The past Thursday I headed to the One & Only hotel to attend the 27pinkx high tea event, I was especially excited as I’ve heard many great things about the One & Only’s high tea, it was nothing short of my expectations and I was extremely impressed not only by the presentation of all the food but by the taste as well. It was a blogger’s paradise as many of the girls barley ate half of the goodies they so neatly set out in their plates in order to get that perfect Instagram photo.
At the event I had the honour of meeting and chatting to Khatija and Anjum the two sisters who had founded 27pinkx in 2012. The name of the company originated from Khatija’s nickname as a kid which started out as “Pinky” and eventually evolved into “Pinkx”, they used this nickname and added Anjum’s birthday which is the on the 27th and formed the name 27pinkx – such a cute story.
27pinkx provides for luxurious make-up storage and tools at affordable prices, their offices are based in Pretoria but their products can be purchased online, I’m obsessed with their products not only because it’s hot pink but also for the amazing quality. I had tremendous fun learning new techniques and how to best utilise the products, I even had some eye make-up applied and I’m slowly learning to perfect the look.
We each received a beautiful make-up storage box to take home with us and I even got a few extra brushes and eye-shadow palette. I had an amazing time, thank you to the 27pink team <3.
