1 night –> 2 launches (take 2)

I can’t believe it’s Friday already! It’s been an insane week… I have barely seen the inside of my house!
On Tuesday I had 2 launches on the same night- read here for that post.
Last night I also had 2 launches to attend- they were both fab!

The first one was at Mellins iStyle in Fourways. This is the most glam optometrist I’ve ever seen. They have a huge range of sunglasses (normal frames too) and they stock every brand I’ve heard of, like Michael Kors, Mont Blanc, Chanel- to name just a few.

In addition, they are one of the few optometrists in Africa to have this very fancy looking machine called an iProfiler which allows them to measure your eyes with up to 40% more accuracy than a normal eye test.

The launch was really cool and all the celeb ambassadors for the various sunglass brands were there.

Loving those Rayban aviators!

Next, I headed to Krut Gallery on Jan Smuts Avenue for a very swanky Marie Claire and Givenchy do. Givenchy has launched a new fragrance called Dahlia Noir, and the theme for the evening was “noir chic”. It was all very sophisticated and intimate, with everything according to theme- even the food was black! That sounds gross but trust me, the sesame crusted tuna was divine. We sipped on champagne and mingled while listening to live music. I got to meet some fellow bloggers for the first time and also chatted to the MC editor, Aspasia.

We got given these cool wristbands with the fragrance sprayed on it for us to test. So much better than those strips of cardboard!

How good does this cheescake look?
Maria Carla- the Givenchy shmodel. Can you believe she has 2 kids… wow

Goodie bags! We were all treated to a bottle of Dahlia Noir and some other Givenchy goodies..


I had a fab evening 🙂 Hope you all have a great weekend- I have a busy one planned: a friend’s bachelorette, dinner at Kream in Brooklyn (so many of you told me how much you love it so I figured I had to try it) and a photography practical at Walter Sisulu Gardens.
