The euphoria is slowing abating and Vegas is becoming a memory but in a nutshell Blogalicious 2012 ROCKED - hard!!!
It was so awesome, so well organized and executed, I'm still amazed. I'd never even heard of Blogalicious until my bestie Teri mentioned it to me because the 2011 conference was held in DC. Up until I got to Vegas I still had no idea what to expect. Justice Fergie and crew had a mission and oh my was it accomplished! The sponsored parties never failed to impress from the Fashionista tea party hosted by Ross Dress for Less (where I donned my very first dress hat, a lime green one with a black band & flower), to the American Cancer Society's bowl for more birthdays benefit, to the McDonald's poolside mixer where the only thing cheezy were the burgers not to mention vthe Gain Fresh party in Cherry nightclub starring none other than the human-beat box Doug E Fresh, himself. (In case you're wondering, yes Doug E's STILL got it and it looks good!) Let's not forget our trip to da Strip where we jammed to two phenomenal females djs at clubs Tao and Lavo, Blogalicious 2012 was non-stop enjoyment. Even the live water nymphs (with their strategically placed flower petals) lounging in tubs at the entrance to Tao couldn't dampen my spirits. This was Vegas and I pretty much expected just about anything. Even our meals were taken care of - very, very well indeed and the libations were potent and liberally offered. I haven't drank that much in just 4 days in my entire life! And everywhere but everywhere we went there was a swag bag of some kind - it was like Christmas - I could get used to this.
|so much swag|
Oh, if there was one thing, I'd change about it besides making it a week long it would have been that like an episode of Oprah where everybody would get an iPad 3 instead of just the two lucky winners.... a gurl can dream, can't she? Maybe next year at Blogalicious 2013.
