As a blogger, my tech gear is everything, so I'm excited to announce that I'll be an HP Ambassador, blogging with their new HP ENVY x2 during Fashion Week through March.

To kick things off, HP is co-hosting a Project Runway Designer Reunion Event on February 9 in NY and wants to give two lucky Budget Babe readers the chance to win tickets to the event! I'll be picking 2 winners and each winner can bring one guest.

The event starts with a VIP reception hosted by HP and Style Coalition from 6-7 pm, including a champagne toast to the Project Runway alumni and a discussion on fashion and technology. Notable members from the media and design community will be in attendance. I'll be there, too!

What I'm Wearing: National Wear Red Day

Today is National Wear Red Day, did you remember to wear red!? I'm showing my support as a blogger ambassador for The Heart Truth® campaign in a red stripe sweater and mini hearts manicure. In case you're not familiar, National Wear Red Day helps raise awareness about women's heart health. And you can get involved, too (even if you're not wearing red!): Post a heart photo on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ShowYourHeart to show your support and trigger a $1 donation from Diet Coke® to heart health programs, up to $100,000.

You can also follow me on Twitter and Instagram for live updates from The 2013 Red Dress Collection Fashion ShowSM, which I'll be covering this February 6 in New York City. The beautiful Minka Kelly is the celebrity ambassador and I hear she'll be wearing an original red dress created by Oscar de la Renta. Should be stunning!
