More® Fierce & Fabulous Girl’s Night Out in NYC!

23 Oct

Every year I would miss it!  I either had a conflict in my schedule or no more tickets.  I even would get the Oh! by the way news, that I just hate!

But this year!  Yes… this year, I was finally able to go to More® Magazine’s Fierce & Fabulous Girl’s Night!  Who cares if I was told just last night, at the spur of the moment!  Who cares! The event was held at the gorgeous Dream Downtown Hotel on 16th Street in NYC!  The night was brisk, but full of excitement. 

Upon arrival, I’d received an all-access pass describing what the night had to offer.  I simply love, love, LOVE More magazine and their events!   When I’m reading the magazine, I always feel that they really get us, women that is…they get it right and  I’m so glad they’re here;  Lesley Jane Seymour, Editor-on-Chief and her staff!

The sponsors of the party were right there on hand to give us ladies a good time!  There were Shiseido makeup artists providing Eye and Lip Touch-ups.  They even had a sexy signature cocktail and allowed everyone to shop their fabulous products in celebration of Shiseido’s holiday palette.  An Alex and Ani Instacam photo booth to take pictures, the guests who arrived early received complimentary bangles.  There was something for everyone!

* Shopping for fashion accessories at the Touch of Fabulous display.
* Expert Laurie Davis gave great advice for successful online dating (now I find her!)!
* Into Tarot Card reading, it was there! (the line was so long)
* The fabulous Lyss Stern of Diva Moms was there talking about her book and signing for those who purchased.
* Express eyebrow threading
* First look at The 52 Weeks—meet the authors and buy the book.

And there was more (no pun intended)!  Network with some of the VIP guests; including MORE editors.   I also met some wonderful woman; where we all exchanged business cards to keep in touch with one another in the future! It was so much going on, there were even raffle prizes, including appetizers, cocktails and my favorite, WINE from Women of the Vine.  Upon leaving, we all received a fabulous gift bag worth $200+ at the end of the evening.

Photos were posted under the #MOREnightout, it was so much fun…a big party, please feel free to post some ❤ LIKEs or Favorites!   To be in the know about fashion, beauty and the latest events, you can also get a subscription to the magazine and even sign up for More’s newsletter!  You won’t be disappointed!

Rihanna Frenzy! RiRi MAC Collection Line and Styled to Rock Series on Bravo!

23 Oct

A MAC frenzy, completely sold out in NYC!  I tried my best to get my daughter the limited edition RiRi Woo lipstick from the RiRi Hearts MAC Fall Collection!  I tried, I really tried.

Even in the airport where MAC is being  sold in the duty-free area….NO LUCK! They had SOLD OUT stickers on the display!

Then I tried calling in some favors, only to get a great laugh! “Psst, yeah right!”.  Three weeks and still no luck, nada, nothing!  Will it come back in stock, who knows?  All I can say is the marketing frenzy is crazy and I know Rihanna’s camp is very, very happy!

Miss Robin Rihanna Fenty has collaborated with brands like Covergirl, Gucci and Vita Coco coconut water just to name a few. For only being seven years into the music industry, she has an empire.  Lately the racy controversial video, the MAC makeup line, Twitter fights on whose relevant (she’s global for those who may forget) and her new reality series on Bravo, Styled to Rock beginning this Friday!

What is the series all about?  Styled to Rock will feature RihannaPharell and many other celebrity guests which give aspiring designers a chance to style an outfit for one or more musical acts each week. The contestants are fighting for a $100,000 dollar cash prize, a fashion feature in Glamour magazine and the once-in-a-lifetime chance to become the next member of Rihanna’s style team!! 🙂

The concept is the same as other reality shows where the opportunity to have an unknown talent show their work.  It’s important and I always say you won’t know, unless you try!

I know a lot of you are into fashion, makeup and hair.  Who isn’t, I am too!  I also am into set design, props, lights and cameras!  So I will be looking at EVERYTHING to get ideas, marvel at the work in front and behind the scenes. More importantly to see who we may think of as just ordinary people, really do marvel.

I digressed!  Back to the MAC line!  I’m still looking for a MAC restock !  RiRi Woo! Helpppppp!  I heard through the grapevine that a Holiday collection is on its way! I just need one lipstick under my Umbrella, brella, brella! LOL ! 🙂

Here is an unusual beautiful result of the photo shot I took of a MAC billboard advertising the RiRi cosmetic line!
