Mercedes Benz Fashion Week has wrapped and besides attending shows and catching all of the street style, the next best thing would be all of the lounges. The Fashion Week lounges are literally lifesavers. They are located throughout the city and there are tons of perks like phone charging stations, computer stations to blog, food, drinks, hair and makeup touch ups, express manicures, massages, and you can even get a change of clothes. Sounds awesome right? It is! With running from show to show you just need time to breathe and regroup for the rest of your day.

So during fashion week, I had the opportunity to attend the Allure Magazine’s Press Lounge which was held at the Empire Hotel and it was truly an amazing experience. Not only did I get a chance to get a great manicure from Maybelline, I was also able to pick up a few fragrance samples from the designer fragrance bar, and get a great hand treatment from Bioxidea and more.

I learned about brands such as Da-Sein, Renzo + Kai, Stop Staring, and Crystal Icing for all of your bedazzled cell phone accessories. Renzo + Kai designs are amazing. They had the cutest cropped sequin jacket and this amazing beaded dress. Definitely a group of designers to watch. There were also makeup artists from Maybelline, aestheticians from Skin Medica for express facials, and hairstylists from Ricardo Rojas Salon on hand for those quick beauty touch ups.

Celebs like June Ambrose and Natasha Bedingfield also stopped by to check out the lounge as well. One of the highlights at the lounge besides the awesome services and products was the drink sponsor Teqava. Teqava is the first sparkling tequila. Yes there is now a sparkling tequila and it is DELICIOUS. The original flavor is so refreshing.

About TeQava (Source)

“This vibrant Tequila Cocktail has 100% Blue Weber Agave Triple Distilled Tequila and is new to the US Markets from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. This is the First Premium Tequila Cocktail – Carbonated, Ready Mixed and Naturally Flavored. There is nothing artificial.

Silver Premium Tequilas are being mixed with fresh juices and aromatic herbs to create cocktails. The difference in flavor is immediately apparent. 100% Blue Agave Tequila is used in top shelf Plata or Silver version Tequila and is more complex and more vegetal in component than other grain spirits. After fermentation and distillation, it goes straight into the bottle.

TeQava is a mix of premium triple distilled Tequila and fruit infusion. The color is clear and the taste is an explosion of rich, roasted Agave, followed by a pleasing burst of juicy nectar in the finish.”

TeQava is the perfect drink for a girl’s night out. If you do not like hard liquor, this is perfect for you. The sweet sparkling flavor is not over powering, so if you are not a fan of “hard liquor” this is a must have.
