I was invited to a Beauty Summit put on by Total Beauty. It included stops at several established beauty movers and shakers. Here are some of my pictures from Day 1 of the two day summit.

Joel Warren was kind enough to take a picture with me in my “before” hair. Ha!

Mid-blowout at the Warren Tricomi Salon
Thibault is working that dryer so fast to make my hair pretty, you can’t even keep up with it.
My blowout from the Warren Tricomi Salon
This is all Thibault’s magic here, and it looks really damn good, if I do say so myself. :)
Here is the lovely Amber, from Beauty Junkies Unite, showing of her beautiful blowout from the Warren Tricomi Salon.

Beauty at The Plaza
Downstairs of The Plaza Hotel is an area with beauty vendors of known and unheard (to me) brands.
Sponge Skincare originated in Greece and is based around olive oil & organically grown herbs. I had never heard of this brand before, but it has been researched for 30 years, starting as benefit to pregnant ladies.
Getting a touch-up
Getting my makeup touched up by a Smashbox Cosmetics makeup artist at The Plaza Hotel.
Some of the Total Beauty members take a bit of a break on the big seating before we left The Plaza.
Dinner at Tao
After a busy day, we all got to go to Tao for dinner.
It’s all mine, Baby!
Be careful when you choose to go to the potty, because you might come back to a Tiffany’s necklace at your seat.
Meredith, Daily Dose of Coffee, was celebrating a birthday while in NYC, so the nice waiter at Tao, brought her a birthday surprise!
Gawd, this was good
I still don’t know exactly what this was, maybe a Chocolate Spring Roll?, I dunno, but gawd, it was insanely stupid good. Chewy on the outside and so creamy good on the inside. And, hell, I don’t even *like* sweets and I was all over this. Just sayin’….
After dinner chatting

Kitiya and I
The lovely Kitiya, from Mischo Beauty, decided she didn’t want her picture taken. That wasn’t going to stop me. (*besides, check out that rockin’ mani!)

Once again, Ms. Roselyn, from tempt’d, is grilling the movers and the shakers. This time it is Emrah Kovacoglu, Total Beauty CEO.
After dinner snapshot
Yep, I’m embarassed to say that I don’t know the names of the two lovely ladies to my left in this picture, but the picture was taken by Emrah, himself. The lovely ladies to my right are Kitiya, from Mischo Beauty, and Roselyn, from temptd.
