AFTER THE HOLIDAY PARTY!
When people think about the holidays, the first things to come to mind are usually presents under the Christmas tree, tacky wool sweaters, and eggnog by the fire. However, Interview Her has fabulously redefined the holiday spirit with our Ultimate Holiday Girls Night Out. This one of a kind celebration was held on December 8th at the lavish mansion, Villa 221, in Miami Beach. Joined by South Florida’s most marvelous women, guests were treated to amazing discounts on dazzling jewels, delicious complimentary holiday cocktails from 7-8 p.m., and free mini-makeovers, among many other treats.
Once entering Villa 221’s main room downstairs, partygoers were welcomed with a program, which listed the drink specials and the specifics of what was going on in each room at what times. Then off the ladies went to Patty Nash Photography’s step and repeat! VIP guests were treated to white and gold InterviewHer.com goodie bags that were filled with Pop Chips, Zico Water, candles by Soy Delicious, jewelry by Fashionista on Wheels, Pop Beauty ribbon lip gloss, scarves courtesy of Interviewher.com, Bronze wishbones and bracelets by Mar Y Soul Jewelry, water bottles by Dance Tech Studios, Equinox Fitness Club 3 day passes, Salon Vaso’swrapped present that included discounts and special offers, Miss Fanatic kiss magnets, $10.00 off of Sergio Zelcer shoes at the event, among other gifts.
ShutterBox’s photo booth greeted each entering guest, where memories were captured on a strip of photos for the ladies and their gal pals to cherish in an enjoyable and unique way. In the luxuriously decorated mansion’s main room downstairs, vendors such as Taudrey, House of Scarves, Soy Delicious Candles, Fox House, Bhoom Shanti, Fashionista on Wheels, and Sergio Zelcer Shoes were all 40-85% off! Don Elio’s Cigars graced the party’s thrilling atmosphere, presenting the perfect gift for the special man in your life at a ridiculously discounted price! Only InterviewHer’s guests were lucky enough to score these amazing deals for the holidays, something you can’t find anywhere else.
After scoring funky jewelry, exquisite shoes, and silk scarves, the party downstairs was just beginning. Once you walked up the Italian styled staircase, upstairs was where the electrifying party atmosphere was intensified. Mouthwatering free cupcakes and $1.00 cake pops by Simply Sweets were devoured in the blink of an eye because of its delectable flavors. Makeup by Marz was a huge hit, in which they gave complimentary mini-makeovers to all of the party’s guests. Equinox gifted complimentary massages and eyebrow shaping as well as free trial passes to any of their gyms. Salon Vaso really took the cake with their full-blown salon that was set up in the back room on the second floor. Giving complimentary blowouts and styling, $10.00 feather extensions, $15.00 lash extensions, $5.00 manicures, its no question why they won the 2011 Ultimate Holiday Girls Night Out Fan Favorite Award. Mar y Sol, a fabulous handmade jewelry company who won the last Fan Favorite Award, was also a huge hit.
Rock Star Pastries handed out free samples of mouthwatering delicacies, while Mina Miami Beach displayed the latest trends in handbags and clothing. Recycle My Bag was another favorite, where they took recyclable material, such as old t-shirts, and transformed them into a stylish tote bag with handmade patchwork. MERLO’s display of trendy silk dresses, bathing suits, and dresses by local designers gave this event a very Miami feel. Robbie Lip Gloss had an array of colors, while Le Greek Boutique had their own pop-up dressing room for women to try on clothing. LaMoUr Jewelry, Lorie Lester, Earth Girlz, Candace Skye and Dance Tech Studios were also huge hits throughout the night! Patty Nash Photography did an amazing job of capturing the night’s most precious moments.
This event couldn’t have been possible without the support of all of its attendees, in which fundraising for FINCA.org was possible. FINCA is an anti-poverty organization whose work is aimed at creating jobs, raising incomes, and reducing poverty worldwide. A portion of the proceeds went directly to this organization in hopes of creating better lives for those around the world, something that InterviewHer is an extremely strong supporter of.
