Blogalicious Weekend: The Beach, The Bling and The Booze

Monday, October 11, 2010

I spent the past four days at The Blogalicious Weekend in Miami at The Ritz Carlton South Beach and in four words - I had a blast.

The conference brought together approximately 200 women to celebrate the diversity of all ethnicities in social media. And celebrate we did. We also networked, learned, laughed, bonded and created memories that we’ll hang onto until Blogalicious 2011. I had the privilege of speaking on The Chronicles of Fit Divas panel and enjoyed the awesome dialogue and real talk we had with the audience. Thanks to everyone who came out.

The Beach
So, I was staying on South Beach and there was no way I wasn’t going for a run while I was there.

My pre-run pic. Trying to be fabulous – it is South Beach

There’s a path that goes horizontal to the beach that I started to run along, but my foot quickly began hurting – that damn because of my plantar fasciitis – so I decided to slow down and just walk.

The Bling
Yes, the swag at the conference was in full effect. There were lots of great goodies and everyone seemed to handle it in very good taste, but one swagadocious item really stood out.

Bling, Bling – Gasp!

This gorgeous Fossil watch was given to all the attendees from the wonderful folks at Feeding Your Dreams at Sunday’s breakfast. I haven’t worn a watch in years, but um, now I will be rockin’ this one.

The Booze
That sounds so harsh. It wasn’t booze. It was wine, and lots of it.

Nice, right?

My BlogRollin’ partner, Christie, and I had the pleasure of working with The Wine Sisterhood at Blogalicious where they debuted the newest wine in their Middle Sister line, Sweet & Sassy. Throughout Saturday we hosted the Sassy Suite were conference attendees could come and meet the newest sister, sip a little wine and enjoy some yummy snacks. Needless to say the Sassy Suite was a huge success – good people, good conversation and good wine. We even gave away an iPad, gasp! Jessica hasn't put it down since she took it out the box.

Me, Christie and Sweet & Sassy

I’m trying hard to get back into the swing of things today. My mind and body think they’re still in South Beach, but my family and my inbox disagree.

Winks & Smiles,

any event that supports wine like that is a great event in my book! :) Not to mention staying at the Ritz had to be great! Glad to hear you enjoyed!
