Last night, I celebrated an anniversary of sorts. About a year ago, I went to my first Lippe Taylor event for Clearasil at Bowlmor Lanes. Not only was I introduced to how a product that I grew up with had taken steps to being something that I should be using now at the ripe age of 30 but I was introduced to a group of girls that I can call friends! Now I'm not saying that I don't love the PR firms that I work with but the LT team is definitely a favorite and as I headed over to Chelsea Piers Sky Rink, I expected nothing less of an amazing night!
Keren (our very own Life Balance Editor), came with me as we were both going to learn about Shaklee, a company that creates supplements that are organic for your body and that the US Snowboard and US Ski team use to ensure that they have their daily nutrients! In case you're wondering, the clip above included members of the Lippe Taylor team in addition to members of the US Ski and Snowboard teams. They will not find out until the beginning of next year if they made it to the Olympic team! So we very well could have been talking with people that will be on the team.
I loved being able to chat with Michelle Roark who is not only won the World Cup Championship in the 2006 Olympics but she is a Chemical Engineer for her own perfume line, Phi-nomenal (there will be more on her line in a future beauty post on Thurs). She was super spunky and listening to her you really understood what it was like to be a vegetarian and traveling to countries where they eat a lot of meat. Michelle was excited that she was able to have a product that would nourish her and allow her to be at her top performance.
Now Shaklee has had a 30 year relationship with the US Ski team and last night they introduced chews that you can eat to give you a burst of energy. These lemon lime pieces gave lots of energy while giving you a boost! This boost came in handy when we all played Wii's new ski game and I'm happy to report that Keren took the bronze and also a signed Wii by various members on the team! Even if you're not an Olympian hopeful, Shaklee has a large book of supplements that help you in your everyday life. Many of you remember from my previous posts about Glowelle and Functionalab, that I'm on a quest to find the perfect tablets that are perfect for my lifestyle. One of the items that I'm eager to try is the Vitalizer + Iron. I definitely need more Iron and this is geared towards women, look out for a future post where I will share with you how I'm doing and I will also cover other items as well! What a great event and way to get introduced to this brand that's new to me!
