As I arrived to the wonderful venue, Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel on Sunday morning, I was greeted by some very nice ladies who gave me a wrist band and told me to return it when I left to obtain my goody bag. I must confess I was anxious to see what was in the bag! Soon after, I headed towards a table with Goody products. Have you seen these? Incredible...they can be used as a hair tie AND a bracelet. How about the ones that can be used as both, a necklace and a headband...wow, right?
Soon after my Goody astonishment...I was photographed on the pink carpet. Let me just say one thing...while some enjoy the time they spend in front of a camera...I get extremely shy. The photographer took a couple extra pictures because...and I quote, he was "diggin' [my] outfit." (Blushing!) Nevertheless, he was very nice.
As I made my way towards the room, I took note of all the details. My favorite things were the colors: silver, pink and white. It looked elegant and oh-so-glam! All the stations were busy with activities that The Beauty Social offered:
