Introducing the Golden Network & an evening @ Amanda Wakeley



London really is a fantastic city when it comes to networking and meeting new people. Moving countries can be a daunting experience, especially in such an over populated demographic. So who better to back this up than moi her myself!   

Ive been very fortunate to have made friends with some delightful people, some who I can happily call my nearest & dearest and interesting walks of life through my gallivanting adventures. Ive never really struggled to build strong relationships with people but appreciate that putting yourself out there can be quite an overwhelming (and scary) task at hand; although very rewarding in the long run! 

Since ive started blogging I have attended loads of events and been networking like crazy. Its all about getting involved, making the most of what this vibrant city has to offer because there is plenty of it going on.

No sitting on a bench or making excuses! 


I meet up with the Golden Network’s founder, Victoria Salem who started this exclusive community back in February 2014. Coming from a financial back ground and being a social bunny like myself, thought it would be a great idea to start up a professional networking community to further develop and build relationships with like minded individuals. 



Something that drew me to this top networking site is the variety of restaurants, bar and private members clubs that they also happen to work with and host events at. We all know how much I love to be social in this city, so ideally this is highly attractive and fits in well to the current lifestyle I live.

Their sophisticated events range from private tours of galleries, wine tasting, cabaret nights, industry related talks and providing 24 hour luxury concierge service. Providing VIP queue jumping, complimentary drinks and assorted discounts, they have also created strategic partnerships with a number of big brands including Vogue, GQ, Glamour, Vanity fair, BMW, Square Mile and Amanda Wakeley.




Speaking of Amanda, I was invited to come along to my first event at the glamorous flagship store in Mayfair to find out just how it all works. The store itself is two levels and guests are greeted with a glass of champagne while getting the chance to check out their gorgeous pieces on display. 




I got the chance to catch up Bridget who is the private client bookings & events manager for the store. She shared with me her enormous passion for the luxury clothing and accessories brand which has gone from strength to strength in their occasional wear to providing a wide range of chic clothing for the ‘every day’ lifestyle. 




After a quick debrief of the designers history and being treated to a sneaky peak of the new seasons collections with a mini fashion show, we were welcomed to try on some of our favourite pieces including their dazzling and elegant dresses. In particular, the black Asayii raven sculptured gown, which was rather alluring. A figure hugging, floor skimming knockout which was awfully tempting to try on (I wasn’t the only one feeling this way) 






Sadly in the end, I didn’t walk away with any captivating items, however I will mention that Amanda has also created her first tea range of smooth green and white herbal tea leaves including flavours of my current obsession – dark chocolate!! I believe this is a favourite of the designer and even comes in a beautiful intricate box. This I can say, I did purchase and are yet to brew it over a lovely pot of tea.






Many thanks to the professional team at Amanda Wakeley & the Golden Network. Looking forward to attending many more future up and coming events!!
