Lips n Sips

Lip n Sippers: are asked to wear a bright lipstick and gather for a few casual hours of  ‘chic chat’. There are no raffles, nothing to buy and no prizes to win except a simple pleasure: one another’s company.

After moving to the Middle East I realized that women’s support of each other especially in times of need is truly global. The first Lips n Sips – The desert chics was held in 2013. In both countries Lips n Sips remains an intimate and much loved annual event .

I gift each guest an over the top rhinestone lip key ring – a new colour each year. The stones begin to fall out almost immediately which annoyed me until I saw a wonderful irony. After all, who isn’t a little flawed? It adds to our unique characters, doesn’t detract from our strength and we can still shine bright.
