London, here I come!
It has been four slow months since I in January was told that I was accepted for a transfer from Sicily to London, but now the day is finally here, I look forward to new destination routes and meeting new colleagues. But first, a couple of days in London as blogger and influencer @pilotmaria
I have a fantastic exciting collaboration together with @LOVcosmetics that I have a long-term collaboration with as a brand ambassador. I love everything about this L.O.V and what they stand for, already at the first meeting with them in July last year, it felt like the perfect fit. They are a makeup brand that targets Girl Power and empowering women to get out there! Bright colors and edgy touch to ´Wear Your Power´I love the philosophy, the message and everybody that I have met during our meetings and shots, I am so excited to introduce L.O.V and my feminine side with you all.
This April we have a campaign that I am extra passionate about, I have tried one of their new products ‘Aura Glow Primer’ (link) a primer that I use as it is or under my foundation, it gives the skin glow at the same time protects it with SPF 15, anti-pollution, perfect for my new life in London and anti-wrinkle (yes it was just my birthday so yes 😉
It was a full day in London along with @kirstyrwilliams, @vickyrouine videographer, @kariskennedyphotography photographer and @mellysophiamua makeup artist, I had such fantastic day together with this amazing team and I can not wait to share the video and photos with you all!
Later that evening I met up with Justin @pilottopilot and his wife Christina @medschoolscope and they are so sweet! I am so happy and thankful for everybody that Instagram connects me with. Justin and I did a podcast together last summer where he interviewed me about my route becoming a pilot, (listen to the podcast here) and he was just as nice in real life as he was talking to over Skype when we did the podcast, I can not recommend enough that you go to his Instagram page @pilottopilot or www.pilottopilothq.com enough, he’s doing such an amazing work!
During my first time in London I stayed at luxury ME London @melondonhotel a five-star hotel in central London, it’s not where I will permanently live but I could definitely get used to the delicious buffet styled breakfast (or get it to your room breakfast) the surprises they left me every evening, like champagne, fruits, and crackers to having my room ´night time ready´when I came back from a city stroll, slippers and cosy lightning prepared in my room. Or to have one of London’s best rooftop bars ´Radio´ only an elevator ride away. Read more and see more photos of Me London here (link)
My last day, or rather the night before my last day, I met up with my friend since fifteen years back Elisabeth who was invited to a @butterflytwist event at super trendy ´Sexy Fish´ in Mayfair, London, which I was her ´plus 1´to. What girl does not love shoes and we were in shoe heaven! I love Butterfly Twists new collection together with @harleyvnewton I can’t wait to wear my new super cute ballerinas, and it was great to meet more Londoners for my future move.
Given that I was only in London for four days, I definitely got the feeling of how it feels to be a so-called “influencer” (I never really understood that term but it’s something people sometimes refer me as so I guess I need to get used to it) in a big city where everything is moving at fast city pace and exciting events, it’s definitely something I look forward to exploring more, but now I’m off home to Sweden for a few days to meet my family and friends that I’ve only just met on short visits when I’ve been home a day or two in the past, commuting back to Sweden from Sicily has not been easy and some friends I’ve not seen for years, thank you for being with me and being the best friends ever, you know who you are.
Hope you look forward to following my new chapter of life as much as I look forward to sharing it with you.
