My head is still spinning from this weekend. What a heady adrenaline-filled time.
I arrived in the city with Elke meeting me at the Port Authority, we grabbed a cab and headed to the Marriot in Times Square where we met up with Erika. Got settled into my room and then Elke worked her magic on my eyebrows (which look fab). Julia and her friend Daphne arrived, then Ellen, Lianne and Elke’s assistant Lindsay. As we got ready to head out to Bryant Park, I had the pleasure of Lianne doing my makeup (yay!)
We got to Bryant Park and while we waited for Heather Park from MAC Cosmetics, photographers were snapping pictures of Lindsay (who is gorgeous by the way). We headed in and got exclusive access to the MAC area of the tent. People were watching us and snapping pictures, which we found amusing. We listened intently as Bianca from MAC gave us the scoop on Spring beauty trends and some behind the scenes stories on MAC. I got to chit chat with Lauren, meet Marina (who is amazingly gorgeous), meet up with Tina (the ring Tina my gawd!), Diane and Nichelle.
As we left Bryant Park, we met up with Teri and headed over to Jack’s for the best salad I have ever eaten! Plus, the atmosphere was awesome–they lit candles midway through our lunch and turned off the lights. Loved it!
Back to the hotel to relax for a few minutes and then off to Sephora! I picked up some products to review on Makeup Minute and then shortly afterwards met up with my co-worker at Pierce Mattie, Suzanne (another gorgeous girl!) I dragged her to Godiva for a delish Dark Chocolate Raspberry shake and some chocolates before she had to head back home.
Then we were all off to Arno’s Ristorante for dinner with Erica from Lancome. I was lucky enough to get to sit right next to her and talk about beauty blogging and also PR’s interaction with bloggers. Another great salad and the staff at Arno’s was great! Leslie also ate with us and was fun to talk to.
