Shecky's Girls Night Out: June 25th, 2009

Today's episode will be featuring the event called "Shecky's Girls Night Out", which is coordinated by sheckys.com. According to their website, Sheckys is an "online and event destination for whats cool and undiscovered in FASHION, BEAUTY and FUN with the girls.

From emerging designers to great beauty discoveries, delicious cocktails to free giveaways— Shecky's offers a wonderland for girls to SHOP, SAMPLE & SCORE the world of things girls love."

On Thursday, June 25th, 2009, my mother and I attended the New York event. According to sheckys.com, If you become a Shecky's insider by joining there mailing list, as well as reserving your spot, your entrance is free to these events. However, if you would like to receive a goodie bag that includes 100 dollars worth of products along with your entrance to the event, the ticket costs 30 dollars.

Since my initial review on the Shecky's girls night out events, I have seen that Jessica Ferro & Shecky's Media Incorporated has listened to and taken the advice and ideas of their fans and better marketed these events. You will now see my review of June 25th, 2009 event at the Puck building, as well as my reaction to the changes that Shecky's Media has made to their Girls Night Out Events.

Brush Cleaning 101

In this video, I am cleaning my Coastal Scents 7 Piece Synthetic Brush Set using Koren (EnkoreMakeup's) Homemade Brush Cleaning Recipe. This time, I took his recipe and gave it my twist, by using two different products that I think make the brushes feel even softer & smell even better.

Check out Koren's channel.
