BaubleBar + Essie… Leading Lady!

I’m so excited about BaubleBar’s latest collab (with Essie!) It went live this morning at 11am.  I’m also really excited that Christin and I got to be a part of the editorial shoot.  It was so, so much fun.  The team thought it would be fun to show a few team members.  When they decided to feature Team Social, I was more than just a little bit nervous.  I’m totally camera shy and majorly awkward in front of the camera… but thanks to an amazing makeup artist + photographer, the shoot turned out really well.  (And they let me wear my fave striped sequined dress.)

Besides being honored to participate, and being highly biased (I work for BB if you didn’t pick up on that) I love what the collection stands for.  It’s all about personal style which is why the campaign features real women.  For $50, you get your polish + coordinated bangle, and then you get to choose two of your own bangles to really add a personal spin and form the perfect bracelet stack.  It makes for a fantastic gift as well… everything comes packaged in the cutest little pouch!
