OfficiallyHot.com is back and hotter than ever, partnering with new organisations and brands.
In the last few months OfficiallyHot.com and myself has been on a massive journey of discovery. I have traveled the world to source interesting content and products, acquiring knowledge to develop OfficiallyHot.com a from standard blog site into a website which shares information and opinions on beauty related topics, personal development, and beauty training and education for the blogging community and beauty professionals
This development process has been a learning experience in itself, challenging myself and my working practices, this is an ongoing journey of discovery that has been as much about personal growth as it has been about the growth of OfficiallyHot.com.
Whilst in New York for the International Beauty Show I had the opportunity to meet some amazing people and attended some amazing parties. I have to thank fellow blogger Courtney Henley- Anderson of www.thatgirlattheparty.com. For totally hooking me up!! The joinFITE.org event, FITE standing for Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship. Hosted by founder of Dermalogica Jane Wurwand, stood out for me as the event with the most impact. As I mentioned in the previous post I was totally blown away by the concept and the conviction with which Jane spoke about the global initiative which is an unprecedented partnership between Dermalogica and Kiva.org to provide women worldwide with small loans to start or grow a business. The goal is to help 25,000 women in the next 2 years. It was totally fitting the event was hosted on International Women’s Day.

In addition to meeting Jane Wurwand and most of the top US Dermalogica executives I also meet a lady called Sinead Norenius Self tanning expert and Co founder iFabbo.com an international organisation for beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers community http://www.ifabbo.com.
