Happy Sunday everyone! It’s not everyday I get the chance to get glammed up and host a party but that’s exactly what I did last Sunday. House of Fraser invited me to host my own BAFTA TV party and sent through some pretty amazing goodies to ensure the party was a success. I love watching award shows, especially the BAFTA’s and I love to see what everyone is wearing and who wins the awards.
So to help me get party ready, House of Fraser sent through some bestsellers from Lancôme, including the Miracle Cushion Foundation which is my new favourite and two gorgeous lipstick choices. As well as a gorgeous navy wrap dress from Oasis with swallows on, some champagne, cocktail glasses and ingredients to make my own HOFtail – AKA one of the nicest cocktails I’ve ever tasted! It’s House of Fraser’s signature cocktails and is the perfect blend of sweet and sour. If you want to make it yourself then here’s the recipe:
- Strain 1 egg white into a mixing glass
- 1.5oz of dry gin
- 3/4oz lemon juice
- 2-3 raspberries
- 1/2oz simple syrup
- Dry shake
- Add ice then shake again for 30 seconds
It was so nice to get glammed up and enjoy a few cocktails in the garden before heading inside to watch the awards and take bets on who would win each category. Plus swooning over the fact Justin Timberlake and Josh Hartnett were both there looking incredibly handsome. So thank you to House of Fraser for helping me host such a fun party and allowing me to wear a gorgeous dress rather than my usual PJs to watch TV in.
Did you watch the TV BAFTA’s? Who was your best dressed from the night?
