The official #GlamBeauty100 results went live this week, but before I share them with you, I just have to recap the fabulousness that went down on my trip to LA with my #GlamFam.

My epic beauty adventure kicked off with my arrival at the Petit Ermitage, a unique boutique hotel in my favorite part of Cali, West Hollywood.

We were welcomed with an amazing dinner at The Church Key where they whipped up alcoholic popsicles right at our table. (Throughout the trip we also dined at other killer restaurants including PettyCash. Get the “Drunk in Love” – trust me.)

The next day we woke up bright and early to get dolled up at Salon Benjamin for the big event. We had lunch on the (seriously fairytale style) roof and then headed over to the (amazingly adorable) beauty boutique Blushington for the official #GlamBeauty100 testing festivities!

We donned lab coats and dove into thousands of products to vote which ones are the best of 2014! I was like a kid in a candy store.

Martinis, Mascara, and Manhattan!

805cb83858667b04dd52747548cbbb64 I’m thrilled to announce that I’m taking Martinis and Mascara to New York City!

If you follow me on social, you probably got the memo that I packed my bags and left sunny South Florida on Monday. I have been on the go ever since and I now have a clear understanding of why they call it the city that never sleeps!

Naturally, I picked Fashion Week to kick off my new adventure. I have been attending all sorts of events and visiting my fav beauty industry peeps to produce some fun stuff for you all to read in the next few days!


Keep your eye out for beauty tips from Fashion Week, my favorite products from the Glam Fashion Week Insiders dinner, and much more!

I’m so excited to start this new chapter of my life and I just wanted to thank you all for sharing it with me. I would not be able to do this without the endless support of my beautiful friends and readers. Cheers to Martinis, Mascara, and Manhattan! 😉
