I realize that this is SO late and since I will be back to NY next week this seems kind of silly to update you on the my meanderings. I rather just show you in photos what I was up to, but since I hardly Instagrammed as I was so busy – here is a quick run down.

Wednesday – Checked into the Renwick, which is clearly becoming my home away from home. If you remembered, I stayed here last December and I wrote about it for RESIDENT magazine. I got to stay in a beautiful suite that had a great living space. So pretty.

Thursday – Meetings at Hearst with Cosmo and O Magazine. Here is a quick story on how I scored an umbrella that saved my well-thought out outfit (I was on the hunt for a week before developing the perfect outfit driving a few friends crazy). I was on route from Columbus circle to Hearst when it started to pour, I ducked into a building alcove and I approached two guys, one was carrying an umbrella. I asked them if i could buy their umbrella for $25, and the guy said, “This is a $35-45 umbrella and I really like it.” I thanked them  and spotted two ladies walking down the street. I ducked under one of their umbrellas and I said, “Lets keep walking, I need to tell you a story… I wrote this book… I have a big meeting… Clearly I’m not prepared.” By the end of the block the lady gave me her umbrella. SO FANTASTIC.

When I got to Hearst I realized that I did not have my ID. Again the security guard came through after I went into my soliloquy of who I was and why I was there.

Friday – Two morning meetings. It’s always great to put the face to the name. And lunch and dinner catch ups.

Saturday – I did a lot more catch up with old friends.

Sunday – I went to a TechStyle NYC event in a cool townhouse where I was introduced to a few brands like Heisel. They are company using new technologies to create clothing. I was given reflective thread and I still am deciding on what I can use it to decorate.

After a whirlwind time in NY, I went back home for 4 days and prepared for a conference in San Diego….

eLo Review

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of hosting a Love List Lounge sponsored by SkinnyGirl Sparklers at TechStyleNYC. Besides chatting with media and fashionistas, I met Timothy George of eLo Lipcare. We actually bonded over the fact we were silver shoe twins – but I digress 😉

I was so busy during TechStyleNYC that I didn’t have a chance to try out any eLo products until this weekend! Little did I know, that I was definitely in for a treat.

With less than 6 ingredients per product, it leaves your lips moist and smooth. It also has a smell that makes you want to eat the entire tube. That last reason alone makes eLo a winner in my books!

Here is the ingredients in the products I ordered (full list of products and their corresponding ingredients can be found on the site).

DAY – avocado oil, jojoba oil, spf15, peach extracts

NIGHT – shea oil, jojoba oil, vitamin e, spearmint oil, vanilla extracts

SANGRIA – shea oil, jojoba oil, spf15, coconut oil, watermelon extracts, Bordeaux mica

MINT – macadamia oil, jojoba oil, organic raw cane sugar, organic agave nectar, spearmint extracts

The not-so-secret secret to ELo’s success, is that products are made in small batches of 40. No mass production here! The extra bonus is that this yummy, curated lip care now ships to Canada! Win win! Yay!
