Lucky FABB West ~ Day 1

As promised, I am sharing with you my personal photo diary from my amazing trip to California last week!  Every year, I feel like FABB goes by so quickly and this was no exception.  I had the greatest time hanging out with Jenn, seeing old friends (like Tina, who I commiserated with over the joys & challenges of raising a son) and meeting other bloggers in real life for the first time (like Devon, Shauna, Jamie, AudreyMara + so many more).  I won't be posting a full recap of the content shared during the panels & breakout sessions, but if you're a blogger who is interested in hearing more, feel free to email me & I'd be happy to share!  Here are some photos from the first day:

An empty stage awaits the first set of panelists
Blogging BFF's ~ I wore a NY&Co eyelet dress (on sale now!), J. Crew necklace & my favorite hot pink heels)
This was just one of the many gorgeous displays inside the SLS Beverly Hills Hotel
My favorite discussion by far with bloggers Emily & Geri
Bloggers mingling at the cocktail party after the conference
We got to sample Drew Barrymore's new beauty line, Flower Beauty (trust me, you will want everything - available now at WalMart!)
The gorgeous Drew posed with Lucky editor-in-chief, Brandon Holley & Lucky SVP, Gillian Gorman-Round
Drew even served her own wine at the event (and it was delicious!)
The stunning Julianne Hough giving an interview during the party
Stay tuned for more pictures from day 2 + later this week I'll be doing a massive giveaway from the Lucky FABB gift bag - you won't want to miss it!
