More on the party to come but we couldn’t help but gush over Time and People magazines celeb-caliber swag bags that guests walked with after last night’s swanky party at the St. Regis Hotel. Media-types like CNN’s Edie Emery, Michelle Jaconi and Jill Chappell, NBC’s Betsy Fischer, Andrea Mitchell, Luke Russert, Savannah Guthrie and Mark Whitaker took home patent leather Le Sport Sacs filled with goodies such as a Little Honey travel pillow,Tip Toes foot petals, Murad sunscreen, Clinique Happy Dr. Bronner’s pure castille soap, Tokyo-milk perfume soap, Coola face cream Clinique Men’s face scrub and shave cream, Clinique quick blush, gloss wear, lip smoothie, power mascara, kohl shaper, eye serum and moisture surge, Jock’s Soaps complexion bar, half-dozen Georgetown Cupcakes, EO hand sanitizer and cleansing wipes, Paddy Wax, Envirosax tote, Ecosystem journal, Luxe Link, Company Store Egyptian cotton towel, Joesph Abboud silk necktie, Sygg black panther water bottle and a DVD of HBO’s “By the People” documentary.
And even though the drinks and food flowed freely, the mags sent guests home with snacks like Starbucks Via, Attune probiotic bar, Vita Coco, Bloomsbury Emergency Chocolate bar, Justin’s nut butters, Green’s + chocolate energy bar, Larabar gift set, Serendipity’s frozen hot chocolate mix, Funky Chunky popcorn, Veggie straws, Snikiddy’s baked fries, Theo chocolate gift set and Boost daily health booster.
As my co-editor Betsy Rothstein said this morning, “you have to mention the Tip Toes, the ball-of-foot cushions. Such a rare assortment of items I never knew I wanted so badly.”
