Picking up where we left off in my previous installment of last Wednesday’s evening antics, our second after dark destination was notoriously naughty nightspot The Box in Soho for the Maybelline Christmas Party. I was lucky enough to attend Maybelline’s festive soiree last year too and had extremely fond memories of the grooming opportunities they laid on for us. Well I’m pleased to report that in that respect, this time was possibly even better! The much anticipated (by me) pick n’ mix boxes stuffed with make up were my first port of call (even before the bar) and I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that I literally grabbed as much as I could carry. After that we headed to room number two where nail pros were poised to give guests the most A-MAZING manicures. Thought two tone or sparkly nails were exciting? Think again. At the Maybelline bash you could have your talons transformed into everything from penguins to polkadots.
By this point a drink was definitely in order so we scooped up a “Rocket Fuel” cocktail just in time to have something to sip while watching the incredible burlesque performance. Anyone who’s been to The Box will know that their infamous stage shows can be ever so slightly graphic. Thankfully that wasn’t the case on this occasion and we were treated to a dazzling display involving smoky eye make up, white feathers and rather more tasteful titillation/flesh flashing. As you might remember from my previous post, the evening involved a fair amount of party hopping so after one more trip to the pick n’ mix (natch) and a few minutes messing about with the various Maybelline props on display we were back in our Winter woolies and off to our next destination.
Love Ella. X
