Blogher11 Recap: Day One & Two

Yesterday I returned home after my weekend in San Diego and LA (yup LA was not part of the original plan). Blogher was kind of awesome. I came home with more swag then I thought was possible, a new-found excitement in blogging and an unexpected best friend.

I arrived in San Diego Thursday morning and my friend Annie (Confessions of a Navy Wife) picked me up at the airport. Annie lives in San Diego but we made a staycation out of the weekend. We got a room at the Gas Lamp Marriot, and our room overlooked the ball park and had a cool roof top bar, where you could watch the baseball games from.
We started off our weekend by exploring Down Town San Diego and stopped for Happy Hour at La Puerta, before heading to the iFabbo Blogher Party.

At the iFabbo party we received array of complimentary beauty treatments.IMG_6146
I enjoyed a facial by Dermelogica, a hair-do by the folks at Robert Cromeans, and I had my nails Shellaced. We also recieved goody bags from all the fabulous companies involved.
Big thanks to Sinead and BeautiSol!!
It was an awesome night, and it was the night we first met our new best friend Kimmi of Plastic Diaries.
We were pretty much inseparable once we met.
We back up the next morning for the Newbie Breakfast and got serious some of the day...
But mostly we just got silly...
