Beauty & Money 2018 Recap
Last month, Olive + M was chosen as a Beauty Spotlight Finalist alongside 12 other beauty brands to present at Beauty & Money in New York City. Beauty & Money is an event where up-and-coming beauty brands are given the opportunity to meet with industry leaders and investors in the booming beauty and wellness space. During this time, brands are given the opportunity to discover current trends, innovations, as well as network and connect with the beauty industry’s top brands and investors, including Kate Somerville, L Catterton, ULTA Beauty, Johnson & Johnson, Shiseido, L’Oreal. As a growing indie beauty brand, we were incredibly grateful to be given the opportunity to present at Beauty & Money. 2019 is going to be a big year for Olive + M and we can’t wait to see what the future holds with the relationships we have created along the way.
Once Beauty & Money was over, we celebrated the best way we knew how. COLOR FACTORY! Our Marketing Director, Ashlyn, suggested a team field trip here and let’s just say we had a BLAST! Color Factory is a 20,000 sqft. collaborative and interactive exhibit featuring a variety of hues based on a color palette created from NYC’s SoHo Hudson Square neighborhood. It was a great opportunity to have some fun with the team and a great reminder to take a step back, and connect not only with the beautiful moments created through art, but with the beauty that surrounds us in our own day to day lives.
After our afternoon of fun at Color Factory, we went to one of founder Mariska’s favorite NYC restaurants, Motel Morris. The food, service and ambiance are always excellent visit after visit, and we just keep coming back! For our fellow Austinites, think McGuire Moorman vibes — it’s like Clark’s meets Jeffrey’s right in the heart of Chelsea NY. This city holds a special place in each of our hearts and we look forward to coming back in the near future!
