I know it’s been a few days, and I’m back! I just spent an exciting weekend in Santa Monica, California (not too far from home for me) with all of the new AVEENO Brand Ambassadors from all over the U.S.! I am happy to tell you that as part of my new partnership with AVEENO, I’ll be able to share my thoughts about all of the latest products, and also tell you about some exciting initiatives that are coming up. But perhaps the highlight of my weekend (besides hanging with 24 other beauty-loving dolls) was attending the Film Independent Spirit Awards.
Upon our arrival, we walked the red (or grey) carpet…and you might be able to spot about half of your AVEENO Ambassadors in this photo. I’m one of them (tucked behind a publicist, I’m sure), but as we were making our way through, Anne Heche was just ahead of us. It was pure CRAZINESS. One person would yell at us to keep walking, then another would yell at us to stop. And the screaming! Let’s just say that I don’t really see myself doing any red carpet interviews of celebs in the future! I’ll leave that to the pros.
I thought it was so awesome that Dale Dickey (Winter’s Bone) stopped by the AVEENO tent to say hello to us after winning Best Supporting Female. The fastest thing I could grab was my iPhone camera! All of Hollywood was out roaming around outside the tents, and we were all freezing. The weather turned freakishly cold for Southern California this weekend, and just outside our tent—Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman were hugging each other for warmth! Laurie from Product Girl even snuggled up to Mark Ruffalo, and has the pic to prove it! No Mark Ruffalo below, but here’s Laurie and I at the Viceroy after we changed into warmer clothes after the show:
Now that I’m home, I’m just getting acquainted with a few of the newest AVEENO Active Naturals products from the Smart Essentials line. One of the first products I wanted to put on your radar is the Smart Essentials Daily Detoxifying Scrub. I’ll post a thorough review of the entire line for you soon, but I had to tell you that I used it each morning over the weekend, and loved how it gently smoothed my skin—and it smells like sunshine! What a great weekend though, thanks AVEENO and RecycleBank!
