After a jam-packed and incredibly successful day at the inaugural BEAUTY & SPA Insiders summit on Monday 27th SPA+CLINIC had the privilege to continue the festivities and celebrate an incredible milestone.
The S+C team were thrilled and humbled to mark the magazine’s 20th anniversary this year with an intimate cocktail event, celebrating the special day alongside some of the magazine’s closest friends, supporters, advertisers, contributors and industry leaders.
The Butler in Potts Point provided the gorgeous backdrop for the evening’s celebrations, offering guests stunning views of the Sydney city skyline. Attendees included Dr Joseph Hkeik (All Saints), Dr Warwick Nettle (Silkwood Medical), Adie Robertson (To Wonderland), Dr Kate Jameson (Youth Lab), Kelly George (Kelly George Aesthetics), Kristie Milgate (Dermalogica GM), Robyn McAlpine (Skintifix), and guests from Cutera, Eminence, BLC, Dermaviduals and Candela, to name a few.
Guests enjoyed drinks and roving canapés, along with some unique touches to the evening! The mood was set and a signature scent created in the room with Peppermint Grove’s new limited edition Blush soy candle fragrance burning in each corner. Everyone was also encouraged on arrival to ‘find their gua sha’ amongst a collection of stunning, emerald green velvet pouches, housing a rose quartz heart shaped gua sha inside. Kindly provided by local wellness brand Julisa, each gua sha had been meticulously hand lettered by the S+C team, with gold initials placed on each signature Julisa pouch.
Attending doctors and registered nurses got a few giggles from hand-crafted syringe cookies on display (lovingly baked by Online Editor Mala McAlpin) before enjoying a touching speech from SPA+CLINIC Editor Nadine Dilong, sharing some humble words about our wonderful industry, and how much it means for a print magazine to continue thriving in this modern digital landscape.
After some mingling and networking, it was time to call it a night – particularly for those who began the day at 8.30am for BEAUTY & SPA Insiders! The evening was completed with an official cake-cutting and serving of a jaw-droppingly beautiful pink and white ombre cake, dazzling with gold flecks and fresh florals, designed by talented Sydney baker Madi Moses from Sweet Nothings cakes.
Guests were bid farewell and thanked once again with a goodie bag containing kind contributions in the form of Skinstitut Micellar Water, Dermaviduals lip balm, Peppermint Grove soy candle, Bake Mixes raw bliss balls and cookie mixes, Natralus Australia Hand & Skin Shield, and of course, SPA+CLINIC’s 20th anniversary print edition.
We would like to take the opportunity once again to say a huge thank you for your continued support as a SPA+CLINIC reader – you are the reason we do what we do. Cheers to another 20 years!
