#Beautyredefined | Canberra Beauty precinct opening

Chaos. From the moment the doors opened at 9am to reveal the new beauty and wellness precinct. People of all ages flocked to the Canberra Centre to get their hands on goody bags, discounted products or to get a glimpse of some of the VIP guests. Lines were out the door, but the wait to get into all of the stores was most definitely worth it. 

The buzz in the air was palpable, the high energy being captured by the flashes of the many photographers. I myself was treated to a makeover, hand massage and champagne and chocolates. Essentially, I was in paradise! 

I was lucky enough to meet both Vogue Australia’s Beauty Editor Remy Rippon and Beauty Vlogger Shannon Harris aka shaaanxo. Remy was so bubbly and lovely and I asked her what her top 3 tips were to young women who aspired to be in her position. 

Remy Rippon's top 3 tips 

  • intern as everyone starts from the bottom
  • develop a great work ethic  
  • acquire a mentor. 
Shannon was just as lovely and bubbly and was also a little bit nervous which was humbling to see from someone with her fame. I also asked her for her advice on how to get to the top and she said "work hard to be passionate about what you do." As cliche as that sounds, it evidently works so there you have it ladies!

As part of the launch I attended the Sip and Scent masterclass. Scents and martinis  - what a combo! It was an elegant evening where Canberra’s ‘Martini Whisperer’ Phillip Jones and fragrance expert Dimitri Weber shared their best kept secrets at how to recreate the signature cocktail and how to enhance and heighten your senses to new and exciting scents. 

The session was interactive, informative and let's face it, a little bit boozy by the end of it - all in all an evening well spent! 

Thanks to Canberra Centre for having me and congratulations on a successful opening!
