Last month, I was invited to model some beautiful gowns by Serenity & Grace at the Luxuria Lifestyle Blogger & Influencer Networking Showcase. The event took place at the stylish 3, St James Square venue in London – an exclusive private members’ wellness club. As someone who has modelled for ten years but only joined the ‘blogging scene’ last year, this was my first VIP ticket to network with a range of luxury brands and to meet like-minded influencers. There’s been a huge increase in advertising via social media over the last few years and companies are recognising the need to use social influencers and bloggers for their campaigns (instead of celebrities) because they are more relatable to their target audience. Before the #LLLuxBlogFest, I had never been to any similar shows, so I was thrilled to have an exclusive ticket to this all new VIP event!
On the day, I arrived early to try on my outfits for the fashion show and to have a rehearsal with the models before the official opening. (I had requested to do the choreography and music for the show as it’s always something I have been interested in.) Most of the girls modelling were primarily bloggers so I ran though some simple choreography with them so they felt confident with their walks. I had chosen music to reflect the four themes of the gowns we were modelling – The Royal Engagement, The Oscars, The Royal Ascot and The Royal Wedding. Here’s a few of our looks by Serenity & Grace below. (I’m on the far right!)
After the show, I had a chance to mingle amongst the people showcasing their luxury products – these companies ranged from clothing, beauty, jewellery, health & fitness, food & drink and property. The show was thriving, full of fashionistas sipping complimentary champagne and clutching their gift bags full of luxury goodies. Whilst on my way over to one of the instagrammable flower walls for a selfie, my name was suddenly called out over the microphone – I had won an eyeshadow palette by Kandi Cosmetics! (Not bad for taking ten seconds to fill out a competition entry upon arrival!)

Since attending the Luxuria Lifestyle blogger event, I have decided to continue focusing on growing my blog and social media content. I’ve been looking for a company to represent me as a brand ambassador so when I spotted that Luxuria Lifestyle ran their own international ambassador team with Hachi Digital, I couldn’t wait to apply! Soon after, I was thrilled to be accepted as one of the VIP team members:
I can’t wait to start blogging on all aspects of luxury living, everything from hotels to restaurants to fashion to beauty products. So watch this space!
