Filming in Paris with Prince Cassius

This week has been pretty exciting as I was involved in a very cool project (which will all be revealed eventually) in which I invited five top bloggers from across Europe to Paris where they took part in the making of a short promotional clip for flash sale super site vente-privee.com! For the moment, all I can say is that American Apparel clothing was worn, ribbons were clipped in curly hair and there was a very cool pair of retro roller skates involved…

The night preceeding the photoshoot, we were all invited to dinner at Les Ombres, a delicious restaurant hidden amongst my favourite museum, Le Musee Branly (you can find all sorts of traditional artwork, fashion and jewellery from all corners of the world including Polynesia, Mexico and New Zealand!).

Amongst the guests were London’s fashionista and socialite, the fabulous Prince Cassius, hilarious German blogger Rene Schwabe of Style Ranking and the beautiful Belen who is behind the very popular Spanish blog Balamoda. We dined with a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower and feasted on Norwegian smoked salmon accompanied by a glass of Veuve Clicquot followed by crispy, wafer thin Maxims potatoes and a melt in the mouth steak with a delicious chocolate and passion fruit slice to end the evening. Hence why today I am anxiously searching for a late-night aquabike session.

The evening was great fun and the following day at the photoshoot even more hilarious! More coming very soon so watch this space…

Working with L.K.Bennett & Five Five Fabulous

L.K.Bennett sale

Last week I was lucky enough to find myself working on a very exciting campaign for our forthcoming flash sale with L.K.Bennett on vente-privee.com! As this is the first sale we are running with the brand, we decided to celebrate with a video competition in partnership with one of my all time favourite blogs, Five Five Fabulous.

Having worked with the brand on deciding a suitable look and brief for the video and after multiple brainstorming sessions with vente-privee.com‘s internal creative teams, we selected our favourite storyboard which you can check out in the video trailer below and on the Five Five Fabulous blog.  During the shoot, I also invited FFF blogger Reem Kanj to Paris where she was covering all the action behind-the-scenes and I really recommend heading over to her blog for a sneak peek which includes some fabulous shots of the shoes featured in the sale… you’ll find an incredible 50 – 70% off the styles and having had a little look for myself, I have to admit there’s already a list of 3 pairs for which I’ll definitely be setting my alarm clock.

For a little head’s up, the sale will open at 8am this Saturday (27th of April) on vente-privee.com and last for a very limited time so it’s best to sign on early to snag the pair you really want – these pieces will certainly not be hanging around for long!

Worth noting: You do need to register to the website in order to access the sales but I really think it’s worth the 30-second registration form as you’ll have access to some incredible brands with new sales each day offering discounts you won’t find easily elsewhere!

And if you want an extra little treat, there’s a great competition running on FFF right now with the chance to win a £200 gift voucher to spend on L.K.Bennett‘s online store.  Stay tuned!
