Hip & Urban Girls at Lux Spa

Last Thursday, March 10th, I attended Hip & Urban Girl's Spa Party and Networking Event  at Lux Spa in Yorkville (hashtag #hugLux). This is the second hugTO event I've been to (first one being the Cookies & Champagne Party) and already I'm pretty much hooked on hugTO parties. I can always count on Lisa (@hipurbangirl) & Wendy (@BossLadyWendy) of Hip & Urban Girl's Guide when it comes to throwing cool and fun parties; they never disappoint! Last time the theme was cookies & champagne, and this time, for $30, I get a mini-manicure ($18 value) while networking with other ambitious and talented HUGs. I'm totally in.

I arrived a tad late and this was the scene at Lux Spa already:

The logical thing to do usually, for any girl, is to either grab a drink, start mingling, or start lining up for the the mini-manicure, right? Or maybe a visit to the restroom first? Well not me...all that can wait once I saw these platters:

Complimentary platters, snacks & nibbles from The Healthy Butcher (@healthybutcher).

And last but not least, Fiji water. Much needed for all the mingling that we were doing.

Okay, now we can move on.

Ahhh what colour to choose? Too many choices!

I ended up choosing pink because  pink. Here's Jackie (@thisisjlou) and I showing off our freshly done nails.

My good friend Adrienne (@peppercornpoppy) & I (me showing off my nails, yet again V^_^V)

By the way, you all need check out Adrienne's amazing handmade cards at Peppercorn & Poppy. I get all my cards from Adrienne~

Everyone also received a Lashem eyelash serum, $30 gift card to Devlish Angelz (@DevlishAngelz) and CARGO bronzer. Honestly, hugTO has the best swag =D

It was no doubt a great night. I love my nails (I'm literally looking at them right now while typing this) and the best part really is the opportunity to meet new people and networking - I'm already going for lunch this week with a couple of girls I met that night :)

Can't wait for next month's hugTO event! I heard through the grapevine that it's going to be food related. I'm stoked!
