Queen Victoria (Empress of India), Catherine the Great (Empress of Russia) and Faustina (Empress of Rome) all enjoyed great marriages with husbands who adored them. They also all epitomise opulence and indulgence– which is just what you want from your special night out with the gals.
Here’s how you can experience a classy and decadent Empress Party with the gals- whatever your budget.
The Empress tarot card promises pleasure, physical attraction, health, sensuality, fertility, delight and desire… so organise a group session with a Fortune Teller for a bit of fun and you might like what you find out. Patricia Jordan Heaven Sent at Viva Retro in Belfast takes group bookings.
What could be more indulgent that making your own chocolates before devouring them?! Chocolate-making isn’t just for kids any more- Chocodelicious has workshops in and around Belfast to cater for all you Sugahfix gals.
Feel like the Empress of India for a day with a relaxing Omni Indian Massage or try a Wine Tasting course – when in Rome…do as the Roman Empress does!
Go all out on the Indian theme in an authentic Indian Restaurant like the Jharna on the Lisburn Road in Belfast, or enjoy surroundings more suited to Rome in the stunning Italian eatery that is the Chubby Cherub Restaurant on Upper Arthur Street.
Classically Russian, Vodka Cocktails will help you channel your inner Catherine the Great, while a nice bottle of Red or White Wine will continue Faustina’s Roman experience. Bombay Sapphire Gin is a must for the Empress of India!
Long Romanesque gowns and gladiator sandals give a modern twist to Faustina’s style, while lace, frills and high collars will help you create the Victorian look. Have a nosey around vintage fairs like Frock Around The Clock to create your Empress look.
