Weekending + GIVEAWAYS {October 27, 2014}

What a fun-filled, jam-packed weekend! I'm pretty exhausted since I was constantly on the go all weekend, but it's a small price to pay!

FRIDAY
Friday night was spent at a bar downtown celebrating my sweet friend Emma's birthday. She has a longstanding tradition of posing with mini pumpkins on her head on her birthday, so of course all of the party guests brought their own mini pumpkins to get in on that action.



SATURDAY

Our long-awaited blogger brunch finally occurred on Saturday! M and I had such a blast hanging out with the lovely ladies from A Little Glitter, The Kari Diaries, Your Beauty Fix, and La Dolce Vita. We covered so many different topics over our pizza and prosecco, and while I'm pretty sure our waitress was very happy to see us eventually go, I'm sure we could have talked for many more hours!



As a small token of our appreciation for these other bloggers, M and I gave them a couple of small treats: mini champagne bottles glitzed up with gold glitter and a custom Blogger Brunch logo tag, plus these adorable taxi cookies from Eleni's.



After brunch, we hopped on the subway and went uptown to the Simply Stylist Conference.


We were gifted with quite the generous swag bag, and sipped some cocktails while chatting up the vendors and other bloggers.



I was super excited to receive a pair of Dittos jeggings with side zippers, which retails for $89!


When I returned home, there was one more surprise waiting for me - my Fall Beauty Swap products! My partner, Calli, sent me a package full of beauty goodies that I can't wait to start trying out this week.


I wound up dancing the night away in Hoboken with a few friends, then finished the night back in Manhattan at the cocktail lounge down the street from my apartment. I have no idea how I managed to drag myself out of bed on Sunday because I'm getting tired all over again just reading about Saturday's packed schedule!

SUNDAY
Sundays are best spent with those you love, so it makes perfect sense that I spent yesterday hanging with my true love, Michael Buble. He was filming his annual Christmas TV special at Radio City Music Hall, and I was lucky enough to snag some free tickets! Even though it's not even Halloween yet, I'm now totally in the Christmas spirit!


It was fantastic to see him perform from such a great seat, and his usual sassy banter definitely took center stage! Michael was joined by special guest Ariana Grande, who also gave a wonderful performance. I managed to sneak just one quick picture of the set...can't wait to see the final TV product!


And finally, we're starting this week off with a brand new giveaway! We've teamed up with Nina and some other fantastic bloggers to bring you some of our favorite pink products in honor of October being breast cancer awareness month.

And don't forget, our Rituals Cosmetics giveaway ends tomorrow, so make sure you check it out:

  10. Look at all you pretty blogger gals - what a fun weekend! Despite the odds of developing breast cancer, knowing you're literally 1 in 8 women to be diagnosed - or know someone is - makes it a more urgent cause than ever.

  11. Looooved this weekend and now I want so many more like it (even though I went hard on that prosecco!). You girls are phenomenal and I had the BEST time... Uhm, Michael Buble is maybe my soulmate, so I'm on jealousy overload.
    (Funny story - I looked at the champagne bottle on the Path, and so by the time I got to Hoboken, my hands were COVERED in glitter... so Anthony and I were both very sparkly all night!). You two are WONDERFUL and I adore you <3
