Viva Fat Vegas Series 5: Lunch with Rosie Mercado, Torrid Shopping and The Fab 3 First Giveaway!

Thank you guys so much for checking out our Viva Fat Vegas Series!  This is the last series post and well, it’s only right that we reward our loyal readers for caring in the first place!  So, read up and enter!

In other news, we have been so busy over here planning our next trip that has been pulling us away from the bl0g!  But don’t worry, we’re back and we have a million more posts for you guys!

On our third and pretty much final day of the Viva Fat Vegas Blogger Conference we started with a lunch with Rosie Mercado at the Fire Fly, which served amazing Tapas (finger food)!

Check out these amazing food pics Jasmine captured:

After eating, we talked with Rosie Mercado who brought up exciting topics about blogging, size issues, and empowerment among all women.  She even captured video of these hot topics that she has turned into webisodes for your viewing pleasure!  Check out the dish with all the Viva Fat Vegas Girls!

After, Rosie Mercado presented us with more Swag, a makeup bag filled with products from her Bellisima makeup line!  I was so thrilled to see this because I love makeup and I couldn’t wait to take it home and try it on! I’ve already used the lip gloss and I’m in love with it!

After, we hit up Torrid for our last event and they rolled out the pink carpet for sure!  We all unanimously agreed that Torrid has the best shopping experience and they did not disappoint.  We saw a rack with styled outfits from torrid and got to try on clothes from their hot fall collection as well.  Check it out:

The ladies of Viva Fat Vegas!

Doing this last post is bitter sweet because this experience was so rewarding!  We have met amazing people who are doing great things for plus women and the empowerment of women in general.  So, though our journey to Vegas ended, we embark upon a new journey exploring and helping bring our issues, fabulous women and empowerment to the forefront of the media.  This is only the beginning!

Thank you Stiletto and Sarah for inviting us and allowing us this wonderful experience.  We feel that we have made friends forever with the ladies of Viva Fat Vegas!
