#NYFW Pampering Event With Glam & Qream Liqueur

#NYFW Pampering Event With Glam & Qream Liqueur

This evening I headed to a salon in Manhattan for a pampering event to kick off the whirlwind that is Mercedez-Benz New York Fashion Week. There are so many shows I’m looking forward to seeing, including BCBGMAXAZRIA tomorrow and, later in the week, Diane Von Furstenberg (9/11), Betsey Johnson (9/12), Herve Leger by Max Azria (9/13), and Michael Kors (9/14). I knew the coming weeks would be jam-packed and I really needed to take this time out to relax and enjoy some “me time.”

I had a full day of activities planned from the afternoon so I went for comfort along with style. I slipped into a red, lace-trimmed camisole, Leopard Print Peak Shoulder Blazer from the Kardashian Kollection, and black skinny jeans that I paired with strappy sandals and chandelier earrings.  I met up with my girlfriend Jill of Glamamom for a screening of Sarah Jessica Parker’s “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” and from there we headed to a little cafe for “girl talk” over lattes, before ending at a fabulous little spa downtown for some much needed pampering and relaxation. Between beauty treatments we enjoyed Qream  Liqueur, which is a delicious new cocktail that is silky, sweet, and perfect for a ladies night on the town!  I’ve always been a “sweet” spirits kind of gal, so this drink was right up my prissy little alley.  🙂 I tried both strawberry and peach, first served on the rocks, and later mixed with coconut then chocolate! Yum!  Our bartender informed us that Qream Liqueur can also be baked into cupcakes and pastries as well.

At the salon I was thrilled to run into some of my favorite beauty and style bloggers, including the always (and I do mean always) fabulous Danielle of The Style & Beauty Doctor and Christina of Love Brown Sugar.

It was also nice to finally meet Rai of Swa-Rai Fashion & Lifestyle Blog. She traveled all the way from Chicago for NYFW and is just as pretty and bubbly in person as she seems online!

After enjoying our pre-Fashion Week beauty treatments and cocktails style and beauty bloggers mingled and dished excitedly about the upcoming week and all the NYFW fun to be had! It was a fabulous event and a perfect way to kick off the fashion season!

QREAM WITH A QTM is a one-of-a-kind cream liqueur. It was created by an inspired alliance between Diageo and Grammy Award-winning musician, cultural ambassador, and style visionary, Pharrell Williams. Williams was instrumental in the development of the liqueur’s creation – from taste and bottle design to marketing and advertising. Available in the U.S. in two flavors – Strawberry Crème and Peach Crème – Qream is 99% lactose free at 12.5% ABV.
