Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a great week. I’m excited so why don’t we jump right in to it. Yesterday I couldn't contain myself at work because at 5:30p I was headed out to attend Angela Simmons e-commerce launch party! The party was a shop, sip, and mingle held at the Henri Bendel flagship on 5th Avenue. I don’t know many people in New York so I attended the event alone, I love Ang just that much (yes I called her Ang..LOL). The event had a nice set up and after I arrived about 30 mins late it was great to see everyone mingling, eating, and waiting for Angela to arrive. I joined the crowd and about 15 mins was super excited as Angela walked right next to me to take her spot near the DJ.
She thanked everyone for coming out, took millions of pictures and mingled in the crowd. Her e-commerce is live and has some really cute pieces that are very affordable. Lauriana Mae performed three awesome songs and was such a sweetie and she mingled with everyone also.
As I was waiting in the crowd, I received an alert to my phone that I had been mentioned in a tweet. The tweet read, “Watching @angelasimmons while standing next to one of my favorite bloggers @melissachanel2 this day can’t get any better” …wait what? People know about my blog in New York? LOL! This pretty much made my night, I was happy to chat with Ashley after I looked next to me and she spoke, we hung out the rest of the event and grabbed dinner afterward.
After tons of people taking pictures and Angela walking next to me 10 times I finally asked her to take a picture. She was super nice and didn’t hesitate as I snapped a quick iphone picture.
This was a night I’ll always remember, if anyone knows me they know Angela is like my girl crush! LOL Make sure you head over to her website and check out her e-boutique, I can’t wait to make a few purchases soon.
