Wednesday evening I was invited to the Guerlain Beauty Event hosted by Refinery 29 at Bergdorf’s 5F Bar. The event was to celebrate the new colors of their Rouge Automatique lipstick from the famed house of perfume. I arrived slightly late due to my job downtown, but was immediately greeted with champagne, mini cupcakes, and my favorite, mini macaroons! Shortly after I was whisked away to the make up chair for my complimentary Guerlain make over.
I was very pleased with the end result; you may have noticed I don’t usually wear too much make up. In fact, most days I’m lucky if I put mascara on. My make up artist kept my look simple with a subtle smokey eye and some soft matte skin to even me out. She put on the new Guerlain lipstick #103. The make up almost feels weightless, which is perfect for the upcoming summer months as well and as a gift at the event they were giving away their coveted bronzer.I also fell in love with their dual ended mascara, which I may have to end up buying at some point soon!
After my make over I did some interviews with Refinery 29 and Guerlain people, as well as took a bunch of pictures with everyone around!

The event overall was a great experience, and I can see that Guerlain is trying to appeal to the more youthful fun demographic, which I fully back. I can’t wait to try more of the colors (I’ve had my eye on 163) and more of their other products as well.

A week ago today was the second annual Fashions Night Out, which if you didn’t know, is a global shopping event where stores stay open late (the events are usually 6-11pm) for one night only with activities,celebrities, fashion shows, and more!
Last year I stayed pretty basic, just going to a few small shops before hitting up a fashion show. This year however, I decided to do the more major events and spots. This began at Bloomingdale’s on 60th. There were drinks, games, sales, artists, live performances and other special guests. While listening to music I shopped around and came across the All Saints set up in there. It was amazing, expect a post about it soon.
After Bloomie’s I met up with some friends to see Heidi Klum at Destination Maternity. There they were serving pizza slices, Magnolia cupcakes, refreshments, cookies, and sushi; everything a pregnant woman could ask for!
Afterwards my friends and I attempted Bergdorf’s. The line to get inside literally stretched round the block, but there was also a mini bock party going down…live window displays and entertainment.
Next stop was Barney’s, where the Olsen Twins were supposed to be hosting karaoke. The store was PACKED and POP chips and special edition waters were handed out to the guests.
Walking around on 5th avenue there was quite a crowd outside of Versace and Gant were creating quite a ruckus with their live models. Versace had gorgeous posers in their windows…while Gant attempting to be epic (they had a kegger last year) had a man…in the shower, in their window. Girls were stopping to take pictures of and with the handsome, built model who was definitely enjoying all the attention. Leave it to the heavy hitters to know how to get the crowd buzzing…
After waiting for my friend to meet Kim Kardashian, I finally called it a night and grabbed some margaritas with my friends!
Now, I just got back from NY yesterday so this is the first of many posts…get ready so Stevie Boi Shades, Alice + Olivia, and much more!
