Ecostiletto Green Blogger Convention 2009

The Ecostiletto Green Blogger Convention panel plus Rachel, the organizer! From Left to Right, that’s Jane Buckingham of Trendera, Kim Barnouin author of Skinny Bitch, Siel Ju AKA Green LA Girl, Rachel Sarnoff, founder of Ecostiletto, Starre Vartan, editor of Eco Chick, Lauren Selman from Reel Green Media, and Jen Boulden, cofounder of Idealbite.

I had so much fun talking green blogging and social media at GreenBloggerCon in Los Angeles a few weeks back. Thanks so much to Rachel Sarnoff, founder of Ecostiletto, for putting the fantastic event together, which included a lively panel discussion among the above green ladies, a vegan fashion show with the Project Green Search contestants, and free makeup and massage sessions.

Check out the video below by EcoDivasTV to get some of the fun flavor of the event!

I got a mini makeover!
