Who, What and Where!

Unite All Originals Good Luck Charm Nail Salon

Teyana Taylor, dubbed “Harlem’s Princess,” is the inspiration and designer behind the instant cult classic Adidas Harlem GLC sneakers. Each GLC was celebrated this weekend with a pop-up nail salon in the SoHo neighborhood of NYC. Every complimentary nail design offered was crafted after the Spring/Summer 2013 Women’s GLC silhouettes. — Fashion Editor Ericka N. Goodman, @ericka_editor

Wet Brush Special Delivery

The NYC chill doesn’t seem to let up, so I’m growing weary awaiting spring. So I was extra pumped when I received this fun floral arrangement from Wet Brush. Thanks to their patented IntelliFlex bristles, this brush makes detangling hair a breeze on a variety of textures. —  Associate Beauty Editor and Grooming Editor Janell Hickman, @jmargaretbeauty

Dove Men+Care and the Big East Conference

To celebrate their newest ad campaign, Dove Men+Care hosted a selected group of editors to view the Big East Quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden. The adorable commercials featured Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and his boys capturing “real moments” with their family. The highlight for me? The lobster burgers in the suite. Yum! —  JH

Laundry by Shelli Segal Los Angeles Launch

The L.A. It-girl clothing line is launching their first fragrance to bottle up their sexy, contemporary feel for their loyal consumers. I can’t wait to wear this ultra feminine scent, perfect for summer. Of course, it didn’t hurt that the event was held in Laundry by Shelli Segal’s gorgeous NYC showroom either! — JH

A Night at Alvin Ailey

To wrap up my week, I treated myself to an express mani at TenOverTen with my best friend, followed by a performance by Alvin II dancers. I’m always beyond impressed with how agile yet strong the dancers are! The performance of Jessica Lang's Splendid Isolation II, “The Calling” (2010), nearly moved me to tears, plus I still can’t stop obsessing over the dancer’s cascading gown. — JH

Mathieu Mirano Accessories at Paul Wilmont’s Fall 2013 Preview

’Tis the season for Fall 2013 market appointments, which is where editor’s trek around to fashion showrooms throughout the city for an up close and personal look at the offered wears for Fall 2013. We were just completely blown away by New York designer Mathieu Mirano’s accessories. Dripped in the most luxurious of materials, his accessories are must-haves for next season. — EG
