Stilettos and Sponsors (#SMLatinas)

You heard me tell you all about BlogHer, about how I do some of my follow ups and about my favorite party last week.

I was going through emails, Tweets and pictures today and thought I should put up a note about the Kick Off Your Heels party. Don’t worry, I know you’re all busy with the Manic Mondays and whatnot.

I wanted to let you know that sometimes parties like that (and parties that you might attend) come together because there’s one person with an awesome idea. That would be the fantabulous Ms. Latina herself, Migdalia.  Following that, though, it takes sponsors who not only believe the wild and crazy ideas that you have but are just as excited (if not more).  So I could not let the wave of conferencing pass without sending my deepest thanks to some pretty awesome people.

If you saw my pretty sexy leg with the cool Stiletto tattoo, that was all Glitter Tattoo NY. I’m kinda mad they’re not in my town although I suspect Corena would get sick of me calling and requesting special stencils for random use. Like for bachelorette parties or how cute would it be for a babyshower?! The possibilities are endless!

During the course of BlogHer, if you saw me and thought: how is she still wearing lipstick?! Well, that’s because I was sporting some Outlast All-Day Lipcolor my friends!  I will say it has passed most tests though I am still looking for a subject to try out the whole “kiss proof” claim (wink wink). CoverGirl hooked me up and I am glad they did because I may or may not have left my lipstick bag in the hot car back in Florida when I flew out that morning.

And when I heard that Avocados From Mexico would be sponsoring this party I just knew I was going to walk out of there either sick from eating too many aguacates or hunched over as I carried a sack of them back to the hotel room. Alas, neither of those things happened. But, I found another site to supplement my Avocado Obsession where I can get recipes, coupons and more AND, I got these babies:

I have considered wearing them since I got back but I’m afraid my child will attempt to eat my ears as I’ve recently discovered (thanks to my unselfish sharing) that the frog princess loves avocados as much as I do. So much so that tonight she had the nerve to ask me for aguacate at bedtime. I’m sure there’s a book in there somewhere!

All in all, I am so happy that I was able to attend this party. But, along with feeling all the good feelings towards my fellow Bloggy friends, I was reminded about the relationships that we maintain with brands.

I am thankful to these brands along with HP and Sweet Pickles. And not just because of the goodies in the bags but because of the opportunity to develop long-term relationships both with other bloggers and with them.

Disclosure: As a member of the Stiletto Media Blogger Network, my trip to the VIP Latina Blogger Event was sponsored, but as always, my thoughts and words are my own.
