Whirlwinds abound!!!

This morning I went to Jenn and Jill’s talk on becoming a passionista. Really great content! Very inspiring too :)

Before lunch, Tina, Sabrina and I went to a fabulous diva event at the Warwick Hotel called Getting Gorgeous

IMG_9249 (427x640)

It was quite the glamour event!

IMG_9250 (640x427)

Sabrina and I tried on some cool Miraclebody jeans – touted to slim you down

IMG_9252 (640x427)

They were hot! I came home with a pair!

Gorgeous jewelry by Lia Sophia

I love these!

But I came home with a gorgeous gold necklace!!

Also some Hanes socks and a new SWASH thing by TIDE that gets rid of wrinkles on shirts and a curling iron by Remington that Larbs had bribed me to give to her :)

By the time we got back to the Hilton, we were all famished for lunch

Lucky us it was a gorgeous spread!

A wonderful plate of vegetables!!!!

IMG_9268 (640x427)

Salad, roasted veggies, pasta salad primavera, Israeli couscous, grapes, a tiny pumpernickel sandwich, beet salad. It was awesome!!!

The desserts are ALWAYS good! Sabrina and I brought back plates for the table and I had bites of probably half of these. Just enough for all the pleasures of dessert to put me on the verge of feeling a bit sick. But thankfully I stopped just in time!

The best part of BlogHer is the Expo Hall!! I had so much fun talking to vendors and chatting up my blog. Lots of free samples to try!

My water bottle said hi to the Thermos booth!! Best water bottle ever!

IMG_9273 (640x427)

These ladies recognized me!! RDs from Edelman working the Jimmy Dean booth. They assured me I should not be too nervous about the RD exam :)

IMG_9274 (640x427)

I tried out the Tempurpedic Cloud. WOW. I was sold…

IMG_9276 (640x427)

Some nice entertainment

IMG_9279 (640x427)

A bite of Butterfinger with mom

IMG_9272 (427x640)

Got Milk?

IMG_9280 (427x640)

MAN I am TIRED! BlogHer is exhausting stuff!

We are glaming up for a really fun event with Kendall Jackson!

I convinced Larbs to curl my hair with my new Remington curling iron. I’ll be all ringlets soon :mrgreen:

Those little desserts look delicious!


6 Evan Thomas August 6, 2010 at 5:01 pm

It’s so nice to see bloggers getting together. Can’t wait for HLS


7 Laura August 6, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Glad you guys are having such a great experience! If it’s not too personal, are the items you got today part of the “swag” give-aways or do the vendors have items for purchase? It almost seems like the conference would pay for itself in a sense if you got all those items plus new insights from the breakout sessions!


8 Kath August 6, 2010 at 7:02 pm

All the swag is free. Usually sample size.but sometimes really cool stuff!


9 Freya @ Brit Chick Runs August 6, 2010 at 5:05 pm

That looks like SUCH a fun event – so much pampering and good food! I have major envy right now 😛


10 Trish @IamSucceeding August 6, 2010 at 5:07 pm

It just gets better and better!! =) Love those earrings too!


11 Kim August 6, 2010 at 5:08 pm

21 Lea August 6, 2010 at 5:36 pm

I can’t wait to see the ringlets. I like to wear my hair wavy too (when I have time), but it’s think and long so it takes time for me.

You and your sister are cute. Me and my sisters do the same…we do each other’s hair and make-up too.


22 lynn (The Actors Diet) August 6, 2010 at 5:47 pm

26 Brittany @ A Healthy Slice of Life August 6, 2010 at 6:03 pm

I am intrigued with these miracle body jeans… I’m going to look’em up :)


27 Mary @ Bites and Bliss August 6, 2010 at 6:08 pm

Looks like a fun event! I love all the boas 😛 and those pants look like they’d be cute! (from the leg shot anyway)


28 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) August 6, 2010 at 6:12 pm

31 Hannah August 6, 2010 at 7:24 pm

You ladies don’t need help getting gorgeous or glamorous! You’re naturally beautiful, imho :)

Mmm, butterfingers. I should probably crave the healthier stuff, shouldn’t I? Ah well, no threat… we don’t get betterfingers in Australia!


32 Marla August 6, 2010 at 7:52 pm


Do you get the jeans and necklace free for mentioning them on blog? Awesome!

What other goodies were in the swag bags?

Can’t wait to hear!

Sounds like there are some fun freebies at the conference 😉


33 Erica August 6, 2010 at 8:08 pm

How fun is this event? I’m totally jealous. Plus you get to hang out with Sabrina and Tina! I bet you three are having an absolute blast. Enjoy

39 Janna (Janna's Keeping it Real) August 6, 2010 at 10:38 pm

I hate to use the word jealous…so I’ll say this: I am uber envious of all the fun you ladies are having in NY!!!:0)


40 Wei-Wei August 6, 2010 at 10:49 pm

I can’t wait to see you with your hair curled! I bet you’d look great 😉 It’s funny to see almost parallel posts from you and Tina now! 😀 Just like back then with Caitlin haha. 😀

45 Arlene August 7, 2010 at 9:44 am

morning, Kath
been reading with interest all about the BlogHer adventure. I looked up the internet site for BlogHer, but it was not an easy read. Can you point me in the best direction to find out more about this conference for future? It seems like lots of fun, and that’s really what I need.
(congrats on your pretty new cottage in Charlottesville)

47 Erika @ Food, Fitness, & Fun August 7, 2010 at 3:44 pm

I love Lia Sophia. The jewelry is so cute and whimsical – my style!
