ARTS DISTRICT—Thanks to Visian ICL—a procedure which corrects vision by way of implanted lenses—Matchbox Kitchen treat-maker Sara Tso now has 20/20. As the brand's latest ambassador, she's celebrating this victory with a summer dessert party. This Wednesday from 7-10pm at Fifth studio (1201 E 5th Street #C) you can indulge in the organic baker's cake collection (!!!) as well as receive complimentary nail art by Rebel Grl Nails, sip wine or cold brew coffee, cool down with popsicles from Sweet Clementines, score cute temporary body art from Tattly, and learn more about the innovative procedure. Visian ICL will also be using this as an opportunity to find two additional ambassadors who will receive a free surgery (typical cost is around $8000). Ideal candidates are local creative ladies, whose clear sight could better their inspiring endeavors. RSVP for this sweet event by heading here.
