Sexin' it up (for the cure, of course!)

I was excited to be included as a media for the Sexy for the Cure event here in Nashville last night . It is a benefit for Women Who Rock The Cure, a breast cancer awareness organization. This was a pink carpet event for the opening of Sex and the City 2 with a before and after party. And moi covering the pink carpet (with my fabulous gal-pal Leslie Barr on hand helping with photography and various other things) We had a blast. This was a Carrie Bradshaw fantasy for sure! Thanks to Kia Jarmon with the MEPR Agency for the invite! The evening started very conveniently a quarter of a mile from my new digs. Ah, how I am loving being a "city" girl. The before party was at Yolo Restaurant, right next door to where the screening was at the Green Hills Regal Cinema. Cosmos flowed and you have never seen such a sea of pink, like an explosion of Pepto Pismol. A girlfriends Barbie dream-come-true! Skyy Vodka sponsored and was on hand with theme drinks and lots of fun swag! Pictured is the "hello lover" bling ring and me and Leslie on the pink carpet. After Yolo we walked to the movie theater for the big pink carpet event. The stars/VIP's of the evening were the breast cancer survivors who won the essay contest "why are you sexy" and they were glowing! I got to interview one along with some of the fabulous SATC fans there glamming it up. I will post the video interviews later.
Leslie and I really enjoyed watching the movie in one of two sold out theaters and I will write a review on another post, but I will just say everyone applauded at the end and it made for a very fun girl's night out! The after party at The Crows Nest was JUMPING! There were Cosmos and Carrie-tinis (made with Blueberry Vodka) and a cupcake bar. Skyy Vodka was on hand again with more swag, fedoras and adorable SATC2 tank tops. What a great event and festive way to raise awareness for Women who Rock for the Cure!

Great coverage of the event!! Fun was definitely had by all. Thx to Lauren for all the hard work. I can't wait to see some of the interviews with the real stars of the show, the brave breast cancer survivors out to help raise awareness and funds for the cure. Big night for a big cause. Oh yeah, and we LOVED the movie. I even liked it better than the first one!
