While we'd rather not draw attention to some birthdays, others are definitely worth feting. One such example: PureWow's one-year anniversary, which we celebrated last week in New York in appropriate Wow fashion.

At a private home on the Upper West Side (with stunning views of Central Park), we gathered together our friends and supporters for an evening of great food--we're still dreaming of those mushroom risotto balls--and drinks courtesy of Medea Vodka and Domaine Carneros Winery.

Many influential women--Renée Zellweger, Whoopi Goldberg, Arianna Huffington and Lesley Stahl, to name a few--stopped by to toast our success. And we were also joined by tons of other trendsetters and sophisticates such as Liz Smith, Jean Chatzky, Cynthia McFadden and Joni Evans.

As at any uptown social gathering, there was much talk of New York fashion and events, but discussion also touched upon philanthropy, social good and everyone's favorite PureWow discoveries.

We're super proud of all we've accomplished in the past year and can't wait to bring you more Wow (in more cities) in 2012. Keep your eyes peeled for PureWow Chicago and a Recipes Edition, coming soon!
