I was not compensated for this post. Thanks to @NYCLaurenBeth for attending the event on behalf of Raising 3 Savvy Ladies.
The fabulous ladies from Getting Gorgeous Audrey McClelland and Vera Sweeney set the bar very high for this event. It was a fun-filled day with pampering by CVS’s beauty team and mingling with the latest brands on new products and fabulous sweets from Bacardi.
My morning started off by checking out the new line of Dial kids Body & Hair wash. I think it is great that they are now age specific on their products. How many times do you let your children use your own shampoos and think it is ok in the shower or bath? Think again. The new Body & Hair wash was developed with pediatric dermatologist for you kid’s perfect skin. Dial has specialized formulas for children ages 2-5 and 6-10 this allows parents to make smart choices for healthy skin. Check out some of their promotions here.With 2 new scents Berry Cool or Watermelon for the 6+ crowd either is a perfect match, for 2+ the peachy clean is such a great light scent and not overpowering. These new products are sure to make bath time so much fun.
I was also able to check out Tide and their new PODS laundry detergent. Tide Pods come in 3 scents Spring Meadow, Ocean Mist & Mystic Forest. Ocean Mist is my favorite, I have being using these for a while now and they are so convenient; a major help if you don’t have a washer in you home/ apt just take a few with you on the go and no worries of lugging a big bottle of laundry detergent with you. These PODS were designed to bring laundry in line with other practical innovations to streamline our daily lives. who doesn’t like saving time? The Tide PODS are so compact, work on multi types of stains allowing you to say adios to the guesswork involved and they work just as well in cold water saving you money and energy.
If you are not a Tide user like I am or want to add a little more scent ,then check out what Downy has to offer UNSTOPABLES an in-wash Scent Booster. The scents will last as long as 12 weeks which is great for towels and sheets that might be sitting in the closet for some time. What a great idea just add a cap to every wash and your clothes will keep smelling just as fresh from the day you took them out of the wash until the day you wear them.
With the sun shining and summer coming into full swing skin protection should be on top of everyone’s mind. Coolibar offers protective clothes, SPF clothing, sun hats, sun protection swimwear, sunglasses, umbrellas, sunscreens and sunscreen. Coolibar’s clothing offer sun protection from damaging ultraviolet rays, their clothing has a UPF of 50+. With skin cancers becoming very common, it was great to hear that as a company they are recognized by the Skin Cancer Foundation , Melanoma International & Sunaware. I will be sporting my oversized hat this summer, the wide brim covers your entire face keeping you protected.
While you are protecting your skin, don’t forget about your eyes. Foster Grant has a fabulous selection of trendy affordable sunglasses. How often have you lost a pair of sunglasses? No need to worry now you can buy several of these for the price of a designer’s pair. No one will no the difference.They look so great on and your eyes will be protected.
Who doesn’t want to look great while working out? Heidi Klum has partnered with New Balance to create a line of work out clothing to take you from the street to the studio with a hint of Heidi’s sophisticated style. New Balance also has a new Ballet Flat called Well2Go, which has unique twist which allows use to choose your comfort with its reversible insert. One side has a super comfy memory foam and the other has massaging pods. What a great idea for walking around the city, a great go to shoe when taking a break from heels.
When going to social media events many people know you by your twitter handle or your blog and not always by your first name. Well Haute Tags has come up with a unique way to showcase who you. Haute Tags™ are a playful and chic way to express your passion for social media, the circles you belong to or simply a way to network and start-up a conversation. Social networking can go beyond the virtual and become reality with Haute Tags™.
Do you like the idea of giving home-made cards but don’t have the time or aren’t crafty enough to come up with great phrases then you must check out Love Jac cards they have the best selection from photo mounted, custom designed and even a card of the month club. All cards are handmade and photos are ones taking by the artists/designers themselves. They even have cards designed for a few of NYC’s boroughs. What a unique way of tell someone Happy Birthday or I Miss you. Check them out on Facebook
When it comes to fashion looking your best is must. Check out Thread & Butter they offer a collection of sophisticated wardrobe staples for curvy fashionistas. Being plus sized doesn’t mean you have to wear oversized, dumpy clothing, you still have a shape and want to show it off. Their look book is filled with such gorgeous pieces that is meant to fit and flatter.
Now that you have the right look you need to accessorize with Jade & Jasper. Jade & Jasper offers a line of jewelry that will take you from day to-night with many pieces to choose from you can mix and match your style and wear these pieces anywhere. To learn more check out their site
After all the chatting with everyone, it was time for a drink and who better than Bacardi to mix up some cocktails for everyone. With their line of ready to serve drinks all you need to do is add some frozen fruit chunks so you don’t water down you drink and enhance the flavor of your drink. To learn more about the fabulous Bacardi Classic Cocktails check out their Facebook page. Summer is almost here and these drinks will keep you cool and refreshed.
That looks like it was a great event! I am definitely checking out the New Balance flats too.

That looks like a cool event. I just checked out the New Balance site and they have some new shoes made for water that look super comfy, and great for waterparks. And I’m glad Dial is making age specific products!
