Kickin' It: New York Fashion Week Prep Fun

New York Fashion Week is in full swing ladies & gents! Phew, what a whirlwind already. Between blogger pampering events, press breakfasts, runway shows, after-parties and Fashion's Night Out, there's enough in my schedule this season to fill up an entire month - in one week!

Over the past few days, I've had the amazing opportunity to attend some super chic prep events for NY Fashion Week. The first was the Qream Gone Glam pampering event on Wednesday, September 7th! The lovely folks at Qream with a Q partnered up with Glam Media to provide a group of fashion & beauty bloggers the chance to get pampered with manis & pedis right before NYFW madness began!

If you guys recall from my Kickin' It: Qream NYC Launch post, I'm in love with this new liqeur. As a 21+ diva (Drink responsibly kids!), I've found it to be extremely refreshing and the perfect cocktail mixer. Here's some more info about Qream:
QREAM WITH A QTM is a one-of-a-kind cream liqueur.  It was created by an inspired alliance between Diageo and Grammy Award-winning musician, cultural ambassador and style visionary, Pharrell Williams.  Williams was instrumental in the development of the liqueur’s creation – from taste and bottle design to marketing and advertising. Available in the U.S. in two flavors – Strawberry Crème and Peach Crème – Qream is 99% lactose free at 12.5% ABV
 While there I bumped into some of my fave blog buddies like Christine of Tineey.com and Renae Bluitt of In Her Shoes.

I also had a chance to meet some bloggers that I communicate with all the time, but I've never met like Raijean of Swa-Rai, Ehmonie of What's Haute & more!

My favortie flavor from the collection is Peach Creme - so amazing. As for outfit deets, I opted for my absolute fave tribal print dress that I scored while studying abroad a few years ago. I went to a store called Primark in London (it's like London's version of H&M) and scored this amazing dress that seems to never go out of style.
