Before we knew it, the day was gone and it was time to GLAM UP for the Cynthia Rowley presentation. I excitedly/nervously touched up my makeup from a long day of running around the city and changed clothes. My biggest fear was not being dressed well enough or too much. I was so stressed about this that I basically gave myself a mini anxiety attack Tuesday morning prior to flying out. Thankfully Jason was able to help me calm down a bit! Ok, so I’m sure some of you are thinking, “Whoa, she was doing the most!” And I will admit, YES, I probably was…but HEY! This is a BIG DEAL. It’s not everyday that you can say you got to attend a super groovy fashion presentation in conjunction with Birchbox. Ok, I’m moving on with the story. Promptly at 6:25 PM, Katelyn and I went downstairs to find a fancy smacy black SUV to transport us to the Paramount Hotel. We felt pretty cool.
We successfully made it to the Paramount Hotel in just 10 minutes with a few minutes to spare. So we marveled at the beautiful space. Shortly after, we were escorted upstairs by a Birchbox team member to take part in the backstage fun. And here’s what it was like….
Cynthia Rowley Presentation
Seeing all of the models get their hair and makeup done was by far one of the most exciting parts for me! Often times we see this in movies, but it was pretty stinking cool to experience it first hand. All of the commotion in such a tiny space was amazingly impressive.
Birchbox was there being AWESOME per the usual, providing sweet treats and birchbox goodies. Such a great atmosphere.
Shout out to Michael Stewtart for showing Katelyn and I a handy little photography lighting trick with this photo! You’re awesome!
According to Katia, my jacket was extremely soft and cuddly!
Juliette from Birchbox! Absolutely adore this girl. Kind isn’t the word to describe how wonderful she is.
Aerial dancing, anyone?
And last, but certianly not least…here’s my full look from the evening. I must admit, I was beyond pleased with the final outcome. Fashion styling WIN! woot woot.
