Feeling the Full Moon
Peacock Public Relations launched its monthly Full Moon Glow-UP Event Series, which includes activities to help guests capture the energy of the full moon. The first in the series was hosted by GQ and Maxim Model Carissa Rosario at the Coral Gables Museum where after a 6 p.m. check in, guests enjoyed beats by Mahtayo and complimentary drinks by Barcelo Rum. There was one-hour class of yoga by greenmonkey, followed by a 30-minute beauty and retail intermission, with participating sponsors such as Be Rad Cosmetics, Braid Bar by Glamsquad and Athleta. Valeria Mesa – a clairvoyant, astrologer and cosmic journalist — explained the full moon’s celestial functions.
“The goal behind this new event series is to unite the community for a transformative #FullMoonGlowUP which will hopefully, inspire positive changes in every participant’s daily life” says Susset Cabrera, CEO and Founder of Peacock Public Relations.
