This past Fashion Week, I was thrilled to be invited to Birchbox’s Sample Stop Shop. For those of you who are Birchbox subscribers, you know that every month for only $10 you receive 4 to 5 samples of the best beauty products. For Fashion Week, invitees were able to customize their very own Birchbox – for free! – in a “candy shop” full of treats and beauty samples. There was even a lounge to relax and recharge your electronics during the Fashion Week madness, and even a retouching salon!
So for my 3rd fashion season in a row, I got to spend an evening with The Glam Network over cocktails, dinner, and awesome gift bags at Beaumarchais in the Meatpacking District. I sat at Table 5 which apparently was the coolest table in town because I got to meet the nicest girls ever.

Thank you to The Glam Network and American Express!!!
This afternoon, I was high
rollin’ sailin’ on the Atlantica from Chelsea Piers to celebrate summertime and all things essential with Hawaiian Tropic and their latest product, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ lotion sunscreen. NYC-based fashion bloggers were treated with cocktails, lunch, and amazing gifts as we sailed along the Hudson River.
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ lotion sunscreen is the only sun protection with extra luxurious hydrating ribbons to pamper your skin with 12 hour moisturization. With hydrating ribbons infused with luxurious silk protein and rich shea butter, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ sunscreen pampers and protects skin. Available in SPF 12, 30 and 50, the new sunscreen provides safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection that won’t break down in the sun, along with nourishing antioxidants, exotic island botanicals, a warm tropical fragrance and a lightweight, non-greasy feel.
I invited my wonderful friend Kendyll to join me as my guest, and we had a total blast gabbing and hanging out on a boat. We managed to make our way to the upper deck before anyone else, giving us first dibs to choose from a variety of sunglasses that were presented on all the deck tables.
