Refinery 29 | THE SHOPPING BLOCK

Last week I went to the Refinery29 shopping block at the Houston Premium Outlets. Shopping, blogging DIY. I think it was a good day.( Minus the cold front leaving, and me wearing a sweater and sweating my life away.)
Local boutiques setup popup shops in this space hosted by Refinery29 and Simon.
Lol I made an Ugly tote that I want to peel everything off of.

FROM SIMON:The Shopping Block—with an event design inspired by modernist artists such as Donald Judd and Dan Flavin, as well as the art and architecture of Marfa, Texas—will provide a variety of features that appeal to the millennial audience, including:
  • Indie Boutiques + National Brands: Refinery29 and Simon will invite indie boutiques with local reach and relevance to participate in The Shopping Block. This will create an interplay between the native, in-market shopping experiences and the very best national retail brands, all within the mall landscape.
  • Stylist Concierge: The Shopping Block attendees will receive curated style guides that highlight fall’s biggest trends, and where to shop them at Simon retailers.
  • Guest Hosts: At each event, city insiders—chosen from local tastemakers in style, fashion and lifestyle industries—will act as hosts.
  • Sweepstakes: Shoppers can participate in a digital sweepstakes at the event for a chance to win retail prizes, valued at a minimum of $1,000, from Simon premier retailers.
  • Beauty Bars: Makeup artists will be on-hand at pop-up beauty bars to give shoppers mini makeovers, and share the latest beauty tips from the experts at Refinery29.
  • DIY Station: The Shopping Block guests will have an opportunity to personalize tote bags, taking inspiration from Fall 2014 runway trends.

Skinny Sipping Mixer- Pink Shopping

Langford Market held a mixer event sponsored by Skinny Girl cocktails, skinny wraps, and the Rose foundation. This month is Breast Cancer awareness month and the Rose foundation gave guests an opportunity to shop pink looks featuring 2 breast cancer survivors as well as provided guests with information on their foundation and breast cancer support.
The two models above with roses are actual breast cancer survivors that were nice enough to share their story and how the Rose Foundation helped benefit them.

The Rose reduces deaths from breast cancer by providing access to screening, diagnostics, and treatment services to any woman regardless of her ability to pay. They have doctors that specialize in screening and provide support throughout the entire process of dealing with this common cancer.

Loved all the pink looks from the event and loved information that the Rose foundation members provided.
KEEP RAISING AWARENESS!

Manicure Monday: Dripped HTX


Equipped with my new Iphone six my friend Carla from Houston's Dripped nails invited me over to use my nails as a blank canvas. Once Dripped nails gets fully launched I will tell you more about it! We opted for a nude and black combination and I think they came out super cute! I've been getting lots of compliments on them and can't wait for Dripped to open up! You know I love me some nail art. Before you ask, YES these are my real nails. I have had strong, long nails my whole life. 


HOUSTON NAILS AT THEIR FINEST.
