Taste of L'Oreal Weekend Day 1

I blogged about the Taste of L'Oreal weekend back when I got invited in December but now that I am sitting in the lobby of the W New York, its real. I'm here under the consumer products devision and it is my dream to join this firm! I'm so very lucky that I get to experience this with my partner in crime Darian. 

We left on the train this morning from DC and slept the whole way up. When we got into the city we had to wait in a long line for a taxi to the W hotel... little did we know that are several W hotels in New York City. We pulled up to the W Times Square and they couldn't pull up our reservations! Thank goodness L'Oreal had sent us an email yesterday with the CORRECT address. and we were off to the W on 49th.

The hotel is beautiful and I was lucky enough to get a suite. Its gorgeous! 

I'm a little sad that we are not rooming together tho :-(

At the actual event tonight we had a student networking reception followed by an hour of general overview of L'Oreal and then we broke up for another hour and a half of our individual devisions. The consumer products devision had a panel and really cute presentation about all of the brands under the consumer products umbrella. 
  • L'Oreal Paris
  • Maybelline NY
  • Garnier 
  • SoftSheen Carson
  • Essie 
After, we had a networking reception with recruiters and they served some yummy looking food but being vegan I couldn't eat any of it. Thank goodness the W has free apples! So I'll leave you with a few our of my window on the 7th floor of the Waldorf Astoria. Iconic NY.
