Hosting my First Blogger Event!

October 23, 2017

I am sooo excited to share with you guys my event I hosted recently with Henri Bendel! I have always loved Henri Bendel so hosting my first blogger event there was like a dream come true! I knew I wanted to make it a fun event so thanks to the help of Younglan, the store manager here's what we had:

- Jordan from the Tart Peach came to show us her new lipsticks and the one she created JUST for my event called Henri Red. She is a local lipstick maker in Columbus and she's cool as heck! You can shop her lippies/t-shirts/hats here!

- Local makeup artist Emily Hwang came and showed up her amazing talents giving the girls mini makeovers! She has over 10 years of experience and you guys....her makeup was flawless! Check her out here!

- Microblading Technician Bladed by Liz came and gave all of us a mini session explaining microblading, it was amazing. You can check her out here!

One of the best parts of my night was my little sister came and surprised me! She was supposed to work but I was so happy when she showed up! My mom and her best friend also came to support me. They are the absolute best! 

We had cupcakes and cake pops, prosecco at every corner and we raffled off a handbag. My new intern won! Yay Erin! Going to events is one of my favorite things and being able to host one and it turning out successful literally made me feel like a million bucks! Shoutout to these wonderful brands who sponsored the goody bags for the event:

European Wax Center donated umbrellas, a free wax & a gift card! 
See's Candies donated their delicious Molasses chips you have to try! 
Balm Skincare donated tons of products and personalized each bag for the girls!
- Henri Bendel gave the girls the cutest wine totes

I was so thankful and happy to everyone who helped me make this event possible and to all my friends and family that showed up! There's nothing better than support. I can't wait to host my next event, stay tuned babes! xx

High Waisted Pants

October 18, 2017

Do you have an item in your closet you typically gravitate towards? This for me would be high waisted pants. Whether it's dressier pants like these or jeans, they are what I feel most comfortable in.   I love tucking in a shirt with them and I feel like they would look cute worn so many different ways! I wore them in New York for Fashion Week and have worn them multiple times since. 

I'm sorry I didn't have a post up Monday! I was super busy planning my first blogger event which was last Sunday and I'm so happy to say it went AMAZING! I can't wait to share the pictures with you guys!

Laser Hair Removal with Juvly

October 13, 2017

Hi babes! Today I'm going to take you through my experience at Juvly Aeshetics for my first treatment of Laser Hair Removal! Rated the #1 Medical Spa, I knew I was going to have great service at Juvly. I have already had two appointments there- one for Dysport (botox) and one for laser hair removal.

I honestly thought I always had a high pain tolerance but considering I almost passed out when I got my dysport treatment done, I was a tad nervous going into my laser hair removal appointment. I didn't know what to expect. I had never done it. I chose to get my under arms done first. Before you get lasered you cannot: use spray tan 2 weeks prior, must shave the area 24 hours prior, do not tweeze or wax at least a month prior and do not bleach. 

When I went in, I had to fill out a questionaire to make sure I followed all of the instructions and I was a good candidate to have laser hair removal done. Once I got the go ahead, it was game time. They told me to expect small pains such as a flick from a rubber band. I asked how many "flicks" I would feel per arm and they said about 50. Everyone in the room put on their protective googles and she started. I swear to you guys it didn't hurt at all! It felt like a hair dryer was on my armpits. Before I knew it we were done. 

You have to wait 6 weeks to schedule your next visit for laser on the same area and she said it would take 8-9 sessions to get the hair almost all of the way gone. I can't wait to go back for my next session! Make sure to check out Juvly for all of your medical spa needs!

Thank you to Juvly Aethestics for sponsoring today's post. 

Leopard Pants

October 6, 2017

Earrings: BP Tank: Spiritual Gangster via Bollare, c/o Coat: Status Cult via For Bloggers Only, c/o Bag: Rebecca Minkoff c/o Pants: Pretty Little Thing via Asos (unfortunately sold out), almost EXACT here Shoes: Karl Lagerfeld, exact here c/o

So sometimes I like to dress out of my comfort zone and I can definitely say I'm doing that here but I am OBSESSED with these leopard pants from Asos. This is the second time I wore them and I know they will make a few more appearances. I wore them first during New York Fashion Week and everyone complimented me on them. I love that you can dress them up or dress them down. 

What're you guys up to this weekend? I hoping to get over this 3 day migraine! And I have a blogger event Sunday night. Be sure to follow along with me on instastories! Love you guys! xx

Charles Penzone x Alterna Haircare Event

October 2, 2017

Hi babes! I recently went to such a fun event at Charles Penzone with Alterna Haircare and I wanted to tell you all about it! When I walked in, I was greeted with a super nice goody bag from Alterna Haircare! You guys know I'm obsessed with anything hair related so I was really excited about this! Next stop....champagne fountain! This event was in the evening so it was a perfect way to wind down from the busy day I had! 

I was so happy when I saw my friend Steph from the @bohemiancrown. They had an awesome DJ going and delicious sweets to snack on. And a cute photo booth area with a bunch of props! I definitely had to take a picture there!

Alterna Haircare had 40% off all of their hair products, so you know I had to check those out! The Alterna Bamboo uplifting hairspray is my favorite! It gives you so much volume at the root of your hair!

A few stylists were doing different hairstyles for free for anyone who wanted to try. I was so excited to get my hair done and Jordan was so sweet to me! She is a Senior Director at Charles Penzone. She put the cutest braid in my hair and made in look amazing in under ten minutes! You guys should definitely check her out! Her instagram is @jordanatcharlespenzone.
