Thank you to @NYCLaurenBeth for attending the Blog Meets Brand event.
Single Edition Media hosted an intimate event where bloggers could chat directly with the brands themselves and not just anyone speaking about the brand but the actual names and faces that we put behind these brands. Recently Delta Airlines hosted a Pop up shop in SOHO to allow fellow travelers some insight of what the new terminal 4 at JFK international will look like. We were taken inside to a classy set up with major brands encompassing the 3 story building.
When walking around NYC all day your feet will start to bother you at some point. Many women will sacrifice pain for fashion styles of high heels and wedges but founder of Foot Petals Tina Aldatz doesn’t think that has to be the case. There is an option that will fit any style of shoe to make it comfortable to wear all day long. I love the newest style that allows you to wear strappy sandals, giving a little more cushion under the ball of your foot and preventing you from sliding. I think the team at Foot Petals has thought of everything to keep you walking and feeling great in stylish killer shoes.
When you look good you feel good too!! First impressions can go a long way and when you start to speak to someone the first thing they notice about you is your smile and teeth. Dr. Jonathan Levine Dentist and Oral health expert and Co-founder of the GLO Science teeth whitening system has made teeth whitening affordable and available for everyone. This is the perfect product for someone who is on the go, can’t find the time to go and get them whitened professionally or thinks it will cost too much.
GLO Brilliant combines Guided Light Optics heat & light innovation in the patented closed-system GLO mouthpieces with it’ s unique G-Vial Whitening Gel . This Edison Award winning process activates and accelerate the whitening process for professional, long-lasting whitening results.
I love the idea that you can use this product while doing pretty much anything while at home. It just takes four quick 8- minute applications a day. You can’t forget when to reapply the gel since the light changes each time for you. It is so intuitive. You can even purchase extra mouthpieces so the whole family can share the hand-held device.
With summer quickly approaching and everyone getting beach body ready you can’t forget about shaving. Completely Bare offers many options for these who need help with the hair removal process. Cindy Barshop was on hand to give advice on hair removal and told us that you have to “feel great in your own skin”. With a highly trained staff at Completely Bare you will feel comfortable and at ease while discussing your hair removal needs from underarms to bikini area. From waxing to laser you will be taken care of. Completely Bare also offers products that can be found in CVS, Walgreens, Duane Reade and now target. You can also shop the product line here.
Now that you might have taken care of your feet, teeth and hairy situations it is time to have some pampering by Elizabeth Arden. Elizabeth Arden offers so much from skin care lines, fragrance, make up and spa treatments. While brands change and new technology comes out Elizabeth Arden has offered the same 8 hour cream Skin treatment since 1930 and it has yet to be changed, to think she was ahead off her time back then. This cream is great as an all over treatment from lips to hands, cuticle, rough feet and so much more.
Rebecca Restrepo’s (Global Make-up Artist) Travel Tips:
- Skin care is even more important when traveling. I love multi-use products and ones that can be packed in a carry-on bag. The Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum deliver so much moisture. I apply mine mid-flight for extra hydration and also use as a makeup primer when traveling.
- Skin can get very dehydrated when flying, so Eight Hour Cream is essential! I apply to my lips before every flight and use it on my hands and elbows throughout flight. I like to warm up the product in the palms of my hands before applying to my skin, helping it activate and absorb quickly.
- Someone once told me that solids travel better than liquids, so now I never go anywhere without my Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup. It provides as much coverage as I need, without making a mess in my makeup bag.
- Before I land after a long flight, the perfect pick-me-up is a touch blush to brighten the cheeks, a swipe of brightening shadow to open the eye and a dab of rosy lip gloss. To achieve this fresh and well-rested look, Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar, Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Innocence and Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Sweet Pink are my go-to products.
Elizabeth Arden’s founding belief, “To be beautiful is the birthright of every woman.”
What I love about these travels tips is that you don’t have to wear a lot of makeup to look good. Just the essentials are needed and you will be looking your best.
