The week before last, I was invited to Dickinson's suite at MSG to watch the BNP Paribas Showdown that included one of the William's sister's playing in the tournament. What a great way to watch tennis from the comfort of being indoors and in a full stocked suite. As much as I loved the game, it was great to mingle with various beauty bloggers such as Jeannine Morris of Beauty Sweet Spot. I find that sometimes the events are one of the best ways to keep in touch with everyone to find out what they are up to and to make plans later on whether it's to get coffee, grab drinks or to get something to eat.
Although I was much later than I wanted to be, I was so happy to have the chance to speak with Katya Meyers about her work with the Women's Sport Foundation and the Tone Up Challenge. Billy Jean King started the Women's Sport Foundation which really looks to creating positive reinforcing of women's health and beauty. It's nice to have the opportunity to hear initiatives that support women to have a great beauty regimen and to be healthy as opposed to those that speak to being a certain size which creates a sense of overwhelming emotions. Talking with Katya, I learned that she would be on a morning show the next day to talk about The Tone Up Challenge - exercising to be fit.
I was also able to talk with the Creative Director of Dickinson. This company has been in existence since the 1800's, is family owned and survives based on the word of mouth! Sad to say, I had only become aware of the products a week in advance; however, I was pleased to see that they used Witch Hazel which is an element that is extremely beneficial to the skin as it fights acne, blemishes and other ailments that don't work for your skin. The Towelettes that we were given definitely comes in handy when I need to refresh! I can dab my face, neck and wrists and feel ready to continue visiting showrooms. I can only imagine how essential this will be when the weather gets extremely warm! Take some time to check out their full product line!
