This is me with Theresa Selvaggio, one of the Executive Vice Presidents of Estée Lauder at the Macy's event. She was wildly entertaining and wicked smart; She told us all about how Estée Lauder got her start and what a trailblazer she was back in the 1950's. She was smart, ahead of her time, a business woman, an entrepreneur. I already buy and use Estée Lauder, but if I didn't, I would have after that presentation. I also loved her because she told me I had beautiful skin and flattery will get you everywhere.
Me, Cathy from MayberryMom, Kristen from Motherhood Uncensored and Nora from Nonlinear Girl (on a stick). Seated right next to us, out of sight, was The New Girl and I should have made her pregnant ass stand up and be in the picture because she is all kinds of awesome. She's one of those people that you meet and you feel like you've known forever and I'm pissed I didn't take a picture of her and her pretty shiny hair. Sigh.
Since he is car crazy and right this minute, knee-deep in a Transformers Bumblebee obsession, (he's a Camaro in case you aren't hip to that) I took this picture for my son who would have freaked the fuck out about this Camaro in the expo hall.
Unbeknownst to her, more than once, I stold this delicious baby because he is almost the same size as my own, just to feel squishy baby-ness in my arms when I missed mine too much. Those leggings? Seriously? SERIOUSLY? I could DIE.
Could I interest you in a flash drive? Or ten?
Carson Kresley's autograph. Guess the blogger?
The Blogess. (Picture taken at MamaPop. Even thought they wouldn't let me in because my name wasn't on the RSVP list EVEN THOUGH I TOTALLY RSVPD! I DID! I KNOW I DID. (I did, didn't I?)YES I KNOW I DID.) Catherine wouldn't even let me in to tell Mayberry that I couldn't get in, which was a wise move on her part because I totally would have stayed. Fire code be damned. They did let me in later, so we're cool now.
One of the more fun surprises of the year was the email I received from BlogHer about possibly reviewing an Estée Lauder product. I'm a loyal user of Estée Lauder cosmetics. They work with my skin, especially their foundations. Based on that alone, I volunteered to do a review, should they need me.
Lucky me! They did! I also found out that I'd be invited to the product launch in Chicago the evening before BlogHer starts. Estée Lauder sent us reviewers a little questionnaire to complete so I am hoping upon hope this will lead to a make-over, because how fun would that be? Also, I hear bloggers take a lot of pics at BlogHer and I want to look good.
I've never attended a fancy launch party at a department store, but when I picture it, I see myself drinking champagne. Will there be bubbly? I'll be writing about the party in the weeks after BlogHer so stay tuned for an exciting re-cap.

I love American Idol. Maybe not with the heat of one thousand teenaged girls but even though I'm so over Simon and Paula I still find myself tuning in every week. Thanks to Tivo I can even gloss over most of the results show and still have time for Lost (yesss!) so really I have no reason not to watch it.
