Last night I hosted my very first networking and vendor event with Housewives in the City. The venue, Myrtle's Punch House, was fantastic. It is in the most adorable little area of East Walnut Hills. The vibe was so laid back with the lounge seating and the beautiful fireplace on the first floor. The food and drinks were eclectic and delicious. They even created a gorgeous signature drink for our guests! I can not thank them enough for opening their doors and allowing me to use their space.
I also want to give a super special thank you to our vendors!
Jenny Pleiman with Stella & Dot was there with all of her amazing accessories. Did y'all know that Stella & Dot sold clothes now?!! I was pleasantly surprised. The tops she had displayed were so cute and she had the perfect accessories to dress them up or down. You can check out everything she has to offer on her website: stelladot.com/jennypleiman .
Lipsense by Senegence was in the house!! Being represented by lovely Emily Blanton. She had the most adorable table display and I have to say, her products can sell themselves. Lipsense is amazing and once you try it you will be instantly addicted! My lipstick stayed flawless even after hours of chatting it up and sipping hibiscus spritzers. You can join Emily's group, Blissful Beauty with Emily Blanton, on Facebook to find out how to get your hands on this long lasting lipstick
The dynamic duo, Ashley Ballman and Kelley Conner, joined us to tell everyone about EVER skin. It is a new company that boasts clinical grade, botanically derived skin care products. The products are clean. They follow European regulations meaning they are free of toxins and harmful chemicals that you may find in some other skin care regimens. The samples of the Lavish body butter that they included in the swag bags is heavenly! Kelley will also be joining us next month so if you missed them this time around, be sure to stop out!
Last but certainly not least, is our charity partner. Carly Lagory and Lisa Neff were front and center last night bringing awareness to their organization, Operation Blessing Bags. OBB collects items such as; new socks, toothbrushes, crayons, and coloring books. They put these items into nice backpack style drawstring bags and the bags are donated to local children's services agencies. They are handed out to kids who have been displaced from their homes and are being moved into foster care. Many times, these children come in carrying their belongings in garbage bags or plastic shopping bags. Carly is building this organization on the hope that these blessing bags will bring a little joy to the children as they go through what is likely a tough transition. I have never met two women more passionate about helping other people. They were an amazing addition to the evening.
