Hello Fashionistas! The weekend is almost over (unless you don't have to work tomorrow, Columbus Day) (Or, celebrating Thanksgiving Day in Canada) and what a weekend it's been! Hope you all have enjoyed it, I certainly have and now I'm exhausted. From the Media Preview Day, Gala and Beauty Bash, I'm in serious need of a mini vacay. However, I was able to squeeze in a movie date night and went to see family at FAMU. I even caught the game, FAMU vs. SSU. I have first hand experience on why The Marching 100 are considered the "Best Marching Band in the Nation". On to the Beauty Bash, which occurred on Friday, October 10th from 8AM -10AM. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
Let us in!
Mr. Nordstrom (one of the fourth generation Nordstroms) being interviewed
I had a wonderful time at the Beauty Bash event on Friday. There were a lot of cosmetic counters to choose from but I went to my favorite, MAC. I had my eyes done by the lovely Nina @nina4urmakeup who actually works at the Avenues Mall but she was helping out at Nordstrom for the day. There were sips and snacks, fragrance samples, prizes and goodie bags. The count down for the grand opening started a little earlier than expected due to the crowds eagerness to get in and shop. The store was filled with excited shoppers going from 1st to 2nd floor trying on items and consulting with the lovely personal stylists available. Interviews were conducted by various media channels and customers responded with enthusiasm and elation that Nordstrom was finally here in Jacksonville, FL.
