On The Go Beauty!

Kristi 5-12-13 014This weekend I attended the 5th Annual On The Go Mother’s Day Beauty event on the rooftop of The Thompson in Beverly Hills where I  enjoyed a full day of pampering thanks to Olay, Joico, Bellacures  and Ziba Beauty.  Beauty bloggers, media and celebs all brought their moms, grandmas and sisters to this fun day of beauty which also included brunch delights and cocktails by the pool.  I brought my dear friend Kelly, who has been like a sister to me ever since I first moved to LA.

Kristi 5-12-13 048Did you spot The Voice’s Christina Milian in that picture? Christina is such a beautiful and sweet young mom and it was great to see her with her gorgeous daughter, Violet,  at this event getting a henna tattoo, manicure and learning more about the Olay Regenerist micro-sculpting eye cream & lash serum duo.  We got to check out the OlayWowEyes app and see our eyes light up Times Square!

Kristi 5-12-13 028 The Thompson provided an amazing setting for this event.  It was my first time there and I’m already excited to go back – the rooftop pool is the perfect place for a relaxing LA day.

Kristi 5-12-13 019I had such a wonderful time at this event and came home with a great bag of swag:

Kristi 5-12-13 064I’m excited to try these liners and mascaras c/o Ziba Beauty! I started using the Olay eye cream & lash serum as soon as I got home Saturday night – it promises smoother lids and nourished lashes in 1 week so I’ll share my before and afters with you next week.  I can already see a difference in my lashes after just 2 applications!

In addition to all the fun I had this weekend at the On The Go Beauty event, I also visited the Unique LA Spring show at the California Market Center downtown yesterday and met with talented local designers and have lots to share with you about my visit.  In the meantime,  I’ll be spending my day packing and organizing for our move – I can’t believe it’s only a week away!!!
