Champagne, cupcakes and the official YBBF launch party

On Sunday, we celebrated the official launch of Your Beauty Best Friend with a gathering at Vista, the rooftop bar overlooking Trafalgar Square. The weather was very much in our favour and we spent a lovely sunny afternoon doing what we do best; drinking with friends and talking about beauty products.

We would like to say a big thank you to all who came along and supported us. We have a sneaking suspicion that some of the boys were more interested in the cupcakes than the cosmetics but that’s fine by us, we appreciated the moral support!

The rest, however, were hugely helpful – telling us their favourite brands, swapping product recommendations and offering feedback on how we can make the blog as interesting and useful to as many of our readers as possible.

Originally we were going to be seated in the gallery section, which has the best views, but we got bumped to an area a little further back. We were a bit miffed initially (don’t they know who we are?!) but when we found out it was to make space for Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt to be interviewed about their latest film The Edge of Tomorrow, we couldn’t really complain. Unfortunately by the time we had the bright idea of giving a YBBF cupcake to Emily’s PR people, she had already left. Darn it! Probably for the best though, a lot of champagne had been consumed by this point and no doubt we would have scared the poor woman….

The rather beautiful YBBF cupcakes

All in all it was a fantastic afternoon and we are excited to discuss all the feedback we received and get working on some new features that we hope you will all enjoy. For those of you who weren’t at the party we would still love to hear your opinions; send us an email to and let us know what you think of the blog and what you would like us to write about in the future. 

Last but not least, we must say an extra thank you to two people. Firstly to the lovely Kendra Grey, who sadly couldn’t make the party but who designed our wonderful blog banner, and secondly to Christa Georghiou for making the most incredible cupcakes for the event! Both very talented ladies indeed.
