Once again this event did not disappoint....it had lots of great people, music and new vendors. I especially liked the on-site tooth Whitening System which is convenient for those of us working folks who have no time to do something nice for ourselves. Here you could have experienced everything under one roof from tasting new and delicious drinks and then drink and food pairings to pampering yourself with teeth whitening http://whitescience.com or clean fresh breath system - eatwhatever – amazing breath freshener --- EatWhatever
after consuming samples of Lindt Chocolate which was absolutely delicious while finishing the meal with the Skinny Water to keep your figure nice and lean. You could also walk out with a brand new Chic outfit at a very reasonable price and if your feet were hurting you from walking so much you could pick up a pair of really awesome and fashionable yet comfortable flats from Funk-tional-Footwear booth where the inventors and co-owners of the brand were there to demonstrate how their footwear will better your everyday life especially in a big city like New York. Katie Shea is a co-founder of Funk-tional-footwear and Susie Levitt in the video interview below will let us in on their new secret discovery of ending women suffering of wearing high heeled stiletto's in NYC and /or other large cities. They call them the "CitySlips".

Despite their suffering, they simply were unwilling to (totally) give up on these beloved wardrobe staples. And yet, corporate internships, subway dashes, dinner dates, the NYC social scene… all of the above led to too many moments of hobbling, near tears, back to their Union Square apartments. The front door never seemed to come soon enough.
One too many encounters with shoeless socialites and barefooted babes led to their AH HA moment... CitySlips was born. These entrepreneurial sole-sisters came up with a concept and design that allowed women to carry back-up ballet flats comfortably, compactly, and conveniently. Juggling classroom term papers and corporate term sheets throughout their senior year of college, Susie and Katie enlisted the opinions of friends, the help of NYU professors, and the time of many NYC professionals and mentors. Nine months later (their baby, literally!), they now have a product that is funk-tional, fashionable and affordable! They’re confident that all of you well-heeded women on-the-go will enjoy these fabulous sole savers.
