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!

New Blistex Products & GIVEAWAY!!

Blistex Moisture Melt

Blistex Simple and Sensitive

Time for a holiday giveaway!  I am a huge fan of Blistex products and they never cease to amaze me with the products they come out with to keep your lips moisturized.  Just in time for the cold season, Blistex is rolling out two new lip balms, Moisture Melt and Simple and Sensitive!

·         Blistex Moisture Melt is a super hydrating balm with shea butter and aloe-enriched soft beads that are suspended in the formula and melt into lips for an added moisturizing boost and long-lasting resistance to dryness. The formula is infused with rich moisturizers and a proven skin protectant, perfect for keeping your pout healthy all winter long.

·         Blistex Simple and Sensitive contains only six carefully selected ingredients, including cocoa butter, sunflower seed oil, jojoba, vitamin E, microcrystalline wax and a preservative (phenoxyethanol), making it perfect for those with sensitive skin.  Lip balm users who are conscious about the number of ingredients in their personal care products will also enjoy Simple and Sensitive.

So which one is for you?  Why not try them both? With a retail price of $1.59-$2.49, these lip balms are now available at drug stores, supermarkets and mass merchandisers nationwide.
