It’s crazy how time flies! I was going to say most but A LOT of my friends are now getting married, have kids, or are ENGAGED. It’s definitely a beautiful thing. I was invited to help out and attend a friend of mine’s surprise engagement party. It was a great turn out and a very nice spot. I might have to use that spot for a future birthday.
The event took place at Tabaq on U street in the Red Room. We filled the room with glasses of chocolates, balloons, and of keepsakes for the memory of the beautiful event!
Here are some pictures::::::
|Reza’s brother is extra cool!|
I got my birchbox sample box when I got back from Vegas and it was some great stuff in there!
My favorite is this Laura Gellar Blush-N-Brighten in Honey Dipped! It’s like a bronzer/blush and I needed that in my life! So far I love it! I need to give it some more wear.
|Whoops! My Macbook made it backwards but what a nice size for a sample size. =)|
So I made one of those escapes to NYC and with the LifeKit crew this time. Fun ride for sure! LOL! But anyway this was deja vu for me in NY. Only two years ago I made my way to the Chris Leaan Boutique trunk show at the Dumbo Lofts in Brooklyn but with a designer and it was cold so my memory was slightly different.
I invited everyone I KNEW! Well to later realize I missed some people…sorry guys! =( But anyway as we rode through the city it was soooo many brides getting their pictures taken, like it was amazing. Then when we got near the actual trunk show, there was a bride getting her pictures taken, a “model” getting pictures taken and then after me being lost for a little bit, I found this over pass I remember walking under and they were shooting a dance real under there. When I say NY is full of life, I LOVE IT!
So anyway when we got there it was about time for it to start but just about everyone was setting up shop and I guess with being in visuals, I know how time is of the essence and I love helping set stuff up. So anyway the set up was DOPE!!! It was quite visually appealing. I was impressed with the imagery as well. Their spokesmodel was GORG!!!! Cool chic!
Set Up Pics:::::
Anyway after this I had to eat so got some pizza from a little corner spot and it was DELICIOUS! I love food in NY, it’s always GREAT! I came back and the table was fully set….check it out!!!
|I absolutely LOVE this PICTURE!|
And then some friends came through and then I decided it was time for me to venture off and talk to some of the vendors.
Check out my friend/designer Imani in her Imanilia piece!!!
My first stop was Copy & Paste which showcased refurbished denim jackets with studs and fabric added to the collar and other locations on the jacket that made them pretty hot. They also had print sweatshirts with Copy & Paste on it which is extra unique name if you ask me. Come to find out their site doesn’t work….tisk tisk. Well here are a few pictures of their booth.
|Desert anyone….the oatmeal cookies I got from here were YUMMY!!|
