What’s better than good food and gal pals? Answer: Good food, gal pals, AND great skincare. Just a few weeks ago we had the opportunity to dine with our ladies while also showcasing one of our favorite brands: Erborian. The skincare brand was started by two awe-inspiring women that elegantly collaborated both Korean and Parisian influences. Founded in 2007, Erborian truly outpaced the western K-Beauty trend while also honoring generations of timeless Korean beauty routines. At Girl Gang HQ we’ve been using these products non-stop. Here’s an update about our night and how our skincare lives have changed since then.
THE PRODUCTS – Here are a few of our favs:
The CC Cream: #ccthedifference
Any girl that’s had a Sephora obsession in the past 10 years knows that a good CC cream can change your makeup world–so look no further. With options for every skin tone, this CC cream kills the game without clogging your pores like a classic foundation would. If your cheeks get real rosy, there’s a red-correct option for you, too.
The Glow Crème: #thatglowuptho
Take your primer to the next level. We use this crème under any makeup or just by itself if we’re headed to the gym/errands for that extra shine without the effort. This crème will surely illuminate your natural tone and highlight bone structure in a subtle and classy way.
THE MEAL: Wine & dine, baby.
The night started with a stunning dinner hosted at the Bella Cucina Pop-Up in Buckhead. This store is a space of wonders curated by fabulous chef and artist Alisa Barry, who cooked all 30 of us a mouth-watering 3 course Italian-inspired meal in heels (talk about girl goals). The night took off with appetizers of brie, pimento, figs, honey, radishes, and more. As if we didn’t fill up completely on appetizers, Alisa then brought out atlantic salmon, a savory summer succotash, and curried cauliflower. To top it all off – a freshly baked apple tart (still dreaming about it). Any girl knows that a meal is made a feast with a good paired wine. With some Le Grand Courtage wine on the side, we knew we were set.
THE TABLESCAPE: Because decor matters, a lot.
From the moment we walked into Bella Cucina, we knew it would make for the perfect dinner backdrop. Simply adding a touch of florals and some chic tableware would make for one dreamy night. Between the florals by Blooming Hites, the menus designed by Anna Dooley Visuals and the name cards crafted by Hello Media Co, we had ourselves the most stunning scape.
THE GIRLS: Last but definitely not least, the gang.
We had a truly awesome turnout of bloggers and Girl Gang members alike. Conversations were had, appetizers were shared, and lasting friendships were assuredly sparked. Nothing brings ladies together like a little (or a lot of) food, wine, and love for a good brand. Many thanks to the girls of ATL that made this night magical and Viva Lux Photography for capturing us in our moment. #cheers!
