Meet and Tweet May 16th, 2013 Fitness

20 May

The bus driver pulled my change for my bus ticket out of her bra…that was the start of my wonderful adventure into NYC. I was on my way to Fitness Magazine’s Meet and Tweet, an event/seminar open to health and fitness bloggers. As my trip began, I was anticipating what will happen and what will I learn. I was prepared with my favorite workout gear and super storage Lululemon bag. Of course I had my notebook and pen ready to take some notes!

The event was held at The Mercedes Club, a very posh apartment/gym. At that point I was directed to a large table to get my pass and new water bottle. It’s was from Camelbak, it has a filter attached which is super cool. I will surely make use of this on hikes and travels throughout the day.

All other fellow blogger women were set up outside on a huge open deck chomping on a super yummy breakfast of pressed juice bottles, muffins, eggs and avocados. The seminar began with Stila beauty Pro Sarah Lucero.  This beautiful blond bombshell explained the in’s and out’s of summer time make-up must haves.

Sarah philosophy Looking good and feeling good. Try a Soul Cycle class and go hiking to hear nature and appreciate the beauty of nature.
