AX Circus

If you're a follower on Twitter, you might know that I was fortunate enough to win a pair of tickets to the #AXCircus event on Wednesday night. This was exciting for several reasons: first blog event, check. Chance to see some friendly faces, check. Chance to drink cocktails, check.


As I had to go straight from work, this is what I wore. Not so glamorous as many of my favourites, but I'm still rather pleased with the dress.

And what a treat did the lovely people from Etail PR & AX Paris have for us. Circus Bar in the West End had a whole bunch of hot acts for us to drool over AHEM I mean admire, and some rather lovely cocktails.

FITNESS in leather trousers. Oh yes.

The event was put on to celebrate AX Paris' first TV commercial ad, which goes live today on a whole host of channels, and that's a fair achievement for a brand which is 21 years of age. Needless to say, I did of course get a sneaky peek, so with that in mind, keep your eyes peeled!

I'll be honest and say I was a totally rubbish blogger and didn't take all that many pictures, I was too busy enjoying the rather lovely canap├ęs (tempura langoustine? YES PLEASE!) and catching up with some lovely faces. But it was a fabulous fabulous party, and muchos thanks from me to Etail and to AX PAris for allowing me to win tickets.

Also, thanks to Sarah for giving me my first Meat Market experience. Having scoffed a burger the night before at Harrison's Balham (which you can read about HERE) I opted for one of their dogs, a Ripper to be precise. I can't begin to tell you how good this was after several (ahem 7) cocktails and realising I hadn't eaten since mid-morning.

Pork hotdog, wrapped in bacon with chilli relish and sweet pickled cabbage (I think).

There were also some super generous goody bags, and I confess I lived on some of the contents on my especially busy Thursday...

Popchips and Coldpress AX Circus Goodie Bag
 Popchips are already a favourite of mine, and the Coldpress juice was suer yummy, a find and a half.
