During the busyness of BlogHer (and boy were we busy with four off-site events!), it was a pleasure to kick-off the non-stop weekend with a visit to the R&R Suite. Hosted by Trumpeting Media (Suzanne of Mom Confessionals; Nancy of The Mama Maven; Esti of Primetime Parenting and Davina of Dancing Hotdogs), this relaxing event was held at the iconic Four Seasons Hotel where guests were greeted with manicures, back massages and delicious milanos (specifically the amazing Milano Melts and Salted Pretzel Milanos) from Pepperidge Farm as we caught up with friends, chatted with some brands and relaxed before the bustling weekend.
At this unique event we loved the chance to talk with brands that were not on the expo floor as a way to connect and possibly feature on the site. We were really excited to learn more about Evologie, a new skin care brand that uses a patent pending YS3 Complex that is designed to "break the breakout cycle." We loved hearing about how this product can reduce breakouts, the size of blemishes, dark spots AND create a smoother texture to the skin. We are covering a full-review on this brand soon and we can't wait to share all of our clear-skin stories with you.
We also loved chatting with the The FitBit team as we learned how this wireless system works to give you a complete picture of your health by tracking your steps, sleep, and daily activity. We cannot wait to test this one out to keep us motivated and make small fitness changes everyday.
We were right there jamming with Esti of Trumpeting Media as she showcased the fun House of Marley collection. We loved the portable speakers that also happen to be Bluetooth enabled, so you can play tunes from your computer or from your phone. We were also really into the sleek and fashionable in-ear headphones that we learned provided a crisp and clean sound - perfect for the subway or long travel tips with the kids.
Finally, we loved connected with Beaches Resorts and hearing about their latests packages. We ventured to the Beaches Negril Resort and Spa in May (see our full review here) where we experienced a family-friendly environment complete with private beaches, countless pools, stellar childcare services and loving Sesame Street characters to greet our kids. This all-inclusive resort is also amazing for moms to enjoy luxurious spa treatments (hello, massage!) or simply lounge in paradise.
As a media company, Trumpeting Media also participates with charitable organizations, and for the suite they conducted a 'Tweet for Good Campaign' where for every tweet various brands donated one dollar to Feeding America, St Jude Children's Research Hospital and the National MS Society. Through this initiative they raised $500 and were able to reach four million people to support three amazing organizations,A small amount, but every dollar counts. We love our social media can be used for good!
A niche event that catered to various blogs, we loved connecting with brands and catching up with friends, and simply relaxing before the conference.
