Hey y’all! Happy Friday 🙂 Anyone else ready to throw their hair in pony and sip on a cocktail this evening? Because I sure am. This week has been a little crazy, but I can’t complain about the good that has come from it. This girl needs a margarita and furry blanket ASAP.
I am super excited to share more about College Fashion Week last weekend in NYC! I mentioned a little in this post but there’s so much more share. Along with great fashion and get networking, there were a several wonderful brands that each had activation sites throughout the show. My favorite had to be Spindrift sparking water. Spindrift® is America’s first and only sparkling water made with real, squeezed fruit plus the only colors and sugars come from the fruits themselves, nothing else. Yup, that’s it. On top of being unique in many ways, I love that Spindrift’s activation site had so many of their flavors available for us such as Grapefruit, Orange Mango, Strawberry, Raspberry Lime and Blackberry. I can just be completely honest and tell y’all that I had every flavor available that night. I totally split cans with the girls I met, but I just had to try them all, especially since all flavors are not sold near me. (By the way, Sprindrift sparkling water can be purchases at your local Target, in-story only). Stephanie and I, had so much fun filming boomerangs and short video clips on Saturday with Spindrift and hanging out with all the lovely staff. Since Spindrift was the official beverage sponsor at #CollegeFashionWeek, it was great to chat about the flavors with everyone there since there was plenty of drinks to go around to the influencers during the VIP hour and until the end of the entire show.
After the show, I was able to grab my favorite flavors from Target and make a few cocktails during my trip home to New Jersey. You can pour one can, your favorite liquor and fruit slices into a shaker to mix evenly. Then, pour over ice and add a splash of soda, juice and/or flavored syrup and add fresh fruit to make the perfect cocktail.
College Fashion Week overall was such a fun experience that I hope to be able to do again next year. I loved that all the models were real, diverse and confident college girls with all different body shapes, sizes and colors. This was also a great time to network with brands, try new products from Ulta and BedHead and connect with other influences – which is always so fun. Have y’all heard of #CFWNYC or #CFWBoston ? If not, you M U S T check them out of next season. So many great reasons to go plus have a great time learning about new fashion trends/brands this season. Well, that’s all that I have for y’all today! Let me know in the comments if you have been to College Fashion and/or in you would want to go next year <3 – xo, Azanique
