The Ultimate Fashion Week Retreat: TechStyle Lounge NYC

we love attending Fashion week Lounges because it gives us a chance to not only relax but to also dedicate time to getting to know some very cool brands. During a break in shows, we escaped to Bumble and bumble’s Downtown NYC salon, not for a hair appointment, but to indulge in a little relaxation time at the TechStyle Lounge. Thanks to this amazing lounge, we got the chance to renew our energy with products from Maple Water, Onli Beverages, Mamak Restaurant, Jala Greek Frozen Yogurt Bars, and several more. It was the perfect way to slow down during the hectic week.

Because of the hectic nature of New York fashion Week, there’s hardly anytime to enjoy a meal, so we were beyond ecstatic to be greeted with the delicious treats from SexyPop Popcorn, Jala Greek Frozen Yogurt Bars (delicious low calorie bars we later realized we first enjoyed at a Step Up Event with DSW in 2009), Brooklyn Dark Orange Silk Chocolate, and some scrumptious Malaysian food from Mamak Restaurant. After indulging in the above edibles, we made our way to PINCHme.

If you love free samples (which sometimes come in full sizes), then you’ll love PINCHme. Based on a first come, first serve basis, this unique sample experience is a must if you love being the first among your friends to try new products. Just sign up to start receiving samples, share your opinion after you receive your samples and enjoy. From there on, we stopped by Auster and their stunning bags, whose clutched reminded us of beautiful fans.

It should come as no surprise that Auster Bags works directly with Argentine designers and artisans to create the beautiful handmade and hand-painted bags you see above. The event offered a chance to win one but sadly we were not so lucky. It was a very short trip from Auster to Flickable, the one-of-a-kind lip gloss shaped like a lollipop.

This adorable lollipop-shaped gloss comes in a variety of colors, boasts a natural tingly sensation, glides on smoothly, and bold color pigments that lasts. Make your lips more than kissable, make them Flickable. As stated at the beginning, there was lots to sate our appetites, and the same goes for quenching our thirst.

Thanks to the previously mentioned Maple Water (a refreshing beverage made from the sap that comes straight from maple trees), Onli Beverages (premium, chef-inspired sparkling flavored water), and low calorie Skinnygirl Cocktails, we were left refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle our remaining hectic fashion week schedule. We didn’t have to actually leave the lounge to continue our fashion previews, our next visit was to Snowman New York, a luxurious collection of down outerwear for women.

We couldn’t help but fall in love with the silhouettes because they actually accentuate the female body unlike typical down jackets and coats. The styles boasts corseted details, and tapered waistlines which result in sophisticated style without the bulk. We’re in love. From Snowman, we moved on to get a much needed manicure from Diosa Nail Polish.

Created by New York native Diana Long (pictured above in Navy) with a commitment to empower and inspire young women, Diosa Nail Polish, Spanish for “Goddess”, features quality, non-toxic nail polish that encourage women to not be bland with their style. Our last stop was at Measurable Difference/Chrislie Formulations, which offered a vast array of beauty products for face and body.

From eyelash and eyebrow amping and growing products, to beauty devices, to skin firming products, we were in beauty heaven. Limp lashes don’t stand a chance with the eye products they offer, and get ready for your skin to glow, thanks to their innovative skincare products. We loved every minute of this lounge and we hope they have it again next season.
