From July 28-August 1, 2019, I attended the "One Life" Paparazzi Convention at the MGM Grande in Las Vegas, Nevada. This was my third year at convention and I have to say it just gets better every year! We were greeted with an amazing embroidered backpack filled with Paparazzi swag. They do love to spoil us!
This year, with over 13,000 attendees (by some estimates), the conference opened on Monday evening with a concert by country music star, Kane Brown. It was super fun and although I'm lame and didn't know his music, I loved every minute! Before the concert, we had an amazing dinner with my upline, Shelley Ramsey's Team Superwomen & Men at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant.
Paparazzi swag that filled our bags when we arrived!
Kimberly Lawson and I are SO EXCITED to be here!
My sponsor, Shelley Ramsey. She is an amazing leader!
WOOHOO! DAY ONE
The first actual day of the conference (Tuesday), we were excited to preview the 2019 Zi Collection signature pieces. These pieces are named for 10 Paparazzi consultants who earned top spots this year. We were then able to purchase these necklace sets and some Zi Collection bracelets (can't sell those, sorry!). We still have several in stock, although some have sold out. Click here to shop for 2019 Zi Collection Necklaces.Also, don't forget we still have a few of the 2018 Zi Collection Necklaces left and they will become collector's items so grab those while you can!
We heard inspirational and informational talks from each of our founders - Trent Kirby, Ryan Reeve, Misty Kirby and Chani Reeve. The overarching theme is that Paparazzi is not just about $5 jewelry. We need to use our business to change the world! We then heard from an amazing speaker, Eric Thomas (known as ET). He challenged us to believe that "I can. I will. I must." He was very motivating and encouraging. I left knowing I'm not giving enough to my business and want to do more!
Wednesday morning we got to see a glimpse of the amazing 2019 Paparazzi Fall line! Founder Misty Kirby and designer Kassidee Beams brought out models wearing clothes straight off the runway and highlighted trends we will see this fall including texture, a continuation of the prairie look, and pastel neon. I'm not allowed to show photos or video from the runway show but here is a glimpse at some of the pieces I got to order from the fall line!
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: THE BLACK & WHITE GALA
Wednesday night we got all gussied up and went into the MGM Garden arena to recognize our Papa sisters and brothers who achieved excellence this year. I was recognized for Crown Club 10 (got my crystal trophy!), and Life of the Party Bronze. My personally sponsored consultants on my team were recognized for Crown Club 10, Life of the Party Silver, Life of the Party Bronze and Producer - congrats Kimberly Lawson! It was a great night and wonderful celebration of achievements. In fact, this year Paparazzi announced TWO new Life of the Party designations because our consultants keep reaching the bar. It was an amazing night!
WE ARE TALKING FULL GLAM, PEOPLE. LASHES AND EVERYTHING!

ALMOST MISSED SEEING MY NAME - CAUGHT IT JUST BEFORE IT SCROLLED. 🙂
Thursday we were treated to a sneak peek at the rest of the 2019 Zi Collection (I can't post pics here - sorry!). And then an amazing panel of some of the top consultants in the company. Founder Trent Kirby asked each of them questions and their answers were very inspiring and informative. Loved the panel and my uplines Mandi Heinsch and Michelle Egan! Afterward, we heard from an amazing speaker, Michael Crossland. His life journey will make you cry, laugh and sit in amazement.
Thursday night we wrapped up an amazing convention with a concert from the JONAS BROTHERS!!!!!!! I can't post pics of that but suffice it to say it was amazing! Here are some other fun photos from our time at convention.
