Victoria’s Secret - One of my favourite brands for as long as I can remember. I adore all that they do, and of course, I live in their lingerie. I have been watching the Victoria’s Secret Runway Show on TV for as long as I can remember, too- It is always so fun to watch, and the outfits and models are just beyond amazing!

It has been a long time dream of mine to attend the show. I definitely never expected to get this chance, but I DID! And it was AMAZING. I headed to New York with the Victoria’s Secret team for a week of fun activities with VS before actually heading backstage & then to the show.

We got to visit the amazing Victoria’s Secret Angel Suite on 5th Ave, attend an event at The Plaza hotel where we got to preview the new Mary Katrantzou x Victoria’s Secret Collection (the floral patterns are so gorgeous), do a Victoria’s Secret Workout in VSSport’s Gear with a VS Trainer, got to get our hair done by Conair & Makeup done by Charlotte Tilbury in the Beauty Suite at the Plaza Hotel, and have a fun night with one of my favourite Angels, Jasmine Tooks, for a pizza making night! Not everything was captured in hi-res, so you can see everything on my IG Stories

Then, the real dream began. We got to head backstage before the Victoria’s Secret 2018 Runway Show, where we got to see the Angels getting their hair & makeup done and say hello to our favourites. It was insane! They are just as gorgeous and kind as they all seem in their social media outlets…All so happy & just glowing! The makeup was done by Charlotte Tilbury, and honestly, her makeup is my favourite because it is all about looking natural & glowy- Everything is created to enhance your natural beauty, which I just love.

Then it came to the actual show - Walking into the runway show, my heart was beating a million miles a minute- It was so surreal to be in the spot where I have watched so many times on TV! The show was full of energy and the music was beyond -Shawn Mendes was my highlight, and when he sang Winnie Harlow came out, which I just loved, because they are both Canadian! I got to meet Shawn Mendes afterwards at the after party, and he is just so kind, too (More you can see only on my IG Stories & more here)

It was a week that I will never forget, and a day that was definitely the most surreal & dreamy for me -

Thank you so much Victoria’s Secret for the amazing once in a life time opportunity!!!
