For the last nine months, I have been working diligently with my friend and colleague over at The Trend Tribe, putting together a social media influencers weekend that promises to be an amazing time! It has taken me a few years blogging, building my networks and relationships, dabbling in social media and exploring many options to determine what it is about this Wild West of Social Media that intrigues and challenges me. I was presented with an opportunity to use my talents and dig deep inside for the confidence it takes to make things happen, and I have to say, I did it!

Over the next 36-hours, some of the most amazing women bloggers and social media influencers will be coming from Singapore, San Diego, San Fransisco and Orange County to partake in the inaugural Trend Tribe Influencers weekend. Here are some of the deets:

  • Hotel Accommodations at Aria Las Vegas
  • Progressive Sips + Nibbles party at five of the most desired restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip
  • Shopping + Make-Up Dates at two of the most coveted names in Las Vegas
  • Swag Bags full of the most impressive and trend setting products valued at over $800 per bag
  • A Girl’s Night Out that will be talked about for years!
  • Rehab at the Spa to wrap things up

This is an exclusive, invite only event extended to those in The Trend Tribe, and meet the stringent expectations of blog niche, demographic and audience. If you can’t tell already, I am really excited and would love to have you follow me on Twitter and Instagram…just use #TTTVegas to discover who are all the brands and businesses joining us this year.

Getting primped and prime for such an event calls for a little bit of relaxing, and that’s exactly what I booked for myself this week. I was invited by the J.W. Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa to visit their Aquae Sulis Spa and indulge in two of their seasonal treatments: the Pretty in Pink Facial and the Orange Spice Pumpkin and Polish. It was the perfect way to settle my mind and focus on what I needed to get done. The Aquae Sulis Spa has been one of my favorite off the Strip places to take visitors, or just enjoy as a local since it opened several years ago. With a 30% daily discount for locals on any spa treatment, any day of the week, why wouldn’t it be on your favorites list?

The Pretty in Pink facial is a customized facial tailored by your aesthetician to meet the needs of your skin. Mine was craving a bit of a peel and some hydration, so the aesthetician added the mask from the Porefection Pumpkin Facial to mine. Loved it! Pumpkin is a natural enzyme and antioxidant that eats up all the free radicals sitting on top of your skin, and also acts a catalyst to allow better absorption of moisturizers. The warm, tingly sensation told me right away that it was working, and it smelled delicious, most likely due to it being an all natural and organic product from the Hylunia skin care line. My face felt wonderful and my make-up applied evenly and smoothly that night. Even better, 10% of the proceeds from your Pretty in Pink Facial benefits the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Foundation during the month of October.

My spa day did not end there. Shortly after lounging around the outdoor, co-ed Hydro-circuit pool on an a rare overcast day in Las Vegas, I was whisked away into the salon to experience the Orange Spice Pumpkin and Polish. FarmHouse Fresh products, an eco-friendly and organic based line, were utilized, and it seemed as though I could take a spoon and take a bite of the Honeysuckle Orange Custard Lotion and Bourban Bubbler Scrub. All this followed by another warming pumpkin mask for my feet and an arm and hand massage while I waited for my mask to set…ah, what more could I ask for? A nice deep purple polish by yet, another Earth-loving line, Jessica, for my toes, and I’m on my RockStarMom merry little way to pick up the entourage.

If these treatments sound delectable for Fall, head on over to the J.W. Marriott Las Vegas and Aquae Sulis Spa before the end of October. Trust me, if you love pumpkin, Fall flavors and spice, this little solace in the middle of your busy life is worth it…YOU are worth it!

Now I am off to enjoy the fruits of my labor! Crossing all fingers and pretty pedicured toes that my Trend Tribe Influencers Weekend goes off without a hitch!
