So I arrived in Los Angeles yesterday and was met by a very sweet representative from Glamour Reel Moments who made sure that my flight was smooth and my luggage arrived safely (had a scare for a few moments that my bag was missing but thankfully, it arrived with my brand spankin’ new red dress tucked inside.)
I know I had mentioned yesterday that I was taking the crappiest camera known to mankind on this trip because my snazzy Nikon Coolpix is somewhere at their headquarters taking up shelf space and preventing me from capturing some of the coolest moments ever. And so, when I arrived at my room at the fabulous Sofitel hotel in Los Angeles, I was beyond thrilled when I looked at the amazing goody basket they had left for me. Why do you ask? Simple – because it came with a Flip camera! Yes – they have actually given me a Flip to capture my experience, along with sweets, treats, water, slippers and of course fabulous hair products from Suave that I already have had the chance to try out at home and I have to say – they are simply divine.
My makeover starts at 1pm so I’ll be sharing my transformation real soon. If only the trip came with lipo. Dare to dream. In the meantime, here’s a little photo and video montage of my Glamour Reel Moments Getaway. Part I (Before).
How cool is this…the NY Times may not be covering Role Mommy, but the Grand Rapids Press is…take that!
Dorit Shapiro, wife, mother of two and president of the Gal to Gal Foundation, lost her brave battle to breast cancer yesterday. She was 38 years old.
It was Dorit’s hope to spread the word about the Gal to Gal Foundation and their mission to help grant wishes and provide informational resources to patients and families struggling with this deadly disease. Even in her final days, Dorit worked tirelessly to get the message out about the importance of lending support to the brave men and women who are currently living with stage IV breast cancer. If you’d like to honor Dorit’s memory, please lend your support by joining the Gal to Gal Virtual Walk today.
“My goal is to honor the memories of all the women who have lost their battle to this tough enemy and that women and families battling stage IV breast cancer are never forgotten and receive the support they need and deserve. I hope you’ll join me in supporting this wonderful organization until there comes a day where we are not needed because we have found a cure and no one must face living with this diagnosis.”
–Dorit Shapiro, 1970-2008
