Girl About Town: BNO and Cocktails & Couture

That's the thing about Fashion Week. When I'm working with so many beauty and fashion clients it's nearly impossible to keep up on my labor of love. Sometimes, rather than burning the midnight oil on a post, a girl just needs her girlfriends and a cocktail. So that's what I did to get through the week.

Last Friday, September 9th, my coworker and I jumped in a cab and rushed over to Pranna Restaurant for Blogger's Night Out. The event proved to be the perfect antidote to the previous night's Fashion's Night Out festivities (or fiasco). #BNOnyc was organized by six amazing fashion bloggers from all walks of life. Their intentions? To create an opportunity for other bloggers to come together and network (or just have a great time) with drinks sponsored by Voga Italia, polishes by Zoya, glitz and glam by Send the Trend, and shopping opportunities by Shop It To Me, Sole Society, OpenSky, and Tortoise & Blonde. Hoping the girls decide to make it a bi-annual party so I can indulge again in February. Is it really too much to ask? Fingers crossed!

The next night, I met up with the girls again for the Cocktails & Couture party. The event was held at Bo Concept and hosted by the fabulous Lianne Farbes. Guests were privy to 3 specialty cocktails by X-Rated Fusion Liqueur, which I've been dying to try and was lucky enough to be gifted a small sample for my home. The event itself was so much fun - it was put together by my PR girl crush, Christina Rice of LuxeLife Media. Guests were an interesting range of New Yorkers, bloggers, fashionistas, and more. I was awestruck when Wendy Lam of nitro:licious walked by, and thrilled when LoveBrownSugar perched her gorgeous self on the arm of the sofa I was sitting on for a little chat. Love that girl!

Guests indulged in manicures by CND, hair demos by title sponsor Indique Hair, skincare tips by Specific Beauty, and the gift bag included pieces from Immunocologie, Philippe Matignon, & FRS. What's more is a few lucky guests walked away with the Clairsonic Cleansing System, which only furthered my jealous of Lianne Farbes' beautiful skin. #iWant.

Looking forward to next season's C&C party, which has already been announced for February!
