Kiehl's Melbourne Central Grand Opening

Last night (Tuesday) long-standing international brand Kiehls celebrated the Grand Opening of their first Melbourne boutique with a New York Style Street Party at the iconic Melbourne Central.

The Kiehls New York Style Street Party included some great entertainment from internationally renowned DJ Andy Murphy (who was always ready to strike a pose and get his cute grin on), a roaring entrance by the Kiehls Harley Davidson crew, catering by NYC style hot dog stand, Massive Weiner and a special guest appearance by Kiehls fan, Zoë Foster Blake.

Zoë, a long-time fan of Kiehls also showcased her highly acclaimed book, Amazing Face.

Kiehls can be found on the Ground Level of Melbourne Central.

The scene was set and it did feel like we had just boarded off our flight from Melbourne to New York. As we walked down Melbourne Central we could hear the sweet beats of Dj Andy Murphy blaring, so we knew we had found the place. Then the Kiehls boutique was brightly lit up with their New York style neon signs and red, white and blue balloons.  The smell of wieners was in the air and Moët, Budweiser, a&w, Dr Pepper and water running freely around the designated area. I could not help but duck into the store and have a good look and feel of the products up for sale there. Maybe I did maybe I didn’t take a few bits of candy off the table, after all they looked so good and yummy (the dreaded gummy bear was calling my name.)

Firstly, we were greeted with bubbles and wieners ;-) by the lovelies at the launch.  I was then very lucky to have met and had a really good chat with Zoë Foster Blake, who is a down to Earth amazing lady (but not before I had the chance to make sure all presence of the wiener and mustard were gone.)

I couldnt help but purchase her book and have it signed by Zoë herself. I am looking forward to getting my head stuck into it actually, as the book is full of beauty tips and hints that Zoë has gathered through the years. She actually told me she just emptied her head onto some paper and that was the creation of her book.

After the hustle and bustle settled down a little, the street and Melbourne Central was filled with a huge roar as the Kiehls Motorbike crew rolled on up to the boutique on their shiny Harley motorbikes kitted up in their Kiehls tees.

Then shortly after that was the official opening of the boutique that saw the lovely Zoë Foster Blake cut the ribbon and have the many paps snap some shots. But before the ribbon was cut she spoke some words and also talked very highly of Kiehls and its products. One product that Zoë recommended and that she said was her all time fav is Kiehls new Dermatologist Solutions Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB cream. And looking at her skin I will have to get my hands on some of this stuff, Zoë’s skin was flawless.

We were actually thinking about leaving after the ribbon cutting but for reasons unknown we stuck around. And lucky we did, as Hamish Blake popped up out of nowhere and made an appearance. I thought he would be the type of person that would be very above everyone and stick to himself kind of thing. But instead he went out of his way to speak to everyone that was there and was very friendly. Zoë was never far behind of course, and these two lovebirds would have to be the sweetest couple I have ever laid eyes on. They are very inseparable and it was great to see the two together at such a special Grand Opening (especially considering they would have had a huge night Sunday at the Logies with Hamish taking out one of them golden statues.)

Some other special guest that were there included
Miss Universe- Scherri-Lee Biggs
Katy Steele (singer/songwriter) and so many more.

I had the time of my life and its all thanks to some lovely ladies out there inviting me to such a great Grand Opening of a very beautiful brand. Thank you so much ladies, I cannot wait to try out all the products in my very generous goodie bag.
