Happy 2nd Birthday Little Pink Blog [Giveaway]

**WARNING: This post is IMAGE heavy!**

“And, when you want something,

all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

— Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)

It’s been quite the second year and I’d be telling a fib to say I was expecting it — because I wasn’t.

Sometimes, when one door closes, or more than one door closes, we are lucky and blessed enough to have a few more that open. And it’s like Mr. Coelho said, if you want it bad enough, if you try hard enough — well, I believe him, something has got to give.

Little Pink Blog is a community, and some really wonderful people helped make it happen from friendships, to advice, to being professional pals, study buddies or a shoulder to cry on — make no mistake, I didn’t do this alone — and to them, I am grateful. The simple truth of the matter is that in 3-months we had 6,000 unique visitors, 2-years later I’m humbled and in awe of the 30,000 that appreciate all things LPB! Y’all rock my pink socks 🙂

Regardless, from Miami to New York and back and then there again it’s been an adventure… and while, I would love to share all my photos of my first year in New York City and my blog’s second year on the planet, I had to be economical in this post…mostly… well I tried!

Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to me!
Happy SECOND Birthday to my Little Pink Blog,
– Happy Birthday to me!
🙂

And the story starts here… [but if you’re desperate for the giveaway feel free to scroll]

I got the chance to visit Fashion Week in Lincoln Center and guess who I met?

Midtown Girl & I finally met! ... At Fashion Week no less.

with @PeterDavisNYC

And then, there was the  trip to the Clover Club (you must visit there!) in Brooklyn for a special blogger event featuring Mikhail Prokhorov… he’s quite tall…I mean really, really, really tall. I stood on about three stairs and he was still bigger than me!

Mini-adventure for Mikhail Prokhorov in Brooklyn - #client

Can you say, “I dieeee!” I’ve been reading Mashable since I started to get involved in social media and the digital space, so meeting Pete Cashmore was honestly just amazing… he’s a lot taller in person than I thought, either that, or I’m incredibly fun-sized!

Mashable Summit -- yay! Pete Cashmore!

At the opening of Blush Nail Lounge

With the awesome @anthony_garcia

Social media + public relations + Fashion = a Sarah Evans event, like non-other!

with the incredibly gorgeous, fabulous & fashionable @PR_Sarah_Evans

Best social media girlies: @MeghanButler @ChristaMarzan @stephkornblum and @bitty_boop

Anna Wintour, I loved you before, but I love you more for creating Fashion’s Night Out… why? … because I met Marc Jacobs!

*le squeeee*

I met Marc Jacobs! I dieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

A birthday in New York City, isn’t a birthday in New York City, unless you spend it gazing onto Time’s Square, borrowing M&Ms and participating in all sorts of girl-chaos 🙂

Chocolate, anyone?

Birthday-adventure randomness thanks to Susan and Susanna at The Marriott Marquis Times Square's The View

Of course, no birthday in December would be complete without attempting to warm your hands on an LCD fireplace… just because it looks pretty…

I even saw Potter & the Princess during the Quidditch World Cup in New York City… be jealous… it was awesomeness!

I survived Snowmageddon!

Christmas in Bryant Park’s Celsius w/ @sellahi & @abschoff

Did you know that the W Hotels have a Christmas tree in The Livingroom that spells out TREE?

I don’t know about you, but I was amused by that…I want one in my pint-sized apartment next year…

treeeeeeeeeeee

Holiday good times @ the W Downtown 😀

Melissa and I met on Twitter through #140conf … needless to say, best random tweet intros ever!

Oscar Party for TCM with @MelMurphyTweets

Speaking of the #140conf, the backstage is where it’s at! … don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

Spinksy! aka @DavidSpinks
Hieee @DB!
The equally hilarious @patrickbjohnson and @ColbyWG

Abby and I have a tendency to have adventures, even if we don’t plan on it…

… this being one of them, at the GUESS store flagship opening on 5th Avenue… the escalator was funness 😀
Say hello @abschoff 🙂

Yes, and that would be an olive in a pint of beer… don’t ask…

… and the same goes for Kat 🙂

Her and Nicholas had an adventure to find balut (aka chicken fetus — a typical Filipino street food!) off the menu

somewhere in the East Village…

@Kathrine82 & I had super awesome times too… at Cielo
Sipping “The Sasha,” with @Kathrine82 at the W Downtown

And just another reason I love Twitter?

BOXING BABY!

… Not that I know anything about boxing, but it was super cool, nonetheless 🙂

yay! The boxing ring at the Golden Gloves finals at Madison Square Garden!

No introduction needed, I’m humbled by the folks from Jack Morton and Symphony IRI…

Speaking at the Symphony IRI Summit in Miami at the Fonatinebleau

And last but not least, when one of your favourite authors, who happens to living, breathing and tweeting, links your blog from his…

well, it kind of makes your day…week…month…year…life 🙂
