Last week Mannfolk PR (a veteran beauty, fashion and lifestyle PR agency) and Top Tier Media (my social media agency) put on a Summer Soiree for beauty bloggers, fashion bloggers and press. We had a PACKED house at Dorothy Mannfolk’s beautiful showroom in Larchmont Village! We had a TON of amazing sponsors including HINT Water (my new jam – seriously helpful in getting off the Diet Coke addiction), Devotion Vodka, Chef Mumsie Catering, Chella (a brow bar was set up so guests could get their brows looking fierce!), Magnolia Cupcakes (the best in the world – don’t argue with me on this one – you will never get me to change my mind!), and Skinny Lemon Co (Master Cleanse lemon, cayenne and pure maple syrup drinks).
We had door prizes from J F Lazartigue, Thursday Friday, ViX Paula Hermanny, Lashfully (who also did my amazing lash extensions!), a 2 night say at the 4 star luxury resort in Indian Wells, the Miramonte Resort, an Allegresse illuminating facial peel, a Zoom Whitening Treatment from Dr. Steven Donia, DDS, a Julie Bee’s gift card and more.
I don’t normally have makeup and hair done, but I wanted to bring out all the stops for the event. So, the lovely Taary at Blushington (on Sunset) gave me a wonderful cat eye, red lip, retro look (which I got tons of compliments on). They are pros, they get you in and out if you’re in a hurry, and the peach decor just makes me freaking happy.
And my hair was done by my good friend, and extremely talented hair artist, Patricia Lynn Laas. I don’t let just anyone touch my hair, but she has given me cuts, color, and several stylings and all have been amazing. I highly recommend you check out her new spot at Salon Republic in Beverly Hills.
Here’s the after shot before I walked out into the raging Los Angeles sun! Uggg!
During the event, I got to hang out with some of my favorite bloggers and press! I wish I got pics with all of them, but I didn’t! I know Dorothy’s team got some good shots, so I’ll share those on my Top Tier Media Facebook page as they come in.
