As many of you may know, I was supposed to embark on my World Tour this week by attending several events held at the Cannes Film Festival. While this sounded like a spectacular opportunity to take the Tech Savvy Mama brand global, it has gone au revoir or kaput.
However, I was able to take a fabulous trip last week
Even though I wasn’t able to wear my gorgeous
Yummie Tummie Maxi Dress
on the red carpet as planned
I’ll enjoy being incredibly stylish on my couch while watching
I loved coming home to find that the Yahoo! Mother Board
surprised me with a delivery of
Huge thanks T-Mobile for overnighting me an international SIM card to use while in Cannes, Yummie Tummie for outfitting me with a Maxi Dress and Chiffon Tier Top so I could be red carpet ready (they are letting me keep them as a very generous consolation prize despite my offer to return them), and Yahoo! Mother Board for the bouquet of flowers that greeted me at my doorstep when I got home.
While I could be incredibly disappointed and mad about the fact that this trip came about at the last minute and I made myself crazy making all the necessary arrangements (last minute plane ticket for my mom to come from CA to serve as grandma-in-charge), I’m not. Indeed it was an amazing opportunity but I have been very fortunate to have had some incredible opportunities over the last two years.
When I first started blogging, I dreamt of working with companies like LeapFrog, PBS, Yahoo! , T-Mobile, AT&T, Microsoft, and HP to review the latest and greatest gadgets. Now, not only do I get to review some pretty cool stuff, but I’ve developed relationships that I never thought I would have and work for companies that seemed so out of reach when I first started. And that’s pretty cool for a techie loving teacher!
So yes, I could be disappointed and say mean things about how terrible the company/PR firm/life-is-because-I-don’t-get-to-go-wah! but I’m pretty grateful that my little hobby has become so much more, for the many companies and PR people that I get to work with on a regular basis, and for all the other cool things I get to do.
I was not asked to post about Yummie Tummie or T-Mobile in exchange for the items that they provided for my trip. I am incredibly grateful that I get to work with Yummie Tummie as a brand ambassador, am part of the Clever Girls Collective Clever 1000, and write freelance articles for T-Mobile’s 100% You Magazine where I get to try out their latest phones.
