Couture Crush Press Launch

I’ve been very lucky to have attended quite a few blogger events over the past few days, and last night saw the press launch of new brand, Couture Crush. I had been particularly excited about this event ever since I received the email telling me and inviting me to it, as I really liked the sound of what this brand was about and the plan for the evening. Couture Crush are a website that allow you to “Seek. Sell. Switch” vintage, pre-loved or new designer and vintage accessories, such as bags, shoes and sunglasses.

I met up with the lovely Fi from North Western Beauty and we made our way to Nando’s to meet up with Cat from CLLRS and Fran from The Francesca Diaries. It was great to meet up with these lovely girls again, even though I’d only seen Fi and Cat the day before! We had a good natter over some lovely chicken, (I was obviously the unhealthiest out of the four, ordering mash, chips and halloumi cheese as my sides while the others opted for salad!), before making our way to the venue. As we were there a little early we decided to have a look in Harvey Nichols and obviously our inner beauty blogger came out and we all began spouting mini reviews and gazing longingly at various make up brands.

When we got to the venue we presented our invitations, or VIP pass as I like to call them, and headed downstairs into the The Circle Club. We were given a free champagne cocktail, which I didn’t drink as I’m not a lover of wine or anything similar, but it was a nice thought! We all began chatting among ourselves and to some of the other bloggers that were there too and then Rachel from Lost In Lipstick joined us. The seats all ran along the walls, curving at the corners so it was quite difficult to talk in a straight line! Fortunately some room became free on one of the corners so we moved down to be able to hold a conversation between us all! 

Canapés were brought round, and being the classy lady that I am, I bit my tongue as I tried to eat them and let out a big “OW”. So much for being aloof and glamorous… Anyway, after eating the canapés we started on the cupcakes. I love cupcakes, so this was a great touch I thought. A dance troop had come along to provide some entertainment by dancing along to some of Beyonce’s best tracks, slut drops and all!

After receiving our goody bags filled with samples and a product from the website, and with the night coming to a close, we said our goodbyes and headed home. I had such a lovely night; being able to make some new friends within the blogging community and having a good chat with those I already had, I really enjoyed it and had such a laugh. I’m excited to see what this brand will be doing next! Let me know in the comments if you went too!

Thanks for reading,
