On Saturday April 25th, Debrah Rose Beauty Essentials held the first ever pop-up for Alyson Nicole.
It was an experience to remember and a generosity to never forget.
For over a month I was preparing for this pop-up along with an event the following weekend hosted by Lovely Happenings (post to come soon!). Not to mention I had about 2 weeks in the midst of this month where I was traveling in China for my 9-5. Needless to say when I got back, my free time was non-existing.
I’m not sure what it is but every time I have an event my to-do and my to-produce list is always overwhelmingly big. There’s only so many hours in a day which makes it extremely difficult to finish everything on my lists. I was using every minute I could to make these items. On the subway to and from work I used my wire and beads to make my combs and tiaras. People were extremely interested in what I was doing but never saw the final results. It takes a lot of patience to deal with rush hour on the subway let alone standing and twisted beads on wires. Luckily, I was more than satisfied with what I had completed in time for the event. However my apartment and my always-supportive boyfriend were left in a mess of trims and findings. (Sorry!)
The night prior, I will admit, I was a reck. Thankfully my mother was able to come up for the event and helped me out immensely. For the whole night, I put her to work until she fell asleep. At that time I felt I still needed something else, so I made two pairs of peacock earrings before going to bed. I might be a little crazy… Or just extremely dedicated.
Setting up my display is probably the most nerve wracking part of any event that I do. It is a puzzle that always needs fixing. After set-up is complete its pretty much smooth sailing.
The day in whole was a good experience. I cannot complain. I met some great people and got my name out there which is the most important thing.
Aubrey purchased my beaded tiara and wore it right out of the store. It looked great on her and for that I am naming that tiara after her! (Shop it here.)
Another favorite of the day, was my pearl and rhinestone reverse necklace. This necklace is great for low cut backs and is super sexy. The front is embellished with a set of three small Swarovski pearls and rhinestone beads. The dramatic back has two beautiful long silver chains adorned with Swarovski pearls at each end. Beth is now a proud owner of this necklace. (Shop it here!)
The last favorite item was my pearl and rhinestone bracelet. Made from Swarovski pearls and Swarovski rhinestones, this beautiful bracelet is a great compliment to your wrist. (Shop it here!)
Along with those three fan favorites, there was a plethora of new products that debuted for this event.
- canvas tote bags with leather trim
- hair clips and combs
Don’t forget to check them all out! They are great gifts for someone special or yourself 😉
Now it’s time to plan the next trunk show/pop-up. Keep checking my events page for more details and new products!
