GLAM + Ambition = Glambition™ Check out the highlights from Beauty Night Out 2018 #GBNO18 #KnockingDownWallsInHeels hosted by @Google

Above: I rarely a start a post with a 'see what I did there?' but I cropped out the person I took this picture for just because I loved the idea of her silhouette juxtaposed against the event signage. I have been really into getting more creative with my Photography. This was shot with a Canon Rebel, I have since switched to Nikon.

In 2016 during Women's History Month I got to attend a very special event called "GLAMBITION Women Think Big". An event intended to help empower and inspire and explore the many roles we play both in life and in business. (Linking you to it just in case you missed it.)

This year Glambition returned to NYC in a different venue, Google's NYC offices in Chelsea. On the day of this event many marches were being held for the #MeToo movement. I actually did not know that but discovered it that day when tons of women participating in the rally in NYC boarded the MTA Subway Train I was on with their signs in tow. 

I love that Glambition events have aligned with significant dates of importance for women.

If you have a bit of GLAM in you and a ton of Ambition then Glambition™ events are definitely for YOU!

There were panel sessions that helped to empower entrepreneurs - women in business who are doing big things and are willing to share the journey so you can learn from their mistakes and be inspired by their triumps!

Above: Salud Para Todos greeted guests with their Moringa Detox and Wellness Tea which was perfect because it was freezing outside and it tasted great! I also happened to be the lucky winner of their raffle and won a cool gift basket full of products that fit in perfectly with my personal and blog focus phrase for 2018 'self-care'. So you will see more on this soon, and I hope to partner with them to bring something fun for my butterflies that focuses on self-care. Which is something I have always been saying most of us do NOT get nearly enough of! Take care of your body, it is the engine that drives you daily.

Above: Model Citizen's booth had fun t-shirt swag! They had pretty neat raffles too, I guess I can't win them all, but will post a pic in my tee for a wordless wednesday or on insta, so be sure you are following me there as well.

Above: And with my love of animal prints I spotted this super cute clutch from Faces Beautiful by Gail Sagel across the room! This is so ME! I am an avid travel lover, and I pride myself on being able to anywhere with just ONE carry on and my purse, and that's it. One thing I always like to pack is a clutch so on evenings out or a day just at the hotel I just carry essentials, this clutch is so packable and while it is meant to carry your Faces Beautiful Makeup, you can leave the makeup in the room and use the clutch for an evening out or have this as your makeup travel case. More to come, and they have also been invited to come back and doing something fun. I am also working on an animal print accessories round up and this is definitely going in there as well.

Above: You guys know I am obsessed with Plum Sake (just search my archives - my favorite is Gekkeikan Plum Sake), so when I discovered Plush Vodka - a plum flavored Vodka I was definitely trying it out and the signature cocktails too! They were also invited to do something fun - so stay tuned.

Above: As if Plum Vodka and signature cocktails weren't enough, the fine folks at Bartenura were offering a very nice selection of wines including a very nice Rose and Pinot Grigio!

Above: Dee Rivera, Founder of Dee and CO Group.

Aisha launched and oversees Google’s new Digital Coaches Program to equip and empower women and minority-owned small businesses with digital marketing training across 9 U.S. pilot cities (Atlanta, Austin, Bay Area, Chicago, Detroit, LA, Miami, NYC and Washington DC).

Above: Building Beauty is an Asset Panel. Don't let Social fool you, getting rich via Instagram and Blogging is not happening for everyone, and certainly not as easily or quickly as social makes it look. Whether you made or are still trying to make your first 'insta-millions' taking control of your finances is the best way to be sure you have a comfortable future. How to build assets with a Life Insurance was helmed by the team at New York Life Insurance.

Check out the video coverage of these panels here:


I love supporting women in business and women owned businesses! I love meeting women who are willing to share their journey. No one has an easy rise/ride to the top, it takes hard work and a ton of guts to make it to the top of your industry.

I like how this event came at Entrepreneurship from all sides, the triumphs, hardships and obstacles that other successful female entrepreneurs have faced, and a reminder that getting a grip on all facets of wealth building and equity including being insured, are important foundations to your success.

Follow your gut instincts, and never second guess yourself was one of the greatest takeaways for me.

Discoveries from Girls Gone Glam NYC!

A little Glam time definitely helps to inject some fun into an ordinary day. I got the chance to attend a Girls Gone Glam Beauty Bar event at Bar-Tini Ultra Lounge (@BartiniNYC via twitter) and thought I'd give you a glimpse of what I discovered while I was there!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Vanity Drink - Vanity Drink is the first all natural dietary supplement with anti-aging ingredients!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Vera Moore Cosmetics - Vera Moore Cosmetics can be found at the Look Boutique at your local Duane Reade!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Nail Lounge NYC - Provided the Manicures (I have had a chance to get manicures with Nail Lounge at various events and they are always AWESOME!)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - It Works - It Works are all independent distributors, but I had never heard of their products before, we came home with one of the wraps and once I have used it I will report back with a full product review.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Snob Candy - Snob Candy Boutique sells jewelry, handbags and hats! Not just any jewelry think true 'statement' pieces!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Stella & Dot - Stella & Dot are also run by independent distributors much like It Works, so I'm linking to the Distributor who was actually at the Girl Gone Glam Event that I attended.

Here are some photos of the action:

This is the cocktail menu at Bar-Tini Ultra Lounge for the Girls Gone Glam Beauty Bar Event

Sorry Butterflies the lighting in this area wasn't so great, but this is Snob Candy and I linked to them above so you could check them out for yourselves! Their statement jewelry is EVERYTHING!

The idea of an Anti-Aging Energy Drink is definitely interesting! I would probably need a few cases, LOL!

The colors on this Stella & Dot Statement Necklace are perfect for Spring going into Summer!

Natasha Aybar is a Stella & Dot Distributor who shared some of their latest styles for Spring/Summer

It Works are also independent distributors who were showing off their Wraps (they offer both face and body wraps that tone and tighten)

I have been painfully aware lately that I haven't been taking nearly as much time for myself as I should. I live in the city 'that never sleeps' and oftentimes sleep is what gets neglected when I am in catch up mode. Having the chance to check out pretty jewelry, new makeup and stop and get a manicure was literally just what the Doctor ordered!

When is the last time you took some time just for YOU butterfly?
