Shopping and Sipping at a Summer Soiree

My socially savvy PR pal, Jessica Nunez, had the brilliant idea to host a Summer Soiree last week to feature some of her favorite lines and showcase some of her agency's clients on the back terrace of the fabulous home decor studio, Blue Print. So, who was seen shopping and sipping?

Alison Volk, Ashley LaRocca and Victoria Snee

Alison Volk from Tootsies was showing the hottest Summer styles.  Victoria Snee from Mix 102.9 FM was seen fingering baubles from jewelry designer Ashley LaRocca of Roc Candy Jewelry at their table.

I caught up with style reporter, Lisa Petty from The Feast, checking out Naya Shoes.  This is a fantastic line of eco-friendly shoes made with vegetable-tanned leathers and linings and natural or recycled content fabrics.  I have a pair of sandals coming that I can't wait to wear.

Onyx Nail Bar has recently opened at 4123 Cedar Springs (next to DISH)  and were on site offering polish changes to introduce new colors from Essie.  You know I had to take advantage of a little pampering!

Other lines showcased that I really liked were SmartSheild; a natural, oil-free sunscreen and self-tanner that I look forward to trying out.  May Books; designs fantastic custom notebooks and journals that can be branded with your company logo or come in many retro or textured designs.  Kori Green (wife of country music star, Pat Green) was a delight to meet and I enjoyed seeing her line of jewelry.   And everyone enjoyed tasty beverages from Cascade Ice; a fantastic new line of sparkling waters and cocktail mixers under 10 calories! Get them NOW at Sunflower Market. They are divine.

Kudos to Nunez PR for a fun media mixer. It was a unique and fun way to get her clients in front of the local media and the girl knows how to put together a great swag bag (which is paramount to me leaving happy). I give the event an A+. Here's hoping for a Fall version!!
