I want to tell you about a weekend of beauty events that I am excited to be a part of. Tracey’s Beauty Blitz is coming to Chicago on the weekend of October 25-27, 2013. Tracey Brown, who is putting on the blitz, is the founder and editor-in-Chief of Blinging Beauty, a top beauty blog.
I was chosen to be a VIP Blogger for the events and will be in attendance, the 25-27th. Tickets are available on Eventbrite and if you use my personal promo code brandy (in lower case), you will save 20%!
So, Friday is a must-attend party—it’s a Style Tech Mixer, and you are encouraged to bring your best Instagram and Twitter skills. Rather than a panel of long-winded folks boring us with a formal sit down Q & A, along with Tracey and her Bling Team there will be local experts posing questions, sharing their tips and engaging everyone via Twitter and Instagram.
To win door prizes and a chance to grab a goodie from the Bling Box, you must tweet and post pictures to your Instagram. Tracey and her Bling Team will choose their favorite tweets and Instagram moments during the evening and dole out prizes. It’s all about Cool [Virtual] Chat!
There will be a DJ spinning and bartenders mixing CuratedCocktails. Ever had a Blingtini? How about a Blinging Beauty straight up or on the rocks? Now’s your chance.

Saturday is a hands-on beauty workshop for those of us who need a pick-me-up in the beauty department. Tracey, who has over 35 years in the beauty industry as a trainer, Esthetician and makeup artist will cover three topics in three hours in her Ace Your Face workshop. Hold your breath, it’s going to be fast-paced, hands-on and FUN! She will dissect skin care to the basics and share her tips for looking phenomenal even in your 50s. (Tracey is 56 with not a line in sight). Next it’s all about makeup—your out-the-door in 5 minutes professional face to your date night look.
Here are the deets:
