As I’ve already mentioned way too many times recently, this week I’m hanging out in Southern California. So far, my visit has been fabulous. Thanks to many of your recommendations via email, blog comments, and Instagram, I’ve found lots of wonderful things to do. Yesterday I walked Hollywood Boulevard and checked out all of the famous stars. I also visited The Grove to do a little shopping. And, I had my first In-N-Out burger which was as delicious as I was hoping it would be.
While all of that was enough to make the day pretty fabulous, last night I attended Shakira’s Album Release Party at the IHeartRadio Theater. Honestly, it all still feels like a dream. I was able to take part in this event thanks to my friends at Target and their Target Inner Circle.
Shakira walked the red carpet and I was literally inches from her. At one point when she walked passed we brushed shoulders. I really don’t get star struck, but that was pretty amazing. Shakira has partnered with Target to release her new self-titled album. The album at Target has three bonus tracks. Love that! I’ll take all the extra Shakria I can get. Hearing her talk on the red carpet was so awesome. She truly is a sweet and warm person.
Completely irrelevant, but Ross Matthews (who I think is hilarious) also walked the red carpet. He had me cracking up.
Anyway, get on over to the Target nearest you and check out Shakira’s new album today. I’m totally loving her single, Empire (the video was just released this morning!). 23 is another favorite. It’s an amazing ballad / love song. She talks a little bit about 23 in this clip from the party.
Stay tuned to Instagram – later today I just may be giving away a copy of the album. Hint. Hint. Also check out IBC in the coming weeks. I’ll be sharing fun ideas for hosting an album release party of your own. Plus I’ll have more to give away.
Have a fabulous Tuesday!
