The "It Gets Better" project wish wall ... so inspiring

Saturday afternoon was one of the most intense days we've ever had as bloggers -- and we are not going to lie, it's probably a day our feet will never forget either.  Note to self, always always always bring a comfortable pair of shoes to FW if you want to truly enjoy all of the events.  Thankfully, in the middle of all the madness, we were able to visit and relax at all the lounges including the 'It Gets Better' project lounge where we wrote on the 'wish wall', met amazing people to include Veronica from RueLaLa, sipped on Belvedere cocktails, and enjoyed all the perks like free massages, hair & make up, and great DJ tunes.  We also stopped by the InStyle lounge for a relaxing couple of hours and networked with icons like Steven Kolb, Irina Pantaeva, and many more.  MBFW lounges offer the much needed down time in between shows, and we truly are thankful for it!!!
