CELEBRATE THE NOW: MOËT & CHANDON
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences. We live in the era of many hindrances. But one of life’s sharpest paradoxes is that your brightest future hinges on your ability to pay attention to the present.
As part of ‘Celebrating The Now’ on Friday Moët & Chandon hosted a selected number of key lifestyle bloggers who had been nominated for the Royal Moët Nectar Treatment. The bloggers (myself included) were treated to a pre-tasting of the Nectar Impèrial by the luxury champagne house Moët & Chandon. The Nectar Impèrial will officially be launched in Kenya soon. The champagne which is yellow to golden in color has a very fruity aroma/bouquet (some pineapple and mango) with a slight hint of vanilla and of course grapefruit. With an alcohol content of 12%, I’d describe it as medium-bodied which makes it pretty much a good everyday kind of drink. What I love most about the champagne was the fact that I could still perceive the fruitiness after swallowing as opposed to the astringent aftertaste associated with most wines.
This exclusive event whose dress code was ‘sexy chic’ was held at Privee, Westlands. Needless to say, these bloggers didn’t come to play, they only came to slay. For my outfit, I went for a monochrome burgundy theme. I paired my light-weight bodycon midi sweater dress with a faux fur coat and very minimalist strappy sandals. My makeup served to give a pop of color to the otherwise monochrome look.
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. #CelebrateTheNow #MoëtMoment
Side note: Can I have a moment to state that Moët & Chandon sure knows how to throw a party, lit is the word. It was such an honor to be part of the luxurious brand.
