Tomorrow evening I am attending an event I’ve been looking forward to for weeks: InStyle magazine‘s Summer Social, organized by Single Edition Media. InStyle is, hand’s down, my favorite beauty and fashion magazine.
Over the years, I’ve shared many articles and products with you that I first read about in InStyle. And although I’m not in InStyle’s target audience (median age 38!), I am a subscriber who consistently gets fashion and beauty takeaways from my monthly fix. To me, that’s the beauty of well-written and well-researched content: I read it and come away with a nugget (or 10) of information that speaks to me. Makes my life just that much better.
Do you feel that way about any magazine you read regularly?
In addition to a bit of pampering by InStyle, a number of other brands will be present and I’m curious to see what they have to show me. Some — like Essie, Sally Hansen and Sun Chips — are long-time fave brands of mine so you can imagine how excited I am to see if they are introducing any new products that I can share with you. My love affair with Sally Hansen spans decades. It started with the company’s original Hard as Nails polish. And Essie nail polishes? They come in some of the most flattering shades for my skin tone.
In addition, I’ll have a chance to learn more about brands I’m not yet familiar with — Brancott Estate, a New Zealand vintner, will be there. You know I love wine so that company and me? A perfect match!
Peony is a new-to-me company that sells feminine, yet edgy clothing for active lifestyle women. On the company’s website, I saw a black tank with chiffon detailing that I covet!
Are you devoted to any of these brands? Is there anything you want me to research for you while I’m at the event? Let me know.
