Trying’ to Party? Get This App!

Hello New World,

What a glorious day, huh? I know someone out there is saying, “Stop or I’ll barf!”

Ok. So barf, then!

I’m kidding! 🙂

Anyway, in the spirit of what is to come. Yeah, I am talking about the revamp of my blog, and site. I figured that I would talk about this cool app, I learned about. Well, remember when I told you guys about the Worn Magazine Relaunch Party? There was one part I missed. The party required people to buy their tickets from Eventbrite. Here is a bit of info, about Eventbrite:

Eventbrite is an online service that people everywhere use to create, share, and join any event imaginable. Whether it’s a photography class with a local artist, or a sold-out concert in a city stadium, Eventbrite makes it happen. We enable event creation, promotion and ticket sales. We help people discover events that match their passions. And we let everyone share the events they’re creating or joining, bringing more people together around the world.”

So, this app is so cool, it helps you to get all the hot events, from free to the highest fee. In fact, the latest in the list of events is a couture runway show, in NYC. It is at the Waldorf Astoria. So get the app, and check it out!

TTYL!

What A Juicy Night!

Hello New World,

So, I was looking on EventBrite, to find a new fashion event, and I found a really good one. The Capital Area Fashion & Beauty Blogger Meetup was Wednesday. It was held at the newly renovated Juicy Couture, in Georgetown. The store looks absolutely chic. It looked so great that I wanted to ask who does the interior design, for this company. It was absolutely hot. Oh, and if you visit, check out the second floor rug. Too vicious! I know. Usually I would post and advertise a week prior to the event, but I was thumbing through my phone, that day, and grabbed my camera, and decided to go! I am so glad that I did.

So, let me give a little info on CapFABB. “The Capital Area Fashion & Beauty Bloggers (CapFABB) organization is a community where DC area bloggers can come together to connect, collaborate and organize events in the DC area. With over 400 individual members, we hope you will gain new friends within the proximity to help you grow and a platform where you can share experiences and events, ask questions and provide answers, and get any support you may need to build a better blog. In addition to the community we have, we post member spotlights and helpful articles on the CapFABB blog, send weekly newsletters, and connect you with a Google Group list that you have access to at any time. CapFABB also hosts monthly meet-ups that bring together local businesses, designers and bloggers!” (CAPFABB.com, 2012)

I will be the first to admit it, but you have to cut me some slack. As far as fashion goes, for me, I keep it cheap and simple. Also, I have never been big on names, just the look of the product. That is just me! Well, this was my first time going into Juicy Couture. I had a few friends that would buy the fake bags, but that was my first time actually seeing a real one. I know. I sound like a Gump, but hey! This event had wine and snacks, and I am not talking about the stuff that you would not touch with a ten foot pole. We are talking about homemade bacon sliders, and grilled cheese with caramelized onions. Also, they are having a sale. I believe the store was having a 30% off sale, on selected items. So needless to say, I will be going back, very soon. I saw a purse that would make an excellent camera bag! The jewelry was vicious! I saw some items I will be asking Santa for, this year. Oh and the staff, was absolutely wonderful. This store exceeded my expectations. It seems that this store prides on making sure the client receives excellent customer service. Now, as far as the clothing is concerned, I loved the looks. So, go there and check them out!

And…………,I bid everyone TTYL!

Oh yeah, I almost forgot!

LISTEN UP! Looking for a FREE PORTFOLIO? Check This Out!

Hello New World,

I have some news. Anyone who needs a portfolio, but know about the cost, that accompany portfolio sites. I have some info for you. I was looking on Twitter, and I saw that I had a new follower. It was a business, called “Crevado“. So being the curious person I am, I decided to check it out. This site was very interesting. Here is a bit of info:

“Crevado is an online tool which makes it easy for Artists, Illustrators, Photographers and other creatives to create an online portfolio so they can showcase their work online. With Crevado, it’s also possible to sell your work online – our paypal integration makes it a cinch to receive payments online.

Crevado Portfolio sites are designed to impress and are perfect for promoting you and your awesome creations. Every day hundreds of creatives choose Crevado for their online presence. ”

I know I am one to talk, I have SmugMug!

Yeah, I agree with that, but I did not find out about Crevado until after I had upped my account for another year. So there!

However, I am going to find a way to incorporate Crevado, with SmugMug. I just need to get down with some creative coding.

Hello Kitty Running for President? She Has My Vote!

Hello New World,

I don’t know about anyone else, but I am sooooooo sick of both Obama and Romney attack ads. It makes me not want to vote for anyone. Well, almost anyone.

I have made a firm decision. I will officially place my vote for my hero. Yes, dear readers. She is running for president. Hello Kitty is running, and she has my vote!

Living Social, in conjunction with Sanrio and Sephora, are asking Americans to join Hello Kitty and Tuxedo Sam for the friendship party. I believe her political stance is beauty. She had Sephora makeup artist, offering free makeovers and giving away Hello Kitty nail art and nail polish. Also, this was a great platform for Sephora. The company is introducing their new Hello Kitty cosmetic line. The new line consists of nail polishes, eye kits, and etc. Sanrio had some very cute products available, for purchase. Some of the products, like tees and Hello Kitty ears, are available for purchase, and the proceeds, will be given to American Red Cross, for the Hurricane Sandy victims.

The party will last until November 6th, from 10 am to 8pm. Yeah, those politicians need those last minute votes! I assume she is no exception. Oh, and before I forget, Hello Kitty is also doing a mixer this Sunday. So, if you are still undecided, like I was, go to the Living Social building. It is located on 918 F Street NW. Definitely check them out!

TTYL!
