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!

Magazine Perfume Samples, Just a Fragrance Idea!

24 Aug


Catching up on my reading on the many Style and Design magazines yesterday; I don’t know why this suddenly became a visual to me!

Did you know there are at least four to six perfume samples in a magazine?

Hoping that you love the ad, bottle, style and pull the tab to smell! If you love it, you’ll buy it!

Well I’ve tried about four (J’Adore, Chloe, Modern Muse and Daisy).  I’m loving Daisy by Marc Jacobs !  I love gardenia, so I instantly picked up the fragrance of them.  By lifting up the tab and allowing the scent to capture my attention with no pressure, I can make an honest decision on the fragrance.  Which has violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit, gardenia, violet petals, jasmine petals, musk, vanilla and white woods.

So I tore gently the ad with the sample and placed in my bag, as a reminder to go to the mall.  Forgetting about it, I was receiving a lot of compliments while waiting on line to pay for an item at the drugstore (my bag was open).

“What are you wearing, it smells nice?” The fragrance was softly lingering from my bag!

So I got really great reviews and a free bag freshener !  Now I’m not saying if you put a sample in your bag; wait to get feedback!!!! I just reminding that the perfume ad samples are there for you to use to make a decision for purchasing and other ways too! 🙂

  • Place in your lingerie dresser draw.
  • Place in your car under the seat!
  • Attach to your air filter to carry the scent throughout the house

Only if you really like it!!!!!!!!  Let me know, if you have ever selected a fragrance, simply by testing the sample in a magazine, which one and did you buy it?

By the way, I did buy Daisy by Marc Jacobs and I’m very pleased!!!!!  See, the magazine perfume sample did exactly what it was supposed to do!  It smells absolutely wonderful!  There are other fragrances under the Marc Jacobs entourage, so when you get a chance; test them out when you are exploring the samples you’ve collected!   Some how this ended up being a review on Daisy!!!   Have fun!
