Benefit Cosmetics - Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday! I was at a Benefit Cosmetics event in Rye New York, Hosted by Gilt Group and Hpnotiq as a sponsor. It is fun going to these events with my Niece Daniela since she is living with me and working in the City. I wish my Niece Kristina, her sister lived closer so she could come also. The evening started being greeted by Gilt Group Hostess (sorry I forgot her name). She had recognized us from another event! Also there to greet us was Kelly from Benefit Cosmetics. The store is amazing so adorable and sweet. We received a choice of eyebrow waxing or threading. Both me and Daniela chose the waxing. After we sat and got our make-up done by Kelly and then we had pretty purple drinks made by a cute Hpnotiq Mix Master with a glow stick inside the glass and enjoyed the adorable "Sweets" Bar. The store is Pink and yellow and the girls wear the cutest vintage aprons. Benefit has the cutest packaging. Everything is so vintage / retro decorated. There were 2 women Kelly "dolled" up before me and Daniela and they were concerned that Benefit Cosmetics was too "young" for them. I yelled Nooooooooo!! lol They looked so amazing and they bought 1 of everything! Everyone from every age will love it! I had so much fun thank you Gilt Group, Benefit and Hpnotiq!

Hop on over to Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for some Pink Saturday fun then visit with other Pink Saturday blogs....So Grab a Pink Lemonade sit back and relax! Happy Pink Saturday!!

Hello Grace,
First off, I love your name. I am a scrapbooker too. Your scrapbooking ideas are very nice. Pink is one of my favorite colors. In fact, we are going to do a "Pink" post in the future. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. Jess just did a post on Flamingos that I think you might like. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your scrapbooking ideas. My daughters travel alot, and New York is the one place they haven't been to and would love to go. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
