Night of Beauty V

NOB

Recently I attended Night of Beauty V, hosted by Spaphile and Three Day Rule.  Held at The Palomar Hotel in Westwood, this event focused on a night of pampering and discovery from some of the top health, beauty and fashion brands.  I was able to get my eyebrows shaped, back massage from Burke Williams Spa and a quick manicure from Nail Garden.

I always discover something new at these events and here are some of the highlights:

Egg White Chips

Egg WhitesWhen I saw this booth I was unsure of whether I wanted to try it or not.  I do like scrambled eggs and omelettes, but normally not egg whites.  I decided to go for it and taste them and actually was surprised that they were yummy! The salt and pepper flavor was right on target and not overpowering.  I think  I will try the BBQ flavor next!

RocksBox

RBI love jewelry and when I saw RocksBox I was curious as to what their deal was.  When I discovered that they are like the Netflix of jewelry, I was totally on board to try this service out – you get 3 pieces of jewelry at a time to wear as long as you want and when you’re ready for a new set just send it back! There is a style survey and curators who handpick items for you and it’s like having your own jewelry stylist!  Plus you can’t beat a monthly subscription of $19!

Overall, it was a good night of beauty and fun.  Thanks to all the vendors who came out to make it happen!

Fashionable Deals for a Great Cause!

Dress for Success is my favorite organization to volunteer for, and when I can give time I do.  I made sure my work schedule allowed me to partake in Shop for Success!, a 4 day pop-up shop offering designer deals at low prices.  I volunteered for the VIP night (Wednesday, December 4th), which was such a fun experience!

I’ve never worked retail before, but I know running a store takes a lot of work.  I arrived ready to jump in and help wherever was needed.  The store looked amazing, which everything nicely organized and many things to look at and purchase.  There was a silent auction, raffle prizes, open bar, a DJ and a photo booth for attendees.  Once 5pm hit, there was a line at the door for anxious ladies ready to enter and shop the night away!

I assisted in the dressing room area, getting ladies in and out, running go backs to the floor and offering my style eye where needed.  They were all playing dress up and everyone looked beautiful in the outfits they chose!  It was busy at times and that kept me moving and grooving while the DJ was spinning the tunes.  I want to open my own boutique one day, so this was helpful for me to get an idea of what it would be like.

At closing, it turned out to be a fabulous night with a great turnout and the best part is that all proceeds go to Dress for Success.  I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my evening, supporting an organization close to my heart that gives back and helps women be prepared for a professional career in several ways.

And guess what?  Shop for Success is open for 2 more days! The hours for today are 10am – 8pm and Saturday 10am – 6pm.  There are some great Holiday buys and you should bring your girlfriends.  Thanks to everyone who made this event happen!

DTLA Happy Hour in Style with SpecialH!

Sample look to wear to happy hour in DTLA!

Sample look to wear to happy hour in DTLA!

Hot new online start-up, SpecialH.com, aims to redesign the way we discover food and drink possibilities come 5 o’clock by intelligently organizing and sharing extensive happy hour listings by location, specials, and popularity, starting in bustling Downtown Los Angeles.

Urban dwellers and young professionals of Downtown LA can now find the right spot to wind down after work thanks to SpecialH.com, launching July 1. “Today’s usual happy hour sites are boring. They tell you only vague general information about what an establishment offers, but nothing that makes you want to try one place over another,” says Kevin Chu, the site’s founder and architect of technology. “I want to know where I can find $3 beers on Tuesday evening at 6pm. Nothing out there was able to do that either easily or accurately, so we created SpecialH.”

SpecialH.com digs much deeper than even popular mainstays like Yelp or GoTime into what venues offer.” Instead of simply saying a bar offers ‘$5 draft beer’ we make that information searchable and “likable,” so that patrons can get a sense of what makes an individual special great,” says Kyle Hjelmeseth, Director of Marketing. “We also worked to make that information easier on the eyes… a big difference from what is currently available to happy hour goers.” The two founders plan to expand beyond Downtown LA in the near future.

Now that we know where to go, what do you wear?  A lot of people probably head straight for a bar after work so if you are all suited up, leave the blazer behind for a more laid back vibe.  It’s great to wear separates to work so you can peel off a layer when happy hour arrives.  If there is time to put together a look, jeans with a cute top and heels or a summer dress will work for the DTLA scene.  Whatever choice you make, be comfortable and ready to let loose!

Attend the launch party on September 5th, to see first hand why SpecialH will be the “it” way to select your next happy hour! https://specialh.eventbrite.com/

About SpecialH.com
SpecialH is an exciting new start-up headquartered in the hub of up-and-coming dining and drinking establishments, Downtown Los Angeles. Our mission is to create the best happy hour search website so that friends and colleagues can find the best information to help them plan the best happy hour experience. SpecialH was created by co-founders KevinChu and Kyle Hjelmeseth, both of DTLA, to create the ultimate happy hour search experience and to remain on top of downtown LA’s ever-growing list of happy hour specials. SpecialH strives to bring a simple and elegant user experience to the world of happy hours.  Check it out at www.specialh.com.

On the Go Beauty – Mother’s Day Celebration!
