Getting Gorgeous With V05 – Full Event Recap!! #gettinggorgeous

getting_gorgeous_vo5.jpgI finally found a minute to write up my recap post for Getting Gorgeous with Vo5. Our 5th annual event was the best one yet!! We had 100 bloggers and social media mavens attend and it was SO MUCH FUN! Our brand sponsors B-R-O-U-G-H-T it this year! Everyone had something fun going on! It was one interactive space after the next. Are you ready?

Vo5 was our title sponsor and they pampered our guests with hair treatments and styles. I LOVED how everyone’s hair came out! We kept telling our friends to make reservations for dinner. All glammed up and nowhere to go? No way — I hope at least a few people took advantage of their fab looks.

Vo5 had plenty of samples on hand for the bloggers to check out and take home. I’ve been using their hot oil treatments ever since.

Now onto the rest of the group —

Getting Gorgeous Rexist

ReXist 360 gave everyone a lesson about resistance training.  Bloggers put on their bands and tested them out first hand. Everyone took home a set too! Amazing.

Pampers not only offered up samples of their Pull-Ups but they set up a pampering station (get it) with hand and foot massages. AHHHHHHHHH. I’m on the Pampers Baby Board so I was SO THRILLED to have this brand with us at Getting Gorgeous.

Getting Gorgeous Bali Bras

Bali Bras offered up fittings and I cannot tell you how many women told me they were wearing the WRONG SIZE! Amazing. Depending on what type of bra you needed, Bali reps were on hand to guide to while selecting your free sample.

Summer Infant had a complete set up showcasing strollers, accessories, baby gear and more. Within their space they also talked to bloggers about the Born Free bottle line and offered up shaved ices to the guests. It was a REALLY hot day – so Getting Gorgeous attendees kept coming back for MORE. 🙂

I actually have a review that I need to get up about one of their pieces. Stay tuned!!

Getting Gorgeous Vitabath

 

Ok seriously – I’m a believer. Vitabath scents are out of control fantastic!! Oh my word. WOWZERS. You need to check them out. I don’t have to say more. Everyone got to walk home with full sample sizes of a few of the lines. Delicious!

Getting Gorgeous CalgonCalgon take me away!! Calgon offered astrology readings and then depending on what type of person you were, a different scent was offered. So fun, right? Designer Impostors had their Body Fantasies line for grabs. Lots of different fragrances for the bloggers to sift through and grab.

Getting Gorgeous Stop and Shop

Stop and Shop gave summer grilling tips to the group. Perfect timing!! They offered up sampling, snacks and recipe cards. So much fun!

Getting Gorgeous Voli

 

And what about drinks?! Voli was our drink sponsor this year! They offered up some amazing cocktails that EVERYONE enjoyed. When the guests checked in, we gave them two drink tickets to sample both options. Yum and Yum.

Getting Gorgeous Whosevent

Photo booth time!! Whosevent was so fun! Props – instant gratification and the means to upload to social media on the spot. SCORE!! Loved having them with us.

Getting Gorgeous Red Carpet Kids

And to add a little fun and humor to the event, we had Red Carpet Kids with us manning the RED CARPET. They interviewed everyone who attended and from what I saw it was ONE SMILE AFTER THE OTHER. I LOVED IT!

I also want to note that I attended a Red Carpet Event in the past with my children and we had the time of our lives. Honestly, if you live in the tri-state area, you should book something PRONTO. You will not be disappointed.

Getting Gorgeous Passion Roses

Last but not least we have Passion Roses. Here’s the thing. We signed them on a few days before the event. I’m not kidding. I’m talking 2 or 3 days before Getting Gorgeous. We were scrambling to get everything in order – trying to get them on the sign. It was CRAZY. But we knew we had to make it work and thank goodness we did because everyone was INSANE about the bouquets they received. A dozen roses for every attendee. Can you imagine?! What a surprise. I cannot tell you how many photos went out that evening – such a beautiful takeaway. When I came home with the roses, the kids were so happy to see them.

That’s that!

We had a wonderful event! Until next year.
