In the age of instant gratification, delivery service apps are taking over. First there was Seamless (equally necessary for busy workdays and weekend hangovers) and then came Uber (why take a cab when you can get a town car a la Carrie Bradshaw?) It seems that anything we want is just an iPhone-click-away.
When I was invited to a fabulous cocktail cruise to celebrate Bella Magazine’s September issue, I couldn’t resist but indulge in the latest direct-to-you service app for beauty & fitness junkies: PRIV (c/o). In a nut shell, you can schedule beauty or fitness services at the drop of a hat. We’re talking make-up, massages, yoga, personal training, and more. The best part? They come straight to you! Get a blow-out in the comfort of your own home or schedule a mani/pedi in your PJs. I booked the fabulous Maryn to glam me up before the cruise, and was thrilled with the results. I’m currently girl-crushing on Kylie Jenner’s look, so we focused on matte nudes and bold lashes.
As far as fashion goes, I decided to keep it cozy with this brocade sweater dress. It can get quite cold and windy on a boat, and I was in no mood for a wardrobe malfunction! Get the look: Tildon Baroque Pattern Knit Body-Con Dress, MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Guiliana’ Peep Toe Bootie, Tory Burch Crossbody Bag (Similar here.) The total outfit can be found at Nordstrom.
The cruise was provided by Clipper City, and although it was more of a pirate ship than a yacht- it had the most spectacular views! I’m cursing myself for not bringing a better camera. Clipper City offers a variety of packages and is very moderately priced. Whether you’re a first-time visitor to Manhattan or you’ve lived her for years, you should add a summer Booze Cruise to your bucket list. I will 100% be going again!
I received complimentary treatments from Priv in exchange for a review. All opinions are honest and my own.
