On April 15th and 16th I had the pleasure of attending/volunteering at the Bloggers At Midlife Conference here in Las Vegas. The conference was held literally less than ten minutes away from my house here in Summerlin.
It was really great to meet women who I follow on social media and those that also follow me. The women and men who spoke at the conference were very inspiring and knowledgeable in their field.
The organizers of BAMC16 brought in a great group of sponsors and each of them gave out some serious swag! I’m just highlighting a few of my fave.
First up, let’s talk about this cute tee shirt.
That’s right, finally…a shirt that says it for us! This is from Chico’s, one of the sponsors. Their new campaign is #HelloI’mFabulous! I didn’t realize the shirt came in different sizes. I happened to grab a Medium, which is usually my size but as you can tell, it’s too big. I tried to work my ‘magic’ and shrink it, but I had no luck at all.
They also gave out sunglasses, a bracelet AND a leopard print tote that I forgot to take a picture of.
Here I am sporting my new shades.
Miss Oreo decided to make a rare appearance to admire my new shirt!
Yes, Miss Oreo, you are fabulous too.
Next up, was Boiron, a manufacturer of homeopathic products, headquartered in France and with an operating presence in 59 countries worldwide. It is the largest manufacturer of homeopathic products in the world. I’m sure you have seen their products at your local drugstores and Target and Walmart. I have used their products in the past and know that they work so I was super excited to score all of this :
I’ll be sharing all of this with various family members. Well…except for those two boxes of Hot Flash Relief.😉
The last sponsor I want to talk about is Madison Reed, a company that specializes in professional hair color…at home! You can check out their website here.
They have a wonderful line of hair products. Their swag was shampoo, conditioner AND my new favorite product of all time…Root Touch Up!
The wonderful ladies at the table color matched us on the spot. I’m light brown.
Check out how well this product covered my gray :
If I was thinking, and obviously I wasn’t, I would have taken a before photo.
Then, the ladies mentioned that this same product is great for your brows…and they were right! Check out how ‘on fleek’ my brows are.
Um…ignore the wrinkles please.
But wait…there’s more! This happened at the conference too.
I won one of the drawings!
By the way, how cute are my new business cards? My husband designed them. He’s pretty proud of himself.
Of course I tried out the two products I won. I have to say that my hair has never been softer! The Style is used on damp hair and the Tame can be used on damp hair OR after your hair is dry and styled. I used it after I styled my hair and it did not make it greasy or limp at all.
Here is photographic evidence.😉
It looks funky on top because I did a lousy job of teasing it. Hey, a hairdresser I am not…lol.
Have any of you ever been to a conference? What was the best swag YOU ever scored?
