I got to take part in a fab event last weekend, the 5th annual On the Go Beauty hosted by the fine folks at Pivotal PR. Since it was the day before Mother’s Day, it was absolutely lovely to see so many guests there with their mamas! Since my Mom is on the east coast, I brought the equally lovely Sherri, shown above getting her hair did.
We lounged in the sun, took in the view from the gorgeous rooftop of the Thompson Hotel and enjoyed pampering like proper beauty blogger G’s. We got hair services by Joico (we both left with super cute braids), manicures by Q Salon and Bellacures, and sipped delicious cocktails by Owl’s Brew (tea + booze, woo hoo!) And though we didn’t partake, makeup was provided by STILA cosmetics and eyebrow threading and mendi by Ziba Beauty.
Plus, Olay Skincare introduced their brand new Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Duo with a fun campaign where you got your photo taken and then it was broadcast on a billboard in Times Square!
Is it too early to be already looking forward to the 6th annual?
