Brunch with SWAK

Sunday, June 30, 2013

My brain is still in vertigo from my recent trip to NYC and no more than 4 days later I'm on a plane headed to the hottest place on earth - PHOENIX to visit my Grandma who is in the hospital. I'm so glad I was able to come out to see her and my family here, but everyone's nerves are SHOT and I'm thinking of dispensing Zoloft by the bottle. No really.

I'm sitting her in the Best Western Inn & Suites in Sun City Arizona (so appropriate) battling non-connecting wifi, 119 degree heat, emotional family, tired and bored 4yo (yes have Kyle with me) and having no car. I swear, this trip has definitely knocked everything out of me that NYC didn't accomplish. The only thing keeping me half sane was we got upgraded to a suite after the desk clerk took pity on us when we walked in ready to puke all over him from heat exhaustion (don't get me started on that story -short version - in a van without AC for 1.5hrs in rush hour on Friday night when 119 out = aka 135 in back of van where I was).

I booted up my laptop and wanted desperately to knock out a recap post from NYC, but this is all I can muster babes, you're going to get it piece by piece *laughing*.

Huge thank you to one of my favorite companies who has always supported me and I them because I love their product and message. SWAK Designs hosted an amazing brunch for some bloggers (why do we not have a group shot??!!!) on a rooftop in Manhattan, we had the best view of the Empire State Building and the amazing NYC HEAT! *I can't get awayyyy*. I think I was the only person to NOT get a crazy sunburn! But the food, company and gifts were OH SO Perfect for a busy week in the city. Thank you SO MUCH Sarah and Brad and team for taking care of us.

Here are some fun snaps taken by blogger love Kelly Brown of MASQUE MAG...and I was actually wearing my favorite SWAK Item - the pretty cami! LOL It really is my favorite go to for being cute and comfortable - no better top to throw on with a great necklace. I did buy the 3X by accident and it's too big around arms, but with a black bra - it was ok. So if a 22/24 on top - go with the 2X.

Can't wait to have my brain on straight to tell you the rest of my journey in NYC!
