Pinterest LA Meetup!

Posted by: Maggie

Last week I went to the Pinterest LA meetup (I know two events in one week! That makes up for the last three months of leaving the house only to take Eleanor to and from school). I posted about my love for Pinterest over on Maggie Keegan Gross Photography a few months ago. It’s a fantastic place to keep track of all the visual inspiration you find all over the web, share it with friends, and see what’s inspiring them. Because I love it so, I thought it would be fun to head out to Urbanic Paper (the cutest store ever) in Venice to meet up with some fellow pinners.

And it was! It was filled with LA creative types, who all looked effortlessly cute. They made me want to go on a serious shopping spree. I got to talk to some interesting Angelinos, and I even got to meet one of my blogging idols, Joy Cho of Oh Joy! She was very nice and very politely listened while I tried to convince her to add more baby style posts to her blog (she is pregnant after all). I don’t think I sold her on the idea.

Erin (that’s her taking a photo of me taking a photo of her, you can see her’s HERE), who I finally got to meet in person at the Arrojo launch party earlier in the week, was my date for the evening! I had so much fun getting to know her on our long drive to Venice! Thanks for being my date Erin! I had a blast!

If you haven’t joined Pinterest, I really recommend it, check it our HERE, and follow my boards HERE!

Arrojo Launch Party at Rituals Salon

Posted by: Maggie

Last week I was invited to join some other fabulous bloggers, inlcuding Erin from CreativitE and my good friends Susan of susan fujiki (dot) com (formerly the Tatamimat) and Jackie of P.S. Jackie, to Rituals Salon here in Valencia. We were celebrating (with yummy cocktails and appetizers) the launch of Nick Arrojo’s (from tv’s What Not to Wear) new hair care product line. Rituals is the first salon in So Cal to carry it.

We had the opportunity to sit and talk with Nick about his life, career, and the products.  He had an inspiring story of working his way up from a poor childhood to building a successful career and business.

We each got to take home a bag of sample goodies. And I have to tell you I love the shampoo and conditioner. They smell amazing, like being in a spa, and seem to do the job (I’m no hair product expert), and they have a great price point for salon products ($12-19). And isn’t the packaging pretty?!

Thanks to Rituals and Nick for the invite!
