Wow! Cosmoprof/Beauty Week is AWESOME so far!
Landed here in Vegas, after some drama (I left my wallet on the airplane.... dummy!), I got all situated and headed down to the pool area for lunch. Wow, the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is such an awesome place! Everywhere I turn, I bump into someone I know from the industry... so cool!

After going back to my room to doll myself up a bit, I headed down to the VIP Get Together party, where I ran into some of my closest pals in the industry. Love when everyone's in the same place at the same time! <3 Got some great pics with Modern BFFs.

I also got the chance to stop by the Beacon kick-off party. Students from across the country have gathered here for networking opportunities and to learn ways to become successful salon professionals... love that!

After that, I headed up to the Get Together party where I ran into some of my Pivot Point peeps and also some pretty fun celebs! Gotta love Michael O'Rourke! I also got the chance to meet, in person, Modern's fav photographer Roberto Ligresti and fav make-up artist David Maderich--along with Sherri Jessee... no way!

Ahh! This is so much fun!!!! I cannot even wait until tomorrow, it's going to be AWESOME! A full day of showfloor... and then a full night of NAHA.. Woo hoo!! Not to mention a hair appointment at the Kim Vo Salon in the Mirage.... life is good : )
