Can you have fun – and I mean a lot of fun – at Oktoberfest if you are a teetotal, and a health junkie like me? Oh yes you can! Especially if you go with a bunch of bloggers, a brand, La Biosthétique, whose motto is The Culture of Total Beauty, and you are treated like a princess.
La Biosthétique has always been very active in promoting its products and services through the press and is now starting to do the same with bloggers. The Oktoberfest is so lively, colourful and entertaining, that it was the perfect occasion for the brand to invite influencers and give them the perfect make-over…Bavarian style, of course!
The Biosthétique staff was so friendly and motivated, we could ask them whatever we wished and they would go the extra mile to do it. The first thing they did was offering us champagne (and water to me, of course). Then they gave us refreshing eye patches. I think we all loved them so much that we almost went partying with patches on! Next thing was the hair: soft, loose braids in all variations – Bavarian, but with a modern twist. Finally the make-up: professional and natural looking. It was time to wear our Dirndl – the traditional dress for the perfect Oktoberfest look.
The Wild Side
The wild part was in the tent – the famous Schützen Festzelt. There, thousands of people drank what for me looked like huge beer glasses. It was so colourful and packed with people! Live music, non-stop delicious food, waiters rushing and almost pushing the guests (at least the drunk ones) if they stopped in the middle of corridors, people merrily dancing on the tables, choirs, giggling, champagne and more beer – we had it all. We bloggers made quite a cute table, I think (and so thought some of the other guests, who kept paying us compliments), all dolled up in our beautiful dresses and lovely hairdos. We were also lucky because blogger and photographer Andrea Monica Hug of Chic in Zurich was with us, so we had the best photos taken.
Thank you La Biosthétique for offering us such a fun and elegant experience – Oktoberfest can be really enjoyed by everybody!
