We saw so many bloggers I knew from past conferences and it was fun to introduce them to Melrose. The keynote breakfast speaker was Gretchen Rubin who is the author of The Happiness Project. Her talk was inspirational and a great way to start the day. Our actions have a lot to do with our own happiness.
We then moved to another room where based on our answers to a questionnaire, Tide gave us a laundry identity. It was very cute and I enjoyed learning about the various products to meet a wide variety of needs. We both had cold water identities.
After that it was on a to lunch where the keynote address was by photographer Penny De Los Santos. The pictures she shared and the stories behind them were very moving. She even shared tips on how to get good pictures.
The afternoon was filled the following sessions:
How to Maintain Beautiful Hair by celebrity hair stylists, Sasha Bruer
Aromatherapy to Comfort and Soothe by Mindy Green
Holistic Skin Wellness by dermatologist, Dr. Jane Khoury
The hair session ended with all attendees getting their own Braun Satin 7 Active Ion brush which was so impressive. It calms the hair down with ions.
I had a wonderful foot and lower leg massage. Melanie had her hair styled. Other attendees were also getting makeup sessions. How wonderful to be getting pampered in private cabanas by the pool!
Another all-day area was the Lobby Lounge where attendees could relax and also learn about the TeacherWishList.com which is a project sponsored by Bounty to ensure classrooms are properly stocked.
I hope P&G brings this back next year as it really started the conference off right. It was done so well! After a quick farewell to our friends, we headed up to our rooms to get ready for the evening events. More to come on that!
