Jessica Wang from @notjessfashion introduced a Mother’s Day themed contest open to any NY/NJ follower to join her at an exclusive brunch event at The Shops at Columbus Circle. To enter, you simply had to comment on her IG pic with the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
My response was to surprise my mom with plane tickets, because she always wanted to travel the world – and she’s afraid to travel alone. I know that one day, hopefully soon, I will be able to make this a reality.
I was chosen out of a lucky handful to attend the event on May 1st, along with a plus one of my choosing. I brought along my crazy, loving babe Jenny and couldn’t have been happier to experience this awesome opportunity with her by my side (meaning: two awkward turtles).The set up was super nice. There were podiums showcasing selections for The Spring Edit from various companies, such as Michael Kors, Diesel, Links, etc., as well as the 3 style influencers present: The Fashion Guitar, Not Jess Fashion, and Retro Flame. There were complimentary drinks, from Perrier to coffee, tea, or Mimosas! There were also little finger sandwiches, croissants, pastries, and fruit (that I didn’t get a chance to capture). All of the guests were able to socialize with each other, as well as the influencers. That’s when I got the opportunity to speak with Jess and she is such a sweetheart. Later on each influencer spoke to us about their selections and what the perfect Mother’s Day gift would be. And as we left, we each got a bag of goodies – including exclusive discounts and promotions from featured companies, an umbrella, a notebook, perfume, a facial cleansing set, and so much more. Overall, it was such a lovely event and experience! P.S. I apologize about the lack of quality in these pics. Didn’t bring the DSLR!
