Julep Maven :: August 2012 It Girl Box

i got my August Julep Maven box today! as usual i picked It Girl, which came with three polishes. the extra treatie this month was a tote bag... which is cute, but pretty small. i think it will work for quick trips to the mall, though... here in Monterey, California, you have to bring your own bags when you go shopping or be forced to pay 10 cents a bag (OR be like me and stumble around carrying everything because you forgot your own, but refuse to pay for theirs!).

here's everything!




here are the three polishes (Sienna, Melanie, Harley), they are supposed to have chrome or metallic finishes!




they switched things up and used a pink box this time... how cute is that? i also threw the little card with a quote from Oprah on top of the box.




and i just wanted to show their sweet little note they had printed on the inside of the box. i love a company who appreciates their customers!




i have glued to the tv today, watching Olympic equestrian cross country that i Tivoed from the wee hours of the morning! i can't wait to watch show jumping tomorrow. i'm also glued to the gymnastics events. are you guys watching anything from the Olympics? Ria :)

Cosmoprof 2012... The Exhibitors!

today i wanted to take you through a bunch of the exhibits from Cosmoprof in pictures... so, this post will be loaded down with photos :D i hope you all get at least of taste of what it was like to wander around this giant place!

first off, we went past the Jessica booth... i didn't really get a chance to talk to the vendors there, but i did take a couple shots! i really liked how funky and mod their booth was, it looked more like an actual showroom than any other booth i saw. find them at... http://www.jessicacosmetics.com/.




and here's a close up of that AMAZING chandelier... i want one for my craft room!




this is Destany (Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom) getting some lashes put on at the American International Industries booth... we all took turns :D they are huge company that own gems like China Glaze and Seche Vite!




my turn :)





a new to me company is Gelaxy... they are wonderful! they have a huge line of over 300 gel polishes and many of those have matching colors in regular nail polish, brand named B Touch. they did this for the customer who likes a gel manicure, but prefers polish for a pedicure! they gave me a B Touch polish to try, and i have to say i'm impressed... review coming up! i will also have information in the review on where to purchase :)




they also have an extensive line of nail art polishes!




i didn't take many pictures at the Nubar booth, but these are two collections that i think i'm definitely going to have purchase in full! find them at... www.ByNubar.com.

Prisms (i apologize for the glare, i had no idea it was so bad when i took the photo!)




Sparkles




i didn't get to talk to anyone from Milani (and i actually have yet to try their polish!) but their board showing off their polish colors is just so pretty, i had to share :) find them at... http://www.milanicosmetics.com/.




i had to share this photo of Julie G with her nail line from Jesse's Girl... it's just so cute :)




and Jesse's Girl regular polish line... with a bit of their cosmetics in the shot, as well! find them at... http://www.jessesgirlcosmetics.com/.





Beauty Treats is another brand i hadn't heard of before... i didn't have time to talk to the vendors, but i wanted to share the display because it was so pretty and full of color. plus, major bonus if you're American, it's made in the USA :) find them at... www.beauty-treats.com.




i'm going to finish up with a brand that debuted at Cosmoprof, Cuccio Colour. they have gorgeous colors and the one i swatched had a great brush and was super pigmented. i will have review on it... coming up! i can't wait for this company to come out in stores, they are making a great start! this is a professional lacquer, so it won't be available at places like Walmart, though.




here's one of their racks...




and some collections... i'm really loving the colors in the Eye Candy one!




i realized as i was editing that i had way more photos for some brands... so, they will be getting their own posts! i hope you enjoyed seeing what i saw at the Conference! Ria :)

Cosmoprof 2012 Post Show Press Release

i had planned today on doing a post with pictures on exhibitors from Cosmoprof... but one of the vitamins my doctor prescribed seems to have given me an allergic reaction! i was really scared, i had a rash everywhere and my skin felt like it was on fire on the inside. yuuuck! luckily, two Benadryl seemed to take care of it and i'll call my doc on Monday... but i'm being lazy today! so, i'm posting the final press release from Cosmoprof 2012... there's even information at the bottom for Cosmoprof 2013 :D Happy Saturday! Ria :)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 

COSMOPROF NORTH AMERICA 2012
 
POST SHOW RELEASE
 
Las Vegas, NV (July 25, 2012) –  Celebrating 10 years in Las Vegas, Cosmoprof North America continues to exemplify the energy and creativity that drive the beauty industry. This year’s show boasted the highest attendance and participation, which proves that the beauty industry is resilient and poised for expansion in the upcoming year.  Cosmoprof North America prides itself on uniting attendees and exhibitors, acting as the ultimate platform for networking, sharing new and upcoming products and cultivating new business relationships.  Encompassing all sectors of the industry under one venue, Cosmoprof North America remains the single most important forum for the beauty industry in the United States.  
The event, which was held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center from July 22 – 24, featured 856 exhibiting companies to a sold out show floor along with over 25,000 attendees representing a 9% increase to the year before that included importers, distributors, manufactures, and global beauty leaders all under one roof. As in past years, CPNA attracted many new and innovative brands in addition to industry leaders such as AHAVA, CONAIR, CND, Essie / L’Oreal Professional, Moroccan Oil, OPI Nail, Orly, RUSK, Schwarzkopf, and Zotos International.

The International Buyer Program, sponsored by UNIPRO, the Italian Association of Cosmetic Industries, once again united buyers and sellers around the world with the resources, contacts, and data to build business partnerships. Beauty and cosmetic companies showcased their products and were offered the opportunity to have pre-scheduled appointments with a group of selected importers and distributors. Overall 300 meetings were held between international buyers involving more than 150 exhibiting companies and 88 qualified international buyers. The international buyers were invited from Argentina, Canada, Chili, Honduras and Mexico; the US Commercial Service was also present at the event with buyers from Bulgaria, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Canada, Ecuador and New Zealand.

Through strong collaborations with countries seeking to expand their beauty trade presence, CPNA dedicated special sections on the show floor to distinct International Country Pavilions. Country Pavilions allow small and medium-sized companies from within select markets to participate in CPNA with the objective of obtaining direct “face time” with distributors and retailers to secure distribution in the U.S. Featured countries and regions at the 2012 show included Brazil, China, Columbia, Italy, South Korea, and Taiwan.

Discover Beauty, an exclusive initiative of CPNA, assists emerging brands in finding the appropriate retail market, while highlighting new trends. The one-on-one meetings with prominent retailers like BeautySage.com, C.O. Bigelow, Duane Reade, Henri Bendel, HSN, Nordstrom, Skins 6|2 and Zappos aim to give Discover Beauty brands critiques and feedback. The program returned this year with 15 brands competing for the prestigious Discover Beauty Award. With voting done by specialty retailers and editors from top beauty sites, these brands were judged on creativity, innovation and market readiness. The 2012 Discover Beauty Award winner is Layla Cosmetics from Italy, which was announced at the Discover Beauty party at MIX in THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. Fusing together the latest technology and Italian fashion influence, Layla Cosmetics has been creating trend setting and cutting edge nail products from Milan for over 70 years.

Earlier this year, CPNA unveiled its first-ever Discover Beauty partnership with BeautySage.com, the new e-commerce site founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen. BeautySage.com will host an exclusive Discover Beauty pop-up store that will feature three Discover Beauty brands from this year’s lineup. These brands, which were announced also announced at the Discover Beauty party include, Marula – The Leakey Collection, Recipe for men and Fairiche.

CPNA also introduced another new initiative this year as a part of the Discover Beauty program called, SPOTLIGHTS. This new exhibit space offered smaller companies that excel on creativity, but seek economic solutions, the opportunity to showcase their products at CPNA. With 19 brands in the program, SPOTLIGHTS featured small artisan labels that are a prime fit for high-end retail stores, boutiques, salons and spas, and was all abuzz with activity throughout the three days of the show.

Top trade publications from across the globe joined leading beauty industry professionals at the show to seek out the newest emerging trends. CPNA also saw a higher presence of online media with over 100 bloggers reporting live from the show. In addition, Beaut-E Zone, which featured editors from Bellasugar.com, DailyMakeover.com, TotalBeauty.com and YouBeauty.com / BeautySage.com was a huge success. These leading online beauty editors were able to meet with exhibitors in Discover Beauty and report trends they discovered and show happenings on their respective sites; combined they have a total reach of over 30+ million readers.

Prior to the show, CPNA announced that five talented students from the Penrose Academy in Scottsdale, AZ would participate in CPNA’s second annual Trendscout program. While given unrestricted access to the show floor, the CPNA Trendscouts met with exhibitors to find new product launches and discover the latest trends. They reported their findings via Twitter and Facebook posts, which were displayed in real-time at the main entrance of the show floor, helping attendees identify the current trends at the show. CPNA will issue a Trend Report, which will be based on the scouts findings later this month.

Staying connected during the show was easier than ever this year. Attendees and exhibitors could “check in” via Foursquare and view show specials as well as download the new CPNA Smartphone App, which helped attendees find their favorite exhibitors and other companies. Guests could also scan the new CPNA QR Code that featured exclusive show promotions and tips from CPNA show organizers.

Every year CPNA brings industry leaders to the forefront to share innovative ideas and experiences that will help the beauty industry better understand the dynamics and market trends, current and future. Special education seminars were filled to capacity with more than 500 attendees in total. Business and industry leaders from multiple sectors of the industry participated in round-table discussions and panels to share their knowledge and insights.

CPNA Hosts PBA Beauty Week
In addition to all that CPNA offers, the event also hosts PBA Beauty Week from the Professional Beauty Association. PBA Beauty Week features the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA), PBA Symposium, and BEACON. All three events featured a record number of attendees.

The NAHAs in particular, which are the professional hair care industry’s single most important awards event of the year, were hosted by famed entertainment journalist and star of E! Network’s E! News and Fashion Police, Giuliana Rancic. In addition to hosting the show, Rancic also received the Professional Beauty Association’s Beautiful Humanitarian Award for her work with the charities Dress for Success, Bright Pink, Operation Smile, Mercy Home for Boys & Girls in Chicago, and the Children’s Miracle Networks. This year’s show was attended by a record number of more than 3,000 guests and was also seen worldwide via live online steaming broadcast by an additional 40,000.  Dimitrios Tsioumas of the Mizu Salon in New York City took home NAHA’s top prize, Hairstylist of the Year, as well as the Contemporary Classic honor.

Cosmoprof 2012... The Experience

when i left my hotel for Mandalay Bay, where Cosmoprof was held, i had no idea what to expect. frankly, i was pretty terrified! luckily, there were loads of signs pointing the way, so finding the press room wasn't too big of deal. once i made it up to the press registration desk, my badge wasn't ready yet, so i had to wait a bit. this turned out to be a really lucky break, because it enabled me to meet some other bloggers! i really had to force myself to go up to them and say hi... although you would probably never know it if you've met me in person, on the inside i'm painfully shy! (some of you out there might be shaking your heads in disbelief right now) once all the bloggers were ready to head in to the conference, my badge still wasn't quite ready, so the sweet Lindsey of Neverland Nail Blog stayed behind with me :)

i was so privileged to receive a press badge for the event, i'm hanging in up at my nail desk as a memento!




walking into this conference was completely overwhelming... there were 856 exhibitors there... along with over 25,000 attendees! this started up two days of walking... i have no idea how many miles we walked... absolutely loads. i think tomorrow i'll do a post on some of the exhibitors i met saw! the groups changed around a bit, but i mostly palled around with Shelley (Polarbelle) and Destany (Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom). we were constantly meeting with companies and learning about the product line, we barely to took time to eat!

this book had information on all the exhibitors... and it's tabbed! how handy is that?!




the bloggers had events to go to both nights i was there, the first one was with Ninja Polish and Katie Cazorla from Nail Files, the second night was The Layla Party! i really enjoyed hanging out with everyone in a social setting... there wasn't much time to chat during the day. 

if you are a blogger, i highly recommend going to Cosmoprof next year... you learn so much! not only about companies and their products, but also about blogging in general. i'm so glad all my family and friends pushed me to go... it was definitely worth overcoming the fear.

so, what do you all think? would you be interested in attending Cosmoprof next year? Ria :)

Cosmoprof 2012... Famous Faces!

i'm hoping tomorrow to do my big Cosmoprof experience post, today i spent most of the day sleeping again... apparently, i got dehydrated at while at the conference! so, i'm trying to get my electrolytes back up with Gatorade... good thing i love Gatorade :)

i wanted to post pictures of the amazing ladies i got to meet while at Cosmoprof... it's really awesome to be able to meet people you admire so much!

this is me with Zoya... THE Zoya of Zoya nail polish! it was an incredible honor to meet her :)




this is Julie G from Jesse's Girl cosmetics... she is just as nice in person as she seems in her Youtube videos!




and Rebecca Rachael (Jesse's daughter!), a make up artist who designed a totally new brushroll! check it out on her arm... it's such a great idea! buy it at... http://www.brushsleeve.com/.




this is me and Shelley (Polarbellewith entrepreneur Sinead Norenius... you might have seen her on HSN with her Beautisol self tanner!




this is me with Katie Cazorla, the star of the reality show 'Nail Files'! it comes on Sundays at 9 on the TV Guide Network.




she even autographed a sheet for my blog... so sweet!!




and finally, i met Maria Morrison from Cult Nails... she is SO nice! and it's always exciting to meet another Maria :)

2012 Cosmoprof Day 2... Products to Review!

oh, man... it's good to be home! i guess it's good i came home yesterday because i got sick last night... i think my body was just really tired. we took Jewels to obedience school tonight, and the fact that i've been gone most of the week really showed... we didn't do very well! we'll have to work really hard this week so we can catch back up with the rest of the class.

i'm still not feeling 100%, so i'm going to post pictures today of the products i received for review the second day of Cosmoprof. i'm still in shock over how generous the companies were and i can't wait to get into reviewing everything! if you see something you'd like reviews on sooner than others, just comment below :)

here's the massive jumble...




and the nail stuff!!




in the top right corner you can see the famous Sticks 'n Stones... i'm so excited to try out such a sought after polish! the hair care products i'm super excited about trying are the Rusk Deep Shine line... at least i think those are what i'm going to use first, i have a lot to choose from and they all look so awesome! 

i miss all the new friends i made at Cosmoprof... meeting so many wonderful people was the absolute best part of the whole conference! Ria :)

The Layla Party!


last night i went the amazing Layla cocktail party! it was really cool to be able to interact with the ladies behind Layla (it’s pronounced lye-luh, by the way… i had no idea!) and find out more about the company, including its origins. since i had never heard of the company until this year, i was shocked to learn that they’ve been around since the 1930s in Italy! the founder learned how to make nail polish working near the docks in New York City, and brought the trade back to Italy… how cool is that!?  they actually make a lot more types of makeup products than polish, but to the best of my knowledge, those aren’t available in the US :( if they are as good as their polishes, they are absolutely amazing! i will definitely let you know if i find a place that stocks their makeup! Layla has some exciting new collections coming out, but (ah, tease!) i’m going to talk about those in a different post :D

this is me with the Layla ladies!




and this is the super generous goodie bag Layla gave out! i CANNOT WAIT to start swatching and playing with these babies… a couple new collections in there!




it was great to be able to mingle and chat with other bloggers, having a couple cocktails. during the conference we were all so busy working that we weren’t able to just hang out. i can't tell you how awesome it is to be around other people who are crazay for polish... all my friends in real life just don't get it :D and of course, spending time with the Layla ladies was absolutely amazing!

i’m currently on a plane right now, flying home… i’m a bit bummed that i missed the last day of Cosmoprof (especially i miss my new friends!!), but i can’t wait to see my husband and doggies! Happy Tuesday! Ria :)

So, Ria... What Nail Stuff Did You Bring To Cosmoprof?

whew, late post today! i have had such an awesome day... i spent most of it wandering the Cosmoprof floor, then we had the Layla cocktail party tonight... i'll talk about that in my Cosmoprof post on Layla :) suffice it to say... they are an amazing company! after the party ended, the Polar Belle and i were starved, so we went to a little diner inside Mandalay... and it was awesome! i highly recommend trying out Red, White, and Blue if you come to Vegas and want a little American style diner... the name is a little wonk, though!

i thought i'd show you just how little nail stuff this nail blogger brought to Vegas. look and be amazed!




can you believe it?! acetone, buffer, pointy Qtips, file, and three Layla Hologram Effects! when i got to my hotel, i realized i had even forgotten cotton balls to use with the remover, so i had to buy some... but since they didn't come on the plane, i figured they didn't count in the what i brought department :) when i went through my stuff to do this post, i thought for sure i'd brought more than that... turns out i scaled way down! i brought three polishes because i wanted to change my nails each day and again for the Layla party... sadly, i never had time to switch out from the Ultra Violet, which is what i put on Sunday morning! happy news, though... Seche Vite adds massive amounts of wear time to the Holograms, which for everyday wear makes it worth slightly dulling the holo effect (at least to me!).

it's nearly one a.m. and i have to get up super early to catch my flight... that's going to be tough! i'm majorly bummed that i'm not going to the last day of the conference... but i can't wait to see my husband and dogs. hope you all have had a great start to your week! Ria :)

2012 Cosmoprof Day 1

i can't even tell you all how nervous i was this morning walking into the Press Room at Cosmoprof... i about passed out! once in there, my press pass hadn't been printed (i'm lucky like that) so i had to wait a bit for them to get me one... that turned out to be a good thing because i met loads of amazing bloggers :D they showed me the ropes and a few of us walked around the conference together... it makes it way more to be with friends! here's links to the two ladies i spent the day wandering with... Destany (Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom) http://blog.life-serial.org/, Shelley (Polar Belle) http://www.polarbelle.com/. there are a couple other girls that should be on there, but for the life of me i can't remember their blog names! (i managed to forget my notebook... i know, of all the places to forget something like that!)

i had planned to post about upcoming polishes and general polish info i learned today... but it's so much i need to sort through it all before i can make the post! i will be doing those posts once i get back home, i don't want to miss anything. i will probably do multiple nail posts and one post about non-nail things.

a lot of the brands were super generous with samples... here's a look at what i got...




and here are the nail samples!




i can't wait to start trying things out! i'm going to have to stuff everything in my suitcase and check it through... i'm a bit nervous about my suitcase not making it, which is why i carried on everything to get here. however, it 's totally worth it to be able to try all these new products!

the girls invited me to come to a dinner tonight, so i have that today and the Layla cocktail party tomorrow... life is just beyond exciting for me right now. thank you so much to all of you who read my blog, it's because of you that i'm having all these opportunities!! Ria :)
