O-O-O x3 Part I #Oprah #Orgullosa #Olay #LifeYouWantMIA


No se if I need to "disclose" as this is more of a Gracias than a sponsored post-
pero por sea... we wouldn't want Tio Sam aka FCC mad at BB, would we? 
And this post, it's all Babushka, all over the place.







HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!

After 2+ months in Miami, BB tries to summarize the many blessings encountered. Of course I can't do it all justice, and without pics,notes,brochures, the memory isn't coming up with todo, so before BB forgets, let's start with the last week.  Quee?? JUSOFONII Ok si, Babushka does usually go backwards and against the norm doesn't she??  Pero you know what? That's what Oprah says makes us special, being true to ourselves. And I heard that straight from her. Oh Si BB did!!!

Gracias to the wonderful world of Orgullosa, the P&G division for Latinas, Babushka was able to attend Oprah's "The Life You Want " event in Miami. On to OTown BB went. With sombrilla in hand and bus pass ready, Sweetie & BB were set to experience the world of O.

OTown in Miami was next to the American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami. 
You can see my beloved Freedom Tower in the last pic.

We took part of the Power Meet-up and since y'all know BB doesn't work any harder than she has to- 
here's a snippet of the Media Alert.

Some of the Panel Pearls:

Set Your Boundaries. Make "Me" time. ~Carla Hall
The "Bad" things are beautiful too. ~Jessi Leon

On the Risk of Enterpreneurship-
Lost job after 4 years and started styling clients out of necessity;
this in turn became the successful Trendy,Inc.   Stylist Irma Martinez says about hurdles-

"Clean up the mess and be happy- Do What You Love."

ESOESOESO!!!

Babushka's in total agreement & enjoyed their messages.  You know what else BB enjoyed?
           
"Guests will also be treated to unique beauty brand makeovers, expert demos, and skincare consultations from Olay and COVERGIRL. Tide, Charmin and Crest will also provide attendees with mini styling presentations, an inspirational photo experience, a live wall art project and expert demos.These specialty brand experiences are designed to help inspire Miami residents to not be hesitant to take the necessary steps to renew and reinvent themselves."

Pero sabes que mas was unbelievable? 
Sweetie & BB were invited to the VIP Suite to see Oprah!

ESOESOESOOOO!!!

The Suite, the Swag, the Smorgasbord!!!

Pero none of this means anything without the-

 *WHY:            With The Oprah Life You Want Tour and COVERGIRL, aim to empower women in Miami with the tools they need to be their best selves, empowering them to discover the potential hidden inside and summon the courage to overcome obstacles, so they can more easily live the life they want every day.



Gracias Orgullosa por the invite y el hospitality.  
And though Babushka doesn't "need" anyone's approval or consent to pursue my dreams, 
a gentle note of validation is always nice.
