It's rare I attend events despite the many generous and tempting offers I receive; I'm not a Londoner which means it quite often costs me triple figures to attend and that's even with my Young Persons Railcard (expiry is looming, ahhh)!
But a few weeks ago I grabbed the early train down to the big city and headed over to QVC's headquarters for a small event hosted by the TV station and Clarisonic.
This was one opportunity I didn't want to miss out on, when else was I going to get the chance to go behind the scenes of QVC and even have a test shoot myself?
Unlike most events this was an intimate affair with just myself (obviously), Ambarina from Beauty Passionista and Rowena from Cosmetic Candy.
Here we are below with QVC presenter, Julian Ballantyne.
We were given a backstage tour of the studios, watched a live show and then had a spot of lunch with make-up artist and Clarisonic brand ambassador, Daniel Sandler.
One of the reasons I wanted to attend this event was because it was for the Clarisonic, a product I already own, use and love everyday.
Anyway, we then got to take part in a 7 minute test shoot/mock interview each with the presenter which was filmed and recorded.
I can't tell you how nervous I was but it was great fun and because I knew already all about the Clarisonic my answers were surprisingly coherent.
I would show you the video but I'm somewhat of a technophobe and have no idea how to copy from DVD on to my computer!
I've been meaning to review the Clarisonic for yonks, I've used it for almost a year now so I think it's about time don't you?
Anyway I will get around to that but I just wanted to share some snaps with you from my day and tell you about a very exciting giveaway I'm holding tomorrow (this post may be a clue)!
