It’s been a long time coming but I am absolutely thrilled to finally be reporting on my very first StyleFixx event. As you may or may not know, StyleFixx, is a “unique mix of shopping, entertainment and sampling from local and national brands” for bloggers, designers and fashionistas in the areas of Boston, New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles. Attendees receive swag bags filled with sweets and treats, enjoy wine, beer and food samples, and indulge in spa and beauty treatments. It’s basically like trick-or-treating for the fashionably inclined or CollegeFest for the twenty-something young professional who knows the difference between lipgloss and lipstick. In other words, it’s absolutely fantastic and what made it even better was having my best friend Angelique to take it all in with me!

Just to give you an idea of the kind of perks associated with an event like this, some of the brands represented included; Mythic Oil (which I have yet to try), LUNA Bar, Udderly Smooth, Pretzel Crisps, Boston Sports Club and many more. Needless to say, it was an extremely task evening for both Angelique and myself!

As if our night couldn’t get any better, Angelique and I each enjoyed a couple of slices from The Upper Crust Pizzeria and mini-bottles of Sparkling Pink Moscato as we explored booths, freebies and information from vendors like Mix 104.1, Choffy and Polar Beverages. (If you haven’t tried Polar’s new Strawberry Champagne soda, I highly recommend it. Grab some to share with friends a the holidays!)

Concierge hair styling? Yes please!
Beauty treatments too? Yes please!

I didn’t have any idea there would be so many beauty treatments available. MiniLuxe manicures, styling bars by Camille Albane and make-up trials by Smashbox, this event was the perfect way to see a different side of the city, of fashion and of beauty than I’m used to. Evening venturing to the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts was outside of my typical city scene but I’m so glad for the adventure!
