When we first envisioned an event called, All About That Mama that would bring together our LA community for a chance to indulge and connect, never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined how incredible the event would turn out to be. From the stunning rooftop at The Jeremy West Hollywood to demos of the newly launched Joy Photo Album and photo ops with Amy Tan, the roof was transformed into a gorgeous oasis by our very own LA member, Pamelyn Rocco of Bashery & Co and One Nine Design. There wasn’t a detail left untouched and it was pretty darned perfect if we do say so ourselves.
The bulk of our event was spent learning from women who have pivoted their careers post-baby into something that ignites their passions and gives them purpose. We sat down with actress and Maed.co founder Denise Vasi, Wall Street powerhouse-turned founder of Olive & June Sarah Gibson Tuttle, actress, author and co-founder of Little Moon Society Haylie Duff, and lip queen Sara Happ herself, in an interactive and informative discussion on what works (what doesn’t!), how they manage the juggle between work and motherhood and what their true feelings were about social media and the role it plays in our lives. We could have continued the discussion all afternoon but alas, there were other indulgences in store.
Guests were invited to an intimate chat with celebrity nutritionist and wellness expert Kelly LeVeque, who broke down the details of how to optimize our day by what we do to fuel our bodies. We now have clear, actionable advice that we are already incorporating into our routines.
With our minds buzzing with inspiration and advice, we turned our focus to self-care and indulged in Sundaes from Little Spoon, braid bar and blow-outs by Drybar, mini-manis by Olive & June, make-up and lashes by Blushington, lip service by Sara Happ, and much appreciated shoulder massages by Ranavat Botanics. It was every mamas dream team.
And it wouldn’t be a heymama event without the most amazing parting gifts. Thank you to Erin Condren for our gorgeous planners to get 2018 off on the right foot, Marc Fisher, Grey and Ray, Primally Pure, Mignonne, Blushington, VPL, and Ranavat Botanics. And we’d like to extend an extra big hug to Chevrolet for getting the heymama team around LA in style in our 2018 Equinox – we almost didn’t mind the infamous LA traffic. Almost.
We can’t wait to bring this event to New York and Miami in the New Year. Cheers to all of you for making heymama the best mama community around.
