Last week, the girls and I completed our 2nd consecutive NYFW Crawl. If you’re not familiar with the “Crawl”, essentially my best blogger buddies and I get together and hit up the same events and activities as a group. It started way back in 2011 as a Fashion’s Night Out get-together and since then we’ve traveled everywhere from New Orleans (#NOLACrawl), to Barbados and the Bahamas (#CaribbeanCrawl) and the streets of NYC for #NYFWCrawl. In our second annual #NYFWCrawl, myself, Jessica of Glamazons Blog, and Lexi of LexiWithTheCurls attended a few fashion shows together, partied it up with fellow bloggers at the RewardStyle #rsNYFW shindig, got glammed up with Hard Candy and went backstage at some of our favorite shows. Here’s a glimpse at all we got into plus a fun makeup GIVEAWAY for three lucky readers from Hard Candy!
NYFW is in full swing guys! It’s only Day 2 and I’m already exhausted. One of the things we fashionistas tend to neglect during NY Fashion Week, what with our last-minute deadlines and running around, is maintaining proper beauty regimens. It’s all about piling on the makeup and running out to your shows (and also sometimes falling asleep at your laptop in last night’s mascara) – what a nightmare!
As one of the sponsors for the NYFW Crawl I’m participating in this season, Shea Moisture was kind enough to put together special “NYFW Survival Kits” for us featuring some of their best skincare and haircare products – essentials we’ll need to maintain our beauty regimens in the thick of Fashion Week madness. Here’s what’s inside:
It’s that time of the year again! NY Fashion Week is upon us for the showing of Spring 2014 trends. Yaay! *Twirls around in circles* *Gets dizzy because of baby bump*
In past years, my blogger friends and I normally take to the streets of NYC as a collective for Fashion’s Night Out. Remember our FNO Crawl last year? We ran into everyone from Solange to Teyana Taylor. Well we’ve started quite the trend doing these “crawls”. As you saw with our super fun NOLACrawl in July for the Essence Music Festival, we have so much fun with them!
NYFW is in full swing ladies and gents! What does that mean for me this time around? Last-minute deadlines, lots of high heels, swanky cocktail parties and of course tons of primping time to look my best under the tents. Though this time around I’m sporting a new accessory – my new baby bump – which means my primping parties will consist of sparkling juice instead of true cocktails. But one monkey doesn’t stop the show!
