(Caitlin) I love to travel and every trip is special in its own way, but this trip was extra special! Every year with Stella & Dot, we have the chance to earn an all inclusive trip to a fabulous, tropical destination. And for the first time, I earned Glam Getaway in Costa Rica!!
They arranged the plane ticket, hotel, food, everything! All I had to do was pack and show up. I've never been to an all inclusive resort before so didn't really know what to expect.
I met several other Stella & Dot stylists at the airport and they whisked us away to the gorgeous Dreams Resort. Champagne and hors d'oeuvres at check-in was a great start!
We went to a Mexican restaurant with three other stylists and a few executives from Stella's home office team. It was so great to meet other stylists, share stories, and chat about the future.
After dinner, we headed to a night club on the resort where we danced, continuously requested N*sync and Backstreet Boys, and had a blast!
The next morning we had a gorgeous brunch with the executive team and got to hear about the future of the company, see future product, and ask questions.
The rest of the day was spent by the pool, with a few drinks, and catching up with our incredible team of RockSTARS (no really - that's our team name!).
That night we went to sushi with several other stylists and ended the evening with a small group at the piano bar. Loved spending so much time with these three fabulous #bossbabes.
The follow day was another gorgeous day by the pool followed by the most amazing night on the beach! We walked out to the sun setting and Stella had taken over.
We had a delicious buffet dinner, dessert bar, and dance party to celebrate 2016!
It was the best experience meeting fellow stylists from all over the world, having access to our home office team, and snapping a picture with our inspiring CEO, Jessica Herrin, was the perfect way to end the big celebration!
Now on to earn next years trip to Mexico!!
