GettingGorgeous on a Gorgeous Saturday in NYC
I was lucky enough yesterday to be part of a fabulous event in Manhattan called Getting Gorgeous with CVS Beauty Club 2013.
Getting Gorgeous is a company created by two blogging rock stars Audrey McLelland and Vera Sweeny. Audrey and Vera are social media mavens who have so many sites between the two of them I couldn’t possibly list them all here!
This fantastic event is invite only and I was thrilled to be invited. It’s a great venue to network with other bloggers and meet brands and learn about new products.
You couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous day to be in the city. The weather was perfect and there is nothing like walking through the city on a great day!
My morning started out typically enough. I woke up and believed I had time to do a thousand things when in reality I barley had time get myself dressed.
My train was at 10:35 and I picked up fellow blogging friend A Mom on the Move, at 10:27. She, like myself, was completely unaware of the time and casually eating her breakfast when I arrived. Realizing how late it was she threw down her roll and we raced out the door. Making the 10:35 was a pipe dream and we just kept driving past the train station and put our faith in GPS.
Driving actually turned out to be a great idea. Everything fell into place, very little traffic and we found parking. We were extremely pleased with ourselves. So much so we treated ourselves to a great lunch at The Blue Water Grill after Getting Gorgeous.
There were so many great sponsors at Getting Gorgeous. CVS Beauty was offering manicures, hair styling and giveaways. Chevy was hosting a stuff your truck contest and Bacardi was making cocktails- too much fun!
