I was asked to make cupcakes for an event earlier this month for Sasha Mak's Vintage spring trunk show hosted at the Beauty Company. I enjoy making cupcakes when I can, but it is always different when I am making them for somebody. I worry about whether they will be what someone was hoping for and if they will all arrive in one piece to be admired. I am happy to report that these were a hit not only because they were pretty, but also because of how they tasted!
I am always excited to see the vintage jewelry Sasha has on display, and this event did not disappoint! She styled guests with her pieces showing how they could be layered and take an outfit to the next level. I love how she mixed the gold collar necklace with a long chain necklace on Witty Fashionista style blogger Victoria. You can always buy some of her pieces on her website Sasha Maks Vintage. (Sasha also provides personal styling if you are interested in contacting her for her service here.)
With cupcakes, snacks, and gorgeous jewelry it seems like nothing else could make the night better, right? Wrong! There was also a braid bar, with hair stylists Alix Garcia and Katey Smith glamming all the ladies out with waterfall and french braids. Below, Alix is braiding the hair of Beauty Company owner Sherri Ziesche and my hair was braided by Katey.
I had fun hanging out with my friends, trying on some jewelry and getting my hair done at the Beauty Company. I love getting my manis and pedis at the Beauty Company since that is where I was introduced to Floss Gloss and I was excited to leave with a goodie bag that contained a few beauty samples. Among the samples were some bath salts from Sherri's own line Ziesche Modern Apothecary. I am excited to use them since they are all natural, made locally (in SF) and smell amazing.
Hope you enjoyed my short event recap and special thanks to Jennymay for taking such great photos. You can check out more of her work here. Thanks for reading and until next time,
