Kiehl's "Save the Donkeys" event!
By Tina A. - October 27, 2011
Guess who lost their blogging mojo lately... yep, that would be me - but I can assure you ladies that this blogger is back in full swing, and attending events while she's at it!!!
So, last night Kiehl's put together a lovely event at Hondos Center in Glifada, launching their new "Save the Donkeys" campaign! Kiehl's is a brand, that's quite well known for their humanitarian and eco-friendly initiatives in the countries that they are active in and this event was a prime example. Along with ΕΣΠΙ (Hellenic Society for Equine Welfare), they are raising awareness of the abuse that these lovely creatures are often subject to in our country.
A beauty brand for a good cause? No reason not to attend, right?
Especially when I learned that two lovely fellow bloggers, Evi from CBSG5861 and Arietta from Stripes and Scarlets were also going to attend! :)
The event was really fun, the girls and I strolled around, joked about the event model, Mr. Skeleton (who's wearing a t-shirt designed by Orsalia Parthenis for the event - Deux Hommes also contributed their designs) and... hit the buffet, where there were tasty carrot-based "Donkita" cocktails and carrot cupcakes to be had!
From a beauty bloggers' point of view... omg, it wasn't far from heaven: we learned about a ton of products, had the chance to try them on and even left with a couple of custom-chosen samples; all thanks to Giota, who was more than willing to help us out and answer all of our questions!!! I can now say that I left even more intrigued by this brand, seeing what goes into their products and familiarising myself with their philosophy.

Before I close this, let me mention a couple of words about the cause. Donkeys and small horses have long taken part in our agricultural history as patient animals, more than helpful in everyday life. Nowadays, their population has drastically decreased, and often the remaining animals are destined to be killed for their meat or abused in a number of tourist attractions. It's important to put a stop to this abuse and care for their living conditions. If you'd like to learn about ways you can help, you can visit EΣΠΙ's site: www.greekhorseprotection.gr.
All in all, we had a wonderful time!!! For more pics and celebrity sightings, as well as our...OOTD's, you can check out Patricia's blog, Fashion &Art, as well as Evi's and Arietta's posts!!!
***A huge thank you to Arietta for kindly sharing her pics with us, I really appreciate that doll!
See you all soon!
