept things healthy with delicious tropical kefir shots (we figured kefir shot + crodough = credit/debit!)
Guests left clutching a goodie bag full of rainbow treats including: super cute rainbow meringue kisses from The Meringue Girls, colourful nail polishes, lip glosses and mascara from Smith & Cult, a Rhythm Health life shot, a LOC Millie lip liner from Birchbox, a Prismologie mini body scrub & hand exfoliant, a signed copy of Amber Green Takes Manhattan and either an Olivia Rubin rainbow print wallet or iPhone cover.
As always, we loved mixing with like-minded women who’ve fast become friends both on and offline – all busy building businesses, often whilst juggling families and full-time jobs too. The biggest lesson we’ve learned so far is how important and inspiring these connections are and how central it is to our ethos to support other women and small businesses on our journey.
Now all we have to do is start planning the next one. Do drop us an email if you fancy coming to our first ticketed event!
