Event Recap: CapFABB’s 3rd Anniversary Bash with Capwell+Co!

In only three short years, the Capital Area Fashion and Beauty Bloggers (CapFABB) has become the largest blogger network in the DC area! To celebrate this momentous occasion, CapFABB partnered with jewelry company Capwell+Co for an amazing anniversary blogger bash at Dirty Martini Lounge in Dupont.

We dined on tasty small bites, wine, and cocktails, but the real winner of the evening was being treated to some luxe arm charm courtesy of Capwell+Co. CapFABBers absolutely flipped for the bracelet bar where guests were welcomed to choose from a wide array of Capwell’s amazing baubles.

Take a look at the night’s highlights!

Bb.U Model Project | Free Blowouts!

Hi there, CapFABBers! Just wanted to pop over on this sunny Saturday morning to share a fun opportunity in the area that might just appeal to some of our beauty- and hair-obsessed members…


For those of you who call Bethesda home — or want to spend a leisurely morning or afternoon up in MD — Bumble and bumble is holding a styling class at The Shop Salon in Bethesda as part of their Bumble and bumble. UNIVERSITY Model Project.

The styling academy is seeking female hair models to participate on Saturday, March 9, and Sunday, March 10, and receive, wait for it, a FREE professional blow dry (and styling product).

Sound fun? All you have to do is send a current photo (one that shows your current hair length and natural texture, not curled or straightened) and you cell phone number to model@bumbleandbumble.com. And be sure to tweet @capFABB if you end up attending, because Bumble and bumble is hoping to build a database of bloggers and beauty enthusiasts around the DMV and this is such a fun way to start!
