Dine With Derek - Bella NYC Event

Bella NYC, Bloggers Last night was a dream—is what I keep telling myself today. Bella NYC Magazine hosted a dinner party for their newest style director, Derek Warburton, at Manon NYC restaurant. The party brought together the most fabulous bloggers for a night of celebration, food and tasty rice krispies desserts by Treat House.

Beautiful models walked the party styled in the latest fashions by Old Navy, HipknotiesJane Basch Jewelry and Lysse to name a few. Guests also enjoyed manicures by The V Spot Nail Spa. You could even opt for the signature Bella NYC nail design. Celebrity guests were also in attendance like Elvis Duran and The Morning Show's Carla Marie, VH1's Jackie Miranne and Marysol Castro and Julie Grauert of Pix11.

The biggest shock to me, and reason why I say last night was a dream, is because towards the end of the night Derek got on the mic and announced me as one of his top bloggers. He proceeded to tell me I’d be a getting a page spread in Bella NYC, styled by him! My heart is still racing a mile a minute and am so grateful for this tremoundous honor.

I also have to give a huge thanks to Dana Prigge, features editor of Bella NYC, for putting together an amazing event and having me there for the big night. Five more bloggers will be chosen for a feature in the magazine and I know Derek and Dana will have a difficult choice to make amongst all the amazing bloggers in attendance last night.

All guests walked away with amazing swag bags. My favorites inside were Pop Chips and Still Standing spray.
