Last night, I hosted Holly Jolly Lash Bash at The Hive, Philadelphia’s all-female coworking space. Our sponsors included Deneen Marcel Lashes, Pinkberry, Philly Blog Love, It’s a Cupcake!, DavidsTea, and Andre Richard Salon.

Pinkberry is swirling daily at three area locations: Marlton, NJ, King of Prussia and Bryn Mawr.

EVENT RECAP: Holly Jolly Lash Bash

We started with wine sponsored by Jessie Holeva, editor of Trend Hungry and founder of Philly Blog Love, and savory & sweet cupcakes from It’s A Cupcake! while everyone networked.

As life coach and editor of, I talked about the importance of gratitude, mindfulness and meditation to help you get through the holidays with less stress and more joy than ever before. We recorded the guided meditation I took you through.

Hopefully guests also got to experience the brow bar and lash teases sponsored by Deneen Marcel Lashes. Their pros, Twana Miller and Alexis Pena, loved how excited all the guests were with the services.

We hope you’re enjoying the products and other things in your swag bag, which included a $50 Deneen Marcel Lashes gift card (woot!), travel size hairspray from Andre Richard Salon, $10 Pinkberry gift card, and a small tin of holiday tea from DavidsTea.
