It’s not very often that I attend blog events being that I’m a full-time working mom and I work 2 hours away from the city. Most events are held during the day which means I can’t always attend unless I leave my job early, take a personal day or (gasp!) call out sick! I don’t have many personal days nor sick days so I like to save them for those days when someone in my family is really sick.
But then there are events such as Getting Gorgeous that I wouldn’t miss out on even if it meant taking a day off! 😉 This time I left work early and it was worth every second!
The two gorgeous ladies behind Getting Gorgeous are Audrey McClelland and Vera Sweeney. Getting Gorgeous was founded in 2010. Their goal was to create an online and events based platform for connecting top tier bloggers with prominent lifestyle brands, as per their web site. I’m sure every single blogger would agree with me in that they have surpassed that goal because when a blogger hears “Getting Gorgeous,” they know it’s an event not to be missed!
I believe this year’s event is my 6th one so that would mean that I’ve been to every single Getting Gorgeous event and I plan on going every year! 😉
My Top Favorites From Getting Gorgeous:
Restylane Silk Beauty Lounge
Although I didn’t take full advantage of the lip enhancement (I’m a chicken – I don’t like needles!), I did manage to get a mini-makeover that was very much needed. It was nice getting the VIP treatment for once. It was also the place where I got to meet Miss Betsy V!! She was so nice!! I can’t wait to meet her beautiful daughter Z!
These bras were so soft and felt very comfortable. I was able to get a FREE bra fitting and a FREE bra that I will receive in just a few weeks. I can’t wait to get it.
KeVita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks
These drinks were amazing! I wish I had a lifetime of these. KeVita is certified organic, non-dairy, non-GMO, gluten free and vegan. The one I tried was the Lemon Ginger and it tasted so light and refreshing. It really hit the spot.
Looks like “real” caviar but the taste is incredible. I’m not much of a drinker but these lovely gems hit the spot. They were kinda strange at first but the taste was so delicious. They would be a huge hit at the next party for sure!
Spa Chicks on the Go
These women were fabulous! I took advantage of getting a quick and easy manicure that lasted me for days! Everyone complimented the color too. It was really relaxing getting my nails done. I can’t even remember the last time I got a professional manicure!
The Backyard Food Company
The creator of The Backyard Food Company is Audrey’s husband. These awesome dips and spreads were to die for! So amazingly good and so versatile too. You can add it on crackers for a snack or even incorporate them into your meal. I’m sure it would be delicious in a taco! 😛
I never heard of Trollbeads until the event but I’m so glad I did. These charms and leather bracelets are beyond adorable! You can add many beads to make a statement and/or add beads to match your outfit. Very cute with any outfit if you ask me.
