Last Thursday night, I attended Give & Glam, a semi-annual event that combines fashion with charitable giving. The June 7 event was held at the NYLO hotel in Warwick. I had not been to NYLO before, so I was anxious to check it out.
When we arrived, we got some nice swag bags and got to walk the “pink” carpet. Sam and I had our pictures taken and then we headed in to find other members of our RI Digital Media Women’s group. We had quite the pack! It is always so much fun to meet other bloggers in “real” life.
After getting a drink, I was grabbed by Sara’s Glam Squad to get my make up done and get an airbrush bronze. The last time I had my make up done by someone other than myself was my wedding day, and I have never had an airbrush bronze or tan for that matter! As I was finishing my make up session, the fashion show started.
It took about ten minutes, and presto change-o, I was glam mommy! It was funny to be dressed up and have my make up done. So much of the time, I feel like I throw on clothes and leave the house without giving more than a quick glance in the mirror. I love that the event supported Hasbro Children’s Hospital, a wonderful institution in Providence.
I can’t wait for the next one in October at Belle Mer in Newport. If you are local, mark your calendars!
