Baby it was cold outside but the Beautypress Spotlight Day for this Winter Edition was nice and warm! We filled our tummys with popped puff pastries from Ceci Cela Bakery, while I couldn’t enjoy the cappuccinos brewed by Filicori Zecchini I inhaled second hand goodness from them and blogger bud Jaleesa Jaikaran couldn’t stop cooing about how good her cup was. Thankfully Chef Roblé thought of me and brought his delicious new fragrance line Clique by Roblé and yummy cocktails made with FAIR Vodka certified organic and fair trade (awesome) that created Clique cocktails which melted all that winter cold and the woes of the day away.
My fave booth of the night of course was hands down Stylinity’s Style Stage, (I’m such a ham) where I was able to post my awesome pics to my social media accounts where fellow friends could see what I was cooing about and purchase it right then and there. Awesome sauce indeed. But before that party started my flanges (fingernails) were blown away by the amazing nail techs from Marilyn Monroe Spa using Marilyn Monroe Spa’s nail polish (which you got to keep both holla!). With fabulous pillows and towels and everything fabulous just the way Marilyn would have it you’ll be able to get your fair share of fabulosity and glamour all over the US at various locales. With a beautiful manicure, my drink and my pastries I was able to go forth and reacquaint and learn about amazing new vendors here they are below.
