{#Wordless Wednesday} I met @AquafreshUS #CaptAquafresh at #BlogHer15 and learned #whatsSAP #SK

The BlogHer 2015 conference was a whirlwind, I bit off more than I could possibly chew, won a few contests on the expo hall floor, pet doggies from Rover and ASPCA (see more about one of the cuties I featured from the ASPCA HERE), had more than enough to eat (snacked my butt off with treats in the expo hall between dunkin donuts and baskin robbins) and got to meet the team behind Shea Mouisture, where their amaze balls hair stylist CUT my hair on the tradeshow floor and their makeup artist gave me life. It was a heck of ride, like always and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I figure the best way to recap a conference as large as BlogHer is in 'small chunks' so I thought I'd ease you guys in with a fun (Not Entirely) Wordless Wednesday Photo! - C'mon me go totally Wordless? NAH!

@AquafreshUS #CaptAquafresh #BlogHer15, BlogHer Conference 2015, Captain AquaFresh, AquaFresh Toothpaste
Above: The Team at AquaFresh was offering bloggers a year's supply of their newest toothpaste formulation that offers Sugar Acid Protection (SAP) from flouride to protect teeth from the sugar acids found in everyday foods while of course still delivering that fresh taste feeling from brushing. (There may have been a 'blogger brush those teeth!' theme going on, but that's fodder for an entirely different post! Let's just say I have some more toothpaste info to share with you from BlogHer15) 


I am an anti-social introvert, yes I know that is a very odd thing for a social media consultant and lifestyle blogger to say, but I am. I love taking pictures OF things, but I hate being in photos myself. I have always been a bit camera shy, but the one thing that never fails to get me out of my shell is a mascot. I just can't resist taking photos with a Mascot, it's my obsession and it's one of the things I look most forward to at Conferences and TradeShows! (I have a thing for animal prints right now, and in case you are wondering the dress I am wearing is by Calvin Klein, the amber bracelet was a find on my last trip to Mexico, and the necklace I am wearing is by Satya Jewelry!

Team AquaFresh was so confident in their newest toothpaste's ability to protect your teeth that they were actually also giving away fresh baked sugar cookies from Amanda of @iambakertweets at their booth in addition to the photo opp with Captain AquaFresh.

Notice my clever use of borders, did you notice the red, white and blue I used to rep the colors on the stripes of the toothpaste? (Virtual High Five right!)

I attended BlogHer 2015 as a Brand Ambassador for Vitabath, and to celebrate the partnership I hosted a giveaway earlier this year, and I'm sure it won't be my last, so stay tuned for more fun giveaways coming soon. They actually recently shared one of their newest scents, Orchid Intrigue at a Blogger Brunch and I hope to be able to partner with them to do something fun for you guys as well. So shout outs both to AquaFresh for the fun mascot opp and year of free toothpaste and to Vitabath for sending me to BlogHer this year!

Bloggers, as always share the link to your Wordless Wednesday photos as a comment on this post and we will go visit your photos this week as well! (NO GIVEAWAY LINKIES PLEASE!)

Do the sugar acids in your favorite sweet treat cause tooth sensitivity? If so, which foods are you most sensitive to?

Featured #Handbag in the Spotlight + pick your prize with a $100 Gift Card to @wilsonsleather via @Ascending1

As a lifelong New Yorker, my wardrobe is filled with Black, and after the year I had last year I determined that this year as soon as I was back on my feet and something closer to a normal weight I would start ridding myself of a wardrobe that sadly resembles someone in mourning, and change over to brighter colors! I started that earlier this year when I embraced the Pantone color of the year, Green, and got a great jacket from Wilsons Leather and paired it with my Linea Pelle Dylan handbag in Kelly Green. (You can check out how I styled Green this year HERE)

With Spring finally here in New York City, I wanted to continue with my 'brighter' new me, and I fell in love, love, love, with the Black Rivet Blazer in the color 'Papaya' and the Black Rivet In & Out Satchel in 'Orange' from Wilsons Leather!

First I'll show you the pro-shot of each one:

Here are some shots of me wearing them:

More on where I'm hamming it up at for my Birthday in this picture later during the week (Wordless Wednesday maybe)!

Jacket: Black Rivet Blazer, HandBag: Black Rivet Satchel from Wilsons Leather, Shirt by Calvin Klein, JeansSignature Curvy Skinny by Levi Strauss & Co

My Take:

I have received tons of compliments on both the Blazer and the Handbag, and I have a feeling I will be living in these for Spring! The color is just so vibrant and fun, I can take my black wardrobe and give it a pop of color with bright accessories! And when a spill on my jacket occured, a quick dab with club soda took it right off with no staining or fading. The bag has a stripes lining on the inside, that makes it a super fun choice going straight into summer, and makes it easy to see on the inside when you are in lowlight and need to find something fast. It has great organizational compartments, my sunglasses are super-oversized and my phone is a pretty thick one, and both fit with ease in their side compartments, which is rare for me to find in most handbags. I find myself wanting to reach for these everyday now!

Win It:

When I told my friends at Wilsons Leather it was my birthday but YOU get the gifts, they were happy to join in the fun! And while I LOVE my picks, you may want something totally different, a different color, or silhouette of bag and you can actually pick your own bag instead of my choice! So not only is it my birthday month and YOU get the gifts, you also get to pick your gift, isn't that cool?

One lucky butterfly will win $100 to Wilsons Leather to pick their own prize, and gentlemen remember, Wilsons Leather is NOT just for Ladies, they sell great stuff for Men too!
