Hi all! So the bf is back from France - yay! I had some fab French chocolates and some gorgeous bird beads to make jewellery with - I will take pics tomorrow to show you :)
I've been a bit quiet on the blog-front lately because, apart from the cold I've had, all of my spare time has been spent organising an event! It's called Sweet F.A. Cocktail Party Fashion Auction and is taking place in a fabulous waterfront bar next month. It's been a LOT of work because I am working on a ZERO budget!
I have often seen fashion swap parties and fashion blogger events on various blogs and am always disappointed at the lack of these kind of events in Wellington. We have loads of events here, but none of them are quite the cocktail - clothes - girly events I've seen online. Add that to the fact that my friends and I wouldn't mind trying to sell some of the clothes we've got hanging in the backs of our wardrobes, and that's why I decided to go for it!
I spent HOUUURS on the weekend emailing PRs, companies, shops and restaurants asking for items donated in return for logos and mentions on all of the advertising. So far I have had 14 donations!! They range from a 10 week Bikram yoga course, a $100 bar & restaurant voucher to a $100 L O'ccitane voucher and a heated eyelash curler from Model Co! Big whoop!
I'm super excited about the event now that we've finalised the venue (just yesterday) but I also think I am a little mad for taking it all on at the moment! November is always the busiest time of year here with parties and birthdays AND i'm also signed up for three more markets before December.
Who says you can't at least TRY and do it all?! ;)
