F21 Dress Replay in Chicago

Last week, I made my way to Chicago for the Latinos in Social Media National Conference. I was bummed that I couldn’t take any time to see my girls out there (you know who you are).

For the award’s gala, I wore this Forever 21 dress, that you might have seen me wear here. It was such a fun night! I love hanging out with my fellow bloggers! I was nominated for two awards: Best Latin@ Lifestyle Blogger and Best Latin@ Social Networker. I did walk away with the best lifestyle blogger award. What an honor!! Really!! I’m truly blessed. Thank you to EVERYONE who voted for me and helped me win! xoxo

Earlier in the day, I was invited to a very special Mary Kay Glam Suite held in the Vice Presidential Suite at the Intercontinental Hotel. I got my hair blown out and a “day look” makeover. And I even walked away with an awesome Mary Kay gift bag!! Thank you Mercedes from BeChicMag.com for the invite!

Check out their Free Virtual Makeover. It’s pretty cool!

I didn’t get to take many pics of the city. The conference kept me really busy. But here are a few I did get.

The best dessert ever! Oreo cookie ice cream sandwich.

Disclosure: My trip was sponsored and I did receive a complimentary gift bag from Mary Kay. The above is my true and honest opinion.
