Support Philanthropic Events

Monday always comes to fast, especially when you partied a little to hard over the weekend. Yep. I danced for hours. In heels. Ouch. Yep. I'm old.

I went to my second Red Event which is put on by a philanthropic group called the Hangar Aces. It supports theater in my community. It is a great time where you get to wear your best red attire.

It was a lot of fun and reminds me why it's so important to support worthy causes and build networking skills.  Working in a philanthropic position myself now has shown me the importance of the work.

We survive on events for the community and building relationships with local businesses. And unlike what some people believe there really are some not for profits out there that solely survive on donations.

They even try to make it fun. Ya know with dance parties and wine. Yep. Those are the kinds of parties I love. Ones where I'm having fun AND supporting a good cause.

Not that summer is quickly approaching my schedule is pretty packed with events I am helping put on, so take a look around your community. See what's going on and get out there and support while having a blast!

Do you support non-profits? What kind of events do you attend?

Why I attend events: a #TBT post

It's that time again! I am going to feature a blog post from my previous blog as a #tbt. Last week I featured a blog writing inspiration post, which you can recap here. This week I want to feature a post about why I attend events. They are so much fun, especially if they are free. This one happened to be free and had a lot of fun goodies!

Events will do your skin good..

A couple of weekends ago I was very fortunate to be able to attend Real Simple Magazine's Beauty and Balance Weekend. (I am love with their magazine, btw). It was a weekend in NYC geared towards woman and simple pampering. I was elated to be able to go and get a facial courtesy of Amore Pacific and a beauty makeover courtesy of Benefit Cosmetics. There were many mini complimentary services (beauty makeovers, facials, manicures, fitness classes, cooking demos, and more!) offered over 2 wonderful days.

One of the things I took out of this weekend into my everyday life is a moisture bound hydration spray from Amore Pacific. It was a deluxe size sample in the awesome goodie bags that were handed out. I have been using this mist every morning to wake myself up. It hydrates my skin without drying it out. It also doesn't irritate or clog my pores. It is a very light mist that you spray with a misting pump all over your face. It feels super refreshing and it wakes up my skin instantly in the morning.
It is uniquely formulated with pure stabilized bamboo sap in lieu of distilled water. It provides immediate and long lasting hydration as it veils the skin in a delicate mist of mineral rich moisture holding botanical agents. This product is also dermatologist tested. They do not test on animals.

It does not contain any:
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petro-Chemicals
- Phthalates
If you need a quick pick me up this would be the stuff to try. It is a little pricey at $35 for a 2.7oz bottle, but so far I would purchase a full size bottle of this because I love how it makes my skin feel. Check it out if you are looking for a good skin pick me up! AmorePacific

Now bringing my thoughts back around.. Always attend free events in your area! If it interests you go. You never know what kind of knowledge you will walk out of there with. You will also most likely walk out with free stuff too. I really enjoyed my weekend in NYC with Real Simple and am always on the lookout for other events where I can go network and meet new people. Mingling at these types of events are a great way to learn about other events and opportunities. So gather up some friends and head out to an event near you! You never know what lies ahead! 

I hope you enjoyed this past post! That was a great day for me and my friends. So glad I had the opportunity to attend and write about it! Before I am done rambling on here I wanted to take a moment to gush about how much I LOVE my new layout and design! What do you all think? Lemme know if the comments!

Make it a good Thursday everyone! Treat yo self to something great! <3
