This week, I am grateful for:
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Finally giving the baby a 'real name'. Ascending Butterfly is now officially http://www.ascendingbutterfly.com - I'd like to personally thank everyone for their encouragement, advice, and giving me that extra 'push' I needed to finally get this done! I wouldn't call it 'easy' or 'painless', but I will definitely call it worth it in the end! There are still some more changes in store, but for now you will probably immediately notice that the captcha code requirement has been removed! This is one suggestion we received from many of you, and we are happy to have implemented it. We still moderate comments, so they still will not appear immediately, but you no longer have to type a captcha code to make a comment, and we hope this makes entering giveaways way easier!
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - This week has taught me so many amazing lessons in not under-estimating my abilities, not selling myself short and never losing sight of my dreams! And I'm truly thankful. This week has taught me the importance of affirming that I really do walk in Blessed Assurance.
|New York Fashion Week American Launch of Emu Australia|
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I attended an amazing Fashion Week event for the American Launch of Emu Australia, you can check out my recap with additional photos HERE! New York Fashion week is always so fast paced and hectic, that it was really wonderful to close out the week with a show containing fashion that most people actually wear!
|WowWee Debut of Lite Sprites|
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I also attended some super fun events in conjunction with the Toy Fair, and I promise you'll see more detailed posts about these. I enjoyed seeing some new toys from PaperJamz at the Wowwee Event, and look forward to presenting the Lite Sprites and other great toys, including the new Justin Bieber Keyboard Guitar that was unveiled at the 2011 Toy Fair, that I got to see demos for! I actually really liked it the Bieber Guitar. Yes, I have officially scared myself! I had to snap this picture of the Lite Sprites because of course as you can see, there was a butterfly sighting!
|Fisher Price Magical Fairy Wings Dora|
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - In addition, I attended an event for Fisher Price where I had the chance to play with the toys in the 'Toy Lab' and rate the toys, hang out with my favorite NYC bloggie friends, and meet comedian Gilbert Gottfried in person! I have to say Fisher Price really went all out, and the staff at the venue which was the Loew's Hotel were amazing! (And the event manager in me will be keeping this space in mind for future events!) I couldn't resist taking a picture of Magical Fairy Wings Dora! I love all things with wings!
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I also attended a super fun event in conjunction with Travel Zoo's Local Deals called the "I heart NYC Meetup," hosted by Travelzoo held at SD26 - Groupon is not the only game in town anymore for local deals! Healthy competition means even better deals for us, what's not to love? We were sent home with a local deal to try out, and as soon as I have a chance to try this deal out, I will be sure to share it with you!
What are you grateful for today? I'd love for you to write in and share what you are grateful for this week. The more you say it, the more you speak it, and the more you live in gratitude, the more you will find reasons to be grateful for, and the more reasons that the universe will send you to be grateful for. So join me on this journey of gratitude and inspiration. And you can post here daily (even though my list will be posted weekly).
Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
