LUNA Bar Shindig Recap!


Hello gals! I am super excited about today’s post because for one, I had a ton of fun at this event and two, I am always happy to spread the word about amazing brands that care about their customers (…and products, of course! …And give me fuel to keep going these days – literally I have been LIVING off LUNA Bars lately..ah!). Last week I partnered with LUNA Bar to host a fab event at Embellish Nail Salon…and to say the least, it was SO much fun! (…Can you tell? And hey, that big ‘ol cheesy smile is not from the vino I drank that night either, ha!). Above you’ll see me (being a goof, what’s new? 😉 ) with Jeanine, the wonderful woman from the LUNA team who put this event together (…and did an incredible job, by the way!).

If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember that I had a contest running for 15 followers and their guests to attend this shindig, complete with all the LUNA Bars you can eat (…or fit in your tote bag, ha!), delicious wine & cheese and finally, manicures and mingling. Well, the invite list went out and finally this highly anticipated event took place last week!

When LUNA reached out about partnering to host the event and share the 3 new LUNA Bar flavors with my followers, I jumped at the opportunity. LUNA Bar is one of those down-to-earth, kind and empowering brands that I am honored to collaborate with – hence, the words of encouragement we’re holding in the photos above and below! Jeanine had these printed and set them throughout the salon, which I absolutely LOVE because as someone who has that little voice of self-doubt in my head from time to time, it was a reassuring reminder to stay ‘authentic’ or ‘fearless’ throughout the duration of the event. (…And I had to do a little public speaking that night, so turning every which way and having these motivational words stare me in the face was awesome, ha!). Let’s just say having these positive words visible was highly representative of the LUNA Bar brand and I adore their empowering mission so much!

Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chunk, Dark Chocolate Hazelnut and Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond (my personal favorite, SO delicious…okay but seriously, is your mouth watering yet? 😉 ). Under 200 calories, gluten free & just 5g of sugar. See? Easy to understand why I hoard these things in my purse or tote bag at all times, ha!livvyland-blog-luna-bar-clif-event-embellish-nail-salon-anderson-austin-texas-fashion-blog-nail-salon-best-boutique-5livvyland-blog-luna-bar-clif-event-embellish-nail-salon-anderson-austin-texas-fashion-blog-nail-salon-best-boutique-2livvyland-blog-luna-bar-clif-event-embellish-nail-salon-anderson-austin-texas-fashion-blog-nail-salon-best-boutique-7^^Jeanine and I making making a short and sweet speech about the nail color options (we matched polish colors to the pretty packaging) and the new ingredients in the LUNA Bars. True story: I totally practiced my spiel about 100 times while sitting in traffic en route to the event, ha! Even still…my nerves were quite high. Pleased to say I managed to get through it!
