Fun, Fit & Fabulous Women’s Health Conference

I attended the Fun, Fit & Fabulous Women’s Health Conference that was held August 17, 2013 at the Wyndham Grand Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. This conference was sponsored by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. The conference started off with a fitness warm-up to get the ladies moving in the morning. The women could take advantage of the health screenings that were being offered or attend the seminars.

After did my health screenings, I attended a cooking demonstration being conducted by Elise Wims. Elise, a Pittsburgh native participated on Season 9 of Hell’s Kitchen where she placed third overall. She made a delicious watermelon salad.  I also attended another cooking demonstration Elise held in the afternoon where she made her goddess smoothie. Her website also has recipes. http://www.elisethedivachef.com/

You can tell she truly loves and is passionate about what she does. I already follow her on Twitter and Instagram. http://www.thehollywoodtrainer.com/

New York & Company Haul

It’s been a while since I last bought myself clothes for work. I was bored with my wardrobe and looking for a change. I would see the New York & Company store at the mall but I was always reluctant to shop there.  I thought the clothes were way above my price range. I just happened to walk by the store and saw the 80% off sign in the window. I could kick myself for not shopping at New York & Company sooner.

Image

Five shirts and two pairs of pants for under $60, I will definitely be shopping at New York and Company again!

Another Urban Decay Event at ULTA

I visited a different ULTA store located in the North Hills suburb of Pittsburgh, PA this past weekend.  Di the Regional Manager for Urban Decay greeted me.  This Urban Decay event was smaller than the one I went to in October.

My Recent trip to ULTA

I visited my favorite ULTA store (Homestead, PA just outside of Pittsburgh) this past weekend.I had the pleasure of meeting the Regional Manager for Urban Decay. Her name is Di (short for Diane). I was trying to get her to spill the beans about any new palettes Urban Decay is coming out with. She did mention a new palette that will be out for the Holidays but it won’t be named Book of Shadows. She also told me about an event Urban Decay is having at the ULTA in Homestead Saturday, October 6, 2012. This event will be from 11:00am to 5:00pm. Stay tuned…
