Summer Beauty

This weekend, I went to NYC to attend events hosted by theCURVYcon and Full Figured Fashion Week (recaps and outfit posts later on this week). Our hotel stay was at the Hilton Midtown and, man, did they make us feel right at home. Before Saturday events, we were treated to a morning beauty session thanks to Priv.

The cool thing about Priv is that the beauty and wellness service comes to you. In the comfort of your own space, wherever that may be, you can get in a workout with a trainer, a 30 minute massage, a quick haircut, and so much more. Using the mobile app, you just enter your address, select the service you would like (the type of service + price will be listed), browse the Pros list to choose the person of your liking, and finalize the appointment with a payment. Such an easy process.

For my beauty session, I went with a gelicure and brow threading. The threading was very much needed because I've been growing out my brows for a couple of months now. It was way overdue. By the end of both sessions, I felt completely ready for my day. 

And I didn't even have to leave my hotel room.

Meanwhile, today's the first official day of Summer. Oh joy. To try to get myself excited for the hotness, I've decided to wear a bright nail color throughout this season. It brings me joy to look down at my nails and see it all bright and colorful. Y'know, the little things.
