Last Saturday a HUGE group of PSMMs made their way to New York City for the April Getting Gorgeous with Degree event, put on by the ever fabulous Audrey McClelland and Vera Sweeney.

Big thanks to @GMNortheast and Bryner Chevrolet for providing us with aÂ leisurelyÂ breakfast and then showing us to our cars for our drive into the city. I drove an Equinox, which was perfect for this trip. It was big enough for four adults to ride comfortably and small enough to easily maneuver through the crowded streets of Manhattan. This would be a great vehicle for a family of three or four.
Other PSMMs made their way to the Big Apple on the train.

We all converged on the Metropolitan Pavilion at noon, where the loooong line of bloggin’ mamas was waiting to be checked in.

Getting Gorgeous with Degree was a smash hit. The place was rocking with an impressive collection of brand sponsors, all there representing their brands and eager to network with the 300 bloggers who attended from all up and down the East Coast.

We were greeted with mimosas, and then we began to make our way around the room, visiting sponsors and catching up with old friends.Â Melissa and I enjoyed chatting with Liz Lange andÂ Jane Wagman of Shopafrolic. Yes, that is THE Liz Lange!
Besides opportunities for networking and visiting with old friends, there were stations where we could get our hair and makeup done.

And then it was time to take a break.

Afterwards, groups of us went out to walk around town and find an early dinner before returning to Philly.
