last night i went to an event at mario’s called girlfriend night, put on by seattle picks, a cool lil email magazine that publishes once a week with goings-on (i could do without the preamble at the beginning that has nothing to do with the content), usually shopping related. anyways, there was sofia sparkling white wine, cupcake royale mini cupcakes, an area where bocz salon was setup doing hairstyling and i think something they called biotoning? it was electrically stimulating facial muscles. i’m not sure what the end result was suppoed to be…must be to look younger if it’s on the face. anyways, i passed on the bocz stuff, and the sparkling wine oddly enough. you’d think any free alcohol is good alcohol with me. don’t get me wrong, i’m sure it’s a fine wine, but i like my drinks sweet and i’ve bought a 5 or 6 pack of cans (it’s their gimmick, pink cans for the sparkling wine named after sofia coppola…yes, her family does actually own the vineyard) before and had a hard time finishing it because it was so dry. drinking sparkling water out of a champagne flute just is not the same experience.
i’d say the highlight of the evening though was when one of my friends won a bottle of sofia, courtesy of 6th avenue wine seller, and then i won a pair of hudson jeans, courtesy of mario’s! yay, go us! i ended up just getting a basic bootcut (fade was too dramatic on the skinny jeans and the dark grey bootcuts didn’t come in my size) in a dark blue, which i think i already have something similar to, but free jeans=good jeans! even though we got there too late to secure a swag bag, i’d say the night was definitely a success.
