Shape Magazine Meet and Tweet

You guys, I’m back from Mexico (for good this time, fingers crossed) and just in time to have attended this amazing event last week.I attended the Shape Magazine Meet and Tweet in Santa Monica featuring Sonya Dakar, Dr. Rodan, Bogs footwear, and Anhu footwear

The setting was on the beautiful Santa Monica beach. It was a cool morning, but it became a warm and sunny afternoon. #WestCoastBestCoastI attended the Shape Magazine Meet and Tweet in Santa Monica featuring Sonya Dakar, Dr. Rodan, Bogs footwear, and Anhu footwear

There were various speakers giving us fitness and blogging motivation, but I was most excited by this panel regarding skincare – Dr. Rodan from Rodan&Fields (creators of Pro-Active) and Sonia Dakar, famous facialist to the stars.

FORTY YEARS OLD and not a wrinkle on her plump and dewy skin. She swears by their company’s Organic Omega Booster, so I was thrilled to find it in the goodie bag at the end of the day.

Here are some things we learned at the skincare panel:

  • Dr. Rodan recommends treating your entire face, not just spot-treating. She’s also looking to Korea for innovative beauty treatments, including overnight patches for expression lines
  • Sonia and Mimi Dakar like facial oils
  • And they all agree that sunscreen, sleep, and exercise are great for your skin

Then it was lunch time!

And this pair of rain boots from Bogs. It’s supposed to be an El Niño year in Los Angeles…I might just use out of these rain boots yet.

I may or may not have been most excited about the gifts from Rodan&Fields and Sonya DakarI attended the Shape Magazine Meet and Tweet in Santa Monica featuring Sonya Dakar, Dr. Rodan, Bogs footwear, and Anhu footwearRodan&Fields’ gift is Acute Care – patches you wear on your expression lines overnight (inspired by k-beauty), and Sonya Dakar gifted us with the Organic Omega Booster that Mimi loves.

I’ve already started using some of the products in the goodie bag and I’m planning reviews of them now. There are some gems in there, let me tell you.

Thank you so much to Shape Magazine for inviting me to such an amazing event, and thanks to all the sponsors for the incredible gifts!

SoCal Blogger Brunch

This weekend, I attended the second monthly SoCal Blogger Society brunch. (Yes, I am completely remiss for not blogging about the first brunch last month; I suck).

It was held at Sunny Spot in Venice. I had the roasted veggie omelette. It was…okay.Sunny Spot VeniceSunny Spot Venice

This month I got to meet Camile from Challenge Mantra in person! I was so happy to meet her.Blush and Barbells, Challenge Mantra

Meeting new friends is the best part of blogging.

This is LaMesha from Fake French Girl (she drove up from San Diego!), Leeann from Join the Gossip, and you can see Kate from Nautical by Nature’s right arm.I should have taken more photos, but I was busy chatting away with LaShon from For the Love of Curls and Elisabeth from Headbands and Bagels. There were many other lovely ladies in attendance that I didn’t get a chance to talk to, but there’s always the next event to fix that!

Thanks so much to Alex of Stylista Confessions and Kate and Leah from LA Brunchers for organizing this event. I can’t wait until next month’s brunch!
