Well I just have to say that I got my DIVAbetic on BIG TIME this past Saturday in Philadelphia, PA!
Over 680 Philly and Tri-State area Divabetics braved the monsoon like weather and came together at the Philadelphia Hilton on Saturday March 8th, for a day of glamour; diabetes education, and a chance to walk the cat walk and strut their fabulousness for all to see.
It was my first time ever at a Divabetic Makeover Your Diabetes Event and it will not be my last!
To see women with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes congregate, learn about, and embrace who they are, (diabetes and all) was both amazing and empowering.
The women had the chance to meet with both beauty and healthcare professionals for a total makeover - both inside and out.
I got the chance to meet the fabulous Mother Love, (who truly is FABULOUS and VERY funny) talk & learn with wonderful diabetes educators, get a few beauty tips, (cause a little “glam” goes a long way) from professional hair & makeup artists, and learned some Fashionista tips from professional stylists.
Yours Truly even got to walk on the catwalk – MEOW.
If a Divabetic Makeover Your Diabetes Event comes to a city near you, do yourself a favor and ATTEND. It won’t cost you anything to go, but the benefits you’ll take away with you, knowledge, empowerment, and a wonderful sense of self worth are priceless.
