Our Fall Lovely Happenings lifestyle workshop event took place on Saturday, October 10th! Our second event turned out to be filled with just as much inspiration and creativity as our first. Take a look at our recap on the entire event in case you missed any of our participants, and be sure to follow them to stay up to date on their latest lifestyle lessons.

Guests got into the Fall spirit with us at Home Studios in Union Square in NYC. It was simply the perfect girls day filled with every Saturday necessity. Our guests enjoyed all of our lifestyle workshops while sipping mimosas & bloody mary’s and taking unforgettable photos in the photobooth. The day was filled with shopping, learning, laughter, fun, inspiration, raffles, and giveaways!
