Atelier Beaute Chanel Photo Diary

A beautiful experience

Anastasia and I popped by the new Chanel store last weekend and it is a stunner. I was thoroughly impressed with how thoughtful the experience feels; it’s chic, accessible, relaxed, and high end. The space is very Instagram-able, of course, and it feels playful in a refined way.  The standard for hygiene was top-notch too, with some innovative lip samples I’ve never seen from any other brand. I don’t want to ruin any surprises, but the fragrance experience was the highlight for me. I would definitely recommend stopping by at 120.5 Wooster Street! Here’s a little photo diary:

Erno Laszlo Holiday Party! And My Favorite Products

Celebrating the season and great skin!

Anastasia and I went to the Erno Laszlo Holiday Party last night and had such a fun time, so I wanted to share a few photos! They had delicious signature cocktails, a palm reader and chocolate divination (more on that below!), and this fun photo booth with gigantic balloons.

It was so fun to meet the team and other bloggers at their office. Everyone was so friendly! Anastasia and I also got our palms read, which we’d never done before. It was really interesting and not awkward or corny, even though I’m a bit of a skeptic.

We also had a chocolate reading; I’d never even heard of this, but you pick a chocolate from a huge box of options and it’s supposed to reflect your personality. It was a fun experience since it was so different – and it was pretty spot on too!

Aren’t these products so beautiful? My favorites are the Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleeping Mask and Hydra-Therapy Boost Serum. The mask has this lovely bouncy texture that feels so plush on the skin. It hydrates beautifully overnight without being sticky or getting all over my pillow. You only need a pea-sized dollop too, so a little bit goes a long way.

The serum is great because it provides lightweight hydration. It helps smooth the skin as well, but it doesn’t leave a thick layer behind. This plays well with other products too, so I always use it in the morning as sort of a hydrating primer.

The Erno Laszlo team so kindly gave us a wonderful gift bag, so I’m really excited to try some more of their products!

The decor in the office was really chic too – just like Erno Laszlo packaging! Everything is black and white with some pink accents, like gorgeous velvet chairs. I loved this gallery wall with all kinds of inspirational product shots.

 

I was taking lots of little videos and boomerangs for my Instagram and forgot to take more still shots… So here are a couple peeks into the holidays displays and a lovely candy bar they had set up. The cozy fireplace and cute lights added to the festive theme, and I’m definitely feeling the holiday spirit now!

I can’t thank the team enough for inviting us! We had such a lovely time!
