Lisa Eldridge's Face Paint Book Launch

Lisa Eldridge Face Paint The Story Of Make Up Book Launch at Liberty London Lisaeldridge.com
When I saw Lisa Eldridge's post about her book launch, I immediately signed up to attend the pre-book launch at +Liberty London. After two days of (not so) patiently waiting, I received a mail saying it was sold out. I was really gutted but decided to attend her event at another venue. Thankfully the stars aligned and a couple of days before the Liberty event, I got a confirmation saying that I was on the 5p.m list. Wohooo! My joy knew no bounds because getting to meet Lisa was a dream I never thought would ever come true. I braved all of London's transport mayhem to make it just in time for the launch. The event was held at the beautiful and cosy Heritage Suite in Liberty - the setting truly felt personal. 

A few minutes after we settled down with a champagne in hand, Lisa arrived looking ethereal in a black outfit to talk about her debut book Face Paint: The Story of Makeup. She talked about the research that went behind the book and how she was involved in every aspect of it. It's really fascinating to hear her talk because she's so passionate about the history of makeup and how it's impacted women over the centuries. She can really entrance you with her in-depth knowledge about the origins of makeup and trends. 

Once the event was over, she greeted everyone personally and signed their copy. Walking up to her was the most nervous moment of my life. I have an idiotic smile plastered over my face in the picture I took with her. I momentarily forgot my name and fumbled when she complimented my lipstick shade. But yes, it felt euphoric and I couldn't wipe that smile off my face for a long, long time. Dreams do come true, people. They certainly do. I'll leave you with the pictures from the event.

Photo Diary: Enchanting Strasbourg

Things To Do In Strasbourg and Petite France Notre Dame Cathedral"The more I contemplate the façade of the Cathedral, the more I am convinced of my first impression that its loftiness is linked to its beauty."- Goethe

Strasbourg, which sits right on the border of France and Germany is a picturesque medieval city that is full of canals and cobbled lanes. The emblem of the city is the magnificent Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Strasbourg, a red sandstone Gothic structure that is an architectural masterpiece. Petite France, the historical centre of the city is an otherworldly beauty with half-timbered houses and spectacular waterways. Dining options are stupendous, you can choose from the local Alsatian fare or head to a winstub for a boozy evening. This bewitching city offers a breathtaking sensory and gastronomical experience.
