Taste the McDonalds Dulce De Leche Shake before its gone & Giveaway

Hello Everyone,

Summer is here and Mcdonalds has introduced a new shake 
option to their already great tasting shakes at McCafe.
The new shake is.......
Dulce De Leche

Dulce De Leche is a Caramel flavored shake and  thanks to McDonalds and LLBLOG the kids and I had the opportunity to try it this past weekend.

Let me just say I can't wait to get another shake, i'm in love, 
Caramel is definitely my favorite flavor in anything, and this shake is by far my new favorite drink for Summer.

Don't let the name fool you this is not overly sweet, it has that perfect touch of caramel with whip cream and a cherry on top :) and it is definitely very refreshing as well.

The 2013 Makeup Show Meetup

This Year I was putting together a small get together of about 5 girls to meet before or after The Makeup Show Chicago . Being from Chicago there are not that many Artist that intermingle so this was a great opportunity to network and have someone to go with to the Event.

I was also in the process of obtaining a Press Pass to cover the show as part of Latina Lifestyle Beauty Bloggers in a blog post and other social media sites like Facebook and Instagram.While going back and forth in e-mails with The Makeup Show Staff was asked if I was interested in having James Vincent at the meetup I was organizing.

I about fell out of my chair with excitement, THEJAMES VINCENT at my Meetup!!!!!!!

I was sooooo happy until I was told I needed 20 attendees it was Thursday afternoon and I needed the count by Friday Morning (Next Day) :(

So, I quickly got in contact with my 5 girls and then hit the Makeup Show Facebook wall to invite other Artists that mentioned they were going.

So in less than 24 hours I was able to get 20 RSVP to the Makeup Show Meetup Event with James. With the help of the other girls I was able to make this happen and we met at the Hard Rock Cafe In Downtown Chicago. The Staff was great and the food was delicious, could not Have picked a better Place :) I met other Makeup Artist, Hairstylists and Models at the meetup and we listened to James talk about Makeup, Branding, his experiences in the business, and he also gave us tips on what to do to excel in this industry.

This is defiantly an experience we won't forget, It's not everyday we meet famous artist :)

Wait you don't know who James is??  Have you been under a rock??? lol JK
