This was my first time to a blogger conference and I was so excited to find a Gilt City deal and get a day pass with a discount. The ticket normally goes for $350 for the day ($500 for VIP…I know!) But with the Gilt City coupon etc I got it for $250! I was excited to purchase it for $100 off. I am all about the bargain!!
Getting back to the event: It starts off at 8:30AM and the signing in was pretty painless and got our badges and track numbers right away. (the only thing about the track number was even though you went with a friend, you might be seperated due to this..which is good and bad…ALSO that I barely saw the people in the Track #2 group) After that we were told to sign in for our “mentorship program” This is where we get to choose who we want to have a sit down with. Its the Mentor and 15 of us, which I would say was probably one of the best things they did at this event. The ones I wanted to get were already full so I went for second best and also wanted a person who was fearless and will tell it to you straight…I chose Gabi Fresh and Bare Minerals Founder Leslie Blodgett.
Then we all head into the main stage area and grab breakfast! This is where the mingling starts! My goal for the day was to meet at least 3 people and exchange information and already by breakfast that was done with. I loved the energy from everyone about being so excited to learn from today!
THEN the classes begin! It was back to back all the way till lunch, but even then you are mingling and trying to absorb what just happened. Def don’t get much alone time! Lunch was also pretty tasty and everything was displayed so nicely. The decor of the event was beautiful! Really liked all of the little touches. Even from the decal on the bathroom!

Been wanting to challenge myself to something. You know how sometimes you need to hold someone or something acceptable for you to get sh*t done….Well, I think this is a good excuse. I know I have tons to do already…and there are soon many things I want to challenge myself to do for 100 days straight ( I can honestly make you a list if I had the time) BUT I have decided that since I love logging so much …and since that mainly only happens once a year when I vlog for everyday (vlogams) that I want my “project” to be blogging for 100 days straight!!
Gahhhhhh I don’t know why I am doing this …. but at the same time I know I want to…. ” The heart wants what it wants” says Selena G.
I am planning to start on April 6th 2015 and will be using the hashtag #100dayvlog
IF ANYONE WANTS TO JUMP IN, lemme know!
It really is a cool idea. If you want to read more about it check out The Great Discontent website!

I am super excited to be working with the Ace Paint Studio on the 31 Days Of Color campaign. Been wanting to do a painting DIY for the longest time and this just gave me the best opportunity to do so! Before I started the project I went down to my local Ace Hardware store to see what the Paint Studio was all about and thats where I got really inspired! Going to The Paint Studio at Ace is like going to your neighbor. Seeing all the beautiful colors I started to pick the color cards and mix and match them. I actually bought another jar of paint, but am going to save it for another project!…that will be in another post! lol

Glitter Chocolate for Valentines Day

vdaychocopic2

vdaychocopic3

Just a little idea for that special someone, or if you want to treat yourself to some glittery sweetness, this is the chocolate for you!
I bought some edible glitter in the colors pink, purple and gold and placed it in the candy jewel mold. Advice here is to use a glitter/food duster brush to get the sides and all.( I found out afterwards! whoopsy!) Then you melt the chocolate. The one I got was super easy to do in the microwave. And using a spoon place it in the mold and tap the chocolate into the mold when its all placed.When you let the chocolate cool, dont place it in the fridge or freezer, it will create bubbles or add moisture. Just let it cool in room temperature.
After I took them out the glitter wasn’t on the sides so I went back and added some more glitter!lol The more the merrier, right!
Then go ahead and box those sweets and give it to that special someone! Hopefully you will give it a try and let me know how it turned out!!
