Scenes from LA, The Daytime Emmys

As we drove downtown to the Orpheum Theater, the smoke was thick. This looked like a scene from a disaster movie.

The Orpheum, venue for this years Daytime Emmys, is old and ornate. I love the architecture inside and out.
I tried to imagine what the theater looked like back in the golden era of Hollywood.

Inside, gearing up for the event.

Outside you will find tents are in place, sound equipment and craft services set up, talent arrivals. It all happened in the back alley of the Orpheum. On a very hot day.
I love the thrill of an event. I get excited when I have the opportunity to attend something out of the ordinary. In this case, On 3 Productions invited me to cover the gifting lounge for the Daytime Emmys and I couldn't have been more excited to go!

After much deliberation, I decided to wear a comfortable yet funky cotton sundress with a chunky turquoise necklace and strappy metallic heels which gave me a blister. I heeded Brett Freedman's makeup advice about doing the cats eye and bought the liquid liner from Sephora to do it. I'm always a little nervous at these events, as if anyone is going to even look twice at me. I'm a silly girl.

The event was held at the site of the awards show, downstairs, in a private area. I needed an escort to get me inside. I don't know a lot of the daytime talent, mostly because I'm sitting at my computer not watching TV but I instantly recognized Gilles Marini when I walked in the lounge area.

Around the room were vendors, displaying their products and chatting with the talent and press.
I enjoyed meeting everyone and talking about new products, always trying to figure out how I can plan a Reader Giveaway! I'm craving the Starbucks ice cream which works hand in hand with Crunch fitness, if you get my drift.

Vendors at the event included:

ANONAME JEANS Women’s Denim jeans:
BOOKSONBOARD: the Largest Independent eBookstore

CHEWYLOU DESIGNS Clothing for Men, Women and Kids:

COBY ELECTRONICS SNAPP CAM3000 Portable Handheld Digital Camcorder and DP-240 Portable 2.4” Digital Photo Album with MP3 Playback.

NATURE MADE SAM-E COMPLETE “Discover Your Good Mood Essentials Kit”

VERA BRADLEY Imperial Toile Large Duffle & Fall 2009 Accessories:

And Jamie Kreitman Crystals Flip Flops

A few of the celebrities who received cool gifts included Vanessa Williams, Jennie Garth, Colin Eggelsfield, Gilles Marini, Lori Loughlin, Cameron Mathison, Susan Lucci, Alex Trebek and many more!

After we finished inside, we drifted outside to the front of the theater where a commercial was filming. I saw Erik Estrada and heard one of the voices from Sesame Street. CHIPS and Elmo, brought me back to the 1980's!

A big thanks to On 3 for inviting Hello Dollface to feature the event!
