What to wear to an afternoon tea | Lourdes Gio

Hello my fellow readers,

I hope you had a good start of 2018, I was sick all throughout its first week but I'm ok now. Since its a new year, I am going to start and post weekly and I'm also working for an award that includes blogging and I will tell you about that in a future post.

Everybody loves afternoon tea right? I mean, I know I do! To close off 2017, together with my family, I went for afternoon tea at the Corinthia Palace Hotel in Attard. Its beautiful! I only have been there once before when I was a kid but its even more nicer then I remember it. I always like to hear stories from my grandma about the place, because she was the first seamstress they had, only the best!

For this event, I wanted to dress up a bit but also be comfortable. Comfortable is always the number one thing I look for when digging inside my wardrobe for an outfit. Although high heels may not be the ideal comfortable wear, a soft sweathshirt is.

Top: New Look, Asos. They just put it on sale now too so you can get it for even less.
Trousers: New Look. Not the exact ones but still very cute.
Heels: First Sight. Not the exact ones but they are black stillettos so no complaints.
Jacket: BHS. This one's the most similar that I could find. But if you go around in shops you'll find similar ones for sure.
Earings: Accessorize. something smaller but similar.
Bag: Michael Kors. I got it as a gift.
Hat: Tally Weijl. Pretty similar to mine.
Lipstick: Ebay. My beloved matte liquid lipstick.

Melita Pharmacy, St. Julians - Bloggers event | Lourdes Gio

Hello my fellow readers,

I was invited to attend to a blogger event at Melita Pharmacy in St. Julians. When we entered we were greeted by the amazing team of Melita and were offered some nibbles and drinks. I loved reconnecting with and meeting Maltese bloggers.

This event was held to show us all the new products and ranges available at the Pharmacy. Below you can find a list of these:

They have also just brought to Malta the brand Wet n Wild which I am so grateful for as I love this brand, they have very cheap makeup and its of very good quality. 

These are some photos I took on the day: 

And some photos that they took of us bloggers: 

Thank you for the goodie bag, I had already started testing some of these products out:

And this is what I bought, will definitely go again and buy some more items:

I love the highlighter, and the lipstick has such a gorgeous colour.

Above all I would like to thank Melita Pharmacy for the invite and the lovely night, had so much fun!

Charles and Ron Fashion Show - Amare Argentum

Hello my fellow readers,

On the 30th of September I attended the Charles and Ron fashion show at Birkirkara Square. The event began with the two Birkirkara bands playing together and later on in the evening the fashion show started.

Charles and Ron showed the Autumn/Winter collection which goes by the name of Amare Argentum. The collection was filled with colours but the most colours that stood up where the blues and purples.

I love how there are a lot of different materials in the collection and how a lot of items are versatile and can be worn both during the day and night. The print of Maltese filigree was also used on most of the garments. I really like how they included lace, sequins and tulle in the collection. Oh! and the bags and shoes are to die for <3

I loved every thing but these next ones are my favourites:

A big thanks to jciapparaphotography / for the above photos.

This is what I wore for the show:

As always the duo impressed all of us. It was my first time seeing this collection in person and I was amazed, its even nicer from the pictures. I would like to congratulate Charles and Ron for their hard work and also on the newest (and previous) collection that they just showed in New York and Los Angeles.
