Weekly Moment of Gratitude - @VLANY Trunk Show AND More Winning!

This week, I am grateful for:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Thursday (3/24), I had the opportunity to attend the VLA New York Trunk Show!

VLA celebrates the contributions of Volunteer Attorneys, Pro Bono Coordinators, Law Firms, and Corporate supporters bi-annually at their Summer and Fall Benefits. Their Board of Directors and the entire organization are proud to recognize the extraordinary efforts of the volunteers who donate legal services worth millions of dollars to the New York arts community each year.

Many of the brands in attendance at this invite only event were donating proceeds from the evening's sales to Japan! Brands in attendance included:

Bria Bridal
Charles Alexander Neckwear
Chaya Gruber
Christopher Beane
Corrente Handbags
Henley and Sloane
Janna Levin
Judith Haas
Khirma Eliazov
Lisa Fiorentino
Louda Larrain
Margo Petitti
Megan Isaacs Jewelry
Molly Rose Post
Prima Zaria
Urban Boulder
Species by the Thousand
Unk & Wil
Very Cool Jewels

The highlight of the evening was the opportunity to meet a very special designer in person, Stella Chang, Founder of Prima Zaria, a line of amazing handbags with not only beautiful design, but amazing attention to detail. Look for an upcoming collaboration here in June! Stella and her team were incredibly approachable, and her love for what she does truly shines through.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  An Amazing win to report! I WON the huge Bridal Beauty Blow Out Giveaway on Just Married with Coupons & SweepTight! I have to admit I almost fell out of my chair when I got the email notifying me that I won. The prize haul is so massive, they actually sent me a spreadsheet inventory list! Wow!!! Jennifer and Dawn, thanks you didn't Just make my day, you made my week!

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).

Vote Needed!

I am a finalist in Mom Central Consulting's 'Grow Your Personal Brand' Grant Program. I would love your vote, but I would also love for you to read my entry. My essay is entitled 'Project Chrysalis'. A project, which many of you know has already begun. The essay questions I was asked to answer really made me think, about my 'brand' and most importantly about my goals both personally and professionally. I hope reading my entry brings you inspiration! This is a DAILY, 1 click, no registration required vote request. You can vote by pressing the image below:

FTC Disclosure: I was not asked to write about Mom Central's Grant Program, nor does writing about it improve my chances. I feel the message they are sending by supporting bloggers efforts to grow their brand is an important and powerful one!' I was also not asked to write about the VLANY Trunk Show or the brands featured, I like to share events I attend with my readers! I also was not asked to share about my win, it was too fab not to!


  1. Congratulations! What a great week! :)

  2. @Patty Busy and Blessed, definitely a great combo!
