Last week I was thrilled to attend the book release party for “Lost in Suburbia: A Memoir: How I Got Pregnant, Lost Myself, and Got My Cool Back in the New Jersey Suburbs.”  The author and I had long been social media friends, and it is always lovely to put a “real life” face to the name.











Plus, I got a blow out, I’m always up for a good blow out from the fabulous Lux Salon in Bethesda. This is me pre blow out:











This is me after blow out, and after I had won an awesome set of sheets from Fresh Linens.  Great hair do, new awesome book to read, AND great new sheets: BEST EVENT EVER.











Also in the swag bag was the most amazing clinical grade skin care, Theraderm.  I’ve been using the products for a week and my skin looks amazing.  Another product in the Swag bag, Unite Luxury and Shine moisture creme, which I love, and is helping with my fight against frizz in the DC humidity, is no where to be found online.  I may have to drive over to the salon just to buy it.  That is how committed I am to my hair.

The best part of the event, as with all events, was just hanging with my friends.  Seeing the cast of Listen to Your Mother, some of which I haven’t seen the the show.  Listening to Tracy read from the book, what she read was HILARIOUS.  Drinking wine and eating cheese.  I ate a lot of cheese.  And the delicious cookies.

I haven’t started the book yet.  I’m saving it for long lazy days this summer at the pool.
