Day One - NYC

Day One – NYC

Day One – NYC

How fitting that Avon decided to celebrate us in New York City, the beauty capital of the world! We knew we would get to visit Avon’s state-of-the-art Research and Development Facility and also go to the Global Headquarters! So exciting!

My flight to New York’s JFK Airport was pretty uneventful, 5 hours in the air. I made sure I had enough magazines to keep me occupied.

Plus, I had paid $3.99 to download a movie onto my iphone to watch. But once in the air, the airline offered the SAME movie as the in flight entertainment for free! Ha!

Unfortunately the movie was kind of boring and I ended up taking a snooze for an hour or so. When I awoke, we were in New York!

Avon had arraigned for a Town Car to be waiting for the Makeup Mavens as each one of us arrived.

I had to walk SO FAR from getting off the plane to where the Town Cars were going to pick us up, that when I got there, my car had already left. They did try and call me but my phone was on silent and didn’t vibrate. OOPS!!

I called the Town Car company back and they got another driver to me right away. What a way to start out my trip! Ha!

First sight of the city!

Got to our hotel Double Tree in Times Square and was amazed at all of the activity in Times Square on a Sunday evening. After checking in, a few of us Mavens decided to see what NYC was all about!

Avon had also given us a $50 gift card to the restaurant Ginger’s in the hotel for our first evening, so the few Mavens that had arrived had dessert  together and got to know each other.

We did call it an early evening because we knew that Avon had an exciting itinerary planned, and we wanted to make sure we were at our best for the days that followed.

What’s Next?
