This past Monday I attended the Shorty Awards in NYC. I was thrilled to be a finalist in News and Media in the Healthy Living category and I extend heartfelt congratulations to the winner, Kris Carr (author of Crazy Sexy Cancer and Crazy Sexy Wellness).

Click here for a list of all the winners and to watch a video of the event. My personal favorite moments include Bill Nye the Science Guy busting some serious dance moves, Comedian Hannibal Buress’s entire acceptance speech, and an amazing performance by Panic at the Disco.

I didn’t get a trophy, but I did have a wonderful evening. I also got a super cool selfie stick as a party favor–something I never knew I couldn’t live without until I had one!
