Lucky FABB L.A.

Lucky FABB L.A.

Hey there, friends!  I’m Amy from One Artsy Mama, and I just recently had the “fabb-ulous” experience of traveling to L.A. with Lucky Magazine to attend their semi-annual Fashion and Beauty Blogger Conference, Lucky FABB.


I thought that for this month’s fashion post here at LCI, I’d share the highlights of that experience with you!

#5: Visiting a dry bar for the first time and being pampered!
My first activity after landing in L.A. and checking in at the fabulous SLS Beverly Hills Hotel was an event hosted by Wendy’s at the Blow Me Away Dry Bar on West 3rd St.  We had an opportunity to sample the new Asian Cashew Chicken Salad, as well as ordering from the “Styling Menu.”   Before I talk about my style though, can I just say that the artsy mama in me did a little happy dance when I saw the fun decor…they had mason jars filled with fresh ingredients found in the salad!  Love!


I ordered the “Classic,” a simple blowout with long, loose curls.  It was so relaxing just having someone wash and dry my hair, and it was especially refreshing after just spending six hours on a plane!  I loved the finished look…and I kind of wish I could have brought my stylist home with me so she could do that for me every day.


#4: Rooming with Katie, a fellow “New Voice of Beauty”
Everything’s better with a friend, especially when you’re literally traveling to the other side of the country by yourself!  I had the opportunity to room with Katie, which was an absolute blast!  We ate pizza in our pajamas {even though they delivered the wrong kind!}, chased down the people serving hors d’oeuvres, and ordered chocolate mousse cups with pop rocks on top…because we were still on East Coast time and always hungry!  I also relied on Katie to help me make last minute outfit/shoe/accessory/makeup decisions and to tell me if I had too much makeup on since our bathroom had basically no lights in it.  The conference was awesome by itself, but sharing it with Katie made the whole time so much fun!


#3: Having my name in the program!
Friday morning, when we checked in we all got folders with information about the schedule, the speakers, the brand sponsors, and more.  I knew the New Voices of Beauty were going to be a part of the Networking Brunch, but I still did a double take when I saw my name right there in the program.  


#2: Participating in the Networking Brunch and sharing with other bloggers about how awesome it is to partner with Lucky Magazine and P&G Beauty!
The brunch on Saturday morning was such a fun time; not only were they playing our video for the other bloggers to see, we got a chance to interact with people one on one and talk with them about our experience as New Voices of Beauty this year.  We got to share about what it’s like working with a big national brand like P&G and share our tips for making sponsored posts resonate with readers and be interesting instead of just feeling like commercials.


There was also a surprise interview with a video team from Lucky, where we got to talk about how we felt being chosen to represent P&G, why the brand is a good fit for our readers, and what the experience was like being a “celebrity” at FABB West.  


#1: Meeting Eva Chen!!
By far, my absolute favorite moment was when Jamie, our amazing P&G contact introduced the four of us to the gorgeous, stylish, amazing Eva Chen.  If you don’t know, Eva is the editor-in-chief of Lucky magazine, and is the most approachable editor ever.  She’s very active on social media {you can follow her on twitter and Instagram at @evachen212} and actually cares about connecting with Lucky readers.  As down to earth as she is, though, I was still incredibly intimidated to meet her because she’s so glamorous and awesome!  She was very gracious, shaking each of our hands and congratulating us on our achievement.  Huge thanks to Jamie for the introduction and for pretty much making my year!  


I also have to say a huge thank you to any of you who voted for me back in November and December when the New Voices of Beauty Contest was going on!  It’s because of you that I had this opportunity in the first place, so thanks from the bottom of my artsy heart!  Till next month…
