NYC and Brooklyn Trip 2014

A long overdue post! Last year I took a fabulous trip to NYC and Brooklyn, first time in many years. My main draw was the Bust Magazine Primped Event, but so many other things made it the perfect time to visit; some close friends living in Brooklyn, Hedwig on Broadway and lucky for me the overlap of The Makeup Show. It was a perfect trip with the balance of work and play.

How sweet that before my trip Bust published and article about me!

I hadn't actually been to Brooklyn before, because the last time I was in NY was so many years ago that it wasn't the hip spot to visit that it is now. With my friends living there temporarily I was happy to have a this gem of a spot to spend time at.

On the first night the I happily stumbled upon a Tiki Bar!

The second night was Hedwig on Broadway, something I had been looking forward to since the day I heard about it! And it lived up to and far beyond any expectations.

The next day was spent wondering around Williamsburg with my friends on a perfectly beautiful day.

I found plenty of vintage while wondering around. Oh how I regret not buying these darling shoes!

And a champagne sunset rooftop toast! A beautiful way to end the day as I did some last minute prep for my even with Bust Magazine the next day.

I was so thrilled to be part of the Bust Magazine Primped event.

I met so many wonderful ladies and got to show off my two new glosses, "Fox" and "Doll" shown on these two lovely gals.

And some more "Fox" on these foxy babes!

And contrary to her business name cutie Jen of "Hey Dollface" chose "Fox" as her go-to color. 

I ran into photographer Hanah Haley who took a few photos of my set up.

My feet were tired at the end of the day!

Then there was an amazing meal at Aurora in Brooklyn, and a most fantastic cocktail!

The next day was The Makeup Show! And I was lucky to see artist Alice Lane presented by James Vincent. Another great day!

Surprise surprise I found a bowling alley. What a treat to bowl with an longtime dear friend at The Gutter in Brooklyn.

It was a great trip!
