$100 giveaway for the AIRMALL® at PIT

I was recently invited to be a part of the unveiling of the $10 million newly renovated AIRMALL® at PIT in the Pittsburgh International Airport.  It was so fun to take off my "mom hat" for a few hours and enjoy hanging out & shopping with some awesome fellow Pittsburgh gal bloggers. #stylemavens

  • These lovely Candy Bags from Furla certainly caught my attention. What mom doesn't need a bag that easily wipes clean, but looks amazing in the process? :)

    We loved getting to meet and chat with Carmindy (TLC) who flew in just for this exciting event. She demonstrated to us the 5 minute face, perfect for busy moms who barely have time to shower, let alone put on make-up! Her latest book, Bloom, is all about helping girls know that they are growing up gorgeous. It's not about using expensive products or fulfilling a certain image. Carmindy shares both make-up tips as well as inspiring advice for dealing with a wide range of self-esteem and image issues: from zits and glasses to bullying and peer pressure. It might be a great gift for the teen or tween in your life!
    With my pal, Nicole, (Champagne to Crayons) who also got the awesome chance to have a makeover with Carmindy!
    A gorgeous fashion show gave us ideas for all the fall outfits you can put together from the AIRMALL® at PIT stores.
    Creative Kidstuff was one of my favorite stops of the day as I crossed quite a few Christmas gifts off my list!  *   *
  • An award winning "Hands-on-do-touch" toy store
  • Toys for wonderful, whimsical, wildly imaginative fun
  • Fun games and activities for families
  • Unique art, science & building toys to inspire creativity
  • Travel games and activities to take on the plane

  • Definitely a place to occupy your kiddos next time you're waiting it out!
    My favorite Fall finds were aviator sunglasses and Ferocity Lace-Up Booties from Nine West. #9WWeDoShoe
    Photo-bombed by my 3yo and photographed by my's a group effort!
    Maybe your hubby will be the one passing through the airport....Armani Jeans, Brooks Brothers, Hugo Boss, Johnston & Murphy, PGA Tour Shop + more, give him plenty of shopping options as well.
    Thank you to the AIRMALL® at PIT for a wonderful event and your generous gifts to us.
