The holidays are a busy time of year, but I’m inviting you to two events this month that should definitely be on your calendar! I promise you’ll get some serious FOMO if you don’t attend. Read on for details!
Winter Glam Wonderland
Winter Glam Wonderland
December 8th, 6:30 – 9:00 pm
Bourbon Adams Morgan
2321 18th St. NW, Washington, DC 20009
Confession, I’m terrible at anything that has to do with makeup. I’ve pretty much been wearing the same products since high school with a few upgrades here and there. When Dani of Blonde In The District shared that she was hosting a makeup tutorial pop-up at Bourbon I was super excited and immediately asked if the makeup artists from FN2S Artistry would teach me how to contour – the answer is yes, my friends. The best part is proceeds from the event will go to My Sister’s Place DC, a shelter for domestically abused women and children so I can’t think of a better event to attend to brush up on my non-existent makeup skills! The event will include one-on-one makeup tutorials, holiday hair tutorials from Illusions of Georgetown (I’ve raved about them previously!), swag bags, a raffle, live entertainment, drink specials, small bites, and pop-up shops from local retailers including Bailiwick Clothing, Illusions of Georgetown, Meet the Curator, Park Lane Jewelry, Refine Boutique, Tryst, Whistle & Wild, Zophia. Plus, you get a free glass of champagne if you bring an item to donate to the shelter.
Streetmarket 2016: A Curated Holiday Pop-Up
Thursday, December 15th, 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
3 Bethesda Metro, Suite 140, Bethesda, MD 20814
My company, Streetsense, is hosting its second annual holiday Streetmarket and this year I’ve been heavily involved with the planning so the event is near and dear to me. Featuring a curated lineup of local vendors, restaurants, and bars, the event is free and open to the public! Guests will be able to enjoy complimentary cocktails from Casolare, craft brews from Bluejacket Brewery, wine, and small bites while perusing some of DC’s hottest up-and-coming brands. There will also be an interactive photo booth, virtual reality demonstrations, and we’re working on lining up a surprise experiential demo! The vendor lineup includes Sill Life, Typecase Industries, Whistle & Wild, District of Clothing, Maketto, Honeycomb, Paper Horse, Red Apron, Curated, Mallory Shelter Jewelry, Sword & Plough, Foxwood Co., Be Clean, Cherry Blossom Creative, and Love Rocks. The event will be held in the Streetsense office (woo come see where I work everyday) and is directly on top of the Bethesda Metro so it’s super accessible. I hope to see you there!
