Fashionable Fridays/Giveaway

This past Friday I attended Fashionable Fridays Event at Arrojo Salon.
This event was put together by Women's Mafia as well as the NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group.
It was an event to remember with Arrojo Hair and Makeup Stations, an eyelash station, a presentation by Jewelry Designer J. Rudy Lewis, a reading from Lora Condon of her book Spa Wars and not to mention every bloggers dream....a POP-UP Studio for photos!

 I was able to get my eyelashes done by The Lash Doctor Lora Condon who also wrote the book Spa Wars The Ugly Truth about The Beauty Industry. I must say I am in love with my lashes. They look so natural.
I was immediately drawn to J. Rudy Lewis Jewelry. Mr. Lewis handmakes his pieces using metals and leathers and even pearls. The mixture of these raw elements create a beautiful eyecatching work of art. I was lucky enough to take one home with me which I immediately fell in love with.


Lora Cordon signing copies of Spa Wars for us after her very funny reading! If you want the insid scoop on what really goes down in the beauty industry you have to get yourself a copy!



It was such an honor to get to meet Nick Arrojo. He was super sweet. I also got my hair trimmed by Nicks's apprentice Emily Carroll. 
 The POP-UP Studio was too much fun! We all had a blast taking photos.
Gift Bag Galore

So awesome I got to take home a signed copy of Spa Wars, my amazing J. Rudy Lewis bracelet, my ASTONISH Magazine and all these awesome ARROJO products I can't wait to use!
