Like Haig Club London, Haig Club Miami was celebrated in style and full of flair. Everything was impeccably done – from the setup and décor, right down to the food and cocktails. I’m honoured to be invited by David, to join him for dinner to celebrate the brand and in a city he calls his second home.
I’m so fortunate to have great support from the people back home. From the perfect dress, right accessories, nails, hair and makeup, everything was put together nicely for me prior to my departure.
This time around, I decided to do without a makeup artist as I felt more comfortable working on my face, with the help of Brenda from Shu Uemura. I had a makeup session with her where she taught me some tricks on how to enhance my eyes and eyebrows so I felt quite confident I could hack it on my own.
I did however need help with my hair as I’m quite hopeless at curling it. My hair stylist did a great job is giving me soft curls and volume, and I love how it falls nicely on my face. The team on site was amazing – so helpful and accommodating throughout. Especially during the event. :)
They helped me with my gown as I moved around the property (the ground was slippery from the rain), made sure I had everything I needed for the dinner and worked through dinner and the morning after to make sure all influencers receive the official photos.
David was amazing as usual – so sporting and accommodating throughout. I forgot my script cue and he laughed it off and said it’s OK to fumble.
Compared to London, there was a lot more cocktails in Haig Club Miami. I reckon we had about 7-8 different cocktails to drink that night and if I hadn’t finished all my food, I would have been rather light headed.
Got to sit next to Ewan during dinner so that was fun and the food was really to my liking. There’s plenty of flavours and textures going on in each dish so I was constantly excited with every new course.
I had plenty of fun and because it’s my second time to Haig Club’s dinner series, I was more relaxed. Partly because I grew familiar with some people so I wasn’t as nervous as before.
Haig Club Miami was truly an amazing experience and the team definitely outdid themselves. Definitely an experience I’ll remember for a long, long time!
