I mentioned in my Year One blog about the Emmy Style Event that we participated in. I've had a few questions about how we participated in such an event, so I thought I would expand with a quick blog about it.
When I first started this business, I had several sleepless nights and was brainstorming about how to market my new "baby" to the world. So I Googled Unique Marketing Ideas and after sorting though a ton of stuff that just wasn't very unique, I came across the idea of Gifting Suites. I looked up a few companies that special in celebrity gifting suites and found Secret Room Events. They responded quickly to my initial email and after a few emails back and forth, I found myself signing the contract to participate. Most of the gifting suites are associated with a charity and this one was sponsoring The Tigerlily Foundation, which raises money for Breast Cancer Research. I knew that this was the right one for me, as my own mother had passed away from complications of breast cancer.
My son, Josh flew out with me to help with the event, and my friend Melissa came up from San Diego to help out too. It was held at the beautiful SLS Beverly Hills Hotel. It was an experience that I will never forget. I even met Deidre Hall, from Day's of Our Lives!
