What can I say? I had a blast in NY! I always anticipate chaos because it’s always super busy really anytime I go to NY. I was ready for the New York Fashion Week Adventure of the #NYFWcrawl
I got to NY Monday morning and Tia of IfIWereABritGirl.blogspot.com and I stayed in a hotel at Times Square together. First thing we wanted to do was eat. We wanted to eat somewhere “New York-y” so we went to Papaya Dog and got some hot dogs! Amazing!! Next we chilled out and went shopping in Times Square spending the majority of our time in Forever 21. If you haven’t been to that location, OMG…it’s….AMAZING!!! It’s like 4 levels of Forever 21 goodness! lol I picked up a pair of tribal print jeans from there. I have NO idea they had stretchy jeans!! I also got a cute cognac color bag.
We took the Subway and had a photoshoot lol (Glad no one tried to take our cameras!!)
That evening, we went out to eat in Harlem and caught up with Danielle of TheStyleAndBeautyDoctor.com, Christina of LoveBrownSugar.com, Jessica of GlamazonsBlog.com, and Kristen of GlitterNGlue.com. I had some amazing german sausages with chicken and spinach + german potato salad! Here is my #NYFWcrawl ladies:
That morning Tia and I went to the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn for some consignment shopping! Tia racked up in amazing clothing. I got a couple of items, but didn’t find alot of stuff like I was hoping for this time 🙁 It’s always a bargain going to consignment stores!
After that we headed to the Reward Style party and had some drinks and of course, took pics! lol I am rocking my Rent The Runway Trina Turk rental.
I changed another time for the Glam Dinner I was invited to. I got to catch up with all my NY blogger buds! Here is Patrice of LookingFlyOnADime.com, Abiola of AbiolaAbrams.com, and Ty of GorgeousInGrey.com
Lol photobomb! Also with Marie Denee
I went to work in the NY office for my job and then met up with Christina and Danielle at the Cosmo For Latinas fashion week party! Peeped Adrienne Bailon looking beautiful!
So onto my skincare, hair, and clothes!!
My skincare was super great thanks to Shea Moisture. I typically don’t wear makeup everyday, but in NY for fashion week, I had to step it up. With that and the NY pollution and dirt on my face lol, I had to make sure I fully cleansed my face. I used Shea Moistures Raw Shea Butter Facial Wash while I was there!
I am so happy I brought the EDEN BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner with me! This helped me with my popular fishtail braid!
Also did wand curls using the Jojoba Monoi Hair Oil Spray to make it shine!
I was sooo happy I got to rent some really pretty (and expensive) dresses from RentTheRunway.com . I loved every single one of my choices! 🙂
I had a fabulous Fashion Week! Even though I didn’t go to any shows and deal with the chaos, I had a blast at the events and just people watching. Fashion Week is alot of fun! Until next time….
