Nothing gets me more excited than an event celebrating beauty/fashion and food in one place…that’s exactly what Lianne Farbes (The Makeup Girl) and Kristin Booker (Fashion.Style.Beauty) successfully did last week at Ted Gibson‘s salon with her Cocktails & Couture event! My throat was actually hurting afterwards from talking all night to so many wonderful people…that is while being served Starbucks’ frappucinos and their java ice cream.
A huge thank you to Lianne for inviting me — I don’t expect anything less from someone who co-hosting the amazing NYFW Mixer last Feb!
