A Weekend Spent In My Favorite City

This past weekend I escaped to one of my favorite cities for combination of both work and leisure that left me hating waking up this morning!

Friday another coworker and I took the day off work so we could travel down to Charlotte to attend a Child Life conference at Levine Children's Hospital. We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel in South Park and was greeted at the door with champagne and pumpkin cannolis... talk about a great start to the weekend!
 Our hotel was absolutely amazing, I included a couple pictures because I could not get over how nice it was! It had the most delicious fall/cinnamon smell throughout the lobby and I couldn't help myself from asking what candle they were using- Bath and Body Winter Nights... obviously this will soon make an appearance in my apartment.

Saturday I was off to my conference and was SO excited to actually see people I knew! I was able to catch up with a few girls I graduated with and also some that I interned with. Levine Children's Hospital is also absolutely amazing, as is their Child Life Department!

Once the conference was over I headed over to South Park to do a bit of shopping... I obviously couldn't be that close and not go! I was able to use a bit of self of control and only left with a few new purchases from Sephora...

 While I was at the store I mentioned to one of the makeup consultants I was looking for a new foundation. She immediately ushered me over to the Tarte section and could not stop raving about this the foundation and the concealer. So far I am absolutely obsessed and could not be happier with both products! 

Also while I was at Sephora I decided to check out a moisturizer I have heard nothing but rave reviews about...
 I decided to only get a sample to try it out because it is not cheap but would love to hear opinions on this product or a good moisturizer for fall/winter that wont leave my face shiny!

As for Sunday... it was off to the mountains to go apple picking! More on this tomorrow!

Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Yours truly,
