our bee-you-tiful prize winners

our bee-you-tiful prize winners

when we launched our winter collection ‘wannabee’ back in february, we ran a competition for one veeeery lucky lady (and her bestie) to win a bee-you-tiful prize pack from us, as well as from kate luke photography, mi color salons and sally williams beauty and last weekend the lucky winners claimed their fabulous prize!

emma is the lucky duck who won our competition, and she chose her friend guili to come along for the (very glamorous) ride.
they started off their day at the maiocchi store in paddington, where they were met by dee, our designer, to select a frock each.
after lots of trying on and um-ing and ahh-ing! they both chose gorgeous navy floral frocks… it was a difficult choice!
the girls then popped up the road to micolor salon in paddington to have their hair done, and the gorgeous sally did their makeup... they both looked absolutely stunning and photo shoot ready.

then the girls met with kate, the photographer, for a one hour photo shoot around the local streets of paddington.

we think the results are just amazing, and couldn’t wait to share them with you.
keep your eyes peeled on our instagram page for our next competition for the launch of our spring collection in july.

we asked our lovely winner, emma a few questions about her bee-you-tiful experience...

have you ever won anything before?
i have never won anything this exclusive before, i couldn’t believe it when i got the message!

why did you choose guili as your bestie for the day?
giuli is a working mum and with a side business making beautiful wedding/birthday cakes. she spends a lot of time on her family and putting others needs before her own. i wanted to give her an opportunity for an afternoon of shopping and pampering.

how did you two meet?
giuli and i started working together in 2013. we don’t work together anymore but still keep in touch. she is an incredible person and friend to have on your team. 

which frock did you choose at maiocchi and why?
i chose the orchid road dress because it was very flattering for my shape. i loved a lot of the dresses in the shop, so it was very hard to pick just one.

have you ever had professional photos done before?
i have never had professional photos done before but i do love being in front of the camera, maybe a new profession?!

what did you girls do after the shoot?
we spent the evening in paddington at darling and co…. and i just wanted to say how much fun i had and to thank you once again for the opportunity. i have loved your store for a long time and follow quite a few of the ‘models’ you use on instagram. i’m very passionate about everything brisbane and supporting small businesses.
