On Wednesday, I had the wonderful experience of attending the Block37 Beauty even in Chicago, hosted by some of the best beauty bloggers in the city! For those of you that don't know, Block37 is a building located in downtown Chicago (State Street) full of some of my absolute favorite places to shop, including Anthropologie, Akira, and Zara! Block37 also has several amazing stores dedicated to beauty products, and with the help of 5 Chicago beauty bloggers (A Cheeky Fox // The Naked Canvas // Short is the New Black // Defining Delphine // Kinks are the New Pink) myself and other ladies were able to explore everything beauty-related that Block37 has to offer!
Needless to say... they had me at cupcakes....
My first stop on my trip around Block37 was to Ladies and Gentleman Spa, where I enjoyed a fabulous hand massage with some stress relief lotion from Aveda. As a business owner, I'm constantly under stress, and this stuff smelled and felt amazing! I plan on going back to buy some soon (girl on a budget!) Ladies and Gentleman also has a full service spa (massages, mani-pedis, the works!) I had no idea they offered so many things. I will definitely be stopping by for one of their 15 min stress relief massages as much as I can.
While we went to several stores during the event, my absolute favorite was Sabon. Between all of the amazing smells, adorable "macaron like" packaging, and organic/cruelty-free products; I was hooked!
When you enter the store, they have a giant stone sink in the back where they let you try products and show you how they feel and smell. All of their products are handmade in Israel from Dead Sea salt.
I ended up buying the Face Polisher, which smells incredible! I can't wait to see how it helps my skin tone even out.
But my absolute favorite part of the evening? Getting to see all of my fabulous blogger babes...like the ever stylish Brittany of TheFBombs!
If you're in the Chicagoland area, I highly recommend stopping by Block37 to see all of the wonderful shops they have to offer! Plus...they have Magnolia Bakery...yum!
