Hey peeps how are you all?
Have you ever had something happen to you that you wanted to pinch yourself and cry tears of joy all at once? I had one of those moments last week, when I was contacted by MastercardUK and told I had won their competition to the Cannes Film Festival. As I sit here typing this I can’t believe that it actually happened!
An all expense trip to Nice for me and a guest, to experience the festival and attend the film premiere of Mad Max, which I really enjoyed. I love sci fi, action type movies so it was right up my alley. If you’re into that sort of thing, then I highly recommend it!
I had several priceless moments on this trip, from being picked up at the airport in the UK to pulling up in front of the Majestic Barriere
To choosing a gown; which by the way I and the other competition winners got to keep!
Every detail was taken care of, as there were hosts and hostesses at the hotel to answer any questions and show us the way. The food was incredibly delicious at every restaurant we ate at.
My cousin and I had a bit of free time before the premiere so we decided to take a stroll to the old part of the town. The views were simply breathtaking!
After our walk we came back to get changed for the evening festivities, with the help of a hair stylist and makeup artist each! A little cocktail soiree was arranged for all the winners and it was a great way to tell us what to expect whilst at the premiere.
My cousin and I walked the red carpet and it was an experience. Something I had never done before! I got to hand it to those who walk the red carpet as part of their job, it can be daunting. Wondering whether everything is in place. Is there lipstick on your teeth? Or something!
I was blown away by the attention to detail Mastercard put into this event and all I have to say is THANK YOU! This experience reminded me that ‘life is like a box of chocolates you never know what you’re going to get’ 😉
As you can tell I was incredibly excited and grateful. Hope you enjoyed reading and let me know what your priceless moment has been so far.
As always, thank you for reading, commenting and following.
Until next time, be well
