Olay Regenerist Launch Event

I know I haven’t blogged in what seems like forever, but I’ve been so busy with exams these past few weeks and I’m still busy actually but I’ve set aside some time today to upload some pictures from the amazing Olay Regenerist Launch event. I’ve been dying to share these pictures so I hope you enjoy.


It all started with a invite from Riverbed a PR agency, inviting me to Johannesburg for the event. After a quick phone call and lot’s of excitement, they arranged for my flight and accommodation to be booked. I flew the following Wednesday morning for the event Wednesday evening and then flew back home the next day.

The launch was held at the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel in Sandton and I was completely blown away by everything Olay planned for the evening.


We were welcomed by the best dressed promo girls I have every seen (seriously, does anyone know where I can get their dresses?) and found our name tags on this black and gold name tag tree, how cute?Fotor1103162011

Welcome drinks and yummy canapes were served, while we all mingled and took a few pics. None of us knew what to expect but we were all really excited for night ahead.

We were then invited to into another room where the lovely Nicola Cooper gave an inspiring talk on how aging doesn’t necessarily have to slow you down and showed some incredible examples of older woman still walking the runway and perusing their dreams in the fashion and the entertainment industry.

After Nicola’s talk we turned around, only to be surprised by the coolest gold and black painted dancers. Check out my video below:

These painted dancers then lead us into another dark room that was lit up with ballerinas. The dance acts were amazing. Olay definitely pulled out all the stops to impress us that evening. See ballerina video below:

When the lights came on we saw that the room was decorated with all of the products from the Olay Regenerist Range. We were then presented with a short video with some insight into what Olay is trying to achieve with this new range and how all these wonderful products assist in making you look younger and more radiant.

The evening ended off with a female DJ on the decks (loved that!) while more drinks and delicious sweet treats were served. The night was a complete success and so much fun. I loved Nicola’s talk and finding out more about the Olay Regenerist range and everything Olay is doing to help woman look and feel beautiful.
