*10% of the proceeds from the sale of the Kitty Bradshaw Signature Gift Box are going to Lower Eastside Service Center.
Tuesday, November 29, 2011, I attended Kitty Bradshaw’s meet and tweet, at the nRelate offices. This event, like most of her events was to benefit the bloggers in attendance (see other post) in order for us to network and build relationships with other companies and people. This is what I love about Kitty, she is always doing something to help other people. She’s not selfish with her success in blogging. Anyway, enough with the mushy stuff.
There were about 45 bloggers in attendance from all areas of the blogosphere. Some were familiar faces, such as the ladies from OSoChic, Temple of Glam, Her GoodyBag, Shoshi, Mr. Sykes, Lisa M. Barr … sorry if I missed someone. There were thirteen sponsors, and one charity. Every sponsor had the opportunity to introduce themselves & their brand. It was pretty cool learning about each brand and the brains behind it.
There were a few that stuck out to me. One being the Angel Street Thrift Shop (they sell high-end items), all purchases and donations benefit the Lower Eastside Service Center, Inc., a non-profit charity for substance abusers and individuals with mental health issues. Check it out if you’re in the market for a new bag, coat, shoes – even furniture.
Small business owner, Enovia Bedford, owner of Accessory Remix spoke about her road to creating her brand. I first met her at the Tribeca Retail Club’s Fashions Night Out where she had a booth. I picked up a pair of her chain shades (see post).
Another favorite sponsor was Barefoot wine. If you are like me, and like the not so dry wines, you’re probably familiar with their nice tasting riesling and moscato. At Kitty’s event, there were bottles of their Brut Cuvee, which retails for $10.99/bottle, and t was good. I probably could have drunk an entire bottle myself. I like this brand of wine because it’s good and affordable. Too bad I’ve never seen the Brut Cuvee in my area.
Squeem Magical Lingerie began in Brazil 40 years ago. This company interested me, especially being a new mom. I do not have a crazy gut post baby, but, I am still a little self-conscious about whatever is there. Squeem is the perfect undergarment to hold everything in its right place, and show-off the figure that was hiding.
I’m a makeup artist and beauty blogger, and love makeup, so learning about Pencil Me In Cosmetics, eyeliner pencils infused with vitamins and antioxidants, was interesting.
Love, Love the scent of the CND vanilla hand creams. I recently polished my nails with the Plum Truffle Collection ($20).
