At the the Amazon X Refinery 29 pop up I was able to get a free dress from Jamie Chung that retails for $126+! For $126 you can easily book a round trip flight from San Diego, California to San Francisco, California.

Season’s Greetings! Did everyone enjoy a nice Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa? I have been enjoying the sunshine in Los Angeles, and have yet to experience a white Christmas! Right before I left New York, I did manage to get a free dress from the Amazon X Refinery 29 pop up as an early holiday gift. This dress costs $126+ and I got it for free from Jamie Chung’s styling session. Jamie was looking for people to model clothing items to the audience, and in exchange you were able to keep the item.

For this week’s edition of the free NYC event list expect a New Year’s Resolution Group Run, hiking, intention setting yoga, vision board workshop, candle lit yoga, Times Square Ball Drop, and fireworks. There are also cardio workouts and Instagram-able pop ups from the Woolrich, Star Wars, and Intersect by Lexus.
