PANDORA x Cosmopolitan Q&A 'Style Session'

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to get my name onto the guest list for PANDORA's 'Style Session' with Cosmopolitan, with an exciting Q&A with Sairey Stemp, Fashion Editor of Cosmopolitan!

P.S. Poor iPhone quality photos ahead - sorry!

So when the event came around this week, I hopped on a train up to London and headed straight to PANDORA's flagship store on Oxford Street.

Greeted with a much-appreciated glass of fizz (travelling around London isn't for the feint-hearted and the bubbles definitely took the edge off), I was escorted upstairs to the event area along with all the other ladies attending.

Once upstairs we were left to cast our eyes over PANDORA's newest Autumn collection of jewellery, mingle, and explore the treats on offer.

Ladies from Smashbox cosmetics, and Nails Inc. were doing a fantastic job of pampering everyone, with the option to treat yourself to a fresh manicure or have your makeup done. As well as the choice to have a luxury hand massage from Crabtree & Evelyn - pure bliss!

To one side of the room, a barman was serving delectable cupcakes, Mojitos and, of course, Cosmopolitans - I see what you did there! *winks knowingly*

Whilst all this was going on, Sairey Stemp gave everyone some serious style tips for the season ahead - and why wouldn't you listen to her, this is one lady who definitely knows her stuff! Here's my personal highlights from the knowledge she shared with us:

- Autumn '17 will let shades of red take centre stage, with variations of the shade ranging from pink to burgundy
- Experiment with textures. Velvet is definitely on the rise on the high street and you should grab statement pieces to add a touch of luxury and depth to your looks.
- Colours will be everywhere! Have fun experimenting with vibrant shades - black is always going to be a style staple, but embracing a splash of colour here and there can make you feel more positive.
- The heritage look is going to be huge. Tweed and Prince of Wales check in particular will make a bold statement.
- In terms of jewellery, we're moving away from minimalism. AW17 will be all about layering up your chains and bracelets, and of course multiple earrings (for those of us brave enough to face the piercings!). 
- Ring stacking will still be very much a thing, but it's important to mix metals, textures and sizes for a unique look that's personal to you.

I feel like I was already excited for the colder weather ahead, allowing me to fully transition to my autumnal wardrobe, but this event has only made me wish for a temperature drop sooner! I'm ready to don my comfy jumpers, and am particularly excited to inject some red accents into my wardrobe.

Upon leaving, I was gifted a little goodie bag filled with October's issue of Cosmopolitan (perfect for the return train journey) and a gorgeous glamour kit from PANDORA - which I'll probably keep safe for my next bucket-list adventure abroad. 

I had a highly enjoyable evening and it was fun to do something out of the ordinary on a Thursday night, instead of my usual Netflix & bed. Though I must admit, I was very ready for my duvet when I finally arrived home.

Which fashion trend are you most looking forward wearing to this autumn? Let me know below!

Until next time..
