The festive season brings lots of fashion, shopping, partying and a whole lot getting merry. Last week saw team s two hit three events, from a fashion launch to a beauty launch and finally the week’s penultimate event OK! Nigeria‘s Christmas party. A whole lot of canapés, champagne, mulled wine, schmoozing and instagram photos later, we thought we’d share our events with you.
Kelly Simpkin ‘She Wears a Crown’ Collection Launch
Myself (Mpona) and fellow FAB Blogger Maria kicked of the week by going to Mayfair and checking out up and coming designer Kelly Simpkin’s collection. A timeless collection with lots of super cute pieces and very wearable items. Maria was obsessed with this gorgeous blue coat with fur trimmings, while I was totally in love with this leather playsuit in the collection that looked like an oversized leather jacket that had been turned into a playsuit – snazzy.
A couple of glasses of wine later, we’d talked to the designer, who is very lovely may I add, and met two fellow bloggers who we found we had a lot in common – small world. Now I can’t tell you what happened next because it’s technically not part of the job – but lets just say there were a whole lot of cocktails and cheeky banter that followed.
Marks and Spencer Beauty Collection Launch
Next up on the event list was M&S’s beauty collection launch, which I unfortunately got abandoned and left to schmooze and share canapés with
no one (eherm thanks Sinem). Luckily I managed to drag a friend along.
The collection was gorgeous, from make-up collections to perfumes and gift packages, the collection was ready and raring to go for Christmas. I wanted everything from the Autograph to the Lola Make Up collection, but you know there’s only so much you can have. Thankfully there were goodie bags, and well let’s just say Christmas came early for me – lipsticks, nail varnishes, body scrubs and scented candles I was well and truly a happy bunny!
OK! Nigeria Christmas Party
And then rolled our final event, on Sunday (because you know, Sunday’s the new Friday) Team S Two headed to central London to party with all the very important people of the Nigerian media industry, celebrities from sports, film and entertainment – makes you wonder what made the rest of Team S Two come along? Sinem? Maria?
Well we got our hottest outfits on, hit the red carpet in style, got in some champagne before hitting the tequila and the dance floor. The night was fun, lots of dancing (we witnessed multiple dance offs), good music – they had Afrobeats, South African house and all of Maria’s favourite ratchet music going and it was a good place to meet some of the media players, with comedian Eddie Kadi in attendance along with footballer Michael Essien, CEO Dancer Nqobile and many more.
Oh and did I mention we even got to hit the red carpet – yes we did!
Christmas is indeed a wonderful time of the year, with parties left right and centre…so keep up with Team S Two’s endeavours for more of our
Team S Two
Have a Merry Christmas
