This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Kroger and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
Last weekend I got to hang out with the Kroger team and Seattle blogger community to celebrate Kroger’s Summer Beauty at the Sole Repair Shop! As a lifelong Fred Meyers/Kroger shopper, I was so excited to attend the event.
Before I jump into the recap, who is Kroger?
Founded in 1883, Kroger is one of the largest supermarket chains in the United States. If you live in the Northwest, your family may have shopped at Fred Meyers or QFC. If you live in Southern California, you may have shopped at Food 4 Less or Ralphs. All of these grocery stores belong to the Kroger the family.
I grew up shopping at Fred Meyers. Since we had a Fred Meyer’s only 5 min from our house, we made multiple weekly stops. My family even gave Fred Meyer’s a nickname… we call Fred Meyer’s “Freddies”. Even I moved to Seattle for college I continued to shop at Fred Meyers. And when I moved down to California to work for PepsiCo, I shopped at Ralphs.
Kroger Beauty Event Recap: #KrogerBeauty
The Kroger Beauty team treated us to manicures/hand massages, hairdos, and make up touch ups. I literally submitted my final paper the day beforehand so I was super excited for these beauty treatments! I personally got my hair styled by Jennifer from Chromatique salon. She put two small braids in my hair and curled the pieces that framed my face. After my hairstyle, I went over to Kori from Chromatique salon to get my makeup touched up. I absolutely loved the L’Oreal Paris Shimmerista highlighter she put on my face!
After my make over, I went downstairs to hang out with the rest of the girls and also grab something to eat. Kroger treated us to mimosas, eggs benedict, fruit, yogurt, and so much more! We even had these adorable cookies after we ate!
Throughout the rest of the day I got to catch up with all the Seattle bloggers. I’ve barely done any blogger events these past 6 months since I’ve taken on grad school full time in the evenings. So it was fun to catch up to see what everyone’s summer plans were! We also took tons of photos. The Kroger Beauty team set up the space beautifully. The flower arrangements, the white couch, and all cookies were all Instagram-worthy!
My favorite items for Kroger Beauty:
Aside from all the amazing Kroger brands and products we got to try and use throughout the day, I wanted to share a few of my favorite items I use from Kroger: make up wipes and L’Oreal Paris lipsticks.
No matter what stage I am in my life – teenager, college student, a career woman, I still find myself running to the beauty section to pick up make up wipes. I also love browsing through the beauty aisles and checking out the different lipsticks through the L’Oreal Paris sections. I recently picked up these three bright colors for summer and I’m obsessed!
L’Oreal Lipstick colors featured in the photo:
- 707 – Matte-jestic
- 402 – Devils Matte-vocate Red
- 711 – At the Drop of a Matte
