CityLine Blogger Special

I was invited to be an audience member for a CityLine show that focused on women who blogs and tweets. The show was aired last Tuesday, March 29th, at 9AM and repeated at 2PM the same day (the show was not a 'live' show and was taped prior to that day). The show can also be found online as well. I didn't get a chance to watch the show on TV as I was studying for an exam; well, even if I didn't have an exam I would've been at work anyway. Here's a blurry screen shot of me clapping (we had to clap a lot, and I mean, a lot) ^_*

We were seated according to what we blog about. There were four types of bloggers who attended that day: decor, beauty, food, and mommy bloggers. If you watch the show at around the 1:08 minute mark, you will notice that there were very few food bloggers compared to decor, beauty, and mommy bloggers. Just an observation ^_^

Vicky (@momwhoruns) is also a food blogger who I've been tweeting with for the longest time now. We have never met so it was really cool to bump into her at the taping =D Check out her blog

Four elite bloggers featured on the show were (from left to right): Leigh-Ann (@LeighAnnAllaire) from Benjamin Moore (@BenjaminMoore), Tracy (@tracymakeup) from, Erica (@yummymummyclub) from and Claire (@tanseyclaire) from

Not only did we not have to put away our cell phones, we were encouraged to tweet during the taping.

After the taping, we all headed over to The Ritz Carlton Hotel for Cityline's first ever Tweetup =D Fanciest tweetup I've ever been to, that's for sure ^_*

We got to take home these goodies too:

L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara, Hard Candy Glossy Lip Pencil, MAC Grease Paint Stick  ‘French Quarter’, Vasanti Liquid Cover Up Concealer

Loose leaf tea and filters from Nourishtea

2 Stage Knife Sharpener from Lee Valley Tools

And saving the best for last...

ShaToBu High Waist to Knee Shaper, the "first-ever shaper scientifically proven to help you shape, tone, and burn more calories during your everyday activities"

I'm super excited to try this because food blogging is making me FAT >_<

I had lots of fun that day meeting other bloggers and attending the fanciest tweetup I've been to to-date :) Thank you Cityline!
