A Night in the Spotlight

I was invited to a blogger night out last week where we got makeovers from stylists at the Charles Scott Salon in Rocky River courtesy of Elle Magazine & Wella Professionals. The event was put together by Canopi and was technically my first real “blogger” event, so it was a whole new experience for me!

I was greeted by the friendly staff at the salon, given a glass of champagne, and escorted to a stylist for some great dry styling tips! The beautiful Coryn gave me a beachy look using a regular curling iron & it was super easy and turned out really cute! I will definitely be trying her tips at home (and hopefully it turns out just as well). Since I’m fairly new to this whole blogging thing, I obviously don’t know most of the other Cleveland bloggers personally yet, but I did get to meet Maria from The Style Letters, Emily from Sixteen Oh Eight, and Rachel from CLE Fashionista (and her friend Alexa)! I also saw Katie from Call Me Trouble and Julie from Wearing Mascara again {I met them originally at the MedWish BandAid Bash, which I still need to post about – oops! Getting to that ASAP…}

I was also given a manicure & a makeup touch-up — I felt so girly and pampered!

Side note – I am horrible at painting my nails, so this is literally the BEST they’ve ever looked. And the nail polish is fantastic – it’s been 5ish days and I’ve only slightly chipped one nail, which is a huge improvement to the norm with nail polish for me.

I was also given a tour around the salon, which is truly gorgeous! I’ve never heard of the Charles Scott Salon & Spa before, but it’s definitely a place I will go back to!

After the event, Rachel & Alexa invited me to join them for wine & pizza at Tartine just down the road. It was fun sitting outside in the beautiful weather and chatting.

I ended the night by meeting up with my BFF Katie at Around the Corner in Lakewood for another quick drink before heading home.
