We set off early morning for my first Glam Jam, Touchstone Crystal by Swarovski National Conference. I was very excited since I’ve heard so much about it. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. I’ll keep my talking to a minimum since this post is long and filled with tons of photo’s. Many of the photo’s were taken by other women in the group, some I’m not sure who took them. So credit from photo’s goes out to all of us.
Here we are, waiting for our Uber. This was my first Uber encounter as well.
Here we are, packed in our Uber. Might have been a little too much luggage for this vehicle. It was on top, in the trunk and on our laps. But we made it, with a few laughs along the way.
Just arriving. Friday night is where everyone arrives and gathers, meets each other, mingles, catches up, picks up your packet of information, find where everything is at, unwind from long flights and get settled in your hotel room.
Meeting others from our team. Something about a group of women, working together, supporting each other, all working towards different goals and the same goals and everyone having unique reasons for being here. I loved meeting and learning about these women right here.
We set out to find the restaurant we were meeting at. The funny thing is, this place was only a few blocks away, but sort of confusing to find for the first time. We all had our phones out, GPS’ing directions, but all traveling on foot together. Just sort of cracked me up.
We made it though. Beautiful place. Providence G in Rhode Island.
Sitting around a fire pit outdoors with good cocktails, food and new friends.
Picture of the whole crew.
I had fish taco’s and they were VERY good. I could have eaten 5 more kind of good.
Good times gals. (9 second video)
And here we go, let the conference begin. And the fun, holy cow, these women know how to rock a good time and make conference far from dull.
Whoever handles the music throughout the whole conference…..you did awesome! Loved the tunes played the whole weekend. Some of our group before starting up the first day.
The speakers throughout the weekend were amazing. The ones from the company were informative and interesting to listen to. But the Consultants that spoke about their stories and why they started or why they are where they are at now…..tear jerkers that’s for sure.
Ok, this company is always giving away stuff. Jewelry, money, rewarding the well deserving hard working Consultants like crazy. Love ya Touchstone !!!! Maybe next year I’ll be up there. No, wait, next year I WILL be up there.
Of course we broke off into groups for training too.
2nd day. Thankful for Starbucks coffee within our hotel.
Then they set us free to check out every single piece of current and brand new jewelry. I could have camped out in this room for several days.
And the extra sparkle scattered throughout….I wanted to bring some home.
Shiny backdrops for photo’s.
Swarovski Crystal Oscar Curtain !!! This was so cool !
Made for great picture’s.
I really think I need this in my home somewhere.
The food they provided was So Very Good !!! Um, let’s take a moment. Have you ever had Hagen Daz Ice Cream ? Oh my god, was it incredible. Wow. Really GOOD.
At the mall next to us, we got to go into a Swarovski store. That was pretty cool to check out the pieces they had in there.
Ok, check these out ! A new friend I met this weekend, and roomed with, had these boots. I know, Kick-Ass right !?!? I soooo need a pair. I loved em ! Well, enough to drag her foot out for a picture of them. I just love these boots.
Speaking of the extreme generosity of Touchstone Crystal, this is 1 of the 4 gifts we all received while we were there.
My fave was the Aurora Boreale Ice Bracelet. The word beautiful doesn’t do it justice. It’s so much more than that. When I wear it, sometimes I just can’t stop looking at it.
Here are all 4 of the pieces we all received.
Then of course, the trip reveal to Secrets Cap Cana in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This is what everyone will be working towards for next years trip.
Quick pic of our hotel. Lovely place.
The end of the conference part is now over, but the fun is not.
Love these pic’s like this.
The final night is a wonderful meal and party for us. Loved how the room was decorated.
Just really cool deco.
And sparkly deco of course !!!
Have you ever done this? You dress up and dance/lip sync in front of a green screen, and the camera projects it up on a wall screen and makes it look all cool and wonky at the same time. It was so much fun ! Again, I think I need this at home.
Fun time ladies.Thank you all for everything.
Good bye for now Rhode Island. See you next year. (6 second video)
What a great experience...can't wait to go back next year. Next year maybe we'll plan for an extra couple of days, and go site seeing to the places our Uber driver suggested.
