Road Trip 2013 Conference Discount Code and Ticket Giveaway- 3 Winners!

Default post image


As you’ve probably heard, I’ll be speaking at one if the LARGEST blogging, technology innovation, social media and branding conferences coming to Cincinnati, Ohio in October! Road Trip 2013 is going to be a blast, and I’ll be sharing the stage with Seth Godin, Tanyalynnette Palmo (of BIG FIX fame!), Crystal Paine, Peter Shankman, and my personal favorite; Make-A-Wish founder Frank Shankwitz.

If you want a full run-down of the conference, click here.

I can’t wait to share with all of you what I’ve learned first hand from blogging! I’ll be covering some pretty heavy topics- from dealing with trolls to using social media (the right way) during a crisis.

We already have a few amazing sponsors lined up- including Google! Several brands are already jumping in to also learn and share. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, you can check out more here.  It’s truly going to be an amazing conference that I can’t wait to not only speak at, but also attend.

You can click the image below to download the conference booklet to find out even more!


Want to attend?

There are several different ticket options, but BLUE tickets are the only ticket plans that EXCLUDES hotel accommodations.  Silver and up all include hotel in the cost.  In other words, you only have to figure out how to get there! Which is a huge plus. Very few conferences offer this option. Also, you can split up your payments into 3 installments for a more budget friendly option. You can check out what’s included by clicking here. Want to purchase tickets? My discount code will get you $500 off by typing in “DomesticDebacle” without the quotations. This expires on 7/15/2013, so make sure you reserve your ticket soon! If you choose the payment option, the discount will come off the final payment. If you’re planning on going, you can also click here to grab your badge(s).

We want you attend, so personal sponsorship is encouraged. So many conferences try to limit the blogger/brand relationship, but that is NOT the case with Road Trip 2013. We don’t care if you come in a full-on Ronald McDonald costume, we just WANT you there!

Now for the giveaway!

I am giving away THREE BLUE-Level tickets valued at $1,125 each!

The BLUE-Level ticket includes:

  • transportation to and from the airport
  • general session access Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8:00am-5:00pm
  • all daily networking sessions, “Local Flair” Power Breakout Workshops, “Barber Shop” Large Group Session Q’nA’ Panels

While this is a high-dollar giveaway, I’m going to make it easy on everyone.

*All you have to do is head to the site, and check out the speakers list. Come back here, and leave a comment telling me which speaker you are most excited about hearing from (except for me, because that’s not fair to the other speakers 😉 ).*

Win your very own Tony Awards Red Carpet Look from Mary Kay! CLOSED

Default post image

I’m a huge makeup junkie, and rarely go without it. My absolute FAVORITE brand of makeup is Mary Kay. I have very sensitive skin, and Mary Kay makeup doesn’t bother me at all, AND makes me look my best. They literally have something for everyone- whether you want a bold look, or lean more towards neutral. I’ve compared some of the expensive high-end makeup at the department store counter to Mary Kay, and Mary Kay wins out every time!

I don’t know about you, but I was glued to my phone watching the photos come in of celebrities on the red carpet for the Tony Awards last night! But I wasn’t looking for what gown they were wearing, I was looking at their makeup!

What’s great about Mary Kay Makeup is that you can get the same Tony Awards Red Carpet Makeup Looks at home! My friends at Mary Kay have already put together two of their favorite looks from last night’s awards with some tips you can easily recreate.

Pucker up in a bold red lip inspired by Scarlett Johansson:


  •  Cover the entire eyelid with Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist and dab Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Crystalline onto the inner corners of the eyes and under the brow bones
  • Apply Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner in Black along the top lash line and wing outward.
  • Generously coat top and bottom lashes with Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Black
  • Line lips with Mary Kay Lip Liner in Clear. Apply Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Sizzling Red directly from the tube, using a lip brush if needed. Blot with Mary Kay Beauty Blotters and reapply for intense, long-lasting wear
  • Apply Mary Kay Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation and contour using Mary Kay Mineral Bronzing Powder in Sandstone


Turn heads with defined eyes and a neutral lip inspired by Anna Kendrick:

  • Begin with Mary Kay TimeWise Matte-Wear Liquid Foundation then dab Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Sparkling Cider on the apples of the cheeks
  • Apply Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in White Lilly to the eyelid and up to the brow bone, then blend Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Silver Satin onto the eyelid up to the crease
  • Apply Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Coal to the outer corner of the eye to create a smoky effect then line top and bottom lashes with Mary Kay Eyeliner in Black and smudge with a Mary Kay smudger brush
  • Generously apply two coats of Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Black
  • Line lips with Mary Kay Lip Liner in Neutral. Apply Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Natural Beaute to complete the look.

So now for the giveaway!

  • Tell me which look (between Scarlett Johansson or Anna Kendrick) you love the most. You can only pick one in your comment! One winner will win the entire Mary Kay Makeup look they have chosen.

One winner will be chosen on Monday, June 17th at 11:00am by random.org. Giveaway valid for US residents over the age of 18.
