With Saturday’s near perfect weather, Uptown Girl Entertaiment LLC's, Cocktails and Glosses had all the right elements to make the day even brighter! The summer shopping and beauty soiree, held on Hotel Helix's tranquil outdoor patio, included spray tanning sessions by Amor Mona, Helix cocktails, and professional makeup/lip gloss consultations. Attendees were treated to gift bags filled with goodies like complimentary drink tickets, lip glosses, mascara/brow gel, and Uptown Girl’s signature “Thank You Darling” thank you cards. Vendors providing the essential summer retail therapy included LC Beads, Clutch and Amor Mona.
With sweet deals on summer apparel, jewelry, candles, and purses, it was time to shop! The environmentally-friendly Amor Mona Soy Candles, which looked like refreshing tropical cocktails with their cute little umbrellas, caught everyone’s attention. Not only did they smell incredible (love the “Relaxation” scent), but melt into a luxurious moisturizing lotion that you can dip your fingers in, even while lit (yup, tried it)! And, since one can never have too many purses, snagging one of the beauties from the Clutch table was in order.
The day wrapped up with a lip gloss consultation by Bailey Sessoms, CEO of Uptown Girl Entertainment LLC, who is already gearing up for the next shopping extravaganza, Urbanista Flea Market, to be held on August 22nd, also at Helix! Part of the proceeds from Urbanista Flea Market will benefit Habitat for Humanity of Washington DC. A day of shopping AND helping a great cause! Fabulous signature Uptown Girl lip glosses and thank you cards will be available for purchase in August on Uptown Girl’s website.
