The 19th of January I traveled on an YSL trip for for the event “YSL LOVES YOUR LIPS” as one of the spanish influencers to represent the brand in London.
I lodged in a fabulous hotel called the Ham Yard in Soho, which just like the neighborhood itself, full of culture, as the beautiful décor was covered in all types of marvelous artistic expressions ( my favorite ! ) . Naturally the first thing I did was taking photos,and nap in the beautiful room they put up for me. :)
The event took place in Shoreditch, East London and touches ground with some of the chicest bohemian looking individuals you’ll ever meet. I just moved from the area so going back I felt like my East-Londoner self again.
The venue resembled a warehouse club from the 70's, very Andy Warhol. It was full of beautiful and interesting individuals, one of them, my “plus one” and best friend Inga, who lives there. It was so nice to touch base with all my old friends, it's like they say, the people make the place!
They began the events presentation by filming Cara Delevingne exiting her car and walking into the building, and up on the stage. She looked a little uneasy with everyone watching her, but then again, who likes public speaking, I know I don't. ( really...don't …) I had the pleasure of meeting the Delevingne sisters in person. Poppy I met a few times, but this was my first interaction with Cara. The first meet did not disappoint, she was full of positive energy, which was enhanced upon her capturing my scarf. The fox fur isn’t only fashionable; it’s also Cara bait, who knew? My scarf was a big hit. As I mingled it was passed around, making them feel fabulous and they looked it, too.
Amongst these were my friends Henry Conway, fashion writer and the Topman Ambassador, photographer Alistair Grant, model Edie Campbell and Bip Ling, the DJ, and blogger.
I had the pleasure of remaining most of the party in the VIP section, and followed the exciting event by going to the exclusive club Chiltern Firehouse, where you’ll find the most interesting A-lister’s, it’s quite the show!
My first day ended at 6 am, proving YSL a hell of a party planner.
The Second day in London, I went to the YSL Beauty presentation in Knighstbridge, and a make-up artist gave me the YSL look, using the products they had displayed the night before. It removed all traces of the previous night, and that was essential. :)
I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to my host, Yves Saint Laurent Beauty whom provided for an unforgettable weekend filled with bohemians, celebrities, dancing, and of course, make-up!

Next day at the YSL beaute training presentation
and a make-up artist gave me the YSL look!
My favorite product was the CC cream by YSL, which visibly corrects
the appearance of skin tone irregularities immediately
and all the new metallic gradient eye palette inspired by the 60's disco nights.
