Yesterday my friends and I attended Stylist Magazine’s Live event at Olympia where they celebrated everything lifestyle related. It was my first time visiting not only Olympia but also an event of that magnitude.
We arrived around mid-day and started off by attending one of the lectures by the Mac twins. Their “Sort your Sh*t Out: The Truth About Gut Health” talk was super interesting and attracted a lot of women who all came to listen to the importance of taking care of your inner self. All talks were 30 minutes long, which I thought was I good cut off time as there was so much going on everywhere.
While you had the option of purchasing VIP tickets that included pampering options (such as beauty treatments etc.) we decided to go for the standard £15 ticket. Our tickets did, however, give us access to the Stylist Catwalk, a fashion show sponsored by Babyliss. The show showcased the latest trends of the fall/winter season and included stylish yet affordable pieces, with the exception of an item or two. All items came from brands such as ASOS, H&M and Top Shop to name a few, making it easily accessible.
The event had many pop-up shops spread out throughout the venue, selling everything from beauty products and shoes to accessories and different kinds of teas.
Unlike other events that I have attended in the past, there were no goodie bags offered, however, all guests received a complementary Gin&Tonic upon arrival and the chance to win prizes at different booths. Overall it was a fun day spent with good people!
Do you attend events? If, so what’s your favorite thing(s) about them?
