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
When 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!
I 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!
Excited to be back again to share more tips with you on planning a successful event! Since I have launched this series, I’ve witnessed things at events where I could definitely share some of the tips I have mentioned thus far, and I’m glad that my readers are enjoying what I have to say! So, what tips do I have for G-I?
My goody bag from the Night of Beauty event – It was definitely a GREAT bag filled with good things!
- Goody Bags: Goody bags are a great bonus to any event and something that many attendees look forward to. One thing you should make sure of is that there are GOOD or even GREAT things in that bag, especially if I’m paying to be at your event. Putting some coupons, brochures, or flyers in a bag IS NOT a goody bag, it’s an informational kit. Product samples, promotional products, complimentary passes, food and even drinks makes a fab goody bag.
All Hands on Deck – everybody helps out!
- Hands on Deck: When producing large events, everybody in the office should help with something. Whether you’re running the show or not, we all have to get our hands dirty sometimes and do some schlepping. Nobody should fell like they are “too above this” to not assist. One thing I pride myself on is helping out with anything from cleaning tables to moving boxes. Heard of the term “All hands on deck?” That means yours too.
Winning an iPad is always a crowd pleaser!
- Incentives: There are different goals and benchmarks to achieve when planning an event, and sometimes incentivizing the task allows for quicker completion and more excitement! If there is a tedious task, the pot is always sweeter when there is an offer mixed in such as a half day off, free lunch, or gift card. However you want to incentivize it, be my guest! Also, attendees love raffles, door prizes and anything they can win!
Enjoy the tips for this week and feel free to share your own tips!
