New York Fashion Week: Rolando Santana

On Monday night Rolando Santana’s SS 2013 collection hit the runway. His collection featured various shades of blues and greens along with touches of coral. The collection featured very feminine pieces which can be expected from spring collections. As the models worked the runway the collection evolved from ready to wear to red carpet ready. Rolando also collaborated with Manolo Blanik who debuted two shoes on the runway.
The final walk showcased all the models walking the runway in the same dress but in different hues. A simple change in color showcased the beauty of a Rolando Santana dress.














Relax & Refresh with Harper Monroe Spa

On Saturday The Diva Lounge & Jones Magazine held a Relax & Refresh event with Harper Monroe Spa at We Work Lounge in SoHo.
Guest were able to sample products from luxury health & beauty brands including La Bella Donna Cosmetics, iLike Organic Skin Care, Spa Ritual nail collection, Thymes fragrance collection, Tea Forte Gourmet Tea, and My Spa Water.

Harper Monroe is a mobile spa which brings the comforts of the spa to your home. You can gather a group of friends and have a spa day all in the comfort of your own home. Relax and Refresh allowed you to purchase some of your favorites spa items so you can have that spa experience at home. I had a fun time chatting I up with the vendors and learning more about their products. Being able to bring the spa experience home with you is a concept anyone would love.

Brooklyn’s newest hot spot, Brooklyn Swirl

Brooklyn’s newest hot spot is the Brooklyn Swirl, where they are serving up mouth-watering flavors like Kiwi Strawberry, Peanut Butter and Red Velvet. This weekend they invited the neighborhood out to sample some treats.

The event was hosted by Pynk Magazine, Blue Magazine, and  Stuff Fly People Like.

I had the Kiwi Strawberry with Mango blend which  provided a much-needed cooling from Saturday’s sun. Brooklyn Swirl not only serves tasty cool treats, their space is also home to monthly movie and poetry nights. There is also an outdoor patio where you can sit and people watch.

If you are in the neighborhood you should definitely stop by Brooklyn Swirl.  Brooklyn Swirl is at 445 Marcus Garvey.
