Home beauty Getting Gorgeous 2013 – A Day Of Glamour

The organizers of Getting Gorgeous 2013 were gracious enough to invite me to this awesome event. I was not compensated for this post.

Getting Gorgeous 2013

Last weekend I was invited to Getting Gorgeous 2013 and I had a really amazing time. I’ve been to events like these in the past and Getting Gorgeous 2013 was every single thing I thought it would be and more!

I was really impressed by the awesomeness of the layout and the overall fabulousity of it all. I bring to you the amazing sponsors for Getting Gorgeous 2013:

When I walked in, the first thing I saw was girls getting glammed up by getting their hair done and free manicures for all!

Then I went over to the BB Creme section where I was matched properly for BB Creme. The very nice beauty expert blended it for me and I admit, it looked pretty good. I had previously used a different brand of BB Creme but this one seemed to fit my tone better. I was happy to run into Kim from Beauty and the Bump and Makeup By Kim Porter.

Next I jumped across the way to visit with Thyme Maternity who has an amazing maternity line.

I made my way over to the downy/tide area and they have so many new products like these beads (that smell amazing!) I really love scent boosters in my  laundry so I was all over those!

I also stopped by Dial because they now have a body/hair wash for kids 2y-6y and one for 6y and up. They also gave me cute little bath toys for the kids 🙂

New balance was also in the building! I love and adore new balance so I was super excited to see them there! They have awesome new super light and stylish walking shoes and Heidi Klum is going to have a full line of products out soon as well! I love the colors the most!

 According to the Wall Street Journal there is no Blogger event without cocktails (insert side eye from heaven here). Bacardi was in the building for the dranks but at least these were low calorie cocktails.  I didn’t partake, and I gave my drink tickets away. As you can imagine it was a popular table 🙂

I also went over to Foster Grant and shamelessly revealed that I don’t own a pair of sunglasses because I can never figure out the correct shape for my face. She let me know immediately that I would need oversize or cat eyes. She made me try a few on and boom, I had finally found a pair that looks so good! I casually mentioned that I wish I would walk into a Duane Reade and buy them–she went into her bag of goodies and unfortunately there was no more of that pair left. Just my luck 🙁

Then she said I could HAVE them because it was so late in the day and they were going to be wrapping up soon OMG! SCORE!!!

(I just love this picture by the way, and if you follow me on instagram, google plus, and twitter you know that I changed ALL my avi’s! LOL good pics don’t come along all that often round these parts)

There were several more fantastic vendors and I enjoyed ALL of them. There are really some great new products, and the Getting Gorgeous 2013 team was gracious enough to send us home with a bag full of goodies.

I would have loved to attend this event! It looks like they really hooked you guys up with awesome glam gifts! The sunglasses look cute on you too! I need to buy a pair for the summer months. I don’t take the time I should to get glammed up.

I really need to go to a blogger event one of these days! I love the pampering/glam aspect of it since that is sorely lacking from my life right now.

Love this post! What type of BB cream worked for you? I’ve been desperately trying to find one that is good for my dark skin…other than Maybelline’s BB Cream.

Reply
Nellie May 5, 2013 - 8:09 pm

The one they tried on me was the Garnier brand? I have never tried them before, I tried Maybelline and it looks like this one has more coverage.

I need to focus on being more glam. I deserve it. I’m too hawt to be walking ’round like a hot mess (sometimes).

Oh my word! This is my type of event. I would have been in heaven with all of the girly things. I love a good pedi. You stay out and about at the RIGHT events. Good for you.

Nellie May 5, 2013 - 8:13 pm

Ha, thanks Andrea, I love a good pedi too, I just don’t take enough time to do them often!

Hey lady,

It was great running into the other day….That looked like so much fun. I love the glasses unfortunately I can’t really rock them since I am totally near sighted. Anyway love the piece …let me know about these blog events would love to attend one.

I don’t have a pair of sunglasses that I love, but I do wear a plain old pair.

I love going to events like these, but there in short supply here. I’m the exact same way when it comes to socializing and drinking, I always pass. Looks like you had an awesome time!

Reply
Nellie May 5, 2013 - 8:20 pm

Hey girl, so good to see you! Most of these event are invite only thats why you see me running solo all the time BUT if I get a chance to bring a friend I will surely let you know!

Reply
Nellie May 5, 2013 - 8:27 pm

Sorry Stacey, that last reply was meant for the one above you my whole blog is acting funky tonight!! But I agree with the drinking and socializing thing, its definitely not for me!

Kim Porter May 1, 2013 - 1:24 pm

It was nice meeting you, too! Great recap. I hope to run into you again soon. Yes, I take time to get beautified right at my desk at work. That’s about the only time I have to do so. My routine is short and simple though.

Nellie May 5, 2013 - 8:21 pm

Most likely we will run into each other again 😉 I am always doing the same thing, i’m pretty sure my new neighbor thinks I’m totally conceited LOL

This event looked like it was so much fun. I am working on the whole”glam” thing. I am a bit lazy with that, but I am getting better at it!
