Maria Shrivers Womans Conference

Where do I begin, First Lady Maria Shriver, Katie Couric, Madeleine Albright, Ariana Huffington, Alicia Keys, Tipper Gore; all dynamic woman and all speakers at the event. Inspirational is the only adjective to describe what took place under the roof at the Long Beach Convention Center this last Monday and Tuesday. Talk about swag when ladies weren't busy in their prospective sessions learning how to take over the world, they were mixing and mingling on the trade floor with brands like Target, Mattel and Lean Cuisine. The trade floor looked more like a scene out of Aladdin with charming Moroccan tents scattered about. Mattel had lovely models walking about dressed like actual Barbies in ballroom gowns. Target's booth, one of the busiest replicated a chic VIP section of a club in their modern red and white; while woman got pampered to free manicures and make-overs. Quote of the event "There is a special place in hell for woman that don't help other woman!" unbelievably- Madeleine Albright
(about the pic....Yes, It's Sir Richard Branson....sometimes I have to smile at my awesome life ;-)
