Our 5th annual Getting Gorgeous happened yesterday in NYC. We have over 100 social media mavens attend and I cannot tell you how excited I was to have the function actually happen. It was 5+ months in the making. As soon as the doors opened, all the stress and anticipation just released from my body.

It felt like I gave birth – social media birth.

I am going to do a full write up this week. I just need to do a few things today – like head into school to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. Yes, today is her 9th birthday. We ran around all morning getting her some goodies for when she gets home.

Audrey and I loved every moment of the day. We loved seeing all our friends. Our event becomes like one big party which is always the best part!! And to my husband – the one who TOTALLY stepped up and took on SUCH A HUGE ROLE THIS YEAR – I want to say thank you! You are totally amazing and Getting Gorgeous with V05 would NOT have happened without you. Hands down!

Until later!
