Clear “Right End” Hair Revolution

Attention ladies in the LA area – it’s time for a Hair Revolution!

CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™ is kicking off the “Right End” Hair Revolution to encourage women to work at the scalp, where 99% of hair’s natural strength and beauty comes from. CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™ nourishes the scalp and creates the right foundation for strong, beautiful hair.

For years, women have been working at the ends of hair, rather than the foundation – the scalp. Now, it is time to make the switch and start working at the other end.

As the face, and hair, of the brand, Heidi Klum will be kicking off the day’s activities at 10:30 a.m. at The Grove in Los Angeles.

Various CLEAR experiences and activities will be running until 6:00pm including:

–          Complimentary “strong and beautiful” wash & blowouts (walk-ins welcome!)

–          Beauty consultations with local expert Stacy Cox

–          The chance to win glamorous prizes (while supplies last)

–          A photo booth to capture your gorgeous hair & share your new look with friends

My Lucky FABB Experience

On Thursday, April 4th, I had the opportunity to attend the Lucky Magazine Fashion and Beauty Conference, or Lucky FABB.  What an exciting event to attend!

Presented by P&G Grooming, this was the 2nd Annual FABB West and the first blogger event of its kind, curating an elite group of digital fashion, beauty, technology and celebrity leaders along with influential advertisers to the blogger community.  Held at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, it was the perfect location for bloggers to commune, network, learn and show off their spring style!  It was a two day event, but I was only able to attend the first day which was an honor!

The day was filled with a series of panels featuring industry insiders such as Hillary Kerr (Founder, Who What Wear), Emily Schuman (Blogger, Cupcakes and Cashmere), and Gillian Gorman (Lucky GM, SVP).  Speakers included Drew Barrymore, Kelly Osbourne and Betsey Johnson, who gave us a sneak peek at her new Style Network show.  Some of the agenda topics covered were: “Diversifying Your Content,” “The Tools You Need to Grow Your Business,” “Creating a Voice of Authority,” “Pitch Fest,” and “The Business of Blogging.”

There was a lot of valuable information shared throughout the day and I definitely was taking notes because I wanted to learn about ways to make my blog better. Here are some of the thoughts that stuck with me:

  1. To expand into new content for your blog, ask your audience what they want to see – they’re the ones reading what you write and tuning in, so why not go to the source?
  2. Share your content on all the social media platforms you have a presence on.  You have might have different audiences on each one, so spread it across so you don’t miss a beat.
  3. If you dedicate yourself to a social media platform, be consistent with your content!  If you fall off for a while, readers may begin to wonder what happen and unfollow you.  Fuel them with something at least once a day!
  4. To impress a brand, think like a marketer (what brands would fit in on your front page?), pre-introduce yourself (ex. If you mention them in a post, let the brand know), Show them you can drive traffic, and be open to new ideas!
  5. It’s not about the number of followers you have, it’s about how engaged you are!
  6. To create a voice of authority, be authentic, declare yourself an authority and show it, do 3 things really well and focus on promoting those 3 things, shut out the noise!

We were well fed, and we had breaks to go check out P&G Beauty products, take photos for Lucky FABB and continue to mingle.

I met a lot of wonderful fellow bloggers including Javone Armada, Romy Raves, Jennifer Chan, The Recessionista and Always Stylish Mama!

The night ended with an intimate cocktail party with the Lucky May cover star Drew Barrymore and her product line Flower Beauty on display.  Drew is such a sweetheart and so easy to chat with!

Overall, I had an awesome time and can’t wait until the next one.  In the next few months I’ll be making some changes to my blog and hopefully will be launching my event!  I think Lucky should definitely have more of these on the West coast and allow for even more bloggers to attend!

The formula is infused with rich moisturizers and a proven skin protectant, perfect for keeping your pout healthy all winter long.

Be Well Expo – Beauty and Wellness at Your Fingertips

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Saturday, September 29th, I attended the Be Well Expo.  The first ever premier beauty and wellness expo of its kind was held at the LA Convention center which was the perfect place to immerse, indulge and shop! I was honored to be one of the first attendees to check out the latest in beauty and wellness technology, listen to leading experts and even get a quick massage!  Gel manicures, facials and hair demos were available to attendees to partake in for spa like pampering!  There were a few different things that I had never seen before, such a device to promote hair growth and bathtub yoga.  Exhibitors were excited to see consumers wanting to learn more about never seen before products and getting them engaged with new concepts for beauty.  I collected a lot of information that I am still reading over, but stay tuned  and I will be reporting on some of my favorites!

BeWell Expo – Where Beauty & Wellness Intersect

An expo is a gathering for attendees to come together, learn new things and walk away with tools to make a better you.  In addition, opportunities to connect with different people are even greater today, with social media at the forefront and the search for building a network for common good.  The chance to experience all that and more will take place when the BeWell Expo comes to town.

Held at the LA Convention Center September 29th – 30th, the BeWell Expo provides an environment to engage consumers on all things beauty with clear and simple answers to wellness, health and how to maintain a beautiful you.  Experts will reveal insider secrets and many products and services have been screened specifically for this event.  The first event of its kind, this will be a information hub that includes spa therapists, licensed estheticians, dermatologists, cosmetologists, nutritionists, professional skin care and spa companies, life coaches, detoxification experts and makeup artists all at your disposal under one roof!

You can start with a free professional skin analysis and consultation and then immerse yourself in one of the 10 themed pavilions such as Nail Fantasy, Hair Mania, Body Essential and Looks & Beyond.  Grab your friends and come to this event where you can get all your beauty and wellness questions answered and leave transformed!  Tickets are currently $25.

Night of Beauty at The Viceroy

On Tuesday, June 26th I had the pleasure of attending Night of Beauty II for an evening of pampering, beauty treatments, and shopping!  Executed by Spaphile and Three Day Rule, this second installment of the event was held at The Viceroy in Santa Monica.  The stage was set with part of the event taking place on the lovely outdoor patio and the rest inside.  The event started at 6:30pm and the line was already filled up with anxious, fashion forward ladies ready to get their hair braided, nails done, or a mini makeover! A portion of the proceeds benefitted I Am That Girl, a non-profit that inspires and create communities for women.
