Tomorrow Tomorrow (Thursday 7th July) is a day I have been waiting for since March, when I first met Sinead Norenius iFabbo.com Co founder and founder of Beautisol in New York at an event hosted by Jane Wurwand founder of Dermalogica. (See post http://officiallyhot.com/2011/03/my-americas-adventure-part-1-ny-joinfite-org/ for further details of that event)
So I have spent the last few months organising this event under the guidance of Tonia Korakis iFabbo’s other Co founder and Meg Hall iFabbo UK’s first member. Wow its almost here so I have attached the official press release to let you all know how fantastic the event is going to be and what brands are participating.
iFabbo Launches in London with VIP Blogger Event
The beauty, fashion and lifestyle organization holds its first event overseas
San Francisco, CA – June 30, 2011 – iFabbo, an international organization for beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers will make its first UK appearance on Thursday, July 7, 2011. The launch event will take place at the chic and trendy Powder Room in Soho from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. The evening, open only to iFabbo members, will allow attendees to create professional contacts, view up-and-coming products, learn about the latest trends, and meet both established and fresh to the scene brands.
iFabbo is a member-only organization that promotes a healthy blogosphere by uniting beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers with brands. The organization provides a platform for education and support to ensure that members remain credible and ethical within the blogosphere. iFabbo also allows fashion and beauty brands to interact and work directly with bloggers within the industry that they ordinarily may not be able to reach. Brands are educated on how to interact with bloggers and other on-line influencers as well as have the opportunity to participate in large and prestigious events. Bloggers who display the iFabbo seal of approval, are immediately recognized as credible and reliable by consumers, organizations and others within the blogosphere.
“When the idea of iFabbo was first born, our goal was to create an environment where bloggers and brands would be exposed to opportunities that they wouldn’t otherwise have, and that’s why we hold these VIP blogger events” said Tonia Korakis, Co-Founder of iFabbo. “We are thrilled with the response we’ve received from both bloggers and brands so far… and even more enthusiastic to be launching overseas. London is our first stop, but it will not be our last. There are millions of bloggers based outside of the United States and we want them to know that we have not forgotten about them, and that we’ll be in a major city near them soon.”
The event is sponsored by the following companies: American Apparel (http://www.americanapparel.com), Beautisol (www.beautisol.com), ColbertMD (www.colbertmd.com), Collection 2000 (http://www.collection2000.co.uk), Eylure (http://www.eylure.com), Elegant Touch (http://www.eleganttouch.co.uk), Murad (http://www.murad.com), Paul and Joe Beaute (http://www.paul-joe-beaute.com), Rocktails, The Cake in a Cup (http://www.thecakeinacup.co.uk), The Powder Room (http://boutique.thepowderpuffgirls.com), Witch Skincare (http://www.witchskincare.com), MAKE UP STORE(http://www.makeupstore.se) .

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. Follow the links for more information or go directly to my original post: My Americas Adventure Part 1 NYC- joinFITE.org http://officiallyhot.com/?p=341
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.
Sinead encouraged me to join iFabbo as it is free for bloggers to join and the benefits are huge, the organisation promotes the blogging profession, connecting brands to bloggers. http://www.ifabbo.com/blogger-benefits.html. Hooking up bloggers like me with really cool content and events.
Over the last month iFabbo has launched worldwide with the UK launch date booked for 7th July. The event will be held at The Powder Room Studio and Boutique on Marshall Street just off Carnaby Street, an amazing retro 50’s style venue.
You have to be a member of iFabbo to attend the event and receive a complementary swag bag. I can’t wait for the event, all I can say is there is some amazing guest speakers booked with some amazing goodies to share with the iFabbo community to follow the link below to sign up and I’ll see you there on the 7th July.
