It was Saturday morning, the sun was shining in deepest Notting Hill and my daughter and I were heading to the Bella & Beau, London launch. The new luxury children’s hair salon, recently opened by former Liberty X singer, Jessica Taylor, and cricketer husband, Kevin Pietersen, opened it’s doors to the ‘mini’ glitterati.
It was very much like the beauty launches of my beauty editor days, apart from this time my daughter was having all the treats, rather than me! Manicures were done by the fabulous Perfect 10 using Priti NYC and Priti Princess non-toxic nail polish, as well as Bella & Beau haircuts, face painting, scrummy cupcakes and ice cream served from Nina’s 1970′s Citroen van, and delicious fruit juices from The Detox Kitchen.
My own Priti Princess had her nails done (rainbow shades of course!), filled up on cupcakes, ice cream, sherbert space ships and bags of sweets. And the goody bags? A cut above the rest of course, with colouring books, bubbles, bouncy balls, jigsaw puzzles and more goodies.
We were there with Priti NYC’s founder and creator, Kim D’Amato, and BeautyMART’s Millie Kendall and her eight-year-old daughter (Canterbury Bells, the perfect blue nail polish, looked AMAZING on her nails!). The Priti Princesses had a ball, it was just a shame about the Cinderella moment last night, when all the polish had to be removed in time for the school bell this morning!
