8 FREE Indulgences, 1 Holiday Pop-Up

In case you haven't noticed, R29 is really (read: really, really, really) into the holiday season. If our DIY ornaments (just wait and see), holiday cocktails, and party dresses aren't proof enough, we're confident our hilariously fun Tinseltown videos do the trick. And yet, we've got another festive trick up our sleeves: The R29 Tinseltown Bazaar, an entire tangible, real-world pop-up of curated designer gifts for everyone you've ever met, and sleigh-loads of FREE (yes, really) services and activities. We're talking nail bars, hair braiding, DIY cards, makeovers, tarot card readings, and styling advice from your favorite editors.
So, how do you cash in on this trove of $0,000.00 goodness? No raffles, no contests, heck, you don't even have to be on the "nice" list! Just stop by today through Sunday, December 16, from noon to 6 p.m., for some face time with your favorite R29ers, and yes, all of those gratis goodies, too. We know, we've really outdone ourselves this time.
