Today's post is a little more serious because I wanted to talk about this event called Love, Preview happening in Orange County, CA on November 10th. I first heard about this event from Jen at The PolishAholic. She mentioned this curated beauty and fashion charity shopping event that benefited No Kid Hungry, a charity that works towards ending childhood hunger and it sounded like a wonderful cause.
The event was started by Victoria, the owner of Serum No. 5, an indie brand of hand mixed nail polishes. I personally haven't tried any of their polishes but I know they're well-loved in the indie nail polish world. The event has many different fashion and beauty brands that you can purchase from (check out the list in the flyer!). All the profits from the ticket sales, vendor fees, sponsorships and donations will go towards No Kid Hungry.
The event will take place in Orange County, specifically the Shark Club in Costa Mesa.
You can purchase tickets for $10.59 online (until the 9th) or $15 at the door. This is a 21 and over event however. Tickets include admission, a raffle ticket, and gifts from Seven til Midnight, Planet Beauty and NAIL IT! Magazine (while supplies last). All the money collected from ticket sales (after the administrative costs) will go towards No Kid Hungry.
If you're not able to attend the event, you can donate to their Indiegogo campaign for another week! There are many donation tiers and you can donate any amount you'd like.
I know not everyone will be able to go or donate so feel free to share information about this event if you'd like to!
FYI: I'm not being paid to post about the event. I'm actually going to be attending the event and asked to be a media partner to promote the event but I do not receive any compensation (it'd be terrible if I did anyway yeah? I mean all the money should go towards the charity)
