skincare & socializing

I had the opportunity to attend a blogger event tonight at Thann hosted by Blackbook Lifestyle (where my lovely friend Julia interns).  It was such a fun night complete with my favourite food (sushi and cupcakes); girly cocktails and free skincare treatments.  I love going to these events because of the great networking that goes on.  I invited my friend and fellow Ottawa Fashion Week intern, Amoi and we met some new faces to the blogosphere including Kat, A Fine Balance , Grace and Judy.

I wore my beloved leopard print skirt I bought at Bettie Page in San Diego (worn here, here and here) and added bright blue heels (purchased for $2 at a garage sale), one of my favourite jackets and a striped blouse for a pop of colour and pattern.  I tend to over accessorize so tonight I didn't wear any jewellery and let the clothes speak for themselves!

Julia is always sweet and crouches down to my level :)

Thann specializes in all natural and organic skin care products (the lemon grass scent is incredible!)

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
