Have you visited Block 37? The urban shopping center in the heart of the loop on State Street is home to five beauty retailers! Recently WCBC partnered with Block 37 and five of our beauty bloggers to host #Block37Beauty, an evening filled with shopping, sweet treats from Magnolia Bakery, and giveaways.

Here is a peek at the event via the attendee’s instagram posts:

As always, our members were wonderfully dressed and accessorized. Ashlei from Kinks Are The New Pink even wore one of her beauty picks- Flash Tattoos from Sephora. We loved the way she mixed her real bling with her tattooed bling.

After some mingling and snacking, our members went off to explore Block 37’s five beauty retailers. Sabon created a beautiful display in the center of their shop that highlighted the products selected by our members.

Some bloggers used the event as an opportunity to pick up gifts for Mother’s Day. Katie picked up this Shea Butter Lime Hand Creme from L’Occitane, which was one of Stephanie’s picks.

And we learned that when you host a blogging event at a shopping center, lots of shopping happens.
