Getting Gorgeous Blogger Event

Last weekend I attended the Getting Gorgeous event in NYC, where social media savvy women came together to “get gorgeous”. There were many giveaways, prizes (I won a gift card from BJs – woo hoo), yummy cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes, mini makeovers and many hair stylists on hand to spruce up everyone’s hair. It’s always good day when you get to see fellow blogger friends, meet people from great companies and celebrate being gorgeous both inside and out. And free swag doesn’t hurt either!

DegreeWomen was this year’s sponsor and the participating vendors/sponsors were: Sarah Potempa (such a sweet lady), Dream Water (works pretty well), Goody HairShopafrolicBJs Wholesale, Tide to GoSimply Orange JuiceFlip Out Sandals, Lifetime MomsWeight WatchersHair Room ServiceGeorgetown Cupcakes (YUM!), Sandals Resorts, BelliHanes, Bump It Up and Miraclebody.

Just a side note about the cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes – SO GOOD! The one I had was Mint Chocolate chip which is my ultimate favorite and I seriously could have ate like 3 of them! Also the food from Moe’s Southwest Grill that BJ’s is now selling was a great treat too – that guacamole hummus was awesome!!

I plan on trying out a few of the freebies I received and report back to you with reviews and information, so stay tuned.But the best part I wanted to share with you is that some of the brands are offering discounts to TSD readers to help you look even more gorgeous for your scrapbook photos .
