Tuesday night, I headed down to SoHo to Delta’s pop up lounge for Single Edition Media‘s party at the airline’s new Terminal Four at JFK.
The swanky soiree celebrated seasonal fashion and beauty trends, with demos from some great brands. I sampled BluePrintCleanse‘s green juice and cashew milk, enjoyed an Elizabeth Arden, makeover and learned about GLO, an affordable, fast teeth whitening device I wish I’d known about before going the pricier gel tray route.
Nanette Lepore reps shared first date style tips (less is always more when it comes to revealing attire, ladies) while Foot Petals founder Tina Aldatz offered red carpet secrets (FP’s Killer Cushions under tip toes).
One of the evening’s highlights – alongside some very easy on the eyes Delta pilots — was hearing inspiring stories about happily ever after. GLO’s co-founders beamed as they mentioned their marriage of 30 years and counting. Foot Petals’ Tina was all aglow about being engaged at 44. Newly-engaged fellow blogger Jess Downey told me how her future hubby found her on OkCupid while searching for a fellow beer aficionado.
I couldn’t help thinking about the different prism through which I’m reacting to these examples of meeting your match. As I recently mentioned, Amy Spencer’s fabulous book about dating optimism has had a lot to do with that. Amy writes that, instead of viewing other couples from the “why them and not me?” perspective, see them as examples of what is possible.
Amazing how different life and love can look when you change your perspective.
