L'elite Magazine & Travertine Spa Media Lounge Retreat At Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

This season at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week I had the privilege of being invited to relax and be pampered at the L'elite Magazine and Travertine Spa Fashion Week Media Retreat in the Empire Hotel. The suite was filled with many exciting treats and goodies and was aimed for tired Fashion Week media to relax and taste a bit of luxury. The Egyptian-themed Media Lounge offered chocolate treats, massages, hair and makeup as well as luxurious products. Once I arrived at the lounge I was first escorted to see the new Taylor Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Click here to see my favorite picks.  

Next, I was introduced to JJ's Rockin Cupcakes, which were even yummier than they looked! I quickly sampled the red velvet cupcake with frosting which I highly recommend! VOSS water was provided as a refreshment. I found out that L’elite Magazine started a campaign with Voss Foundation’s clean water initiative to raise awareness of the lack of access to clean water in sub-Saharan Africa and facilitate improved access for communities in the region. 10% of the proceeds from the louge event were donated to the Voss Foundation and L’elite Magazine will continue its clean water campaign by spearheading what the magazine has dubbed the “L’elitist Movement” to raise funds for the project. As part of the L’elitist Movement, L’elite Magazine will donate 100% of the subscriber fees for the entire year to the foundation.
After schmoozing with my friend and editor of L’elite Magazine Mishell Brookins I was invited to have my hair done by Pimps & Pinups. They created a fishtail braid for me which looked absolutely incredible and was super fun to wear! As a gift I was given 3 Kevin Murphy hair product samples and a 20% coupon for Pimps & Pinups to use at their Lower East location at 101 Stanton Street which I definitely plan on using!
Next I was introduced to Terry Carter the CEO of Travertine Spa Collection. He showed me some of the fabulous Travertine products and a preview of the Spring/Summer 2012 Travertine Spa Resort Apparel line. I was then offered either a neck or hand massage with the Travertine cream by their fabulous masseuse. I opted for the hand massage and let me tell you it was incredible! The masseuse used the ultra luxe Travertine Shea Hand and Nail Cream on my hands. It smelled amazing and the ultra rich cream made my hands as soft as cashmere. I was lucky to be given a sample of it to take home and have been obsessed with it ever since!

 I also met Laura Rike CEO of Endeavor Media Solutions. Here we are posing outside the L'elite Magazine and Travertine Spa lounge on the red carpet.
