As an "Urbanite-ista" : An Urban Fresh Socialite/Fashionista, lol I have the privilege of attending many different parties, gala's, & events in & out of town. I've been to some of the most elegant, & some not so elegant of events. Let's admit it, we all love anything FREE & even better... GIFT BAGS! I've gotten "swag bags" & have been extremely disappointed with the lack & quality of samples I received that I'd (let alone anyone else ) would never use & books I'd never read... I'll leave those other national "shopping" events nameless!... BUT Pretty City's Beauty Event was different altogether. It was intimate,elegant,FUN & filled with lots of pampering!
I got my eyebrows shaped (Amazing Job Laura B. of Salon Euphoria!) I got a massage, a facial massage, paraffin wax for my hands, a mani, a make-up application, the option to get my hair done, which I opted against because it was already LAID, wine & a chance to shop with some of the best vendors! But furthermore, I was quite impressed with Pretty City's event! Everyone was catered to & seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves. I attended last years event at Estate as well, but this year's focus seemed to be pampering the guests, & they definitely improved on all aspects! You left feeling gorgeous, & special to have been there! Now, for the part we've all been waiting for, THE GIFT BAGS... I was literally blown away with the FULL SIZE, useful contents of the bags! This has to be the absolute BEST gift bag I've ever received from any similar shopping/beauty event! Everyone received the same things & no one thing ran out. My only complaint was that they wouldn't allow me to take my extra gift bag for my guest at the end of the night after all guest received their bags. I was meeting up with my guest after the event b/c she couldn't make it down in time. Every other "shopping/beauty" event always allows you to retrieve the gift bags especially if you have the tickets to receive them. But that doesn't change my opinion on the event. I can not wait until the next Pretty City Boston event!
Smooches ... Until the next review, Heleena Norvette (Boston Fashion Week 2011)
