So you may or may not know that I am a Glitter Artist for The Gypsy Shrine. As part of my job I get to take part in events hosted by big companies, such as Budweiser and Missguided, to glitter up all the beautiful faces involved.

My most recent event, and favourite to date, is the Carnaby Christmas Carnival on November 9th. This was the turning on of the Christmas lights on Carnaby Street, London. We were employed by Sister, a PR company who put together this very exciting evening. Great job they did too!

We had our own pop up shop just off of Carnaby Street, giving complimentary glitter makeovers to members of the public. They were also giving out free popcorn and prosecco,. There was even a DJ, what more could you want?!

Woolly hats, puffer coats, red noses. That’s how you know the festive season is upon us. The atmosphere was amazing and everybody seemed to be in such great spirits. It was so nice to see everyone get together and be merry!

We started packing up at about 9 o’clock. It had been non stop for us since we started at 4. We had so much fun working together as a team and getting the chance to be as creative as we wanted.

Expect to see more posts about my jobs with the The Gypsy Shrine. In the meantime, check us out on Instagram or visit our website to see what we’re all about.

Thanks for reading!
