Event Recap: Natural Beauty Soiree at ABC Home


1/14

Last week, ABC Home welcomed hundreds of Well+Good readers to the Holiday Beauty Soiree, an evening that kicked off the holiday season gorgeously.

Dozens of  luxe natural and organic beauty brands offered complimentary treatments, while fair-trade chocolatiers provided tastings (we loved ours with sea salt!), and everyone sipped champagne and shopped.

There was even a launch of a new yoga clothing line. Check out the photos here and join us next time!

Well+Good readers mingled in the store, sampling mini treatments of skin-care lines like Intelligent Nutrients to H.Gillerman Organics, and got a lot of their holiday shopping done early.
