Blog Meets Brand Presented by Single Edition Media

The lovely ladies over at Single Edition Media were gracious enough to invite me to their very fabulous event Blog Meets Brand. The venue was located downtown in Soho and of course I got lost and ended up 2 miles away. Soho and I never did make a good couple.


Once I got there (20 minutes late), there was a really awesome Delta airlines set up that looked a lot like an airport terminal, there were actual flight departure times on the screens, men that looked like pilots dressed in full uniform (whether they were or not, I’ll never know) and full displays of their new airline snacks and beverages. Very fancy.

I looked to my left and I saw a bunch of women huddled very closely to a table and of course it was the Elizabeth Arden table. At that table was so many pretty summery shades of blush and eye shadows all wrapped up in the most pretty gold packaging ever. (I am a sucker for pretty packaging I can’t lie)

I went upstairs next and saw GLO a revolutionary (my word) new way to whiten teeth. Apparently all you have to do is hookup the little device shown in the picture. Put some gel on your teeth, do it for 8 minutes for 5 days straight and WALA! You have got teeth that are 5 shades lighter!

This appealed to me because I am incredibly vain inside after I got the disaster with my teeth finally fixed I decided to do a professional whitening. The results were amazing but the pain (called zingers) were unbearable.  My girlfriend did the same treatment and she was beside herself in pain. This is fantastic because its zinger free, and cheaper than what I paid for treatment!

Next, I went over to footpetals. I met the very lovely owner who has designed little fantastic inserts for pretty much everywhere in a shoe that causes discomfort. She had pads for the base of the foot, heels, top of toes, ballerina slippers, everything. She was in some really killer heels so I give her the benefit of the doubt!


After footpetals I went over to the BluePrintCleanse table. I’ve always been very wary of cleanses but these were pretty awesome. They have a full line of juices that they recommend people drink only for 3 days to naturally clean out your system. I tried the pineapple one, it wasnt terrible. If I had to, I could probably try this!

Finally I went over to Completely Bare. I was legitimately excited about meeting them because I am a cult fan of Completely Bare. There are millions of shady spa places in NYC but the ONLY one that me and my friends go to is completely bare. Why? Its extremely clean, the customer service is outstanding and the atmosphere is extremely relaxing (which is what you need when you are about to do something painful highly uncomfortable). I got to speak with the owner who is so awesome and my new bff in my head, and she was super gracious and sweet. Love to meet strong business women that are so down to earth!

I was able to hang with Quiana from Harlem Love Birds and we sat and watched the presentation together. After that, as usual it was way past my bedtime and I grabbed my swag and got on the train home.


Thank you so much to Single Edition Media, Blog meets Brand was a great event!

Have you ever had your teeth professionally whitened? Do you wear inserts in your heels? Have you ever had a cleanse? Isn’t this an insane amount of questions?! :)

Only heel inserts I’m familiar with are the lifts that I prescribe to my patients with uneven pelvis .lol. Great post

  7. Totally agree with Josie!

    I haven’t had my teeth professionally whitened but I do the OTC version of Crest about once a year and it works fabulously!

  15. LOL! An insane amount of questions. I have trays made for me by my dentist to bleach my teeth. I get the bleach from the dentist when it’s in my budget. Works great!

    I’ve never done a cleanse all the way through.

    • I had a tray made by my dentist all those years ago but it was expensive! There were fantastic results though.

  16. You go to the most awesome events! I would like to get my teeth whitened. I was actually just talking about this with my honey. The shoe petals sound like a great idea for women…especially for non-heel walkers like me…lol! I wouldn’t mind doing a juice cleanse, if I didn’t have to work everyday! lol That could be problematic while at the workplace. lol

    • Girl I am SO a non heel walker! I have heel envy all the time! And yes to having to work everyday, I would definitely need a week off.

  17. I had my teeth whitened over 12 years ago, best investment EVER, they are still really white now. I rarely war heels, they look good but are not comfy at all. This looks like so much fun
