Getting Gorgeous

Wow….that is how I would describe the Getting Gorgeous event in New York this past weekend. Getting Gorgeous Events brings bloggers together with some great companies.  The fashion and beauty event was at the Metropolitan Pavillion on Sat. April 2 and it was a blast.   These events were created by two fabulous, smart and talented women: Vera Sweeney and Audrey McClelland.  

We connected with representatives from Tide, Hanes, Flipout Sandals, Degree, Goody Hair, LifetimeMoms and many more.  We also met some great bloggers including ladies from:  Frugalfamilyfunblog A mom knows best and Mabels Labels 

There is so much to talk about like…..

Those wonderfully dreamy cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake  in DC. Yes I had two – the red velvet and deep chocolate and I am still thinking about them – luckily they deliver.  

Any product from Belli Skin Care smelled amazing. I would use these lotions even if I wasn’t pregnant.  I liked their hand sanitizer the best. These products are great for expecting moms, new moms and baby skin care.  

I LOVE the concept behind Flip Out Sandals Flip flops with interchangeable shoe jewels. They also sell jelly sandals as well.  It brings a little bling to your summer flip flops.  We all know how much I love my flip flops!   

BJ’s Wholesale Club has a spread of dips including guacamole, hummus and salsa. ALL were yummy.

In our fantastic gift bag we received some great products from Hanes, Degree, Tide to go and these pretty earrings from Studio Jewel.   

A talented make-up artist created a smoky eye for me. Leora Edut did a great job. My travel companion, mommajam  thank goodness knew her way around and we had a blast not to mention some laughs along the way!   It was just a great time meeting other bloggers, talking to some great product companies and enjoying some great treats!




Spring Cleaning – Jewelry Storage

You know I love my jewelry but keeping it organized can be a real pain. To hang or not to hang?  To put in a tray or not?  Here are some neat solutions to solve that jewelry storage problem.

 The container store has some great storage solutions like the Green EVA Jewelry Store.  It is made of dense foam to help protect the jewelry and can be stored in a drawer. This is great for watches, earrings and rings.  The Green EVA Modular Drawer Organizers are so inexpensive you can buy a whole bunch and customize it as you wish as they are stackable.

 I do have the Pottery Barn Teen wire storage trays but instead of using them for jewelry I use them for my bath products!

I like this tray from Bed Bath & Beyond as it keeps sterling from tarnishing.  The trays have a dark brown faux leather exterior, a tan faux suede interior, and a lining treated with what the web site calls – Eliminox –  which keeps sterling tarnish resistant for up to 30 years with normal use.

If you have a ton of earrings try this folding earring rack from get organized

For those with tweens the Bling Hangit jewelry hanger is cute and you can store earrings and necklaces.   

Here’s to spring cleaning with our jewelry!

The Necklace

I have been a little preoccupied by the necklaces Ali Wenthworth has been wearing on the Oprah Show on Fridays.  Where can I get it?? I am so surprised no one else is talking about it!  

This season the style in necklaces is all about flowers and what is called the bib necklace.  I love them!  I checked out a few similar ones but really want to know where she got hers.  Most are expensive! But I did some digging and here are some of my favorite ones and stores that I think have really great jewelry.

I have this one from Banana Republic called the Garden statement necklace $98.00  but they might have sold out as it’s no longer on their web site and each story only received one or two

The Primrose garden necklace from J Crew is so pretty.  $115

Carol Lee Jewelry – The Floral Crystal and White Simulated Pearl Choker Necklace $350 – beautiful for special occassions….

H&M always has nice jewelry but you will have to head to your local store as they do not sell items online.

Also, check out for their necklace discussion!
