Skinny Cow Dirty Dancing Event

Skinny Cow Dirty Dancing Event

Lucky for me this years Skinny Cow Event in Southern California landed not only as the finale but on my birthday. So I was totally stoked. As luck would have it, my friend had her baby, or at least thought she was going to (she ended up having it 2 days later. ) My boyfriend had to work so things got slightly messed up. I was determined to have a good time. It took us 2 and a half hours in traffic to get to the event.

We got there and saw the Pink carpet, very cute and all the people excited and waiting to get in. My boyfriend and I got in line and my family already inside waiting on us to arrive, sent my mother out to meet us. My grandmother doesn't usually come out to events and she decided to come along it made me so happy,. She still is talking about it now a week later.

The evening started with a box that had askinny cow candy in it, a water and a mocha truffle ice cream bar. I could write a book on how tasty the heavenly crisps are. My boyfriend ate the mocha truffke ice cream bar and he like it, even though he isnt a big mocha fan. Because he loves me he handed me over his heavenly crisp bar, and i was sweet enough to share a bite with him lol. Then the lights dropped a bt and Jennfer Grey came out on stage and talked about the film. It was fun listening to her talk about her experience and time in the film.

Funny story, I had never seen Dirty Dancing, though I've seen like every other dance film out there. Listening to my grandmother laugh and enjoy herself was so great, the girls next to us had gone to the New York premiere as well and were just as excited that night.

The film ended and we went over to the after party, after we took some pictures with y boyfriend and family.The party was jumping, they had a DJ,ice cream, drinks and appetizers. The best appetizer of the night was pulled pork on sweet potato paste, literallly one of the tastiest things I've had in a long time. They had a instagram printer, you posted pics on instagram with the tag #skinnydancing and a little printer printed out your pictures polaroid style. I was enthralled by it and couldn;t get enough of them I love pictures, Im in love with polaroid cameras.

My boyfriend and I stayed until they kicked us out, we had an amazing time. We each got a goodie bag. I will be putting up a giveaway this week for your chance at a shirt and a poster from the event. So be on the lookout.

My absense and the story

The last few weeks have really been full of ups and downs,from bad medical news, to an amazing birrthday and a few celebrity events and having an unexpected guest crashing in my place, having a hard time of her own. So I haven't been at my computer much and I'm going to be working out of town for the next month but i will have my laptop, internet and I've already taken lots of pictures to keep caught up.

So most of the good stuff will have there own posts coming up shortly this post is to talk about my absence and why.

On july 17, my left eye became sensitive to light, this has happened before and I put on an eye patch to help and figured like normal I would be fine in a couple of days. A couple of days passed and I went to get my permit. (I know I don't have my license, I have pretty bad eye sight and everytime i get my permit I never follow through.) When she asked me oto cover my right eye for the eye exam, for the first time I realized I had lost sight in my left eye.

So my boyfriend took off work and we set up doctor appointments, lots of time , money and misdiagnoses later, on August 16th the opthomalogist told me the prognosis was very grim, being something onset from birth, my eye will probably never get better. I may from time to time be able to see a little bit but for the most part , I'm blind in that eye.

Now as life shattering as this has been for me, the devastating thing that has made some days hard is though i'm blind I'm not legally blind or completely blind, just enough to not have sight. I have to wear an eyepatch the rest of my life. I get to endure stares and questions everywhere I go, which I know in time won't phase me as much.

The gorgeous male bartender at an event I went to recently told me to wear and own it and to be confident, this is going to be a battle for me, so if I don't write from time to time or disappear, know that it is temporary and I am just tryng to process and deal with information.

But don't worry, I'm still wearing makeup.

More Thrift Store Gems

So I have this thrift store spending problem. If I see a good deal I have to pick it up. So I found a Zac Posen for Target dress that looks like a pin up girl style, my heart fluttered and at $3 how could I pass it up.

Then my lucky find of the week was a pair of boots. I just broke my favorite pair while at Comic Con on sunday. So Yippee.

Tell me what have you found this week?

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration spf 30 review

Now that summer is in full swing and temperatures are rising the desire to be outside in the sun is there for most people. You know if you are going to be out playing in the sun you need to be protecting yourself. That's why when I got my Summer Beauty Voxbox and opened it, I was pleased to see that I had gotten some Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Broad Spectrum Spf 30 suncreen. I love the Hawaiian Tropic brand in general, I have maybe 25 bottles of it in my room right now.. lol.

The moisturizer in it helps to keep my skin looking soft even after I have been in the sun all day. The sunscreen doesn't feel too greasy, that is one of my favorite things about the product. The moisturizing ribbons keep your skin looking soft and the sunscreen is broad speectrum for both UVA and UVB rays. It moisturizes for 12 hours.

Also available in SPF 12, 30, 50!

You can find Hawaiian Tropic products at most major retailers. Suggested retail price: $8.99 for a 6oz bottle

I recieved this product in a Summer Vox Box from Influenster. But the opinions are completely my own.
