RECAP: MAIC2014 with Motives Cosmetics & Mavens

Hey guys!! I'm back in NY (for this week only) and I've got so much to share. If you follow me on my Social Media channels, you've already seen the photos and videos of Market America International Convention 2014, in which I participated last week, along with Motives Cosmetics and my fellow Motives Mavens. This was our second convention of the year where we presented our best-selling Motives Mavens line, talked about upcoming products and projects, met and greeted our followers from around the world and took thousands of pics with fans. Here's a quick photo recap of the event, I hope you can join us at the next one in Miami!!!

The girls (+ the boys) and I arrived in Greensboro, NC on Wednesday and immediately went on stage for a practice round of our speeches. Later, we also joined in on a Motives Trainers meeting and shared a few words about our award winning line.

I went for a casual chic ensemble: Animal Print Silk Tunic, Ripped Skinny Jeans and Nude Patent Leather lace-up heels. All from Zara.

The girls and I hit the stage to talk about sisterhood, friendship, female empowerment and of course, makeup! We even threw out a few hints about what's coming up next!! After our speeches, Jamie Foxx performed and we were so stoked, we jumped on stage with him!!! SEE VIDEO HERE & HERE

After the stage, we hit the Motives booth with our incredible mentor Loren Ridinger and snapped a few thousand pix & selfies with fans, some of whom flew in from places like Taiwan, Singapore and even as far as Australia!!!
