Motel Rocks Christmas party!

Last night me and Kaori (link) went to London to the Motel Rocks Christmas blogger party. It was hosted at a Bar called Floripa, which was a fabulous location - the interior was personalized very nicely to fit the party. The goodie bags were packed as Christmas presents which were given on the way out, so sweet! Let me take you through the evening: First me and Kaori got our hair done by the celebrity hair dresser Lee Stafford. He and his team were really nice and funny, AND they managed to do the impossible - curl my hair in a way that it actually lasts! Whenever I do it myself, my hair just goes straight and flat after a few hours. All their products and tools were bright pink, so tempting! If you want to visit his website and learn more, click here. We then got our make-up done with the products of myface.cosmetics (link). I loved the eyeshadow they used on me, and the mascara made my lashes so much longer and bolder :D I felt like a princess after having my hair and make-up done, haha! After that we went to pick out an item we'd like from their collection, it was a very hard choice as the things were really nice! The way we had to choose was to actually write down 3 items in the order of preference and then they'd send us one, so I actually have no idea what I will get - love the feeling of mystery!
Me and Tolu from Fashinate Me (click). Was so nice to meet you!
There was also an opportunity to get fake eyelashes done with Eyelure, but me and Kaori didn't do this. Looked fun though! Obviously we had to go and try out the crazy photobooth, and it seemed like we were not the only ones - we waited for ages in the queue! Below are the results (I'm wearing Santa Claus reindeer ears by the way) We hung around this table for quite a while - not only to check out the shoes, the jewellery and the catalogues, but also to get some chips and chocolate! Later we  decided to take a look at the new collection which should be in store very soon. These pants are not something new, though, but I couldn't resist snapping a photo of them - I first fell in love with them when I saw them on a fashion blogger around half a year ago! There were quite a lot of "fun" dresses and tops, such as this one which is all covered with colorful decorations, or long-sleeved crop tops with bright shoutout signs on the front.
I was crazy about the studded leather items, there were jackets, dresses and pants.

We found these cute tiny shorts - love the design but I'd be too scared to wear them out!
They had a lot of these kind of ballerina dresses with a skinny bustier top and wide, nice flowing skirt part, i was particularly interested in this one. A large part of their new collection contained sequined dresses, they were all bodycon and in different colors. What I found interesting was the fact that they were actually made of velvet, with sequins on top. I was also crazy about these kind of details I found on a number of items - lately I'm all about shiny and clear details like these! I think the first one is a playsuit and the other one was a dress. After the party, me and Kaori tried to run to the tube as fast as possible (in my Jeffrey Campbells!) to make it to the 9:50 train back to the uni, but soon we realized that if we missed it we could eat sushi at the Waterloo station, and as soon as the thought came in our heads, we slowed the pace down a little.....  How do you like the packaging of the gifts, by the way? I think it's so cute! As planned, we missed the train and spent some time at Wasabi in Waterloo station. Such a good ending to the day! I love the gifts I got! They're all courtesy of myface.cosmetics and are worth around 60-70£, crazy, right? I felt so appreciated yesterday, haha! I wasn't so sure about the yellow/green eyeshadow at first, but when I tried it out, it was actually very golden and the green was very subtle. I'm so glad I got these gifts because I was thinking about buying something from this brand after they did my make-up. My two favorites from the gifts are these two, simply because I'm crazy about purple. I'm already wearing the nail polish and I'm very pleased with the look. I might show you a picture later!

Overall, I had so much fun at the event and I've never seen so many well-dressed people in one place, it was crazy! I've also never experienced something like this before, so it was quite new and relaxing to be in an environment where everyone talks about blogging - in normal daily life, it's not such a common thing, so people are confused, they also ask you weird questions and look at your weirdly when you take photos, but there it was all normal. I also learnt some things, such as the fact that most bloggers actually have business cards which they exchange when they meet one another. It's probably time to get some soon as well! Hope you enjoyed the post, I will go to sleep early tonight, goodnight ♥
