You know those moments when your home drinking an organic Pinot Noir going over your work emails and suddenly you see an e-invite and can’t help it but smile? Well, as a lifestyle blogger I tend to receive a few of those every week and, even though you would think I would attend every single one just for the fun of it, I try to follow a guideline I created when I started WTS. You see…a little more than a year ago, I made myself the promise of never promoting a brand or company I don’t believe in or don’t see fit with the WTS conscious concept. And attached to that promise, comes a long research I perform before I RSVP to events or say yes to working with certain brands. I applied that same process to The Creative’s Loft’ e-invite. Let’s start by stating that it was the cutest and most well designed invitation in the history of invitations…like EVER! Secondly, if you live in Miami, you’ve probably already heard of Adrienne and her company The Creative’s Loft but… in case you haven’t…she designs and organizes unique, beautiful, vivid and breathtaking events in Miami through which she’s able to transport all guests to an Avatar world full of life! Every corner. Every detail. Every flower. Every napkin. So of course, when I got the invite I immediately jumped out of my chair, and even higher when I found out the event was meant to bring Miami’s top bloggers together for a morning of mimosas, croissants and beauty. The theme: Paris! The beauty brand they wanted to introduce to us: Nuxe. Now…I’m going to be straight honest and admit I had never heard of Nuxe even though it’s one of France’s best selling beauty brands. For that reason, and before I could yell YES to the invite, I decided to go to my dear friend Google for some help. There are two things I always ask Google when researching a beauty brand: 1) does it test on animals? (most beauty and cleaning brands test their products on animals) 2) is it natural? (whatever you put on your skin goes directly into your bloodstream). And to my surprise, Nuxe is not only natural and cruelty-free but its brand name is the combination of “Nature” and “Luxury”! Two things I try to inspire through WTS! That right there said it all. At least that’s what I thought until I found myself sitting at the Gale Hotel’s rooftop surrounded by Miami’s bloggers listening to Nuxe’s brand representatives tell us how their best selling product- The Huile Prodigieuse Body Oil- is made from 6 plant-based oils and can be used on our skin, hair and nails. And there I thought the word “Nuxe” had made me smile as big as possible. Little did I know this Parisian Beauty brunch would give my cheeks some exercise! Honestly guys. I couldn’t stop myself from smiling throughout the 3-hour event! From the colorful flower stand next to a green bike at the rooftop’s entrance, to the mimosas we were welcomed with, to the inspiring women all together choosing to bond with each other rather than seeing one another as competition, to these natural and cruelty-free beauty oils, lotions and anti-aging products. Wow! Wow! Wow! To more planet-loving and inspiring events like this. Please!!! Xx
Ps: I also received a goodie bag with 6 Nuxe products!! Can’t wait to share the details with you on instagram and snapchat!
