If you follow me on instagram/Twitter, then you will probably have seen that I was lucky enough to win two tickets on Twitter to the TV BAFTAS last Sunday!! When I got the tweet from Mark Hill to say I had won two tickets I nearly hyperventliated. I then had the absolute panic of, what the hell am I going to wear?! The dress code was wedding/red carpet and I had seen a gorgeous beaded 1920’s inspired in Miss Selfridge the week before, but had nowhere to wear it to. Now I had the perfect excuse to buy it! The night before I painted my nails with the Nailgirls nailpolish in pink 5 and added the Barry M glitter in 349 Rose Quartz as an accent glitter!
I took my best friend from home, Robyn, and oh we had a ball. I met Robyn in London just after midday and we headed on over to the gorgeous Corinthia Hotel to meet the lovely Olivia and to pick up the tickets and a couple of generous MiracOILiscious goody bags! The hotel was stunning, and there were people have champagne afternoon teas and it looked perfect. We got the tickets and then mooched about and walked over to Covent Garden and managed to nab a street side table at Byron Burger! I had a yummy cheese burger, fries, and we shared a bottle of wine. The weather was glorious and it felt like we were on holiday, except we were all dolled up! It was quite a hot day so after our delicious dinner and drinks we freshened up our makeup, I changed into my heels and we went to watch some of the red carpet action.
All the surrounding streets were manic and shut off, and it was a great atmosphere to be a part of! Celebrities arrived and went into the theatre, and so we headed on in! Each seat had a bottle of Evian water and a box of Hotel Chocolat BAFTA inspired chocolates, which were adorable and delicious! The ceremony itself was so interesting and seeing all the celebs in person was incredible, to think I was under the same roof as so many stars was just breathtaking!!
I was so caught up in all the excitement I kind of forgot to take photos of my outfit etc!
Did you do anything fun over the weekend? Have you ever been to a red carpet event?
