L'Occitane Holidays & Store Opening Party

12/26/2014


I've been aching for days to write all about this amazing event I attended this Monday but I've also been literally aching - a three-day-long migraine kept me from looking at any type of screen without experiencing excruciating pain. I think I'm finally out of the woods and I'm really eager to show you everything I saw and to also give a little round-up of my collaboration with the lovely brand L'Occitane truly is. If you ever visit Sarajevo historic places are your number one spots to be but if a shopping spree is on your mind - you cannot really avoid shopping malls. A new-ish Sarajevo City Center shopping mall is the home of the latest, newest L'Occitane shop and that fact alone makes it a place I personally have a desire to visit. Slightly different than prevoiously visited, loved, worshipped L'Occitane stores (that was a Eat, Pray, Love analogy right there) - the new shop is placed on top of a purple carpet and is a beauty delicacy at its finest. I love the fact that it has several doors/openings which give an airy and approchable feel. Everything is nicely arranged but we're all accustomed to visually pleasing stimuli as soon as one enters a L'Occitane shop. All those delicious yet calming scents make the entire floor fragrant and I think that there's no need to 'sell' you L'Occitane - it's enough to visit them just once for them to remain somewhere in the back of your mind.

Danima vec izgaram od zelje da vam pisem o ovom krasnom druzenju na kojem sam bila ovog ponedeljka no posljednjih dana sam bukvalno bila onesposobljena i vecinu vremena vezana za krevet. Trodnevna migrena me odvracala od bilo kakve vrste ekrana tako da je moja prica morala sacekati da se oporavim sto sada mislim da jesam. Osim simpaticnih detalja ovog vise nego lijepog druzenja, takodjer cu se kratko osvrnuti na divnu saradnju koju vec duze vrijeme odrzavam sa ovim nadasve posebnim i meni srcu dragim brendom. Ukoliko niste posjecivali Sarajevo, svakako da ce historijska mjesta biti broj jedan na vasoj listi stvari koje treba uciniti. No i gradjani Sarajeva ce priznati kako je veoma tesko izbjeci soping centre na svakodnevnoj bazi, pogotovo tokom zime kada je dobro doslo svako mjesto gdje se ruke mogu ugrijati. Relativno novi SCC centar je postao domom novootvorene L'Occitane radnje - samo ta cinjenica ce uvijek biti jedan od razloga zbog kojeg cu cesto posjecivati ovaj soping centar pored vec 'dobrog, starog' BBI centra. Blago drugacija u odnosu na prethodne L'Occitane radnje koje sam religiozno posjecivala, voljela, ucinila beauty oltarom (Eat, Pray, Love referenca?) - novootvoreni prostor se smjestio na ljubicastom tepihu te je sam po sebi mini bjuti delikatesna radnja. Dopada mi se sto ima vise ulaza koji cine da radnja djeluje prozracno i pristupacno. Raspored proizvoda i polica je smislen te divan prizor, kao i obicno (L'Occitane razmazili ste nas!). Slasni i istovremeno umirujuci mirisi prozimaju ne samo radnju vec i cijelo prizemlje no zaista mislim kako nema potrebe da bilo kome 'prodajem' ideju L'Occitanea - dovoljno je samo jednom da ih posjetite i zadrzati ce vam se dugo u mislima.




Apart from the fact a new shop is launched, L'Occitane Holiday & Store Opening Party catered to more senses than one - there was sushi, delicious desserts and yummy drinks. Interesting thing was that I've never previously tried sushi before and I wan't sure if I'd like it but I kinda did! I'd definitely try it again and L'Occitane will also be remembered as the place/event where I tried sushi for the first time. I got my eyes on few caramel and lemon based chocolates which I devoured in an instant - do not let me start about how many (non-alcoholic) drinks I guzzled along the way. It's shameful really but I was with such a great company, with such pleasant and relaxed people that I simply did not care if I look like a baby stuffing its face with chocolates. It wasn't all games, I did some homework while I was there - I've noticed tons of beautifully arranged gift sets and their price varies from very affordable to downright lavishing. Personally, I find L'Occitane gift sets to be one of the best you can find during holiday season. And there's a certain comfort I feel whenever I work with the brand as they're approachable but they're very stylish in their communication at the same time. L'Occitane and I have a very beautiful type of collaboration going on, we simply 'clicked' from the start and I adore we share the same passion about same things. They are by far one of the best brands collaborating with is pure joy. Thank you L'Occitane not only for making holidays even more magical - than you for making our entire year fabulous! :)

Osim cinjenice da je Sarajevo L'Occitane pocastio jos jednim vrhunskim mjestom za kupovinu, L'Occitane Praznicno druzenje povodom novootvorenog prostora je bio ugodjaj za ne samo nos ili prstice vec i nepce - gosti ali i prolaznici su pocasceni sushijem, slatkim dezertima i ukusnim picem. Ono sto je interesantno jeste da nikada ranije nisam isprobala sushi i nisam bila sigurna da li ce mi se dopasti - ali jeste! Cak bih ga voljela isprobati ponovo a L'Occitane ce mi ostati u sjecanju i po tome sto sam zahvaljujuci njima isprobala po prvi put ovo jelo. Potom su mi oci odlutale na limunaste i karamelaste cokoladice koje su nestale u tren oka a bome da se nisam udarila po prstima, tesko da bi ih ostalo i za ostale posjetitelje. Jako su mi se dopala i ukusna, sarena (bezalkoholna) pica koja su bila ponudjena. Mislim da sve navedeno zvuci kao cista uzivancija i vjerujte da je bila ali nisam se samo prepustila hedonistickim momentima - sto bi se reklo, uradila sam i zadacu. Primjetila sam da je L'Occitane pripremio dosta razlicitih poklon setova, od onih povoljne cijene (cca 12,5KM) pa sve do luksuznih setova (cca 130KM). Ako ih posjetite, vidjeti cete da imaju popuste od 10-15% na manje setove pa nekih 15-25% na vece setove. Licno sam oduvijek smatrala da su L'Occitane poklon setovi medju najljepsim i najboljim na trzistu tokom praznicne sezone (ovo je moje misljenje i od perioda prije nastanka bloga, ako vas to zanima). Sada mozete zamisliti koliko je zadovoljstvo saradjivati sa brendom prema kojem gajim snazne simpatije vec godinama. Imam osjecaj da smo od samog pocetka 'kliknuli' posto primjecujem da dijelimo slicnu strast i pristup njegovanju i ljepoti. Posebni su mi po opustenoj komunikaciji koja je uvijek na visokom nivou. U svakom slucaju su jedni od meni najdrazih brendova sa kojima sam imala priliku saradjivati. Hvala L'Occitane, ne samo sto ste nam ucinili praznike magicnim vec i zato sto sam ugadjate tokom cijele godine! Ukoliko ste i vi fan L'Occitane brenda, obratite paznju na Meteo Beauty Facebook stranicu ali i L'Occitane Facebook stranicu jer vas ocekuju divna iznenadjenja :)
