First Event

There are so many people who made this year's First Event amazing and memorable for me, far more than I can name here.  It was my fourth First Event I've attended, and even though it was the more hectic and more work than the other three I've been to, it was also the most fun. 

Special thanks needs to go out to John at Glamour Boutique for including me again this year, and for making the Friday night Fashion Show a huge success.  Anyone who wishes to get a DVD of the Fashion Show should contact John at  DVD's should be ready sometime this week.

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone's 2011 is off to a great start!  I know January has brought snow to most of the US, so hopefully lots of snow now will mean an early spring (hey, a girl can hope, can't she?)

My new year celebration was very low-key.  I stayed at my sister's with her, her S/O, my spouse, and of course Dick Clark.  Quiet but fun ringing in the new year with just the four of us.  I know there were a lot of great options for everyone to go out, but it just wasn't in the cards for me this year.

The next big excitement is, of course, First Event.  Put on by the Tiffany Club of New England, First Event draws several hundred transgendered individuals and supporter from all over.  It's held at the Marriott in Peabody, MA and between the workshops, vendor area, and evening activities there's definitely something for everyone.  It also makes for a very friendly and supportive first time out for those that may currently be closeted. 

This will be my 4th year attending First Event, and every year it just seems to sneak up on me.  But now it's right around the corner, less than a week away, and I have to get myself in gear and decide what to bring with me.  I will be with the Glamour Boutique booth again and have all my makeup with me ready to do makeovers on anyone who needs one.  Makeovers are discounted for the event, and I hope that many of you will stop by and say hi even if you're not looking for makeup help.

Ringing in the new year was the Tiffany Club's First Event.  This was my third year attending and as always I had a blast.  It was great to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.  The highlight of the weekend for me was the fashion show on Friday night.  I was asked to do makeup for three of the models and help out backstage.  Luckily, I was able to sneak out often enough to watch many of the models strut their stuff down the catwalk.  Great job to everyone who made this and the rest of the weekend so much fun!
