A ladies’ night out can’t get much better than some complimentary beauty treatments…unless those beauty treatments are also eco-friendly and paired with tasty cocktails and dancing. Every first Friday of the month, Heidnseek Entertainment will be hosting a fashion, makeup, designer, and model mixer for ladies (and men) to come out and network, each with a special theme (the theme for February is “pampered”). There will be a sweet soundtrack to keep the night going as well as live photo shoots to help capture some of the beauties in attendance. Zina’s Day Spa and Salon will be providing complimentary services for this event, using only green products. Come out, have a drink, and maybe learn a few tips on how to pick the right (green) products for your morning beauty routine.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and coming off the post-holiday shopping season can leave you with little inspiration of what to buy for your special someone. Luckily, you can head over to Christopher Schafer Clothier in Harbor East on January 31st for the Fifty Shades of Red event. Shop for that guy or gal in your life from 5-8 p.m., while enjoying music from DJ Mojo Jojo and custom cocktails to go with the custom threads. Some deals you can score are 13 percent off of your entire order of custom clothing and BOGO on all of the stock ties.
The When & Where: January 31, 2013, 5-8 p.m., 1400 Aliceanna Street.
I have no comedic talent whatsoever, so I write about fashion and trends; only the most serious topics interest a gal like me. I am currently pursuing a writing degree with a minor in mass communication from Towson University. Last fall I interned at Refinery29 Washington, D.C., which led me to Baltimore magazine and the experience has been nothing short of incredible. Growing up in Baltimore has given me a certain level of awareness about personal style. Everyone here has their own style, whether or not they are trendy—and it is this individuality that makes me really enjoying being at a publication that showcases this.
