The MakeUp Show NYC

Friday, May 13th, 2011

I am a hair blogger but I also enjoy wearing make up. I love experimenting with a variety of looks that include bold and subtle colors. So when I heard about an expo called The MakeUp Show NYC there was no way I was going to miss this event.

I plan to purchase products from natural brands in attendance and all kinds of new make up brushes. PLUS I want to see Sam Fine speak about a “Career in Make Up.” I don’t curently work in the make up industry but I am sure I will learn something from his talk. He is the best at what he does. 

There will be a preview of the show for bloggers on Saturday, May 14. I’m going. The show will be held Sunday, May 15 from 9:00am to 6:00pm and Monday, May 16 from 9:00am to 5:00pm at 125 West 18th Street in Manhattan.

Can’t wait!

The Green Products Expo

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

As a member of the press I was excited to be invited to attend the Green Products Expo that was held in New York City on April 13. The Green Products Expo is designed to facilitate conversations between media and exhibitors about environmentally friendly products and trends in the marketplace.

I decided to become a vegan in 2000 and since then I have continuously incorporated new elements to help me maintain a natural lifestyle. I still have a lot to learn and with events such as The Green Products Expo I discover new items to assist me sustain a lifestyle I desire.

Check out the photos from the event. There was a little bit of everything present.

The gift bag was an Eco-Chic “The Give Bag” which features reuseable gift tags.

Free products. I just love the Indiana Jones looking “The Real Deal” hat that was crafted from recycled tarps of Brazilian cargo trucks in an attempt to cut down on the wasting of resources.
