Hey Glamazons! Alright, I know I should have posted this like yesterday (or maybe even earlier this week) but I've been swamped tried to juggle work with getting my calendar all set and ready for New York Fashion Week. It may not sound like a lot, but let me tell you, it's a beast. Now, I'm going to be super swamped actually going to the shows and still getting some work done somewhere in there...yikes! But, I can honestly say that I'm looking forward to checking out some of the backstage beauty looks being created this season and can't wait to get to my first show (Vena Cava) at MILK Studios in a bit.
In the meantime, here's a beauty list of some super fun Fashion's Night Out events that should be on your radar:
1. Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa
This place is hands down one of the best spas in the city! So, if you're looking for a nice relaxing place to come and get some emergency beauty services done, this is your place! They do everything including hair, nails and super relaxing massages. It will be open until 9 p.m.
