Everyday you get the opportunity to see things that I love but I felt that it was time to also bring together some of my favorite bloggers and influencers by introducing items within themes! From that second, Kimmie's Gimmies was born and since we're all thinking of warmer weather we're kicking off our Spring Break theme which starts next week by having an intimate group of fellow bloggers to see my pics in terms of my favorite place as well as items that are perfect for Spring Break! I rounded up Shyema of Beauty and the Feast, Dorian of Big Apple Style, Kitty of Kitty Bradshaw, Makeda of Glamazon Diaries, Lorna of The Fabulous Report, Shoshi of Modern Day Courtesan Magazine and NY Near Say, Christine of Tineey, Charu of Butterfly Diary and Shaunequa of Temple of Glam.
We arrived at Polished Beauty Bar on the UWS to get fab manis which is the perfect way to begin thinking about Spring Break. Obviously, I went to my stand by - Zoya's Indigo which is the perfect shade and everyone picked their fave colors! While we were getting pampered, we were able to not only get to know each other but owner and Celebrity Stylist of the salon, Susan Nam shared stories of shoots that she had been apart of and other fun facts. In addition, we were visited by one of our sponsors - Lush (on the UWS) so fun and who doesn't love it! Once we were perfectly polished, Susan shared how we can stay summer ready with our nails and explained what will keep our manis intact. With all that info, we had to delve into my top pics that were stuffed inside our fab bag!
I'm so excited to have had phenomenal sponsors including Polished Beauty Bar of course - CND (not only did they provide items from their effects line but they included Jason Wu's new colors that he did in collaboration with the brand - not available in stores until next month!), Zoya products, fragrances by Natori, Queen Latifah, Jessica Simpson, Gabriel Organics, a fab pop of color with Skagen Denmark, Monet Jewelry, Batiste Hair (dry shampoo which made Shyema excited), Lush Cosmetics, MD Solar Scienes and Amala! Take some time to check out images from this event as well as the fun video!
A huge thank you to all of our partners that made this event a success! Next month we have an amazing make up event to help you get that amazing look for all of your cocktail parties as well as in June having a fun dinner party! Kimmie's Gimmies will always be themed letting you know what's amazing and what you should be including!
There will be updates to this post with links of other attendees coverage!
There has been a huge movement in my beauty routine that has started to include more green elements. Last week, Jeannine of Beauty Sweet Spot introduced me to Lush. Yes I knew a lot about the brand but only from the bath fizz balls. After the Beauty Blogger Event, I realized that they are much more than what I had given them credit for! Below are some of the products I received at the event and additional ones that the Lush team provided to me! Enjoy the video!
I joined fab beauty bloggers yesterday at the Nest Loft to see the amazing items that won in Women's Health Magazine! With so many products laid out in front of us, it was a bit dizzying but with a fab goodie bag, I can't wait to share with you the items that won and also which ones I absolutely love! Some are in my beauty regimen and others I will definitely be popping in! It's always nice to go to an event when you can get a mani/pedi, nibbles, cocktails and mingle with friends.
Right after leaving the Nest Loft, I headed to an event that seriously made me change everything in terms of beauty! Lush Cosmetics threw an amazing blogger event that made me realize that they are more than bath bombs. For the many fans that are already familiar with this let me say, that I've clearly been the one in the dark! As I hit their store on 14th, I realized that they had a number of lip scrubs (that are edible), lotions, masks and more. Everyone that attended the event in terms of employees of the company were knowledgeable, patient and really embraced their love of the brand and shared how it extended to other portions of their lifestyle. The focus of the launch revolved around their new Colour Supplements which provides a flawless finish and yet doesn't have the chemicals that can be harmful for your skin. I truly enjoyed playing with the moisturizers (I received the Imperialis) and really looking at the products and their presentation! Clearly I have been out of the loop and I'm so glad to know that there is a company that is so committed to good health and reducing the clutter by making many of their items in such a way that there doesn't need to be a package! Future posts will talk about the products I received from this event, ease of use and any new items that I begin to use!
