Sorry it has taken me so long to update my blog BUT I have some exciting news to announce! Eliza Elliot is the winner of the Shabby Apple giveaway for a $50 gift card! I have emailed her about this but have not heard back yet; if you know Eliza, please tell her to get in touch with Charlotte from My Pixie Blog at email@example.com so we can get her her prize asap!
If I do not hear back from her by Friday, I’ll have to draw another name from the Random Generator. Whomp!
Last night I went to a really great Blog Meets Brand event hosted by the fabulous girls of Single Edition Media, a NYC-based agency that puts bloggers in touch with brands to spread the word about new products, exciting offers, and anything that might interest the large market of singles out there. Last night’s event featured some amazing sponsors including Delta Airlines, Elizabeth Arden, Completely Bare (you may recognize the founder from The Real Housewives of New York), BP Cleanse, Foot Petals, Nanette Lepore, and Glo. I tried samples of juices from BP Cleanse, received a mini makeover from the girls at Elizabeth Arden, drank two glasses of vino, mingled, munched on grilled cheese with truffle oil, met extraordinary bloggers and rekindled with old friends. I’m so very glad I went. Events like these remind me of how much I love NYC.
Miraculously, I didn’t trip on my heels, was able to walk comfortably in a dress, and didn’t feel too socially awkward attending a blog event alone. Not sure if anyone else experiences weird social anxieties about hanging out in large crowds with fabulously beautiful women??
The loft space in Soho rented out for the event was set up well enough that we were able to mingle, learn about the products, and walk around comfortably. Personally I really appreciated the fact that the products were spread out on two floors, allowing enough space to get to know each brand and talk about the products with the reps. Flight attendants from Delta were on hand to discuss the new terminal which will soon open at JFK. As Scott explained to me, it’s aim is to create an enjoyable airport experience for customers who have been dismayed by JFK’s airport in recent years (add my name to that list; I’m excited to see new changes to come soon!).
I received some pretty cool goodies, including lip gloss, a daily youth restoring serum, and eight-hour cream from Elizabeth Arden; Everyday Glo teeth whitening maintenance and antioxidant Superberry toothpaste from Glo (as seen on Dr. Oz); Brazilian Spa Clay Body Wax Strips from Nair; and Tip Toes for flip flops from Foot Petals. I’m all ready for summer!
