Held on the terrace of the Andaz Hotel in New York, I along with fellow Beauty Brand Ambassador of Wet n Wild, Wing Law of Diva Queen Makeup hosted the 2013 “Kickin It Old School” Wet n Wild Slumber party. With amazing views on an even more amazing night our invited guests were able to experience an incredible night in a way that only Wet n Wild could provide.

 

Since the theme of the event was “Kickin It Old School” that is just what we did. The air vibrated with classics from the 80’s and 90’s, a bar not only providing bubbly but specialty cocktails with fruit loop flavored vodka (I kid you not) retro candy, ice-cream, root beer floats and the most delicious cake you will ever find on a stick by New York Cake Pops ,plus a runway walk off where guests entered to win a Wet n Wild specialty gift box. Guests were also treated to free “Celebrity Style Touch-ups” and Tues and Wed crop tops but if that wasn’t enough, a plethora of Wet-n-Wild stations were anchored throughout the space, providing classic favorites and the newest collections from Wet-n-Wild, all at the disposal of our guests, yes, that meant guests were handed a large empty gift bag, taking home as much as their bag could hold, choosing whichever products they fancied. Let’s just say the cups runneth over.

 

As the newest Beauty Brand Ambassador I was excited to share this amazing event with my friends and now with all of you. Wet-n Wild has been a long time favorite brand of mine, and I have been preaching to the choir about their amazing line of lipsticks for about 10 years. With 30 years in the industry, what many people may be unaware of that Wet n Wild is, and has always been a PETA-certified, cruelty-free brand, with much of the brand boasting vegan products and natural ingredients, proving beauty can be conscious and affordable without sacrificing quality.
