My CES adventure this year has been nothing short of amazing! For the last three days, I have been absorbing all that is fab, fly, hip, and tech at the annual Show. But one of the best parts about CES is the opportunity to attend events off-site that give you the chance to mix it up with a crowd you may have a lot in common with.
On Tuesday night, I attended the Clever Girls Collective Ladies Who Tech Happy Hour, which took place at the fabulous Wynn/Encore at BARTOLOTTA. It was hosted by Beth Blecherman (@TechMama), who I finally got to meet in person. We noshed on exquisite appetizers and finger foods that were created with my foodie instinct in mind. We also got the pleasure of meeting peeps from Sony Electronics and Kingston, who gave us some glam swag including a new Sony Bloggie Live video camera and a Kingston Wi-Drive. A few lucky chicks won a Wii as well as an Epiphanie Bag, which I have been wanting for like, forever!
But, the highlight of the event was meeting Project Runway Season 9 winner Anya Ayoung-Chee, who was in the house on behalf of HP. Anya, who is a Trini and proud to say it, beat out all the competition last season on Project Runway with her fabulous fashion that boasts an aesthetic that is nothing short of amazing.
I was able to have a short chat with Anya, and she explained what is next up for her: (excuse the volume, us Ladies Who Tech girls are quite a rowdy bunch. LOL)
As you can see, CES isn’t just about high tech items and futuristic gadgets. It’s also about ladies, who are consumers, who make the decisions about what to buy in the home. And we sorta know a thing or two when it comes to technology and what works well.
Special thanks to Clever Girls Collective for the invitation!
