To get prepared for our The Blogger Meetup Miami Meet + Sweet event, fellow Co-founder Danielle (who blogs over at Shikshin) and I were so excited by the offer from the INGLOT store in Aventura to get our makeup done for our event! The Aventura store is beautiful – it’s so bright and colorful, it’s definitely like being a kid in a candy store! My makeup was done by Laura, and she was AMAZING! She did an incredible job, even on our tight time crunch! I am also totally in love with the foundation she used – it lasted through the Miami heat all day and night. It was the HD Perfect Coverup Foundation (I was shade 76). Thanks to the amazing team and INGLOT and the sweet ladies in the Aventura store for our beautiful looks!

Every girl needs a “Galentine’s Day”. The phrase was made popular by one of my fave shows, Parks and Rec, and it’s a day/night around Valentine’s Day where you get together with your best girlfriends to spend some quality girl time. Whether you have a Valentine or not, it’s a necessity to get in some gal-pal time! One of my closest friends and fellow fashion blogger, Danielle from the blog Shikshin, and I hosted a Galentine’s Day dinner at a local sushi restaurant with some of our girlfriends. We had a ton of fun, filled with sushi, cocktails, cupcakes and some amazing lip products from Makeup Academy! CVS Beauty Club provided all of our guests with 3 different products, and we had so much fun playing with them! Do you do a “Galentine’s Day” with your girlfriends? What does yours involve? Brunch, shopping, cocktails, spa? Share below!
