Rock N Roll launch party for Gwen Stefani’s collaboration with Urban Decay. Music was provided by no other than the talented DJ Vashtie and The Lucky Chops (who were also on MTV’s Girl Code Live) in between Vashtie’s set, the Lucky Chops performed Gwen’s greatest hits from her No Doubtdays of ‘Don’t Speak’, ‘Ex-Girlfriend‘ and solo hits such as ‘Hollaback Girl’.
Guests enjoyed their time dancing and mingling with the sexy crowd of talented bloggers and makeup artists. I am obsessed with Gwen Stefani! Growing up, I looked up to her for makeup trends because her look was constantly changing and evolving.
From her No Doubt rocker-skater-sexy-chic make up to Asian inspired looks and rocking bold bright color lips and shades at a time when no one dared touch! She is a trendsetter who is always pushing the boundaries of expression and what we considered beautiful and this partnership with Urban Decay was meant to be.
As the launch party kicked off, Urban Decay’s, Chief Creative Officer Wende Zominr spoke about the excitement of the collaboration with Gwen Stefani.
Unfortunately Gwen couldn’t make the launch party but with champagne and hors d’oeuvre’s flowing, a fancy cute photo-booth, a t-shirt screen printing machine to make your own free t-shirt, it was a success!
All the beautiful makeup bloggers were there checking out the makeup and at the end of the night everyone got their own goodie bag of UD x Gwen Stefani.

If you’re unfamiliar with Create + Cultivate, let me break it down for you: it’s a conference + online platform for girl bosses in the digital space. Everyone from bloggers, to photographers, to designers, to small business owners were in attendance and even some wedding and event industry folks attended….ahem Marcy Blum!
Last year Celadon Celery came on board as the Creative Director for Create Cultivate. We are helping to bring the unique vision of the conference alive in each of the markets the conference pops up in. For Dallas we knew we wanted to it to be very different from Chicago so we went the boho, flower child route with lots of added flower and fabric elements. The space was perfect for hanging elements such as hanging chairs, gold diamonds, potted plants, and signs. We loved playing with the visuals and getting to work with vendors like Shabby Chic was like a dream! Working with them to create the overall finished look of our boho inspired conference really tied it perfectly together. They understood how important it is that each of the moments we were creating enhanced the overall guest experience. Everything we curated needed to be photo ready. We spend a lot of time creating and curating that “photo” moment for our guests. Making sure that the conference is still generating content for our guests.

Lori Levine and Jan van Arsdale didn’t have to go far to get to their wedding—just five blocks from their Gramercy Park home in New York City. They chose farm-to-table restaurant ABC Kitchen, not only for its Michelen-start rated chef, but also because they consider it their home away from home. “It’s our ‘Cheers,'” Lori notes, referencing the neighborhood bar of the television show with the same name. The bride (who founded celebrity marketing and events company Flying Television) and groom (a director in equity research sales) often share romantic meals at the chic spot, or take his four children there for family brunch. Not to mention it’s where Jan proposed on January 21, 2014.
While basking in the afterglow of being engaged, Lori looked around the elegant dining room and declared the two should wed in that very space. And so they did, exactly 16 months after meeting. The New Year’s Day black-tie celebration on January 1, 2015, also kept in tradition of the pair commemorating 1sts, as they always celebrate the first day of the month with a toast. It was also the first wedding ever held in the space.
The duo had issued in the new year with family and friends at a bar near their home the night before, and started a new stage of life—being husband and wife—with 127 loved ones in a white, silver, and lavender party that was tranquil, personal, and a bit magical.

As seen on Style Me Pretty this past week .I’ll ride the New Years high for as long as I can and that means soaking up every single bit of fresh, chic style that I can get my hands on – and lucky for me, we have this modern Manhattan bash by Daughter of Design to dive into. With a Bride that rocks her Romona Keveza gown (courtesy of Gabriella New York) and Lindsay Madden’s pics to pin all over our Pinterest boards, I’m feeling inspired already. Oh and McKenzie Miller Film’s clip? The icing on the cake
Mia and Jake were married on a gorgeous summer day at Studio 450 in Manhattan. Mia and Jake envisioned their wedding day to be modern yet romantic and most importantly, centered around their family and friends. They teamed up with Annie Lee of Daughter of Design and Bess Wyrick of Celadon & Celery in order to bring their vision to life. Studio 450 was the perfect blank canvas for their blush and gold color palette. Mia’s bridesmaids selected their own dresses and their whole look was tied together by lush bouquets provided by Celadon & Celery. Mia looked radiant in her blush Ramona Keveza wedding dress from Gabriella Bridal while Jake looked very “downtown black tie” in his Michael Andrews Bespoke tuxedo.
Bess Wyrick created an organic yet modern chuppah for the couple’s rooftop Modern Orthodox ceremony. The location for the ceremony was both intimate and incredibly romantic. The reception decor complemented Studio 450’s clean space and since it’s always the details that make any event stand out, Annie Lee of Daughter of Design worked her magic with a gold on clear on pink tablescape. Another design element that really caught everyone’s attention was the wisteria and vine ceiling installation created by Bess Wyrick and her team for the dance floor. Mia and Jake’s cake was designed by Cake Alchemy and all of their guests danced the night away courtesy of the Michael Hart Band.
