AVEDA Summer Solutions Event in Boston

Yesterday I had the opportunity to hang out with some of my best blogging friends from Boston at the Aveda location at the Burlington Mall in Burlington, MA for a little Girl’s Day Out.  You know when you totally need to do something for yourself?  Well… yesterday was that day for me.  And truly there’s nothing like mixing beauty with some pampering and with some friends! It was the PERFECT afternoon!

When I arrived at Aveda, I helped make sure everything was ready and set for my blogging friends to come.  The store looked awesome, and as soon as I walked in… the smells just relaxed me. It was instantaneous.  It was cool to see the Summer Solutions products out front to greet people…

And then to see the fabulous quote from Aveda’s founder – Horst Rechelbacher – hanging on the wall as I entered, it was awesome! 🙂

Aveda truly is the pioneer on creating botanically-based products, and it was fascinating to hear the story and evolution of Aveda.  Horst just wanted to create products like the ones his mother made… and viola!  He created a phenomenon. It’s crazy, too because Aveda sells itself. I witnessed 3 ladies come into the story – one of them was buying shampoo and conditioner that she was out of, and literally convinced her friends on her own to try out the products.  All of them left with bags filled.  It was incredible to witness.  And I was excited for my own friends to arrive!

And that they did… !!

The staff at Aveda set-up a fabulous afternoon for us and it was PERFECT!

Relaxing tea was available when we all entered…

And then there were stations set-up…

One station was for hand massages and make-up touch-ups!  And let me tell you, this station was constantly filled, everyone was excited to get this done!

I couldn’t wait to get in the seat!

I even purchased the Aveda Bronze Blaze lip glaze she put on me, I loved the color and it tasted minty (which was good!).

And the other station was a hair station.  We all got hair consultations and got to hear what they best kind of Aveda hair products we should and could be using.  And they let us all leave with a sampling of what we were recommended.  Beyond that, we got to see the Summer Solutions products!  It was great to hear the staff walk everyone through the products and let everyone know why the collection is so popular and necessary for the summer.

It was just a fabulous afternoon!  My mother joined us all, too – and loved her pampering stations!

It was also great to catch up and relax with some of my blogging friends!

We all don’t get the chance to see each other enough, so it was wonderful to have the opportunity!

Thank you so Aveda for making the afternoon so relaxing, informative and wonderful!

Disclosure: I worked as a Aveda Mom Ambassador this month.






I’ve been working with Aveda in talking about their Summer Solutions collection and products over the last couple of weeks, and I am sincerely and totally blown away by the sheer awesomeness of the products!
