Wow!! I’m just coming up for air after Tuesdays amazing Accessorize for the Holidays event, where I showcased my ten must-buy accessory gifts for the holiday season. There’s always this crazy rush before you host an event, especially when you are speaking in front of so many savvy and stylish women – Michelle Madhok of SheFinds.com, fashion designer and Shopafrolic.com founder Liz Lange, Real Simples’ Julee Wilson, Essence Magazine editor and blogger Zandile Blay, and Accessories Council president Karen Giberson, to name a few.
A big thank you to Dasha Wellness for provide a tranquil and elegant setting. If you live in the New York area, visit them for a myriad of physical and nutritional wellness needs – it’s a one-stop-shop to better yourself. Talk about a nice holiday gift idea … gift cards to Dasha Wellness.
Also talk you to Fretzels and Glow Gluten Free for their yummy treats that keeps guests smiling and GIVEN Liquor for the liquid energy ;).
Finally, to my beloved and talented florist Vito Russo – this guy knows flowers and it’s just a bonus that he’s easy on the eye! You killed it at my wedding and with your festive coral and white present this week.
